After the strategical acquisition of Brad Nicholson for this most fabulous of news sites, we're left with a referential confusion here, as a community. This concerns everyone, for there can be only one Brad. And this one and true Brad has to be the one that dies a lot. So that means we need a new name for the new Brad. What do You guys suggest? 
My clever suggestions are: "New Brad", "Brad 2" and "Other Brad" (Or simply "The Other"). 
My apologies if someone already made this tread.

The other Brad sounds good

Though he might destroy you through the interwebs with his massive muscles if you call him that.

Less sexy-sounding Brad. 
No, I haven't heard him speak. I don't need to to know he can't compare.

New Brad reminds me of New Brian on family guy, and nobody likes New Brian.
I prefer Brad2

The Lesser Brad.  Or perhaps, given his recent activity, "News Brad."  Although, to do the site justice, I think it can only be a completely intentionally terrible pun of some kind.

Love your suggestions, keep it coming.  
It should also be worth stating that Brad Nicholson shouldn't have any right in influencing his new name. Power to the people!

On the topic of Brad. I hate Brad. For a very petty reason: his voice is identical to the guy that handles service for my car. And that bastard never gets it right and makes me visit the repair shop over and over for the same problem.
No fault of his own. But if I could Hogan Leg Drop him I would. 
Just kidding. Kind of. All that said, his reviews tend to be the best.

Evil Brad.
We could call them GB and EB for short.
I'm also all for calling new Brad Brad, and Old Brad Shoebacca.

Brad Nicholson...

#28 Posted by Captain_Insano (1721 posts) -

I'm going to be unoriginal here and just go with the last name. Nicholson.
No first name references (only confuses matters in this case). Plus Nicholson is an easy off the cuff last name to use.

I have an idea! How about we just call him Brad? I like to make people confused.

Heeeey! I like it! It's unique to him and we won't get him confused with the other Brad *High fives* 
Using Nicholson and Shoemaker, while not terribly personal, seems like the best solution to me. Though of the other, more concise, nicknames Bradolson seems most fitting if you want to go that route.

Change to "New Brad +" and you've got yourself a deal.
#38 Posted by Sweep (9703 posts) -

I think the two Brads should fight for the name "Brad" and the loser should then be called "Brail" (a combination of "brad" and "fail")

Bricholson?  Brich?  Brick? "
I think Brick is probably the best one. It's catchy, and I'm sure if everyone keeps referring to him as Brick, the name will stick.

I prefer not being a child and including their other names when referring to them instead.
