Squid, swabbie, anchor clanker. All I can think of off the top of my head. Good luck to you

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Squid, swab jockey, swabby, tar, salt. "Gentlemen of the aviation community" are called AIRDALES. Sub sailors are lovingly referred to as BUBBLE HEADS. Non-aviation, surface sailors are referred to as BLACK SHOES. Ask your sailor if he knows the difference between a BROWN SHOE sailor and a BLACK SHOE sailor. You do, now.
Old shipmate of mine, a bubble head, once told me there are only two types of ships: submarines and targets.
My 'road name' is OLD SALT.
We DO look good in those 'cracker jack uniforms'. Makes our butts look good, eh?

Seamen is another that is used. Swab-jockys is another.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You may call us sailors and that is about it. Unless you are sailor yourself, or maybe a Marine, you should refrain from using names like "squid".

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Shock and Awe
Just call him by his first name and you'll be fine. Leave the nicknames alone or you'll look corny. I mean when are planning to call him these names? In a crowd, at dinner, in the bedroom?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Squids. At least that is what the other nickname was when I was in the Navy.
It would help if we knew what rate he is.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Civilians may call us sailors. Squid is more of a Navy/Marine term. Army/Marine Corp/Air Force have some other nicknames for us that Yahoo Answers wouldn't like me posting.
