Navy slang vs Military slang[edit]

Some of the entries here are not unique to the US Navy. This list should be compared to the list at Appendix:Military slang. If the term is in significant inter-service usage, it should probably be added to Military slang and pulled off this list. Rossami 04:40, 23 September 2007 (UTC)


Fi Fi (pronounced like the French "fee fee"): Fuckin' idiot squared.

Reformat underway[edit]

Section-by-section formatting. However, will not be checking for redundancy with MilSlang. Nahum Reduta 23:20, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Line Locker[edit]

So what is a "line locker" as in, "The guys in the "Line Locker" can..." ? Thanks -

A locker is basicaly any storage space. Be it tiny or huge they are almost always called a locker. In this case, it is where you store Line, AKA Rope. Herogamer 15:12, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

The "Line Locker" is a reference to a group of command-eligible naval officers within NAVSEA08.50.147.26.108 02:51, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Shit Hot[edit]

I've heard this term a lot- hope it gets added to the list. 209.99.19.8 17:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

NONBFN[edit]

Not Only No But Fuck No

Ship nicknames[edit]

Nearly every boat, ship, and occasionally squadron, will have an alternative name, either self named, or "earned." It does not make sense to put them here, should be a different list. -- Waterproof blue

Hm, OK. What would be a good (title for a) page to move them to? Appendix:List of slang names for U.S. Navy units? Or it could be a subpage of this page, such as Appendix:Glossary of U.S. Navy slang/Unit names. - -sche (discuss) 20:27, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Either way would be OK. The Glossary as a subpage would seem to be more convenient. Waterproof blue (talk) 00:51, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
