What does the nickname “ACE” mean?

4 Answers

  • Ace is a boy’s name. It is of English origin, and its meaning is “number one”; “the best”; “highest rank.”

    Ace is more common as a nickname meaning one who excels. Connotations of superiority come from the fact that the ace is the playing-card bearing one pip generally meaning the highest value in many card games. The term “flying ace” goes back to World War I when planes were both novel and hazardous and those who successfully fought in those planes were called “flying aces.” The term “ace” is also common for the baseball pitcher who is the most capable on a team.
