After having read a recent post about some profile names being a turn off, this got me wondering about profile names and what makes us choose the one we have.
I apologise it this has already been done and, I'll admit to being lazy today and not doing a search. I think we're all allowed to have the odd lazy day every once in a while, aren't we? So I'm taking mine today.
Mine started back when I first registered for a chat room for the first time ever. When I had to choose a username, I had no idea. So, I picked up my Book of Shadows diary and went to my birthday and had a look at the closest festival celebrated to my birthday, which happens to be the festival of Beltane (also spelt Beltaine at times), so beltane is always part of my username. If it's already taken, I incorporate "wiccan" in the name somewhere.
So, how did you come up with yours?
Our profile name just came to me, probably because we can be playful at times, never gave it much thought.
I also suggested a profile name to some friends of ours who decided to join RHP and they still use it. I like to think that I am good at providing suitable profile names for people, much like the story of the old Indian chief:
The youngest son of a great Indian chief went to his father and asked "Ohfather, how did you choose the names for your three children?" The great chiefreplied "My son, when your older brother was born, the first sight I saw afterthe moment of his birth was a bear running through the woods; so I named himrunning-bear. The morning your sister was born, the first sight I saw was abeautiful star, so I named her morning-star. But why do you ask me such aquestion, two-dogs-fucking?"
Mine is really easy.
It is my nickname and the year of my birth.
Love your posts, wiccan. Keep up the great work.
And interesting how you came up with your name..actually interesting how everyone has come up with their name so far
Me... I joined under a another name ...it was a nic name given to me by the ex..it had to go....
I was ummingas to what to change it to...and my friend suggested using my burlesque name..which is Ms (all burlesque ladies are referred to as Miss/Ms) Velvet Blue - Velvet being my favorite material (and also my middle name offline ) and of course Blue being my fav color...............and it is my burlesque persona...sophisticated burlesque ...think Rita Hayworth glamor with a bit of Dita thrown in........................ you had to love the 40's.
is an uber sexual force of nature...and according to jsk6767,the name of his favourite bitch.
We can all be thankful he wasn't born two years later.
Well its like this, Felonious = wicked..Villanous..(an obsolete meaning...a bit like me lol).hands up who thought it was the other meaning, as in committing Felonies!
Fossil....just poking fun at my age.
So basically, just putting shit on myself....hehehe
I started here as focusliason which I got one drunken night with a friend creaing my profile by combining my place of employment and a club on the Gold Coast the I frequented at the time.
Then I left, buried her beside another friends profile from Tassie and enjoyed sometime on the outside for a while.
After 12 months away I was sitting on my Mothers couch when I got a text from a FWB who is on here asking me to check out a female profile...got Mother to log into her profile so I could check this other profile out. A few texts back and forth with my FWB and it was decided I should create another profile on here. Knowing me as she does, and knowing I wouldnt be able to stay away from the forums, old habits die hard lol, Mother suggested I incorporate 'focus' into my new profile name as inevitably I would sign off any forum posts with it (as was my habit as focusliason) so Lost_Focus came in from the cold. I initially just wanted focus but there is a couples profile on here with that name so had to think a little harder.
