User Names

    Recommended Posts

    Guest caoimhe

    Ok, I am bored and fed up with no house sale so time for a bit of light entertainment

    Just wondering (as I am a nosy git) how people have choosen their user names.

     

    My O/H signed us up for PIA and he always uses the name Caoimhe (for you poms it is pronounced Keva) it is his daughters name and is Irish for 'gentleness' - he has always used it as a 'user name' because it is more unusual than his own name 'Stephen' so therefore less lightly to have been previously taken

     

    So lets all tell the secret of how we have picked our user names:GEEK:

    Unfortunately mine's not very original seeing as my name's Kim and I was obviously have a mental blockage the day I registered!!! Was just the usual nickname at school (although I did have others that I couldn't possibly use:shocked:)

    Hi there,

     

    mine is soooo boring and I was actually putting in the start of my email address which I had previously my name is Cornelia Macvicar - user name cormcvcr - tried to change it but it wouldn't let me!!!

     

    Wanted to have something funny but it was too late, I had pressed ok before I read it properly and realised what I was calling myself!

    Well you can't get much more boring or obvious than ours can you? There are some great names on here though, one of my favourites is Tiddlypush! I really want to know where that came from!

    Guest Roo1

    Well, I guess mine is pretty obvious as my business is RooRentals. I tried Roo but it got rejected, as someone already had it :wubclub:......not seen any of their post though.

     

    I was GirlyPants on the yellow site (the nickname given to me by an old friend, I think they got it from a cartoon) but changed it when they updated the site as it wasn't quite the tone I wanted to set for my new business. :biglaugh:

    Well I have always been CatWithClaws on the yellow screen, and started off with the same on here until I got accused of 'hiding behind a pseudonym' by someone (think she's gone now - hurrah!) so when I re-registered I went with the simple.

     

    Not that I ever hid my true name as even when using CWC I signed each post with 'Diane'!

     

    I used to use CatCalling on the AOL forums in the UK as whenever I was online my cat used to come and sit on my lap and 'help' me. The someone pointed out that a cat 'calls' when it's on heat (which presumably explained some of the odd attention I was getting).....!! As I'd grown my nails pretty long at the time (and had a very slow connection so used to spend lots of PC-time filing and varnishing them) Cat With Claws seemed a natural progression! You could also say I'm pretty placid most of the time, till someone upsets me or has a go at a friend, then the claws come out....

    I live in Salisbury Heights so thats where the Salisbury came from and I was feeling a bit "gansta" so I added the massive. Its not because i am massive !!!:err:

    Guest ReadyPenny

    Hi

     

    The reason I chose Ready Penny is because that is what my mum calls me. This is because I do everything quickly, including talk, even when I am not in a rush. I always want everything YESTERDAY and cannot wait for anything - ever! What a nightmare am I gonna have waiting for the blessed visa??????
