Hello peeps. I was just wondering where'd you're screen names come from. Anyother nicknames, at that? Here are some of mine!

Cato- Actual nick-name, also a research facility.

Cato 3000/ 911/ 100/ 101/ 0001- If I screw up in regisation, I just do it over with numbers so I can keep Cato.

Cat- Some people are very lazy. Can't even add an 'o' to it.

Catofrancounamericano- Don't ask. No, really. Don't.

Cathington- A friend and I like acting like rich sobs and replace some letters in people's names with 'ington'.

Cathy: This actually isn't a nickname, some sixth year friends of mine actually think I'm called 'Cathy'. I really should correct them. Think about it:
'Yo, Cathy....Cathy?...Cathyyyy.. CATHY!.... CATHY!!!!!'
...'Me?'

I like Cathington! Sounds very... rich... ;)

Me, Nat's short for Natalie. Echo is from greek mythology. There was a time when I could relate to that story alot, and then I just started to like it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Mine is simple - no real thought involved in choosing it. I have a dragon on my arm, and my name is Dan. Pretty straight forward.

Spence- used to be Spencer, which came from Specser (I wear glasses)

Eoin- my real name

Draco

I got the 79 from my old e mail address. Because my old e mail address was infusions79, so I stuck with the 79. I dunno why the number had to be 79 though. :confused:

Scooby- I was obsessed w/ scooby a few years back

I wanted to have something with my last name (croft) but that would be too original in a Tomb Raider forum http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif .

The Eidos forums were the first forums I have ever signed up for too sis. My username was Melonie Tomb Raider there too, so that's why it is here lol. Melonie is my name and I like Tomb Raider so I joined them. Not that original though, but it works.

Hey Everbody! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

BlingBlingBrat- Lol who knows whut I wuz thinking ,but I remember I wuz listenin to a song. Also that day I got a new necklace and it wuz really shiny so I could see the sparkles reflect in the screen some how. So I guess thats where I got that from.( Im surprised I remember that)

Sunny- Thats my real name ,but I have some nicknames.

One of my best friend calls me Sunny D. You know from Sunny Delight(The Orange Juice).

Another one of my best friend calls me O.J.(Initials for Orange Juice).

And my middle name starts with a G. So a different best friend calls me Sunny G.(you know like "whuts up G" I dont know if everyone knows though its from an old Hip-hop song)

One of my best friends name is Stormie so when shes mad I call her Stormie Weather and she calls me Sunny Weather when im happy.

I bet theres more ,but I just cant think of them right now.

I get picked on by being called yam. Its an anogram for my first name. Some others also just say my name funny by saying each syllable differently from what it should be. Other than that I just have you guys calling me scoob. Im not really nickname-able.

Tramp
31-03-04, 07:35
Tramp is the name of one of my dogs. Every time I tried to use my real name anywhere it was always taken so I have stuck to Tramp. My real name is Cathy. My usual nickname is Kate. I was also nicknamed Little Dingo years ago by a Sydney DJ (Donnie Sutherland). Always took it as a compliment as Dingo's are very smart and not vicious cowardly baby killers. I used to own two part bred dingo's and they were really gentle and loving. They would even stop parents from giving their kids a slap if they were naughty, they seemed to believe that big people should not hit little people. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/love4.gif

the croft woman!
31-03-04, 09:52
The Croft Woman! ... I got no idea why I chose it! I think i was in a rush to get back to my TR game and The Croft Woman! Was the first thing I thought of!

I als o use these ID's on Lycos, MSN and some email accounts:

ann_summers_chick - Ann Summers is my fave store, I didnt just want my ID to be Ann_summers though, so I thought... Well im a girl so i'll just put Chick on the end!

laras_dark_angel - I was going through summat a while back where i wanted to be a baddie in TR, but not a human... I loved Angel of darkness so thought up this ID

Kinky_love_kitten - there's a insider joke about this ID, but I cant share it ;)
And also I knew it'd get some guys attention so I could make friends easier on lycos!
