Mine screen name is my husbands first initial, my first initial and our last name. I wish I could change it as it is part of our email address.

Having worked at The Ellsworth American since 1978 I guess you'd say I'm a "company man" but I think "American girl" sounds better.

Mine is just Maine with the "ah" added as a play on the Maine accent. Like nummah!

Nummah, LOL! Us kids use to call each other that when we were arguing. I think our dad may have even referred to us all as a "bunch of nummahs" at time or two. Too funny.

When I first got on the internet I needed a screen name. I looked around my desk and there was a kamorra coaster. It's a liquor. So I was kamorra on AOL.
Then I was off AOL and came back later and had to add the 2 so now it's kamorra2. And I just kept the screen name for other things like this.

BTW...great thread Elcarim

hummmm...
This is a fun one.

For me.. peachie comes from lots of things.
    • I love peaches and I use peach product (*so I smell peachie too).
    • I also got nicknamed from it from DH and from my dad being in GA.
    • Being happy most of the time comes into play. Life wasn't always a basket of peaches so, today I can say I'm a peachie person for the hard times long ago. Soft on the outside, but hard ( like the pit) on the inside.

I dunno...mine was a stroke of "hurry up - think of something" combined with DW's genius. Being from RI, I know first-hand how miserable nor'easter storms can be, as I live in, well, the northeast! Adding the "ah" at the end was a natural for a Rhode Islander, as we don't much pronounce r's anyway, and Maine is known for it.

So, like a swirling storm, Nor'Eastah was born!

I'm a fan of classic old movies, and I love Asta the dog. He was a plain old mutt who was able to steal the scene from great actors like Cary Grant and William Powell without even trying.

We always used to answer the question "How are you?" with the reply "peachy keen"

Great name!

Love The Thin Man movies with Myrna Loy, William Powell, and Asta!

Elcarim, your story about your screen name was very special! Thank you for sharing it!
