General What's in a nickname?

Ronnie_7_old

Guest
Just wondering how everyone got their forum names.
Some are obvious but others not so much.


Ronnie - My first name, Sherron, with the end cut off and -nie added on the end. One of a few nicknames I have, it actually started off with Ron.

7 - my favourite number

HEJ! :wave:

Eule (german word for owl- a nickname, grandmum gave me, because, everytime I get tired, I seem to look like an owl :sleep: 24, because that's my lucky-number!)

Greetz from Eule and mum (whose nickname is "atta", but I only call her mum LOL)

Haha...that's interesting, I was all but sure it was because you loved Cristiano Ronaldo (as he also wears the number 7 shirt..)

My forum name is unique to RL - with a slight 'hip' touch i.e. - playdaball instead of play the ball.

I was close to running with a favourite players name. The choices were:

Fred Ah Koui
Olsen Filipania
Kurt Sorenson
Mark Graham

In the end I couldn't decide on which one to use.

Northern_Union

Guest
Mines taken from the original name for rugby league when clubs of northern England broke away from the snobs of London and southern England. Joe Platt was the man we now have to thank for our wonderful game, it was he who took the 20 odd clubs away from the RFU and he who coined the name Nothern Union way back in 1895.

IIBLACKIISTRONG was a tattoo a close friend that passed had. I also associate it with the Kiwi's (jersey colour) and I suppose the colour of most of the players. So black relating to both jersey colour and to a lesser extent race, and strong relating to how dominant most of our players have been in a physicall sense over the years. Nothing to do with coffee or tea.

Somehow I cocked things up when I joined the forum and ended up with the name of a 1980s-1990s grass roots full back who like Wade Mackinnon was a mean stepper but was too lippy to referees.Ironically the subject is now a referee.

I agree with you.

Imagine if someone else had as their handle "2White2Smart" or "White Power" or something. I'm pretty sure it would be frowned upon...

"mrblonde" from the movie "Reservoir Dogs". Figured I'd be OK unless a "mrorange" came along.
