Why is that his (J. Johanssons') nickname? Seems like he could go by JJ or something.

It's a European thing. All my friends in Europe call him that. :lol:

It started when he was a kid and could not pronounce his older brother's name, so he called him "Pim" or something like that. I understand Pim-Pim is also the name of a popular candy in Sweden.

Well, he plays much better than a child-like name, and it's cool that he doesn't really care bout how he has a childish name I guess. He's awesome though.

Almost, but not quite. It was Joachims brother that couldn't pronounce
"Joachim" and instead said "Joa-pim", which later turned into Pim-Pim
(probably due to that candy you mentioned).
