Default How did you pick your Forum UserName?

Maybe this has been asked before, but I'm curious -- How did each of you pick your UserName? I'm sure some thought went into it, because there are some pretty unique names on the Forum. Is there an interesting history behind it? Or, did you do what I did -- pick it based upon what you thought might describe you or your activities? Sometimes I can guess -- but most often, not.

I chose my username -- This'nThat -- because I thought I'd be on a thread and talk a little about This, and a little about That -- thus: This'nThat. Besides, it has an explosive abbreviation -- TnT, which I thought was pretty cool.

What about you?.....

Default Gravy

In the "old country" our last name literally means "gravy". Our name is Czech and begins with a "V".
Our parents purchased a family boat about 15 years ago....it was the color gray.
When trying to come up with a name for our parents' purchase one of my brothers came up with "Gray 'V' Boat" or "Gravy Boat".

It's 19 degrees outside and there is a boat tied up to my dock. (Using the old lightbulb trick).

She is called the Misty Blue and is credited with three lives saved by the Coast Guard.

Picture Forest Gump...."That's my boat....I call her the Misty."

Thumbs up What's in a name?

You may want to check out a similar thread from April 2007. What's in a name. Over 130 posts with folks explaining their screen name. I found it to be interesting reading.

My screen name is explained HERE. However, I strongly recommend viewing the whole thread. For instance, find out who chose their screen name because "FatLazyLess" was already taken.

Great idea to revisit the topic and get more forum folks to 'fess up . Don't hesitate, add your name NOW. With over 3,000 registered users there should be many more posts on this topic. So come on and let us hear from YOU!

Default A little strange but...

Mine is a little more convoluted. The name of my boat is Blue Thunder. The boat is blue (and white). It has the "Captain's Call" exhaust which allows it to be switched on and off (on=thunder). The name comes from the 1983 movie Blue Thunder starring the late Roy Scheider (JAWS) about a state of the art police helicopter that had the ability to muffle the sounds it made by going into "whisper mode". I'm also in the same line of work as Mr. Scheider's character(among other things).

Anyone remember JAFO?

Hubby is "Argie" and so I'm "Argie's Wife"....

Someone referred to me as "Argie's Frau" back when we were doing the Forum Fest this year and that tickled me to no end. Our last name is as Greek as it gets and to put it with some German... well.. that pretty much describes us. (I'm as Anglo as they come; he's first generation American.) Thought about changing my handle, actually...

Daniel Stern (the voice of the Wonder Years, Home Alone, City Slickers, etc.) played Jafo in Blue Thunder. "Just Another F@#$ing Observer" was what it stood for. Great movie!

Anyway, JK are my initials, and the "Joshuatree" comes from the greatest album of all time made by the greatest band of all time. I've seen them 29 times in concert, been to Bono's house, met the band six times, and have over 600 of their songs on my iPod.

Okay, let the "stalker" comments commense. Did I spell that right?

Sunbeam Lodge was the name of an Estate on Veasey Shore Road. It was broken up into smaller lots. When the old homes were destroyed I was able to salvage the Original huge sign that hung on the property. I also was able to save the little lodge that was built on the edge of the lake. I learned that the cottage was originally won in a poker game on Beaver Island and then dragged across the ice to it's current location.It seemed fitting that I hang the sign on what was left of the original estate. Hence the name.

Reading the comics, back in the 1960's, I always read Dick Tracy in the Boston Globe. With characters like Pruneface, Itchy, Go Go Gomez. Officer Heap O'Calory, B.B. Eyes, Dr. Von Schnooker, and Mumbles, my choice of fatlazyless seemed like a good fit.

Skipper, you're right - there are some interesting stories in that old thread. I remember the thread last year, but admit I lurked.

Mine's pretty simple. I'm a Graphic Designer! I'm a NH Native who is fortunate enough to get paid for something I love to do! I've been designing since high school, and you probably walk past some of my work in the grocery aisle every week! I had moved to Seattle for a few years, but NH called me back to start a family. Now, I live in Meredith on Lake Waukewan year-round and work in Gilford. Currently, my work spans across all of New England with a major media company as I "telecommute" from my little office!

I sympathize with you Jersey-ites - my work commute isn't complicated by highway traffic as often as it is by wildlife!

Default Original thread

My explanation is in the original thread... I live on an island and am female...

I have always liked the rhythm of the Elton John song, "Island Girl". Much to my dismay ... after actually listening to the lyrics.... I found I did not have much in common with the woman to which he referred. She was a lot taller than me and her occupation was a bit questionable!!! I decided to keep the name anyway... gotta have a sense of humor.

Mine is pretty straight forward as well ............... simply the name of our boat for years.

Where did that come from? ...... their was always something "dark", elusive, and yet omnipresent about The Phantom.

