To ask what you think your MN name says about you?

ArgyMargy Sun 20-Oct-13 12:24:03

I recently got told on a thread that my nickname suggests I wouldn't offer sympathy to fellow MNers. How do you think people perceive your name as reflecting your posting style, and do you think I should change mine?

That I like Gone With The Wind?
Which I do, very much,however it just happened to be the last book I was rereading when I registered.
I lack imagination when it comes to UNs.

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sun 20-Oct-13 12:26:52

That I'm a massive cunt.

TEErickOrTEEreat Sun 20-Oct-13 12:27:24

That my niece couldn't say 'Aunty' when she was learning to talk.

Well, my regular name. This name says I am dressed for Hallowe'en.

And no, I don't think you should change yours smile

DropYourSword Sun 20-Oct-13 12:28:07

That I love The Princess Bride!

DaddyPigsMistress Sun 20-Oct-13 12:28:07

I am the other woman of a overweight incompetent pig

mignonette Sun 20-Oct-13 12:28:17

That I am little? That I like Oysters? That I have French ancestry?

SPsTombRaidingWithCliff Sun 20-Oct-13 12:28:26

I think mine suggests that Cliff Richard is an acquaintance of mine and we sometimes go n a tomb raid.

I don't think it make me very approachable grin

But it does show my posting style as I post shite, mainly lighthearted and sometimes pictures of the main man.

I dont think you should change your name. If you were to would you change it to

TotallySympatheticToAllPosters grin

KatyPutTheCuttleOn Sun 20-Oct-13 12:29:06

That I am called Katy, I like sea creatures and a drink that involves putting the kettle on smile Does what it says on the tin.....

Well if they have a problem with you, anyfucker is fucked!

Mine, I hope people realise I'm Scottish. smile

SPsTombRaidingWithCliff Sun 20-Oct-13 12:29:54

Mig I always thought your name was a colour for some reason. Like a name from a dulux colour chart! blush grin

Strumpetron Sun 20-Oct-13 12:30:12

I'm a bit of a strumpet.

I joke, I just like the word.

Dawndonnaagain Sun 20-Oct-13 12:30:23

Either that I like a bit of word play, or I'm a little slow on the uptake, now and then!

We do Glaikit, at least the Scottish ones do wink

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Sun 20-Oct-13 12:30:54

I'm a wimp

themonsteratemyspacebar Sun 20-Oct-13 12:31:47

That i have a computer monster who comes and eats various parts of my keyboard

Heartbrokenmum73 Sun 20-Oct-13 12:32:03

Mine is from six months ago when ex decided to dump me after 19 years and I went for advice on Relationships.

I do want to change mine now actually, just trying to think of something appropriate.

Argy - I loved that thread yesterday! And your name makes me think of Onion Bhaji's (food obsessed? Moi?) so please don't change it.

FairOfFaceButFullOfWoe Sun 20-Oct-13 12:32:05

I worry mine makes me look like I have quite a high opinion of myself.

Really it's based on the poem 'Mondays child' because I was born on a Monday but sometimes feel a Wednesday would have suited me more!

FadBook Sun 20-Oct-13 12:32:12

Don't change it. A nick name is just that - it's to protect anonymity.

Mine probably implies I hate Facebook when in fact the opposite is true grin I have a love/hate relationship with that social networking site - it's a 'fad' because people, IMO, create updates /photos to look interesting.

TheDietStartsTomorrow Sun 20-Oct-13 12:32:13

That I'm a greedy, procrastinating chocoholic, foodaholic actually, that thinks about dieting far too much but doesn't actually do anything about it. hmm

And that I resolve to do something about it every 2-3 days, but think I'll finish off the last few remnants of cake or that box of chocolates that's sitting on my bedside cabinet but by the time that happens, I've already bought another one.

Basically, I'm a person wih little self control. That's what it says about me.

colleysmill Sun 20-Oct-13 12:32:16

That i am too attached to the past and I know far too much than is healthy about Camberwick Green.

Colleys Mill is the name of the windmill where Windy Miller lives. smile

Pobblewhohasnotoes Sun 20-Oct-13 12:32:20

That I read a lot of children's books.

Ten points to someone who can tell me which one (without the aid of google).

mignonette Sun 20-Oct-13 12:35:05

SpS I know what you mean. Mignonnette is also a favourite flowering plant of mine with a really heavy scent. So It may well have been a paint name but is a bit too twee for Farrow & Ball. grin

DarkTherapy Sun 20-Oct-13 12:35:55

That I think internet forums are a sinister form of psychoanalysis...or I like Echobelly...the choice is yours.

aderynlas Sun 20-Oct-13 12:36:26

That I am a Bluebird.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sun 20-Oct-13 12:36:32

Not even sure what others think mine mean.

wherearemysocka Sun 20-Oct-13 12:37:04

That I can't usually find any socks. Or type.

