What is the meaning behind your user name?
Some people ask me about mine, MrsMamaCow. Mrs is because I'm married. Mama Cow because I have a pet pot belly pig and when she was a baby she used to sleep in the house. When she got too big for this, we made her an area outside but thought she'd be lonely so we gave her a large stuffed cow and told her it was her Mama Cow.
Mine is easy, I just shortened my real last name a LOT. It is a German mess of confusion and no one can pronounce or spell it.
"Fat Freddy's Cat" is a character in my favorite comic book series, "The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers." I've been using it as an online alias on various message boards & forums for years 'n' years so when I joined Hubpages I merely continued the tradition.
My user name is most of my real name. I thought about making a different user ID, but I want to use Hub Pages as a resume of sorts.
I intended for mine to be tiger82. That was based on the tiger being the mascot of my alma mater and 82 being the year I graduated. Teyeger is just a variation of tiger so I am teyeger82.
Duffy is (was) my choclolate lab whom I adored. He was my constant companion and best buddy. So duffsmom is all about him. He died almost a year ago at age 13. I now have another choc. lab, Tully but I can't go through changing my name all over the place so I will stick with duffsmom.
Mine is the penname I write fiction and poetry under. Kathleen is my middle name and Cochran is an homage to my paternal grandmother who practically lost her grandchildren when her son/my father divorced my mother.
I didn't realize until recently the effort she made to keep up with the three of us from six states away back when all you could do was write letters. She wrote her ex-daughter-in-law every week to keep in touch with us.
It wasn't until I found myself in much the same situation with my two grandchildren that I realized the effort she had made - for me.
Well...I guess it's because I'm fascinated with dark things and seemingly depressive topics, but I don't think I'm myself a very dark person. I enjoy writing, reading, and watching grim things, plus I've got a warped sense of humor.
The reaper is a tattoo on my shoulder.
JCJEE came from the first letters of our names -- my husband, my name, and our kids.
VERY cute What are your kids' names? I love hearing what people name their children. It's so fascinating to me! My son is Kaleb Jade. (I used a K because I didn't want people to call him CJ. I knew a CJ growing up and I was not fond of him. lol).
My kids' nicknames are Joma, Emann, and Eiya. They all have RJ for the initials of their first names, where we based their nicknames. Joma's first name is a combination of my dad's and father-in-laws names.
How beautiful! I just knew they were going to be good, that's why I asked! lol.

I find it quite intriguing and often wonder how a user name is chosen...some of the names are quite easy to guess others I bet have most likely funny little anecdotes to go with the choice...My user name is really very ordinary Zsuzsy being a Hungarian form of Suzanne and the Bee well, my teenage...

Actually it is my name, but now I'm hoping that song is stuck in your head. Uh... HP's changed my name on my profile page. Kinda weird. Im not sure how it happened or why, but the name on my account is "Sed-me" and in that little fill-in-the-blank-real-name-spot, I had my real name which...

Is there any way I would be able to change it?

I didn't know that what I entered for my user name to log in would be my user name that all my stuff is posted with. Does anyone know how to change a user name? ThanksPastor Verdin
