I've been trying to work out why ppl chose the names that they did. Mine was supposed to be Flashheart, after the character in the Blackadder TV series (played by my hero Rik Mayall), but the name had already been taken, so I shortened it to Flashby.
Mine is because i speak too much, so by naming myself the opposite, i would remind myself not to talk all the time, and maybe my babbling wouldnt be notices as much if my name indicated the exact opposite... and then it just looks/sounds great :)
comes from Queenslanders and was turned into a nickname by my husband. Queenslanders say "ay?" at the end of every sentence (much like the Canadians and New Zealanders) and I was trying to explain the dad's half of my family, and they're all a bit slow, too much sun and all that, and it tickled my husband's fancy and he started calling me Katieay.
How strange to be adding a post to a thread that´s over 14 years old. Maybe SN could be left as a memorial to the George W. Bush-era fun times. 9/11, the Iraq war, the Janet Jackson boob incident (well done JFury for scooping all the points on that story!). Happy days.
