Maybe they should all be nicknamed as "Pigeons", since they will be made for so many different countries and branches of our military. If all works out with the program, they will be EVERYWHERE- just like their namesake.

Hell, real pigeons even used to work for the military before- now they can be recognized!

Since it can take many forms, how about "Flubber"?

F-35A: Fighting Flubber
F-35B: Bouncy Flubber
F-35C: Wet Flubber

“Wet Flubber”??

Probably should leave well enough alone, but.....

I’m sure it will get its real nickname eventually someday in service, but along the lines of Merlin (good one, but could be confused with an engine), for getting in and out of impossible places you have the: F-35 “Houdini”.

If you need to tie it to the current buzz phrase, Air Dominance, then: F-35 “Dominatrix

Well, considering the Darth Vaderish looking helmet, its fat body and stubby wings I submit TIE Fighter.

And in respose to the Wet Flubber nickname, why not just call it the Flying Vagina, especially since it's supposed to absorb all sorts of electromagnetic radiation, both with its RAM and its plethora of sensors.

Considering all its moving parts, Transformer may just catch on for the B model.
