In ND in the early 70's, my boyfriend was known as big John or
BJ. I became known as LBJ (Little Big John). Being known
as Little Rock has the same humorous ring as being known as LBJ
(or tiresome if you're the recipient).

--which reminds me of some friends in their late sixties in north Texas who
both share the name _Jack_: this happily married couple is known as
"He-Jack" and "She-Jack."