We needed a generic log in that would allow us to discuss "things" pertaining to the regulations that affect "shore" front properties.

... and "shore things" seemed a heck of a lot more user friendly and approachable than "The Man" or "Big Brother".

Talking it was a given

My husband gave me the moniker, after one too many times on the boat, chart in hand, pointing out the obvious marker or other hazard coming up!

Mine references a book that was written by a local historian, Way Out There, about the area of Meredith I live in. I used to be P.C. on the old forum.

One of my other passions besides boating is coaching soccer. Been doing it for 20 years now. The camp I started was called " The Perfect Touch ". So I just abbreviated part of it

Couldn't pronounce the name of the lake as a little kid, and would ask if we were going "up the saukee". It just stuck over the years, and now I am really lucky, because I live here, so I am always UpTheSaukee! (hence the signature)

In (I believe) 1978 we decided to come up for the week between Christmas & New Years. It was silly to open our place so we made a reservation in Piping Rock.

As bizarre as this sounds, there was a guy who had committed a murder somewhere in the area. The guys name was Luniac.

On the radio station, which I think was probably WLNH, they kept reporting "sightings" of Luniac here and there. It was crazy.

Hence, LOONIAC...

I happened to be the first to register from the lake that sends it's water (after we use it! ) into Winni.

Not to mention, it describes well many of the nice friends I've met via this forum

Thumbs up

I think mine picked me, more so than me picking it.......... although my son always has loved the water, once he gets in I have to practically carry him out and I always called him my Water Baby because of that................ it's great to hear the stories behind the names, even if there isn't really a story!

'White Rook' is the radio call name for the character Sgt. Saunders of the 1960's TV series COMBAT! Played by Vic Morrow, Sgt. Saunders was the squad leader reporting to Lt. Hanley played by Rick Jason. The squad was part of the 361 Infantry that landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day. My truck's license plate reads WHTROOK.

I was an English major, too. And, for the record, love The Joshua Tree. Actually saw them on one of their first swings through the US -- in a gym at SUNY Delhi.

My forum name was Jersey Girl as I am a female who reluctantly lives in NJ, but there was a Jerseygirl so I changed it to nj2nh. I confess I totally stole that from a license plate I saw once in Wolfeboro - a car from Jersey, of course. During the summer, I saw that car again, on a highway here in northern Jersey. I tried to catch up with it, but it was too far ahead and gone.

I often use my license plate as my moniker, Echo Pt, but thought I would try something new as then everyone would know who I was and where we summer! Of course, now you all do anyway.

Great thread - so many creative people!

I picked my user name from a chicken we had but was interperted by my 3 year old grandson as PennyPenny. Her name was Hennypenny and he always yelled or called PennyPenny and she would come running or squacking to him. Many members think it is just adding my 2 cents worth to a post and most of the time it is but anywho...thats where I came up with my name. I use it a lot on other boards/forums.

Default My Initials

I'm a Forum member with a not-very-innovative Forum name. When Don started the original Forum, I used my actual name as my Forum name. But since my first name is also "Don", and when the Forum's popularity grew like gangbusters, some members were confusing me with the webmaster. So I decided to change my Forum name to my initials, which wasn't very creative but I suppose it does the job!

Joshua Tree came out when I was a senior in college. I still have the original cassette I bought, but I bet it is pretty worn out by now. I used to play that over and over when driving to visit my GF at the time, who lived in PA. Good times...good times.

Huh was the question I kept asking myself when I was reading these boards specifically when reading about the supposed need for a blanket speed limit on the lake.. And now I have the same response to the way New Hampshire voted in the recent elections went. I guess some people see higher taxes and bigger Gubment as the change we really need... HUH

I always urge my sled-riding buddies to join me for a ride after the sun sets. I love riding the trails at night. More than during the day, you know when other sleds are coming around corners because you can see the headlights long before you see the sleds. Riding to the top of Moose Mountain on a moonlit night is heavenly. Deer and Moose are seen more often at night on the trails also. At one point during a break in riding I was extolling the virtues of that particular trip and a fellow rider dubbed me the "Nightrider" and it has stuck ever since.

Default Orion

Flew 2500 hrs on Navy P3 Orion antisubmarine patrol planes during the Cold War (1975-1979). Also an avid astronomer and Orion was always my favorite constellation since it was always prominent in the clear winter skies, and had the most interesting celestial objects within.

And did you see that NASA has named its next manned planetary (moon and Mars) crew module Orion?

Default Mine was picked for me.

I used to have a different name. Members of the forum started referring to me by this name as the logical extension of my wifes name. I can't argue with logic.

Stole it from my wife,Sammie.She has the original Samiam license plate.She's always worried that I'll start ranting about something and she'll get the blame.
