Dunfermline Athletic have an interesting nickname...The Parrs

At first it was because they were so bad their fans called the "Paralytic". This was shortened to the Pars. Later, the Rosyth Naval base opened and workers from Plymouth came up to work there. They were called The Plymouth Argyle Rosyth Supporters. Later still the club were called The Pars because they achieved League status on a "par" with other clubs. Finally, the name Parrs was used because their black and white shirts resembled fish. I thank you.
