Well we have pretty simple user names some of them out there are just crazy and you wonder how they even came up with them.

Yeah, I thought you would have been a little more creative. But, your name is nice so it's okay.

I'm just following the craze where usernames have to be anime-related :p And since my nickname starts with the letter p, I thought of adding chan, then it became piichan after watching Ranma 1/2 :D

Well, for me, it's cause I was always the beauty queen type. Pampered princess, posh facials and "just me time" kind of stuff. I spent way too much money over the years on pampering days and self care. I'd give anything to have back one tenth of that money now that I have a kid.

I chose my name, because it was the name that I had been using on many other things. I came up with it, because I was very interested in Harry Potter at the time and liked the sound of the name "elixir" from the potion, "elixir of life", but I thought that it had too strong a Harry Potter connection and I would look like a crazy fangirl, so I added the "ess" to make is more feminine like "prince" to "princess".

My username comes from the fact that when I joined a year ago I was just getting really obsessed with Grey's Anatomy. I still am, but it's not one of my usual screen names. But I'm happy with it I guess. It's weird to get used to seeing again since I've been absent from here for a long time.

I love everything Fafi so I had to take the name you call a person or doll who is Fafi. 79 is the year I was born. It didn't take me long to come up with this username. Plus, it's something that I would love to keep. If you want to know what fafi is...check it out at fafi.net!

Mine is my date of birth. I'll be 41 in October. In all honesty, I started using "TenTwo67" when I was in my 20s and it's somewhat less "cute" now to display my date of birth, but I still like it.

Well, my name is Helen. I have a very good online friend who has a habit of adding 'io' to her friends names. For example, 'Helenio', 'Annio' and 'Gillianio'. Years and years ago I wanted to make myself a new AIM screen name. I wanted something I would want to keep and not get tired of. I tried 'helenio' but to my surprise it was already taken, so I used a zero instead of a O. It worked, and 'heleni0' became my new screen name and it's stuck with me every since.

joliefille means pretty girl in French. My email username is tetue fille on yahoo and gmail. Then a friend made a comment about me being "tres jolie fille" which means very pretty girl. I kinda like the sound of it so I stuck to it. Hehe.

I picked this name as my AOL screen name years ago when I was still in high school. And I think it stuck with me. I don't remember how I came up with it, but I'm glad I did. Lots of people know my name online, lol. Everyone's like 'Hey Drowning!', like it's my real name, lol. But it's pretty cool, I guess.
