How did you pick your screen name

Sunday, December 7, 2008 by Brysgirl | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

I was looking at some submissions for the GUI's when I thought to myself, "What made them think of that screen name?"From that thought and many like it, I decided to start this thread to enlighten others who might be asking themselves the same question.

So, if you could please share with the community how you chose your screen name, it would be greatly appreciated!

I'll start, My husband's name is Brian so, inevitably I am Brysgirl!(I'm sure the science behind that was mind-boggling)

LivinTarget
And my handle got shortened to Livin_Target in order to fit the length restrictions.

How's "Livin_Target" shorter than LivingTarget?

My nick is quote dull really, just based on my name.

 LOL .. hadn't really thought about it. Obviously it isn't...    In Quake and Quake2 the underscore wasn't used. I just picked that up while I was playing SoF2. Just so used to typing it that way I didn't even realize I had it in there when I typed that.  wow .. can you say brain fart? One of these days I'm going to have to learn to preview. I can spell it I just never seem to do it...

They had an on-line game then called Battle Tech. I loved the game, however, I sucked SOOOooo bad at it that the people in my clan called me their living target.
Before my wife and I dated we used to play Descent at the office.  She finally quit playing when we started naming games things like "Susan is a target" or "Susan is base".

Mine came from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Imzadi is a term of endearment between two lovers/soulmates. I actually used it because when it came time to come up with an email addy years ago the Imzadi book by Peter David was sitting in the bookcase next to me. I was trying to come up with something unique and that was it.

Uhm, yeah.... LOL... Unique is something like... Jogglebrock... If you can google it, it's not unique.... So Jogglebrock won't be unique very long either....

I am a biochemistry/molecular biology major (I'm really into science), so naturally I'm a huge fan of the book.

Tippytoenail is a combination of pet names. Toenail,Tippytoe,Toejoe and Diddo. The Avatar is little Toejoe. Diddo just kind of come out of using toe in all of the names and just kind of stuck with him.
