I was thinking that a list of these may be useful for some people, as you can see there are a lot I don't know so please feel free to add ones, then I'll edit my list to make it into a quick reference for anyone who wants to view it.

I'm also not sure about one or two of them, L'Acchiappasogni (The Dreamcatcher) seems a bit like Alice in Wonderland stuff.

Eto'o - Pantera (Scarpini)
Quaresma - Er Trivela
Muntari - The Bull (Recalcati)
Chivu - il Principe (Scarpini)...though now we have 2 Il Principe, though one is a pronounciation in Italian & the other in Argentinian (Milito)
Mancini - Diamantino Mancini (Recalcati & Scarpini)
Balotelli - Straordimario (Recalcati)

Zanetti, Cambia
Straordimario is like straordinario, extraordinary :D

I think Scarpini calls Muntari Bagheera by the way :)

And La pantera Nera is Suazo I think, Eto'o should be Il Lione :p

Yep yep I forgot Suazo. La pantera nera is Suazo. Eto'o is Il re Leone = The lion king..my mistake

Thanks for the help everyone. Handoyo, I'm not putting up El Fail for Ricardo Quaresma because although accurate I think it is of your creation ;). Suneet, Javier Zanetti was called Pupi before he left Argentina and made it big and well before his charity was created so I'm not sure it has any connection, although the charity is indeed called Fundacion Pupi.

Pupi is his childhood name. Why was he named that, I have no idea. But all I know is that the word does not hold any significant meaning.

Exactly why are Chivu and Milito (and apparently Krhin too) called Principe?

Is it because Chivu is a prettyboy?
