Alanzinho - StabŠk - Midfielder

Hmm, I'm looking for more obvious ones, or more well known
and not anything that has the name in them, i.e Alanzinho

Alanzinho - StabŠk - Midfielder

Ignore me as that is not a forename

Alanzinho = little Alan

Alan is a forename while Alanzinho is a nickname for Alan.

Simple solution to your problem give all your players nick names for example

Steven Gerard call him Steve :D

All these players with one word names , most have 4/5 names , but they use Kaka or Robinho for short , e.g. Robinho said this is what his uncle used to call him when he was young , so he stuck with this name,

I'm sure Ronaldinho's real name is Ronaldo but he said a lot of his mates called him Ronaldinho which means little Ronaldo. I think this is correct.

yeh in Brazil he played under the name ronaldo, but when he moved to europe he didn't want to be another ronaldo, so he changed it.
pato is just a nickname, meaning "the duck", because some people thought he looked like a duck (obviously), which i can kinda see

There must be over 1000 Ronaldo's that play professional football so I don't think that's very specific.

I'd prefer a team full of Phil Jagileka.

No, seriously. I would. Jagielka can play almostevery position, played in goal v Arsenal 2 years ago and got a clean sheet!



Also, why Jamie Carragher? From your name, I would have thought Steven Gerrard would be mroe appropriate.

A big big part of the portuguese and brazilian players have "singular player names".

All these players with one word names , most have 4/5 names , but they use Kaka or Robinho for short , e.g. Robinho said this is what his uncle used to call him when he was young , so he stuck with this name,

Kakß (or rather Cacß) is a nickname for Ricardo. Robinho means little Robson.


yeh in Brazil he played under the name ronaldo, but when he moved to europe he didn't want to be another ronaldo, so he changed it.
pato is just a nickname, meaning "the duck", because some people thought he looked like a duck (obviously), which i can kinda see

Ronaldinho (the current Milan one) is known as Ronaldinho Ga˙cho in Brazil while the Ronaldo who was the top goalscorer in the 2002 WC used to be known here as Ronaldinho. Some people still call him "Ronaldinho".

The Pato in Alexandre Pato refers to his city of birth (Pato Branco, meaning white duck).



Mozart from spartak moscow im sure thats his first name.

Mozart is his first name indeed.



Yer... Suppose we should suggest some names...

Ilsinho?

Ilsinho means little Ilson, so I don't know if it's something the original poster wants.

J˘ is a nickname for JoŃo, by the way.

Might help out if I mention the types of names I'm not looking for

Kaka
Ronaldinho
Elano
Robinho
Ilsinho
Ronaldo

Basically anything that doesn't look like a real name

What I am looking for is things like
Charles
Fred
David
Alan
Jordan
Frederic
Etc

That should clear things up?
