Hello!! fellow expats, non-expats, people who wish they were expats, people who will be expats, people who have nothing better to do in their lives, people who will never be expats etc etc!

Reading through these forums on such an infrequent basis as I do(;)!), it has been impossible not to notice the vast, exotic, innovative, facinating, quixotic, original, interesting and at times incomprehensible array of login names that we all have:

And now, I want to know about YOURS! Why did you choose it, what does it mean, where does it come from, what significance does it hold??....

In order to get us all started, I will come clean for once and admit that mine is about as original as putting something inbetween two slices of bread and calling it a sandwich (although when the Earl of Sandwich first asked his butler to do this a few centuries ago over a game of cards, it was seen as highly original!!):-

It's simply my initials, it's also the closest thing I've ever had to a nick-name: even my parents have called me DPG on occassion!!

What about yours?? Please tell us, we are busting to know!!:)

When i was a young whipper-snapper in Manchester i was known as Braders (my surname is Bradley) to all my muckers ;) BrAders not Braiders, we clear lads ;)

Another mate had really weird skin on his face which defyed gravity, we thought he was an Alien so appropriately named him 'Moooooon!'

Alethea has obviously something to do with Aleuthetics, and it's a cool nickname, for Aleuthetics studies truth (if i may put it that reductive way)

Which explains why Alethea has her signature.

Althea is a shrub, actually a family of plants. Cotton is an althea. So are hibiscus and rose-of-sharon. Just thought you'd want to know these things....

I picked up pengwn when I used to play NTN in bars in the States. NTN is the TV satellite trivia game--have you guys seen it? The login wouldn't take more than 6 letters and the Pittsburg Penguins were MY team. Then I logged in here and forgot my original password and had to make a new one so now it's pengwn9.

The Penguins sold/lost/traded all their best players and couldn't beat the girl scouts now in a game of hop scotch--but I still have the coolest hockey jersey in Moscow. Penguins home jersey signed by the whole team and Jagr twice. Look for it on ebey some day. I'm gonna sell it and get rich.

Let's have em....

I remember Limitchik first appeared when we had this "another terrible russian wives story" discussion and I mentioned "po limitu" and "limitchiki" social-cultural phenomenon in Russia.

His signatures in Russian are so witty that I bet he is he, and he is Russian.

I was just a Russian lady found myself in sometimes pleasant sometimes hostile English environment. Still remember "From Russia with love" - "I will go in this on Piccadilly" - when Tatiana Romanova poses in a neglige on a train. But still my favourite is "Polia Ivanova?!" said by Rodger Moor in "A view to a kill" (but the avatar is the one of Tatiana Romanova)

Back on the old expat list Pelugin ran, we used email addresses. Mine was blue1051. Came from liking blues music. I just kept it when the new forum site came up. Then my wife saw it one day, and had a fit, "You are NOT blue!" So I changed it to am4rw - 'american man for russian WIFE', and asked her if that made her happy. She said it was ok as long as I made it clear I was married and not flirting with any other women.

Bulgakov's Begemot meets Bloom County's Bill the Cat -- a good mix to reflect my often confused Russian-American state of mind. THHHAAPPPTT!

Almost forgt, Ha ha ha in advance for the elvis presley jokes that may come.

The British version of 'Return to Sender' is...? Guess what? 'Return to Sender'. Weird that, don't you think?

My nick at the Marine Academy I graduated from, derived from my surname.

I was nicknamed Filya in the kindergarden, after a puppy character in the kids' programme "Goodnight, kids". Then I guess I grew up and now even my wife calls me Filimon or Filimonov :)

For the bored and interested...
Back in undergrad I had long hair and a beard. Used to look just like the messiah. A fraternity brother would always shout, "Heeeeyyyy Zeus!" both because I looked like Jesus (which sounds a bit like heyzeus to the non-Spanish informed) and because I weighed 120lbs at the time so he would mock me with the title of Zeus. (Which oddly sounds like moose. Hmmmm...) That was the first nickname I had ever had, so I stuck with it.

Ignia.
This is a cross-breed between "Ignis Fatuus" (latin, "Loony Fire" or something like that) and the color of my hair which was fire-red when I've used the name for the first time.

[Limitchik takes Oscar statue for best login with tears in his eyes while making parade-like hand waving gesture]

First, I want to thank god, my agent, my login thinker-upper, my signature writer, avatar chooser, post/thread/speech writers, punctuation checkers, and grammer correcters. You're all the best and I love you all and couldn't have done it without you ! God bless !

Seriously ? I thought Limitchik (LeemEEtchik) adequately and somewhat humorously expressed the concept of a foreigner living in Moscow. Humorously, because it is used to describe temporary cheap manual laborers from "the provinces"-- a tongue in cheek twist, if you will, on the sterotypical Western expat image. It was, in fact, as Sadie points out, a logical follow-up to Intourist.

My favorite login, however, is Thing-Fish. Is it nothing more than a non-sequiter combination of words ? A cultural reference to some Frank Zappa song ? Enquiring minds want to know.

You should indeed thank those chaps - they generally do a spiffing job. Your spelling correction team appear to be skiving off work though - perhaps in a bar with your grammAr correctors??:D:D

Well, I was rather hoping you'd say something like that (and I believe it about as much as if you told me that you were going to leave Moscow for Tibet tomorrow to persue your passion for chanting with monks in temples on the slopes of the mountains)...you making a spelling mistake! - I'm losing faith in the human race quite quickly here mate!!

You should have a comma after 'here' and before 'mate'.

Nope! The mate part wasn't an afterthought, and needs no pause, mate?!

Telling DPG about my login name:) I'm trying to be the 1st to help people and to prevent unjustice whenever it's in my power. The only way for evil to prevail, is for good men to stand by and do nothing.

why do you plagiarize? :D

damn, I'm gonna be banned 2nd soon! I also quoted Braders signature on another thread!

Alethea, don't worry, quoting Braders signature is not what he bans for:)

As for the phrase I "plagiarised": you just don't know the story. We, 'good men', are all buddies and have agreed to freely share it:) The more times it's said, the more people may become pro-justice. Welcome in, by the way, for mentioning it in that thread.

No, thanks!

I want to be the last one who argues with moderators.

I'm too law-abiding for that:p

Alethea, what made you change the subject to "arguing"??
I said: welcome to our "pro-justice group" (where Braders is one of the members, check his signature). By the way, our main goal is to ensure that EVERYBODY is law-abiding :p

Sorry to Zach and Cycleby. I'll stay out of it now.

Just wanted to throw out that my quote is from Unforgiven. Gene Hackman said it in the beginning and it made me laugh a lot, since I am from NE. I am sure Zach and Fa-Q and even Plastique can back up that view of the motherland.

Jesus, My apologies! Please take into account my advanced age as you have in fact told me this before. I have no right to rag on you about this.
