Soooo many cool names for cool hubbers. Feline Prophet, Darkside, Sufidreamer, Countrywomen, Spryte, Shibashakes, oh yes, and let's not forget (how could we) Goldentoad and Pest! It's a really interesting question. Why do some hubbers choose screen names while others use their real names. And then there's the avatars! What a creative bunch!!!
Let me throw my own hat, or name--curioZities--into the ring here!
A few years ago, Yahoo had message boards for all of their news stories and people would get into political fights all the time (almost like what we see here on some threads, only far worse). While there, I ran across a screen name that wasn't the coolest, but it sure as hell was the funniest screen name I've ever seen. it was "abe_vigoda_sniffed_my_crotch." True story!
When I first came to hub pages - I was impressed with the originality of all the names I found. It took me a couple of days to sign up because I want to find a name worthy to be seen with the likes of Ralwus, Ixxy, Ripplemaker, Shibashake, Feline Prophet, Goldentoad and the list is evergrowing
I was thinking about that when I saw your post a page back, Nanny. Jumped on a Toad? ;D
I think the name 'Ralwus' is pretty witty.
I wasn't very familiar with Hubpages when I made my name (I'm still learning, actually). Now that I've been browsing Hubpages more since I first signed up and looking at the forums, I'm slightly ashamed of mine, haha. It's not a real name, it's just sort of a name I came up using my mother's side of the family.
I have to say my list of coolest screen names is also pretty long. I like ... Ralwus, CennyWenny, Mark Knowles, Haunty, RooBee (the cutest!), Benjimester, and BadCo, to name a few.
Stop by my profile and check it out - then you'll see... But no telling Ralwus - he says he's going to cheat - no cheating allowed - but feel free to keep guessing - just send me direct mail so we don't spoil it for others.
Me, mine cause I like ravens and most birds and Stephen King has a wicked sense of humor. I even visited his house and that fence with the wrought iron dragons is cool. One of his neighbors almost took a picture of me.
Do you like Niagara Falls, Native American Businessmen, and Lady GaGa? Want to see your friend Ripplemaker broadcast the news all about them?? Then you might like this weekly showcase Hub for new writers, our weekly...
