What's Behind Your EHell Screen Name?
« on: February 01, 2011, 08:51:15 PM »
I often wonder how my fellow EHellions come about their screen names - I'm sure there are some interesting stories. Some are simple, some confusing - I'd love to know (if you're willing to share).

I'll start. I am not QueenofAllThings due to an inflated ego (well - maybe sometimes) but because, when the 3 princes were little, this is what they called me when they wanted a special treat (that, or Queenof the Universe or Goddess of All). And it worked - most of the time  ;D

Mine is my initials, just slightly longer. (and I like bees).

I think I remember seeing a thread similar to this but it was ages ago...

Well, my first name was already registered as a username, so I just picked one that sounded like it.  Plus I get to use a crab as an avatar. :)

Mine is pretty much explains itself LOL.  I joined years ago I can no longer remember which board I was on when someone was talking about this one I think it was on Ivillage.  I didn't want to use the same name as I wanted to not worry about people or family knowing who I was.  And well I lurk on just about any board I go to so i knew I wouldn't post much but I do love reading it all.  So the name lurkergirl was born.  I usually can't use it on other sites as it is always taken now.

It is associated with a favorite anime character of mine, as well as being my sorority's flower.

And the unexpected bonus of being the name of a resistance movement during the Holocaust.

I had a parakeet named LeeLee, and I chose 88 because it's usually easier to register a user name for sites with numbers at the end of the name.

Mine is after my two kitties.

Mine's a reference to the tv show Castle.  The main character refers to the hell of a deep-fried twinkie when he's talking about his ex-wife.  It struck me funny  :)

Mine's from a series by David Weber.  The main character finds himself being followed about by a lizard who exhibits many of the qualities of a dog.  He decides to keep the lizard, and names it Dogzard (dog and lizard).  One of my favorite lines from that series is, "It was a dogzard's life, to be sure".  Just cracks me up.

I love ridiculously spicy food and silly wordplay.  ;D

Wasabi + What's up with you? = WasabiWithYou!

ETA: But I really don't like most sushi. Only vegetarian sushi, which I do like a great deal. However, strictly speaking, vegetarian sushi doesn't actually qualify as "sushi," right?

It does. Sushi is about the rice.

Nomi is my nickname and blue is my favourite colour. Ebay suggested it to me when picking a logon there and I use it everywhere. It makes me easy to find on other fourms, I've had people ask me if I'm the same Bluenomi from ehell on other forums I visit

Ah, thank you for the clarification! Perhaps I should consider changing my little tag line, in that case.  ;D
