Sporty Spice: Mel C
Fun fact: Mel C, Mel B, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham all auditioned (separately) for the group in 1993 after seeing a casting call for a girl group in a magazine called The Stage. While they did not audition as a group, they did all know each other, since they were always going to the same auditions.
Baby Spice: Emma Bunton
Fun facts: Bunton was not an original member of the group; she replaced the original fifth member Michelle Stephenson, who left the group due to an illness in her family and because she wanted to go to college. Also, when Bunton joined the group, they were named Touch.
Scary Spice: Mel B
Fun fact: The girls did not come up with their own iconic nicknames. According to Mel C, the names came from the editor of Top of the Pops magazine, who decided to give them nicknames in a feature the magazine was running on the group. After the issue came out, the names stuck.
