Gacked from treacle_a, the Username Meme:

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.

Why that?
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!

Oh dear. though I never claimed to be original in my thinking, esp. when it comes to thinking up names...

Oh well, guess I'll have to make it [Bad username: ollieollieollie_oxenfree], then.

My username choice was actually boring! However it was really interesting to read all about your different names :)

I got mine, just before I got an lj, I was trying to persuade my housemate (DM fan) Rachel to start an lj at the same time as me, and I told her she should call herself freakspawn. I told her she was a freak...obviously had been spawned.

Anyway she didn't wanna join lj, so I kept the name for myself :D

Aha. Well, it suits you, even if you're not really a freak except in the best possible sense! ;-)

Shame about the boat trip...but I'm sure we can find something else to do. Like watch 10 seasons of Xena, for example. ;-)
