    Bit of fun... User Names.

    What does yours mean?

    Guess what other people's user names mean.

    Mine is my initials. Original, eh? :rolleyes:

    Some are obvious, some not so. "Nine" for example, must relate to inches, judging by the attention he gets from the Ladies.

    Why would anyone choose "dickinpalm" though? :D

    Josser is used in Polari, which was once the private language of showmen and travelling folk. The word is originally from Romany, the language of the Gypsies, and literally means an outsider; it was used for a person who wasn?t born to the trade but who joined a circus or travelling fair as an adult.

    The attendtion from the ladies would be a little... <polite cough> ...wasted with me, I'm afraid, but thanks for assuming that's the reason! I call myself Nine because... well... it's my name. :) BTW, variations of polari were also used as a gay subtext language in the 1960s in England when it was still illegal.

    I like your name Nine...and I am going to assume the visual too...even if the missus is lurking or missing!!!:eek:

    CEB...originality is a very respectful and gallant quality. Kinda puts you up there in the category of "Knight in Shining Armour." ;)

    I know there is a thread around here somewhere about this name. I conjure up visions of a very intimate relationship for that chap. Hope he is using a screen protector.:p

    My name is the good and bad of me. I love the Vampire genre and I am a Registered Nurse. I have several user names for posting purposes and can easily slip into another virtual character depedning on my need. I just use the VampiressRN name on this board though so don't go getting paranoid. :D
