How did everyone come up with their screen name, and what is its meaning?

Some are obvious, but others are less obvious....GlassLass...Luba.....etc.

Gorgeous Glasslass. :) I was thinking more of a scottish theme.

For me there was some stock a long time ago with that name cinnabear and I always like it. I'm not in the stocks though wish I was. :D

GlassLass that is beautiful!!!!!!!

I don't think Luba is her real name, but I'll let her speak for herself...

Cinnabear, what exactly was "Cinnabear"? Was it candy? A line of toys? I know you didn't buy stock in it, but do you remember what it was? I'm really curious now.

Sammiec, I always say your screen name as though it is one word lol "Sam-me-eck"

She said in another thread a WHILE back...

Luba is Luba ...means Love in slavic languages.
My heritage is about as mixed as a mutt that nobody can figure out!
From east to west and north to south! I've got it all in me!

I wasn't making it up!! :p ;)

Glasslass (I'll stop calling you "Glassglass" starting today -- I guess I never read it that carefully...) I love that stained glass piece! My father was big into stained glass, and since he was colour blind, I often helped him coordinate the colours for a new piece, so I used to feel like it was partly my hobby too. (Funny choice of hobby for a colour blind man, but actually, he appreciated colour more than anyone I've ever known!) During the last few years, he was into making stepping stones -- have you ever tried that?

Moontamara is my Korean married name... not too original!

My boyfriend was nicknamed "IGGY" by his friends of many years not sure why!, so I assummed the female version IGGETTE I think he loves the idea but hasn't said so, the macho thing and all.....lol

Sorry Cactus, guess I am gulable :o :( Luba likes to play games - at least we know that she's a woman --- or do WE??!?! :eek:

Actually, Moonie, I've always thought picking out the colors was the hardest part. Colored glass changes when the light comes through it depending on what color is next to it and size of the pieces of glass. You know what I'm talking about. That's also the only time I ever cut myself. I get careless sorting through the pieces of glass, never when I'm working on it. My hubby got an Xray screen that was being thrown out by the nursing department at the college. He fixed it and then mounted it under my workbench so I can pull it out and lay the small pieces on the lighted surface. It helps alot!

My granddad was color blind also.

My favorite kittys name is Sneaky, I had to take it, and I had to add the number behind it because plain old Sneaky is ALWAYS taken where ever I go :(
I too thought GlassLass as being along the lines of Scottish.
And every time I read Sammiecs name it sounds like Sammy-yack in my head :) Sorry if I offended anyone :rolleyes:

Well, I'm trying my hand at some freelance writing. Since I have yet to be paid for my work, for now I'm just "writing 4 fun"! :D I was going to use something with my motorcycle in it, but that usually raises a few eyebrows. ;)

moontamara, i thought your name was tamara (i had a friend with this name) and that you had a thing for the moon, well i was a little off hey :D :D isnt it funny the names we pick, well melanie means black, i was named by a doctor at the hospital who had enough of mum and dad fighting ovwer my name so the staff named me themselves after taking a vote, dont think it would be legal these days though.. :D
and HEY i missed lubas bra, oh **** i miss all the good stuff :o

moontamara
August 11th, 2004, 01:54 AM
Melanie -- you were right about the Tamara part. That is my given name (and also my name here). Moon is my husband's family name. So basically I'm using my real, legal name but instead of in the Canadian order, in the Korean order. There. I've just outed myself and now everyone knows my real name -- Tamara Moon! It just doesn't sound real, so it makes a great handle! Writing 4 fun -- I'm in the same boat as you! Wouldn't it be nice to be "Writing 4 fun and $" though? Someday, right?!!!

See what I miss when I have a broken computer?????????? :mad:

Catt is a shortened version of an old "chat" nickname I had many years ago - "BadCattitude". It eventually got shortened to Bad, Bad Catt, then now its just Catt. Nothing overly fantastic but it works for me!!!

My real name is CHRIS, not Catherine or Katie or whatever forms that resemble "catt" (I get that a lot) ....Chris, short for Christine...plain, boring and simple!!! :rolleyes:

I MISS YOU GUYS!!! CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY COMPUTER BACK!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

melanie
August 11th, 2004, 04:38 PM
catt, we have been missing you too, oh please get that computer back :D
tamara moon, you are so very lucky. they say there is alot in a name and a unique one often brings extra opertunities and luck, the opertunities come in the form of- eg you go for a job, your name will stand out of the pack and you have a very good chance there, i have surveyed resumes myself for a position and gave it to a person with star as a name, it stood out so much and i kept returning to it and she got the job, you are very lucky :D .
forgot to mention why i love chico and her name, do you have the lollies called chico babies?? they are chocolate jelly babies (little jelly lollies/sweets) and they are just so tasty, that is the first thing i thought of when i saw your name, oh yummy lollies they are my favourite and i could eat them by the bucket :D :D .

My screen name is for my dog. I was going to make it "Spoiled Brat" but decided that was too long. Nop, just plain old "spoiled."

EmmaJean
August 14th, 2004, 12:09 PM
I've actually been rather curious about your name. It's a different one.

Emma is the first name of one of my dogs, whose full name is EmmaLou.

Jean is the nickname of my cat, Louise. I call her, "Screamin' Jean"

SSAC
August 18th, 2004, 01:48 PM
Nothing original...SSAC...Sam (me) Sheeba, Abbi, Chloe (my dogs). It's also the initials for something else that I know, but I didn't realise this until after many postings. (sorry can't say) :p

krdahmer
August 19th, 2004, 07:50 AM
OK...K is for Kelly (my given name)
R is for my maiden name
Dahmer is my husbands name

Windy is named Windy because we brought her home on a super windy day ( that and my dad says it's because she had killer gas when she was a kitten- she could clear a room!)

Smoke was part of a dynamic duo...Smoke and Ashes (from a song by 13 engines) Until Ashes passed, so now she is just Smoke! It was also because of their colouring.

Cordelia is named Cordelia because well I am a Tragically Hip nut! And it was the only thing that suited her...as I had already had Little Bones.

Eldorado is named Eldorado for the same reason!

Now you know the whole story...now I wanna know how they came up with Den-Den!! ;)
