The worse is you pick your name and it tells you it is taken already. I don't think no one uses their own name. Mine is my nickname and the question is how did you pick your name for your email and did you have to think a lot or the name just came to you. Why that name, is it cool. How did you pick your mylot name also, My favorite name is Hardworkingurl, I think she is great. If you get a chance to meet her don't miss out, she is great.

It was quite easy for me to pick the user name. "Green" is my favorite color. So, when I tried the name "greenline", it was acceptd and worked well. Since it is my favorite color, it is easy for me to remember too.

I use my kids names, dates of birth and nicknames for most things online. My email address starts with my eldest 2 children's names. I like to use different combinations relating to them for passwords, things that people couldn't guess unless they know me very well.

Very nice but your password should be different but I found something on the internet about passwords. Just take their name and move your hand 1 key to the right and type. You will come up with something no one will guess with like. your name marianne87 if you move to the right 1 key it would look like this ,stosmmrt98 - see what happens when you move to the right. Here is another example like john would be kpjm. Hope you got it.

I have faced this problem when I try and create an email account with only a single name - but a combination of my first and second names does give me options that I pick and choose, and if I add the middle name, then there are often more than 2 options for me to select. And if I want an incognito user name that does not point towards me during a search, then I have over a zillion options for me.

Hi Ekobernie. My husband picked the name of the email and the name on here. He said he is a freeman and that is how he came up with it.

I'll answer this in hopes that it won't be deleted, because there was a similar question a couple of days ago, and I got an email that my response was deleted because the post was deleted. I have several actually, and I name them depending on what I'm doing on the internet during that time. If it's my businss, it pertains to the name of my business, if it's earning, I pick a name that fits for that. If it's personal email, I have something like friends@ya.com or somethin similar to that. Have a good one!
