Nigel Cumberbatch

2. Were you named after anyone? Did you have any nicknames as a child?

I don’t know if I was named after anyone.  That was never a conversation I had with my parents.  Nigel was a common English name for boys born in England from the 1950s to the 1970s. The number of boys given the first name Nigel peaked in 1963 to 5,529.

As a child I had a few nicknames.  In middle school I was called “Lil Man,” because I was short and at times in my friends opinion, acted like a fully grown man.  In my early teens I wore a gold tooth that solidify this name.  In high school my friends called me “frock(dress) tail.”  They alleged that I was alway chasing “skirts.”

I prefer my nickname today, which is NIGE’. It means: Now I’ve Got Everything, including my beautiful kids, Mieshia, Melessa, Marquia, Malik, and Mitchell
