Carol = My first name...
C = The first initial of my last name...

I didn't want a fake handle here in the Mudcat because I'm not smart enough to keep track of those kinds of things. I don't use my full name because it's too long and because I don't feel the need to.

Carol

katlaughing, as I've said before, is a logical, in some people's minds, extension of a contraction (katlaf) of my real name, kat'leen lafrance; if I wanted to get fancy it is de la france, but that would've mucked it up to katdelaughing, which I guess could have been changed around to delaughingkat, but, oh hell, now I am thinking of changing it all to Amergin's name for me, which I quite like, Katdarling! Then there are all those other possibilities, my 4, almost 5 year old grand-nephew calls me Aunt Kitty, my 2.5 yr grandsons call me Gramma KitKat...muddles the mind, never know what to sign!

I have used my first initial and last name since marriage. My initial's have been SH since birth, adding "all" was the first benefit I received from that ancient wedding ceremony. I was pleased that I didn't have to change the monagrams on all my linens.(Ha Ha) The definition of "Shall" in the Webster dictionary seem to suit me to a tee, I don't mind being a verb.

Like I've said before, this is one of my old IRC nicknames. But I'm thinking of changing my name to this, so then I'd be using my REAL name. Muaha. My REAL name is Will Anderson, btw. But REAL names are hard to remember, I think. :)

Date: 15 Feb 01 - 11:15 AM

Another related question might be why we don't use our "real" names. I chose Naemanson for my SCA persona, as an imaginary person he didn't have a real father so he was No Man's Son, i.e., Naemanson.

And I used it instead of my real name because of the basic paranoia that goes with the use of the Internet. I am tempted to change it now that I am confidant in being here.

Well, someone will link to the previous threads where I explained mine.
The other alternative:
"Roger the crap singer and occasional solo kazoo player, with a strange fixation with music of the 1950s, particularly the rough and ready type popularised in UK by a certain Mr Donegan, and who also likes some folk, but prefers jazz and blues"
wouldn't fit in the box.

Not terribly creative but everyone in my family's first name begins with the letter "J", hence we're the "J's". James

My real name is Gary Mark Trend as supplied by mum and
dad. When I signed up for Mudcat Gary T was taken (by
Gary T), I panicked and used my initials (in upper case).
I,ve been thinking of changing it for some time. Is this done ? Or am I stuck forever anonymous and in upper case.
Cheers Gary

Let me get this straight Mario.....I seem to recall something about it, but refresh my memory. What I am confused about is that you say your mother made a mistake on your Birth Certificate. Considering that Mario and your "real" name aren't even close, that's one pretty big mistake!!! Like I could understand a slight ,isspelling, say, John for Jon or something, but in your case its more like James for William.

I wanted a nickname that was familiar so chose the one I was given by my schoolfriends - and with the Christian name of Hazel it doesn't take a genius to figure the connection

Two archaeological terms: a type of Iron Age brooch (a bit like a safety pin) and a digging implement. The two names together I orginally envisaged as a pince-nez wearing blue-stocking academic type obsessed with touring ruins, but actually she turned out just like me (i.e. the opposite, though I don't mind touring ruins at all).

blue clickie to a previous thread with links to other previous threads

As far as I go - Mario as SUPPOSSED to be my name, but my mom goofed on the birth certificate - and then I started using it as a character name at ren-faires - and it stuck. The Second M got added for the internet - but it's silent anyway - so doesn't bother me. I would say more people know me under nicknames then know me by my "real" name. In fact - when printing my name in a program for a HS production I helped with they used my nickname as nobody on the staff knew my real name!

Someone quicker than me will certainly add a blue clicky to a previous thread and you will need some time to read it all. But, at the risk of rehashing, I picked my name because I am very involved in local Community theatre in Wilmington, Delaware. My favorite part ever (did it twice!) was Pseudolus from "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum". So, I decided to use it.....

After just posting to my very own thread (thanks again Little Hawk). I got to thinking about all those other curious names and the secrets or events behind them. Now as a newbie (in relative terms) I bet this is an old chestnut , but it's new snow to me.

So if you feel you would care to share with this thread the secret / reason / anger / love etc etc that decided your Mudcat name I would be most obliged and would enjoy the reading.
