How Did You choose your Nickname?
How did you choose a nickname for this forum ,if you use one?
There are some fantastic names in here.
Mine is Empress from when I once joined an msn community, msn gave me the name empress, so I have kept on using variations of it since.

My nickname is made up from my first name (Anthony) and the Trip at the end because, I'm taking a trip around the Internet.
"I made up the nickname many years ago and it stuck."

On the old Wigan message boards, I used the name "dave" but, someone else came on using the same name. I then decided to copyright it.

Mine is a shortened version of another name I use sometimes, arrowhead, which is a reference to my love of the game of darts

My Mum nicknamed me 'aussiepom' after I recently obtained my British citizenship (thanks to my Mum being a Wigan girl) and my first name is Sally but everyone calls me Sal.
