Robin was originally a male name - being a centuries old French Diminuitive of Robert. Certain 'poseuers' thought it would be clever to spell it 'Robyn' for a female name, and some couldn't spell very well, so Robin began to be used for females...

JohniK, I had a customer once whose name was John Mary (something).

Her dad was drunk when he registered her, and the Registrar wouldn't alter the certificate, except from M to F. He did unbend enough to add the Mary underneath the John. She was quite proud of it, and showed me the birth certificate.

John and Mary. Not an imaginative man.

This was in England, in case anyone should think only Americans were barmy.

(I just said this on another thread. Sorry.)

My real name is too distinctive. Nobody needs to be able to find out that much about me in a single Google search. Also, I don't like it all that well and it brings up too many questions about pronunciation, spelling, meaning, etc. It's easier to pick something else.

I think Bill D. had a great idea inre. to identifying the sex of a poster. If your name is Gwendolyn, for the most part, we can safely assume female. Don't know too many females named Johnathon or Arnold.

Mickey was given to me around age 2 and no one calls me Margaret Mary. That nickname has caused confusion here. Mickey191-f might help to unconfuse the confused.

From: Crane Driver
Date: 26 Jun 07 - 08:07 AM

Well, Crane Driver IS my own name (no-one else can use it here) so I'm being just as honest. I've never made any secret of the fact that 'Crane Driver' is Andrew McKay from Gower in South Wales, but since very few people outside of Mudcat have ever heard of me under either name, what does it matter? I use a name I chose myself rather than the one my parents chose.

Why? I liked the 'feel' of the place, with so many idiosyncratic names about, rather than the fairly limited choice of names most of us are stuck with outside. I like puns and word-play, so I thought I'd join in.

Personally, I don't get so upset about what people post here that I'd want to administer 'social retribution' - I'm certainly not going to fly to Canada to smack ClintonHammond in the mouth for anything, so knowing his 'real' name makes no odds there. If I did want to take a point up with him privately, I could PM him whatever name he was using. That's the real point - I have to stand by whatever 'Crane Driver' posts just as much as I'd have to stand by whatever 'Andrew McKay' posted if I used that name. So, it's just as 'real' a name.

Andrew

I use a nickname because I am of the opinion that there are many more people who read this forum than post to it and I sometimes want to say things on here somewhat anonymously - ie slag off my employer. I work for a large organisation and I have no idea whether any, none or several of the rest of the workforce ever read this. However, because of the job I do - which gets sort of mentioned on here fairly regularly - I am kind of known within the team. Let's just say, my life can be difficult enough without my bosses finding out some of the things I have said on here!

There are 704,066 people in the U.S. with my last name.

There are 11,557 people in the U.S. using both my first and last name.

(I think they underestimate that last number, as I have that many relatives using the same first and last name.)

The last time I ran a google on it, there were only 3 separate users of JohnInKansas, and the other two appeared only briefly and incidentally.

Now which is the better way to identify myself to my friends here, for the purposes of this site?

I use a pen-name because almost everyone else does. The reason they do is that there are some very strange people out there in eLand, and no-one wants to get on their shit-list. When I first went on-line, I wondered what the hell I'd got myself into.   It turned out OK, because I mostly only go to here, nowadays, and this is no worse than a family.

It is significant that the moderation here is seldom visible, despite allowing Guests to post.

'Gurney' is a childhood nickname, given me from an old television programme, 'Gurney Slade.' Nothing to do with gurneys, which may be an American term.

Assuming you meant "criticize", sez who? Kindness and politeness are also valid options, and they are both fully available to everyone who posts here.

As it happens, I do use my real Christian name, assigned at the font and everything. The world has very few Charmions and the name is not obviously female to North Americans who are not intimately familiar with the plays of Shakespere, so I am simultaneously both distinctive and fairly anonymous. While parading around in the great mystery of the Internet, that's how I like to be.

Date: 25 Apr 06 - 10:59 AM

When I first stumbled across the 'cat I was in the process of separating my life from that of an emotionally unstable SO. So I felt I had reason to make it a little tougher to find me. Granted, no one is anonymous on the net, but keeping an alias and your real name completely dissociated will make it a little more difficult to find you via forum postings.
I lurked for a few days before deciding to become a member, and so had time to think of what handle I wanted. At the time, Homeless rather described my life. Not just my condition of shelter, but my life. If home is where the heart is, I was always a wanderer. I never fit well in any group, clique, or stereotype. I've always been viewed, and view myself, as an outsider, so Homeless seemed the most accurate
description in a word.
By my reckoning, it doesn't matter if you use a handle or real name, as long as you pick something to use consistantly. When I was posting regularly, the people here knew who I was and what I was like. I don't see that it matters whether I was know as Homeless or Rob Frumderich. A rose by any other name, and all that happy horsepuckey. What drives me nuts are the people who use multiple names, concurrently or consecutively.

My "given name" is a little long and someone else already had my initials.

As for me, I was at first doesterr, (D as in David, OESTERR as in Oesterreich), just because the computer net at work had assigned that to me. I used that name here for convenience, and used it at HearMe for the same reason.

After HearMe gave out I went to PalTalk. After using doesterr a while I had some problems and I had to re-register, and Paltalk told me that "doesterr" was already in use by "someone else", so I couldn't have that name.

I had already begun using Uncle DaveO as a stage name when I performed, (to avoid confusing potential audiences with my real last name), so I adopted that at PalTalk. "Okay, then let's use Uncle DaveO at Mudcat too, since there's an overlap of populations." And I did.

Just my personal speculation, although I think it fits the history:

Remember CB radio? EVERYbody on CB had to have "a handle". (How THAT started, Clinton, I don't know and don't care mightily, although it just might have come as a transplant from ham radio.)

When the net and the web came along, I think the same people who had been CBers became denizens of the new medium(s), and brought that in-group habit with them.

After that, it's tradition, self-sustaining.

Well, originally, I got into the habit of using nicknames when I used to chat on IRC, back in the mid-90s. Never anything based on my real name, as my real name (Will Anderson) is horribly generic and boring. I've never been fond of my first name, and my last name is a lame, meaningless, patronymic fossil. (Nothing against my great-great-great-grandfather Anders. I'm sure he was lovely. But the dude's been dead for one hundred and thirty fucking years, already) Also, I find it easier to remember people by their colourful nicknames than by their real, dull, every day names. This could just be because I'm "bad with names." But, especially with common names like John, Sarah, Mary, Peter, Steve, Bill, etc., without a face, they all just meld into one person for me. And adding the initial letter of the surname to the nickname just makes it sound like pre-school, IMO. I try to give others something a bit more memorable to work with than "WillA." I know, I'm incredibly considerate. You're welcome.

Anyways, using nicknames just sort of crossed over with me from IRC into other sorts of online communications, forums, etc. And, as the years have passed, I've stuck with "Lepus Rex" mainly because it ties together most of my online activity from the late 90s (when I started using the name exclusively) to the present. I'll often use my real name alongside or instead of "Lepus Rex," especially when conversing with people I know in the flesh. But, like I said, I like to tie it all together. So people know that asshole Lepus Rex who used to post on the Mudcat Forum is the same asshole who used to bitch about Sergei Bodrov on the IMDB forums. Or whatever.

Jesus, I've given this far too much thought.
