Your username - what does it mean?

  1. I know this topic was posted before, but I've looked and just can't find it! I see we have quite a few new members, and I've seen some very interesting usernames, and I was wondering, and I'm sure some others were too, what do they mean?
    Mine is Cindy_A, for Cindy Abrams, real imaginative isn't it? I'm a LPN, will be going to school for my RN in August.
    Whoever posted this topic originally, maybe you could post to it so the newbies could see some of the old replies.

    When I first started posting on BB's, there were too many Linda's, so I decided to name myself after Margaret Hoolahan, my favorite TV nurse, from MASH. I liked her because she was soft on her patients, firm with the doc's, and tough, but fair, with her nurses, plus that affair with Frank Burns, too funny!!

    "ima" reminded me of a bachelorette party I was at years ago. There was this bar that, when we (a few of us who went to the island the night before the real party)walked in and huge table of people greeted us and asked us if we would join their "family reunion"I should have had a clue it was a hoax, the guy had a suit jacket and tie, Jams and no shirt on.We said "yes" and received a sticker to wear that said: Hello my name is: and you had to fill in the First name, because the Last name was "Dick" The Dick Family Reunion, Well we had names like: Woody,ima,Harry,you get the picture(was a great party)The next night the actual Bachelorette was not Near as fun. So "ima" has always been a favorite name, and it does get the point across. Sorry for the long trip down memory lane! imaRN

    Well, if you know anything about horses, "Appy" is short for Appaloosa. I love appaloosa and paint horses. The coloring is wonderful on most. I use this name (or a variation of) for all of my accounts. Helps make it easier to remember...LOL...

    Happy Riding!!
