As I read hubs, I am always curious and fascinated by hubber's names, nicknames, and overall identities. For example, my hubname is Sarahredhead, because my name is Sarah and I am a natural redhead. While this may seem obvious to the point of kitschy, I am itching to know from whence some of these other monikers came. So, fellow hubbers, I implore you to pause for just a moment. If it pleases you, share your hubname and its history, inspiration or explanation. This is a voluntary effort, so those of you who prefer to stay shrouded in mystery - that is fine too. I know I cannot be the only hubber who has wondered about such things!
My name is Brandon Lobo and therefore it's lobobrandon as in many places brandonlobo is taken already so I stick with lobobrandon
I have a little cockatiel bird named Hyphen. The story of his name is in my Hub titled How Princess Hyphenbird Got Her Name. He has been a beloved friend for almost 20 years now. The name is a tribute to him and the Hyphen part is relative to writing. So there came Hyphenbird.
My entire first name is Carole Anne. The space is part of my first name. In my first semester of college, some of my classmates started calling me Carole - which I hated. Then they called me Anne - which I also hated. I don't have anything against those names in general, but they're not MY name.
Still, a classmate said my name was way too long so I agreed that the two names could be combined. This led to Caranne, which looked way too weird so it was respelled into Caren. Nobody calls me that anymore, but I still use it online.
The rising portion has to do with my fascination for the land of the rising sun. I love me some 日本.
According to the Urban Dictionary....
It's probably best that I don't participate in this!
Nybride710.... I got married in New York in July 2010. In retrospect, I wish I would have used my real name, but I always include it on hubs.
My hubname is MoiraCrochets because my name is Moira and most of my hubs are about crochet.
I firmly believe that life is a journey...from here to there and everywhere in between. When I became a hubber, I was living happily in Chicago, Illinois. I was born in Detroit and believe that my city of origin is a wonderful and amazing place. So, at the time my journey had taken me from Detroit (Motown) to Chicago (Chitown), with a few stops in between.
Stump is so much better than the nickname I had growing up.Here in the south they tend to refer to fathers and sons with the same first name as big and little so and so. You can guess how humiliating it was having the name Richard. Yep pops was big Dick and I was stuck being little dick. I will say that this wasn't a real problem until puberty hit.
Mine is pretty simple, I write about my reality and you read it through bytes
My first name is Holle, and my last name is Abee. h + abee = habee.
I didn't give my profile name a lot of thought, as I was just excited to start writing hubs. I wanted to find out if I could earn money writing. So when Rosie was not available, I just added 2010 to it as it was in November 2010 that I joined Hubpages.
I started writing online on a Tuesday but when I write or read stories I like them to have a clever little twist so I became 2uesday, but there are other reasons to.
I aquired this name from a friend in a poker game room I used to play at. My membership had run out and she loaned me one of her avatars so I could continue playing. It's actually the name of a street near where she lives outside London UK. I kept the name when I joined hub pages, because, quite honestly, I couldn't think of anything else at the time. I also have another avatar here 'missingyou' and I've explained that name in my profile. Thanks for asking!
The story behind my hubname is quite strange, My name is Callum but when I was a child I always got tonsilitus and so was prescribed Calpol by the doctors which is a painkiller for kids..
Anyways my mum nicknamed me "Callum The Calpol Kid" and so Calpol stuck and when I began writing here on hubpages I just turned 25 so that is the story of how I became Calpol25.....
Having a home is very important to me. I am still looking for it that's why I am Home Girl. I NEED my home damn it! and not in Toronto,please.
May be this one would do?
No, I think this one is occupied already by Queen's family.
This one I am sure is free but my cats, probably, won't like it - too drafty.
Might have problems with Internet connection too...
Sure, as long as you come with your own tea bags. When you live in a palace you have to be frugal, you know .
I created an anagram of my first, middle, and last names into a brand new set and my new first and last name is Rafini Loeshun.
Hi rafini, I am delighted to see you again here..
I have a horse when I was growing up it is a a black pretty horse...It was my companion growing up....
I thought it was a reference to yourself because one of your old profile pictures showed you were both dark and pretty.
I explained mine on my profile page. Of course I lied, but what else would you expect from a Liberal?
no about what you said about the liberals, they are not liars
I just smiled how you just said it...you're witty
I wish we had a separate section for the etymology of our profile names. Sadly, I had started under my real name and the Internet monsters attacked and I had to start all over. Since my name was linked to porn, I choose a grandmotherly name and decided to take my real grandmother's name - Goldie. Great forum post - thank you for sharing.
It all started when I was born...otherwise I mostly use my initials on other sites....but if I used LEG.....would make some people feel insecure or inadequate, on the other hand if I used GEL...others would get the wrong idea, therefore out of desperation I stuck with using my full name.....
