Explain why did you choose your Users Name/Geocaching name

Recommended Posts

My name, mathogre, is part of a complete anagram (Evil Math Ogre Kgh Ra) of my Real Life Name.  I'm also a mathematician, er, that's really Mathemagician. ;)  I sling equations and craft epic algorithms.  Years ago I belonged to the Institute of Navigation, and remember reading a paper about the relativistic effects regarding the clocks on the GPS satellites.  (It was actually very interesting!)

Since my first name is Robin, several years ago, I chose Robin Hoody as my "alter ego/adventure" name. One of my many nicknames is "Robin Hood". Also, I usually am wearing a hoody when it's cold instead of wearing a heavy jacket. Plus I love the ring "Robin Hoody" has.

My username is a hat tip to the three computer geek conspiracy theorists who occasionally helped Mulder and Skully on the X-Files TV series, from the 90's.

Create a username: in our case it was the pressure, then panic...

 

Barb and Keith - Hunters of Geocaches now we hunt waymarks and rarely geocache anymore. Though I do use Geocaching as a resource for finding waymarks.

The Federal Government assigned it to me.  Under international treaties,  I am, by law, the only person with this username in the world  😉

Heidi is one of my favorite children books, and Schwanli is one of her Grandfathers goats. I dropped the "ch" a while ago for some log in to some site that already had a schwanli, and have been signing in as swanli4 ever since. 4 is my favorite number, and so happens to be how many children I have.

A very long time ago, when the internet was young, and instant messaging was becoming popular. I needed a name to create an account, I was young, and creating a "username" was unfamiliar to me. I chose for the instant messaging application to pick my name for me. In a set of 4 randomly generated names, The_Platinum_Tugboat appeared. 

It was soooo random, I just HAD to pick it. To think.. a computer, without the aid of a human, could come up with such a random name amazed me, and still does to this day.
