What does your screen name mean?

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.


Do tell.

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.

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"

No celtic here! I work in a library - maybe a fondness for prose?

Aha! Toldja it wasn't her real name! She'd admit it if it was.

At any rate, it suits you Luba.

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!

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

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"! I was going to use something with my motorcycle in it, but that usually raises a few eyebrows.

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?!!!
