Big New York Mafia Bust Nickname List has three Anthonys and an Anthino.

When I saw the link to the list, I had to see if it had any Tonys on it. Italians are often called Tony, and they always seem to be saying "Hey Tony!" in movies. (It should be noted that Tony's nickname was inspired by the great goalie of Italian heritage Tony Esposito.)

Four Tonys made the top twenty Mafia Bust nickname list:

  • ANTHONY CAVEZZA, also known as "Tony Bagels"
  • ANTHINO RUSSO, also known as "Hootie"
  • ANTHONY DURSO, also known as "Baby Fat Larry" and "BFL"
  • ANTHONY LICATA, also known as "Cheeks," "Anthony Firehawk," "Anthony Nighthawk," "Nighthawk" and "Firehawk"

Let's try these nicknames on Anthony Arnis Peng Kaulins:

  • Tony "Bagels" Kaulins
  • Tony "Hootie" Kaulins
  • Baby Fat Larry Kaulins. BFL Kaulins. (There is something to be said for that nickname. If you look at recent photos of AAPK, he has a little chubbiness.)
  • Tony "Cheeks" Kaulins
  • Anthony "Firehawk" Kaulins
  • Anthony "Nighthawk" Kaulins