Writerwannabe83 Sun 20-Oct-13 12:38:04

That I want to be a writer smile

ivykaty44 Sun 20-Oct-13 12:39:39

that I am 44 and my name is Ivy

But I am not 44 and my name isn't Ivy - it isn't katy either

AngelsLieToKeepControl Sun 20-Oct-13 12:40:09

That I am a massive Slipknot fan, although you probably wouldn't know that unless you were a Slipknot fan. I don't know how others perceive my name tbh.

ivykaty44 Sun 20-Oct-13 12:40:23

wherearemysocka

I thought you liked watching soccer

KittensoftPuppydog Sun 20-Oct-13 12:42:52

That I am a very soft puppy. Who can type.

WyrdSista Sun 20-Oct-13 12:43:20

That I am female.

Dawndonnaagain Sun 20-Oct-13 12:43:29

'Tis Edward Lear, Pobble.

YoureAllABunchOfBastards Sun 20-Oct-13 12:44:22

pobble yours is Edward Lear - Owl and PUssycat or Quangle Wangle's hat?

Mine says quite succinctly what I think of you all. Well, actually, it was a NC after a discussion on here in which I said if I wanted to call people a bunch of bastards I wouldn't hide behind a new name to do it. I don't really think you are bastards. Honest.

pianodoodle Sun 20-Oct-13 12:44:34

Wow! A thread started off the back of one my comments that's a first.

You do know I was only taking the piss a bit don't you?

Honestly though- I don't like the thought that anyone would actually take that as a serious criticism and dwell on it I don't post maliciously!

Mine is a mixture of my job and my dog - not very inventive smile

minipie Sun 20-Oct-13 12:45:19

Mine probably gives a cutesy slightly nethuns impression. I like to lull people into a false sense of security [evil grin]

MurderOfBanshees Sun 20-Oct-13 12:45:32

My non-Hallowe'en one apparently makes people think I am violent and a goth hater hmm Because some people are thick

FreakinRexManningDay Sun 20-Oct-13 12:50:54

That I'm awesome and have excellent taste in films.

mignonnette Sun 20-Oct-13 12:52:48

Murder

I am absolutely disgusted that your username appears to advocate violence against defenceless banshees. Why can't you come up with something fluffy? grin

GoofyIsACow Sun 20-Oct-13 12:53:28

That I am always right... wink grin

FreakinRexManningDay Sun 20-Oct-13 12:53:49

Yes like DabbingTheTearsOfMisunderstoodWailingWomen

MurderOfBanshees Sun 20-Oct-13 12:54:03

mig grin

SPsTombRaidingWithCliff Sun 20-Oct-13 12:54:06

Murder But that's exactly what you are. You kill goths, dont be ashamed. Embrace it

Mine probably suggests that I don't have much of a life beyond my child and entertaining his whims which is only partially true.

lifehasafunnywayofhelpinguout Sun 20-Oct-13 12:55:36

Long story. I used to be international love after the song.
I changed my name a few weeks ago because something happened which was very devestating for me but it also helped to sort out something else in my life. Oh I might as well not be vague and come straight out with it. I had been ttc without telling my partner I did finally get my B.F.P on 28th Sept. I told D.P I had to you can't hide something like that and he was delighted. I didn't tell him I'd planned it. I just made out it was a very happy accident. He told me he didn't think he could have children as he and his ex wife had tried for years and she now has a son to someone else but started to bleed again on 29th it was chemical pregnancy. In a way I wish I had not known I was pregnant because what I didn't know couldn't have hurt me but something told me to test and it gave me the the opportunity to find out how he feels about children and I probably would have still be hiding the fact that I was ttc so on that basis I thought of the song Isn't it Ironic because in my case life certainly did have a funny way of helping me out. We are now both ttc again and it does feel like a weight has been lifted. xx

That I am a long, furry, skinny mammal that has hyperactive tendencies but is pretty damn awesome.

ilovevenice Sun 20-Oct-13 12:55:54

... and I do. Haven't been there since the DCs arrived though. thlangry

Possibly that I like scifi
Or that I'm called Jayne
(I'm not)

DontPanicMrMannering Sun 20-Oct-13 12:57:10

That I am old enough to remember the series but not quite old enough to remember the correct phrase?

And that it was a quick NC from my usual guise and I am too lazy to switch back smile

grovel Sun 20-Oct-13 12:57:27

Mine would bore you. So sorry.

Hopasholic Sun 20-Oct-13 12:57:51

Mine is a warning that having access to Gin, an iPad and a credit card is a bad combination. grin

I need to change it to 'CutUpMyCreditCard'

I also need to get off MN as I need to be at Mils for Sunday lunch at 2pm and I'm still in my onesie dressing gown smile

damefannygallopsataghost Sun 20-Oct-13 12:58:22

That I can't be arsed to think of a new Halloween name

Hullygully Sun 20-Oct-13 12:58:42

That I am a giant spinning rollercoaster lady

which I am

chocoluvva Sun 20-Oct-13 12:59:01

That I eat a lot of chocolate. I preferred my first MN name, but felt the need to change it. I love Choccovore's name.

