Athansor comes from a book, A Winter's Tale, by Mark Helprin (my favorite novel). It's the name of one of the characters, who happens to be a somewhat magical white horse.
I used to be LeapofFaith on a number of message boards. LeapofFaith was also a somewhat magical horse, although he was a grey horse that I had. He lived to the ripe old age of 38.

Lyci is Alycia with the "a's" dropped. I have a unique name already, didn't have the creative energy to come up with something better! Lyci has been my nickname forever. It's pronounced (Lee-see)

My first name is Jennifer. One of my little sister's started calling me "Bee" when she was learning to talk. "Bee" stuck as my nickname. So, I sort of combined them.

I chose this username when on a gardening forum (when I had a garden, now living in NYC) and also because I have helped tend fires (with a pitchfork) at NA ceremonies.

My username came from mine and my husband's favorite song. When I first discovered I was in love with him I played Martina McBride's version of Valentine for him on the stereo. That became "our song" so my username is a compilation of my husband's first name and the title of our song.

The book "Where The Wild Thinds Are" has a lot of sentimental meaning for me. It was one of the first books I bought my firstborn, because My dh said he loved that book as a child. We read it so often my kids know it by heart - thus, MDC's ~*max*~ was born!

Hey, this is my first post!

I chose this name becase A.) it was available, and B.) it reflects my state of mind most of the time, especially when I've had no sleep!

Ever since my daughter was born, no matter what time day or night she woke up I would (and still do) say "good morning sunshine!"
I also email pics to family and friends daily and title them "daily dose of sunshine". Then, when my son was born, I carried it on to him. Only his pics are title "daily dose of sonshine".
ANYWAY..............
When I joined here, I tried sunshinemommy and it was taken so I used "Sonshinemommy"!

baremountain or bearfoot or something along those lines.

itsajenism = it's a jenism

i'm the "odd one" of the family and often times do things my own way (against family grain), so if someone questioned something, a family member would sometimes respond, "it's just a jenism".
some tried to make it an insult, so i took that joy from them by using it as a screenname.
i actually like it. ha.

- Jen, Mama to DS1 (02.04.05) and DS2 (02.11.10) & baby #3 due in early January 2013

"Alia" is from the Dune series by Frank Herbert. "Spice" is just another Dune reference. Alia is what I would have named my baby if he would have been born a girl.

I do not have the brain power right now to be creative (sick, moving, new baby...) so I used the screen name/email that my hubby and I have used since we wed. It's our initials. Boring but easy to remember.
