Title: ¿Como te llamas?
Post by: RedLion on 15 Mar 2008, 14:48
I'm not sure if this is a kosher topic, and there might already be one similar to it, but,

I have a bit of pet peeve with having to address people by inane screen names. So despite the fact that everyone on the internet is, in reality, a 50 year old man sitting in a bathtub in Pittsburgh, let's get to know eachother's names, shall we?

Call me Jason if you like. Or if you don't like, for that matter. The only nickname I have is 'Jase.'

I was under the impression that necro-posting was strongly frowned on, and raising a thread from the dead to add my name would earn me a heaping helping of bitching. So I figured this would be the safer route.

That is the most awesome real name ever.

Samma is fine --people who come through my line at work always try to tell me how unique it is and then I have to go and ruin it by telling them that it's just short for Samantha --which no one Professors and people who don't know me better call me (oh, and BK when he's annoyed).

Otherwise, just PQ...or if you insist, PQ4.

I like to go by 'Delicious Dan'. Or 'Delectable Dan'. Or maybe sometimes I like to be called 'Twirly Shirley'. There is no funny story behind that. My existence is a sad thing and I like to make up for it by inventing names. But really, no one has ever called Twirly Shirley, nor do I think anyone ever will.
My purpose is void.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you, and you may call me V.

You might guess my name, as I always sign my posts...  But for those interested in second names (often more off-the-wall than first names) mine is Winfrith, the Celtic name of the British missionary to Germany subsequently known as St Boniface - at least I didn't get called that!

Paul

My name is Marilyn.  Every school I've ever gone to has had at least one librarian named Marilyn.  My middle school had two consecutive ones, I believe.

People think I'm named after the state.

If it makes you feel better, I have a sister named Marian. Imagine how that goes over every time she tries to check out a book.

Ubani gamalakho i-Zed

yeah, another big let down, my nick is written on my avatar :(

Relatively interesting story for those of you who know what Zol is (Zed is short for Zollie!)

Of course my mother wasn't that interesting and gave me the most overused Christian name in the universe - Michael.

Best part: not even a joke, just the sad, sad truth about why my sister has no sense of humor.

At the start of the year, every single one of the four librarians at my college campus was called Chris. Then Chris fired Chris and hired some dude who isn't called Chris so it's a bit disappointing but still, if you make a loud noise in the library you have a 75% of being thrown out by someone called Chris. This amuses me.

Also, my name is May. But I tend to answer to Barmy on here, so let's stick to that one. There's way too many jokes to be made out of my name, sometimes it surprises me.

What bugs me is when people are named after countries.

Come on, people. America? You can't think of a better name than the country you live in? And the fact that there are people who have the name China who aren't slutty wrestlers makes me sick.

Fuck it, I'm just going to name my child (I will never have a child) Kyrgyzstan.

The best name one can give to their child is one that consist of a single letter. One of our teachers once told us of this woman who named her child β. Dunno whether a law was set preventing that shortly afterwards, though.

I know someone who had a friend called Tuesday. She got a lot of jokes along the lines of "it's not your day today, is it, Tuesday?" and so forth. I tend to get "bit early for the time of year, aren't you?" or "Maybe it's Maybelline" etc.

I'd say that it's made me determined to give my children ordinary names, but I've got my heart set on Mathilda and Tabitha (female twins run in our family so girls' names will be more likely to be used). I'll give my sons normal names though, I'm not a complete sadist.

For those of you who know music theory, my friends were sitting around discussing such theory when someone decided that Cadence would be a nice girls name, to which it was rebuttaled that Perfect Authentic would be a better name.


Also, my name is Paul, which apparently etymologically translates to small, and the surname of Schneck, which is German for snail. Why my parents named me small snail is beyond me.

That isn't a letter, though, is it?  It's the beta symbol, right?

I just thought it was a symbol.  I guess I'm wrong, then.

Also, it is commonly used in German as a double-s (Scheisse! = Scheiβe!).

what you're thinking of is an Eszett. it's actually a letter in the German alphabet and is not the same as the beta symbol.
it looks like this: ß
Title: Re: ¿Como te llamas?
Post by: Lines on 29 Apr 2008, 16:47
German letters are fun! Name your kid Y, but in German. "Oopsilong" is much cooler than "why". But ß could be fun, too. Americans would call you, "Funky looking B thing" unless they knew what the letter was.

oh man...if you were from Germany and you named your kid "G" and then he came to America and told everyone his name was "gay"

I was about to say that I knew someone called Gay.

But then I saw the picture at the bottom of the page and am now going to say "DEMON LLAMA" and hide.

My friend knows someone called Jack Toff. Either his parents are stupid or sadistic, but either way I'd love to hear his teachers calling the register.

In my high school they have photo frames with pictures of the individuals from each graduating class. Somewhere in the 70s there was a girl named Gay LaDouche.

Tee hee.

Peter is a (increasingly less common) slang term for a dick. So there you are.

ok I'll jump in on this. I'm Jared.... not like the subway guy or the jewelry store or the lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars. Like me. Pronounced the same as all of them though. I don't know how people get Gerrod or gerred from that spelling but they do all the time.

I used to go by my middle name Vincent... aka vinnie but it doesnt fit me. I am a preppy pale white guy with dirty blond hair and blue eyes that sells insurance. Vinnie just doesnt work...
