Can you help me decide on a new user name?

Asked by Val123 (12704points) June 25th, 2010

The one I have now I just created on the fly, with no thought whatsoever, because I DIDN’T PLAN ON STAYING!! But then you guys tied me up and hooked me to a ceiling fan until I decided I liked it here after all.
I know I’ll have to create another account, and I’ll start out at 0 points and will and be scorned and pilloried until I get at least get 1000 points, but that’s all OK!
Anyway, I’m having a hard time coming up with a name. Suggestions? GA’s will be counted!

Janbb will buy the winner a years worth of beer.

Just from looking at your profile.

You can always ask Auggie if you can change it. They’ve allowed it for people who make good cases :D But I like you being mommyval… Keep Val in your name.
For example: imvalandihaveahotson

@rangerr Vallerina ? :) (That’s what my Granddaughter called me when she was 2, “Gramma Vallerinna”. She was in ballet at the time!) Nah…I don’t think I like that.

Val123's avatar

@mrentropy LOL!! Me thinketh NOT!!

@chyna Hmmmm…but….that’s too close to TinyFaery (sorry if I mangled that TF!). (Where did the dancing come in BTW? I do love to dance,but I don’t think I said anything about it in my profile?)
I love cats. That’s one thing. And I’m Dutch. And Texan..

mrentropy's avatar

@Val123 I almost suggested “turniptheValium” but I doubted anyone would say it out-loud.

Val123's avatar

@mrentropy I want something with a little class!! Like Jeruba has! And JLeslie!

mrentropy's avatar

So… Not “PrincessValient?”

mrentropy's avatar

specialValentine?

Val123's avatar

Valient is a BOY’S name!! Princess Val? No…too pretentious….
@rangerr We may have to drop the Val. But I’ll still be Mom!

mrentropy's avatar

“greatValue” sounds pretty cheap.

You’d be surprised how many words don’t start with Val.

Although I’m kind of partial to using Valentine.

rangerr's avatar

@Val123 Fine. ihaveahotson will work.

mrentropy's avatar

If you’re from Southern California you can be “SoCalVal”

Valkyrie

Val123's avatar

NO @rangerr!!
@Vunessuh That would be cheating, me thinks. Even though you gave me permission to use your name in it!
@Ivan I wish! But….if you don’t know the story it sounds pretentious…..Besides, somebody already took it. When I logged on the first time I had to go with Dutchess1 or something… :( Who out there spells as badly as I do???!!!
@rebbel Huh??
Something unique….

Val123's avatar

@Kayak8 Oh! I kinda like that! But…doesn’t that have something to do with Greek hell or something? I like that tho…

Kayak8's avatar

@Val123 from wiki:

In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja “chooser of the slain”) is one of a host of female figures who decide who will die in battle. The valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin, where the deceased warriors become einherjar. There, when the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead. Valkyries also appear as lovers of heroes and other mortals, where they are sometimes described as the daughters of royalty, sometimes accompanied by ravens, and sometimes connected to swans.

@val123 trade school had me laughing out loud . . . . I originally though insulation . . .

Kayak8's avatar

What about Kilmer . . .

Val123's avatar

@Kayak8 :) Oh! I love him so!!! But if I call myself “Kilmer” they’ll think I’m a guy…

Aster's avatar

mrentropy's avatar

@jfos I like the way you think.

Val123's avatar

@mrentropy amd @jfos You guys are nuts! I’m not for sale, anyways.

@Kayak8 HA HA! I’m reading the Odyssey as we speak! I like Valkyrie but that’s a little aggressive, me thinks. Sigh. We’ll think of something!

mrentropy's avatar

libertyValence. It’s patriotic.

Val123's avatar

@mrentropy and @jfos HA HA HA!! I just got it! I stepped into the shower, and as I was doing so I said, outloud, “I want to buy a Val…..humph!...I want to buy….Wait! I want to buy a…. VAL!” AHAHAHAHAHA!! You about ruined my shower, man cause I almost fell down! That was funny!
I know. How about SlowVal. :)

marinelife's avatar

Contact @augustlan and ask if you can change your user name (and thus keep your points).

mrentropy's avatar

Now you’ve been Validated ;)

Kayak8's avatar

It was a Valiant effort indeed.

gailcalled's avatar

Valere is Latin for “be well.”

mattbrowne's avatar

Dutchess, yes. For old times sake.

Val123's avatar

Dutchess….well, it seems to be coming down heavy on that….

@gailcalled I thought it was Latin for “brave”..Valient and stuff.

gailcalled's avatar

@Val123: It’s the imperative form of valeo. You’re talking about an adjective.

valens : strong, powerful, healthy / able, worthwhile.
valeo valui valiturus : to be strong, have power, be well
valetudo : health. good health, bad health.
validus : strong, mighty, powerful, exceeding.

And these:

audacia : boldness, dash, daring, audacity.
audacter, audaciter : boldly, proudly, fearlessly.
audax : bold
audentia : boldness, courage.

Val123's avatar

Ah geez. I hate it when you talk like that @gailcalled!

gailcalled's avatar

@Val123;It’s your lucky day. Latin is a written language only these days, even for me.

What is Valiterati?

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

Literati – refers to those who love books and who are well read
I added Val to it.

Val123's avatar

O! I’ll think about this!

gailcalled's avatar

@Dr_Lawrence: (Zut, alors: it’s Val des livres)

Val123's avatar

@gailcalled What? I don’t do livers! Livers are YUCK!

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

@gailcalled That was a typo -oops! Libre = free Livre=book

Val123's avatar

What are you guys talking about??

@Valentina? Sounds so exotic and romantic.

augustlan's avatar

If you keep Val somewhere in your name (so we can still recognize you), you can keep your current account. DutchVal?

Val123's avatar

DutchVal….originally I was DutchCat, but then I got knighted “Dutchess” by a kid, long, long ago.
I like it, but it gives too much about me away me thinks…..besides, I’m sure it won’t take people long to realize that this new person is SO WEIRD she reminds me of….OH!! It’s you, Val!!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Allo! Will this work, guys?

rangerr's avatar

@I_Dutchess But… why didn’t you just keep your account…?

Dutchess_III's avatar

I don’t know! I didn’t want to trouble the mods! Besides. I’m a disciple of Zen.
