This topic does come up now and then. It's interesting to learn about the folks we interact with here. In my case, "Hoot" is a nickname that is common amongst folks with the last name Gibson. It comes from the western movie star Hoot Gibson. He was very popular in the early days of movies. Seems like, somewhere along the way, many Gibson children are tagged with "Hoot" I have two cousins, two uncles, and my dad who at some point were tagged with "Hoot". It seemed like a good name to use on here.

My niece appeared in The Wizard of Oz... oh wait, that story's been taken...

I used to play an online trivia game and my handle was Canis, as in Lupus, Familiaris... so one day I was signing onto my first forum and Canis was taken, so I added the state I live in in front of it.

I took my initials JAB and the first 3 letters of the last name BUR and combined them for a take on jabber meaning to talk a lot. I use it for everything and will add some numbers to it occasionally.

Poetic for someone who also talks with her hands.

My real name is Lucia, that means "who is born in the light". Fos is the ancient greek word for "light" (I don't know what is the word in modern greek) and '87 is my born's year. I choose it several years ago, when I had just began studing ancient greek.

Because it is who I am and I couldn't think of anything cute or catchy.
