Throughout the presidential primary season, he has become known for bestowing catchy nicknames upon his friends and foes. Actually, mostly foes.

From “Little Marco” to “Crooked Hillary” and everyone in between, here’s a look at Trump’s top pet names:

‘Crazy Bernie’

Origin: Campaign rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Jan. 13, 2016.

Famous use case: “What do you do? Concede the election to Hillary Clinton or to Crazy Bernie? Right? I mean Bernie. I don’t know who I want to run against more, I don’t know," Trump said back then.

Trump rehashed the nickname for the Vermont senator this morning, tweeting, “I don't want to hit Crazy Bernie Sanders too hard yet because I love watching what he is doing to Crooked Hillary.” “Crazy Bernie” then began trending on Twitter.

‘Crooked Hillary’

Origin: Campaign rally in Watertown, New York, on April 16, 2016.

Famous use case: “So, I’m self-funding. All of this is mine. When I fly in, it’s on my dime, right, it’s on mine. And what does that mean? That means I’m not controlled by the special interests, by the lobbyists. They control crooked Hillary and they control lyin' Ted Cruz, right?” Trump said in New York in April.

Trump also likes to use this attack on Twitter and has been using the nickname for Clinton even more on the campaign trail now that he is the presumptive Republican nominee.

‘Little Marco’

Origin: Campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio, on March 1, 2016.

Famous use case: “I call him little Marco. Little Marco. Hello, Marco,” Trump said in response to the Florida senator's joke about Trump’s “small hands.”

After the 11th GOP debate, social media had a field day when they were introduced to Trump’s belittling taunt for Rubio.

“Don’t worry about it, little Marco,” Trump said when challenged by the Florida senator to answer a policy question on March 3.

Rubio hit Trump back, calling him “Big Donald.”

‘Lyin’ Ted’

Origin: Campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio, on March 1, 2016.

Famous use case: “I call him lying Ted,” Trump said about the Texas senator on Super Tuesday.

Trump debuted Cruz’s new nickname on a national stage, shortly after revealing Rubio’s, at the Republican debate on March 3, 2016.

“Excuse me, I have given my answer, lyin' Ted,” Trump called Cruz after the Texas senator taunted him about releasing tapes of an off-the-record conversation with the New York Times about immigration.

‘Low Energy’ Jeb

Origin: August 2015.

Famous use case: “Let’s say, this is impossible to imagine, low-energy Jeb Bush becomes president,” Trump said of his fellow GOP candidate back in January at a rally in Burlington, Vermont.

“Hello, I’m Jeb,” Trump said imitating Bush. “He’s afraid to use his last name. Can you believe it? I’m Jeb with an exclamation point. I said to him, 'Use your last name. I think you’ll do better.'”

It was more of a label than a nickname, but regardless, it was effective in branding Bush.

‘1 for 38 Kasich’

Origin: Twitter, on April 25, 2016.

Famous use case:

"1 for 38 Kasich" never quite took off as well as Trump’s other nicknames for his opponents. The “1 for 38” referred to Kasich’s only win in the Ohio Republican primary out of all the contests up to that point. Trump later called the Ohio governor “1 for 41 Kasich” and “1 for 44 Kasich” as more states held their primaries.

'Goofy Elizabeth Warren'

Origin: May 6, 2016.

Famous use case: “I hope corrupt Hillary Clinton chooses Goofy Elizabeth Warren as her running mate. I will defeat them both,” Trump wrote on Twitter on May 6.

The real estate mogul’s tweet came just days after the Massachusetts senator went on a Twitter spree, calling Trump a narcissist and a racist.

Later that day, Warren responded to Trump’s “lame” nickname with a series of tweets and noted she “called out” the presumptive Republican nominee on May 3.
