Mine can have two meanings. It is either my initials (gk) and my date of birth (6-8-54). The other is my initials again and my height (6'-8" [or so]) and my basketball jersey number I've worn through HS and college ball and since.

Okay, mine is pretty simple. When I first signed on for aol, I couldn't get clford (Christine Lynn Ford), so I ended up with cljford (Christine Lynn Jeske Ford)-Jeske being my maiden name. I considered just going with cljeske, but figured Lance might really be offended if I appeared to disinherit him after seven years of marriage and two kids! By the way, my oldest son is named Mitch! Mitchell Paul, to be exact!

My husband's friend set up email for us, so I guess he chose the email addy. I go by gibson girl because my maiden name was Gibson. (Hoot is my brother) and I have always admired the artwork of Charles Gibson and the Gibson Girls he is famous for. My car license plate is RT RN 57, for my name now, the fact that I am RN, graduated from nurses training and was married in 57.

Mornin Mitch, when I first got my computer 7 years ago, I kept thinking of names and they were rejected for all being used. I was looking out the window and saw the mistletoe growing in the tree tops and thought "why the heck not". When we moved back and I signed up with earthlink again, and I had to add a 6 to it. I guess there is a couple of other weirdos out there with me!

N stands for Newton, my last name. Keeper8 means that I am a keeper at home (King James for stay at home mom) and there are 8 people in my family. If, in August, I end up with twins, I won't have to change anything, I'll just say I have 8 children. Otherwise, I'll have to change the number or the meaning.

The area that our lone internet provider covers is so small that I got to use my regular first name, so, that seemed easiest, nicknames and "fake" names never appealed to me, jus plain ol' me.

I used to pop up on a local radio station and was known as the Goat lady from Glendale. When I tried to register goatlady, I found that only about a gazillion were ahead of me. So I tried goatgal, same problem. Went to goatgalmjb, that's my initials. Again, someone beat me to it, so I added the 1. Hence goatgalmjb1.

Our farm is named Harper Hill Farm. We live on Harper Road and at the top of a hill. It's also our goat herd name.

No, I am not a tribe member. I have blood from probably every tribe from the Southeast and every immigrant who came over in the 1600s and early 1700s to the SE [and a couple from Pennsylvania]

I had wondered about moopups. Seems that you think like my grandaughter. She [at one and a half] could't remember 'cow' and called them 'moopuppies'.

Hi Mitch, I was about to ask the same question!

My usual addy is simply the name of my favorite horse, she is a Kiger Mustang whose reg. name is "Kiger Vixen". Seemed logical to name her that when she was foaled, as her dam (mother) is Kiger Kitfox. To add to the story, my dh is, among other things, a pilot. He sold his plane a number of years ago and when we got into the horse business full time, he bemoaned the fact that it would likely be awhile before he had time to have another airplane. He started naming the Kigers after airplanes and related topics, stating that was probably as close as he would get to "owning" a plane. Hence we have the 2 horses already mentioned, a stallion named "Top Gun", some others are Stealth Fighter, Spitfire, Wind Dancer, Desert Storm, Klassic, Sky Star, Jet Star, etc. Dh has fun telling people he owns all these different "planes".

My alternate e-mail is Not-B-Haven, which is the name of my goat farm. I have Nubians....the name is self explanatory.....

I guess mine is self-explanatory;)

Mine is sort of a long story, but here it goes....I have had goats since I was 7 years old. When I was 13 I had a pet goat named Turd, in the winter (I was living in Massachusetts) he stayed in a horse stall in the barn, in the stall I had run an extension cord across the ceiling to hang a heat lamp from, well one morning I went out to feed him and found that he had accidently (I assume it was in accident because I did not find a suicide note) hung himself on the extension cord. Well when the other kds in the neighberhood found out about my goat hanging himself they started to call me DeadGoatMan, it was eventually shortened to GoatMan, many people still call me GoatMan. When I went to register my name with WebTV goatman was taken and I did not want to do the number thing so I went back to the origional name DeadGoatMan!

I get a lot of questions about my name and some folks get down right nasty about me having such an awful name!

Mine comes from the kids and the "4-H Barn moms" When all the kids were in 4-H we were showing Horses, Rabbits and Poultry. The kids were talking about Horse moms, Cow moms etc, refering to all the moms in the background that help keep kids on time for showing their animals and in the right spot at the right time. Suddenly one of the kids pipes up "she's a rabbitmom too" (we were the only ones with rabbits in the horse club) and I had my name! Denise

All I could come up with is the first initial of me(Jean), my son Adam and my husband Terry.

It just come natural as a nickname. charlie sappington

-- charlie (, January 15, 2002.

My husband picked it. He said it's because it's pretty here where we live. I told him it's embarrassing for me because it sounds like I'm referring to myself when I use it. I guess I'm stuck with it for now- -till I learn how to change it. Which might be never because I'm not very computer literate.

-- Kari (, January 15, 2002.

FINALLY! I've been waiting almost 3 years to hear Mark's explanation of his name!

-- Just Duckie (, January 15, 2002.

Mine is the name I am called by a friends children. My first name begins with a "T" and my last name begins with an "M" so they thought calling me "Aunt TM" sounded like "Aunty Em" from the Wizard of OZ. Just plain aunt tm was already taken so I got stuck with the underscore "_", in my name for my e-mail address.
