How did everybody get their names?
[Return to Topics]

Newgen    Posted 11-22-2003 at 09:00:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
I've seen threads on where everybody is from, what they are doing for holidays, and just about everything else, but how about how we got our screen names? Names like "Cindi", "Bob Ny", or "Lenore" are pretty self explanatary, but what about names like "Deadcarp", Salmoneye", "Bulldinkie" or "Cowpie"-to name just a few?

Duh, guess I should read the post first, I thought about it after I posted, and thought, hhmmm... I wonder if he meant our names on here, or our names, period, sorry, had a brain cramp. :) I just wanted everybody to know me by my real name, and where I was from.

Newgen    Posted 11-23-2003 at 08:20:07       [Reply]  [No Email]
I've always liked the name Kelly-thanks for replying!

KellyGa    Posted 11-23-2003 at 07:02:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
Kelly is an Irish name, and my Mamas roots are from Ireland. My sisters name is Erin, which is also Irish.

Retired in 92, so took name REt.

magpie    Posted 11-22-2003 at 20:00:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
Wife used to call me pie, cause I like pie, there are only two kinds of pie that I like, hot or cold.
She then changed it to magpie, because, I can be quite a pest at times.

cowpie    Posted 11-22-2003 at 18:07:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
I chose "cowpie" because it fit. I'm usually full of it, I sometimes feel like it, and ya can't take two steps without stompin' in it ;)

Stony Jim    Posted 11-22-2003 at 17:43:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
Was "Jim from Stonepile" because I live in a 200 year old stone house on 170 acres of billion year old rocks! Got shortened Because I got tired of typing all that! Even removed the "e" from "Stoney".

bulldinkie    Posted 11-22-2003 at 17:49:01       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I kind of got mine by accident..My kids were setting up computer and with my memory I said put password Bulldinkie and they put what they wanted as a joke I guess.But Bulldinkie is our mini donkey she doesnt have the usual markings of a donkey her face is all brown.Looks like a moose.Her name is bullwinkle we call her bulldinkie.and you thought what???It was a bulls dinkie nooo..We do raise texas longhorn cattle though..

Festus Grimes    Posted 11-22-2003 at 17:30:20       [Reply]  [No Email]
I was named after my great-grandfather. Actually I'm Festus Grimes IV but I don't want anybody to think I'm putting on any airs.

deadcarp    Posted 11-22-2003 at 17:15:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
well there was a poster around called blue eyes from hawaii, and she once asked about what animals we identified with, so i told her that i often felt like a dead carp, floating around a stagnant pond with 1 eye open.

while that's true enough considering how i've tortured this poor vessel*, (* like anything else - i could care less how many things i need to kick or twist or wire together or how many splashes of what i have to add, the thing had better start and get me home!) the simple truth is - like my old nix fogey and old warrior, my grandkids gave me this one when for fun i once surfaced sporting a kelp wig -- one of them quipped, "omigawd is it a bird? is it a plane? naw its only a dead carp" :)

Gimpleg Fagon    Posted 11-22-2003 at 16:23:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
Got the name, "Gimpleg" back when Jake, Fenwick and me was in Algeria in '52. What happened was we was in the back country and we run into some French girls and.....I guess I better not tell that story here.

Red Dave    Posted 11-22-2003 at 15:24:35       [Reply]  [No Email]

My parents gave me my name. :-)

Okie-Dokie    Posted 11-22-2003 at 15:06:56       [Reply]  [No Email]
That one should be easy to figure. Okie born, Okie bred, and when I'm gone I'll be Okie dead! A real honest to goodness Okie hill billy from the Deep Fork River Basin of the Cimmeron River Valley in Creek County Okla.

Jim(MO)    Posted 11-22-2003 at 14:36:36       [Reply]  [No Email]
Names Jim and I'm from Missouri. Kinda simple, like me. Sometimes my alter ego kicks in and I sign on as Curmudgeon.

Gene SC    Posted 11-22-2003 at 14:27:36       [Reply]  [No Email]
pretty straight forward name's Gene from
South Carolina. 1st time using a message board
didn't know you were supposed to make something up.

Joe Dirt    Posted 11-22-2003 at 14:18:54       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Well I needed an alias for another board. I had just watched the movie Joe Dirt. Thought what the heck, It sounds good, easy to spell...
Sorry, won't tell you my real name. The Bashing Board gets a bit rowdy.

WallSal55    Posted 11-22-2003 at 14:00:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
Needed a nick for the computer. The doc's office
already had one for me WallSa for their 'puter.
So, I made mine up, parts of my name, and birth
year. I still stump people, male or female?
Sal Gal or Sal Mineo? Some folks think I am
Walls, and some think I put up walls. (Take that
however you want to interpret it!)

