Just curious how many members actually like their screen names & how many folks typed in some hasty screen name during registration [size=xx-small]<thinkin': "yea head-fi
rolleyes.gif
whatever...like I'm ever coming back here again anyway..."
>[/size] ... but now, 100's (or 1000's) of posts later, are wishing they'd chosen something different.

As for me, pawlowski6132 was taken so I had to settle for Graz.

Peace,

Graz

No regrets really, only annoyance is that my handle apparently sounds feminine, leading people to believe I'm a female. For the record, I'm not.

Yeah I used my first gf's name in all my passwords when we were dating, now I still use it because it's too hard to remember different ones for different things. Sucks.

I like mine, but I might have used CaymanSanta instead.

Your screen name has always been one of my favorites...definitely memorable.

Well my username is the same that I have used pretty much everywhere else (just to make it easy for me to remember) and when I first picked it it's just because it's my name (Matthew Memmory = m_memmory)

There are times when I wish that I'd put some thought into it and picked a cool sounding name but I don't mind it that much.

anyway, no regrets. i use it every chance i get; plus sometimes adding something before it if the name is taken (ie: other SN is yamagatacamille). i like it. i love the name.

a far cry from high school when i used 'dude' way too much (eg; 'sk8rdude' or the horrific 'azndude'

Like my name... I use it on several other forums. I guess Eddie van Halen has lost all popularity with his recent antics, and Seinfeld isn't too popular any more.

My screen name is my avatar, my e-mail, and pretty much anything else linked to the internet and then some. I have no regrets. I've had this name for years.

I had this internet alias for over 7 years now, and I'm quite happy with it. It actually comes from something else. A character that also appeared in Castlevania.
