I stayed at a Hoilday Inn Express last night, so I feel smarter. First, lets figure out what is a Nickname. The compound word ekename, literally meaning "additional name", was attested as early as 1303. This word was derived from the Old English phrase eaca "an increase", related to eacian "to increase". By the fifteenth century, the misdivision of the syllables of the phrase "an ekename" led to its reanalysis as "a nekename". Though the spelling has changed, the pronunciation and meaning of the word have remained relatively stable ever since. ' Yeah baby I Wiki that, so whats the best Nickname for Cam Newton? Well that I don't know, after the jump lets look at some past NFL'ers and see if we can figure it out.
Joseph "Joe" Montana, Jr., (born June 11, 1956), nicknamed Joe Cool, Golden Joe, The Golden Great and Comeback Joe. Wow, he had a few great nicknames huh'. He was very calm under pressure, had at nack for knowing what to do. Golden Joe and The Golden Great, can't be a four-time winning Super Bowl Champion, and a 8-time Pro-Bowler without being Golden. All that jewerly he had, made him pure Gold. And Comebacks, come on my friends do I need to explain. Yes I do, this guy was the best forget Jake Delhomme ( which is my boy ) In his career, Joe Montana has 31 comebacks in the 4th quarter, and three comebacks out of four of his Super Bowl wins.

Walter Payton (July 25, 1954 – November 1, 1999) was an American football player who spent his entire professional career with the National Football League's Chicago Bears. Walter Payton was known around the NFL as "Sweetness". He is remembered as one of the most prolific running backs in the history of American football. Payton, a nine-time Pro Bowl selectee, once held the league's record for most career rushing yards, touchdowns, carries, yards from scrimmage, all-purpose yards, and many other categories.
Joseph William "Joe" Namath, nicknamed "Broadway Joe" or "Joe Willie", The apex of his career was his performance in the Jets' January 1969 16-7 win over the Baltimore Colts in the third World Championship Game after the AFL-NFL merger. Namath was named MVP of Super Bowl III. Three days before the game, Namath responded to a heckler with the now-famous line: "We're gonna win the game. I guarantee it." His words eventually made headlines across the country, but were dismissed by most observers as mere bravado.

What I like the most about Cam Newton is he has some flair, and thats where I chose my Nicknames for him. First, Cameron " The ICON " Newton. Well this one he pretty much gave to himself. He see's himself as an entertainer/ ICON, meaning he can be the face of not just a Franchise, but the whole NFL.
Second, I chose Sir Cam Newton. Just like Sir Isaac Newton, Cam Newton is a genius. Lol, just playing don't take that to seriously, the names match up and sound cool.
Last, I chose Camera Newton. Well he likes being in front of that lens. The spotlight, entertaining his fans is big on Cam's list. A real Diva you could say.
Well these are a few names I comed up with. Vote below on them or comment a name you like. Try to be ginuwine, And to the guys that don't like Cam Newton, please remember this is a young kid. So, don't be to ugly with what you come up with , be clever and make us laugh. That way no one doesn't take offence too harshly. Thank you, And let's have some fun with this. : - )
