This is so enlightening! I have to admit being stumped by some of the names too...I tend to read fast, and skim over all the letters without saying it out loud. Sometimes it's rather interesting in my world.
I've had a lot of board handles over the years, from using my dog's names "hardingsmom" (which is still my yahoo email), to the number of dogs "RedAussies3" to HERmom...which stands for my first three dogs, Harding, Elwood and Ripley. (which is still a handle on a few boards).
My newest handle, and the one that will stay is TheRedQueen, as one day I suddenly found myself the mom to four red Aussies (which is why RedAussies3 had to go also). Never had I had three of the same breed (before I had a basset hound a mixed breed or two and one Aussie)...and they were all red. Someone on my Aussie board said, "you should call yourself the Red Queen!". And since I'm the moderator over there...it seemed to work. I can yell "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!" if I so desire.
So that's what I chose for over here, rather than "Score's mom"...because Score really believes himself to be a RED...he doesn't know otherwise. (though the Reds do...since he grips rather than nips).
