I have found a total of 20 different aliases that were used at sometime in Robin's future. Some of them are from Elseworld stories, sometimes they were never used but mentioned. I wonder if there are any more, I will list what I have, and please tell me if there is any others, and give me a reference. My Robin Names Batboy, mentioned as a possible name in the movie Batman Forever

Batman, has taken on the name twice

Bucky, during a Batman/Captain America crossover where they had Robin & Bucky switch rolls.

Deathwing, Team Titans

Doctor Fate, during Flashpint

Heatwave 2.0, Gotham Underground #4

Hood, All-Star Batman & Robin #8

Hush Beyond, Batman Beyond

the Joker, The Dark Knight Strikes Again

Moonwing, Bruce Wayne Agent of SHIELD, A combination of Nightwing & Moon Knight

Nightwing, his current

Owlman, Batman #107, I just founf out about this one

Red Robin, Kingdom Come

Red X, Teen Titans X

Redblade, Batman: Leatherwing

Renegade, during Infinite Crisis

Robin, his original

Superman Jr., Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane #6, done as a prank on Superman

the Target, Nightwing: The Target.

Nightwing is my number one favorite superhero, and that's the main reason why I am interested in ALL of his aliases. So please, if you know of more, let me know.

Impressive work! It must've taken alot of patience to gather every one of those aliases, great detective skills.

My favorite(and the one I wish everyone referred to him as)-The Aerial Avenger. I forget where I heard it originally, it might've been TNBA but it has a certain ring to it. Very easy on the ears. Sure beats "The Caped Crusader" lol

Thanks, I'm actually not looking for nicknames, just different aliases he has used. Also, I thought I once read that they had at one point thought about making Dick Grayson the next Blue Beetle, before Jaime Reyes came along, but I can't find anything to support this. If I was going for nicknames, I might have suggested the Boy Wonder. Thanks anyways.

@PrinceMarvel: I don't believe it was Dick Grayson but in fact Tim Drake who writers were opting for. cbishop of comicvine can fill you in on the details, he's a huge blue beetle fan from what I've read of his blogs. Hope I could help

I realize that this topic is a little over a year old; however, I just learned that before they created Dick Grayson as Robin, they were going to name him Mercury, so I am adding it to my list.
