A Non-blogger blogs about nickname

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

I don't blog often because I live a very quiet, uneventful life so I just read everybody else's blogs!

However, I have had quite a few Sparkers ask about my name. When I got my first home computer, back in the last millennium, a friend helped me set it up. He told me to pick a user name I would remember but which would not be easily hacked into. Birdlegs was a nickname my four older brothers stuck me with when I was a child and I will never forget it!

    That is cute. I never really had a nick name. My Mom calls me Gretchie and some of my friends and relatives call me Gretch but mostly Gretchen. My favorite cousin used to call me Scratch, I don't know why.

    I figured something like that.
    I think it's cool because I can totally visualize a bird with long, skinny legs, running!
    One brother called me Sis, the other called me Jack, but that's not where I got my screen name. It's the title of a song I like by Spoon.

    Interesing! My nickname comes from my favorite childhood story read to me almost daily by my mother. It's hard to tell sometimes if a nickname is also a real name. Sometimes it's obvious that it's NOT. It's also often hard to find a person's name so you can say Hi on a more personal level.

    It helps me to have a first name so I can think of that person. Doesn't matter if it's a "real" first name or not. Just harder to say HI, HereToLose than HI Mary! LOL So thanks, Jean, for bringing up the topic of nicknames. - Karen

    Appropriately answered, my friend! Though it is nice to be able to read other blogs, sometimes they give us cause to pause and think! It is funny to me, because Marjijane was my nickname as a child, and not a single person has asked me where my name came from, not one! LOL... so I just thought you were thin legged and used that as a "want the rest of my body to be that way" name.

    Thank you for giving me a good smile and a warm feeling!