DarkTherapy, I nearly called myself KingoftheKerb but thought people might think I was a boy ;)

Mine might suggest I am a huge Garbage [band] fan, born in 1980 OR that I love Haribo Cherry Lips and would be capable of eating 1980 of the buggers.

Both would be true.

mycatoscar Sun 20-Oct-13 13:03:01

That I have a cat. The cat is named Oscar. wink

Reality Sun 20-Oct-13 13:04:07

That I love Arwen Evenstar and am old enough to remember My Coo Ca Choo.

I nc a lot though.

WiseKneeHair Sun 20-Oct-13 13:14:39

That one, fairly obscure, part of my body is intelligent and in sight full.

Either that, or that I have a slightly odd DS2 who once sat next to DH and stroked his knee whilst saying " oh, wise knee hair" [hgrin]

WiseKneeHair Sun 20-Oct-13 13:15:13

Insightful even!

Mintyy Sun 20-Oct-13 13:18:20

I think my name suggests that I am desperately posh (Minty being nn for Araminta) but I am not posh in the slightest. I don't know why I chose it really. I think bibbitybobbityhat suited me better.

CakeBotherer Sun 20-Oct-13 13:18:43

That I'm a huge pain in the arse.

MuseumOfHam Sun 20-Oct-13 13:19:46

That I curate historical processed meats.

Runwayqueen Sun 20-Oct-13 13:20:06

That I am the queen of runway inspections at work

MetellaEstMater Sun 20-Oct-13 13:20:17

I change mine fairly regularly and look around whichever room I'm in for ideas or go with a MN topic. So the last three:
Cocoachannel - saw the bottle of Chanel perfume on my dressing table
Yonionekanobe - the yoni thread (and evidence I can't spell the names of Star Wars characters blush)
MetellaestMater - staying at my parents' house where unbelievably my GCSE Latin textbooks are still on the bookshelf, and Metella was the mother in the Cambridge Latin course.

Mine suggests that I am very childish with a love of toilet humour hence the pun on Nelly Fertado's name.

Which is correct grin

Brices Sun 20-Oct-13 13:21:27

That I'm the sister of Jason & The Argonauts fame

Or I've watched that film too many times

I loved the bibbedy name. I used to say it out loud with the rest of the lyrics whenever I read a post you were on. Over prounouncing the "b" like Rowan Atkinson in Blackadder "Bob" episode grin

...to emphasise the above, I also have IvanaPoop on standby for my next name change grin

That I'm lying my arse off.

JamieandtheMagicTorch Sun 20-Oct-13 13:23:01

Some people have assumed I'm a man and therefore dismissed my accusations of sexism against men. Interesting.

that I'm a Game of Thrones fan. Smelly Fartardo, I love your name. A work of genius, pure genius.

That I'm a very short person who likes to ride on odd-toed ungulates...or that I like a decent play on words!

LondonNightmareInGhostlyBoots Sun 20-Oct-13 13:26:10

That I live in London and like boots. On a Halloween nc - but you may be forgiven for thinking that I am also a nightmare - I am!grin

Oh and maybe people with think I am a wee bit snarky.

FloraMcFarquhar Sun 20-Oct-13 13:29:35

Posh Scottish tottie wifie lassie.

grin at 'oh wise knee hair'
And IvanaPoop.

That I'm a bit sleep deprived maybe.......zzzzzzzzzzz

areyoubeingserviced Sun 20-Oct-13 13:39:16

That i am not being ...... serviced that is.
I am over the age of 38, as i am old enough to remember the comedy 'Are you Being Served?'

drudgewithagrudge Sun 20-Oct-13 13:53:04

Mine is what I called myself when I cleaned everything from a hopsital theatre to a nightclub to earn money to keep my teenage DH in the manner to which he was accustomed.

Now 20 years later he is about to be a father and it is payback time.

Bettercallsaul1 Sun 20-Oct-13 13:53:39

To remind everyone of one of the best TV drama series ever and stress the "black comedy" aspect.

brainwashed Sun 20-Oct-13 13:56:14

That I've not got a mind of my own.....but actually the name comes from one of my favourite albums :-)

That I am sort of princessy Barbie type flown in from Nethuns? None of which is true.

ArgyMargy Sun 20-Oct-13 13:59:47

...and this is why I love Mumsnet! Piano - don't worry, I'm over it but it just got me thinking. And the responses here have made me laugh so much it was definitely worth it. winkgrin

MrsDavidBowie Sun 20-Oct-13 14:01:13

Mine is wishful thinking.
If only grin

RandallPinkFloyd Sun 20-Oct-13 14:02:45

That I am overly fond of 90's teen movies.
As is Rex grin

Or that I am a Pink Floyd fan (I'm not)

Or that I'm a man (I'm pretty sure I'm not)

That I have a deep love of Gin & Minions as they're quite funny.

sewingandcakes Sun 20-Oct-13 14:19:52

That I like to sew and eat make cakes! Both of which are true...

