How did you get your nickname?

  1. I am curious about everybody's handles. Mine's "zoeboboey." I got that because my cat's name is Zoe and I like playing the name game song, (anybody remember that?) as in "Zoe Zoe bo boey banana fana fo foey, me my mo moey, ZOE!"

    Your turn...

    (Isn't there already a lengthy thread about this issue?)

    "Spidey's mom, Spidey's mom, bo-Spidey's mom, banana-fana fo Spidey's mom, fe fi fo Spidey's mom, Spidey's mom!"

    Ouch - my mouth hurts now.

    So Davey Do and Spidey's Mom are your nicknames as well as your user names? Nah....

    As a child my schoolmates and my teacher used to call me Moppy; that was at the height of Beatlemania and my haircut somewhat resembled those of the Moptops , although a little longer than theirs. In high school (by this time living in SA) I was known as Taffy, after the thieving Welshman of legend.

    Nowadays, I'm just called by an abbreviation of my surname, although some of my former (Afrikaans) colleagues used to have a lot of fun mangling it. Hubby's family name is very Scottish, and lends itself to some imaginative aberrations. Which I won't mention here

    My parents always called me Brookee and somewhere along the line Lou was added, plus needed Lou for username as Brookee was taken.

    Ya know . . . I thought the same thing when I read the title of this thread but then Zoe started talking about her old screen name.

    Let me see . . . . I did use my real nickname when I first joined AN. Not gonna use it now. People might figure out who I am.

    I was teased and called "two-backs". I had no chest to speak of . . . and some 8th grade boys started calling me that. "Flat in the front and flat in the back".

    I am known by many names: When I was small, my Older Sisters called me "Davey Baby". In High School I was known as "Crazy Dave". I am known as "Davern" (day-vern) at the Hospital. Other Professional Titles have included "Mr. Nursey". My Girlfriends and Ex's have known me as "Dugs", "Mr. Peckinpaw", "A. Hole", "Stallion Thighs", and, well, other types of names I don't feel comfortable with mentioning on This Great Site! (They could be taken as complimentary in a sick, twisted way, however.)

    My Name is a apart of my Middle Name. See when i was born i was preemie two months early. My mom thought i just wanted to hurry up and see the world lol. No really. I had a lot of medical problems and back in 63 preemie's chances of living wasn't so great.

    So i made it but i had health problems like my lungs, speech, Yes i have a speech problem sometimes i stutter and i have a lisp. Looking at me now you wouldn't know unless speaking to me.

    I had this speech teacher who was from the UK so when i start to stutter I speak in a English accent and it seemed to work.Still to this day i speak in an English Accent if i get stuck on a word people look at me funny.

    My mom thought i would be her Karma coming to get her. Well being Silcilian Mom believed in a lot of Karma. And i must say I lived up to my name persay. My Dad being Native American thought i would grow and be a WiseMessenger and in Native American folk lore a Raven is Father Sky's Messenger.

    So my dad wanted to call me Wise Raven. My mom wanted Karma my dad could not find anything that related in Native American as Karma. So they named me KarmaWiseRaven. That's how i got my name.. The End
