    Simple for me - back when I was younger I was a big gamer and read Nintendo Official Magazine - where they referred to "Mario" as "Mazza". On a popular forum, "Mazza" on its own was taken so I added some random numbers to the end. Then on other forums I wanted to keep the same identity, so kept the same moniker throughout t' web.

    :awesome:

    I wanted "Toots" (a family nickname), but it was taken, so I went with "Tootles," the closest thing that I can imagine. Tootles was one of the lost boys in "Peter Pan," and he had famously lost his marbles in "Hook."

    My name is Josephine, but I go by the nickname Posy, and when I was a little girl by dad used to call me 'pocketful of Posy' (obviously taken from the 'a pocketful of posies' line of Ring a ring o'roses).

    When I was trying to think of a username for my first e-mail account, I was trying all the obvious ones like Rosy Posy etc, but they were all taken. Then I remembered the 'pocketful of Posy' thing, and knew that probably wouldn't be taken, and it wasn't. I've used it as my username on pretty much everything ever since!

    Basically, I just wanted something really original and imaginative.

    Translated my real name into elvish when LOTR was all cool. Used that for a bit. Shortened it to make it less gay.

    I'm unhealthily obsessed with politics, and my orientiation veers to the left. And my birthsign is leo. So my name alliterates. And it's easy to shorten it to LL :unsure:

    I don't know, i didn't really think it through.

    Some people think it's because i'm left handed. It isn't :p:
