Subject: RE: BS: How did you choose your mudcat name?
My first name plus the first letter of my last name, what could be simpler ?

However, I could have used my last name as the inspiration for some sort of nickname based on the concept of 8 pints, had not the real 8_pints pre-empted the idea long before I joined MudCat.

(I may have met Mr. and Mrs 8_pints at a session in Manchester in North-West England once, about a year ago; but couldn't put faces to MudCat noms de guerre at that time).

Plenty of my former rugby team-mates still announce my arrival at various locations by saying, "Ohmigawd, it's HuwG !", falscetto.
