Well I have noticed some neat screen names here and always wondered where did the inspiration come from....And the meaning of name too....

Please share everyone.

I will start with mine (Martica)
It is the child name for Martha, my family calls me Martica since I was a baby. To distinguish my mom who has the same name (Martha)from me. So I decided to use it as my screen name here and all over....I added Designs after Martica to my Ebay and Etsy account to make it sound more business like.....After all I sell my creations/designs....

DH assigned it for me along time ago when I was more afraid of technology ... he based it on my job before I retired sort of ... flight O B L stands for flight on board leader, because I was a flight attendant. Never bothered to change it to anything else.

My 1st granddaughters name is Chandler.

I got mine because I am left handed and I crafty. I have people in my family call me crafty so I added lefty on there because of me bing left handed we tend to use the creative side of our brains which is what brings me to scrapbooking.:)

I've always loved my pet rats - they're such adorable little curious critters! My screen names on various sites all reference them - papermouse, knitrat, paverat...

I'm also the Chinese year of the rat...and, lesser-known fact: my one and only tattoo is the silhouette of a mouse...

first name charlene, last name starts with a K. Hence charK....and I'm also a tad bit sarcastic and opinionated.

It is the first 3 letters of my kids names put together.
Lenna, Ethan, Renia = Lenethren

I use to be known online as Leneth for a couple years before I had my youngest and added her name in.

I enjoy taking pictures of many things and scrapbooking is all about telling your own life story, so I came up with life through a lens. It's a little long but I like it.

My ds' children have two grandmas named Mary so to distinguish us my dgd started calling me Grandma Mary from the Snow (and sometimes grandma Mary with the tangles for my messy hair - glad that didn't stick).
A couple of years ago I got tired of writing the whole title out on tags on their Christmas presents so I abbreviated it. I knew they liked it when dgd made me a beaded name bracelet with GMFTS.

I used to live in Chile and my nickname all through high school was Chicken because of my chicken legs!

I use DNA as my screen name for three reasons...first, I decided to become a scientist based on the movie "Jurassic Park" and the idea of using DNA to clone dinosaurs. Second, genetics is my favorite area of scientific study. Finally, ironically enough, my initials backwards spell out "DNA." The 301 bit is just my birthdate LOL!

When dating my hubby 34 years ago, one of his good friends couldn't remember my name so he called me "sweetthing" all the time. I us it a lot but sweetthing with all the dbl letters is annoying so I shortened it.

Pretty simple on my screen name. DH and I enjoy going to car shows together and I scrapbook. Hence, hotroding scrapbooker was born.

My screen name was created but my first and middle initials, which are TJ and I am very crafty, with all my different crafts I do, and the Witch part is also because I am a solitary Witch. So I became TJCraftyWitch. It has stuck for years.

We have squirrels in our garden at home which we love. DH used to try and tame them, and build them obstacle courses. We also had one slightly dippy one which used to sit on the bedroom window sill and tap for food - tremendously endearing.

"Squirrel" was taken, so I went with our native RedSquirrel, although ours are greys.

Kelsey is my last name. Melissa is my first. I've used "kelseymel" for years at lots of places.

I wish now that I would've picked something different because people inevitably call me Kelsey or Mel.

I go by neither. I'm Melissa or Lissa.



Interesting thread, thanks for starting it!
