Why did you choose your moniker (name you write under)?

    fastfretaposted 6 years ago

    I use fastfreta because I do everything fast, talk, walk etc.  My friend and former business partner gave me that name.  When we went into business together we were looking for a name and she suggested Fastfreta's Delivery Service.  I, however didn't like that entirely and changed it to Freta's Fast Delivery and Errand Service.  Now, however I've come to embrace the name and live by it.  What's your story?

      It is my email address.
      my boss at todaysrecipepro.com chose it for me when she signed me up in here.
      I use my last name in my closing now.
      people who actually talk to me via e-mail on occasion know my other names.

    I use fishtiger because it's near and dear to my heart. I am a woman who loves to fish and ice fish and when I was 1 my father started to call me tiger. He called me tiger till the day he passed away. He was my best friend. I wanted tigerfish but couldn't get it so I turned it around. I have used this name for over 10 years on many sites. I do this to honor my dad.

    Hi, my real name is Melanie Loveridge, but I am sick to death of calling myself Mel. everytime someone calls me it sounds like a cat meowing! melll mellll!!!! so now I call myself Nell and Rose was my Grans name. Much better. I think we should all be able to choose our own names, don't you? cheers

    My screen name is my attitude, whether it be reality, work and/or boredom into play, irreverence, or plain old tomfoolery.

    My sister and I are only 10 months apart and we share so many things, so my moniker was inspired by her.

    fishtiger - that's sweet smile

    I live in Wyandotte and I use the city e-mail account:

    get it? WyanDOTTE? I love this quirky place.

    Jennifer is "American" for Guinevere, as my Scottish grandparents explained. But I'm a Jen, not a Gwen.
    So, when I'm working from home, I use wyanjen.

      Your real name isn't Denno? Oh.
      And here I've been thinking 66 is the Number of the Sheep Beast.

      Dude, I was way off.

      Now I'm wondering what secret meaning "Bill Manning" has. I mean, he claims he's an honest guy, but...
      j/k Bill.

    I picked my real name because I try to be honest and professional. I have nothing to hide and use my own face on my profile too.

  18. brimancandy profile image83
    brimancandyposted 6 years ago

    I use brimancandy at a couple other sites. But, I also belong to several forums using a different name. I began to feel that name didn't fit me anymore, so I put a bunch of stuff together to create the name I am using now.

    bri-short for my name "Brian"
    man-which is obvious
    Candy- because I happen to like candy.

    I have also been told that I am a nice piece of mancandy by various people. (Which I find halarious!)So I just put it all together in one word. I kind of like it.


    My other identities included boring things like various years
    2000, 2007 and 1965. Or, words like "Stud" and "Whitey boy"
    Got bored with those pretty quick.

    I joined when HP was appr.close to 1 year old, I did not have any idea what my name could be or should have been, there were not many of us back then so I chose my married last name. Now I know how boring it is especially after I have seen some hilarious ones! lololo big_smile

  22. salt profile image65
    saltposted 6 years ago

    I love water. Salt is short for salt water. I also use Saltwater mermaid or bluesalt, or even bluemermaid on other sites.

    I swim most days and love finding new beaches. Where we live now is in a Bay and we dont have surf beaches as such, although we've had a few waves lately.

    There are fantastic surf beaches within an hour or 2 from here that we go to at least once a fortnight and I am looking forward to travelling more and finding great spots.

    I have been really lucky to always live not far from the ocean and I used to do environmental campaigning as well, so the sea is very close to my soul.
