This was one of the fun threads to read. My turn. I just love, no really LOVE how everyone calls me on this team and other 40s larger team. I think my user name is simple but I just love how everyone comes up with creative names. Here's a few that I remember.
Lovelypampa, Lovely, Pampa, Pam, LPP, LP, PP
I see you're smiling already especially with the last one. Believe me I couldn't stop smiling all day that day. Of course they used periods with the initials. Lol.
So, where did this name come from? I've been asked if I was from Texas or Pennsylvania as both states have Pampa city names. Didn't even know that until I googled it. Lol. I wear quite a few hats and only one other hat that I kind of 'wear' has this name. So if you happen to find my name it's not me. I love to laugh and smile all the time. So does my writing especially emails at work and there's where the...'awww lovely' comes from. Lol. The rest of the pampa is actually initials only. M was a typo for n (shortcut for and). Yeahhhh I can see your brain working overtime already so I'm going to leave it at that. Oh gosh look at the time as I'm already late for my walk. Gotta go!!!
It is the name of my ministry so I just use it here also --- I was a military police officer and I was also part of a security detail at my church...I encourage people --- cover them --- thus how my name came into being...
It is the name I have been using since I got out of grad school. At that time, my husband and I needed a shared email account for the first time. We both graduated from Harvey Mudd College, and we call ourselves mudders. We graduated in 91. Thus the name.

"oaktree" is my nickname in my karate dojo... because, of the women there, i guess, people thought i was strong, and not movable, when they tried to move me... i like that, but to be ying AND yang, i am working to be more "willowy". :)

Mine username was changed just under a year ago. It is based on a quote by Theodore Roosevelt.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt

I tried every combination of my real name, my nickname, birthstone, my dog's name....and everything was taken. After my 3rd baby I lost a lot of weight and a friend commented "if you lose any more weight, you'll disappear." In hopes of rekindling the success I had back then, I picked disappearing1 to be my Spark name.
