I'll start....

I used my real name. I am completely unimaginative ;) Though I do use womanwarrior as my IM screen name usually. That's from a Maxine Hong Kingston book.

:laugh: Womanwarrior, eh? Well if you fancy it, I'm sure the admin's could help you out.... :wink:

My userid...well it's a nickname....given to me by the dearest of friends....people call me "Becca" and in turn, I have a massive love of all things "berry" (strawberry, blackberry, rasberry...et al)....I usually even smell of them...hence the nickname....it stuck. When I came here, I thought it was time for a bit of a change, since so many other things had changed in my life....and I quite fancy it!

Erm, well my name is Sarah and I used to get called Saz at school then that kind of progressed into sazzle by my best friend, when I joined e-bay many years ago it gave me Sazzle Dazzle as a suggestion for a user name and I kind of quite liked it so it sort of stuck.

I sat and thought for days about mine, then I realised, if I squinted and tilted right then my actual name looked like josh.p. and it stuck.

:gy:

I wish mine was as imaginitive as that- its just my name and initial.

I also really wish I had been more imaginative when I first started using forums :lol:

mine, on tortoise ones is 'tortoise_dude' (like in finding nemo... little duuuuuudde) only my torts aren't turtles so I changed it to tortoise duuude instead.

On habbo its Josh.

since josh was taken!

For the first time ever I could actually have my name before someone else got there before me.

It is the name given to my by my DGD when she was three.

Tink
08-08-2008, 12:02 PM
I like Tinkerbell, so just shortened it to Tink. Mostly every who already knew me, knew me by that name, so I kept if for here. :yes:

There are many of us Tinkerbell lovers! We should form a Tinkerbell group! :lol:

By the way, if anyone wants to change their username, all they have to do is drop me a PM with the name they want to have and I can change it for you. It can be done! :D

The original forum name that I used for years was Breeze because we had just bought a car and it was a Plymouth Breeze and I really liked it.

When I came here I decided new site, fresh start and all that jazz so I decided to use my real name, although if you want to use Breeze still that's okay too :D

Funny you should say that Dorothy. I`ve lost count of the number of times that I was replying to one of your comments and automatically typed Breeze before deleting it and replacing it with your name.
Old habits die hard eh? :p015:

even when i see 'dorothy' i always think 'breeze' :lol:

Taja
08-08-2008, 01:53 PM
Dorothy, you'll always be Breeze to me! :lol: Even if you do share a name with one of my favourite people--my mother! :)

Taja has been my nickname since shortly after I was born.

Leu is one of the few people who call me by my birth name. We met at school in second grade in the days when teachers did not accommodate nicknames that weren't specifically related to birth names (i.e., shortening Katherine to Kate or Kathy).

Slowhand, I have SO missed your humor! :yes: Thank heaven you are here to share it with us, once again! :yes:

I like the name Taja. I imagine it's pronounced Tahzuh, yes? :unsure:

Very close, Tink! It's a soft "J" surrounded by short "A"s. Think "Taj" Mahal with an extra "A" on the end! :lol: Not related at all, but the easiest comparison I've found! :)

I actually lost it up until a couple of weeks ago Tink.

:hug1: Well, I am VERY grateful you've scoured the earth until you found it! :yes: :D

That's because you needed me to kick it back up into high gear :hug2:

Beccaberry

Perhaps it was lost in the tart parlour, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? :wink:

Go on then, Slowhand, fess up....for those who haven't heard whereabouts that very LOVELY username you have there comes from...don't be shy....remember...I have photos :wink:

Many moons ago I was on a college football chat forum. Most of the members were from SEC Schools (Auburn, Florida, Georgia, etc.) or ACC Schools. I wanted to make sure they knew I went to the University of Southern California (THE USC) not The University of South Carolina (usc). Hence was born USCWEST. :p015:

Debbie2
08-08-2008, 06:18 PM
It is my user name somewhere else where there were too many Debbie's that I had to be Debbie2. I was going to drop the '2' on here but thought it easier to keep it as most of you know me as Debbie2

If you have not all worked mine out its because i love Maine coon cats. I love their loyalty and attitude. Sometimes though they can be very naughty and then i think of changing my user name.

Mine is a nickname of my real name plus the abbreviation for Queensland where I live!

Many years ago I was on a genealogy forum where you had to put your state as part of your user name - weird really because my ancestors aren't from Queensland anyway. But it has stuck now. It's unique enough that I don't have trouble using it wherever I go.
