Is dipper his name or nickname?

  • I`ve been confused about this for some time now because wendy said "That`s how you got your nickname." but then she said "I thought your parents hated you or something."

    • It's his nickname. She thought his parents hated him for naming him Dipper, but she found out it's just a nickname

    • Don't think his real name's been said yet.

    • I vaguely remember someone mentioning his name at some point, but I can't remember when or what it was. I'll let you guys know if I find it

    • I actually have a theory about Dipper's real name. It goes back to the 2nd episode, The Legend of the Gobblewonker. The license plate on Stan's car reads "STNLYMBL", and at first you'd think it stands for Stanleymobile, because at first Stan seems like the kind of guy who would do that. However, two things lead me to believe that this is not the case. 1, we find out that Stan is short for Stanford, and 2, the theme of that whole episode (as well as most of Stan's development throughout Season 1) is that he cares about the kids a lot more than he lets on. Because of this, I think the license plate stands for StanlyMabel, thus Dipper's real name being Stanley.

    • Is his name because it is revealed in Double Dipper that he was named before his birth mark, which is the Big Dippper.

      That actually seems quite like a good theory! I wonder whether that will be revealed sometime in Season 2?

    • Some people think his real name is Roderick, due to Irrational Treasure

      Can you cite the evidence towards that name please?

    • Machocron - It was in the episode. It's not his real name though.

    • Quentin Trembley calls him Roderick

    • Cool!

    • I think they will mention it in season 2...THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW...TILL THEN....

    • I hope so! ^_^

    • Ya I also think its Rodrick

    • For a while I really thought Dipper's name was Roderick because Quentin Trembley called him that, then I remembered....oh wait, Quention Trembley was crazy! Still a possibility, thought. Way more likely than Stanley. I can see Dipper as a Roderick but not as a Stanley. Plus, Stanford probably had that "STNLYMBL" license plate long before Dipper came to the Shack, and before that he'd never even met Dipper, and only knew he existed.

      So he couldn't have named his liscence plate after a great neice and great nefew that he hadn't met, but still cared about?

      Also, Dipper tries to refute Quentin's calling him Roderick. So that's probably not his real name

      No. Stanley is the name of Stans Brother, revealed in the latest episode. Like, Stanleymobile, kinda like he handed it to Stan. I think maybe Roderick or Tyrone.....

    • Tyrone is the name Dipper always wanted not his real name.

    • Maybe their parents like to give them twin names that sound similar or start with the same letter. Maybe Michael? or Gable? Whatever it is, I kind of hope we never find out. It would be cool if the series ends with that one mystery left unsolved. ;)
