I read somewhere someone asking someone what their user meant.

Mine is pretty simple Leahrb, is my first name, 2nd initial, and last initial. I know boring... Didn't realize I was going to get this addicted to this site and use it all the time...

So if you have an interesting user name and wouldn't mind explaining...

hmm.. I guess mine is obvious :) You know, you can actually change your username on the in your control panel. When this site first started, mine was 'daamsie', a nickname that seemed to stick when I got to Australia! I have no plans on changing mine though, as it could get a bit confusing for people I guess.

well.. Same with Peter. IMonaghan = Ian Padraic Monaghan. I leave out the P because of childhood trauma though

Having your initials be I P... anything is tough when you are in grade school

Well my real name is Tanya, so of course everyone in Aus calls me "Tazza" as that's shortened my name so much and made for easier pronounciation...

Name of the tiny place in Wales where i was born. I wanted to have the same user name on most places i go (so don't have to remember lots of different ones!) and came up with using this.

It's unusual and doesn't mean anything to virtually anybody, so works just fine. More or less any forums etc where Gelli (Or Moronic Aardvark - long, long story) appear, it's probably me.

Btw - completely irrelevant, but pronunciation is approximately "Gech - lee" (not Jelly)

mine is actually my name excpet i didnt realise that it only held 10 characters so its meant to say 'IngridJones' instead of 'ingridjone'. exciting aye actually apparently my name comes from someone who was the god of fertility... and rode around ona golden bristled bore... (i read that on a key ring somewhere)
