Notable Mafia Nicknames

6 of 10

The Chin

Vincent "The Chin" Gigante headed the Genovese organized crime family, known for faking mental illness for decades to hide his position. His nickname apparently came from his mother's pronunciation of "Cincenzo," a variation of his name in Italian, and his childhood friends shortened that to "Chin." Gigante died in prison in 2005 at age 77.
