I'll start... mine's way boring, it's just the last 3 letters of my first two kid's names (Ta<b>zja</b> & I<b>nde</b>). I created it 8+ years ago & have used it for everything ever since so I feel stuck with it. But I wish I'd come up with something more clever!!<br><br>

I made this username about 5-6 years ago and also use it for everything ever. But I love it. It's from Frank Herbert's Dune series and means "desert springtime"

I think yours are pretty creative! Mine's as boring and simple as it gets. Actually, I won't even tell you. Let's see how long it takes to figure it out. Heh....

I'm a mama, and my first name starts with the letter b. Real creative, huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

Belleweather is from the Connie Willis novel "Bellwether".<br><br>
In the book, the bellwether is a sheep with a big pink bow tied around it's neck, who pesters the other sheep into action. Plus, it's a really fantastic book that was set in my hometown at the time I picked it out. I've been using it constantly, everywhere, for the last 5-ish years.

Well.. One day, many a year ago, I was talking to my friends about what my stage name would be when I got into movies and I said I liked the idea of using Harper as a first name, since it was ancestral. I needed a last name to go with it.. Someone suggested Rigby.. Harper Rigby.. sounded cool. Then a friend suggested switching the e in Harper with the y in Rigby to make Harpyr Rigbe more unique.. I thought that was cool.. Well I never became an actor and I dropped the Rigbe and kept Harpyr as an internet handle and activist/magical alias.. I like it because it's totally unique! For a long time I was the only one using that particular spelling variation, as far as I could tell.. until recently.. Now when I google it, I come up with a frisbee catching dog with the same unique spelling of the name. grrrrrr.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I spent more than six years at Fort Hood, TX. I like Texas, but six years is too long to spend at Fort Hood. My only way out was to volunteer for Korea 4 months after returning from Iraq. Maybe I should've picked "hoorayforkorea" instead - that sounds more positive. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My middle name is Lizbet and one day, as children, my younger brother called me Lizardbits, when we were fighting. I liked it and it has stuck. The spelling change came when hotmail closed my account and I had to come up with a new spelling---now that account is closed too, lol!<br><br>
BTW, yes i really like lizards and my favorite pet was Geek, a leopard-spotted gecko.

I chose mine because I was pretty sure no one else would have one similar.

Mines a boring one too-I like penguins-the intentional misspelling is due to my grammy who mispronounces oh so many things, so she has always called them pen-quins.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> and I'm a mom...so there ya go!

Mine is because I was stating the obvious and couldn't come up with anything else.

All my other names were taken, so I kinda hybridized them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

That is funny Aubrey... I remember you from The One Thread so when a 'zandj' popped up on another pregnancy board that I frequent I thought it was you. No way, though. TOTALLY different mindsets and I believe she is preggo with #1. Just a weird co-incidence on unusual usernames, I guess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
