What's the story behind your Board Name and Profile Picture?
« on: Thursday 03 February 2011, 08:37 am »
I am curious about the reason why people choose their board names and profile pictures. I think it would be fun to share.

My pic, it's just kooky like me.

My name came from a song (by Marilyn Manson...I was a huge fan and still am of his earlier music), and I thought it would be a beautiful name. I have been using it everywhere online for nearly 10 years! I'd change my name to Eden Eye legally, except it would break my mother's heart. :) lol

I look forward to what everyone else has to say.

Ah I knew that's where your name came from!
 
For the same reason as you, because of the Manson song, my name is supposed to be Coma White. I just had trouble registering the full name. I'd change it if a mod could do it! I'm not a former Manson fan though, still a diehard.

I also think Coma White would be an awesome Rainbow Brite character  :D

My Erica is my real first name and V is my real last initial. Boring, but it works.

My avatar is Duchess Ravewaves because she is awesome, obviously! When I started collecting and rediscovered LLL I put a little purple streak in my already-black hair in honor of her. :P

Eilonwe is an old character of mine. (No relation to Princess Eilonwy. Pronounced differently, too.) I haven't written her in years, but her name is almost always available as a username, so I've stuck with it.

My pic is Orchid from Rose Petal Place. I never cared for her as a kid, but she's my favorite of the original 6 girls now. I might change my pic soon though. RPP collecting isn't what it used to be.

ETA: There. Changed it to Dream Gazer from Moon Dreamers! She's the only one I had as a kid and I've just gotten into collecting the line.

My Name is the one I use on another site to keep things simple and my picture is one of my toys. He is about an inch high and is purple in color with a yellow gas mask on and a black radiation sign painted on him. I could not resist this guy he was 25 cents at a flea market.

I used this name because about 6 years ago I joined a pokemon forum and most of the pikachu related names were taken. Then I used it in my myspace URL and I've been using it since.

The av was an old picture I had in my photobucket account.

I love and collect slugs and snails, and I "charm" them, kinda like a snake charmer  ::). My profile picture is supposed to be a troll with LLL pixie tails in her hair but I can't get it to work. I collect trolls and pixie tails.

I had a childhood friend who started calling me "Angel" in the 7th grade and it sort of stuck. Ten years ago I started collecting Care Bears seriously, thus Angel Bear became my online name.

My name: It's from Sora from Digimon. I use that name whenever I can get it. It's my internet name (even when I can't get it as my username, I still think of myself as 'Sora')

I chose my username Jadedoz, because my real first name is Jade and in Aussie (Australian). Some people would also say that I am rather jaded!!
