amaranth = a song by my favourite band, Nightwish. It's the name of a little red flower.

Mine is one I've used in online dating profiles. I wanted something with good contrasting elements to it. I used variations of "Adventurous Spirit" for a while. Now I have ClassyCaveman and one other similar one that I use but I don't want it to get stolen so I'm not willing to share it here!

I hate usernames with '_69' or something similar on the end. ... With one notable exception: My best friend has alphaone69 which is friggin awesome.

Well, my first name is Dearsey, but most people call me Dee, except for my husband and boyfriend who both call me DD. With the two of them, my husband's girlfriend, a five-year-old, and a 23-day-old, there are suddenly a LOT of people in my life, and sometimes I feel like a bit of a ringleader-- hence: DD and Company.

Mine originated as my handle on a bisexuality forum, and came to be my handle on pretty much every alternative lifestyle forum I join. It was supposed to come from the Esperanto, "kordindino" which means "one who is worthy of a woman's heart" but I made a typo when I was signing up. My friends on the boards took to calling me Kori, so the typo stuck.

I know someone who's real "Given" name is Otter.

Mine is a little play on words- like "Your slip is showing" and it has a nice little acronym that I'll keep to myself for now. . . oh and the beginning of "Slip-pery when wet" one of my fav albums!

Default Why do you use the online name that you use?

I love the answers. Very creative.

I had a choice of using the one from a Pagan site I frequent or the one from the on-line dating service. I chose the latter where I found a few friends who are poly & that's where I found my present lovers. Lady is in connection to the Goddess & Monterey is a place I know well.

Default Mr Rusty

Bit silly and not at all poetic, this.
It goes back to when we first set up a computer network in the office. We were a bit bored by the normal computer names so decided to theme them. I guess most people used Star Trek ship names - no? Anyway we went for Anglo/French kids programme 'Magic Roundabout' names, and partly because I'm a mechanical engineer by trade and I was the manager of that group, I got Mr Rusty, who seems to organise all the other MR characters in a vague and inconsistent sort of way. Oh! perhaps they were commenting on my management style too. Anyway I quite liked it and still use it occasionally although most of my net presence is in my own name.

Time for bed! boing g g g g g