DorothyMantooth Sun 20-Oct-13 14:20:46

That I am a SAINT.

That once I was on a mining expedition to the Franciscan Metamorphic Belt of the western United States, searching for a vein of minerals when I happened upon a lone patch of purply-white spherical root vegetables growing high in the hills above Santa Barbara.

It was probably a moment that changed my life. From that moment on, it became the driving force in my quest for self-improvement via the medium of Emoticon Art. On returning to Europe, I felt drawn to share my experience with other like-minded people on an online geology/vegetable growing forum - which happened to be plaugued by trollery of the very worst kind. After years wandering the wilderness of the internet, I stumbled over Mumsnet, whilst googling a remedy for scrofula.

That may be what springs to mind when MNers see my name.

It would not be true, however - I have not been further west than Aberporth and I infinitely prefer parsnips. Such is life.

WorraLiberty Sun 20-Oct-13 14:24:42

Worra loada shit!!

frangipan Sun 20-Oct-13 14:24:47

SunshineMMum Sun 20-Oct-13 14:29:49

I thought Mignonette was a Despicable me character blush Mine is a bit of a pants name change and I can't remember why I picked it.

ChaircatMiaow Sun 20-Oct-13 14:30:39

That I enjoy the company of felines and suspect they will take over the world??

ArgyMargy Sun 20-Oct-13 14:30:50

And that's how I will always think of you, Talc. Even though it is Not True (so you say...). Meanwhile I'll wait for someone to claim that turnips are orange. Expat? ScottishMummy? Anyone?

anon2013 Sun 20-Oct-13 14:31:15

That I have no imagination? wink

That I try not to take life in general, and in particular on-line forums, too seriously. For the most part anyway wink. I come on here mainly for a bit of light entertainment, but hopefully that doesn't mean that I can't be sympathetic if needed - even if my name doesn't suggest that bit!

DoctorTwo Sun 20-Oct-13 14:33:07

That I have an over optimistic view of my talent and popularity and a unique take on the English language. I liquid eyebrowsed a pizza, for instance, in honour of my only fan. Who happens to be dead. sad but [true]

That I like Breaking Bad (and love Jesse Pinkman) and it's Halloween.

TheDietStartsTomorrow Sun 20-Oct-13 14:35:11

I have a question on MN usernames: when you change your name, is it like starting all over again? So no one recognises you from previous discussions? What if you didn't want to start again and wanted to maintain whatever little identity you've developed but still wanted to change your name? Also, I'm assuming some of you who have been here a long time know each other from previous discussions, so would a name change make you anonymous all over again?

Moln Sun 20-Oct-13 14:35:20

Not a lot. Well I think it doesn't anyway!

YoureBeingADick Sun 20-Oct-13 14:38:40

Thediet- some namechanges give away who you were before (intentionally) so folk who knew you will recognise you. Otherwise you have to tell people who you were so they dont accuse you of being one of those blow-ins from nethuns grin

LittleprincessinGOLDrocks Sun 20-Oct-13 14:39:47

That I am a fan of the "little Princess" books, and that I wear a lot of gold. Neither is true. My son however is a big Little Princess fan.

floatyflo Sun 20-Oct-13 14:43:22

That my name is Flo and I am a bit ditzy?

Or a ghost. All floaty and eerie.

Of course I am not any of these!

'Cept maybe the ghost part..woooooo!

Argy - turnips are orange?

What kind of mad delusion is that?

<< consults Boy's Own Book of Root Vegetables >>

Passmethecrisps Sun 20-Oct-13 14:45:53

Swede are white and turnips are orange.

That is the law. True fact

No idea! smile

Turnips are orange! Neeps, you may call the swedes!

MurderOfBanshees Sun 20-Oct-13 14:46:56

TheDiet I always try to put my previous names in my profile or in the hover bit over my NN so people can link it back to me. Though I do tend to spend a while posting "btw I used to be Kaloki/Empusa/MurderOfGoths" just to make sure people know.

Passmethecrisps Sun 20-Oct-13 14:47:23

Turneeps.

And swedes are wee and turnips are big

Matzo Sun 20-Oct-13 14:49:44

Because I like the crackers & balls

OoozingCervix Sun 20-Oct-13 14:52:21

I am oozing. and obsessed with cervixes (cervi?)

YouTheCat Sun 20-Oct-13 14:54:44

I'd say I like cats and Terry Pratchett. It's pretty accurate.

That I am married to Terry Pratchett. I often wonder if Lyn, his actual wife, is on here and she's all MN stabby because I'm masquerading as her. grin I think they would be a MN family.

