With the Christmas shopping now in full swing and AIBU full to the brim with Am I Being Unseasonables - we though it was time to dust off our Christmas jumpers nicknames and display them in true MN poncetastic style and invite you to show yours off too. <twirls> blush

Please post with your new nickname below and include your normal nickname in your post and we will enter you into our name change competition.

We will have a dig around in the cupboards for a prize for the best name change.

You have until Thursday 6th to post with your festive name and we will devise a shortlist with a poll for everyone to vote for their favourites on Friday 7th.

We will leave the poll up over the weekend and announce the winner on Monday 10th.

Good luck everyone grin

I do think some of the better names were missed off tbh but one of the ones that made me smile was there and that got my vote.

Yes, some of the better names were deffo left off.

I may sound bitter and that is because I am but why have you shortlisted some names that bear absolutely no resemblance whatsoever to the original poster?

FanjoTimeMammariesAndWine Fri 07-Dec-12 19:49:02

There were about 100 good names IMO really, all the ones in shortlist are good smile

I knew mine was crap.... bah humbug

LikeAVirginMary Fri 07-Dec-12 22:10:21

Mintyy - are you referring to me?

BOFingSanta Fri 07-Dec-12 22:12:04

I thought the relation of your Christmas name to your usual one was clever, LikeAVirginMary, if not immediately obvious.

LikeAVirginMary Fri 07-Dec-12 22:40:23

Thank you, BOFingSanta. I did want to be simply LikeAVirgin but sadly someone used that as a name change once a couple of years ago so I was denied!

Likeavirginmary, I love your name. I voted for it.

Oh my GOD!!! I've actually made the line up grin woo hooo!!!
Vote for me someone! I'll be soooooooooo embarrassed if I don't get a vote! <sneeks off to see if I can vote for myself blush>

<Sneaks back in whistling and looking furtive>

<Realises that I spelled sneaks wrong before!>

LikeAVirginMary Sat 08-Dec-12 20:53:07

Thank you, ChoirOfAngels!! Much appreciated!

ChippingInAWinterWonderland Sat 08-Dec-12 22:12:03

I voted for you Solo - I was the first one! I thought it was brilliant and I thought loads of people would follow my brilliant lead, but apparently they just aren't clever enough. Good Luck smile

GoodKingWenSOLOslas Sun 09-Dec-12 01:11:04

Aw shucks! ChippingIn thanks! ah well...made the shortlist and I'm dead chuffed about that and not bitter at all that I'm not going to win...

YulePutTatOnMyChristmasTree Sun 09-Dec-12 12:29:55

when I was Fruitshootsandheaves I could never think of anything witty to change to
