SCREEN NAME IS MORE THAN AN ALIAS

Recommended Posts

Mine's boring.

 

GcDrovers - Gc stands for Geocaching and Drover is my last name. And since we're a family I put Drovers.

 

Theres my life story.

Mine started out as a nickname at school after an incident with me being covered in spray glitter at Christmas.

The people that thought it would be funny to spray my with glitter ended up with me showing one of my fingers to them and I ended up being called sparklefinger. <_< it's stuck but I have since changed it to sparklefingers

My name represents my personality. Like Indiana Jones I like to seek out for new adventures. :)

Using French pronunciation rules, "beauxeault" is pronounced "bozo." I'm not French, and I'm rarely if ever a clown (at least on purpose). But I chose the name because it's a slightly self-deprecating way to make fun of the French language's affinity for waaay too many letters in a word. In the case of "beauxeault," the excess is 150% (or, 2 1/2 TIMES the minimum number of letters needed).

Most in my generation could deduce the origin of my name with a glance at my avatar. It's a twist on Devo's signature song, "Jocko Homo" ("Are we not men?"). My name is Paul, but Pablo fits better.

For several years I worked for the EGIA (Equitorial Guinea Intelligence Agency) under the name James Bond. This worked great until two things happened. 1) Being a white guy in Equitorial Guinea with little knowledge of the local language makes a spy stand out quite a bit and 2) Somebody there actually saw a James Bond film (I think it was "On Her Majesty's Secret Service); that went a long way towards blowing my cover. The powers that be decided that it was then time to retire me. They set me up in the global intellegence community's equivalent of the witness protection program under the name "Smith" in central Nebraska.

 

Or maybe I dreamed that and my name really is Smith and I have always lived in Nebraska. I forget.

One of my other interests outside of Geocaching is Micronations and how they run. I actually had an opportunity to tour one of these micronations a few year back called "Sealand." I paid 30 pounds to become a (non-binding) "Lord" of this little nation and now represent it in Geocaching!

 

"Rovers" I think because I wanted a name that meant wandering around and I searched some football team names. I could have just as easily made my name "Sealand Wanderers" if I spotted that word first.

I would think that ANY PART of Nebraska would suffice....

My husband is retired army, who early in his training took a Ranger course. They wore caps that had reflective bars stitched to the back of their caps, which would glow at night. He tells me that when out in the woods at night, one could see these "eyes" bobbing around from the soldiers ahead of them. He enjoyed his Ranger training time and wanted to use the term, Ranger Eyes as our geocaching name. I designed a logo for us, which you see as our avatar. I also made a wooden signature token with this logo on it (the back side has a leaf "patch") and have just now started dropping in the caches we find.

Brutemus and friends was the name of my old business on etsy. Now I just use brutemus as my username for most things, like Instagram. I like it. It's an old nickname. It came from the word brute.

First name is Gregg which morphed into Greggor. One St Patrick Day it became McGreggor. I added my birth year of 57 and the user name McGreggor57 has served me well across several forums. Often I shorten it to McG57.

Mine started out with Yooperdude and me, but after finding the Yooper dude somewhat useless to geocaching I changed it to 4thnoel since I am the 4th child of the most wonderful set of parents.

My username was a random mashing of "Autistic" and "Major". Although the first part is significant to me, the second part is less so.

Mine is pretty self explanatory - I'm from CA(lifornia), I enjoy my Vino, and I'm female!  VinoGal was already taken, so I added the CA and that worked!

In the late 60's, I lived down the shore, near Asbury Park.  Loved the boardwalk.  Put down a quarter, they spin the wheel.  If you had the right number, you won a prize.  I loved the stuffed dolphins!  Got several of them.  One was named Harry.  When I started hiking in the 90's, I ended up following that white trail out of New Jersey.  In ten years, I section hiked half the AT.  When you stay at shelters, or reach the tops of mountains, you signed with your Trail Name.  So, mine was Harry Dolphin.  When I started geocaching in 2004, my Trail Name came with me.  I still consider it a 'trail name'.
