Since I've recently started dating, I've introduced myself as Hildie, and I kind of like it!
Now that I'm divorced, once I get all my crap together to change myname back, I'm going to add Hildegard to my legal name
You go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had no idea that moose were that big. I always thought they were a LOT smaller than they are... </random thought>

I was just so excited to get my name!!! I now have wished many, many, many times that I typed in "Becka" but...duh, too late now!! And then, of course, I wish Knitting Yoda (not meaning I am one, but it is my signature av!), but I hadn't even taken the photo at that point! Knitting Yoda would be the coolest name ever! I would change my name to it, but then I would then sound like I know so much about knitting which ain't even close to the truth, LOL!
I do love everyone's imagination, tho!

I'm replying again, because I changed my username. I was cawthraven, and am now Stiney.

My brother couldn't say my name when he was little, so he said "Stine" (rhymes with "queen.") One of my best friends found this out and started calling me this. At some point in college, all of my friends from home started calling me Stine. Except one, who was pronouncing it "Stine" rhymes with "mine," so he and all of his college friends call me that.

I started going by that on here instead of Christine or cawthraven, and asked Amy to switch my name. Stine was taken, but I get called "Stiney" a lot, too, so that works.

And both pronunciations of my name are equally correct and valid.

Brenda, I say either "brenDA-hoes" or "BRENdaJOEZ."

As someone mentioned earlier, Mine is from the Faerie Queene. I think the story is pretty cool and I like to use literary references because they are almost never taken and I'm a Lit major so I have a huge bank to choose from. I almost always use villian names too because they are much cooler than the chick the guy gets. lol I have another user name that I use on some games, Madea. everyone thinks it's after that tv show but it's an ancient greek play and she is an evil sorceress. I guess that make me sound a little snobby. lol

Many may think my screenname Medic777 refers to something medical or my occupation but oh no, first 2 letters of my first name, first 3 letters of my last name, and my lucky number. So there ya go. Sometime I use Nanasknitsticks. This came about when I lost one of my 14" No. 8 straight knitting needles and had looked for it for weeks. My visiting 5 year old grandson got so excited one day and said "Hey, I found Nana's knit stick!!

Well mine is boring compared to some of the others I've seen. Linda was taken so I just added Lovely to it. I've since wished I had given it more thought but I guess I was afraid I'd forget.

Oh well.
