How did you come up with your username? Any significance behind it?

That's beautiful! And after all the years we've known each other I can't believe I've never asked you that question.

Mine is pretty self-explanatory. Wink But I made the new name because I didn't remember my old password and also wasn't sure if I wanted to come "out" with my old name. But now I do!! Missy said she can merge my names so I am just waiting patiently and I will have my old user name back.

That user name I gave that nickname the first time I saw my son. His eyes were so bright and angelic. Ever since then we've come across many people that have used that name to describe all of our eyes. So it is very special to me. Oh and the numbers are the days my kids were born. One on the 5th and one on the 26th.

Um.... if I admit this, I am going to reveal my super secret nerd side....

Maelani is a name I use on an online game, an MMORPG, called EverQuest 2. I've been using names starting with Mae for about 12 years now, so I even respond to it IRL. Maelani is one of my favorites I've come up with, I had alot of people ask me if I am Hawaiian because of it (which I'm not, but I find Hawaiians so exotic and beautiful).

I love reading the responses to these threads.

When I signed up here, I was active on another site as well, but wanted a place of my own, so wanted to come up with a completely different user name. I tried to pick something that would be more difficult to google and get my posts.

My name is a nickname I had as a kid. Remember those 25 cent machine sticky bugs? When I was about 2-4, my family would throw one up on the ceiling and leave the room. I'd stand there and watch it til it would fall down, at which point I would run from the room screaming "BUUUUG!!!". Then someone would come back in and do it again. It would entertain me for hours when we would visit our not kid-friendly grandparents' house. So they called me Jonibug (Joni is my name normally used, Joan is my real name). Some in my family still call me Jonibug.

Prudence because I think one should be prudent about what they post online in open forums- including Preg.org Wink I have seen the good, the bad, and the very ugly on this site.

Mine is a religious reference.... most likely WAY too complicated to explain. Wink

I tend to go by this, caritas (Latin for "love/charity"), I used to go by Step_On_Me in IRC because my real name is Stephanie and I used to be nicknamed steponme when i was in elementary school, etc.

I settled on this a couple years ago, and it's working for me. It's usually available when I go to sign up somewhere, so it's fairly universal now.

Mine is my last name. Some of Josh's friends used to call him by just his last name and I am his girl. Hence, lamonsgrl. LOL!

I was a staff member of an online game fan/help site and they sometimes had special events with changed usernames etc. BloomingRose was what was given to me and I kinda stuck with it. I like how it sounds and roses are my favourite flowers so it just really fits me :). I was never originally BloomingRose on here, I believe I was Krissy2600 - Krissy being the short form and what most family called me growing up, 26 being how old I was when I joined up on here, and the 00 was just something I needed because Krissy26 was taken and everything else was dumb/taken already. I have discovered on other sites that BloomingRose is already taken, so if you see that name on another site, it might not be me lol.

Me too Sad I was a mom to 1 at the time (I guess technically I still am...)

The username I normally use was taken when I joined, and it was sort of a matter of "come up with something" so now this is what I'm stuck with ;(

nori garsi is a nickname I've had since I was little. Nori is a nickname for Lenora and garsi is a play off my maiden name. It's funny because I have a ton of nicknames, no one ever calls me Lenora ever. A few weeks ago when we were in Vegas Chris called to me using my name and it sounded so strange because he almost never uses it.

Laura is my first name. Mae is a nickname that stuck after my my parents divorced and my mom got remarried. the papers put my middle name down as Mae. so after that my step dad (who is pretty much my dad) called me Laura Mae, especially when i was in trouble. It stuck. 78 is the year i was born. i try to be more creative with these things, but im not very good at it.

Actually, if you do a search for a username you want to use and send MissyJ a pm asking her to change it for you, she will. That's how I became BloomingRose :).

I started posting on a message board for a text-based fantasy game back when I was a teen and picked Ceres as my name then. She is a greek goddess and my sister would post with the name Eos, also a greek goddess. The screenname has just stuck with me ever since then. Sometimes if it is taken I will post as Mamakittys which is what I used to call my cat who passed away.
