Why was Billie Holiday's nickname Lady day?
Well, her friend Lester Young, Billie, and her mother gave each other nicknames. Billie was considered a lady because she would not accept tips unless you handed her. Lester Young must have gotten "Day" out of Holiday, and thus came up with Lady Day as a nickname.
