    Talking username--whats behind it?

    i was wondering with all the aliases we use on the internet forums, galleries, and social networking sites, whats behind your username here in .com?

    ill start of with mine

    adubo, is a two part name... well the first part is my name. got it from my dad, my real name is Andrew and they called me "Adu", removing the "N" sound and the "R" sound. they thought its easier to call me that way.

    the second part, which is adobo, a native dish commonly cooked with pork/chicken in soy sauce garlic bay leaves and pepper corn.

    its one of my favorite native Filipino dishes so i thought it was funny incorporating it with my name. just for laughs


    it (adobo) looks something like this

    chicken-adobo


    what about yours? whats behind your unique username?

    My username is my real name.

    I've always disliked the culture of anonymity and have always used my real name online for over twenty years.

    Besides, it is a unique name, why not flaunt it!?

    For a while I was just using my first name "Amin", but more than a couple people thought I was using the general name "Admin" and accused me of being impersonal .
