Whats In A Name?

59 posts in this topic

A private message asked me about my name, and it got me thinking. How do people chose theirs, especially the punters on here? Is it an alter ego you wish you were, a joke, or just the first thing that came into your mind when you registered?

 

I was also wondering if a girls name at all features in your choice? For example if I were looking I would avoid particularly graphic names, but that's just a personal preference, and may be a woman thing (we do sometimes prefer things a bit more implied I think) 

 

Oh and bonus points for those who get my name, its always fun to get an email with a knowing wink

I was thinking about changing my forum name (because I'm not fifty-three any more!) one evening while getting ready for bed. I picked up my electric toothbrush and noticed that it has 2 settings: 'Max' and 'Gentle'. Et voilà! :)

I once had a client who was Del on AW, I assumed it was the diminutive for Derek. One day he told me his real name and I said I assumed Del was short for Derek. He laughed and said no he needed a user name and the nearest thing to him was his Dell Laptop! 

 

 

Incidentally I started off as Lydia Kitten when I did the phone lines, but once I got into escorting I decided I was more an old moggy than a kitten! 

 

 Lydia came from Lydia Bennett in Pride and Prejudice and was a name I like and was typically English, easily spelled and understood but not overly common so I kept it for escorting.  Minxy came from a friend who called me Minxy and also was a more original descriptor, at the time, there are more Minxys (or should that be minxes?!) around these days and was less overtly sexual than the usual Sexy, Busty,Saucy. Though if I was starting now I'd choose Lydia with a surname which is probably more sophisticated sounding.

Reason for my name is a simple one. I like to piss off spelling and grammer pedants! 

 

I also chose the name as it was/is a Belgium pop group who's music when I signed up was what I was enjoying listening to for a brief spell of time and thought it combines what I wanted in a username at that time!

My Punternet nic is derived from the name of the first horse I ever backed its name being something I used professionally for a while and is partly a contraction of one of my real names. Also my several nephews and nieces call me uncle.

Uncle Pokey

Contrary to many people's ideas Moonraker pre-dates James Bond and is the name for those who are Wiltshire born and bred - similar to Hampshire Hogs and Norfolk Dumplings.

It takes its name from the Wiltshire Moonraker legend - "we'm baint so daft!"

I get asked about my PN moniker, too, and have sometimes worried that the 'beeste' bit is a little aggressive: I am actually more frequently in a state of bewilderment than beastliness.

 

The name derives from the fact that I was listening to the brilliant album 'Teddy Boys Don't Knit' by the late, great Viv Stanshall when I joined:

Mine is very simple it is short for ''i do not get the chance a lot''.

It is now even more applicable than when i chose it.

So unfair when a questions answer is so pellucid..

 

So with that I'll ignore the obvious and go on to try and see if I can' conjure an image on how one could interpret

my working girl name....

 

'Washing Machines'

 

Did it work?

Minxy just sums you up so perfectly tho!

all power to pissing them off, no time for someone who ignores what you say to point out an apostrophe is in the wrong place  :ph34r:

Not sure if it worked Emily, but for me it certainly conjured up an image of this song

Enjoy!

...I know its boring and I wish my sobriquet was a little more esoteric and enigmatic but alas I just thought how would I describe myself as a punter and I thought I am a 'happy punter' as have had so many lovely encounters - so THP seemed right for me! :).

From the Wikipedia entry on P & P: "Lydia shows no regard for the moral code of her society, and no remorse for the disgrace she causes her family". So that's two of you on this thread drawing on Jane Austen - what would she think?  I'd always fondly imagined Groucho Marx was behind your name:

 

 

I agree with the OP on avoiding graphic names. I'd never book someone who called herself Little Cumslut or anything like that.

 

By the way, I've always thought one of the neatest and most economical nicknames was that of a former member of this forum, Nik.

Mine just come from watching traffic cops while signing up and the number was on top of the police car that was on the screen at the time! Bit boring really when others have such well thought out names.

There's also Lydia by Fur Patrol 

 

It seems to be about a woman who has been dumped for a Lydia. The best lines are 

Her arms are warm

Her legs are wide and so's her smile

She'll take you on

 

 

How do you embed a Youtube properly so it appears on the post?

Pretty obvious - new hobby, joined PN nearly a year ago. Was clueless and wanted advice. Probably still need it.

I usually look at metadata to plot patterns and devise programmes (not computer progs).

I had no data to go on to determine how to enjoy myself. Now from forums and encounters i do.

For some reason a rhyming alter ego has emerged, which amuses some of you and irritates others
