Explain why did you choose your Users Name/Geocaching name

318 posts in this topic

Oops... I misspelled Geocaching on the heading of this post but I could not edit it so, I corrected it here. :signalviolin:

 

I use this name ( IGotADisneyJeep ) because I Got A "Disney Jeep" :mmraspberry:

Had no choice. My mother gave it to me when I was a baby and the legal hassles and expense did not seem worth it to change.

This topic has been brought up before, but I doubt you will find it now. My caching name comes from the old Night Stalker television series starring Daren McGavin. I figured there was a parallel between geocaching and the series since he was always running around looking for monsters and nobody knew they were real. We run around looking for "tresures" and muggles never know they are right under their noses either.

My friend chose it. We shared this account for a heartbeat and since I was maintaining it I took it over it and now he has a new user name.

 

The name itself comes from a few different stories.... none of which are appropriate to share.

Mine used to be my name, but wasnt sure of the community around here and if that was a good idea or not so I changed it. Rumor has it there are a lot of strange people searching around at night for items that may or may not exist and have nothing but a piece of paper in them. Oh wait.. I am one of those strange people now. (Egg=part of my name)

 

Me and my Geokids.. (ages 11,8,6).

I'm a cat lover as is my caching partner. I am shorter so I am Popoki Iti - Hawai'ian for Little Cat. The other Popoki is Popoki Nui - Big Cat.

Mine didn't feel very creative at the time...but I am glad I chose it.

 

I am a cat lover, with two cats of my own, and I currently live with three more (yes, I live with a total of five cats). On of my kitties is named Matilda the Russian Spy (my other cat is Secret Agent Sam). :signalviolin: Matilda is a very fluffy itty-bitty-kitty, and from the back she looks like she is wearing pantaloons. :mmraspberry:

Her nickname is Matilda Pants, or Miss Pants, or a thousand variations of that.

 

SO...I am MatildaPants, because she would cache if she could, and she is always with me on the computer. Like I said, not very creative, but there it is.

 

MatildaPants FTW!

Mine is from the song 'The Happy Wanderer' - classic

 

Some lyrics from it - 'I love to go a-wandering, Along the mountain track, And as I go, I love to sing, My knapsack on my back.'

 

apart from the singing quite descriptive :signalviolin:

Mine stems from the two things I use and love most (minus people). I spend a lot of time in the cockpit, I spend a lot of time with my guns. The time with both has gotten a little smaller since geocaching came around though...

My parents are from Finland (a chilly country, summers are short), yet I hate the cold and often complain when it temps drop too low. One of my friends heard me complaining once and said, "relax NordicMan" it's not that cold out..

 

..and the name stuck :signalviolin:

I chose Kesara because it means "young and young at heart" and that is how I feel. I feel younger than I am and my hubby is younger than me so it kinda fits who I am.

 

Him on the other hand, just wanted something cool and that flowed with my name...

I made this one so people would think of geo caching, or at worst think it was go caching. Either way it had caching in it.

Having just crashed on my mountain bike and breaking my arm and a few teeth ( OK, 9 of them ) I was sitting around bored, not working. I broke down and bought a my first PC. My cousin was over signing me up for AOL ( are they still around? ) and trying to pick a screen name. After a few failed attempts I was talking to my other cousin about what had happened to me and I jokingly said I be crashing ( its hard to talk with front teeth missing ) and he typed in IBcrashen. Used it on most online things since. I almost changed it to IBgeocaching for here but.....

Took up fly fishing a few years ago and was an awful caster. I'm better now but never bothered to change the name.

Dream of the Archer is a song of Heart's 1977 Little Queen album. I changed it from being a dream about an archer, if one is to take even that literally, to being a person, Dream Archer.

Mine is a fusion of my two favorite hobbies--lomography and geocaching, hence, lomocacher. Lomography is a photography style that uses toy and vintage cameras, and I often take my cameras with me while I cache.

Andronicus, as is Titus Andronicus from the Shakespeare play. After watching the version with Anthony Hopkins, I thought it was super cool. That is when I changed my online Aliase form 'Time' to 'Androniucs'.

It's the name of the song I was listening to on a compilation CD when I created my account! Plus I drive a Volkswagen. I did start buying VW keychains to leave as signature items in caches but that novelty soon wore off.

 

I keep thinking of changing it but after 4 years and 800+ finds it's kinda stuck!

When I started caching, I lived in Flagstaff, AZ. The residents of Flagstaff shorten the name to Flag. I am a gal and I use to reside in Flagstaff. Hence the name Flaggal

Because I really am a dolphin! I've been using this name since the days of bulletin boards where everyone used 'handles' (based on CB radio).

Nick (my grandson) found the first cache by accident (or not, he finds things. LOTS of things). Then he wanted to go look for more so we Made an account and started finding them on purpose. Since we were in a hurry (it was getting pretty late in the day) and he's Nick and calls me Papa that's what we decided to use.

My childhood nickname is Twitch (because my nose twitches subconsciously like the girl in Bewitched) and I like trees and plants. Twitch Likes Botany was kind of hokey so I picked Twitch Hugs Trees. It's quick to type and I can abbreviate it with THT.

 

Usually, my usernames are some variation of "Egypt Girl" since I want to be an Egyptologist, but THT works better with the outdoorsy activity of Geocaching.

I chose my Geocaching name because it's a joint account for my fiance and me. I changed the name to Yin and Yang when we decided to have a joint account instead of two separate ones.

 

After my fiance and I started dating we both found we began to believe in soul mates. We also found we had an interesting thing going on - I was enamored with the Phoenix and he was enamored with the Dragon. As it turns out, with me searching for info before getting my Phoenix tattoo, there is a TON of mythology out there (in Asian culture) that presents the Dragon and Phoenix as two parts of a whole and also likens them to the yin-yang.

 

I did more researching into the yin-yang and after a while it began to be sort of a strong symbol of our love for each other and our relationship. Since then I began to refer to him as the Yang to my Yin and he began to refer to me as the Yin to his Yang. Like the yin-yang we find that we complete each other and that we are two parts that make a whole. I made wire wrapped pendants for us, like those old fashioned heart necklaces but in the shape of the two halves of the yin-yang. Ever since all that it's been a matter of me being Yin and him being Yang, hence the name Yin and Yang.

I've had mine as an email or forum handle since I first created a user name. Country singer Joe Diffie has a country song called Pick-up Man in which he sings: "There's just somethin' women like about a pick-up man". Well since I have been old enough to drive, I've owned a pickup truck, and my first new truck was a 1998 (also the year I graduated) it just fit. (No. I can not help you move)

 

Considering changing it to Team Pickupman to indicate my wife and daughter are always with me and we all use this account.

This name came up when I was looking through my atlas type book and saw how many exports of precious gems came from near the Nile River. I thought about how since they were so valuable, they were the "fruit of the Nile". I rushed to the computer and entered this name as my username, and been using it ever since. B):lol:
