This nickname is given to the man because he is wearing large spectacles that make his eyes appear owl-like. The character of Owl Eyes is known for his fascination with Gatsby's library and his surprise at discovering that the books are real rather than just for show. This nickname helps to create a memorable and distinctive image of the character in the reader's mind.
