How do you select your nickname or username while registering on sites or forums like mylot? Is it a name you like or is it according to your personality or it is of your loved one or you just give a name that comes to your mind?

for me, it is the name that i like. actually rhane was one of my favorite names that's why i choose that name to be my username here and into some other sites

I used to use a nick name but not so much anymore. I use my name whenever possible. When you start making waves in the internet ocean as I occasionally do, your handle is your brand and it doesn't help to be known by a dozen different names.

I guess my user ID says it all. I was a goth back in the late 70's and I still am today, just a lot older :-)

Hi there Arundhti1! I usually use nanayangel in the forums that I am joining. Nanay is a Tagalog word which means "mother" and that's what my son calls me. Angel is my real nickname. That's short for Angelica.

I'll generally use the same nickname for every site or whatever i sign up for. amymelissa is my first & middle name. I'll never use my surname online as that's just silly. Plus, amymelissa is what I also use as my pen name.

I have no idea how it came to me. Maybe I was thinking of those Ricola cough-drops (remember them?) and I thought Marcola rhymes with it, so why not? I could've done better. I've got a lot of nicknames I gave myself.

Mine's pretty simple as well. Beki because it's my name and 710 because I was born on the 7th October. I use this username on most forums, normally because I can remember it and it's not normally taken by anyone else!

I pick something that sounds girly since I'm a woman, the I would add up numbers after a nickname. For mylot, I just put NCgirl, because I'm from NC. I really can't think of anything.

I use the same one for almost everything. I'm a reinactor. Uath the 13th was my birthday on the old Gealic callendar.
