View Full Version : How did you pick your username?

This one hasn't been done in a longgg time. Us "old-timers" will remember this from way back. Let's do it again. Tell us...how/why did you come up with your username on Soonet, or other sites....I'll start....

I chose "everywoman" because I feel that I am many things rolled into one person. I am kind, generous, loving, humorous, b-i-tch-y and cranky. I love country music, rock and roll, classical, and hip-hop. I love tattoos, animals and old people. I love to travel but home is where my heart is. I make a wicked pasta sauce, but am not a very good baker. Essentially, I feel, I am every woman. Like the song says....I'm every woman, it's all in me.

How about you?

Mine's easy. I'm a huge corner gas fan, and think the real Oscar Leroy is great.. I know... not too creative

Breaker...

My name came from a friend of mine. He used it as an email address, and I stole the name. Plus, it is a play on my favourite cartoon character, Linus Van Pelt. It's more feminine my way.

Years ago I joined another site that required a username, couldn`t think of one that wasn`t already taken so I went through the ones they reccommended. Xzavia jumped out at me and it`s stuck ever since.

Not suppoesed to be all capitals though, put in a request when the new forum took over months ago to have it changed but hasn`t happened yet.

I chose my name for three reasons. Where I have a cottage, the sky always seems to be blue. Secondly, I dabble in the stock market, and once a share price breaks all resistance points, they call it bluesky. Thirdly, I remember a poem from my schooldays I needed to memorize:

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Used to have that memorized, I find it has mostly slipped away.

My Mom was enthralled with Unicorns. I have always (secretly, don't tell my wife and kids) wanted a tattoo of a winged unicorn which is referred to as anipeg. (note spelling) When I met a lovely young lady known on here we got into a conversation over the name. When I started having the need for a 'screen name' I jumped all over mine like a fat kid on a candy bar. To avoid plagiarising(at least blatant) I altered the spelling.

geogett - long time ago when i first signed up for yahoo email - i was rushing to do it cause it wasnt the proper time to do it and i was trying for georgette - so missed a few letters and ended up with this instead - have been using it ever since - i use it on other sites as well :D

others have interpretated as geo = earth gett = kids - that makes sense as well :)

Hey if you change it next year let us all know so we can keep track of you ok?


I picked mine when I was living in an apartment after a separation. I'd lived in a house all my life so 'no-casa' seemed appropriate. Now I've got a house again, but changing it go 'gotcasa' just seems kind of dumb :)

Tansy
04-12-2009, 10:37 PM
Mine is a nickname from when I was living in Toronto area. My best friend's name is the same as mine, but she's older so her arguement was that she was the 'original'. I was studying herbology at the time and someone came up with Tansy. It's good for your heart and gets rid of pests, but too much will kill you. ;)
It stuck. People still call me Tansy.
