Just curious about peoples' sign in names and what the letters and/or numbers mean. Buzz is actually my husband's nickname and we only use his legal name when necessary. The 99 was added when we used Buzz for a sign-in on another website and Buzz was already taken. Karen

ahhhh some guy trying to get my attention in another time another life, called me that, he said, and if you can believe someone who has been drinking, that it meant northern beauty. Anywho, I've used it for screen name as everything with Linda has or had been taken. The best name however is what my grandaughter calls me "grammie ahe".

Linda

I chose this name because we live in Olympia, and b-e-e are the first letters of our last name. It just kind of flowed from there.
I LOVED reading everyone's reasons, though. Thanks for bumping it up so we could learn a little more about everyone

From what I can see Googling "OSMOTAR", it mean's you are either;

"The wisdom-maiden, Kalew's fair and lovely virgin..."

or

"a mythological patron of beer and beer-brewing"

Both of which may have something to do with your friend that first christened you as Osmotar..LOL.

Cheers,
John

My username is from our second home Disney Boardwalk Villa, one of my favorite places on earth. We are kind of Disney freaks and usually go once a year or so. We are planning on being there inDecember for our 30th anniversary. That is one of my inspiratations for getting thru these treatments. And I am a girl.

I wish I lived that close. I live in Indiana so that is why we only make it usually once a year. We did do Disney's Hilton Head Resort at spring break before my nightmare started so I got a little bit of my Disney fix there. Really hoping I can make it down in December even if I only sit on my balcony and watch people go by and at least see the Osborne Family of Lights, awesome.

Brian Krashpad is my stage name. I'm in a punk rock and roll band called Crash Pad, and many years ago a DJ friend of mine started calling me "Brian Krashpad" simply as a shortening of "Brian from/of Crash Pad." Plus, it's been a punk rock thing to use the name of one's band as one's "last name" for decades, back to the Ramones.

I spell the last name with a K since my "real" initials are BK anyhow. That way I can "sign" things "BK" and either way it's appropriate.

;)

Be well!

This thread. When I signed up, I didn't worry about my screen name because I figured I would never post. Now I have the opportunity to explain the unusual name, NoDuck.

It's the name of Hubby's favorite hunting dog, a Fell terrier. When she and her brother were young pups, she would chase him around the yard while Dale and I sat in lawn chairs. Her brother would duck under the chairs, she wouldn't and would bang her head. But she would get back up and chase him again. So he was named Duck, she was named NoDuck.

Name seems appropriate to our current situation -- get knocked down, get back up.

Not sure what a Fell terrier is, but I like the name and the idea behind it!

Be well!
