OT- Screen names...
I am sitting here constantly amused by some of the screen names we see on here (seriously...FriedChickenOnMyKnitten, which i read wrong initially! :rofling: ) and wonder where people got their names or if they have others that are unusual where they got them.

Brendajos is pretty obvious I suppose. My name is Brenda. Jo is my middle name. and my last name starts with S. and i have NEVER had to fight to get that If i go to a site that says that someone is already using that name, i can usually come up with the password for it if i think hard enough! ;)

I also use Blue_Knitter on my blog i pretend to keep up to date. Essentially it is all about politics and knitting...and these days more

and the rarely used MyHornzRpokinMyHalo is all about my bratty side getting in the way of my good side. And the reason my halo is constantly needing polished (as Dustina can attest to! :rofling: )

I was dubbed Indian Princess by my husband The Bard, who introduced me to message boarding over three years ago. He wrote a series of poems to me in which I was his Indian Princess. SIP stands for Standing In Power. I have roots in the Yaqui tribe. My Grandfather always told me I was a real Indian Princess. ;)

"Kira" is the name I was given when I started studying Russian in college; "Kirochka" (pronounced "KEE-ruch-kuh") is a diminutive form of it. So there you go! ;)

Well I have told some of you already that my name is a literary reference. I don't ever use my real name on this board because of the yarn swap and I use my real name for that, therefore, can't unmask myself till the swap is over. :-)

Carmen Ibanez is a minor character in the novel "Starship Troopers" by Robert Heinlein. Yes there is a movie that is loosely based on the book, and in the movie the Carmen character is more predominant. But it is the book that I love. The only other female character in the book is Dizzy Flores and I use that name for stuff sometimes as well. :-)

And being an astronaut nut, I also sometimes use Sally Ride as a screen name.

My name comes from my real name Jenelle.

I often use Nell or Nellie as names.

I also use Nelliebear(looong story).

I thought I would use my real name instead of those here, beings that I don't really like them anymore. :rollseyes:

My screen name is a combination of the two nicknames which have stuck with me.

There was a friend of the family who's son had an impossible time with Andrea, he'd just mangle it, poor thing. Eventually, after many permutations, he settled on Anree.

Ace comes from my DH. For quite a while when I was in school, I got straight A's (at the cost of having NO social life), so he calls me Ace.

Et Voilą, AnreeAce!
