How Did You Choose Your User Name for Dance Forums?

#42
I was starting to feel like a contented old dog must feel when I reluctantly began dancing (at over 50). I thought I was probably too old to get much out of dancing. Though it has been a real challenge, this old dog has managed to learn some new tricks. And he hopes to learn quite a few more as he seeks to prove no dog is ever too old to learn.

Will turn 70 this year, but we have friends in their 90s who are still attending dances and taking lessons, so we have a ways to go to prove anything at all. One thing for sure -- as most of you know so well -- there is nothing like dancing to make you feel younger.

You truly inspire me! Thanks for sharing that with all of us!

To Lioness...

Lioness has been my name since I started in forums when I was...13? About 4 years ago, at any rate. It started on a trivia site that had lots of quizzes, and I'd take tons of quizzes about my (at the time) favourite book series - Tamora Pierce's Lioness series. The logical thing to do was to sign up to that site with a name relating to the series, and it's stuck.
Lioness, Your user name suits you. You impress us all with your wisdom beyond your years...

Cheers! :cheers:

Cool thread for a newbie! As i can also fold into this my fascination with the origin of words

How did i choose my name? Nothing came to mind as I stared at that blank space on the registration form. (And perhaps 'RhythmGirl' was worth a try, but I did not.)

so i simply used the name given me. My proud Irish family name means something like 'leader in battle'.

And Amanda is Latin for 'she who must be loved'

So Im 'She Who Must Be Loved, Commander in Battle'! :)

Well, mine is a double or maybe even triple-entendre. My favorite dance is Tango, and when I first started, the tango rocks "pattern" was one I liked a lot--still utilize it. However, I also think that Tango ROCKS! (lol) so that's the second meaning. Music-wise, I am a big fan of the rock'n roll era, so the "rocks" part works for that as well. And yes, I have been told before that I have a twisted sense of logic, lol ;)

I am still fairly new to DF, but I enjoy reading many of the threads. I chose my name as a mix of my first and last name. It started with email, and it seems to be my go-to screen name when I need things. At least I know to mix up my passwords, lol.

The German abbreviation of my favorite dance.

Although finding English words which start with la... wa... would be fun.

I use this username for anything on the Internet. It was a nice short masculine-sounding name. But then I found some people were pronouncing it as "gourmet" and that added a little bit of class to it. So I kept it ever since.

Gorme and singndance, thanks for your replies to this thread!

Gorme, the first time that I saw your user name of Gorme, the first thing that came to mind is Gorman, California. I have visited your San Jose, but Gorman is in the upper NW corner of L.A. County down south. It's a rest stop for the Tejon Pass, which links Southern California with Central California:

singndance, that is a very nice combination--singing and dancing! :banana:

I picked this name because, he is one of the character in my novel (which is still in my head...one day, I swear @'_'@). Anyway, since it is such an exotic name, typically speaking, no one use it. And I just use it in many cases. Although I do need to admit, apparently there are other people making up the exact same name...hmmmm.

I chose mine based on the magical creature from Final Fantasy online video game my friend was playing one time. I thought it was cute, so I began looking it up. I came across a cute picture that looked like the moogle was dancing in the air, hence my avatar is called "dancingmoogle".