Mine is a euphemism that my wife and I use for a particular intimate activity. I couldn't think of anything else when I signed up!!
My first name is Maddie and my last name is Ruud. Shocker, I know.
(Actually, my first name is Madeleine, but I don't like how Americans pronounce it.)
Greenhousewife is something that I aim to be. It began before I was officially a wife but I have strived to be as eco-friendly in my way of living as possible.
Well it all started when I was in 5th grade and started playing a little game called Runescape! ;] any ways as I remember it my dad had just told me what pig latin was so I was OBSESED with thinking of things in pig latin.
Any ways I named my charactor my name (Trevor) in piglatin, revortay. Now really it was revortay1 but for the life of me I can't remember where the 1 came from!
Well from there on every single profile I have online is revortay1! Legitimately if you see revortay1 anywhere on the web or on xbox live or anything it's a 99.9 percent chance of being me!
Well, Cardia is a smashup of my first and middle names: Carla and Diandra. Not a very exciting background story, but it was pretty simple, and the first thing I thought of to call my Hubpages account
Disturbia is that feeling of dread one gets when they begin to realize something or someone they thought was OK or safe really isn't. That seems to be the story of my journey through this life. I have a tendency towards impulsivity and often find myself with people (like an abusive ex-husband) or in situations that might be considered less than desirable. Also, I just really like the song by Rihanna.
I had just given birth to my 4th child (Sara) and needed a username for ebay. The username has stuck with me for years because it was easy and reminded me of my sweet girl who is now almost 11!
My is the first three letters of my first name, Melvin, and the first three letters of my last name, Porter, combined.
The avatar with the exception of the clothes kind of explains it all. We now have modern equiptment but the end result is the same. Throw in an after tax child support garnish by NY state of 33% not counting add ons and you can get the picture.
Arlene V. Poma is my legal name. I threw in the "V" because my dad got to name all three of his kids, and my mom got a raw deal. We all share her maiden name as our middle name, and it's only seen on certificates. I was not named after Arlene Dahl or Arlene Francis. I was named after a foster child and the daughter of family friends. I never met her, but I was told she was a charmer (like me). Poma is Italian, but my folks are from the Philippines. I figure Magellan let one of his men loose in the barrio way back when. This is probably why I have this lifelong thing for pasta.
A few years ago, I was a member of a creative writing site. My handle started out as Student of the Word then evolved over time. It was switched to Student, Stu, dent etc. .
In their chat room one of the other writers was making up a story and dubbed me SirDent. I liked the handle and kept it.
My name comes from my Pagan beliefs, and felt completely spiritual/comfortable to me when I chose it. I have used this name online in various forms (with or without the 2003 part) since the mid 1990's.
Mine, I'm afraid, is a shocking blend of historical intrigue and family debate, and is actually my real name...
The second (boring) part, Hamilton, relates to my ancestors who came to Scotland from England as part of Edward I's Norman army in the 13th century.
The first part (Gordon) was my mother's idea. I am named after Gordon MacRae (the American actor). There were two other options. My mother wanted most of all to call me Elvis (no explanation should be required there!) and my Dad wanted to call me Lester (after Lester Piggott, the legendary British horse racing jockey and his favourite jockey).
I am fairly satisfied with their agreed compromise...
I'm just a dreamer living by faith. Mine is actually about a journey. My life and the seasons of change I've gone through. Hence I live only in Faith each day to pursue my dreams.
Mine was accidental, but it was ironic, so I kept it.
Several years back, I went to sign up for something. The username jcmayer was used. I tried jcmayer1 and 2 and it wouldn't accept those. I'm an impatient jackass, so I typed in jcmayer and just hit a number three times. I happened to be a 7.
People assume it's a religious reference, but the ironic thing is, I'm an atheist. I liked it so much, I started using it for just about everything.

Hi guys, can you still remember the first hubber you followed here in hubpages? Or the first hubber you got friends with?
by Zach 7 years ago
Hello,I'll give you a little background to the story here. I write on hubpages under the alias of Joe Macho. It was the first thing to pop in my head, and I find it more comfortable to write under this name than my real one. My problem now, is that I was contacted by another hubber and asked...

What does your interesting Hubber name mean?Some are self explanatory, with hubbers using their real name. Some are different though, l am wondering what prompted some of them. For instance, mine is Xanzacow. It is the first 3 letters of my 2 youngest sons' names and then the first 2 letters of our...

How do you react to hubs with comments disabled?As a hub reader, how important is it to you to be able to comment? Does it frustrate you when you are not allowed to comment on a hub? Will you still vote on that hub? Will you follow an author who disables comments? I wonder if disabling comments...
