I usually stay pretty quiet, but thought I would jump in here! I'm a mom, last name boat(right) and I have 5 kiddos. Thought it was catchy (Mambo #5) but most people don't catch on to that!
Anyway, it's easy to remember and I've used it everywhere so it's original.

Aurora .. a name indicating South of the Equator and Southern Skies - Aurora Australis (as opposed to Aurora Borialis .... Northern skies) Aurora was also some sort of Mythological person in Greek History ...... Dawn of Light or something. I have no Greek in me.

I can't remember enjoying reading a thread so much in a while, but this has been a real pleasure and some are very touching. When I got here I was so anxious to get on I didn't lurk around and read for days and or weeks I found it and when I got here I just signed on there was already a Karen so I used Karen and NJ for New Jersey of course. After I was here for a while I thought some of the names were so neat I was sorry I didn't lurk and then pick a name but it was too late.

Thanks again bravo for a great thread thumbsup

Karen

The love of my life is my "special" daughter whose name is Lindsey. We call her Linds for short. When I joined gameboomers it was the first name that came to mind.

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

How many here played Discworld Noir?? Enough said!! For those that haven't one of my favorite characters in the gameworld is Lewton, the detective from that crazy world in the far out galaxies (sort of a mixed up jumble of those great detectives of film noir, Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe to name a few).

Happy gaming all,
Lewton (yeah I know, this is the correct spelling, LOL)

My story isn't terribly interesting, but I'll tell it again, because there are a bunch of new people since the last time we had a thread about names.

My real name is Janet, and when I was looking for a user name I picked Jenny because I am approximately 1/2 Scot, and Jenny is the Scottish nickname for Janet...

The first part is simple I love cats (checkout my new avatar) The second part - because our surname is scarborough(a seaside town in yorkshire) my son got the nickname skeg(a seaside town further down the coast)at school and is still skeg today at 31yrs.

I summer in Everett WA and winter in Yuma AZ which is where I was when I registered for Gameboomers.I first tried to register as Dolittle and was told that was already taken. I had to make up a name quickly and at that moment there was a major dust storm blowing outside.Thus Duststorm. Yes, the dust does blow in the southwest.

Wow, what a fantastic thread! Thanks for adding your story, catsskeg, and bumping it up, or I might never have seen it. Some of your stories are just great - Laura, yours is hilarious, while Inferno, yours is incredibly touching.

Now, I'll add mine to the mix. It's reeeeally boring laugh Gita's my name. I didn't capitalize the "G" because for years I didn't use capital letters in communication. It wasn't so much laziness as it was that I really just dislike capital letters! I'm not sure what changed - perhaps I felt that it was time to leave my "l33t g33k" days behind - but now I'm writing normally again laugh

I actually have no idea why/how I happened to sign up with it, 'coz I *never* use it to sign up for stuff. Usually, I use justG, because you'd be amazed by just how many people have trouble remembering how to spell and/or pronounce a 4-letter name. Also, many of my friends just call me G (no, not G Money, or G Thang, or any other such silliness). Oh, and by the way, for fans of Will & Grace.. I was using justG WAY before "Just Jack." So hmph.

I forget who suggested it now, but I think a photo thread would be great. I know many of us frequent other forums as well, so the pics may be redundant, but many don't, so they umm... won't.. be. laugh

Well, I've avoided answering this one for awhile now, but here goes anyway:

When I first stumbled across this board, I was trying to track down a bug in the demo for Gilbert Goodmate--and sure enough someone had posted on the topic. I felt like replying, but of course I couldn't do so without registering.

But at the time I didn't actually think I'd stick around very long--maybe post once or twice and go. So I didn't really think very hard about my screenname...

...so I tried to come up with the silliest, most ostentatious name I could think of. I happened to be reading Ender's Game at the time, and if you've read the book you probably know what significance Locke and Demosthenes have.

So there was my name, and then for some reason I can't possibly fathom I managed to stick around a little longer than I'd expected. lol

I struggled to come up with a name that had a "tongue in cheek" feel to it. I also wanted it to represent a very important part of who I am. I love studying languages and other cultures. So, having studied Russian in the military, I decided that I would choose a Russian word to be my moniker. I finally decided on spetsia. It's derived from the Russian adjective meaning spicy. It symbolizes my love of foreign languages, my food preferences and temperament. I've used it for years. If you see it online, it's probably me. smile So, just say "Hi".

My real name is Tinara. My father came up with it. Believe it or not, it's usually taken! As for capital letters, I guess I was just to lazy to hit the shift key. lol

wave My username came from a time my son and I were playing the same game on our only computer. If I remember right one character was named Homer, and since my son chose that name to save his games with, I added the 6 and Homer6 came into being. Now, anytime I sign onto a new site I use Homer6. I sometimes wonder if I didn't add that 6 because that's how I act now and then. lol

spetsia, just wanted to say that when I first saw your nick I thought it was Greek - my best friend's last name is Spetsieris smile Your real name is really pretty, by the way. Oh, and I absolutely love the study of languages too smile

Homer6, I was going to ask "why 6?" - but you answered that laugh

LOL @ Mad!

When I first signed on to Gameboomers, I somehow managed to use a word that I normally use as a password as my user name. I continued with that for quite some time until it began to spook me that my password was now so public.

After Gameboomers indicated I could change it I had to come up with another name. My department at work had become dominated with 30 somethings who considered anyone over 40 as ancient and anyone over 50 as positively decrepit. I was still smarting from having just been denounced in a meeting as a geezer after pointing out the obvious flaws in a proposal, so the choice was easy. (Incidently, my assessment proved correct.)
