  • Well, I have just a random 'get to know ya' question. How did you decide to choose your user name? Or what significance does it have? I'm rather interested to see what some people's mean- lets see who's is the most unusual. (Oh, if its gross or "adult themed", keep it to yourself- I don't want to know)

    Mine is a pretty boring explination. I hadn't really planed for the question to be put upon me in the sign up form- so I just had a brain fart and put my name 'rosie' in, and I thought "thats the most boring user name ever" so I added the 'girl' to it. So now I'm 'rosiegirl'.

    What about everyone else? :)

    My very favorite movie in the entire world is "You've Got Mail", and the main character Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan)'s online name is shopgirl, thus providing the inspiration for my username!

    "Don't cry, shopgirl, don't cry".... :)

    "Don" means Mr. in spanish, but you use this form of "mr." in front of a first name (señor going before the last name= señor mahon, for example)... and my first name is narayan... which I couldn't register just as narayan because someone already had it (strange) so I went with "don_narayan" (Mr. Narayan). works for me and I don't forget who I am.

    jajajaja Don I like your nickname a lot, to me was strange when I first saw your intro, I thought firstly it was your name. But then I knew you knew spanish, then everything was clear.

    Mine is simple, My second name is Enrique (Henry), and the nickname associated is "Kike", everyone who knows me calls me that way, since my childhood. And my last name is Velazquez. So "Kik" from Kike and "Vel" from Velazquez.

    I first used it when I opened my first yahoo mail account in...uhmmm who knows when, maybe in 1996?
    I use this nickname everywhere, I got kind of used to it.

    Very boring. Contraction of my first and last name. Chosen because it is reminiscent of "eros", the winged statue in Piccadilly Circus, London (-:

    Well for me, "ber" comes from my name Amber; a lot of my friends call me that for short. The "seph" was added to make it more formal, so says a friend of mine. I actually didn't come up with it, a friend of mine did for my first email account a long time ago.

    I did not thought very long before choosing mine.
    I simply used the first letter of my three names to get CAM.and no it is not because it is a photo site.
    I liked its shortness

    Wish a very good time to you all.
