What made you choose your nickname?

When I registered I didn't know my account name would be my screen name so I wound up with my initials, alg1001. I sound like a robot or something. I wanted the name of a certain tree. Frankly I would settle for algae. Ah, well. After all these years it is a part of my identity now.

Growing up my best friend was the oldest of 4 girls. Her youngest sister was named Breanna, my name is Briana. So we did the typical tricks on her mom when she would call Breanna I would go in and vice versa. Finally one day her mom said, "we have got to come up with a nickname for you!" So they took Symmie from my last name Simmons. I have been Symmie ever since.
My sister calls me Simmie, too! 'Cept with an I, not a Y.
Sincerely,
Simile (Millie) Ross :P :lol: :D :) :wink:

Perfectly fine!! It's all about personal preference... Some folks want to completely hide their identity, while others use their real names and even provide links to personal websites. Another motive for nicknames is that you finally get to pick what name you go by! ;)

So really there isn't a right or wrong way. And however you do it, you're in good company!
