How did you choose your login name?

It's just a shortening of my surname, both my father and me have been known as waddo for as long as I can remember.

Mine is simply a mis-spelling of my first name, John, together with the two initials of my second name and surname. Nothing exciting.

 

The locals call me Ianglais (Yanglais) or Jonglais and I have used those as a moniker on other forums but I felt there was too much of a French connection in that, especially as I joined Nottstalgia in an attempt to re-establish my Nottingham heritage.

 

Note jonglais is French for juggler - something I am singularly unable to do!

Mine is simple. I lived on Peveril St as a child and teenager and was always up to mischief :rolleyes:

Jonab, I am called  " l'inglesina" the english lady or "la moglie di Alessio" Alessio's wife every body knows me but I don't know them all.  I know names and I recognise faces but putting them together is another matter. Village life I suppose.

Mine is the three letters of my name reversed.    I was supposed to be Megan, my grandmother wanted her name to be carried on but Dad thought she was an interfering old bugger so just registered me as Meg.

And for me? Mine is self explanatory,  an elongated version of my initials.:rolleyes:

I was Margie in my teenage years.  I also answer to Marg, Margaret, Mum or Grandma, but  never Maggie!  The H was the first letter of my maiden name.

In the few years before I left Nottm., I was the DJ at the 360 Club.  It's that simple.

Mine was given to me as they thought that I was only fit to live in caves, mainly due to my attitude to petty , pompous officials.

Surely then, it shoulda been Troll? Or maybe it's  short for Troglodyte?

By the way Trogg, howya doin after your visit to the hospital in June?? B.

A troglodyte is a cave dweller. A troll is an ugly dwarf, see Google. I hope you're not insulting one of our senior members ! Tut, tut  !

Amazing!!! I just knew somebody would pick me up as soon as I posted it, (with tongue in cheek). Lo and behold I  was right. It's  my ever present conscience and minder, who I'm  sure vets everything I  post. Thank you for keeping me on the straight and narrow. Think I  might employ you as my proof reader.

Beekay Thanks I am doing OK, I am still waiting for a new shoulder but it does not stop me misbehaving and enjoying myself. I also need a proof reader but more important would be a minder to keep me on the straight and narrow.

Have a word with Fly, he seems to have plenty of time on his hands, and he can read too! He could get some boxing gloves or knuckle dusters and be your minder, provided you change your name to Arthur Daly.  :flyswat:
