What is the origin of your forum name?

Recommended Posts

mho357

I've seen a lot of interesting handles on this site - I'm curious about the origins of many.

 

Anyone want to share the origin of their forum name?

 

I'll start - mho357 was the user ID that my very first ISP (Internet America) bestowed upon me. Pretty dull - huh?

From the day you joined I wondered if you knew that mho was in fact a word;

The SI derived unit of electrical conductance, equal to one ampere per volt. It is equivalent to the reciprocal of the ohm unit. Also called siemens.

Bunkins

My sisters used to call me Bunkins when I was little, and still do from time to time.. Dont know why I decided to use that one on here, just the first thing that came to mind..

 

I only use that one, my name which is Colt, or wheelieboy.. Wheelieboy came from back when I first got into drag racing, the first time my car pulled the front wheels off the ground, I was 17, messing around in a parking lot LOL.. Nobody in real life knows me by that nick-name anymore, the racing crowd I used to hang out with back in those days have moved away, or got out of racing..

This is a very popular topic, so I decided to make the thread a sticky & link to some of other/older threads of the same nature in my post:

 

What's in a name.

 

Off Topic: So how did you choose your name?

 

Usernames??

 

How did you get your Screen Name?

 

This is a good question, so it'll be good to see the many stories of how people got their nmes....I got mine from my nieces, by the way. :)

My name is Susan but my entire family calls me Susique. 333 is yet to be figured out. You see all my life I have awoken at 3:33 a.m. and so its kind of an unknown what the Universe is trying to tell me. Im hoping its $33.3 MILLION from the Lottery! :party:

It's a Welsh spelling of my real name :) Say it out loud.

It's not really a Welsh spelling. I just get tired of everyone spelling my name incorrectly. This spelling is so odd, that you have to look to get it.

JediSurfer

The first part of the name 'jedi' was given to me by my colleagues at work because of my high profit percentage and jedi like skills when dealing roulette and blackjack(I am any gambers worst nightmare) and the second part comes because I am a surfer before all else. Its my passion in life. The ocean rocks in ways human can only dream about.

Jill-O

Mine is among the least mysterious. The name I have always gone by (my middle name) is Jill. My last name is O'Roark. I've never "cared" if people on the internet know my full name and everyone's a click away from all my contact info.

Handybear

Handybear comes from the fact that I am big and hairy, hence the bear part. I am very handy at fixing and repairing things:

Mine too. Anyone can find out anything about me if they really want to. I used to do "skip tracing" and I know how easy it is. Besides when I was signing up, I put my name in thinking I would get one of those notices saying it was already taken, and was prepared to start adding numbers....it took my name the first time. :)

davef

I'd be in the "not inventive" camp, I usually use dferrie in forums, while I prefer strangers to call me David, I don't mind my friends calling me Dave. Since I wanted to make some new friends on DF (and I have) I decided to go with Dave + F for my surname (Ferrie) hence DaveF.
