How did you choose your username?

Post  TP on Wed Oct 05, 2011 12:32 am

Just a light thread and curious? How did you choose your name?

TP is short for something longer and is the name of a hotel.

Mine was frugaliciousness - which, although a mouthful, I thought summed me up as being frugal but not 'down trodden'

froogs is just short, sweet and adds a bit of fun to frugal I guess.

I have the very same pink doll in my avatar. They were called Bitty Beans and it was given to me when I was born. My dear nan used to call me Bitsy Beans when I was a baby as I wore the very same shocking pink in a babygro, bless her she got the name wrong. Mind you I can't hear "bitty" without thinking of Little Britain Shocked

It's how I always start my CV! I worked as a professional juggler and stiltwalker in my teens up til I was about 20! Bit different to a paper round but there you go. My full working name was Mel the Magnificent, the Stiltwalking Queen but that would be too much of a mouthful.

mine's got a long story.

I'm a massive red dwarf fan and my favorite character was one who turned up in one episode. Mr Flibble the psychotic holographic penguin hand puppet. So for a long time online I've called myself Mrs Flibble. friends on a parenting forum who became friends in the real world started calling me just flibble, then flibsey. sometimes flib. wierdly, never my real name which is Emma lol.

I now sell hand made craft items under the name flibsey too.

Mine is an old nickname my best friend gave me over 40years ago.

Then someone introduced me at a Santa pod where I was racing to a fellow petrolhead by my real name but he automatically changed it striaght to Aisles which I was so suprized about as only my best friend had ever called me Aisles. This guy had never met my best friend either.

It then sort of stuck with some of my fellow petrol heads.

Mine is the name my father used to call my granny (his mother-in-law). Nothing to do with blogging Very Happy She died in 1985 and I don't think blog was even a word then.

My name is from "Waybuloo" (Kids TV show on Cbeebies), my daughter was watching it on TV when I joined and thought it would make a nice username.

I didn't want to use my MSE username as I use that one on a number of forums and a bit fed up with it!
