I use a user name because, trust me, my name is once heard and never forgotten....I usually never need to use my surname, although I married someone with a surname that makes me very alliterative, lol, and I have never come across anybody with the same name as me. I sound like a cartoon character or burlesque artiste. I love having an individual name but it does create a security risk, and so I use a friendly "namey" user name, that is not too weird (thanks to those alliterative "l"s) in real life, although if I email people I "meet" on the internet I usually give my real name, because I think its polite....I give it on the phone and in letters, so if you are emailing people I feel a little more like using my "real name".

Just to make it more complicated, my "real" name is a corruption of my "birth certifcate" name and that only gets used by my parents and grandparents...my sister gave me my shorter "real" name, which I am known by. Most people in my family have a nickname which is as important, or more so, than the name on their birth cert!

When I was born the doctor came in and said that I was not going to live and what did my mother want to name me because he was going to baptize me, she said the first thing she thought of was the Blessed Mother, so she said Mary. Well as you can see I didn't die. Then she took me to a church and had the priest baptize me again and on the baptismal certificate it says JoAnna. But on my birth certificate it's JoAnn ( that is what they called me ). So I don't know what name Saint Peter has in the good book. But I guess I will answer to all three. Just so I get in those Pearly Gates.

(I pm'd you, qsis)
I like our usernames way more than our regular ones. Makes us each unique, I think.

Otherwise we'd have names like "Tim", "The other Tim", "Tim with blue font", "The nice Tim" and "The latest Tim"

(woulda used "tom", but bucky got all the good names)

Or Tiny Tim.

I like the user names also. It has a touch of the member's personality in them.

Wasabi~ hot and spicy or maybe just green.

I've known you all this time and didn't know your real name is Tim! You can be "Hospitality Queen Tim!"

Barbara

P.S. James said to guess what his full name is. (No it doesn't involve Tim! Look to the Bible for his first and middle names. Obviously one of them is James!)
