Cincinnati seems to have a lot of Nicknames, both of the promotional variety ("The Queen City", "Porkopolis", "City of Seven Hills") as well as local shorthand ("Cincy", "Cinti", "the 'Nati").

What are the most common promotional and shorthand nicknames that you hear on a regular basis?

Which are your favorites/least favorites?

I hate when people call it the "Nasty Nati". How juvenile can you get?

City nicknames are silly.

Only non-residents call Cincinnati the "nasty nati". "Da Nati" by itself though is an institution.

The Wiz calls it the nasty nati sometimes too, but it's term when used by them is a positive one.

Cincy is the most common and acceptable one, imo.

Columbus is just jealous that just Vine St. between Liberty and C. Pkwy alone is more urban than the entire metro of Cbus.

Unfortunately I that is not what I have found to be true. A lot of younger residents refer to it as "Nasty Nati" which cuts right though me .
