Posted:My nickname use to be "Bones". I aquired that while doing some -work- (could tell you what, but I'd have to kill you) in Sarajevo, Bosnia a few years ago. For security purposes, we couldn't use are real names.When I came back to the United States (after 6 1/2 years in Europe), I wanted a name which would reflect where I came from. Since I lived in Germany most of the time, I chose "Tanzen"...a German verb meaning "to dance".Tanzen------------------Ravers don't share glowsticks!

Posted:hi everyone. my god this is my first post in an extremely long time. there are a ton of new people, well hi to all you kids that don't know me. i'm girl from mars,aka the martian, aka n8s fiance, aka n8s' martian. i got my name because i am one of the guys here at home. all of my closest friends at male. there is a debate going on about if in fact i actually am a male or not. i know n8 can name off every reason that i am believed to be male. the only thing that keeps me technically female are my obvious female parts. i think the only time i get girly is when i'm PMSing. so according to the saying men are from mars , women are from venus.....i am, the girl from mars. ------------------the music feeds my soul that glows and grows with every spin i take.

Posted:well.. i'll take a shot at responding to this... this was my first real nickname when i was in college.. stuck for a while.. untill i wrecked myself on my dirtbike.. and i got the nickname 'gimp' ... a little over a year ago.. the nickname resurfaced among a whole new group of friends.. who had no idea it was my nickname in the past... heh... here's the story : there was a series of games on the Sega Genesis called Sonic the Hedgehog... had a little sidekick.. a double tailed fox named Tails... if you followed the sonic games at all.. you'd find that Tails real name was Miles 'Tails' Prower or.. Miles per hourfunny thing.. i have hair as red as the fox.. and my name is Miles (later changed to Myles.. i like to be different) so.. people called me tails for 3 reasons... my name is myles, i have red hair, and i like playing sonic.. a lot

now, they have a third reason.. it fits in really well with fire poi

I've searched Google, Hotbot, Lycos, Yahoo, Altavista for Surloch, and the only times it comes up are all to do with me.Anyway, the origin of the name was a dream I had some 4-5 years ago. I was this Bard called Surloch in the dream. Ever since, my online handle has been Surloch. Variously through School and life, I have had these names:'Bomber' Thomson (my real name is Ben Thomson)PsychoBenjiDanathel (character in a book I was writing)Tombstone (Lazerforce Nic)And a few others....

Same seems to be true of the second page as well. Tis kinda sad.....

I usually go for Roz, but cos we already got a Ros, I thought it would be too confusing (I was a lurker here for a few months before registering).Full meaning of Rosalyn according to parents - Rose in running water. Meaning of name according to name book - Big red horse... (Not so happy on that one)

Non-Https Image Link
Blue is an Aussie thing (apparently). It is an ironic name for a redhead. Rudolph I'm not explaining *smiles mysteriously*Snotface is from the movie "Drop Dead Fred", where an imaginary friend played by Rik Mayall insists on calling his child-charge "Snotface" (and making "pants-pie"). It is one of my favourite movies, & my sister used to call me it.Hope that is a little clearer!!!R.[This message has been edited by Rozi (edited 28 March 2002).]

Posted:'Helen' is actually my name on my birth certificate, but I've been know as Dibs since before I was born. I have an older sister who used to call the lump on my mum's tummy a 'Dib' - one fine spring day, the 'Dib' vanished and this ickle, slimey, smelly baby appeared. My sister couldn't understand where the lump had gone or where this 'thing' (me) had come from. She put two and two together and I became 'The Dib' hence Dibs! Yay! Loads of variations on it though:DibblerDibnerDibb dibb dobb dobb'Lady Dibbleton'DibspriteDibsterbut Dibs_star because of the fire connection. And someone once told me on a dark night up a mountain, lying underneath a blanket of stars, that I was the brightest of them all...............

Don't be rude!Does anyone else find it strange that I am completely obsessed with the two most opposing elements, FIRE and WATER? Hmmmm....

Posted:*Dibs changes the bucket* No I did not fall for the line. I probably would have done, if I'd have liked the person that said it, but I wasn't interested. In fact, the person was an absolute loser and I think I may have even laughed out loud when they said it. I'm honestly not a nasty person at all, I promise.I also get called, "Brenhines Tylwyth Teg".
