I always get curious as to the meanings behind peoples' log-in names. Mine's pretty simple. Kathryn is my first name and K is my middle initial. But some of you out there have me baffled :) It's kinda like vanity plates, always trying to figure out the meaning!

Ciao;

Pretty simple. "Hello" or "goodbye" in Italian.

My name is Kate, and when I was trying to think of a name, my super muttly mutts were sitting at my feet. My dogs are so muttastic that they kind of resemble dingoes. So I wound up with DingoKate (DingoK8).

krampus
11-28-2010, 10:28 PM
Krampus is a monster in Austro-Bavarian mythology who serves as the anti-Saint Nicholas. St. Nick rewards the good kids and Krampus punishes the bad kids by beating them with birch saplings and a rusty chain.

krampus I always wondered about yours! What a delightful story :P

Mine...I've used the same name for a few sites for many many years now, it comes from a chewing gum I used to like when I visited America - I don't actually think it's called Rainbow Stripe gum, but it's striped gum and I think it has a zebra on the packet...maybe?

Holy crap! :fr: :lol:

My name is from "Jane Eyre." I've read the book about 20 times and have seen every film version of the book that was ever made. Jane has such fortitude in the face of adversity, is always true to herself, and she never stops believing in her dreams. But I didn't want to use "Jane" because (1) it's common and (2) everyone would think it was my real name. So I chose Rochester, the name of the man Jane falls in love with. Also, my real name is more commonly a male name, so it works in that regard as well.

One of my favourite book characters is from the Pern dragonrider series. He actually isn't a dragonrider - he is the MasterHarper and his name is Robinton. So my name is a feminisation of his. I actually made it up to join a Pern forum some years ago and have used it ever since.

I always hated my actual name which is Margaret and when going to a concert the guitarist was called "H" so I wanted to be called "M". However it's not easy to get that over to people so it became Emm and lengthened a bit just for forum purpose. All my friends call me Emm. My family just thought it was very funny and mocked any time I reminded them that's what I wanted to be called so I eventually gave up. It always gives me a real boost when my friends call me Emm. Strange what an effect a name can have.

Ruth is my real name but there was another Ruth on the Forum. I added xxx and that stuck. Of course, lots of folks think it's because I'm XXX-rated!

Oh, I love Jane Eyre! And yet I never connected it. :dizzy: My all time favorite, though, is Wuthering Heights. There are some passages I could just read again and again and again.


"Eliana" is quite simply my chosen Hebrew name. It means "God has answered".

Way back a million years ago, I made up this name thinking "it will be good for me, I'm going to get healthy."

But now I think of it as an affirmation, my own little pat on the back to myself.

Aunty Jam
11-29-2010, 04:40 PM
My sister has a set of twins and I was teaching them how to say my name (not Jamie btw..) and they were stuck on the J. The girl twin has quite the sense of humor and called me Aunty Jam (like the food) then started laughing her head off. We all thought it was funny and it's just kind of stuck... they're 9 years old now and still call me Aunty Jam.

Some of you are so creative!

Krampus- I minored in childrens lit. and did a lot of research in folk lore and fairy tale history. I was kind of tickled I knew that one. :)

Rainbow- OMG I love that stuff!! I haven't thought of it for years but it was my favorite as a kid too.

Mine is boring... my first and middle name.

Harsdottir
12-02-2010, 04:14 PM
My whole name and tags are a nod to mythology, and alternative philosophy

Har is one of the names of Odin
Dottir means daughter in Icelandic

so "child of har" is har's dottir

"Six rayed star" has a complicated meaning.

It can be known as the unicursal hexagram, or it can represent a concept in mysticism known as Tiferet/Tiphareth, or it can represent the Jewish symbol known as the Star of David. All those subjects tend to be discussed at length in many theosophical and western esoteric communities.

cincimini
12-02-2010, 05:02 PM
Krampus - I was wondering if that was where your name came from. I remember being scared to death of the Krampus when I was little :lol:. They aren't that bad anymore now, but my mom says the Krampuses used to walk the streets and really beat kids with metal chains when she was little. That's what I call good German parenting! :lol:

My name (cincimini) is simply 'Cinci' b/c I used to live in Cincinnati and 'mini' b/c I drive a mini cooper. That's really the only thing 'mini' about me :lol:. I've used that name on other forums and many people now call me Cin in real life, too.
