Bennett, a man needs a nom de guerre, something that his comrades and subordinates can cling to as they rush off into the abyss to face the enemy.
When I served on the Russian Front in WWII, I would have been proud to be called "Ned Der Zerstörer." I would have happily accepted the title, "Ned, Exterminatore" during the Second Crusade, or "Ned le Destructeur" when I served with Napoleon. But alas, you are not.
Great soldiers (and even not-so-great) often have wacky nicknames!
"Old Blood and Guts" -- Patton
"The Red Baron" (German, der Rote Baron) — Manfred von Richthofen
"Lakeitel (German, "lackey") - Wilhelm Keitel, German World War II general staff officer
"Desperate Frankie" — Louis Franchet d'Espčrey, French general during World War I
"Grumble" — William E. Jones, Confederate general
"Smiling Al" -- Kesselring
""The Auk" — Claude Auchinleck, British Indian Army Field Marshal
"Autie" — George Custer
"Bad Old Man" — Jubal Early, Confederate Army general
"The Bear" — Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr
"Howling Mad" — Holland M. Smith, U.S. Marine Corps general
"Big Al, (The Sailor's Pal)" - Al Konetzni, American Admiral
"Bomber" — Arthur T. Harris, British Air Chief Marshal during World War II
"Boots" — Frederick C. Blesse, fighter ace
Think of your troops! Who would you rather follow into battle, Ned the Destroyer, or Bennett the shrink?
I may lose the will to fight on.
