    Default What's in a name...

    I have a few names, three.
    I know which name goes where but now that GS is my 'sweet spot', , it can be confusing.

    My formal name is Rachel. That's for the serious places, like newsletters and such. (that's the name I registered here). Then I have Ricki. That's the name I go by daily, for more than thirty years. On FB it's Ricki. Twitter too and a few more places.
    THEN I have my web nick, littledino. That's a story on it's own..........

    Since I have made GS my place I have decided to tell about it because I am starting to feel at home here and I also want to make a siggy with my name Ricki. If I wouldn't have explained, no on would know where the name Ricki popped up from . Besides, where I feel at home I'm used to the name Ricki.

    I didn't realize I would ever have the know-how to really participate in a forum so this is a little embarrassing surprise to me. Is there is any possibility of changing my forum name from littledino to Ricki now that I have told my 'name' story?

    okay kinda silly.......blush blush.........
    My son was with a computer before me and his nick is bigdino. So when I got my first computer, he helped me hook up and when we got to picking a nick for me, littledino was so obvious. And that's how I'm littledino for eight years now!
    .......as if two names weren't enough......

    You are all hooked up Ricki!! No more littledino here! lol Although that is funny, because it is similar to how I gt my missdamsel name. When hubby started on the internet (about a millkion years ago) he was Paladin, so when he hooked me up I became his missdamsel.

    Oh this is great, thanks Missi! NOW I'm at home with my name

    Thus the title, "What's in a name". I'm sure there are quite amusing stories about nicks and names!

    Well mine isn't amusing but I'll bore you with it anywho, . It started more than 10 years ago when I was setting up my AOL account and needed a user name. I wanted guesswho, but it was already taken, so I then I tried "geswho", and that was also taken, so I just added my age at the time in there. That way I am always 40 geswho40. Thinking back I should have been geswho30 so I could always be 30...oh well, so there you have it. Not as cute and interesting as yours! Great thread though, I like hearing how people came up with their user names

    Maybe it should have been geswho20, that way you'd be 'young' forever! And it's not at all boring A cute story that came from the frustration that most names are taken, so this is an amusing subject!

    My username is because my husband and I met and fell in love because of Star Wars. So, we are Star Wars Fans. Pretty self explanatory! I always like hearing the stories behind usernames.
