There are some pretty unusual/interesting user names on this site so I thought it might be fun to see where they came from!

i'm called Eeyore cos I'm like Eeyore a lot of the time...! I even have an Eeyore mug, which Cate is using at the moment. Without my permission. Still, we haven't had an earthquake recently.

My childhood nickname was lissy blissy (alice -> aliss -> alissy -> lissy -> lissy blissy) and I like it and think it's really cute! I was also called apple-dumpling but I'm too lazy to type that out

Mine is just simpler than my real (unmanageable) name; Mallachai.

Grrr... it's not like you were going to use the mug yourself, and besides, it wasn't even me that made tea in it anyway :rolleyes:

There ain't no inspiration behind my username, I was in a hurry when I registered and couldn't be bothered to think of a better one :rolleyes:

My name is sharon, which is shortened to shaz (hated by most of my family), and I just like to extend it to shazza. (Wes hates it)

A 'pig in a poke' is something of questionable value, such as myself.
Awwwwww! But haven't you kept pigs or something?

Hmmm. I feel almost sick when people call my boyfriend "Daz" or "Dazza". YUK!

It got worse when an awful 16-year-old girl he worked with called him "dazza wazza woo wah".

Started off as a joke and it just sort of stuck (much more so than any of my other online names did).
