I had to come up with a name for something else recently. I hate picking names. So I googled "unique English words" and "strange English words" and picked something fun from the list.

My username is the name of a character from a few novels by my favorite author.

I've also played around with the names of things I like ... like an animal (wolf becomes wulph, cuttlefish becomes cuddlefish)

My username kinda-sorta rhymes with my real name...maybe you can think of something like that? Also, an old friend used to call me "Lima bean" along with my real name.
How about using your real first name reversed, or the letters mixed up, or something? Sara become Aras...Libby could be Billy...Amy become Mya....

I am really bad about picking usernames. My Hubby picked my current name. It took me forever in just thinking of something unique and he finally came up with it.

I think a username should reflect who I am and when you see it, I stand out as in, "Of course! I know who that is!" type of way.

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

I think you need to find a name that represents you. My name is something I have gone by for a long time. Since highschool it was always Pat and the Guys....95%of my friends are guys and certainly my closest friends are....I was always the Lone Girl in the bunch.

What is in your life that has a lot of meaning for you? Is there something you always find yourself turning to? For instance, my UN is from Full of Grace by Sarah McLachlan. I loved the song even before it hit Buffy (which I also loved hee) and I connected with "If all of the strength ~ And all of the courage~ Come and lift me from this place" --- For me it's you can get pulled down and even under but still be lifted back up. If that wasn't my UN it would probably be something techno/gaming or sci-fi/fantasy geeky.

What lifts you up?


Reading further... I love BarefootBaker! Very cute.

My username is a combination of my favourite season and my favourite 'ancient element'- together making me think of that fantastic crisp, near-liquid air you get on October evenings... Ahhh!

I like 'combination' usernames BarefootBaker is a good one!

I like "The Awesomeness Formerly Known as Mrs. Turner" so much, that I vote your username be "BarefootBaker" and your title be The Awesomeness Formerly Known as Mrs. Turner. Oh wait, you're not a Senior yet. Get on with that!

How do you go about changing your username anyway? I've tried to figure it out and eventually gave up.

Name changes are a paid service. Send a Paypal payment of $2.50 to [email protected] and be sure to include your current username and up to three choices of new names in case the one you want is taken. There's more detailed info in the FAQ in my siggy that may help, and any further questions can be placed in Q&S. (admins just like ?s where they can answer, too )

Let's see....I think BarefootBaker is my favorite, but I'm rethinking whether I even want to continue to even be a baker. I think I'm going to make the decision within the next few days.

My next best faves are Pinecone, and then 2 that I thought of are LittleTreasures and TickleyTurtle. Maybe also Mom2LittleTreasures but that might be too long.

I'm still laughing at TAFKAMT!!!

You know, when I clicked on this thread I had "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon & Garfunkel stuck in my head and I keep thinking that should be your new name. Now whenever I scroll by this thread I think, "oh look, it's Mrs. Robinson's thread." Silly I know but I am a silly silly person after the 2 beers I just had.

Happy name hunting! BTW, I like BarefootBaker too.

Congrats. I dig the new name. I also recently had to change my username thanks to a divorce. It's kind of weird, but I'm getting used to it already.

Enjoy the new name.
