WeatherWoman985 - This isn't the name I usually go by but the other one was one character too long. The numbers are different. I started using this back in college. Anywho, I am a Meteorologist, so it's just a nerdy thing for me. As for the numbers, 9 is my favorite number and 85 is my birth year.

When I was little my nick name was Dee, my mom's best friend called me Dee Dee Kins, then as I grew up she called me Mizz Kins, and she still does.

I've rejoined SP a lot, sometimes thinking if I had the right name it would motivate me to lose the weight. Or a "new" name would be a fresh start. Now I realize hard work and success make a great name, not vice versa.

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

In my case I was just too lazy to come up with an interesting user name. So I just stuck to the name I use for my email. Actually my full name is carolyn. I'd like for people to refer to me as Carolyn, but when I write something and then sign my name 'Carolyn' at the bottom...people still ignore it and refer to me as Carol, or even worse, Carol3san LOL.

When I first created an ID for Yahoo in 1997, I wanted something different. I have red hair and came up with Titian since this refers to brown-orange color or ginger. My hair isn't really the usual color that is referred to as a ginger so I added Fire to the name for 2 reasons. 1 - referring to all the colors of red in a fire and 2 - because redheads are often referred to as being hot blooded, natured, etc.

When I go to renaissance faire, I use the name Rhiannon. :)

A women is often measured by the things she cannot control.
She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn't curve, by where she is flat or straight or round.
She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers, by all the outside things that don't ever add up to who she is on the inside.
And so if a women is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control;
by who she is and who she is trying to become.
Because as every women knows, measurement

Mine's complicated.
E is the initial of my first name.
mex is for Mexico, where I lived for 5 months while a senior in high school. the first half, emex, was what I always went by online after that.
But then 20 years ago, when I was chatting on MomsOnline, I wanted to be a chat host, and they said you have to use your real name, and emex doesn't sound like a real name. So I went by Rose, which is not MY real name but more likely to be somebody's :) So my chat host name was Rose, and my play chat name was emex.
Then, as usernames got to where they had to be at least 6 characters more and more often, I just combined the two, and now I am emexRose most everywhere.

I got mine from a book essentially. I read a name that was similar to mine in a book and I took it and revamped it to suit my personality. I can't remember the name now, but I've been using this user name ever since I read that book. And I change the number every year to match my age.

Depression is anger without the motivation.

I think depression runs rampant in society today because we are all so obsessed with making a living instead of living our lives.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem...On your hopes you must lean...From your fears you have to wean yourself.

My user name, SWDOTB are the first initials for She Who Dances On The Beach. It comes from a dream I had while going through a very difficult and dark divorce. I remember waking and thinking how could I dream something so beautiful and feeling so happy while dancing on a beach when awake time was filled with threats that I hadn't even begun to see his dark side.

The day after the dream, I was taking a college class on Native American Literature at the time and my professor, Dr. Eileen Bender asked us if we could name ourselves, what would it be? And I've walked into this name since that dark transition time (1996) and SWDOTB mark my yoga straps and my yoga blocks and is my user name. It is also on my REIKI certifications.

I picked Azure-Sky because I retired to the Southwest after living on the East Coast for most of my life. The one thing that really struck me was the wide open expanses of --- azure skies. After living in an area that was very lush with trees and grass and lots of green, I've come to love the sparse landscape with the interesting cacti and other desert plants. And - I really love the mostly cloudless blue skies all year round. I'm not affected by SAD anymore!

It is always interesting to see what the names we pick for our usernames mean to us. I was hoping others would be willing to share the significance of their picked name as well.

Snowtgrr came from my love of Siberian Tigers. They are so large and powerful but are very graceful. They mate for life and are very protective of their families. I love their beauty, strength and grace. I think of them and work on myself as I go through life getting to know the real me not the one my parents forced me to be. I work on thinking of myself as beautiful. I like the strength so I try to emulate it in my strength of character. I love the grace and I work at being graceful in manner as well as physically.

Well that's it for me. I would love to get to know others as well.
