From: ClaireBear

Well, my first name is Claire. My father called me Claire Bear when I was small. And to clinch the deal, I was working for the Great Dickens Christmas Fair and Pickwick Comic Annual in the late '70s and thought there was something missing from the recreated 19th-c. London streets, so based on the painting on the cover on the 1975 Penguin Book of English Folk Songs (way-too-small picture here), I built myself a bear suit and became the Great Dickens Christmas Bear and Pickwick Comic Animal. (Ask Dave Swan if you don't believe me!) My partner rented me out for waltzes at 25 cents a dance, or 50 cents with the muzzle in place. He had me on a long chain, and whenever anyone wanted to whirl me around in a glorious Vienneze waltz -- and there were a few takers -- he'd have to run in circles around the happy couple in order to keep from entangling us with the chain. It was hilarious.

So there you go.

Topsie -- I was wondering if that was it. I am a lifelong Morris fan and undertook a pilgrimage to put a wreath of wildflowers on his grave a few years ago. That visit to Kelmscot is a jewel-like memory I will treasure until I die.

It's my Choctaw name-the nickname my family & close friends use, as opposed to my legal name which my mother did not choose. My father bent to his family's demand to name me after my great aunt, so he filled out the name for birth certificate purposes & signed his & my mother's names to the hospital form. My mother is still mad about it.

(well thats true too for Oregon, Washington, Baja California, but I live in California...did I say that?)
I could be John on the Left Coast, but that's too political, and I'm more right than left anyway.
Then, again, I could be from Ghana and be on the left coast of Africa.
Or I could be from Wales, on the left coast of Britain, however am from California.
But you know that because I told you that three times before.
I could be John on the Sunrise Coast if I lived in, say New Jersey or I could be John on the Sonrise Coast if I were a Born Again Christian (but I'm not).

I took all the possible combinations of the Gettysburg Address and after 49 attempts came up with "catspaw." Later I found out the acual Gettysburg address was 945 Pickett Lane, Gettysburtg, PA..... but I was stuck with catspaw. This was way back in '98. Another member at that time who is also still around called himself "The Shambles" and I later learned this was slang for "broke-dick, pain in the ass, mook."

Now the site owner here has a really creative handle. His name is Max Spiegel and his handle is Max. Really cool huh? See, though what you don't know is that Max is an American Indian word meaning "guy who gets kicked in the balls by Spaw".......either that or "River of Death." But then again all Indian words seem to translate into "River of Death."

You probably noticed that I wasn't to PC there with the "American Indian" reference but we've run a load of threads about that very subject and we never reach any agreement, so I gave up. If you hear I've been found with a tomahawk in my skull, well, you figure it out.

We've run about 97 of these threads in the past 8 years so I hope ypou didn't mind me fuckin' around some with this one......All except for the part about Shambles which is true, at least to the best of my knowledge......although I could well be wrong, in which case I apologize.....a little..............

'Azizi' is a Kiswahili name that means "rare & precious", or at least so I was told by the male friend who gave me this name when I was 20 years old.

I've used this name as my first name ever since.

I've been told that the Arabic version of this name "Aziza" means "powerful" and "dear". And those meanings work for me too.

Handles? We don't need no steenkin' handles....

I thought it would be nicer than Fogey -as in old fogey. here I rest,sitting behind a mahogony desk with my three piece tweed suit(buttoned trousers of course), while the spiders weave webs in the darkness of my oak panelled study. I note from my pocket watch that it is soon time to have my milk and whisky, and settle down to read the Times, before retiring to my four poster, that has been neatly turned down by my valet! Strange- he doesnt turn down much else I note. Wish they'd spell it with a capital F!

Rædwulf - Rede + wolf - Wolf Counsel

"Cunning" really is my middle name.

(The modern version is Ralph, after my maternal g/f. The full name translates as "The god-like cunning son of the mighty army" & explains 3 of the 6 names that currently belong to me)

My family (my mother, my father, and my father's wife) were shunned by my father's sister. Her daughter - my cousin, found out about my birth but was never allowed to meet me. (she was 11 when I was born) She wrote "Joybell's birthday" in her birthday book. It took her 56 years to find me but she still had the old birthday book. I liked the nickname.
Cheers, Joy

I think we still have a nursery colony of Little Brown Bats under our roof. Before we stuffed up the opening in the front of the house (forcing them to use the opening on the opposite side of the house, the side with the very uneven slope making lousy footing for a tall ladder), they lived above the bedroom. The "adolescents" would go out on their own around the first week in July (here in New Hampshire, at least, get confused and sometimes end up in the bedroom. Now they live above the guest room, I think. I should probably put the little ceramic "bat room" bat-shaped plaque on the guest room door, but that might REALLY confuse guests as the BATH room is just to the left.

And I LIKE bats...

Lee

To paraphrase Sandy Denny "we'll meet on the 'LEJ'". Plenty of room for two. Though usually when somebody has referred to me by the LEJ monicker it gets pronounced "Leige" for some reason, giving it a medieval spin.

Last year at the Getaway, I was called Leige and Ernie as well as the full Lonesome EJ. I woke up with a grin when Amos pulled his car up at 5:30 am in front of my cabin for the returning airport ride,leaned into the dark room, and intoned in a quiet and somber voice "Lonesome?"

(I'm a vintage car nut with a slightly morbid sense of humor, and I'd just gotten back from the Museum of Funeral History, which I highly recommend if you ever find yourself in the North Houston vicinity.)

I also once knew a horse named Scoville (because he was black and worked part-time pulling an antique hearse at reenactments . . . ).

As a belated introduction:

My name is Helen (and if you've ever seen a British guy called something like "Pat Whistler" on this site, I'm his daughter FYI), but Helen is a sucky name, and I get called everything from Nell to Hen.

Oh yes, and I'm tall. Very tall. 'Tall' is almost an understatement. However, it's good for playing the 'cello.

Helen has always been one of my favourite feminine names, actually. There again, I hated Ralph before I hit my teens (Happy Days & Ralph Malph were on TV in the UK at the time). Then I found out what it meant & why it was one of my names. Liked it ever since, though I still prefer my chosen variants!

Different perspectives, I guess...
