    I was lawfully wed this morning... time for a name change to make me more modest :blushing: (since my original name was chosen the week I defended).

    Due to the now complete-alliteration in my name, shall it be:
    D-cubed, D^3, or 3D?

    Other suggestions?

    And YES, I am changing it mainly for the alliteration, but mildly because the fact that my heritage is from the alsace-lorraine region so I have a german last name while I am really more french in heritage... and his heritage is french-canadian with the corresponding french name. o:)

    I kinda like the original - physics girl phd

    But one could also consider Thrice-D, Dx3, Triple-D, D-D-D or D+D+D.

    So many choices.

    Does html code work in the user-name fields? If so, D3 might be a nice touch. Just put sup before the 3 and /sup behind the 3 (both enclosed in square brackets).

    If LaTex works in the handle field, I think it would look best as [tex]D^3[/tex]

    Nice one!

    How about the obviously boring handle "moreso"?

    The reason for that choice is quite plain to see, but if you haven't yet had your morning cup of coffee, here's the explanation:

    Seeing as how you're both of European descent, D.D.D will likely be pronounced more like duh duh duh (than dee dee dee), which immediately brings to mind the Morse code for the letter O (_ _ _, said da da dah), and naturally, that leads you to the only English homophone of "Morse O" : 'moreso'.

    Sorry for explaining the painfully obvious!

    That's the same as 3D, isn't it? (At least, the only girl I ever knew who was a triple-D was definitely 3 dimensional. :tongue2: )

    Isn't it hard to change the name on your marriage certificate after the fact?

    I kinda like PGPhd, too. :)

    Anyway, you'll need to settle on a name before we induct you into the Sisterhood. We need to engrave your name on the sacred stone tablets and it's a real byatch to change them later. At least we aren't doing the tattoos anymore. :biggrin:

    You are still doing the ritual scarification and the binding of feet to keep them at the sisterhood size, aren't you? I hate to see your standards slide. :rolleyes:

    Monogamous D.


    I suggest another marriage. Polygamous D. sounds better.

    Can you wear a men's size 8?

    Just how big are your boats? Are we talking skiff or pontoons? :eek:

    (That's an impressive pair o'skis she's got there. She ain't wearin' no skis, she's barefoot.)

    Did you marry Rach3, per chance?

    He changed his name too, except his name change was because he was too lazy to type in so many letters - except then he lost his new username in a flood, then lost his second new username when his dog ate it).

    I can't help but notice all three will be suspiciously shorter to type than your current one.

    I can CRAM 'em into mens 8's... if you intend to use those for the binding...

    Hope you are not proposing a new line of naming tho'... can't be "missus big foot" or I'd be encroaching on zoobie territory and zoobyshoe might get excited... not sure how zoobies deal with monogamy/polygamy :rofl:
