Arashi's Nicknames

collected source from all over Johnny’s.news110 which, unfortunately, hasn't been updated since 2006
EDIT: Added with recent compilation of nicknames right below, source: manimani

大野智 Ohno Satoshi

櫻井以外のメンバーからは基本的に「リーダー」と呼ばれている(櫻井は「大野くん」や「智くん」)二宮は携帯サイトの日記内にて「パン屋さん」と呼んでいる。ファンからは、原知宏命名の愛称「大ちゃん」や、前記の「リーダー」と呼ばれていることが多い。最近は、二宮和也のラジオbaystormで「サミー」とも呼ばれている。「サミー」は偉い人と食事に行った時につけられた。(二宮談) 二宮和也からよく「おじさん」とも呼ばれている。しかし、二宮は相葉雅紀のことも「おじさん」と呼ぶため、区別するのが難しい。「大ちゃん」は幼稚園時代のアダナだったが「大村君」にその座を奪われてから「大野」だった。最近は「リーダー」から「キャプテン」に呼ばれ方が変わった。嵐五人で飲んだ時から(アメリカへ 行く二宮の軽い送別会だった)、他のグループにもリーダーはいるがキャプテンはいないだろうという理由で、メンバーがそう呼ぶようになった。ただし、嵐の中での一時的なブームかもしれないので、いつまた呼び名が変わるかは分からない。(現に、「サミー」は最近ではあまり呼ばれていないようだ)
Other than Sakurai, other members call him “Ri-da- (leader)”, (Sakurai calls him “Ohno-kun” or “Satoshi-kun”). Nino, in his cell phone site diary, calls Ohno “Pan-ya-san (Mr. Bread House)”. Among fans, other than the petname “Oh-chan” which Tomohiro Hara gave, “Ri-da-” is also rather popular. Recently (okay not so recent, this article is rather old already), in Ninomiya Kazunari’s radio show Baystorm, he called Ohno “Sami-”. “When Sami- goes for a meal with ‘big-shots’ he will foot the bill” – says Ninomiya. Pretty often you will also hear “Ojisan (old uncle)” coming from Ninomiya Kazunari. However, Ninomiya also uses this nickname for Aiba Masaki, so it’s hard to differentiate. Although “Ohchan” was actually his nickname during kindergarten days, but now it has been replaced with “Ohno” since losing to “Ohmura-kun” (someone else by the name Ohmura is now having the nickname ‘Ohchan’). Recently, people started switching from “Ri-da-” to “Captain”. When Arashi had a gathering drink (a farewell for Nino who’s leaving for America), with an excuse saying that other groups also call their leaders “Ri-da-”, Arashi members decided that they can’t be the same. It’s just that, does Arashi have some kind of periodic boom or something? They always change the nicknames for each other and we don’t know when they’ll change it again. (Now, “Sami-” isn’t heard at all)