VerySmallSqueak Sun 20-Oct-13 14:57:59

I think my name suggests that I am shy,nervous and unlikely to voice my opinion.

I think you sound very boisterous and extrovert ArgyMargy and you obviously have hair like Marge Simpson.

That I have a princess complex (true) I like tea (true) and I like cake (also true). I'm a very simple person.

SugarHut Sun 20-Oct-13 14:58:54

Mine is after I heard two teenage girls sitting in a bus stop gasp as I walked past "Oh my god look at her hair, oh my god I need it, I bet she goes to SugarHut"

I was so highly amused by the sad, sad state of affairs that the pinnacle of their dream world was some shitty club in Essex that the name stuck with me smile

If you don't know that story..what does the name say about me? Chav I suspect grin

nf1morethanjustlumpsandbumps Sun 20-Oct-13 14:59:14

Promoting awareness for my son's health condition. I am a bit forgetful so used something at least I would remember.

I refuse to be drawn into a regional dispute over the turnip/swede dilemma.

Being so southern that I am practically in the Channel, I shall stick to the accepted local parlance. My greengrocer would give me odd sideward glances if I picked up one of those big orangy-purple feckers and said "please may I purchase this fine turnip?"

In fact he'd probably see me off the premises. Greengrocers take this kind of thing very seriously.

EstoyAqui Sun 20-Oct-13 15:01:05

That I am a 'Forriner'

It means I am here in Spanish and I am always shouting it out, in shops, on trains, at the park. My two have a way of wandering off then spinning around and therefore being displaced to my location.

DismemberedDwerf Sun 20-Oct-13 15:05:54

That I cannot spell 'dwarf'

usuallyright Sun 20-Oct-13 15:08:25

mine says that I'm usually right.
If it was more accurate it would be 'always right'
I might just change it.

Feminine Sun 20-Oct-13 15:09:16

Mine is a shortened version of something else.

Although I suppose it is obvious how I'd be perceived...

and that would be correct!

FayeKorgasm Sun 20-Oct-13 15:11:41

That perhaps once I pretended wink

Because I was watching Minnie now toons at the time I nec and frankly that cartoon makes me think she is.

Dunno what others think of me. Or more accurately my writing. I'm not sure I care really. Mostly I post in answer to a question so I'm posting a view which can be accepted or discarded but perhaps thought about even if only briefly....

StainlessSteelCat Sun 20-Oct-13 15:15:08

meeow?

BearsBeetsBattlestarGalactica Sun 20-Oct-13 15:21:18

Terrortree Sun 20-Oct-13 15:23:44

I am a frightening but sturdy triffid thing.

Shaky Sun 20-Oct-13 15:24:01

However, it is my RL nickname, related to my surname

Fenton Sun 20-Oct-13 15:24:57

That I own a black Labrador.

MerlotforOne Sun 20-Oct-13 15:27:57

That I have a somewhat middle class drink problem?

treaclesoda Sun 20-Oct-13 15:29:28

that I'm very fond of a particular regional bread. Which I am.

Shaky, your UN makes me think of Mr Stevens and this old house.

AngiBolen Sun 20-Oct-13 15:33:01

That I'm a feisty housewife from Brooklyn, with a dodgy past.

Hopefully it says I'm a fan of The Big Bang Theory. But it might appear as though I am frightening and weird, the sort of person who you accidentally bump your trolley into and then later that night find at your window doing a naked slow dance of terror.

needaholidaynow Sun 20-Oct-13 15:39:56

That I'd like very much to hop on a plane and get the fuck out of here. smile

Ha Talc - think I told you in a pm ages ago, I thought your name came from the fact you were a turnip farmers wife surrounded by babies and Johnson's talcum powder grin

What does my name say - that I lay around all day being miserable eating rhubarb?

Nah, I work with the London production, and people are always asking me how to pronounce it - there's your answer!

Shaky Sun 20-Oct-13 16:10:07

CosmicDespot Sun 20-Oct-13 16:19:16

Ooh I've just namechanged a couple of days ago! My old NN (BitBewildered) was how I felt when I joined, having had a rather traumatic experience. Time has passed and I am back to being a bossy know-it-all.

SeaSickSal Sun 20-Oct-13 16:25:03

That I like Sea Sick Sid and my name is Sally. That's it.

MamaBear17 Sun 20-Oct-13 16:29:48

sapfu Sun 20-Oct-13 17:15:02

Which is true.

Booboostoo Sun 20-Oct-13 17:15:17

I am "Booboos" in a variery of fora wanted to keep it so lamely added the "too" (I wonder if I first registered as "Booboos" on here only to forget about it, never seen the original "Booboos" on here).

It is supposed to be a varietion on a "booboo", as in a small injury, a word I didn't know until I went to live in the UK and then found incredibly funny (one of those things I suppose). I then Greekified it by adding the 's' and it became a nickname for pets and DP.

What I didn't know at the time is that there is a bit of a bf - ff thing going on on MN for some people and any name with a connection to boobs may be taken to relate to that.

PAsSweetOrangeLurve Sun 20-Oct-13 17:17:31

That Peter Andre really loves his kids

ArgyMargy Sun 20-Oct-13 17:22:28

But Sal, I thought it was Sea Sick Steve? Is there a Sid too?

TheDietStartsTomorrow Sun 20-Oct-13 17:25:18

Yourebeingadick and Murder - thank you.

I think, once the diet starts, (which IS tomorrow, btw, - I know, I'm a stereotypical useless dieter and you're all rolling your eyebrows at me) I'll change my nick to something that's related... TheDietsFinallyUnderway.

I know. I have a wonderful imagination.

Mummyoftheyear Sun 20-Oct-13 17:25:52

That I am either sickly arrogant or was frustrated at the time of choosing a name - and chose something in a moment of irritation.
(Latter is true ).
I really should change it but don't know how.

ProfondoRosso Sun 20-Oct-13 17:27:23

That I think I'm profound or a magician.

That I would like people to recognise me from years of posting on MN, despite not being able to use my old name grin

Tangfasticlady Sun 20-Oct-13 17:44:54

I love your name. Please don't change it.

moldingsunbeams Sun 20-Oct-13 18:09:46

Mine is because I entered loads of names and they were all taken so I picked the most random name I could.

NynaevesSister Sun 20-Oct-13 18:14:58

Mine basically tells you what my favourite series of books are and who my favourite character from that series is.

I just like jumping in puddles. grin

Annagramma Sun 20-Oct-13 18:33:23

Well, mine clearly gives the game away. He's angry, sweary and VERY LARGE...

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 20-Oct-13 19:05:08

No idea - anybody want to help me out?

At a push I'd say it suggests I'm a poncy type who likes Latin rather than plain English.

MrsOsbourne Sun 20-Oct-13 19:05:10

grin

PosyNarker Sun 20-Oct-13 19:06:32

What it actually means? It means that I fancied a NC (I've had a few names over time) and I am not particularly imaginative.

Of course you could take it to mean I'm nosy, like bunches of flowers and an a goady fucker.

I do quite like flowers, but I'm not nosy and am probably only a goady fucker after wine. Laptops should be fitted with breathalysers IMO IME

Clawdy Sun 20-Oct-13 20:29:12

Mine says I love Elvis. Lawdy...!

Pixel Sun 20-Oct-13 20:36:00

flipchart Sun 20-Oct-13 21:41:52

I don't know, I think my name is pretty neutral.

What do other think?
It was a name change.

edam Sun 20-Oct-13 21:44:11

that I'm cheesy? And potentially Dutch? (NB the latter is a little bit true, dh is 1/4 Dutch so I must be a tiny bit Dutch-by-marriage. Certainly the Mother of an 1/8 Dutch child, come to think of it.)

bebopanddoowop Sun 20-Oct-13 21:53:29

ArgyMargy Sun 20-Oct-13 22:13:12

Fecklessdizzy Sun 20-Oct-13 22:18:18

Bugger. I'm a razor-sharp evil genius who can't work a caps-lock. As you were. pathetic minions. grin

I have rather unruly mammary glands and a love of Victorian literature

"lawks-a-mussy Mr Pickwick"

smile

At least 5% of that is true

AndIFeedEmGunpowder Sun 20-Oct-13 22:21:31

Oh my goodness. DawnDonna too. blush blush blush

I might as well leave for the other side straight away.

IHaveA Sun 20-Oct-13 22:23:17

My name tells you that I am slightly paranoid...

HaHa you can't.

It's like a name change for every post but without the hassle of a name change.

Before I go... property why the capitals? <hopes this is not a taboo subject>

pigletmania Sun 20-Oct-13 22:23:32

That I love piglet from Winne the Pooh

SuperMuddle Sun 20-Oct-13 22:25:04

That I'm disorganised and ditzy, but also tall and beautiful. I'm actually not much over 5' tall and inclined to slight plumpness. Not ditzy either, but not especially organised.

Or, that I am some kind of rubbish superhero who always gets the situation mixed up and rescues the wrong person.

WallyBantersJunkBox Sun 20-Oct-13 22:31:14

That I spend far too much time watching/listening to North Norfolk Digital (North Norfolk's best music mix)

When my name was Binfullofmaggotsonthe45 I used to get told that I made peeps either:

Sing a rather annoying song constantly
Or,
Feel a little bit queasy.

<<sigh>> I miss the queasy days....

FunnyRunner Sun 20-Oct-13 22:31:31

That I look absurd when I run. It's true sadly grin

propertyNIGHTmareBEFOREXMAS Sun 20-Oct-13 22:32:30

I used to be just 'property nightmare' then changed it last Xmas for a Christmas namechange (so 'night before Xmas' got added in capitals to draw attention to the festive vibe!). I then could not be bothered to name change back plus I genuinely did once have a property nightmare very close to Xmas time so just left it. A very boring explanation, sorry!

