Usernames

So today I was thinking about usernames and was just wondering how everyone came up with theirs and if there is any special meaning behind them? 

 

I came up with mine before I discovered BT and in the most boring way possible haha. It's just my first initial and last name.

 

Note: I saw a topic on this but it was from 2011 and only a few people posted lol so I thought this might be fun to bring up again.

I feel really lucky that the one I have was even available! I've only been on BT since late last year. :smileyhappy:

Re: Usernames

Mine is my favorite horse I owned...Zippo Pine Sid = zpsid, and he was born in 1991 :smileyhappy:

Re: Usernames

Mine is just something I came up with very quickly when I accidentally clicked on BT, a couple years ago...and in a rush I spelled in wrong, but couldn't go back and fix it.  Usernames (as far as I know) are set once they are created.  So...now there is another makeupobsessed on here, just spelled correctly...

Re: Usernames

Lol at that last part!

Re: Usernames

I know right???  Sometimes it does get mixed up and it appears to be me, but the person doesnt come on often if at all anymore.  My avatar now surely tells the difference too.

Re: Usernames

Mine is hilarious unoriginal.  Emma Claire = emmaclaire.  Tada!

Re: Usernames

Mine is boring lol.. Julianie is my first name, but all my friends call me Jules, Julie, or Jay.

Re: Usernames

Mine is my daughter name and the first part of my name:smileyhappy:

Fatima is my daughter's name so i am fatimamummy. When I initially started to buy things from ebay, I was a new Mom and I was so drown in my daughter's love( Well I still love her more than any body else) she was the focus of my life and my thoughts so I choose this name as my ebay ID. Before discovering BT I wrote reviews on some products and instead of creating a new user name I put this one,,,,It was after that when I discovered BT and came to know that It will be my user id here as well.

Re: Usernames

I actually had spayne as a username before (first name beginning with S last name Payne, and it sounds like Spain).  When I had my two accounts merged, I lost access to it.  I added my middle initial so it would be easy to remember but it's not as cute :-\

Re: Usernames

My names stacey and i was born 1990. I wanted to put StaceyMUA90 but by the time i thought of that i couldnt fix it -,-.

Re: Usernames

Lari is my RL nickname (short for Larissa), and I'm loud and cheerful in person. In fact, I think I'm physically incapable of a whisper. Oops! But yes, this has been my internet handle for a little while. I came up with it years ago and it's stuck since then.

Re: Usernames

mine is because i love greyhounds---the dogs, not modes of transportation!  I love all animals and dog breeds, but greyhounds are my favorite dogs. they make amazing pets!

Re: Usernames

Mine's kinda boring too - tina is a nickname for my real name, a is my middle initial, and z is the initial for my last name.

Re: Usernames

I got my username because it's the same one I've used for the past 10-12 years. My nickname was Brenna Bombshell in high school, from an Operation Ivy song called Bombshell. I have it tattooed on my arm and everything. :smileyvery-happy: 

 

Re: Usernames

Good to know, malday :smileyhappy:  for some reason I've always read your name as "mal day" and wondered why you were having a bad day! Adjusting my brain to read m alday now though :smileyhappy:

 

my username is similar, I have a long last name, and my family has always shortened it to "urbie" when writing on gift tags or cards to friends and family (as in, "Love, The Urbies").

Haha, honestly it really didn't occur to me that it sounded like mal day or something unhappy until somebody mistyped it as malady once, but then again this username wasn't even intended for a forum or anything!

Re: Usernames

I've mentioned this in another thread, but my username is the name of my cooking and baking blog. It came from an inside joke with a friend about how she was a bit of a Marthabot (Martha Stewart), she loved to emulate a 50's housewife. I always told her that I was no Martha! So, when it came to me creating my website, I was going to go with NotMartha but that didn't really make sense without her last name, Betty Crocker was a lot more distinct. It kind of stands for me making things from scratch, not from a box, and all that.

Re: Usernames

my username was supposed to be grits, but that was taken, so I added the extra 't'. 

So now it means "girl raised in the true (lol) south"
