This is an edited, somewhat updated version of a post I made quite some time ago. I did a quick search, and did not see a similarly posted thread, so I thought I would start it again. I think these kind of posts are fun, even if they are frivolous.
" I was just wondering how, and /or why you folks chose the particular moniker, user-name, screen-name, log-on name (or what ever you call it) you use.
I have noted that some are quite usual, every-day names (i.e."Mandi", "James", "Elizabeth"...). Some are a little more descriptive and theme-oriented (i.e."Baby Mike", "Baby Lizzie","BabyDenise"...). Some are a play-on-words (i.e."Nam Repaid"...). Some names are just extremely cute ( i.e. "MandyBear" ). Some are whimsical (i.e."Potty Pants", "NoisySecret"...) some are comical, some are cryptic, and some I just don't understand at all ( Why would you call yourself "Dipshit" ?, when I last posted this, there really was a member here who called himself Dipshit.). I am not sure, but I suspect many user-name come from animated stories or cartoons.
The name you are given by others may not reflect how you feel, or how you view yourself, but a name choosen by yourself might provide some insight into your thoughts and feelings (or maybe not). Anyway how did you decide on your on-line name here at ADISC ? "
