I picked rouge for my new handle because I love the word, quite literally. I love the sound of it and the way it looks and everything about it. I am a nerd, I know, hee hee.

I also like the definition of it according to my dashboard dictionary widget:

"A person whose behavior one disproves of but who is nonetheless likable and attractive."
....reminds me of how Rogueboy's parents most likely thinks of me because I don't fit into their cookie-cutter world.... =P

Oh and deschatsrouge, I have a lovely orange boy too; marmalade-y cats are my most favourite. =)

Aw deschatsrouge, marmaladey cats are fantastical! You have reminded me of our old ginger cats - the first was a lady, and she was definitely the smartest and most communicative cat I've ever come across. The second was a grumpy boy and was somewhat less smart - he spent his entire life confused, or angry, or angry and confused. I miss them both muchly.

I am called deschatsrouge because I have a chat rouge or an orange marmalade cat and I have always identified with them. I believe that chats rouge are superior to all other colors of cats. They are thought to be smarter, friendlier, and they are the color of cat most frequently used in advertising. Morris of nine lives started this trend. Oddly chats rouge are mostly male the gene for their color is on the male chromosome. Only one in 10,000 chats rouge is female. That makes me one in 10,000.

I use foryoursplendor because there is a Simpsons episode where Bart is emancipated. He goes to live in a loft, where Tony Hawk also coincidentally lives. Homer comes over to visit Bart and sees all the expensive home accessories he's bought with Homer's money, so Homer grabs Bart's throat and screams something to the effect of "I pay for your splendor!". I thought the name suitable for myself as I work as an artist, making all sorts of splendorous things.

I agree Oly is fun to visit. That's what lured me there in the first palce. I went to Yo-Yo-A-Go-Go and the very first Lady Fest and thought it would be a great place to live but, sadly, it was not.

Rudderless, I love the story of Mr. Beeps! It's cute. smile.gif

Hooray for fake names!

Yay to FunnyBird and MaybeSparrow for great taste in music!

I'm thirtiesgirl because I like the '30s...and I'm still in my thirties for another half second. (And once I reach my 40s, I'd like to pretend I'm in my 30s.)

On other forums, I've been Aqualisa, named after the Moonshake song (and it kind of sounds like my real name). I've written music columns for friends' indie music mags under the name Carmelita Honeybun, a made-up name that I thought sounded amusing. And I used to host my college radio show with the name Hostess Cupcake, which coincided with stories I used to tell on the air of my imaginary band, Hostess Cupcake and the Rama Lama Ding Dongs. If I ever get back on the air, I plan to use the name Anita Huggankiss, middle name Amanda. I also have an Italian alter-ego, Donatella Mortadella, who kind of represents my 'goth' side, and just because I like Italian names with those mellifluous double L's.

And since we're discussing names, I have to tell you that I know a guy who legally changed his first and last name to Dresden Black. I'm not kidding. That's really his name. And yes, he does dress in black.

oooh! I have never seen this thread before! I love hearing the screen name origins.

GT, you have another username now? I like it! Love your pic too, girl, you know you're a hot mama.

My name comes from a song. My mister used to manage a band and they have a song I love called Karianne. I used to be Karianne here til the dingos ate it. Now I'm just kari.

I thought I answered this before but it must have been in the previous thread. "Kitten Beaumont" was a name I created as a fun "bar name." It sounded like someone who was fun and sexy and really, really smart, all qualities that I sometimes struggle to find in myself. Over time I've stopped needing this name as "Kitten" and "Jennifer" have become much more the same person but I like that it is still my name here. After all, Bust helped me realize that I am fun and sexy and really, really smart. biggrin.gif

I figured I look like a Lily Anne. It's young, curious, and playful like me. I wanted something that reflected my Southern roots (two-name monikers rule!) and sounds cheerful.

But now I see. Hee, I like it.

I'm glad you explained that IHO. Until now every time I saw post by you I wondered who Oly was and what he'd done wrong - I was even starting to feel sorry for him - "poor Oly, he can't have been THAT bad..." laugh.gif

I named myself after a Mercury Rev song from the album Deserter's Songs (one of my all-time-favourites).

My handle comes from when I was living in the hell hole known to many as Olympia, Washington. It's a very terrible place with with terrible people that all wear these dumb shirts that say "I heart Oly" (Oly is what the locals call the town). I hated it there and I thought ihateoly would have made a nice shirt and a nice handle.
