Over the past decade or two, it’s a fair claim to say that we’ve all been living through a golden age of sitcom television. With so many shows maintaining such high quality for so many seasons, it’s been a great time for those with a penchant for great sitcoms – and one such sitcom, of course, is How I Met Your Mother.
Running from 2005 until 2014 – amassing 208 episodes against nine seasons along the way – How I Met Your Mother continued to impress from start to finish. Well, bar a slightly ropey, drawn-out final season, but that can be forgiven due to the sheer brilliance of the eight seasons that preceded that final year.
Like similarly successful shows, key to How I Met Your Mother was assembling a core cast of characters who appealed to audiences. And likewise similarly to its cohorts, How I Met Your Mother featured numerous nicknames, monikers and mantles for its key faces.
How well do you remember the various nicknames served up throughout How I Met Your Mother’s run, though? Here, the task at hand is to correctly identify which HIMYM nickname belonged to which character – and it’s a task that only the biggest of How I Met Your Mother fans will succeed in!
