I've always gotten frustrated with people mangling my real name- Laura. I'm not Lari, Lori, Lauren or Lara, so I have never used the name much online. Previously I always used a variation on Talia, a character from the "Heralds of Valdemar" series by Mercedes Lackey. I always wanted to be Talia from the books... but many variations were usually taken, so I gave it up.

My screen name started as my Dungeouns & Dragons character / online roleplaying character. She was an elf mage bookworm. My DM (who runs the games) finally ended her run when he got mad and gave my character a book of unending happiness-- a book you can never put down. Oh well... the name is never taken-- it's my instand messenger screen name, as well as in some of my email addresses. It kinda stuck




Laura aka Eloewien

You can change your name in ebay if you want. You won't lose your rating. The numbers stay the same. You just get an icon beside your name that says you changed the name. At least that's what I understand happens. :thinking:

I got this screen name years ago. An ex-boyfriend LOVED to find different ways to spell things so

Secksie = sexy and brat=me...


So I'm secksiebrat

Nothing special! I never have a problem getting this screen name though

:rofling: I don't think you're slow...

I wasn't sure anyone would understand it as I excluded the spaces between the three parts. In Swedish we sort of make nouns and adjectives longer by adding words together. For example; cat is "katt" and owned (in this specific situation) is "ägda" and to say "cat owned Anna" we would simply add the two words (that form the final adjective) together and come out with "kattägda Anna".

Ah!

Well up til now, I've been reading "catownedanna" as CAT TOWNE DANNA in my head.

I somehow added another T, because I thought that "towne" was your way of spelling "town", and I thought "danna" was a term from your country for something I didn't know.

How in the heck did my mind come up with that?

That's what I get for not being a world traveller.

Well my screenname I've had for many many years, way back when the internet was mainly usenet and bulletin boards. It was oriiginally from a comic called The Watchmen, but over time I started studying Psychology as a hobby. (Yes I know I'm a bit odd) In most cases I never have to fight to get that particular nick, and when I do I usually tack on a number. or put it into hacker or "LEET' speech ie. R()R$|-|4C|-|

Actually, since you were wondering how you came up with that, it's all in how your brain "Chunks" information, or how you split up letters and numbers, I could go into more detail, but I really don't want to bore you.
