DontCallMePeanut Tue 31-May-11 06:00:51

Just being curious, really. We don't get too many (eg) xxFreddiesMummyxx's on here, which I have seen on other forums. And so far, not noticed any Lucy R(3104703) a la Netmums. So, would anyone like to share their name choosing stories?

Mines taken (rather unimaginatively) from a song title, Don't Call Me Peanut by Bayside.

ILoveThinLizzy Tue 31-May-11 06:03:56

After a few hit and miss, I settled on ILoveThinLizzy - because I do. My best song in the whole wide world (as my 6yo niece would say) is "I'm still in love with you" by ThinLizzy.

It's not close to RL name, not confrontational, not arsy, not in your face.......just tame smile

Mine is a quote from Russell Howard's show 'dingledodies' which I watched recently.

Wabbit Tue 31-May-11 06:23:48

After DS's birth father (gah... choke... bleurrgh) revealed he was living a double life with another woman who was currently pregnant whilst DS was still but 4 months old.... I felt like a 'wabbitintheheadlamps' which was my nomdemumsnet until I got my act together... then I was just wabbit, but wabbit was already taken so I was wabbitt until another (littlelapin) MNer who had bought wabbit in a MN auction of unused names donated me the name... out of the kindness of her heart. smile

Tee2072 Tue 31-May-11 06:27:25

Tee is what my niece called me when she was learning to talk. We think it was short for Auntie.

She's now 11 and everyone calls me Tee.

I could tell you what the 2072 means, but then...well, you know the rest. ::taps nose::

Clytaemnestra Tue 31-May-11 06:54:49

My dad fought a long and bitter battle with my mum to call me Clytaemnestra before I was born. He lost (fortunately) but I quite like it on here.

duckdodgers Tue 31-May-11 07:05:34

Usually I get mine from song titles or lyrics. This one is from a Kasey Chambers song.

I have a lot of hats. Really, lots.

ScaredOfCows Tue 31-May-11 07:28:01

Because I am scared of cows, after an unfortunate and scary incident involving cows and a cliff face.

A few Christmasses ago my DP bought me a toy reindeer on a keychain as a joke present because it was so awful looking. We decided he didn't have the right to be called Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and call him Ralph the Christmas Gnu. It just popped into my head when I joined Mumsnet.

RustyBear Tue 31-May-11 07:32:06

This is the original Rusty Bear he is about 3.5" tall and was made for me by my mum to take to school in my pocket on my first day. He was originally a deep rusty red colour, but years of getting washed in my pocket have made him paler, and the darker brown patches are darns from when he got attacked by moths. He will be 50 years old in September.

I chose mine because it looks like an owl.

2blessed2bstressed Tue 31-May-11 07:48:52

I saw mine written on a sign in a gift shop when we were on holiday. It's ironic - cos I'm not smile

pallymama Tue 31-May-11 07:49:59

I play world of warcraft, there I've said it! My friends in the game called me "pally" as my main character was a paladin. When I was pregnant, it became "pallymama". grin
