    Why did you choose your particular screen name ?

    My screen name speaks for itself because I do a lot of my work at night, what about yours ?

    duffsmom.  My best dog every, my best friend was my chocolate lab Duffy.  He lived to be 13 years old and is gone but not forgotten. So years ago when I needed an online name, I just choose duffsmom.  Now I have Tully but I don't want to change my user name at this point.  I've been duffsmom for years.

      It really does sound as if we choose names that hit close to home for us.

      It certainly does.

    I wanted something environmentally friendly, and after receiving two awards by my garden club, I decided to use them as my screen name.  Pennies for Pines is a donation to the U.S. Forestry Service for reforestation of areas devasted by fire and other catastrophic events.  Every $100.00 plants 100 new trees in the award recipient's name.  200 new trees have now been planted in my name.

    My screen name is easy to figure out. My first name is Jeannie.  Since it sounds like "genie," I am "Jeannie in a bottle."  I did not like my name when I was a kid because people would ask me to grant them 3 wishes and stupid things like that.  I've learned to embrace it now.

    "Fat Freddy's Cat" is a character in my favorite comic book series, "The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers" by Gilbert Shelton.
    I've been using it as an online alias on forums and bulletin boards for years 'n' years so when I joined here I saw no reason why I shouldn't continue the tradition.

    Souther was a character from a favourite Manga series called Fist of The North Star and was one of the few characters that Kenshiro (the main character) couldn't beat for a long time.

    Partly because I'm a big kung fu fan and the character also intrigued me a lot, his story and his visual look is pretty awesome and very different from a lot of the other characters.

    Psychologically who knows... like to be unique...nobody else had this name... also I find the name gives me a bit of personal strength sometimes.

    Mine is a trait I value in everyone and expect from myself.  Because I like to make people think, I chose a word representing that trait and just spelled it backwards.

      Clever. Being ytsenoh with yourself is the greatest value an individual can possess. It is the gem of all gems.

    I chose my screen name because no one else has it, and my screen name represent "newness" doing new things and learning new things to stay diligent. Also my screen name "Brinafr3sh" is my brand-name online.

    No kidding, after about ten minutes of trying I found that several of the screen names I tried were already taken. I finally just settled on something off the top of my head and the results are...lackluster. Hubpages, I'd like a do-over smile

    When I started this site. I figured the best way to go was the personal name recognition. I was thinking about coming up with a pen name. As I have had some experience with stalkers. So, maybe in the future..as I grow with my writing. I will be inspired to come up with a pen name. This would be interesting, hmmm?  I have so many pen names to choose from, now it is going to be a toss up of which one to go with! :-)  I really like your pen name. cool! :-)

    Shalom

      I do believe in making your screen name unique to you. Just remember that until you find that unique one, you can always change your mind.

    In my particular case the question should be slightly reworded. Over the years I have acquired many sites and many different names. On HubPages the name I go under reflects my actual name. As for the other sites I have used Guinevere since when I was a very young child my mother called me that. My toddler reply was, "I'm no Goon-A-Bear"! Other site names had a reference to being a cat lover.
