Well Jan in CA is pretty clear...my name is Jan and I live in California. Jan is common and often taken so this usually works.

However.... in most other forums I've participated in I am Purrcat. The reason behind that is pretty simple. Eight years ago I went to stay with my brother's family in Plano, TX to help take care of their toddler while my SIL had a new baby. At that time I had no other email than the one the cable company gave me so I needed a Yahoo addy. Everything I tried was taken! I like cats so choosing cat variations was a natural and this one took.

You know that Friedchickenonmyknitten name... till I just read this I thought it said KITTEN!!

Mine is simply my initials plus the last four numbers of my phone number. Not very imaginative, but easy to remember. Have never had any conflicts with anyone else.

No great story here. Mary is such a common name that I had to add something. My given name is Mary Elizabeth and my family calls me Mary Beth-------only my family gets away with that. I'm Mary to every one else.

Other screen names include mbcalva (my initials and the street where we live) and npltd (I owned Needle Pointe, Ltd for several years).

I just use my real name. And at least it's usually not taken since my mother didn't know how to spell 'Angela' but most everyone else's mothers did. :rollseyes: Sometimes I use characters from Spenser's The Faerie Queene since they're usually not taken either (and I think they're pretty, esp. the first one!): Marinell, Emmilen, Duessa, Florimel, Gloriana, etc.

Well, my real nickname is Beast. From the X-Men. I worked at a library for 8 years and was something of a walking encyclopedia, so one of my co-workers dubbed me that.

HanAku comes from a novel I wrote years ago. It's just a piecing of two japanese words: han = half / aku = evil or bad.

Though I have friends who claim I'm 100% evil

BinkyKat is me... for my cat..Binky. He's quite the character and I have used his name as the "company name" of a lot of my handmade stuff in various forms with our last name...Hay. Most often on the back of computer printed cards I put a funny cartoon pic of an orange kitty and title it the Hay!Binky Card Co.
If I make a paper tag for a gift I put "Look what my mommy made!" from Hay!BinkyBeads or Hay!BinkyKnits
I think it got started when the crate we carried him to the vet in came labeled with "Binky - cat" when we took him to be fixed...so they knew it was his crate and not the dog also named Binky at our local vet.
