    Default What does your username mean?

    I started this thread because I love user names. A user name tells a lot about a person regardless of whether it's just your name or not. By using just your name you are pretty much revealing yourself to the world as you are ..straightforward nothing to hide. More creative user names indicates something you are fond of whether its a memory or part of your heritage.

    So share the story behind your user name.

    My user name is Spanglishqueen:

    Well I'm Puerto Rican, I was born in Puerto Rico and raised in TN. I grew up in a household in which my parents encouraged us to speak both languages. When I didn't know a word in English I'd say it in Spanish. Therefore I ended up speaking a combination of both languages hence the word Spanglish. And since I did it so often even with my Spanish clients I became Spanglish queen.

    So muchas gracias everybody for listening to me.

    My username comes from my high school years...me and my girls made nicknames for ourselves based on cars we wished we owned...LOL mine was a Lexus but we had to make it ghetto beautiful so I became Leksie (pronounced Lexy, spelling is different because it looks better graffitied) my bestfriend was Sadie after Mercedes and so on... These were the best years of my life and Leksie is just an alias (usually was for the ugly boys) but I like the ambiguity of it for online use. I've warmed up to you all so now you'll see me as my friends do...Natasha

    Cool

    What fun!!

    This is a great thread, Spanglishqueen. I am very much a "name" person....I agree, I get a feel for people by their name...real and screen names.

    I go ahead and use both of my names on here now, but when I first joined, because this was the first forum I'd ever been on, I remained anonymously, Rastagirl, for awhile.

    Where did Rastagirl come from....... ???????

    I am a HUGE, HUGE Bob Marley fan!!!!

    And I absolutely LOVE Jamaica!! And Reggae!!

    Last year when I joined this forum, I was planning my first trip to Jamaica....a dream-come-true, 25th wedding anniversary trip. So, after pondering a few screen names, Rastagirl kind of felt natural to me. It also felt positive and uplifting, after going through so much misery and pain and suffering through my life with Lupus. I wanted something in keeping with my positive mental attitude. Without that.....I would be nowhere!

    Oh, and that trip to Jamaica last June was the most amazing time I've ever had, anywhere in this world.

    How did I come by Grime. Nope its not like dirt. Our youngest had it one his truck plate so I stole it from him. It comes from our last name Grimm like the fairy tales. I should have used a capitol E so it would be GrimE. You would say Grimm-eeeee.

    My first initials from my first, second and last name are D.E.B. My real name is Dagmar( I am German), nobody can ever pronounce it and everybody always says " Your name is WHAT?" So I made Debbie out of D.E.B.
