When it comes to funny nicknames, the mafia has it covered. These are the best mafia nicknames (which basically means the funniest mafia nicknames) around! As far as mafia names and mob names, sometimes Joey or even just Salvatore simply won't do. Mob bosses aren't messing around with nicknames, as evidenced by the creativity and imagination popping off the list of nicknames given to the most colorful characters in all of organized crime.

What would your mafia nickname be? Big Tuna? Butterass? Mayhaps your unwavering love of garlic mashed potatoes would earn you the nickname, "Willie Potatoes?" One can dream, right? Obviously, the mob is a dangerous thing, because crime and murders and drugs and stuff. But that doesn't mean that they don't have a great sense of humor. Sometimes that sense of humor manifests itself in an incredibly violent fashion, like cutting somebody up into little pieces, placing those pieces in a gym bag, and throwing them in to the Hudson River - but sometimes they just give each other really funny nicknames. On the very small off chance there's anything to love about the mafia, it's probably that. And also for keeping New York City, and really the entire tri-state area, operating.

So god bless the mafia and the mob (Italian or Russian or just any of them!), for this one very specific thing (funny mobster names) and please help us rank the most creative and funny mafia nicknames ever given to a boss, muscle, consigliere, lackey, or whatever other roles they may have. If you can't get enough of hilarious and awesome names, vote on these badass Viking names, too!
