Topic tags/keywords: question

I already asked this question several years ago but with so many new members, I believe that it is worth repeating.

I have a username and a nickname.
My nickname is Frenchy, it is quite obvious why.
My username is B2rtch.
This come from my first name: bertrand and my last name challier.
Bertrand became: “b2rt” and “ch” from my last name.

I think mine is fairly obvious :) I’m really surprised it was available since I am new here

Bert, I assumed your nickname was like “Be too rich”. Guess I never noticed the “t” in the middle.

Mine is derived from my inclination for bicycling and my birth year 1949.
The bike in my avatar is made of bamboo, by the way.

Fun topic Bert. I have spoken with you, so your nickname Frenchy makes sense to me.
I personally can be read better than I sound though a misspell escapes me now and again.

My LJ nickname sort’o points to my limited wood working skills. A dear cousin christened me Buyo some thirty years ago for no good reason. As I recall, he suddenly could not recall my given name of Mario and pulled a Buyo out of somewhere. A few years later in the group of charlatanes I associated with, there was a mythical lousy handyman we referred to as Eligio Masilla. Masilla is the word used in my Spanish to refer to wood putty. Eligio’s work was reportedly so lacking in precision that it required lots of masilla to compensate. I put those two together when I first signed up with LJ. Keeping it real as they say.

My user ID is what I was initially set up with for the computer network in college. I won’t admit how long ago that was… initials and first few of my last name…

Mine is too obvious, the W is for Weddell.

Bert, when I first saw your username I thought it was an oddly contorted spelling of Birch, but then I saw your signature and realized it is an oddly contorted spelling of your name, the ch probably being part of your last name. Finally, I was right about something! :)

My user name is pretty obvious, nicknames however aren’t repeatable in a nice forum like this. :)

mine probably isn’t all that obvious.. Some of you may remember “the jerky boys” back in the early 90’s, the cd’s of prank phone calls.. Back then my friends & I got in the habit of calling each other some of the nonsensical nicknames – that one stuck. At least it’s better than “butt nutt”

I choose PineChopper since pine is about the only wood I can afford to work with.

here you go GARY

This name was popularized in the late 1920s the American actor Gary Cooper (1901-1961), who took his stage name from the city of Gary in Indiana where his agent was born
