A celebrity is popular in our society and in the global media.

Celebrity words come from Latin the word celebritatum, and are related to the verb celebrate, which means to honor something with the proper rituals. The word 'celebrity' refers to an individual known to the public, such as actors, sports figures, entertainers, and others, for their achievements in their respective areas, other than who is endorsing the product.

Celebrities significantly impact people's lives by serving as role models for individuals looking for direction or counsel. People influence celebrities.

The simplest way to express emotion is through a nickname. Similar to kissing someone on the cheek or holding their hands while they walk, it is used to express love and support. When someone is nicknaming a celebrity, they are just expressing their love for the celebrity (singer, artist, sportsman, and more.), and they want to give him/her a name that can be easily remembered. They usually don't mean to hurt anyone, and it's a good sign if the person receives the nickname. Every celebrity has a little something special about them, which makes them stand out from the crowd.

Nicknames are very common among friends or in sports. Sports people sometimes have nicknames written on their jerseys instead of their proper names.

The Salish people in Canada refer to Queen Elizabeth as 'Mother of all People,' 'Paramount Chief' to many in Fiji, 'The White Heron' to the Maori of New Zealand, and 'Her Majesty' to too many of us in the UK. Gary is the nickname of Queen Elizabeth, and it's very hard to imagine anyone more terrifying than her. When the young prince gets hurts himself while running around the palace, he calls out for 'Gary,' William had a tough time saying 'grandma' or 'granny' when he was little. Even though the nickname didn't catch on, it wasn't unexpected if Prince George and Princess Charlotte got their great-nickname, grandmother's 'gan-gan,' from 'Gary.'

Some nicknames are not just famous; they are the main names with which we recognize the celebrity. Few people only know his real name outside of his nickname, which later became their stage name. Here are so many examples of celebrity nicknames like Keanu Reeves'The Wall' actor was so good as a hockey goalie; and that earned him this nickname. Hugh Jackman 'sticks' is a muscular fitness enthusiast; growing up, he used to have very skinny legs; that's why he earned that moniker. Bella Thorne's 'Pickle' is because of Bella's love for pickle juice. Liam Payne: 'Cheesy Head' because of his love for cheesy chips.

Some nicknames are traditionally associated with the person's surname in England. A person with the surname 'Clark' would be nicknamed 'nobby.' Examples of a few surname nicknames are Chalky White and Bunny Warren.

Few other English nicknames are associated with a person's origins. A Scotsman would go by the moniker 'Jock,' and a Welshman might go by the moniker 'Taffy.' Ironically, some nicknames make reference to a person's physical features, like 'Lofty' for someone who is short in stature or 'curly' for someone who is bald.

Nicknames are usually applied to a person by others and are not chosen by the recipients themselves. Some nicknames are shortened or modified variations of a person's real name. Sometimes we use contraction of a longer name like Margret to great.

For nicknames, we use the first or last letter of a name, like 'DJ' for Danial James. A few times, a nickname can come from the front of a name, the middle of a name, or the end of a name; here are a few examples: Chris comes from Christopher; Ed comes from Edward; Drew comes from Andrew; Liz from Elizabeth; Bel comes from Bella.

When we are describing popular music artists, they use honorific nicknames are used by media or fans to indicate the importance of an artist; they are often religious. Honorific nicknames have been used for describing leading figures in various areas of activity, like industry, sports, and the media. Aaliyah is known as the 'princess of R&B'; she is an American singer. We know Louis Armstrong as the 'King of jazz," who is an American trumpeter and singer.
