Tricks and tips for Learning, Memorizing and Retaining states nicknames

A printable list of the states of the USA's  nicknames, in alphabetical order, can be found on this page: print states nicknames.

If you would like to study and learn states nicknames by heart there are various memory techniques to help you. Usually students use constant repetition but learning a list of fifty states and their nicknames is an awesome undertaking. This is a strain on most folks' memory unless you use a system.

  • Use the list below to associate each state with a number from one to ten.
  • An object that rhymes "one -- gun" is connected with the number.
  • Picture the state in your mind and link the object with it, building a mind picture in the most memorable way you can involving the nickname.
  • Use humor, imagination etc. to enhance the memory.

To break the task into manageable chunks, mentally color each object the same for each group of ten. Remember, the more vivid the image you create the easier it is to recall later.

Examples:

1 gun, Alabama -- a man with a black stetson is firing a black gun "bam bam bam" at a wanted poster of himself bearing the legend " Al Montgomery last seen in Alabama" and he has a yellowhammer on his head.

When you reach the second blue group you might imagine something like:

1 gun, Hawaii -- A man with a blue stetson laughing "haw haw haw what a Lulu" is firing his blue gun in the air while looking at a poster of a dancing, grass-skirted lady with the legend "Visit Honululu, Hawaii". She has a speech bubble "Aloha".
