Sorry if this has been done before, but I haven't seen it... (I know we've done boat names, and that never gets old.) There are some very interesting, unique, and funny usernames here. Let's start a thread whereby we explain the story behind the name. Here's mine...

MOoNFiSH - Back in the 80s/early 90s I wanted to start my own advertising agency/production company. And for years I wanted to call it "Bingo, Bango, Boingo". Of course, within the ad world, everyone thought that was a cool, creative name and quite catchy. I even thought the receptionist could shorten it and answer the phone, "Good morning, B-cubed." Until one day I was having a conversation about it with my ex, and she said that though Bingo, Bango, Boingo might be hip in the ad world, some "conservative" potential clients/companies might think it "immature". I considered her comment a slight insult, but then we began to try to think of another name. Eventually, as she collected tropical fish stuff, and I was a moon lover (the one in the sky), she blurted out, "I know, Fish and Moon Advertising." Without missing a beat, I immediately replied "Moonfish..." And so it stuck. Just so happens to go with the sailing/water world, too.

And I designed it to utilize the combination of lower case and caps so that no matter what font was used, the integrity of the "logo" was retained. Thus MOoNFiSH...

I'm a bit on the crazy side. Maybe more than a bit.

MGMhead, my three initials and a contraction of my last name. I've been using it for years and I've never heard of another. Hey, it's easy for me to remember too.

Montenido - It is the name of the neighborhood that I live in. Off Malibu Canyon in the Los Angeles area. Unique and easy to remember. Now my avatar... I just love the bewildered look on Mel's face in his booking photo. 'Nuff said.

tdw is a jewel in the rough tdw is a jewel in the rough tdw is a jewel in the rough
It is something of perennial this one but for the record

T - Townes - a nod to my favourite songwriter and the man who turned me on to real country music.

D - don't mean a thing......in the old days of Usenet my moniker was Townes D Wombat.......just sounded more high falootin' with the D added. That was then, this is now.

W - Wombat - Hey, I'm Australian and Kangaroos are a bit passe......and you have to admit The Womboat has a nice ring to it. (Kangarooboat ? I don't think so. ) Kangaroos are also quite popular when BBQed and with SD around that could get me on the lunch menu....not even a Texan would think about eating Wombat....

The name of my boat... SV on the front helps avoid conflicts.

Twisty is short for mistwist. Which was the name I used for 6 months of deception and sweet, sweet revenge.

In a nut shell, girl meets guy, they date for over a yr, guy gets caught cheating, tho he doesn't know it. Girl pretends to be someone else on the internet for months then says lets meet.

Screen name $0
Countless hours pretending to be someone else $0
The look on his face when he figures out he is busted... PRICELESS!

Plus it is shorter than what he now calls me.
