Geocaching names & team names.

Recommended Posts

I enjoy reading all the entries in the forum. I really like the unique and individual names used by everyone. My question is...how did you come up with your "screen name", "code name", "team name", or "cache name" (or whatever you want to call it)? Mine just seemed to drift from one techno gadget to another. In the olden days of the CB, my "handle" was PHANTOM. THen it migrated to screen names in chat rooms, forums and instant messaging. It just seemed right to continue to use it in geocaching. Just curious. icon_rolleyes.gif

...mine, read my profile. Kinda similar to your story, once started the name just migrated to whatever activity currently has my attention.

I used to be known as "Cybeq". The name comes from a particular brand of automation I work on. But it seemed wrong to copy a company name for this so I just made up Geo Quest on the spur of the moment. I think it sucks but I guess it makes a better gecaching handle than Cybeq.

My screen name is "irresisti" it has been for a couple of years now..


Before i went by the screen name "Simply Irresistible" but after a while i thought the name didn't fit anymore i had to find something more original and i just cut of the word "Simply" and shorted irresistible to "irresisti"


Thats where how i got the name..

Uh, mines my name.


I've used screen names in the past, but came to the conclusion that I'd rather people call me by my name. Like if I were at a party, I wouldn't meet someone and say "Hi, My name's GeoSearcher."


Way back in the day when I first started getting online with my Commodore 64 and BBS's, I initially used the screen name "Jamie."


After a while I wanted something a little more spicy, I decided to go with Terminator (yeah, like that fits my personality icon_rolleyes.gif ) so, I lightened it up by changing it to "Term'nator" which was a reference to the terminal programs we used on the Commie to dial up the BBS's.

When my step kids where little I made up this caracter called BOB I used to draw it out for them it looked like my avatar but it didn't look like a vampire.As they grew older BOB changed to Vampirebob and now he looks like a vampire.A few years ago I took it as my web address.Then when I started geocaching it evolved into Geovamp


I would follow my GPS to the gates of Hell if it pointed that way.

Well my Maiden name is Pepper, and my husband IS a SuperGenius. His coworkers gave it to him shortly after he arrived in CA for his new job. It stuck and we use it for everything, so it just seemed right to include in our geocaching.

I am a web host. I have been designing web pages since before the dot com explosion. I now teach web design at a vocational school. I have a small company that hosts many sites. Also, I am a Christian. I like wordplay and one day came up with a play on words that would describe those two. Actually, Heavenly Host is a catholic term, which I am not, but the play on words is still there. It is another way of letting people know about my faith without forcing anything on people. Sort of a 'If you know it, you'll recognize it, but if you don't, you won't' kind of thing.

I used to use drum as a login/chat name, as my name is Dru Morgan and that was the first initial of my last name. I was with an ISP called loop.com for a while. My email was drum@loop.com and people thought I was a musician into drum loops.

Well I used my name waynepdx when I first came on here...but am in the process of changing it to Syn...


Originally in bbs days I was known as Syndicate...then I shortened it to Syn Sin


Then Just syn...that is why I am using syn aka waynepdx.


Letting people get used to the change so they dont go and start deleting my found logs when they read the log book and say who is Syn and why has he never signed the logbook.

Mine is from my time as a Flight Engineer on C-141B StarLifter Special Ops, I also worked in SO supply and we were able to "get things" as needed. I just kept it. The symbol is something else altogether......



What is the price of experience, do men buy it for a song,

Or wisdom for a dance in the street.................

I guess our team name is pretty obvious...


We love GADGETS: PDA's, digital cameras, ham radio gear, and my home-based work computer is loaded with all kinds of gadgets for my business. When GPSR's came out it was a natural progression to get one and find an excuse to use/play with it, even though I found many excuses through the years NOT to buy one... then Geocaching came along. I was trying to think of a GC-related domain name and viola! GeoGadgets Team was born.


In the CB radio and BBS days of my wild and crazy youth I was the 'Queen Of Hearts', but as I get older that name just doesn't FEEL as appropriate as it did when I was in my early twenties and childless. Now, I live in the Redwoods and I have always had redhair... RedwoodRed fits better, even if I am commonly mistaken for a male of the species in chat rooms and the places where I trade porn... just kidding!.


Ask Steak N Eggs sometime how he got his handle... now THAT is an interesting tale!

When I first got on the 'net my AOL username was Casel98. Casel is my middle name and 98 was the year.


I used to chat in a chatroom for a hiphop radio show based in Florida. Whenever the DJ would read the names of everyone in the chatroom he thought the L was the number 1. = Case one-ninety-eight.


I got tired of correcting him, so I officially changed it. Plus, I think Case_198 sounds cooler!





P.S. I really need to change my avatar.....

Ive been known as the Mudfrog for years now because of my liking for 4x4s and playing in the mud. Its been my CB handle for years and yes, i still have a citizens band radio in all of my vehicles.


Chicken is a little pet name for my wife of course and shes also had that for years.


Hhmmmmm, just couldnt figure out how to add Geo to either one of them and make them sound right!

Mine comes "initially" from my initials (pun impuned) - Mark Anthony Johnson. I added the IC when I was in the Air Force as a 32172Q (F4E Radar Technician.) I used to sign the inside of the F4E Radomes as "Radar fixed by MAJIC! - Majicman 1976 (or whatever year.)


Ever since then, I have been majicman (The IC originally stood for "Incorpoated Corporation" as an Oxymoron to go with the intentional misspelling of "magic".)


Anal-retentive and verbose...




Always trade UP in both quantity and quality and Geocaches will be both self-sustaining and self-improving!

Easy! This one is in honor of the Leonids Meteor Storm of 2001! WOW!!! We were seeing about 300 meteors in a ten minute time frame at our highest observation time. Couldn't look anywhere without seeing a meteor. We had 11 people observing! Some incredible exploding fireballs too! They were the coolest! Plan to go out this year for another good show.
