I decided to post up an old thread on the subject...check it out.
There are some very funny origins, as well as some interesting perceptions of what the various forum names were derived...
How Did You Chose Your Screen Name
I went by many years ago....I've used it on the internet since I got my first computer. The number 51 is the same as my email, so I can remember it ....not too imaginative, but it's served me well on the internet for many years.
Ours is a bit more obvious, I met a man who grew up on the island where the Monolopy game was born, 3 houses from the beach! So we live on the NJ Shore, even married here on the beach.
PS - I met him over the Internet... So not all Internet is bad!
I think wolves are magnificent animals. Misunderstood and feared by many unless they are respected. I also like the movie "The Wolfen" and have wolf collectibles decorating my house right alongside our huge John Wayne collection.
Well, I made Cancer an offer it couldn’t refuse…
i figured it must be something like that
I thought I would hang out my shingle

Well, if you look at the original thread, there was a lady that has a screen name of Luv2Cut1... You know me, and apparently several others of my Abi-Normal Clan and our humor, love and miss Glenna, Dawn, Patty, Roz and StacyA...even my bub AB got into the act.
We totally had no idea she was talking about cutting horses..., LOL.
When she finally figured out what we were thinking she was to the point of wanting to change her screen name.
Even better was another lady that still din't know what we were all talking about..., LOL.
Well mine is probably pretty obvious to all..Ha,Ha. When I logged on, obviously I was full of emotion. All I could think of was "curing it all " so there would be less heart ache in this world. Then the year I was born...Ha, Ha....For most of you I'm probably a youngster.. (yet I don't always feel like one).
Good thing on the 66, I was thinking you only wanted to cure 66 of us..., and all of this time I've been sucking up to get into the top 10 on your "Cure All" list, LOL...
You are too much....LOL! Hey, it could have been the year I graduated or the year of my current car...ha,ha.
But, I have sent special prayers up to God to get this stuff under control down here. In the meantime, I'm going to keep doing my Relay fundraising to keep sending the money for research. But, if there was a limit, you'd be at my top 66! ..
the proud Grandma of 4~~~
My name and birth year. Pretty clever right?
Ok so maybe not but at the time I couldn't think of anything better, haha
Thought about using my alias, Lord Winston Rothschild III, but that was a little lengthy, or my other alias, Dick Butkus Jr., but opted for my real first and middle names.
Common...., you know your really want me to address you as Lord Kent.....
Well, John, I thought long and hard about what name to use, and then just decided to use the first name that came to mine, so I used it, along with my middle initial.
Noelle passed away just as Jim's treatment was starting. As you can imagine, I was an emotional wreck, anyway, and Noellesmom just felt right.
Vanessa is a form of my original name, and SLO is for my country (Slovenia).
I thought the SLO stood for San Luis Obispo (in California). Man, I was only 8000 miles off. lol
My initinals of my name and birth year, lol
I chose my screen name from Disney's "Fantasia". Yensid is the name of the sorcerer Mickey is apprenticed to. I figured that since I was hoping for magic with my treatments, and truth be told, it does seem to be somewhat like witchcraft, that it would fit well with my journey through the battle with the 'beast'. the digits are significant to my wife - the ever suffering caregiver - and I
I knew that was DISNEY spelled backwards, but I didn't know from where.
now I know. thanks !
Originally from Australia, I met my wife online and settled in the South, Alabama then Florida (hence rebel)and my birth year 1953.
Simple, just like me.
When I got my first email account-I tried a bunch of names-everything was taken. Growing up, my sister always called me sassy so that and my first inital and last name became my username. I also use capecodrice also. But I forget when I use that one.
I posted an explanation on another thread but "fishmanpa" was something I came up with back '95 when I got my first computer and internet (remember dial up?) I've had the same email address since that time and still use the original ISP company for my email account.
"fishman" because I love to fish and "pa" because I used to live in Pennsylvania (Delaware County and Philly) although I'm originally a S Jersey boy.
Well, I guess I can post mine again, as I did in the original link on my first post of this thread...
Belonging to a few fishing forums, mine follows that theme...
One of my first boats was a 16' Carolina Skiff...hence Skiffin16
I am...a mom....crazy a lot of the time!
i will have all the new b's so they do not need to look it up
firstpotpe forced into semi retirement put out to pasture early
I always smile when I see one of your posts.....but I have to confess, I smile because I always think "potpie".
It was always one of my favorite comfort foods.
Went to university off Iowa, the Hawkeyes and then my birth day.
