Best Reason to Be Cautious When Giving Your Kid a Nickname

Tumpy Campbell

Staff Pick

Carroll Campbell III has one major thing going for him in the race to replace Henry Brown in the U.S. House of Representatives: His father, Gov. Carroll Campbell, was one of the Palmetto State’s best. But he has three things going against him: One, he was a member of a whites-only country club. Two, he is a lobbyist. Three, his nickname is Tumpy. Really? At least it’s better than Stumpy? Or Grumpy? Or, eek, Dumpy?
