When I was young I was very thin and kids would tease me and say its thin Lyn or skinny lynnie. I changed the lyn to lin. So you get thinlin.

Originally I wanted bluebird, but it was taken, so I went with cagedbluebird, but didn't like it being shortened to caged by fellow members (I'm weird and it made me think of animals in cages, so anyway). I tried for bluebird again, in case it was available, but it wasn't, so I tried it with my favorite number 25, still didn't work, so I went with my b-day, 425 and finally got it.
The bluebird part is the title of a poem by Bukowski that I really relate to and simply love. And that's where my name came from. =)

Hello, my name's Amanda.

The first couple of attempts at a name were already taken, so I settled for this one. It is because I am an alum of Michigan State University (the Spartans) + one of my favorite numbers 40.

Sparty on!

My name is Vella and I added my middle and last initial. As a child, with the name Vella, I could never find my name printed on anything, so I use it on everything. Selfish, I guess. Thanks for starting this thread, I was wondering where Zella came from.

Mine is partly my last name backwards and the "Zella" part has, in one form or another, been my online nickname for over 12 years. The Z is for Zella, the M for Michelle.

Well, I'm a little unpredictable - hence, the "mad" part. I am also a clinical laboratory scientist/medical technologist (MT) for a large hospital here in St. Louis. I'm really proud of my new career!!

I picked Plain Jane over 5 years ago when I started my knitting blog & realized that I'm not a yarn snob. I like acrylic yarns for the ease of care. I'm PlainJane on Plurk & a couple other sites, but when that "handle" was already taken here, I added in my middle name.

Leigha23 was taken! :) Leigh is my middle name, and I like Leigha. 23 is my favorite number due to Michael Jordan (and my birthday). Leigha23 has been my screenname since I was about 12. I get the 17 from my husband's birthday.

I teach Zumba and Body Jam (both dance fitness classes) so in a pinch it was what I came up with. Not my most creative moment, but it is what it is :)

I have never been on a website like this so just used my username from work, my last name and first and middle initial so its not very exciting. I'll have to check around and see if there is a way I can come up with something a bit more interesting.

I love to know how everyone picks their username on here. I thought that it would be fun if we all explained why we chose the name....even if it was that was chosen for us....ie the numbers. No matter the reasons tell us....you never know what you may learn.

I will start.
Irish - my husband is Irish and he calls me that.
Navy - I joined the site while still on Active duty in the Navy
Lady - well I like to try to pretend that I am a lady. I seem to be far from it but....it's me.
