When you sign up to a new website do you take your time to think of somthing fun and meaningful to you? or do you just type in whatever comes to mined? I personally like to think of name combination that mean somthing to me, or names that are just plane fun. because user names are kind of like a calling card that people use to identify you online, so I like to put a little thought into it. What about ya'll? do you think before posting a user name when signing up to a new site?

i don't really have to think hard about them since i have my single username for all the sites that i joined. i just differ the passwords to avoid being hacked. i got my username from a biology word that means mobile and active. that reflects my personality too.

I come up with new user names all the time. Usually they mean something to me, but sometimes I go the other way and just invent something totally unique. It gives each site its own character for me, and I think it also helps with security.

It depends on the site. If it's for short term visits, I don't really care about my user name so I just put my first name and middle name initial, which is usually never taken. For long term, I take the time to think up a username because other people will see me as a fun loving person, which I really am.

I usually like taking usernames from greek mythology. I don't know why, but I just find the greek names very elegant. However, I make sure that I use one name for signing up for a new site. This allows me to remember the username better.

Hi, apples99. Great discussion! Yes, I do love to use many different and unique usernames at other websites. I can think of so many pretty ones that I love to see. It really is helpful to create new and unique names.
