Username origins?

SaraNoHSaraNoH Posts: 827Registered Users
Just curious, how did everyone come up with their usernames? There's always some interesting story/reason behind them. They're like puzzles.

Mine is fairly simple. My first name is Sara, spelled without an "H." There's another Sarah in my class and my mother (an instructor) called me "Sara sin hache" and her "Sara con hache" for a little while. So I just took that, but in English. Also, whenever I have to spell my name over the phone I literally just say, "Sara, no 'H.'"

    I was called goldilocks as a child cause my hair was a golden blond and I had ringlets all over.

    I was goldylocks when I first signed up (under this user name, I couldn't remember my original name), but I shortened it to just goldy years ago.

    My name is Sydney and every time I tell someone my name for the first time, I have to either spell it or correct them when they say, "Cindy?", so I started just saying "Sydney, like Australia."

  • maria_imaria_i Posts: 1,760Registered Users
    Tons of women from my generation, in my country, have the name Maria as their 'first' first name. As in Maria Eugenia, Maria Esther, Maria Teresa, Maria de Lourdes, etc. But they are always called by their 'second' first name: Eugenia, Teresa, etc.
    That is my case.
    The first time I visited the US, I told people the name I was usually called, and the pronunciation was so strange and different I didn't like it. Thus, I decided to choose Maria as my name.

    Since the begining of the Internet I ve been Maria everywhere, and I like it very much.

    Mine is pretty obvious... I was going through a total mad love of all things Narnia at the time. I wanted something that was only one word, and my name is Natasha, so Narnia seemed to fit the bill. I remember thinking it would for sure be taken, but alas, it wasn't. I have tried to use it for other various interweb things and it's ALWAYS taken.

    My name is Becky. My friend's dad gave me the name Speckla because he said I was a speck of girl. I've been Speck or Speckla most of my life. I identify with that name more than I do my real name. My siggy should explain how the name evolved from Becky.

    My name is April and growing up a friends dad always called me Spring. At one point I was living with my sister and in the age of AOL (dial up! what!!!) she created a screen name for me so I could use the internet and she came up with Spring1onU. Viola.

    I always have to tell people I'm Débora without an H, I sometimes joke I'm incorporating it to my real name.

    Deda is a childhood nickname (or one of its variations) and the Chan I added whimsically because I had been watching a Japanese cartoon or two at the time.

    when i joined in 1999 this was the first board i was on ever. i used my real first name. pretty simple but then for a bit of anonymity i changed it to luvmylocs. at the time i had locs and i loved them. i cut the locs, kept the screen name. now i have locs again (and probably always will) but i love my screen name so wouldn't ever change it.

  • CurlyminxCurlyminx Posts: 5,581Registered Users
    I started as curlymix. I chose it because my curls are 3A and 3B so I'm a curlymix. Then I mentioned being called trollop by an ex once and we made a thread about words like trollop. Saria (I think) mentioned that she then saw curlyminx when I posted instead of curlymix. I thought it was funny so I changed it.

    I'm surprised that no one had been that name yet.

    Interesting stories guys, keep em coming. It's cool to see all of the creativity around here.

    Just to toss out, I once had the username "saran_wrap" because like I said my first name is Sara, last name initial is "N." It was for class so I just wanted my username to be my real name, but thought saran_wrap sounded funnier.

    I have excellent recall of most things and I'm often very quiet. The result is that I often remember subtle details that people don't remember me even being present for. A boyfriend once told me I was like a cosmic fly on the wall. I was looking for a screen name at the time....
