    True that, Morrigoon. We have twice the number of names to remember when we are introduced!

    Re: Personal names...

    I like giving people individual nicknames, too.

    I haven't thought of much for a lot of people, but they're out there.

    IRL I use my real name. I don't really like being called my screen name in public. I don't really pay attention to screen names when I'm reading the board, so at the meets when I'm hearing all these screen names I have no idea who they are anyway.

    Re: Personal names...

    I really don't mind if my name is said. Hardly anyone knows my last name and it's to people I trust. And I only say names of people who don't care about if I do or not.

    Re: Personal names...

    Im not too worried about it. The name I go by with my friends isnt exactly my real name either so its no biggie to me.

    Re: Personal names...

    I personally don't have a preference. Not that many people know my real name. Even fewer actually know my "legal" name. I get refered to has Pengy very often as a nick name and thats cool with me too. Even at meets if someone were to address me as Pengy or Penguin I'd be ok with that, since I pretty much identify myself as that anyway.

    Re: Personal names...

    Hmm, according to that website there are 0 people in the U.S. with my first and last name. Does that mean I don't exist?

    Same here! I tried my last name with all of my family, and 0 turned up, but then I spelled it the way they do in Hungary, and it came up with matches. Weird!

    You're not the only one. Using my "legal" name there is statistically no one in the US with that name, and only 3,018 other people with that first name, which is the the 3176th most popular first name. When I use my "common" name, there are only 7 other people with the same first and last name.

    Sorry Wolfy for derailing your thread...

    Re: Personal names...

    Hehe. Earky.

    I don't mind anyone knowing my real name. It's all good.

    I DO have a soft spot in my heart for my screen name. I just LOVE it when people call me Miss Violet. Especially children. *swoons*

    It's totally understandable to not want your name and the name of your kids out in the open. Even more so if you are a regular member/ visitor of the board and park and most people here know of you. Play it safe... but don't forget to keep it fun!

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Personal names...

    Unless people are using their real names as part of their user names, I have a really hard time remembering everyone's real names. In fact, there are a lot of Micechatters whose real names I still don't know!

    Re: Personal names...

    There are 8 gazillion Jennifers, so being called by name doesn't bug me at all ... but there is only one Indiana Jenn ... I think ... but I'm sure there are lots of Jenns in Indiana ..... oh nevermind.

    On an Angels fan board where I post, my screenname is HaloLove. I've gotten used to being called HL by certain people at the stadium.

    Either way I'm indifferent.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.
