What is in a name?

puppymom2

As I read all of the posts on this terrific site I often wonder how each of you came up with your online name.

I will start. I have three dogs. Zoey, Bella, and Tasha. Because I have so much trouble remembering things I use the same username everywhere. It should have been just puppymom or puppymom3 but I had a muscle twitch at just the wrong moment and I became puppymom2 to all of you.

I can't wait to read all of your responses. I am hoping it will help me remember more about each of you.

Good night,

Traci aka puppymom2

I chose my name because I am still hopeful that they will find a cure for fibromyalgia and the other illness that I have, Lupus, asthma, diabetes, sleep apnea, insomnia, spinal stenosis, electrical problems within my heart, etc, etc. Too many to list.

I WILL ALWAYS REMAIN HOPEFUL, SO FOR NOW I USED STILLHOPEFUL

Malaluka is my version of Melaleuca,it is a paper bark tree the leaves on my favourite smell of lemon and the flowers resemble small bottle brushes cream or lemon in colour,they always remind me of where I belong.

My many neices and nephews had trouble pronouncing my name when they were very young .

The ones on hubbys' side came up with (I think thru their mom) with Auntie M. and it stuck. I love it when (even tho' they are all adults now), I hear ""Auntie M."" ring out over a room full of people.

When I came online, there were no groups that ""Auntie M."" wasn t ""taken"" so I just stuck with the Auntie and added the last 4 digits of our home phone # to it.

Nothing very exciting here. My name is Tina, but that was already taken. So I added an 'L' for my middle name, Louise. The 'A' came about as a joke between me and a couple of friends Wink
