for a while now I have been curious about how some folks arrived at their usernames, some are quite fascinating! I got mine from having a bushy mop of red hair and a last name of "Fox"..hence "Bushyfox". I'd like to hear how you arrived at yours?

We just had a post on this topic not too long ago. I, too, always find it interesting. It's great that you started this again, so we can hear some old ones and get some new ones, too.

I'm a huge fan of Anne Rice and mythology. I've heard many times the myth of Pandora's box, and when I created this name, which I use for many other online things, I had just finished reading Anne Rice's book, Pandora. 80 is just my birth year, which I had to add when I used this name the first time (I think for email), because apparently I wasn't the first to think of it.

TTFN, Diane

Mine comes from my all time favorite novel, Journey to the West (also known as Monkey). It's from China. The central character is Monkey and one of the book's themes is to "tame the monkey mind." Great fun, actually. Lots of adventures, slapstick comedy and philosophy, all jumbled together in one great tale.

Hi name is jack, but mom and grandma called me jackson, while growing up. My siblings opted for action jackson, and later shortened it to action. The 23........well since action is typically too short for most "user names" carrying only 6 characters, I borrowed from the phrase "lights, camera, action"........where they director says "all right, we're ready in 1, 2, 3, action". I just dropped the 1. Fun Welcome to the GOLD club

I produced and directed a theatre company called the Genius Waitress Society. We took our name from a Tom Robbins novel in which genius waitresses paid steep dues and picked one of their own to have a research project funded once a year. In my opinion, any hard-working wage-slaver with half a brain is a genius waitress.

Crocdd  (Level: 12.2 - Posts: 15)
Sun, 9th Oct '05 12:51 AM

Mine is my nickname and came from the movie Crocadile Dundee.My friends said I was always walkabout like him because I spent most of my time hitch-hiking back and forth across the country for no apparent reason other than just because I could, and could get myself out of any type of trouble I found myself in free and unscathed (especially with the police). The DD is my initials. It began as CrocadileDD then later shortened to CrocDD by my son before he could say the word crocadile.

Mon, 10th Oct '05 1:41 PM

I'm not very imaginative when it comes to making up usernames, so just stuck with the one my mom and dad gave me. It's unusual enough. Rarely find anyone else with that name, tho have heard of one or two through the years. Never met another Dwayla yet.

Vickie - even once I learned your real name I still call you "velcro" in my head when I see your name come up

My name is Susan and my best friend in high school dubbed me Suzer. My birthday is on the 22nd. Now I am a high school teacher and I accidentally shared my email address with my they all call me Ms Suzer!

Mine's one of dozens of random nicknames my sister & I have for each other. (She's 'Pafick" here)
I had first tried to enter other names that 'meant' something, but when they were all taken I went with one I knew wouldn't be. =)
