Thread: What's with all the names....?

  1. #1

    What's with all the names....?

    No, not an enquiry into the occasional spat that crops up on the site.....

    It's Friday afternoon, and I'll 'fess up to having slightly wandering concentration , so I've dipped into SD - gives me a brief break from the fairly complex proposal analysis spreadsheet I'm currently building - and after looking at numerious threads, a question has popped into my head:

    Why is your username what it is?

    Some of them are fairly obvious - I think, although I stand to be corrected - but there do appear to be some pretty obscure ones on here. So - what made you choose the one you have??

    I'm happy to start......."Merlin" was the name that I was originally going to call my spaniel, but we ended up calling him Max instead; when I joined SD, I needed to come up with summat, 'Merlin' popped into my head, and that was that. No wizard/Arthurian legend links, nor a propensity for Britain's smallest bird of prey - just a 'spare dog name'.

    Who's next??
    Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch

    "...Nicely just doesn't cut the cheese....." A new twist on management-speak courtesy of a colleague.

    Scrumbag, as a rugby fan it amuses my puerile sense of humour and can describe my general behaviour and demeanour!
