User Names ... How'd you come up with yours?

Someone posted a little way down about changing her user name and deleting the old one for anonymity. That just got me thinking, how did you come up with your username? If you care to share?

Mine is from the alphabet chart I used to have in my classroom. On the chart, Aa stood for "Apple Annie".

Mine is a pet name I called my dear grandmom. She would be thrilled that I went to college and became a teacher. So, I am Klarabelle in her memory.

To answer the question posted, I live in New Mexico and the Zia symbol is everything. It's on our flag, our license plates, it's the single most common tattoo, a nearby pueblo, etc. I wanted to name our daughter that, but my husband vetoed it. I have a friend who did name her daughter Zia. It's quintessentially New Mexican.

I grew up on the shores of one of the Great Lakes. My siblings and I spent our summers collecting beach glass. We had jars full!

With the age of recycling, beach glass is harder and harder to find.

But with the age of repurposing, I've now been able to have some made into earrings and necklaces, and I wear at least one every day. One touch, and I'm back at the lake.

Mine is a username I've used for various internet things since high school. I originally came up with it on a figure skating fan forum. At the time I created it I was really into kayaking, and I was 16, hence the "gurl" (which makes me cringe now!)

I am a blast when I drink Kahlua!

No, really, Baskin Robbins had a blended shake called kahluablast. Used to get it when I took my little ones. Then, when I needed a username, it seemed like a choice no one could spell, so it was available.

Mine’s pretty self explanatory. I’m a Virginia Tech grad (so is DH) and once a Hokie, always a Hokie.

I sometimes add my real name to it when creating usernames, but wanted more anonymity here.

I live in Chicago and love the whole culture around the Chicago Style Hot Dog (I have a wall dedicated to Chicago Hot Dog Art). As any Chicagoan will tell you, you absolutely do not put ketchup on a Chicago dog

Side note: last year I won the name the mascot competition at the Chicago Hot Dog festival with the name Noah Ketchup!

Trishg1 set up my PT account so she chose my name. It's the initials of the school we both worked at (PCS) and Lackey is a play off my last name and the word "lackey" for the fact that I was the school's slave.

I've been tempted to set up a new account simply to have a name I'd like better, but I'm lazy.

This is probably going to sound super weird, but mine is just a name I like...not my IRL name . I didn't want to have to come up with something clever, but I didn't want to use my actual name either. The 23 is how old I was when I first discovered PT . I'm in my 30's now!

This is also my second user name. The first one was my real first name and a number that most would know about me.

So anyway I couldn't think of anything else so I opened up a dictionary and pointed. I pointed to nucleus and thought that it fit.

Ramona Quimby's kindergarten teacher was named Miss Binney. I was teaching kindergarten when I joined PT so I went with it.

I’ve actually been around since 2005 or 2006, and I initially had a username that was my first name and last initial but that got too not anonymous when I started posting more, so I changed it to something anonymous and unique, but that made my name google searchable.

So I decided to pick a name that belonged to something else so that if you searched “Gromit,” you wouldn’t get PT. I don’t remember why I picked Gromit. Probably because I like cheese.

Great thread! I love the back stories.

Mine isn't very creative - when I joined PT my kids were in band. (It's my second account, since I used my real name on my first 2 or 3 posts.)

Because there is nothing more absurd than a penguin living in a dense, temperate coastal forest.

Also I love NZ, and hope one day to go bird watching there.

When I was working, I stayed up way too late. Now, it just doesn't matter how late I go to bed!

I tried to be clever.

Does anyone remember Tim the Tool Man Taylor? It was a sitcom. He had a neighbor, Wilson. They would talk in the backyard. The only part of Wilson that you could see was from his eyes to the top of his head.

When they greeted each other, Wilson would say "Hideeho Neighbor". I liked that.

Just a tiny bit about my pic. I had several in the beginning. Really pretty pictures, flowers, warm, fuzzy stuff.

Cab Calloway eventually came up in my search because he sang a song

And besides, don't you just want to laugh when you see his picture?!

I wanted my PT name to represent something I love, and I especially love yellow flowers of all types and feel joy when they're around me. Yellow tulips are my very favorite. And yes, I might have even cried over the exquisite beauty of a daffodil once....in front of my then teenage ds....

When I first started going online, I had a cat named Tiamat and adopted that as my user name. Tiamat-the-cat died in 2001, but Tiamat-the-user-name lives on.

Love this thread!

I've looked up a couple of these before .. lol I googled the meaning of ...

Tawaki and Persephone.

MACMama -- I thought you liked MAC makeup!

WalkDontRun, I thought this was in reference to telling the kids to walk in the halls and not run.

Mine is super lame.. I am ADDICTED to caffeine free diet coke but I thought that naming myself Diet Coke sounded so lame. So instead I thought Sprite.

In the past my password was always skittles.

Fun fact.. Sprite means an elf or fairy.

I'm getting my Master's degree in secondary Education and I live in NH. I was hoping other NH secondary teachers would want to connect. Not many secondary's.

Iím a science teacher so I loved Mrs. Frizzle. She is a great teacher! But Iím nowhere near that good and Iím very exhausted from just a few short years of teaching, hence the frazzled part.
