Bit bored, so came up with a pointless thread... indecision

I've been curious about how peeps got there usernames...

Some are funny (BEB), some cryptic.. Most of you, who are not famous (Tony, Pete, David - dont be miffed if I missed you off) have just used you own boring name... Why..??

You could have beed 'King Bob the 3rd', 'Leonardo da Vinci', 'Shed Hermit', 'Balsa Junky', or just plain old 'Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis'


Steve's is puzzling me at the mo.. I think Steve-W-O stands for

'Steve..! WATCH-OUT he's about to take-off / crash / etc..' wink


Mines just my interests.. A bit nerdy I suppose..

Cyclic - from Heli's, Scooby from my car (Scooby is Latin for Subaru Impreza)


So.. Explain yourselves... Especially Steve..



Bored Chrisie.. xx

I'll start as mines simple, YakMad.... I am just mad about Yak's, the planes not the 4 legged creatures, I particulary like Yak-54's currently have two but have had many more.

Lol I know what you mean Chrissy, I kinda guesses at yours (Scooby is latin for Impreza lol)

Well mine is derived from South Park a character called Towlie, and is due to my unique ability to get lost going somewhere I have been several times before :D

Plus anyone that has read Hitchhikers guide will know its advisable to always bring a towel

Very boring I'm afraid, I have a double surname, and the W-O are the first letters of each half of my surname.

Sorry to disappoint smiley

Never saw the point of the modern, trendy idea of using a nickname.

If I wrote someone a letter I'd use my real name; why is this interweb stuff any different?

The initials of my First name and Surname, but also, by coincidence, the call-sign of the Chipmunk I learnt to fly on many many many years ago ... ! (Which is still flying and now based in Scotland).

Then ...

Thats me again in 1964!

And more recently ...

Chipmunk G-AORW

PS. I have no connection with this aircraft now. Just distant memories!

Why a movie stars have a "beautiful "names?....possible that these changed and chosen new names ,are easier to remember and much more melodiously.

Something similar happened with the names of people who lived behind the Iron Curtain.Most of us have hardly pronounceable names (of course, from the English language point of view.) .All was well until I arrived on the best forum ever (RCM&E) few years ago....I had to subtract one letter "s",

because my nick name Mess(Jazz Messengers Band) denotes bad vanity is so unpredictable....face 6

hence I agree with Mr.Martyn Johnston
