I need a word (noun) for a person who has flunked out of school. It's to be used as a nickname, so it can't be too lengthy. I've googled "flunkee," but to my dismay it seems to have a different meaning - one that seems more commonly used. The dictionary says it's a word that means "a liveried manservant or footman," but when I think of the word "flunkee," I think of somebody who failed out of school. Does anyone else use the word that way, or do I have a distorted interpretation of the word? Do you think readers would understand the connotation in context if I were to write "flunkee"? If not, do any other words exist that mean the same thing? Thanks!
