Paratsoukli (Παρατσούκλι)


Explanation:
"Παρατσούκλι" είναι η λέξη που ψάχνεις. Αν δεν σου φαίνεται αρκετά "ωραία" για να μπει στη μετάφρασή σου, υπάρχουν και οι λεξεις "προσωνύμιο, παράνομα", αλλά καλύτερα να χρησιμοποιήσεις το "παρατσούκλι" γιατί αποδίδει καλύτερα την αργκό στην οποία είναι γραμμένη η αγγλική λέξη.

onoma, paratsoukli


Explanation:
You can use όνομα, or παρατσούκλι, paratsoukli, which is more of a slang expression, like moniker.

Hope it helps. Leo
