- Brown has had the nickname "Moonbeam", coined by Linda Ronstadt, since the 1970s, predating Trump's use of the nickname. See McKinley, Jesse (March 6, 2010). "How Jerry Brown Became 'Governor Moonbeam'". The New York Times.
- Boot-Edge-Edge is a mnemonic aid that Pete Buttigieg used to help with the pronunciation of his last name. See Gabriel, Trip (March 28, 2019). "Pete Buttigieg (It's 'Boot-Edge-Edge') Is Making Waves in the 2020 Race". The New York Times.
- The name was in reference to Kasich winning only one state during the Republican primaries.
- Abraham Lincoln has had the nickname "Honest Abe" long before Trump used it. See Marquand, Robert (February 10, 1987). "The Illinois town where 'Honest Abe' earned his nickname". Christian Science Monitor.
