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

Mine is Redpepper and the story behind it is that I was having an emotional LDR with a man who is also a redhead. He used another veggie for his on line name and he suggested that I use redpepper for my name on Fet life, as I was starting an account. I didn't end up using that but decided to here.

I wish now that I hadn't used the name I did on Fet life as it is the only one of it's kind out there and at least redpepper is harder to google... you get a lot of red pepper recipes.... fine with me!

Anyway, I would change everything to this name if I could as it suits me somehow, or have I become someone because of it.... don't know.

It's funny because my nicknames in real life are far more soft and squishy.... kinda lovey and endearing. What does that say??? I'm a hard ass redhead when redpepper and not so much in real life? HA, you'll have to guess on that one... Mono would know. Probably a little of both..

If I had to pick a name for Mono that would suit him in real life it would be "schooner" as it's his fighting name. Or maybe "the littlest Hobo" as he saw himself like that at one point... or "sherpa" as he tends to carry all the stuff while the core primary family walks ahead (his choice I have to add!).

I wonder what he would pick for me?

My husband would be "mushroom" as he is a mushroom geek... always researching, picking, growing, getting together with a local mycological society... or maybe "fuzzy" as he was called that in high school due to his ultra curly blond hair.

Anyway, would love to here others?

Years and years ago, back when the internet was a baby... I first got online.

At the time I was the only female construction inspector in my region and when I needed an online name, ConstructionLady seemed to fit the bill.
That was too long to type all the time tho so I became constlady.
Have been ever since, though for a time I used a different name on dating sites, since I'm the only constlady I ever found so far.

Let's see....

She's "Bexy" and he's "Ben".

Simple as that.

(Oddly enough, we've met a bunch of others with those names since we picked it... Who'da thunk that there were that many Bexy's and Ben's in the world?)

I just wanted something with the word poly in it and was feeling a little chubby the day I signed up.
My heart is too big to fit into one person.

I've had the same ID for nearly 10 yrs, and I use it everywhere. At it's conception, it as because I held a flame for a fox I met in 1988. over time, it has evolved to mean many things.

I usually use the name Incursus. I spotted it whilst flicking through a Latin dictionary once and I was immediately taken with the sound of the word. Whilst I then read that it meant 'attack', 'assault', or 'onslaught' didn't matter to me by then. I was already in love with the sound of the word.

However, when creating a username for here I didn't think that something that meant attack or assault seemed appropriate - at least it didn't sit well in my head for somewhere where people are being so emotionally open - so I decided to go with another Latinised name and went with Argent, from the latin argentum meaning silver.

Again, no particular reason, I just liked the sound of the word. :-)

Mine's brand new for this forum, but I think I'll keep some variant of it. I've been shedding a lot of my past lately, old pain, old futures, old ideas and somehow, old screen names. I came up with rubyfish really late one night and still am not quite sure where it came from or how much I like it.

Ruby is my birth stone and I really identify with that, which is odd, as I'm like the least girly girl I know. Fish is a misspelled chunk of my last name.

I keep telling my husband he should join and pick a screen name that matches mine because I think it's really cute when couples do that. Maybe rubysboy or something like that. Or playing off his name and birthstone ...
