What's in a name?

Mar 21, 2017 5:40 PM

I went really far back we had this thread awhile ago. I love hearing how everyone decided on their screen name. So ready, set, write.....

Mar 21, 2017 5:41 PM

My boring initials, literally no thought here. Wish it was something much more interesting. Who is next?

Mar 21, 2017 5:49 PM

Short for my name, Phoenix... Not a lot of thought there, I was in crazy pain when I joined 😊

Mar 21, 2017 5:53 PM

Nickname from my husband + my age πŸ™‚

Mar 21, 2017 5:58 PM

I love dressing westren style as I can afford it

My sister is 13 months older than me. When I was born she couldn't say Melanie... She pronounced it as Mimi. So I have had the nickname all my life. Normally if I am in a group etc that involves chronic pain I use the nickname in hopes some of the people who used to be in my forum are still around. Silly I know but hey... I yam what I yam. When I was a little girl my great grandmother would get so mad because she thought everyone was calling me meanie. :)

Kay is my middle name.

Mar 21, 2017 6:12 PM

Mimikay. That is so cute . My daughter got her Nick name the day she was born at the hospital because my nephew at the time was a year old and couldn't say her name so now . She gets mad if anyone outside of the family calls her it .

Mar 21, 2017 6:24 PM

Mine is a nickname from when I was little, I'm not sure who came up with it. I'm the oldest sibling and the oldest cousin on my mum's side and when young nearly all of them couldn't say Sarah-Jane so Sezzy came about....There are arguments about how it's spelt as well, I spell it with the Z's as do a lot of my cousin's but my next sister down and some of my other cousin's spell it with S's lol
It's a name that's stuck with me and one I actually like!

Mar 21, 2017 7:50 PM

Sezzy. I think with z 's is really uniqueπŸ˜‰ I love the way you spell your name

Mar 21, 2017 8:12 PM

When I made mine, I didn't realize I would want to share so much because you guys are so supportive. I wish I would have picked something more anonymous.

Mar 21, 2017 8:13 PM

lol, no need to hide no judges

I had a car that was decorated with alien πŸ‘½ stickers and sci-if stuff because I love sci-fi and fantasy so much. But, because I commuted 70 miles one way 15 years ago for my job, I practically lived in my car back then. It was so messy. My daughter, one day called my car the messy alien as a joke. It stuck with me ever since and I use it to this day.

I'm a Star Wars geek and I jokingly said to my family that I would be Darth Kitty Whiskers. It's now my screen name....lol. I think my youngest son's cat appreciates the name.🌞

mine is just a reminder that everyday still alive and breathing is a good day

Mar 22, 2017 9:48 AM

Mine is VERY simple & basic...
Gammi is what my grandchildren call me & the "B" is the first letter of my last name.

@Blabla if you message the moderators and tell them that you want to change your screen name and ask them what you want it to be and they will tell you if it is available and confirm if you want to change it or not

Apr 09, 2017 10:16 AM

My name is just what I am. I'm Tired. I'm in pain and I'm insane

Apr 09, 2017 2:30 PM

Mine is mine & Rick's Geocaching name. I miss Geocaching. ..

BattlinKat is a play on Battlin Jack Murdock from Daredevil (which is my all time favorite comic.) And Kat is nickname I've had for years, hence Battlin Kat. Plus, I like to think I can take my pain down like a boxer in the ring. It may win a few rounds, but I'm the ultimate victor. 😀

Long time ago was reading the book of Revelations in the Bible. I wanted to be one of the overcomes.

I already had some medical issues. But was in a horific car crash that they were suprised I survived that has left me permanent disability. So I am trying to "overcome" all of it now...

It's a one off from a web comic I like and I have a sticker of it on my walker. It's a drawing of a cat with a big human bottom. It makes people laugh all the time and me too.

Apr 25, 2017 8:35 PM

Apr 25, 2017 8:55 PM

Mine is a nickname from a motorcycle club I belong to (even though I haven't been able to ride in a while). Its part of my name Cynthia. Everyone calls me Cyn and my husband heard one of my friend call me Cynsational so that's what my tag is. Lol

Let's breathe some life back in this thread

Oct 02, 2018 2:11 PM

Just my initials, nothing exciting or creative. Next....

Oct 02, 2018 4:08 PM

Okay I'll bite.... Mine is I am a Mom who loves her Mopars and actually that is what a lot of what my friends in my Mopar car club's call me.

Years ago Hardee's gave out "Raisin Men" toys in the kids meal. We got one that had the body of big lips, and I gave it to my hubby. He sat it on his desk and his co-workers started calling him Flappy. Since he always called me his "lady" (from a song by the Commodores way back...), I chose FlappysLady81 (81 the year we married). πŸ™‚β€πŸ™πŸŒΌ