Hassled Sun 20-Oct-13 22:35:04

Guess - go on grin.

Actually I'm usually pretty mellow these days. I was very hassled indeed when I first posted - just didn't really think long-term.

FunnysInLaJardin Sun 20-Oct-13 22:36:23

that I'm quite funny and am in the garden. Both are mostly true. I have also been to France/ live quite near France

aquashiv Sun 20-Oct-13 22:38:03

that I have zero imagination when it comes to these things.

BigOrangePumpkin Sun 20-Oct-13 22:38:39

That I'm a fat woman with a tan. And I am neither. Not that there is anything wrong with either of those things grin

AndIFeedEmGunpowder Sun 20-Oct-13 22:40:54

Aah thank you! Didn't know if the capitals were a mumsnet 'thing'

(Or in fact if it was another pun that I was too thick to get.)

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Sun 20-Oct-13 22:42:55

I think antlers are an aesthetically pleasing choice of décor???

Not really, the bizarre lyric has always amused me.

Broodymomma Sun 20-Oct-13 22:59:56

That despite years of Ivf my longed for second baby was never to be. Must change this username now as our new adopted angle arrives next week. From broodymomma to happymomma

SirChenjin Sun 20-Oct-13 23:00:57

Ahhh - that's fantastic news Broody!! smile

AliaTheEvilLeaper Sun 20-Oct-13 23:01:15

That I'm a sci fi geek and love the progamme that my namesake appears in. smile
Anyone else know where it's from and who I am?! No googling lol

FannyFifer Sun 20-Oct-13 23:02:21

That I'm from Fife and I'm a fanny. grin

That I like weird food combinations?

Actually it is partly baby nn's of 2 of my DC and the 'orange' was added in for a campaign on here re childhood cancer, and never got taken out again.

DorothyMantooth Sun 20-Oct-13 23:06:39

That's lovely Broody, congratulations!

LiegeAndLief Sun 20-Oct-13 23:06:43

Oh! Metella est mater, was the dad called Caecilius? Having terrifying flash back to Latin lessons I had very much forgotten.

Mine will probably tell you that I like Fairport Convention a lot, but only if you do too.

TooTabooToBOOOOO Sun 20-Oct-13 23:07:02

I've no idea what people think when they see my NN.

I don't even know what it means. I do like the sound and flow of it though.

YoniTime Sun 20-Oct-13 23:08:24

That I was once trendy but then couldn't be bothered to change name into something currently trendy.

Mummyoftheyear Sun 20-Oct-13 23:08:56

Broody , that's lovely. Xxx

BlingBang Sun 20-Oct-13 23:11:51

Interesting - so what does my name mean to other posters?

Name change so this is just one of many and is a quote from the main character in a more I liked. The way he says it just made me LOL.

BlingBang Sun 20-Oct-13 23:12:28

In a 'movie'.

Nessalina Sun 20-Oct-13 23:14:19

Not too sure what people think of mine? Perhaps that I'm a teensy Scottish monster?
It's actually a name I made up for my main World of Warcraft character. So there, I'm a massive geek! wink
It's a name that does everything I like in a girls name actually, it's unusual, feminine, and has nice nicknames (ness, nessa)! Unfortunately as it will forever be to me the name of an ass-kicking frost Mage, I doubt I'd use it for a babe of my own (should I be lucky enough to have one), but anyone else is welcome to it! wink

GinFirstQuestionsLater Sun 20-Oct-13 23:14:58

That I have my priorities right?

Nombrechanger Sun 20-Oct-13 23:34:07

That I am Spanish and change my name a lot. I am not Spanish and I don't change my name a lot.

Dawndonnaagain Mon 21-Oct-13 01:14:38

Name in Spanish is llamo!

That I have a sea view... not exactly inventive!

HumpdaySelfie Mon 21-Oct-13 02:06:53

I worry you might think it's masterbatory. It's not.

And I'll change it again soon enough anyway.

elQuintoConyo Mon 21-Oct-13 05:42:25

'Name' in Spanish is 'nombre', 'I call myself' is 'me llamo'.

Anyhoo, I guess my name shows I'm Spanish and a bit lost. And sweary. (El quinto coño = the fifth cunt = the middle of nowhere/the back of beyond). Coño doesn't have the same caché in Spanish as cunt does in English, more like 'fuck'.

