    My user name (Amin) is my first name. A couple of members thought my user name was "Admin", but if you look closely, there's no "d" in there :smile:.

    We have some members with very interesting user names. I'd be interested to learn why everyone chose theirs.

    My name is Christina Louise and so Christilou seems the easiest thing to remember. We have so, so many passwords, user names etc. these days that its getting ridiculous. I have had to write them all down somewhere, if only I could remember where:rofl:

    It was either this or Supreme Ultiimate Wigglepig Poobah...or going for an obscure Bob Dylan reference.

    It's a reference to a Simpsons' episode in which Homer gets Mojo the helper monkey. I try to keep the same screen name everywhere I go, i.e. AVSForum, Xbox Live, etc.

    (circa 1950's) A poser (faker) surfer.

    One who drives to the beach with a board on the car, sticks
    his board in the sand and tans and picks up Betties


    Used this plus my year of graduation from high school on a local
    surf forum. The 66 was necessary as there was already a hodad.....

    Just started using it all over the net..... it grew... like a fungus :eek:

    We bought our house from the family of a very old woman named Mabel, and I built a little recording studio in the back room. I think of it as "Mabel Sound."

    On music forums, I'm inverseroom, a type of 1980's reverb.

    Although that may seem obvious, someone may well have guessed that your last name was Paris :smile:.

    Back in the late 80's and early 90's, some of my friends called me "Armani." One day in my college years, I came up with a nickname for a friend named Conrad. The nickname was "Radius Minimus." He turned it around and called me "Armanius Maximus." This was waaaaay before the movie "Gladiator" came out.

    These are my initials, well sort of my initials depending upon whether or not we have to go by our "legal" names or not. Legally, I am not "BB" but let's leave it at that.:flowers_2:

    Mine is a free translation of the Chinese word "Zuiko," which also happens to be the brand name of Olympus lenses. It is said that the word was also formed as a contraction of the name of the Olympus optical plant, Mizuho Kogaku-kenkyujo. I use Zuiko as my user name on another forum, so there is a link.
