I'm taxlady on lots of sites. I do income taxes, so that's how I came up with it. I've been on the internet long enough that I have grabbed that user name before other people a lot of places. There are lots of taxlady123, etc. out there. If I sign up somewhere that already has a taxlady, I go by TaxDragon.

It came out of the air. Association of ideas. Real name is Henrietta (aka Henri)

On another site I took the name of a character in a comedy radio programme from before I was born. My father's joke.

And my father was responsible, indirectly, for another forum name elsewhere. He was very keen on fish and aquariums and used to call me after a water beetle because of my second Christian name which began with the same 2 letters

This topic comes up every once in awhile.

My name is Laurie Patricia and my married name is Beier. I have been called LP most of my life because my best friend in the early years was Lori Patricia and it was hard on our Moms and other friends. Mine became LP and she was just Lori. I now go by Laurie or LP, but think of myself more as LP because I have known it most of my life.

So hopefully that all makes up for the fact I have a really boring username and no funny story like Andy M.

You think yours is boring. Look at mine.

I have been using Somebunny for hmmmm, maybe 15 years. When we first got a home computer I was trying to familiarize myself with the Internet ( I had been using computers in my work, but not the Internet) I thought I would try out my internet providers user forum/chat, I didn't want to use my own name for a username so I thought "heck I will just be anybody.....alas it was already taken, oh well I will be nobody, uh that was also taken, I guess I wasn't as clever as I thought I was. Well then how about somebody? Geeze already in use, well cripes, how about Somebunny??? Success! It took what felt like hours but finally I was in. I've been Somebunny or Bunny for short ever since, I use it everywhere. Mostly because I am too lazy to spend time working thru names that are already in use ;)
It's not a clever story like Auntie Em's, but then again it isn't fiction :)

Being from Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, everyone has a name like mine. For some strange reason we all seem to have the same middle initial. I even have a couple of cousins that had their own local TV show for a while.

I've always liked the "Got Milk?" ad campaign, but I use garlic in my cooking much more than I do milk so when I signed up, I combined them. I didn't know whether the forum would allow spaces or non-alphanumeric characters in user names, so I left them out.

It also has a secondary benefit of letting people know you're not a vampire. :)

Mine is taken from the 80's show "Macgyver" because I fix things...and 1968 the year of my birth.
