    If your HubPages name is different from your real name, how did you come up with it? Example, My favorite classic rock band is ZZ Top so I came up with zzron.

      Ah, of course I didn't realise you used the ZZ from the band Ron. Cool!

      I got my name from Rory Gallagher, it was the title of one of his great rock tunes. Here's the man in action.

      "vox vocis" is the way that the Latin word for "voice" is commonly cited in dictionaries. I try to keep my writing informative and trustworthy so I came up with this name...and I adapted the avatar, too :-)

    Spacey Graceyposted 12 years ago

    I had a whole online career planned out for myself blogging about my crazy life after quittingmy career to be a stay at home mum. I spent ages thinking up an alternate name to use, and Spacey Gracey was born.

    Then after doing a bit of research I realized blogging was not the way to make money and affiliate marketing was so instead I used the name to sign up to HubPages.

    Still every time I look at the name it reminds me of how little I knew a about making money online when I started out.

      I can so relate! When I first started out blogging (about the craziness of motherhood) I was Flaky Jane. smile By the time I found HP I decided to use my real first name with Jane instead, but now that I know better, it has stuck... I like the name Spacey Gracey though. It's memorable!

    Extinct Soulposted 12 years ago

    I got my name from Maria Clara, a character from a book that was written by the Philippines national hero. She is a trademark of a true blooded Filipina. A quality of a woman that, for me, is already in its extinction because of the unstoppable growth of technology and influences from other countries.

    So I've decided to carry her as my second soul. smile

    brimancandyposted 12 years ago

    Well I combined a few things. First was my a nickname everyone calls me by, and that is "Bri".

    Next two would be that I am a "man' and I like "Candy"

    So I came up with Bri-man-candy.

    Sometimes I am also called Man candy, So that went in a little too.

    Sometimes it happens, sometimes life gives you this and you can do nothing about it. In year 2006 my life turned into this. There was no hurricane but it hit like one. I lost everything including my home. Well, almost everything. I still have my kids and my 2 cats with me and that means a lot. That's why I am Home Girl. I am looking for my home...

    Adding the blog to the end of the username... that is something that I only do now to be consistent with all of my account ID's. (In retrospect it's pretty dumb... but I like people knowing that I'm the same person!)
