What is your username?
Write a little paragraph about your name, why you chose it, what it means to you, etc.
I'm Gamiila because that is my name. Not the one on my birth certificate, but one I was given later; first as a nickname, and then as a substitute for my name that was difficult to pronounce and had no meaning to the people whose hospitality I enjoyed.
I have many names and nicknames. Some mean a lot to me, others...not so much. But I identify most strongly with a) my real name, b) one other of my nicknames, and c) Gamiila. All three of these names are or have been integral to me and my self-image. However, Gamiila made it into my internet handle and lj user name simply because it was my most current at the time I became a forum frequenter.
What would you change your name to, if you were changing it?
I can't imagine that I ever would, but say that if for some strange reason I'd be forced to, I'd probably call myself by that other of my nicknames to mean something to me personally, and become mata_krandjang.
Because I stink at thinking up user names.
What is your favorite username?
Because the first time I came across it, I went "Of course!" and nodded sagely. It's absurd, poetic, comprehensive, and comprehensible.
Now, tag five other unfortunates whose usernames you would like to hear about:
river_soul, dalmeny, freakspawn, frelling_tralk and halliggye (or anyone who wants to have a go, really).
Oh btw, anonypooh (another user name I like, but one I know the story behind already): I got the cd in today's post. Thanks!
