Hey myLotters, I was just wondering how you came up with your username? Some are original, some boring, and others obvious. Mine falls into the last category. First, my name is Mike, and my wife’s is Pen. Add to that, I write a bit, and mipen was born way back in 2002. The 2006 had to be added, when I started using hotmail. Let’s hear from you!

My username came from the fact that I resemble the wolf in many ways, I am alike the wolf because I am nocturnal, I am wary of strangers, yes I am hairy too, I have great eyesight and I like to hunt alone and I am pretty wild in more ways than one. I would like to come back as a wolf in my next life. Being able to roam the land at will and have no predators. The number resembles my age or my age at the time that I signed up to Mylot, trouble is I didn't think it through, but I couldn't have wolfie for some reason so I chose 34. Now I am 38 LOL but I cannot change it to wolfie38.

But in the movies sometimes man is a predator of the wolf LOL! And in a fight I'd think the wolf would win against a man, provided the man wasn't armed.

hi mipen2006.. supposed to be.. my real name is CaneLyn.. but my parents has changed their mind and changes it into "Vella Lyn" so when I sign up in here I decided to use "Canielynne" as my user name.. I juz added an "I" before the "e" and put "ne" in the beginning.. so it would be pronounced as "Canie" rather than "Cane" I juz love this name..

Not much can be said about mine! My name is Paula and the numbers are a very important date in my life. I could have come up with something more original I suppose but it is too late now and I don’t mind my user name too much anyway. I like how you created yours, it’s great!

Hey paula, do the numbers represent your birth? Just guessing! At least, it's easy to remember.

Hi ybong, yeah, I can see a similrity. Any reason your sister put the 'y' in front of your name?

I used to belong to this "minotaur" house in my school. So I adopted that name. 87 is the year I'm born. I think the username is quite original. Didn't see other people using this username anywhere except myself.

Hi minotaur, that is original. Incidently, does, minotaur have an English meaning?

well, my username is in actuality, ANYWAYS. i just messed the spelling up for fun. it started in class when we were pretending to be chatting online but we were just passing around papers and scribbling somethings... kinda like a chatroom. i always say "anyways" in my statements then.. there... it was around 2006 that enieweiz was born.

Hi enieweiz, using phoenitic sounds, I think is fun. One of Australia's best known rock groups used this very successfully. Maybe you can guess their name?

dear mike, a very good friend who introduced me to mylot was my inspiration in the birth of my username. he fed me with all information on about how to go about the site hence i said i will dedicate my username to him. i copied his username but since he is a male, i changed mine to the female gender hence, tigeraunt was born. ann
