So what is the story behind your user name or what does it mean?

I have come accross some very interesting F10 owner user names in this forum some are little obiviuos and some are very intriguing....

Care to share the story behind your usernames ? if it is not a secret?


Let me start with mine... I dont think i have to explain it it is pretty obivious....

DreamCar, Since BMW was my dream car from a long time.

Didnt want to buy a used one , wanted to buy only through european delivery etc:- ... so it was a dream for some time and hence the name

It's connected to my real name and my Swedish heritage. More details would reveal more than I'm willing to share.

Username goes back to 1998. Was singing up for AOL Instant Messenger (yes, remember those days!) and needed a screen name. Didn't want to use my real name, it was early in the morning and I was two cups of coffee in. Hands were shaking as I was sitting perched over the keyboard racking my brain for a clever name. I said out loud to the guy in the cube next to me, "jeebus I need to switch to decaf".

Name stuck.

What about Ralph Malph from Happy Days?

Mine is my initials, followed by my last name. I have nothing to hide!

It was a nickname I picked up when I was a High School wrestler.

Yes, I know that doesn't help anyone understand what it means, bu-ha-ha (evil laughter).

Goes back to when I was getting an email account at the age of 15...I think that was 1996? In any case, I drive really fast, so my Mom thought it would be a good idea.

It is just a car paint name, nothing more to it.
Used to sail lasers as well, but that user name was allready taken.
I never wrestled, but rowed and I am not very good at craps.

My first name, last name initial and area code. No particular reason for it. I had a really silly screen name and needed to change it. My (8 at the time) year old daughter picked the old one out.
