What Is The Significance Of Your Screen Name?

70 posts in this topic

Mine's pretty simple. I hate wearing shoes! :P I'm in flip flops from May until October.

 

My parents had a time with me when I was a kid. I remember having my shoes duct taped to my feet once. Guess they were at wits end with me.

 

Now I have the same problem with my oldest but I usually let it go.

 

Where does your screen name originate from?

Take care,

Good question, Barefut. I was like that as a kid and during the summer I find it difficult to keep shoes on except when I go out. In winter it is mostly thick socks in and lined boots when I go out.

 

My display name was given to me many years ago by one of my production crew. He used it a bit sarcastically as it was difficult for him to take direction from a woman. It stuck, however, and the rest of the group joined in. I have been using it online for many years. Jefa (pronounced HAY' fa) is the feminine version of the Spanish word jefe which means chief or boss. My actual id is jefalump which is one of my husband's nicknames for me - chief lump, a play on heffalump - he buys me all kinds of cute little elephants. :)


Warm wishes,

Jefa

I should have been called Barefut or flipflop because I'm like you Barefut, I hate shoes!

 

My screen name comes from the nickname my husband calls me. When we first met 20 years ago, he called me "Sweetness" and has ever since. "Sweet" pops out a lot too, so therefore my screen name.


Warm and gentle hugs,

epasen is actually Epa Sen.

 

One of my friend once said that Epa sounds good (nickname from Emmi), which was a joke at first, but now some people call me Epa.

 

Sen means something like "late" in swedish. My last name is Myöhänen (Myohanen), and sen in finnish is myöhäinen, so there's only a one letter difference. :P

Well, mine isn't very creative and I don't think it could get any simpler. First letter of my name. Venessa. Only my closest friends have ever called me Vee, so I thought it would fit in nicely on the sclero boards, especially since you've all become so close to my heart. I also have another screen name that I sometimes use. It's "mommydude". My middle daughter was in the habit of calling everyone "dude" for a while, and she called me that one night. I told her that she was not to call her mommy that. So she said, "OK Mommydude!" and I've used it ever since. Her and my youngest still call me that once in awhile. I thought it was cute.


Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

 

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

Hi, Pamela. My first husband called me Sweetie because he didn't like either of my names, so we both called each other Sweetie most of the time. Once I asked my three year old son to call his father for dinner and he stood in the hall and yelled, "Sweetie, dinner's ready!"

 

 

 

I am really enjoying this thread. All of them, really -- it's nice to get to know a little more about my new friends.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

My screen name comes from the ocean that I live near on the coast of New Jersey. I love the ocean and used to swim a mile a day in it before I got sick. Now I have a catheter in for kidney dialysis so I can't go in the water at all and it breaks my heart. It's "my ocean" but I share!

Doomer, Ok let's see. Where do I start. My last name is Doom. Go ahead and say it. I worked in the Emergency Room. Ok, Now that is a good one. How about Every Ready. The Rabbit got that one. I picked up that name at work. The girls would say things like lets all go to Doomer's house after work. Latte's Yumm! Then the kids in the neighborhood would say lets go to Doomer's house and see who will come out to play. So, I guess I should have used Doomer's instead of just Doomer. I have been Doomed and Double Doomed and triple Doomed. My oldest son is Dr. Doom PHD It is a strange German name that we love. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Talk about brain fog. Gee whiz. I know you all noticed and were too kind to say anything. Screen Name. Duh! Sheryl. That's my name why not use it. I used it, because I like it. I was thinking email address name. O K ! I am now on the right page. Thank you very much. I've got it together this morning, I hope. Have a Warm and Thoughtful day. I am off to a Wedding this afternoon. A day of driving and resting and eating and relaxing. Fun! Sheryl

I also use my real name. I've never had a nickname and I'm not bright enough to pick a cute or original screen name. My only thing is that even though my name is spelled"Sherion" it is pronounced Sharon. I believe it came from bad penmanship on my birth certificate. LOL

I love this thread, it's the first time I have smiled all day I think. My name is actually Tamara but I have been called Tammy for years (easier to pronounce and when you live in the south, the easier the better when it comes to that "suuuthern draaaw"...lol). I also use bright_halo alot because my mom has always told me that I am her angel.

Great Topic:

 

My name is as a result of my Bruce Springsteen fanaticism. I have been a Springsteen fan for years. For those who are fans, you may recall the character "GocartMozart" from the Boss's song Blinded by the Light, later redone by Manfred Mann.

 

"GocartMozart was checkin out the weather charts to see if it was safe to go outside"

Sam is my screen name and its also my nickname in real life. I had gotten it when I was born in 1965 from my mom who like watching the Show Bewitched, she like how Darin said "Sam" so she gave me the nickname Sam and the show came out the same year I was born. LOL!!

That is how I got it....

GocartMoz,

 

And little Early Burley came by in his Curly Wurly and asked me if I needed a ride!!!

 

LOL, sorry I couldn't help myself. Never did know what that line meant, maybe I don't want to know. As long as I can sing along!

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

When I was a kid, many, many years ago, my uncle used to tease me and call me Whirlaway after a racehorse, because I could run so fast. When I first set up my e-mail accnt, I tried to get whirlaway, but it was taken, so whirlway it was. Too bad I can't still run that fast, I can't run at all now, due to the many surgeries I have had.

I do have another handle but don't use it much and not here at all, it is Mamamariner. My kids call me that due to the fact that I am a complete and total Mariners baseball fan. My, oh, my! People in the pacific northwest should understand that. d:0) (If you look at that symbol sideways, it is me wearing my baseball hat! Maybe I should have put a frown on the face since they were eliminated yesterday, but hope springs eternal when it comes to baseball, there is always next season. :D

Hey Mamamariner,

 

I guess I could be Mamahawk as I am a die hard Seahawk's fan. Yesterday's game was a nail biter! My 5 year old told me he could hear me yelling clear down at the neighbor's house. Oh well.......its good therapy! :lol:

 

GO HAWKS!


Take care,

Barefut

I use Annie - my middle name is Anne and I like it better than my first name. And N is the initial of my last name.

So interesting to hear everyone's name story...

Tru is my dear, special and adorable cocker spaniel. He is the love of my life together with his sister Mita (pronounced meata). Without these two, my life would be in despair. Tru is 12, and our time is limited, but I will do all I can to make sure his days are as happy and loving as he's made mine. Mita 8 and all still full of "puppy". My little loves.
