There are such an interesting variety of profile/avatar names on here. I am just wondering if anyone is willing to share how they came up with theirs. Just curious.
Since I make a variety of different things and my design style sometimes changes with my mood, I felt my line was like being in a cafe, with choices. Everything is handmade which makes it couture of a sort. I went back and forth between couture cafe and cafe couture, each of which would have a slightly different connotation. While discussing this with a young friend, I told her I wanted the name to pop and she suggested couture pop cafe!
John Lennon: "Mind Games" " Some kind of Druid Dude, lifting the veil, some call it magic to search for the Grail." Druid can't lift that veil unless he found it. Merging of many Gaelic legends.
my dog's nickname. His name is Bailey. Avatar is of my cat
Very interesting question with great answers. Now how I wish I had thought about my profile name a bit more to use on here.
My name was really kinda given to me. Back in college, someone suggested that I brought a kind of urbane chaos into life. The name stuck, and for many years I was called either urbane or chaos. I use it from time to time when I don't want to use my real name.
I have several names in my name... this is one of the shortened forms of one of my names... and my favorite.
hmm.... you caught that logic. Go figure. I'll leave it to your imagination....
ha ha I know you do.... my 100 should keep you entertained until next year!
I had a big hand in raising my two brothers and my sister from the age of eleven. As an adult I raised a family of my own now it is my turn -- hence raisingme!
Mine is my pen name. I used the porn star method to choose it.
First name = name of my first childhood pet.
Surname = name of the first street I lived on.
Bit risky - just Googled you. I can see you and your cat on street view.
Not really. Pet has been dead for over thirty years. Is even longer since I lived on that street.
As for street view, you must have the wrong Toby Hansen. My house is in the middle of a dairy property on a gated drive well away from the road
Wow, I didn't know there was a science to that!
In the universe, is there anything we KNOW, smaller or of less questionable matter than a "quark?"
Philosophically, I exist, in size and import, as a "quark."
The name "quark" had been taken.
"Qwark" was close enuf to convey the import of my being to all who try to understand this infinite and eternal universe.
Of course being an old "trekky" helped...:
Ironically I asked this question a few months ago in the Forum. Anyway, I'm known among my friends and family as one that does everything fast, move, talk, walk etc, ergo "fastfreta."
I am a mommy and I love to write! I find it relaxing and it fills my brain with ideas other than what to make for dinner!
It's something I've been using for a long time. Back in the 80's my favorite group was Enigma. I ran enigma through a synonym search and it came up with bewilder. Hence the birth of bewilderize.
Hey i am Katie Gregory, im 16, so passionate about doing something with this, just starting up on Hub Pages and wondered if you could advertise me or follow me? thankyou
Cool question Miss E!
I can't really say why. The name just came to my mind while I was signing up, or maybe before that.
Personal Computer Unix.
Although I do have an alternate explanation involving the Pcuni, a sadly extinct Australian marsupial. Apparently the last breeding pairs were thoughtlessly killed by American tourists because the poor Pcuni nests looked very much like bubble wrap.
I took the name to remind other Americans of the havoc we wreak across the world.
Well y'see the W stands for Wonderful, the A stands for Amazing, the Y stands for Young, the N stands for New, the E stands for Entrepreneur and the T stands for Tit!......Eh?
I am a mommy's girl and love my mommy very much! not wanting to use my real name i decide to use hers instead
Basically I have been a cheeky girl for as long as I can remember, and I was given the name by school friends. We all had nick names of "handles". Plus my name suits me, and it gets a reaction on Facebook too. It's in my website name (which I won't url, no fear). I wonder how many people's names have made them famous, if at all? (Just curious!)

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. Now, I'm curious to listen from fellow hubbers....

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 can change my old username (Butterfly67) to the actual name that I have on my hubs now (Jackie Grant)? I'm assuming not but thought I might as well ask.

Do you think that HubPages should require author names like Jane Smith or Joe Smith to write,In other words would HP be more legitimate if we all had to write under a first and last name like some other writing sites?
