Names we choose
« on: March 09, 2010, 02:08:20 PM »

I notice how often Arcturus is mistaken for a guy. And that led me to wondering how we forum family members chose our 'handles'. For me - 'Onelovedread' - came about because I lived in Jamaica for 24 years before coming to NY. Because I have 'dreadlocks' some of my acquaintances thought I was a rastafarian (a sect who believes that Haile Selassie, the former emperor of Ethiopia [who is now quite dead] is God.)  And Bob Marley who actually was a rastafarian sang that classic 'One Love' so I guess because of my locks and background, the name sort of stuck to me. I am not and never wanted to be a rastafarian, but I do like my 'dreadlocks'. Maybe it's been done already, but for us 'newbies', could you 'guys' share how you chose your names? I think it would be most interesting. What about you guys? What do you think?

Yeah i think i started one called "reason behind the name" or something like that.  My handle is my initials plus my three kids initials which makes 4 so you have AK4.

We are

Anthony (me)
Anthony (first son)
Aariyah (daughter)
Anthony (last son)

LOL :D  Dont worry, we call the kids by their middle names to avoid confusion.  Come to think about it, no one calls me by Anthony either but by my nickname Sam.  Crazy.

Mine is too boring to type out.  Mostly I just wanted to differentiate from all the other David's and Dave's posting.  

We are 1/3 of all English Speaking males, btw.

Sure, Lupac sounded like a kind of werewolf-elf. I don't know. I made up the name when I wanted to post on a forum where no one would know me. (LGMR is my normal forum name.) It kind of stuck after a while.

Hey Dave, one time I was going to tell you that if I added an S to my last name then we'd have the same last name! OR You could take the S off your name and we'd have the same last name! haha!! and do you remember that Dave UK, once right after we started using FaceBook thought that we were husband and wife because he thought we had the same last name! I thought that was pretty cute..so it's good that you are Dave in Tenn and I am Ninny so on the forum there is no mistaking!!  hehe!! ouch!! sorry Dave, I just thought it was cute!  :D I didn't reveal your last name in case it's a secret!! hehehe!!  :-X

Kathy, I'm glad you specified it was Dave_UK that did that.  So many Daves, so few bullets.

Mine is pretty bizarre.  I've had some people think that I'm one of those white supremists thinking that my handle is an offshoot of 'aryan'.  But the truth is much more mundane.  Twenty years or so ago I was on staff of a AOG megachurch and one of the ministries I was involved with was the multimedia ministry.  This was before the computer imagining and simulation era.  When we wanted to animate scenes (such as our animated christmas tree star) we would use 35mm projectors to quickly flash several images from different slide projectors in order on a screen to simulate a moving image.  The device that did it had the brand name of 'arion' and it kind of stuck.  That is the screen name I have used since the earliest days of the various bbs and bulletin boards.

I use G.Driggs for the same reason Dave uses Dave in Tenn, as there are at least 2 or 3 other George's here. ;)

My original handle when I first joined BT was 'jakfr0s' because Im from way up north in Alaska and that is how my grandmother use to pronounce 'jack frost'.

As a child I loved to look at the stars. I still do! :)...though more now in a spiritual sense. :)

Psa 19:1  To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork.

When I joined the Forum I was inspired to nominate a Star to be my Avatar. There have been many joyful, twinkling exchanges about my Avatar here in the Forum that I have been blessed to enjoy, notwithstanding some that have also been quite humorously embarrassing too.

God is Merciful and building us all up in His Faithfulness as we recognize His Spirit here gathering us to Himself in the heavens of His abode among us.
 
Psa 89:2  For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
Psa 89:5  And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.

My name is Linda, my close friends and family have always called me Lin and my husband gave me the pet name Linny.
The first forum I ever spent time in I used Linny and I liked that my new found internet friends called me that so I always use it when I have to name myself now.

The initial of my 1st name, my last name, and my birthday (8th of January).

I did not always have a picture for my avatar but decided on one a while ago. I thought of this picture when this verse came to mind:

John 3:4-5  I [Jesus] must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

The sun setting still gives it's light but night is coming when there is no more light.

Hey, I like that, Marques!

Ninny:
Shortened version of nincompoop, a silly, idiotic person. can be used affectionately.

Well! I NEVER!! My Grandson who is now 12 has called me Ninny since he started talking...he couldn't say "Nanny" it has nothing to do with being any of those words above..I do think when my grandchildren call me 'Ninny' they do so affectionately..Lots of other people call me Ninny, too! I'm afraid to ask why! :D

In my youth I had this big fat pimple on my butt.  It really hurt so I showed my mom who said it is starting to fester.  We all know that I am a pain in the butt so I kept the name.

Oh and the reason for my avatar....2 reasons, i love patrick.  Hes the most hilarious cartoon character ever IMO and the other reason  is, if any of you have seen the episode where this came from Patrick  was trying to build a pin for spongebobs horse [seahorse in the cartoon] and at the very end of the cartoon patrick tries to walk through a doorway with that board nailed to his head and he cant get through because the board keeps hitting the doorway.  This is how i feel when i try to explain some of the truths of God to someone and they just wont let it in.  LOL