I like the sound and flow of it. I'm not Spanish. I swear a bit - although have stopped recently once DS started to parrot 'oh bollocks' back to me from another room blush

MyBaby1day Mon 21-Oct-13 08:13:44

It says I will have my baby one day and I will (via adoption) smile. Love my MN username!.

that I am a vegetarian <<not for 18 years I am not, though I was for 14 - check out my age!>

that I am a new Zealander <<untrue>>

or just no idea

NynaevesSister Mon 21-Oct-13 09:18:53

I would have said kiwi! Did you live in NZ for a while or know someone who did?

waikikamookau Mon 21-Oct-13 09:21:16

no, no kiwi's. just I thought it was a clever name, and it the same for a vegetarian restaurant in Brighton.
but I certainly don't mind the new Zealand connotations. grin

waikikamookau Mon 21-Oct-13 09:21:38

name of a restaurent

That I'm busy!
I get a surprising amount done in my "spare" time (odd 5 minutes here and there), I can even put a wash on, make dinner and sort out sport kit/homework while MNing.
Username implication is that I can probably offer you advice at some point, it might not be timely or in-depth, but I like to help if I can.

Balaboosta Mon 21-Oct-13 09:46:57

Mine means "ruler of the domestic domain" or matriarch in Yiddish! When i picked it, i was concerned that, like yours, it sounds a little combative but then I am often a bit - er - direct so nothing wrong with that I reckon! Don't go changing.

KhunZhoop Mon 21-Oct-13 09:49:14

My name is a reflection of what I think mumsnet actually is.

I am an occasional name changer who keeps a theme (the Horry bit, the lead in a book I like which was our book club book the week I needed a swift nc for outing reasons). To follow the theme you need to have read the book as she is aristocratic so uses several. I have some others in the theme saved for future use.

I nced to this as a not-very-subtle BFP announcement in a quiche.

So it looks like I'm pgy-obsessed whereas actually I'm too superstitious to remove the pgy reference until I'm not pg any more (am term now).

It also means people assume I am hormonal/irrational (probably true) and give me the benefit of the doubt.

The nn I nc from, which I loved, was more combative and I definitely got different responses to the same opinions.

HorseyGirl1 Mon 21-Oct-13 12:19:47

Probaby that I'm a posh gal that owns many horses - not a one in fact - it was my late dad's nickname for me when I was wee and horse-mad.

MarmaladeBatkins Mon 21-Oct-13 12:22:27

That I am effing marvellous.

And you'd all be right.

TheBigJessie Mon 21-Oct-13 13:11:22

<gets DawnDonna>
<gets *SirCherjin>

Ooooooooh...

However, it turns out I'd overly complicated TheJoyfulPuddlejumper's name. I thought it was a Stargate Atlantis reference!

TheBigJessie Mon 21-Oct-13 13:20:22

I suppose my name suggests that I am large but disproportionately timid.

Or simply a large Jessica.

I'm more medium-sized, and I heard the phrase once, and thought it was funny.

Plus, I really wished I'd been called Jessica as a child.

twoboysundertwo Mon 21-Oct-13 13:35:11

that I'm a crazy bitch who had 2 children within one year...

GruffBillyGoat Mon 21-Oct-13 14:10:16

That I'm cranky and my nickname is Bill.

That I am the keeper of the ancient and powerful word - "Ni!"

And I like to scare old people by mercilessly saying "Ni!" at them.

I guess it says that I have a childish sense of humour, but am clearly old enough to remember Monty Python?

Should I name change? I always go with a comical name. But then, I'm not the most comical of posters.

NeverKnowinglyUnderstood Mon 21-Oct-13 15:02:20

that I spend too much money at a particular store

2tired4internets Mon 21-Oct-13 15:06:47

Ni! Don't change it!

I recently changed to this because it is the truth. Please forgive my sloppy posts I'm too internet addicted to log out.

JackShit Mon 21-Oct-13 15:23:11

Nothing grin

2tiredtocare Mon 21-Oct-13 15:28:12

Now our nicknames are very similar 2tired hope you don't have any inflammatory views that could be mistaken for mine!

2tired4internets Mon 21-Oct-13 15:32:32

Err same!

2tired4internets Mon 21-Oct-13 15:35:48

Anyway when I changed I hadn't see you nickname before but I'm sure people will be able to tell us apart!

Pendeen Mon 21-Oct-13 15:55:29

My favourite has to be DaddyPigsMistress - the other woman of an incompetent fat pig. grin

Waikika - I did wonder if you owned the resturant!

UriGHOULer Mon 21-Oct-13 16:28:17

Im a Spoonbender. A Clockbreaker. A crazy blowdried mindreader.

I might change it to MyLovelyMike in honour of my favorite character in Breaking Bad.

Ni, please don't change your name! "Ni" was DD's first word, still used frequently as an expression of annoyance (she's 7mo). I like to think she's quoting classic comedy rather than making random noises grin

BlackholesAndRevelations Tue 22-Oct-13 10:10:47

I love everlong too, it's probably my all time favourite song (think I've said that to you before!)

Mine = I like Muse. But the longer I've had it as a nn, the deeper the meaning has become! Somehow I've managed to link it to having pnd after dc2, and various other stuff.
