For all we know it could have a bird problem and we have to call it the bird toilet.

Haha, have to agree with this.

A nickname is not something you can force or vote for. They have to come about naturally. If it ends up getting a nickname cool, if not then I'm fine with Levi field.

Forced nicknames are just lame.
I propose THE LEVIATHAN.



It's a natural extension of the stadium's actual name. And that leviathan can mean 'giant', there's nice symmetry to go along with the San Francisco Giants.



For those not readily versed, here's the Wikipedia intro on "Leviathan":


Leviathan (/lɨˈvaɪ.əθən/; Hebrew: לִוְיָתָן, Modern Livyatan Tiberian Liwyāṯān ; "twisted, coiled") is a sea monster referenced in the Tanakh, or the Old Testament.

The word has become synonymous with any large sea monster or creature. In literature (e.g., Herman Melville's Moby-Dick) it refers to great whales, and in Modern Hebrew, it means simply "whale." It is described extensively in Job 41 and mentioned in Isaiah 27:1.


Fairly badass. Also, being on the coast, naming it for a sea monster makes sense.

Check out the link in the quote for an illustration, or do a Google image search for some other wicked examples.

I'm generally of the idea of a nickname being earned or happening in its own time.

But if we insist upon naming it here ourselves, vote:

THE LEVIATHAN.
