Poll: Knot Name

We haven't done this one in a while - with so many new "faces," thought it would be fun :)What is the origin of your Knot name?  How did you come up with it?  What does it mean?

Re: Poll: Knot Name

  • edited December 2011
    My husband and I have a lot of nicknames for each other.  One of the orignals was Big Sweetie and Little Sweetie.  One night, I signed up on The Knot before we were engaged and giggled to myself that my "username" would be LittleSweetie.  Then, I discovered the boards and realized I couldn't change it!  Oh well - it stuck, and it's unique :)

    Yeah, username = email address (first intitial last name).  I signed up on the knot before using the message boards, and now I'm stuck with it.  So not creative or cute...

    It's the AOL username (katematch) that my dad assigned to me back when I was like 10.  I've used it for everything ever since!  But since I've started going by Katrina and my last name changed, it doesn't fit quite as well.....

    That's okay hkiesling.  Ditto, but mine is the same email I've had since highschool, so my grad year is included :)  So mine's first initial, half of last name and grad year.  Oh well, nothing like being reminded that you graduated 10+ years ago.

    Mine is my first name and middle name intials then last name.  It's my login and email address for everything.  I also started using the boards and realized I couldn't change it to something more exciting.I like the 8/3/83 bday.  Mine is 3/3/83.

    This is a good poll Little Sweetie!  I've always wondered what others handles meant.

    My dad gave me the nickname Sharkbait years back because Ive watched Shark Week on discovery for about 20 years. When I started working at an aquarium this was also my nickname/call name for the radios. I wanted to use it as my online name, but its taken already on most sites so I started using iheartsharks for everything. When I signed up here I just figured I would still use it instead of picking out a new name because its easy for me to remember.

    My first and middle initials, and my last name. I signed up for the Knot several years ago when my sister was getting married and I was looking at bridesmaid stuff. I've thought about changing my screen name since then, because vendors look on here, and I don't want them to know what I might be asking or saying about them.

    Mine comes from "our" nickname.. if you combine our last names together.. you get Felaney! <3

    I am right up there in the unoriginal catergory. A screen name that I have ALWAYS used, and it is my first name. The 11 was always supposed to be my birthday of 1/10 but when I first used it, it wouldn't allow the 0, so it ended up being 11 instead of 110, and just always stuck.

    SMorriso - first initial and part of my last name. Said like ess-MorrisoThen it got shortened to Smo/SMo when another knottie was too lazy to type the whole thing. It kind of stuck, and I'm called that IRL by friends now and on the boards. Erin - my sister's birthday is 8/2/82 haha.

    Mine is my user name from college.  At UMD they use the first 4 letters of your last name and 4 random numbers.  Well, since my last name is only 2 letters long I got stuck with DO and 2 Xs plus the 0048.Lame-O!

    Ms.Ricka because I call my FI Ricka.  His name is Rick but when I used to get whiny I'd say "Rick-ahhhhhhhhh".  It stuck and now I call his Rick-ah all the time!Our friends started joking once we got engaged that I'd eventually be Mrs.Ricka.  I thought Ms.Ricka was the perfect Knot name and switched to it from eth_luv_2_sing a few months ago (it was my old aol name).

    Beka, did you go to St. Cloud State?  Just a hunch with the screen name. Mine is from my old e-mail address from college (SCSU).  Not very creative, but it's the only way I could remember! 
  • edited December 2011
    Mine's not very creative - my name is Kate and my DH is Tyge, but people sometimes people call him Tyger and he's MY Tyger! :)
  • edited December 2011
    And mrs.ricka, that makes me think of the SNL skit with Amy Poehler as Caitlin where she says "Riiiiick, Rick, Rick, Rick" with a lisp all the time. Haha! I know mrs.katematch knows what I'm talkin' bout - she does a mad Caitlin impression.

    Oh great post! My mom, sister and I all have "Marie" as our middle name, so my dad calls us his three-Marie's. I like it. It is also my email address, I guess I made this email address when I was 24 :)

    Mine is from UMD also- first four letters of last name plus 4 digits, which I think they assign in chronological order.  Therefore, in the history of the U, I am the 1,282nd berg...  I'd like to change mine too, but didn't think it was allowed or possible.

    I LOVE the Amy Poehler skit.  So funny, I haven't seen that in awhile.  I might have to take a work break in a bit and find it online!

    Another vote for super original here.  He's Jim, & I'm Aim(ee) and we are getting married in '09.PP: You can 'change' your username, but you are really just creating a new account.  You would have to assign a new email to the account you are currently using, then create a new account with the email that used to be tied to your now old account.  Make sense? :)

    I think mine is pretty self explanatory!  I'm a SongBird!  I was always singing...with church, junior high choir, high school choir, showchoir.  Singing and music are my life.  I consider live music to be the equivalent of going to church for me...it's very spiritual.  The 531 is for May 31st...which is our dating anniversary.  I've been using SongBird531 for EVERYTHING!

    Mine has been my aol screen name/e-mail since middle school. Bimbi has been my nickname from my family for as long as I can remember. It means child/baby in French I guess. the numbers are a combo of my fave # (28) and my year of birth (84).

    First name + wedding date.  Not very original, but like others, I didn't use the boards right away, nor did I realize when I signed up that you couldn't change it later :)
