Your User Name....

Now some of you have quite obvious user names, some not...

Mine BTW is Wine~o Not as some think because I'm a raving alcoholic....but because of 25 years in the wine trade...(Honest...) big_smile

How did you decide on your "online" Moniker???

Kye, Ashen, Maree,  and the others can quite happily ignore this thread....or not..

Re: Your User Name....

My nikname dates from when i was a kid at school.
A game we played hmm adding a Y in the middle of our initials.

My name became VCYLH yikes i then left out the C and L which (are you following me?) became VYH .. still not happy i messed with the sounds/syllables and KYE was born..



If you come to FB, you will see my real name.


Marée by the way is Marée...her real name. She has French connections wink

By the way Danny kindly took away the 'in France' that i added when i joined here, there had been another 'Kye' beforehand.

Re: Your User Name....

Mine is kind of nerdy. I played an MMO (online gaming) called City of Heroes and my first and main Hero name was Phanta (after the soda Fanta). So I used COHPhanta for all my communications with my online gaming friends so that they knew it was me sending them emails, etc.  It's pronounced as you would thing Co fanta or as some of online friends now call me Coco.

Wasn't that ("French Connection") a movie, Kye wink ?. Yes, my paternal grandmother was French. She died before my parents married. My first and middle names are an Anglo-Irish version of her name.

Re: Your User Name....

My name IS my name.

There is one 'Minerva' named in each generation, & is trained in herbalism & hedgecraft. She is given the 'wisdom' of the Minerva of the generation preceding, & has to hand it on to the next when the time is right. I have already done this, & the one that comes after has already been born.
It is an unbroken line that goes way back.
