Well my nickname here comes from my original nickname, it's Sally_Champagne. I came up with that name long before I had internet, I just thought about a "nickname" for anything, and I was a huge oasis fan back then, so I wanted something connected with them. There's this song called "Don't look back in anger" that has a girl "Sally" in the lyrics, so I thought "Sally's cool, now she must have a last name" eheh... so after trying combinations with some words from other of their songs, I chose Champagne, from "Champagne Supernova". These 2 songs are actually 2 of my faves.
When I got the internet I used the nickname for irc and stuff, and there are lots of people who call me sally Then as it was a bit long I made up "Sallynha", which is kind of a word for a "short and sweet" sally. The way the word is built is like it was a portuguese word (->we add "inha" to say a feminine noun is small,short,cute, that kind of meaning)... So I hope you're not too bored! eheh
I've recently been using another nickname though, tHATGIRL coz my boyfriend's nickname is tHATDUDE --> this reminded me it's kind of similar to ThisGuy ehhehe only we're "that" and he's "this" lol

I chose my name because its what I am! I just recently moved into a city that is gigantic compared to my old town and so everyone that knows me or talks about me at school calls me the "countrygirl" or that "hick chic" since I'm really into the Rodeos and wat-knot...and the 23 is for the day I was born..the 23rd of January.....by the way...to the LilBlueSmurf..I think thats one of the cutest nicknames....lol and its also what everyone calls my mom 'cause shes only 4'9

Well, my nickname comes from two places really. The first, which is where most of the meaning comes from, was from my old job. I worked in a warehouse, and my "office" was a corner of the warehouse that was fenced in. Since there was a gate in the fence(to keep nosy people away from my computer while i was gone) my co-workers thought it was funny to take a padlock and lock me in there. Hence, I spent quite a few hours locked in the corner of a warehouse. It doesn't hold too much meaning anymore since I quit that job, but I like the name anyway

I know I posted this once, but it seems to have evaporated. Anyway, I also use a different nick on this site than I do on the rest of the web. My sig line kinda explains my nick. In high school one of my best friends called me Munchkin, which she then shortened to Munchy, and deformed into Monchichi. For those of you who don't know, Monchichi was a small monkey-like doll that was around when I was a kid. The song on the commercial went, "Monchichi, Monchichi, oh so soft and cudd-ely." My, ahem, former nick on this site was from my childhood. When I was little, I used to jump on my grandparents' bed, so my Grandma called me "Popa's Little L-------."

Nickname? Which one? The "alexpulp" I use most of the time was only 50% inspired by something in the outer world (namely the band PULP I was very fond of in 1998, the time I started spending hours in the Net), the "alex" part came out of nowhere. No, wait, it has an origin, but that's a long and not a very happy story. As for VorteX... hm... I think it appeared when I got my hands on UnrealTournament and needed something less freaky than "alexpulp". The UT era has passed but the nick remained, now it's the title of my 1-person software company

Kythryne was my first totally made-up screenname. I decided one day that I wanted something totally unique and different from my real name to use online, and I played around with a bunch of stuff until I found something that didn't seem to be in use by anyone else on the internet. It's a permuatation of both Kathryn, which is a name I've always liked, and Kathleen, which was my great-grandmother's name.

And Aisling I found in the book "Peachtree Street" by Anne Rivers Siddons. It's an Irish name that means "dream" or "vision," and I loved the way it looked even before I knew what it meant.

Eventually, I decided I liked Kythryne Aisling better than my real name, and I started using it in real life. It's not my legal name yet, but will be soon.

And Miz S. is responsible for shortening Kythryne to Kyth.

my nick-name is starfish

my speech coach started calling me that after i sent a poem to everyone on the team about a man who was watching a little boy on the beach try to throw the starfish that had washed onto the shore back into the ocean. everytime he threw one back it seemed as though fifty more would come. the man says to the little boy,'what are you doing? the tide is just bringing them all back.' and the little boy says,' so? maybe ill save one." or something along those lines.

awe!!

Mine's from the movie, Moulin Rouge. I totally loved that movie! People everywhere should watch it. It's the best ever. Lol. The Sparkling Diamond was the name of the main character from the movie, Satine, played by Nicole Kidman. She's a very good singer. As well as Ewan MacGregor. It's seriously worth a look.

weeelll... this nick that i go under here is my very first. when i first got online i couldn't think of anything good. soo star is just because i love stars. i have one tattooed on my arm with a moon, other stars and a shooting star inside, kind of a night sky scene.. that really has nothing to do with the name, just a side note because i babble a lot. and the 1120 is an inside joke from marching band in highschool.

my other screen name is xsporkstarx the x's are just decoration. but i really dig sporks, i paint them as a hobby. my website is http://www.angelfire.com/oh4/sporkforest my room is called the sporkforest because i hung a bunch of painted sporks from the ceiling.

sporks are just fun.

I used to be Pixie69, because I'm semi-obsessed with faeries, pixies, and other fae creatures.

Now I'm HeatherRocksMyBobbySocks because I needed a new name. See, Pixie69 was an Advocate for over a year. And then she had to stop because of a stupid computer and not enough time. "rocks my bobby socks" is a term I've coined for things that really rock. Heather being the one and only Mz. S, who tops my "things that rock" list. And I'm jsut a regular user now, so I thought I needed a new name

My real name is Kiffen, pretty unique and i love it. But people assume im a guy when they first read my name.grrr! One of my teachers, and some other friends from Germany have told me that Kiffen also means smoking weed in germany, is that so? If it is i feel so bad for my self, i lived in germany my first 5 yrs of my life:<

The nickname my parents have called me since i was born is Bubba. My mom says they called me this because i was such a bubbly baby.

Well, I have lots of nicknames aside from this one. . . But the reason I chose "Maryha" is because I've always liked the name "Maria." However, I am also a scifi fantasy fan and like to spell things in alternative ways to make them sound a little eccentric. . . First it was Marhya on another forum and it just sort of evolved into Maryha.

my nick name came from the fact that people think i use and abuse boys. and i don't. i've been in a good relationship for nearly 3months and i am very happy with him. anyways In Greek mythology Sirens drew in sailors from the sean with their beautiful voices. When the sailors listened to their songs, they fall in love, and follow the song to their death. The Sirens ate the sailors. Very Romantic. and Rose comes from my last name which is Rooze but is pronounced like the flower. i thought it was clever...

who in despite of view is pleased to dote,
Nor are mine ears by thine tounge's tune delighted,
Nor tender feeling base touches prone,
Nor taste nor smell desire to be invited,
To any sensual feast with thee alone.
But my five wits nor five senses can dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee,
Who leaves unswayed the likeness of a man,
Thy proud heart's slave and vassal wretch to be.

I got my nickname from...well, mainly my friend. She had this website at "itsdorkrock", which she got the "dorkrock" from a song by the Ataris, Angry Nerd Rock. Dork rock, nerd rock, same diff. Anyway, I thought "dork rock" was pretty cool since it's ROCK music for DORKS (of which I am a proud member), but of course she'd already taken that. This was about a month ago and I needed a new email, so I asked if I could somewhat take her idea except change it to "duck rock", because ducks are just cool. Their yellow shades, and orange beaks, and the way the squeak (especially if they're rubber)...but I'm going off on a tangent here. Sorry. Anyway, um, I got my duckrock email and ever since all my screen names have been sort of "revolving" around the rubber duckie/duck theme.
Ducks are cool.
