Where Does Your Name Come From...what does it mean???
« on: August 06, 2012, 08:56:02 AM »
I have used the screen name Hollanda for years now. I have no idea where it came from! Anyway, I just found out that it is actually a type of extinct bird from the Cretacious era. Apparently, it's long legs meant it was possibly a ground bird, a bit like a Roadrunner.

Do you know where your screen name came from and what it means?
Knowledge is knowing tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Just as a heads up, there is already a thread on this running in the Coffee Break board - it's been really fun finding out about people's names.

I was going to suggest we already had a long running thread on this but Elessarion beat me to it.


But I do have a question, how do you not know how you came up with your own screen name? Did someone assign it to you in another forum or something?
