Something about Profile names

    webismineposted 8 years ago

    Hi all,

    I love internet, when I joined hubpages few months ago I wanted to pick a username that should be different and interesting. My profile name is nothing but a combination of 3 words, as you can understand it has atleast two different meanings. wink

    Now, I'm curious to listen from fellow hubbers. What does your profile name stand for? What does it mean? Share something or everything about your profile name smile

    Web Is Mine

      Mine is describing a dynasty of web wealth, a mecca of networking, helping others and putting a dent in the poverty strikken sub cultures called the rat race. My hubpages name stands for alot of things but mostly it is about bringing fun, wealth, and infrastructure to the web that brings others to frutation of their dreams....

      Oh and it's also kinda sorta....

      My name.

      The other screename I use on my other account is SamurWriter and it stands for Samurai Writer, a writing warrior who will stop at nothing to find success with my writing, and to bring many others along for the ride synergistically so we all help each other... its also...

      Just a cool name I came up with when I saw my silver samurai statue and imagined the guys sword as a pen...

      Web is mine:

      You inspired me with this thread, I had always thought about names and what they meant but never thought to "just ask" I'm going to add a page to my training site about devising a hubpages name/sudo name... kudos for your insight here... brilliant

      Would you like to build a hub based on your insight generated here? I'd love to link to it from my site, this could mean alot of traffic from hubbers in training so it would be best if it taught people something like how to choose a name based on your goals with hubpages, your passions, and what your hubs will inspire in people etc.. are you game? (if your not is anyone else?) all hubs created and linked to here will be linked back to in this page:

      http://www.howtobuildamoneymakinghubpag … t-name.php

      I hope you don't mind I gave you a mention and used your hubpages image to show you off (and a linkback to your profile and this thread) if that's not ok let me know I'll remove them. If you write a hub and link me to it in here I'll put it right under your profile link (top of the page).. I want to let hubauthors know also that if you participate in offering things like this, ideas I can use to help train new authors I will use this system to give you credit, and to give you primo linkjuice on the site.. web is me, your the first so far other than sweetiepie who's helping me on another plane..

    Mine is a take off my own name.  Anna is short for Annastasia.  Yes, like the wicked step sister in Cinderella, and like the Russian princess.  I never liked it, and have always gone by one shortened form of that name ever since.  Sometimes Anna, sometimes Stacey.

      I am a guy and both your names are wonderful names of romantic women of great beauty and fame to me. Annastasia also sounds like a beautiful flower. When I think of Marie I think of Anna Marie Von Franz the great psychologist, writer and friend of Carl Gustaf Yung.

    Rochelle Frankposted 8 years ago

    I have always enjoyed seeing interesting and creative user names--even have used some myself. But since I have published several print and internet articles plus a children's book in my own name, I thought it would be best to be totally frank and use my own name.

    HubPages has some very imaginative user names.

    My avatar is part of the cover art I created for a book of poetry, Sirens of Circumstance by J.S. Allen, that I published this last July!! It's already in its second printing!!

    Blessings always, Earth Angel!!

  23. Shadesbreath profile image89
    Shadesbreathposted 8 years ago

    I read a book called _Sanctuary_ when I was in high school.  It was a collection of fantasy short stories.  There was a thief character called Shadowspawn that was so amazing and well written that I wanted to create a character in homage to that one and Shadesbreath was what I devised.  I've used it as a gaming name since the early eighties and the character gets cameos in lots of stuff I write.  The use of it as an Internet persona was inspired by the screen names of Ender's brother and sister in Orson Scott Card's great novel _Ender's Game_.  I can only dream of that kind of power.  If I ever attain it, Keira Knightley will be sending me nude pictures in my email.

  34. hot dorkage profile image78
    hot dorkageposted 8 years ago

    Named after my geek blog.  I came to the realization that I am an incorrigible dork.  There are some superficial things about yourself that you can change and some things about yourself that if you changed them you wouldn't be true to yourself.  I can't NOT be a dork and still be myself, and trying to be someone else takes a lot of energy and you feel like you're lying all the time.  Lying is also not me.  So I have to use who I am,  much like Roseanne Barr capitalized on the fact that she is a fat chick.  Dorkage was a term I first heard from Scott Kveton when some journalist made the mistake of quoting Scott as saying MBytes when what Scott had said was MBits.  All the geeks jumped on it immediately:  Wow Scott,  do you really get 10 MBytes per second?    Scott said it was a typo, but the difference between MBytes and MBits was just DORKAGE  to most people.  (It made his network sound 8X faster than it really was!)    I went out and bought dorkage.net that day.  Hot because it is served up  fresh,  and also because a few years back I apparently got inducted into the the MILF club of Montana, thanks to some teenaged dancers who saw me at a band gig in makeup and a tight dress.....   a whole nother story.

  35. Kika Rose profile image83
    Kika Roseposted 8 years ago

    My name's kind of my real name. Kind of.

    Kika: This has an interestingly odd story about it. My name's actually Monika. I'd met a girl in Choir in 10th grade (high school) named Amanda Saxton. We hit it off pretty well. She was home-schooled, and I always found home-schooled kids interesting. One day, she ran into the room and yelled, "KIKA!" and literally knocked me over. I just stared at her for about ten minutes before she said, "What? What'd I do? Did I say something? Is there something in my teeth? Spit it out, woman!"
    I replied, "Amanda, my name's Monika."
    "... Well, I know that."
    "Well, you called me Kika. What the hell's a Kika?"
    "... ... ... I have no idea."
    Somehow, the name stuck, and EVERYONE started using it. To this day, I still don't get it. o_O

    Rose: Aha, it's my middle name. :-P I'm not a big fan of putting my last name on the 'net. Information security and all that, y'know. But I like making up names to use on the web. I was gonna go with Amile Willows, which is my penname on a couple of writing sites, but I opted for Kika Rose instead. Dunno why.

  38. MrsEmmaLee profile image60
    MrsEmmaLeeposted 8 years ago

    It's actually a three-way coincidence.  I've always loved the name Emily.  But it wasn't until my early 40s that I realized how coincidental the love of that name actually is.  (Okay folks, I wasn't using my brain for a long time!)

    I was very fortunate to know two of my great-grandmothers.  My father's grandmother's first name was Emma.  My mother's grandmother's last name was Lee.

    So, ta-dahhhhh....   on the net I'm proud to use a combination of their names which is also pronouced as the name I'd often wished I'd been given.  LOL ..

    Oh, and the Mrs?   I'm always proud to announce I'm married (to a wonderful man).

    Ananta65posted 8 years ago

    I've used may nicknames on the internet. This is just one of them. According to Chinese astrology I'm a Snake. And I've been working with that theme for quite some time now. Either in the form of my nickname, or in the form of a profile picture or both. Ananta comes from Ananta Sesha, one of the primal beings of Creation. The snake representing eternity or infinity, who carries the God Vishnu on its coils.
    "The foremost manifestation of Krishna is Sankarshana, who is known as Ananta. He is the origin of all incarnations within this material world. Previous to the appearance of Lord Krishna, this original Sankarshana will appear as Baladeva, just to please the Supreme Lord Krishna in His transcendental pastimes."
    1965 is the year this incarnation of Ananta was born smile

    My pen-name -"Cranston"- is the moniker of the beloved, scratchy, cartoon character (in case you couldn't tell - a cat) featured in my blogs.
    The character was created by my father in my early childhood and has since become an alter-ego of sorts-- a symbol and reminder of the humorous and lighter side of life, and is just a fun avatar.
