    What's the story behind your "Screen" Name?

    Just for fun. How did you come up with your user name here at the forum? What does it mean?

    Me? Its my name so I know I wont forget it. Now what was my password again... hehehehe

    For me, it was just my usual blazing creativity. My name is Richard, and I live in the town of Leesburg, so I am Rich in Leesburg (abbreviated) in case I forget where I live.

      My middle name is Stone, and everyone calls me Stoney, so its basically just my name.

        Cool post idea Jon!

        I used to have Siberian huskies, and I would take my male, Starbuck, with me in his cage in the back of my truck. As obvious as those dogs are, people would still inevitably ask me what kind of dog he was. I though 'I should get a rear window decal that says Husky so people will stop asking me that'. Then I thought I should get a personalized license plate instead. "Husky" was taken, so "Huskee" became my plate, and still is all these years later. Spelling names with two Es is a family trait on my wife's side, so that fit well.

        Then it became my screen name for various online things, then my BBQ name. I used to be heavier than I am now, but I am still a tad husky so Huskee fits well on a couple levels. No one calls me that in real life though, except Meathead, because I call him Meathead.

          Since you are from Michigan, I just assumed you were a Michigan Tech grad!

        My name doesn't really have much of a story behind it.

        When my grand-daughter was born, someone commented that her daddy (my son) looked like me, except for my (fuzzy) beard. So my grand-daughter calls me FuzzyDaddy and most of my family does too.

              I'm just seeing this post for the first time. I see you're a little guy. Bet you don't get that too often. And I'm the little one in my family at 6'7" 265 lbs. maybe with my extra girth I should have gone with bbqLOAF. Haha.

            Deuce has been my nickname since I was a kid. It's from wearing #2 on my jerseys in every sport I played.

              I am a big rock and roll fan and also have a kawasaki cruiser. When I got my doctorate, my buddy that went to several concerts with me started calling me Dr. Rock. When I bought my bike there was a Riders of Kawasaki forum that I participated in. Combined the two to come up with Dr. ROK which is what I have on my bike license plate.

                Seen the boys about 16 or 17 times. The Mrs & I argue about the actual number. She thinks I forgot about one. If you've ever been to a Stones concert you'll understand how this could have easily happened

                Product of the 60's in the SF Bay Area. So there are many concerts I am told I attended! Remember snippets of some 😎✌ Opp's just noticed how old the thread is, just another 60's moment!

              Twas a transfer from the main site. Apparently JARED was spelled JEROD in the 70's. Surname, a result of that "eastern French speaking Canadians exiled" thing, in the early 18th century.

              Mine is a play on my last name which my old poker buddies used to call me. It just happens to be appropriate for this site.

                Kind of sounds like something from that song "It was a crazy game of Poker"

              I've had mine (without the OG) since the early 90's. It comes from Reservoir Dogs. Back in the day I played Doom2 a LOT and was assigned the nickname by some friends I played with. Ever since Breaking Bad came out MrWhite is a difficult name to acquire, so I tend to go with OGMrWhite.
