How did you come by your user name?

  1. Oct 20, 2009 #1
    For some reason, I am always curious about how people get their usernames. For example, humanino discussed his in one thread and I never would have guessed it, but I should let him tell about it if he sees this thread and wants to.

    I made up mine when I was disgusted with a former job and was ready to go on to another more promising one, and with a bit of a take on early children's books.

    What's your story if you care to share?

    I got mine because I was trying to make up an email address that was original and didn't need to have any numbers in it :P

    sorry.lol :) so then when I signed up for forums and online things after I had that email I always made suer it resembled my email. Most forums don't let you put the period so instead I stuck with Sorry!

    Geez, this is strictly voluntary, for heaven's sake...

    I was contemplating my username and started looking around my desk for ideas; I happened to be studying Cell Biology before getting online and saw the words "wobble base" underlined in my notes. Voila!

    Those who have never jumped huge waves on a jetski, don't know what they are missing. It's very addictive and obssessive.

    A carry-over username from a different time and place when I was a summer student programmer.

    It's meant to be thought provoking about technology and the direction that it could be headed.

    Mine's pretty self explanatory. That, and including myself, there's been over seven different B. Elliott's in my family.

    Mine is just a random series of letters and numbers. The human mind has a propensity for finding patterns where there are none, and some PFers have made some assumptions about my name. I don't know why, my name is Fwodwick.

    I just wanted something simple. I am sure that I was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at the time as well.

    Mine came from my complete lack of creativity. That combined with the fact that I don't care enough about a username on a forum to devote any time thinking up a good one.

    I wish my last ferret Turbo could still be alive to be buddies with our new dog Duke. Duke is very gentle. One of my neighbors is the town's fire chief and he has his own one-man log-trucking business. His a big bear of a guy, and his little Pomeranian, Smokey goes with him everywhere. Duke met Smokey at a distance a week ago, and yesterday Ronnie brought her out in his arms for a close-up introduction. Duke was friendly and gentle, and probably could have lapped her to death. Tail-wagging all around!
