What inspired your fluther screenname?

Asked by nayeight (3347points) July 27th, 2008 from iPhone

I find some of the screennames on the site pretty interesting and was just wondering what the inspiration for them was. By the way, my screenname is just the last four letters of my first and last name, Jea(naye) Wr(ight). I thought it was cool because it spelled eight somewhere in there and I always liked the number eight….

@ shrubbery, that question was pretty intense. A good 1/2 was removed by fluther moderators, haha! Thanks for posting it though. I did search for it but I typed in screenname instead of name….

Umm, mine was inspired by Shia LaBeouf, weirdly enough.

shrubbery's avatar

yeah I remembered it as soon as I saw your question cause it was intense as you said! ah well, it’s good you asked again cause there’s lots of new people since then

My birth month, followed by my initials

crunchaweezy's avatar

It’s a name I use for everything else (Xbox Live, PSN, etc)

If I remember correctly, it was some catch phrase in a Taco Bell commercial a while back and it was something like “Crunchy”, “Cheezy” and “Easy?”

Um. I’m not quite sure about the history of my name since it’s the same name I’ve used since I started playing Tribes 2 in 7th grade. If I had to guess, then it would probably be a combination of my initials and my favorite 3 digit fictional character.

It’s a weird combination of my first and last name.

Really easy to remember.

@susanc: I assumed Susan was your name.

Skyrail's avatar

It’s a name I have been using for a couple of years now and to be honest I pulled it out of thin air. I needed an individual name handle for gaming, forums and sites so I decided Skyrail would fit the bill. I also use a few others when my first choice is taken. It’s funny really, because about 6 months later I began playing one of the Bond games again (James Bond) and one of the multi player missions is called Skyrail, but my name is no link to that ;)

Randy's avatar

My inspiration comes from, well…… Hahaha. Not very original. but very easy to remember.

my name when I play fantasy football. My team is the Gators. I was the only girl on our league, so everyone called me Mzgator, and it stuck. For fantasy football it is spelled…mzg8r!

SuperMouse's avatar

@lefteh, I always thought you were left handed!

My usual screen-name is House Mouse (childhood nickname), but I didn’t want to be recognized (by my sister, a dedicated Flutherer) when I posted my first question, so I went with something totally out of left field. I’m still trying to figure out how I can change the name to House Mouse, but I am NOT willing to sacrifice my hard earned lurve to do it!

flameboi's avatar

I used to explode for every little thing when I was in middle school (very, very bad temper) as fast as a lighter! so people started calling me flameboy, and I had it on my soccer jersey and my bmx jersey, I’ve been called flameboy for like 15 years now, I love it, but only my closest friends are allowed me to call me like that, and I use it everywhere :)

Somebody once said to me: “you’re such a scamp!” because of my devilish sense of humor, and it stuck!

tinyfaery's avatar

It’s an email name I have been using for years. Had I thought about it more, I would have picked something else. It just doesn’t fit me anymore.

MacBean's avatar

@girlofscience—Legal name change.

girlofscience's avatar

@MacBean: That’s what I figured. What inspired you to legally change your name? Did you change your first name as well? How did you decide on your new name(s)?

MacBean's avatar

@girlofscience—Long, complicated, personal story. I’ll send you a private message about it shortly!
