Freebase

  1. Bubba

    In American usage, bubba is a relationship nickname formed from brother and given to boys, especially eldest male siblings, to indicate their role in a family. For some boys and men, bubba is used so pervasively that it replaces the given name. The nickname may also be used outside the family by friends as a term of endearment. Because of its association with the southern part of the United States, bubba is also often used outside the South as a pejorative to mean a person of low economic status and limited education. Bubba may also be taken to mean one who is a "good ol' boy." In the US Army and Marines, bubba can mean a lay soldier, similar to grunt but with connotations of endearment instead of derision. At times it may be used as a term of endearment for a person, especially a man, who is either overweight or seemingly powerful large body frame. In American prison culture, Big Bubba can refer to a cliche of a man that is simple minded but of imposing stature and with incredible strength, there for a lengthy sentence for an especially heinous crime that is by coincidence, is a newcomer's cellmate, often in the context that if one submits to or refuses any sexual advances, it can make the difference between an easy or extremely difficult prison sentence.
