It's the only name I can remember consistently, so I use it. Occasionally paranoia hits when I realize my real name is out there. But, really, if I used different "handles" for everything I do, they'd have to be on a list taped to the desk next to the computer. Now THAT's real secure!

CWS represents the initials of my business name; the 4322 represents the last 4 digits of my business phone #. I use this user name for various accounts, so I always remember it and the associated password. Nothing creative, just practical--the fewer user names and passwords I need to memorize, the better.

What a beautiful story cj! I always love hearing about your grandchildren!

Margi, my user name in most places is Barbarian57. Barbarian because Barbara means "mysterious stranger from a faraway land" and it comes from the word barbarian. The 57 is for the year I was born. Here at DC I decided to just use my name and last initial because I didn't want to keep answering whether I was a man or a woman! I get some very, shall we say "interesting" emails because of my email name (which also begins with Barbarian), since many spam senders assume I am a man. A lonely man.

In addition to offering to find me hot sexy women, they also offer to enlarge my "manhood."
