    Username ideas

    I've had a variety of usernames over the past however many years, and each had their own email address.
    I want to settle on one username and one email address but keep drawing a blank on good username ideas (RabbieBurns, if you're reading this, your input is NOT needed )

    Any ideas?

    At this school we use the year that they started, 5 first letters of their surname and 3 first letter of their first name. So when I was a student here my username was 04grindtho

    I would suggest going on a random username generator, and closing your eyes whilst you click "next"

    After a pre-determined time, you open your eyes, and the first thing you see is your new username!

    That worked for me, many years ago, and I like to think that I have aerospacemango pretty much wrapped up on the major sites

    LOL!!!

    So....you start again, until your eyes rest on one that is not so offensive to your eyes!!!!

    It may take awhile.....but it's gotta be better than MidnightMan hasn't it??? (Sorry Hightower....No offence meant!)

    MidnightMan sounds like a shady character that people would invoke to scare the bejeezus out of themselves....Not an intelligent, tech-savvy person.................Surely??

    I'd definitely go with the funny-ish username thing. I've gone for that as an aspiring tech and still relatively green as it allows you to be pleasant and not too much is expected of you! If I were called, say, Windows XPert 2000 v1.22 people might think I knew what I was talking about! El_Nombre means I can get away with asking all the silly questions I need to as part of the learning process, and have the majority of my posts behind a certain red door and nobody (really) minds. I hope.

    A few I'd go/have gone with that the filter won't cry about:

    Bertstare
    MischiefMonster
    Umad?
    IHopeThisUsernameWillFi
    M0derator

    Edit - If you're totally stuck and want a comical name, browse some of the shadier forums out there. You'll be spoiled for inspiration.

    I know, I wish I beat you to the tech-savvy front that is 'aerospacemango'. Instead I'm stuck with a name like Hightower thus giving the illusion I'm big, bald, and black.

    You'd be amazed at how many people have said that to me, over the years.......erm....wait....Errrr....Nope, you're the first, and even then, I can smell a whiff of sarcasm in the air!!!!

    Mind you, that could be the coronation chicken sandwich that I had for lunch!!!


    FYI: aerospace = Aerospace Systems Operator (Trade Group 12 - RAF) mango = Girlfriend (at the time) favourite fruit!

    That is the genesis of my moniker!
