monday morning question

      

What is your screename?  How did you choose it?  What does it mean to you?

My answer:  mine is fisherkristina.  I chose it because it was my name at the time I signed up. (It's my maiden name.)  I guess I wasn't worried about being anonymous, LOL.  kristinafisher was taken so I just chose fisherkristina. 
 
When I wanted to change my screename to my married name after I  married, AOL informed me that if I wanted to keep my journal name Sometimes I Think, that I would have to start everything anew, and that the entries from the old Sometimes I Think wouldn't carry over to the new journal!  So I am still using my maiden name fisherkristina, to keep my blog all in one piece.  
 
I was thinking last night that I was keeping my last name a secret to a degree, then I remembered that my husband John uses the screename johneknox.  I think you can figure out my last name, LOL! 
 
Now it's your turn.  Tell us how you chose your screename!

  1. good question, Krissy.

    Lv2trnscrb = Love 2 transcribe; I do medical transcription and I enjoy doing it. When I first got it, screennames could only be I think up to 10 characters so that's why it is abbreviated. Now I think they can be longer.

    have a good Monday!

  4. I have two screen names one is magicgenii which I rarely use now and the other is made of my own name and initials.
    The magicgenii one came from children I taught in my gymnastic club when they thought my name should have been spelled as Genie and not Jeanie.  I also had a habit then of saying magic!  If one of them learnt a new move.  So..I put them both together when I first began to come on line and visit othe folks journals.
    Love
    Jeanie   xxxx

  12. monicasmemoirs1/28/2008 3:27 PM

    Well, my main screen name that I use for e-mails and all that good stuff is SonEnSmilinMon = Sonny (my husband) N Smilin Mon (what people have called me for years - Monica abbreviated).

    This one MonicasMemoirs was created for a private journal that I started to write and eventually trashed that journal.  I suppose I would've gone back to the main screen name to start the public journal that I'm using now but, I forgot where I was when I created it and now I don't want to move again!

    Good question.

    Monica

    Hi Krissy - my screen-name came out of my love for kids and the fact that we had just been trhough an emotional firestorm in '04 when we moved back to the states from Mexico.  Nothing has changed, LOL - so I' thinking of getting another S/N for everything but my journal.  Love you my friend, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/TimeforaLittlePoetry

    Hi Krissy,
    My screen name is my husband's and my first initials and our lastname... so when smudged all together it kind of looks like randal, as if it belongs to a fellow named Randy.  Like you, at the time, I wasn't all that interested in staying anonymous either and my husband is too busy for his own email box, so we just share one.  He hardly ever uses internet so it works out fine.  Hugs,
    Lisa

  20. I choose this screen name merry1621, as Merry is my first name, and 1621 is the our street adress.  I like my name, because I like the way it is spelled, and I figured using my name and my house address I wouldn't forget it, and wouldn't get sick of it.  My other screen names have become a little bolder (perhaps STRANGER) is a better word for them. Thanks for letting me play, Krissy! Merry

    My middle name (my mom's maiden name, weird hispanic tradition) is Preciado, Precious... I know I'm God's PreciousOne, but it was taken.  So I started adding number 'til I found one that wasn't taken.... I think I got to 12 before I just JUMPED to 25 and it WASN'T taken, so I grabbed it.... so the 25 means absolutely nothing!!  LOL!!!

  36. I have had my screen name since my daughter was just a toddler. She always loved flowers..when she tried to say flowers...it came out Fowfies (long O sound). I thought that was just cute as could be, so I kept that toddler memory with my screen name all these years. :) She is thirteen now!