Because I am 100% pure Svede, But I have never been to Sweden.

Grove r    Posted 11-22-2003 at 11:54:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
Hi, Newgen.... I knew that.....don't let old LH fool ya, his name ain't "Ralph"....we had this same thread about a year ago, guess that was before you started "handle" is derived from the English translation of my Norse name....the 'r' is just, well, an 'r', guess if you listened to a Norger say it, you would maybe find a very slight 'r' sound at the end, could also stand for my first name, Ron.,.....oh, you want my last name? "Lund", norse it would be "Lune", almost like loon, and I guess that is what makes my posts more than a little "off center", but, the way I look at it, if people don't like the way I post.....thats their problem, they don't have to read them, or respond, so, ya all have a gooder, R.E.L. [spose that will be the next question, where did ya get yer closing?]

Ron,Ar    Posted 11-22-2003 at 13:54:59       [Reply]  [No Email]
where I come from it stands for Robert E. Lee

Jake from Y.T.    Posted 11-22-2003 at 16:35:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
That's true Ron, But when I see or hear "REL" I think of ol Rawnose Elly Lawson, who worked over to the the Pink Gopher Bar and Grill in Yellowknife, but that's another story.

HOGMAN I'Grannies Jake    Posted 11-22-2003 at 17:28:43       [Reply]  [No Email]

Yeah, they named him after me, at least gave him the same initials, couldn't realy expect his mum to give him the same name...specialy when HIS last name was Lee.....have a gooder, R.E.L.

Clod    Posted 11-22-2003 at 17:23:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
I got my name from the name " Clodhopper".. I use this name most often..I guess because I am what they call a country hick up in the Big Apple..But ofcourse I'd be nothing else.

Doc    Posted 11-22-2003 at 11:41:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
Not that kind. Nickname given me by co-workers because I had a part time business called Photo Doc where I digitally repaired and restored old photographs. I played around with one on this site just for the fun of it. Look in Vintage Photos for "A Present for Lloyd from Michigan 10-03". I colorized that one as a present for the man that posted it. The original posted there also is titled "Gordon. F. Evans 1902 Deckerville Michigan" take a look at them and let me know what you think. Remember, I didn't spend a lot of time on it. Wasn't getting paid, lol.

p.s. If anyone knows the fellow that posted the original let him know about it. I haven't heard from him so I don't know if he's seen it yet. Hope he likes it.

Nevada State motto. I got sick of people taking my old handle wrong (it was Good Lord).

I'm from Indiana, and when my son was about 16, we got into a "debate" one evening. He mentioned that he thought I was just a "dumb old dirtfarmer". He's my "partner" now. My, how times change! John

Vic in Kenefick    Posted 11-22-2003 at 10:01:43       [Reply]  [No Email]
My real name is Hector and I live in New York City. I just made up the southern draw thing.

Ron,Ar    Posted 11-22-2003 at 13:53:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
Say what? Then I live in Arabia? and ron stands for rich old nigerian:^)

Newgen    Posted 11-22-2003 at 09:06:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
After reading my post I realized I forgot to tell how I got my name-Newgen is short for "New Generation", as I'm partial to the John Deere New Generation tractors, built from 1961 through 1972. And I'll bet Dave has a 1950 8N Ford {Just a guess}-:}

Dave 50 8n    Posted 11-22-2003 at 21:45:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep. Your right. 1950 Ford 8N. Fun tractor. Just another Dave, but I usually..always?...use the whole "dave 50 8n," so as not to be confused w/other Dave's.

LH    Posted 11-22-2003 at 09:09:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
LH is short for LazyHorse which the fella's I used to work with called me. So being more lazy I abbreviated to LH to avoid typing more than neccesary. (My real name is Joe)

~Lenore    Posted 11-22-2003 at 09:53:52       [Reply]  [No Email]
Lovely "luscious" Lenore
Not as self explanitory as you might think.
When I co hosted a local Rock and Roll radio show,
that was my on air name.
That was back when rock was young.
I shortened it to Lovely Lenore on another site,
cause I am not as luscious as I was back then. ;-)
On here I decided to just use Lenore.

Newgen    Posted 11-22-2003 at 16:30:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
"Luscious" is a relative term Lenore--I believe beauty comes from the inside out, not the other way around. Do you still do any DJ'ing?

~Lenore    Posted 11-22-2003 at 22:11:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
Noooo...that was back when Rock was young and I was 17, too.
It only lasted for a summer between graduation and first semester of college.
It sure was fun though,
my co host "Poppa Bop" and I had a blast that summmer.
Then I fell in love dropped out of college and got married.
