This site ought to provide some interesting reading:

http://www.bitsofblueandgray.com/nicknames.regts.htm

From that chart, I'm partial to the 3rd Colorado Cavalry "Bloodless Third," because who ever saw a dead cavalryman anyway?

And, of course, the 8th Michigan, the "Wandering Regiment." Hmm.

And the 104th Ohio — "The Barking Dog Regiment." Double Hmm.

The 5th New Hamphire was also the "Bloodless Fifth," but they were also the Shoemakers Regiment. Draw your own conclusions.
