How Did You Come Up With Your User Name?

There are so many cute user names that members have and I was wondering how did you think of them? Mine is kittenclaus. It of course uses 2 of my favorite things, cats and Christmas. I thought of using it when one of my friends was over for Christmas dinner one year. We were talking about my love of Christmas and she just jokingly started calling me kittenclaus, lol. I remember thinking how well it described me and how cute it sounded so of course I had to use it. Is there a story behind your usernames? Too many times there are serious discussions and not enough fun, lets have some fun!

I've pretty much been using the same username everywhere I've been for at least the past 5 years I'd say. I've just grown so accustomed to having this username, I couldn't really imagine anything else. I'm not the biggest fan of Disney, like I used to be, granted I still enjoy it, but that is where my username comes from. DL is short for Disneyland, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) is my favorite Disney Princess, 1955 is the year that Disneyland opened. That's the story to my username in a nutshell.

[i]Hello kittenclaus, this is Commando Voldrox speaking! I have grenades and rifles and my team of four more special forces geared up in bullet proof vest and night vision goggles and much more and we need to fight the terrorists in a vicious battle. We have to start from our spawn site and before the terrorist reach the target site, we need to cover the area and secure it. We can't let the terrorists detonate the C4 explosive! It is our mission!! Second round: WE ARE THE TERRORISTS!! *LOL* [/i] Well ok ok, that was the game counter strike which i was a freak for. I was highly highly addicted to that game. I just cant say why i kept this name. I guess because i thought it sounded cool, but i don't know, lol! So there you have my gamer name. Voldrox.

My user name is a combination of my actual name and what I want to do. It also fits because I'm writing on this site every time I answer a question.

well, I usually use the same username for most everything, but myLot would not accept it on the basis of criteria. Sooo... Hmmm I had to think a bit. One of my favorite interests and hobbies is prospecting and gold mining. Hence, Miner49r. I thought it to be somewhat clever IMHO. Trying to wrangle a few pennies online here and there is much like spending a day on the river with a gold pan. You never know what you may find, where you will find it, or how much you end up with.

Do you really mine for gold?? How cool, have you ever found any worth much? That would be a good hobby

When the opportunity allows. I always seem to wind up living in the wrong part of the state to find any descent color. How much have I found? My largest find was a small heart shaped nugget I had made into ring.

That sounds like so much fun, I would love to have the chance to do that but I live in Tn and don't know anywhere around here.

When my sister had her baby I spent all my time hugging her and her baby, and talking a lot, it got to the point where my sis started calling me "the talking scarf" as my arms were always wrapped around her (I got really emotional having a baby neice!) The talking scarf nickname quite quickly became Auntie Scarf! And since Ive never been good at making profile names I decided to use it everywhere!

Is that also the name your neice calls you, if so that would be kinda cute.

Shes only one so not really speaking much yet, but since my sister and my parents call me auntie scarf, I think she probably will end up calling me it lol!

I picked my user name from my favourite things and I joined here before I had my girls otherwise I would have put them in my user name somehow although my cute little purple teddy bear makes me think of them. Also if you look closely their are 3 hearts. Each heart has a letter in it, and each letter is the first letter of my girls' names on the left of purple teddy and on the right is the first letter of my hubby's name ... Purple = Favourite colour Teddy Bear = Favourite thing!

Barehugs is my user name, and has been used for my computer programs for over 10 years. The story is; I am a beekeeper in Canada, and honeybees make honey which is the favorite food for the Black Bear. When a Mother Bear attacks a colony of honeybees she breaks it apart with her strong teeth and claws. She begins to eat the honey and the bees sting her, but she is not affected by their stings because of her thick coat of hair. But her young cubs cannot get close, because their hair is not thick enough to stave off the stings. The Mother Bear solves this problem by picking up a box of honey with her front claws, standing on her back legs like a human, and carrying the box away from the bees, so her cubs can eat. Thus,the "Barehugs" the honey and carry's it away to feed her cubs. How is that for an interesting user-name?

Hi kittenclaus, Mine is still my real name.. I didn't think of a username here in mylot because my aunt told me that i have to sign up mylot because it will help me to earn and to make new friends. So I hurriedly think of a username but unfortunately It didn't come up to something so preferred to use my real name instead. But I am thinking that if there's a way to change my username? Can you help me please.. Thanks!

I'm really not sure if you can change your name. Perhaps go to support and ask them or start a discussion asking this question.

Hiya kittenclaus, Too right, too many serious things going on as well to be bothered about all the time. lovinangelsinstead21 comes from when I kept hearing the Song "I´m lovin angels instead" and I took it from there it´s a bit long but People can shorten it if they want I really don´t mind. Oh the 21 comes from being my favourite number 21. That´s it actually no secret story or revelation behind it. I liked the name and I put 21 on the end of it and there you are lovinangelsinstead21 (Herald of Trumpets Please) tcha tcha okay just a bit of fun there. I like your story of how you got your username kittenclaus that is really original too. Would also like to say that I am not an angel it´s just a username that´s all. It could fit in with my personality a bit but not altogether. No wings fitted either

The first four letters of my username has something to do with my nickname and the numbers has something to do with my favorite character in disney experiment 626. lol Anyway, I think its a unique username. And I like it!

For me, moonchild came from my fave book - The Neverending Story by Michael Ende...This is the name Bastian gave the childlike empress to mske her well when she needed a new name & I have always loved it...the 1 is because there was already a moonchild on most sites & the au is because I'm an Aussie.

making up usernames is hard for me until i settled for the one i'm using now. first i'd say i love k-pop especially super junior. why i'm saying thin because SJ in 'sjhaeki' comes from its initials and haeki is a combination of 2 members of that band that i adore. if i explain further i'll give out fan girl vibes so i'll stop here. haha
