    Default You Have Some Explaining To Do!

    Hi. I'm not sure where to put this thread but here goes.....

    I really enjoy the all of the membership names of everyone here. I get a kick out of them. Everytime I see a post from someone, I wonder how they arrived at the nickname they chose for themselves. I wonder if there's a story behind, if it means something. Or maybe you just thought it sounded badass. So, explain yourselves!

    As I'm sure you've figured out, I went the boring route and just used my actual name. I didn't want to take time to think of something cool like Like Attack of the Colognes. Or Cologney Island. George Cologney. Mathew McColognehey. Feel free to snatch up those gems, lol. I didn't use them.


    Just don't call me Dan. Now, tell me about your name.

    Hi Danny,

    There is a thread about this topic here: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/437...name-come-from although it's been inactive for a while. So no harm in reinvigorating the question. You might want to contribute to that one instead and wake it up. Not sure, a moderator might want to merge yours with that one.

    My user name is a throwback to one that I've used on and off for many years. Juxtapoz magazine is my favorite art magazine...I've been collecting every issue since it started in 1994. It's pop surrealism/street art/lowbrow counter-culture type of art, and every time that I get a new issue it gives me a feeling of bliss. Hence the username.

    My username is a reference to the Peter Bogdanovich character in the unfinished-but-recently-assembled Orson Welles picture, The Other Side of the Wind.

    Thanks. I tried your link but it says I don't have access to it.
    But I like all the responses so far. Makes me wish I would have made a better member name for myself. I'm a bit jealous. Oh well. Keep em coming.

    Two of my favorite classical composers for the piano. Beethoven is my most favorite but couldn't work in the name into my handle without making it sound cheesy.

    It is a handle i use for many other sites as well.

    I’ve used Cheetah for n handles for awhile now. Favorite animal, so always easy to remember. The 19’s are my college baseball number.

    I didn't even realize BN had forums when I first signed up, so I just used my default username, an abbreviated version of my real name. If I'd known about the forums though, I would have come up with something more clever. In any case, no one can accuse me of hiding behind an anonymous username!

    Little do you know...I have the SAME two first names. My first name is David, and my middle name is David. Just check out the link in my signature to my novels. It's why my website is DavidDavid.net. Odd but true.

    There’s one Dave I know that I call Special-D. Nobody can figure out if it’s a compliment or insult

    To answer the OP question, initials and last name. Don’t stalk me bro!

    I always liked the name Fanny; possibly the actress Fanny Ardant was my inspiration as well.
