Type of Noun
Just as a verb is considered a gerund when using "ing," what is the specific type of noun when used as an epithet, e.g. he is a "bastard?"
A friend and I were discussing various grammatical terms and this one stumped us.
Re: Type of Noun
noun: descriptive word or phrase

You can call it a predicative nominative.
