What i mean by nicknames is names that aren’t obvious/regular/shortened form of their own name (e.g. nik, robbie etc)
I mean completely different names that they were called by friends/family/acquaintances/peers etc.

Nikolas Cruz | “crazy boy” (by school administrator), “wolf” (by his JROTC squadron)
Robert Hawkins | “Bobert” (by his younger sisters)
Seung-Hui Cho | “bighead” (high school bullies), “trombone boy” (middle school peers), “question mark” (known as by his college classmates), there was also a derogatory nickname he was called in a college communications class but classmates don’t  remember what it was
Adam Lanza | “DDR guy” (mall worker)
Martin Bryant | “Silly Martin, no sense, no feeling” (classmates from the 70s)
Jesse Osborne | “Little jesse” (middle school bullies)

He's not a massive shooter, but Timothy Mcveigh was called "Noodle Mcveigh" for being so skinny.

Some people used to tease Eric pekka by saying "Pikku-Eric" (Pikku is small, because of his short stature)

Dylan klebold, Sue used to call him "Sunshine boy" I heard bullies call him "Goofy" or "Noodle" to annoy him but never knew if it was really true.

IIRC it was just a racial slur. Something like gook/chinko/slanty.

Evan Ramsey: Evan was often bullied at school. According to his friends, he was not very smart and was often called "retarded," "zombie," or "brainless."
According to his friends, Ramsey complained of being picked on and teased by other students, to the point where he would only be addressed as "Screech," a character from the TV show Saved by the Bell.

Wait how did you know that? I always thought that it was just a tiny bit of redacted info in the fbi report haha

Peter Odighizuwa was nicknamed "Shooter" because of his abrasive and paranoid behavior, which pretty much hit the nail on the head in retrospect.
