Why did you choose your nickname?

Hi everyone,

Guest asked me in another thread how I came up with my nickname and I thought it would be a good idea for a thread. (I think this was done already a while ago)

Anyway, as I explained to him, there was really nothing "profound" nor any hidden meaning behind the name......

When I signed up here, I had chosen several different nicknames but every one I picked had already been taken. At the time...I was becoming impatient...and happened to be sucking on a lollipop...and well...the rest is history.

Would anyone else care to share how they chose their name?

turnabout came because ... I wanted to make a turnabout. It's as simple as that (and probably self-explanatory. lol) as that.

I guess there is also a bit of a tongue-in-cheek implication that I think I'm pretty clever, too, and can give a person a turnabout way of looking at things. I'm a bit mischievous that way.

Yea lucky you werent teaching dorritos and cheese or else you'd have to type that in everytime to login eh.

I chose mine cause it was really anonymous. I'm bad at choosing nicknames, have no clue.

I had hoped someone would recognize where my nickname comes from .... but no one let on that they did, so I put it out as a puzzle to solve on the "Beatles" thread awhile ago. (And those super sleuths figured it out in short order, given some fairly subtle clues 🙂

It's a Vulcan word. I'm a Trekkie. So there, now you know!

kroika! (live long and prosper, everybody)

My oldest daughter set up my computer and she chose my name for me. I'm her mama and I've been called cinnamon since I was 14.

Jigsaw chose her name because of the abuse she endured. She felt all jumbled up on the inside.

I chose the name "Matthew" because I often reflect on a certain verse in the book of Matthew. It deals with worries (anxieties). Matthew 6:34. "Therefore don't be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day."

"65" is the year I was born. 🙂

Matthew65. I love you name. That is my absolute most favorite verse in the whole Bible. God's slapped me w/ that one over and over, but in a good way.

I think my nickname is pretty self-explanatory...it is the way I was feeling when I came here, on the verge of filing for divorce.

I chose mine because "lollipop", "guppy", "guest", and the rest of yours were already taken. I thought of being "lollipop2" but didn't want to play second fiddle. (j/k)

I was eating a chicken sandwich at the time and almost became "big chicken". The sandwich also had turkey on it; good thing I didn't think about that then. :o)

Seriously, I've always considered myself a seeker after wisdom and knowledge. I added my first initial "w" at the end because "seeker" was already used.

I was "patchwork" on another site, long ago, because I felt I was a collection of various experiences all randomly thrown together, like a quilt.

Here's another question for y'all (and Lolli, please forgive me for asking this on your thread). If you had to choose another nickname on this site, what would it be? I'll have to think about this myself.

Lolli,

It's good you didn't consider yourself to be eating a "sucker" at the time. My, what's in a word, no?

I think if I could have a different name, I'd like LadyBug. To some, they are small & insignificant; to others they meant cheerfulness & luck. I guess I can relate to both... I also think they are beautiful & have a tiny one tattooed (sp?) on my back in amongst some flowers.

Juanita, I like ladybugs, too. That would be a neat nickname.

RW, I had a feeling that's why you chose your moniker.

If I had another nickname, I think it would be "mantis". I used to love to feed flies to the praying mantises at one house when I was a kid. Those insects are so neat to watch.

((((((((((((((Mama))))))))))))))--my Pastor actually brought this one to my attention. He told me to read the entire chapter 6 of Matthew and made me think of which verse would be the most applicable to me. He never gave me the answer--i figured it out on my own with the help of God.

This name was origonally a part of my email address, one that I now longer have.

I created that account to use when I was working on a campaign in my state to defeat an amendment banning gay marriage.

I wrote several pieces that I sent out via e-mail to various local newspapers and magazines. I needed a new address, and picked Free2Choose because I felt like it fit. After all, it was what I was fighting for. To be Free2Choose who I wanted to love and marry.

Now, it fits who I am so well, I would never get rid of it. I love it, it is so me and EVERYthing I stand for.

i chose my anme because when i came to aac, i was 'on my way' and it is a daily walk and process, never really arriving...just always growing.

seek...
have seen some baby praying mantis' right out front on the sidewalk the last few days. they are about an inch long and brown. i thought they were almost extinct at one time, but guess not.

Tumbleweed, a weed broken off at the roots, just rolling around on its own. Driven about by the wind.

omw,

I envy you and your baby praying mantises. I'm glad they're still around. They're the only insect that can turn its head, like a person. If you hold a fly by the wing toward the side of a mantis' head, it will, after a few seconds, suddenly turn its head and look right at the fly, then slowly reposition itself to strike. Very cool.

tumbleweed,

In my early college days, I would likely have chosen your nickname for myself. I considered myself a tumbleweed, blowing wherever the wind blew me, with no roots. Glad those days are over for me.
