    Does anyone remember that episode of Friends where Joey wins the boat at the auction and then Rachel tries to get the second highest bidder to buy it cause Joey could not really afford it. Well she said that people could call him Captain and when he is older Cappie, so I thought what if they named him "Captain something"?

    It sounds a bit crazy, but I saw the episode the other day and I thought of Cappie.

    I am also wondering what his last name is, the show has a lot of plain last names;

    Cartwright

    Chambers

    Owens

    Logan

    Bennett

    It would be fun to have a crazy last name.

    I think the show writers will probably never reveal this secret, but on the off chance that they do, it's going to be something embarrassing of course. Cappie could be his middle name shortened... Just a possibility.

    I think "Cappie" comes from Kappa Tau.... You know? Kappa into "Cappie", or maybe because he is the president is might be short for "Captain", but I think his real name has NOTHING to do with Cappie...

    i would have thought that too, but he was called Cappie in the flashback episode, before he went to Kappa Tau.

    I was thinking that maybe since his parents were hippies and his name is supposed to be ironic/funnt/strange it could be something like capitalism or something.

    just a random thought but what if he was named Capulet, I was thinking about it in English while we were reading Romeo and Juliet and the two families the Capulets and the Montagues were always fighting while the hippies were all about peace and love.

    In Freshman Daze, Evan called Cappie's parents deadhead losers, a deadhead is also know as a fan of the band The Grateful Dead, maybe there is something there.

    My 2 cents is that Cappie is Dean Bowman's son.

    He got into the Amphora society for some reason.

    Cappie could be his last name.

    Probably not. At that trial-thing Evan pulled out all these secrets about Dean Bowman being a trouble-maker and druggie. Odds are Cappie would've known and used that information if it was his dad.

    I always thought his name was something stupid, like "Homer Simpson" but now thanks to the suggestions of these lovely people in this thread, I might have to re-think it
