What's the history behind your screen name?



When I joined the original board, I had no intention of posting and didn't give any thought to a screen name. I didn't think I would be using it anyway.

So, as a teenager, I was a big Elton John fan and one of my favourite tunes was called 'Hercules'. I went through a period of naming everything I had 'Hercules' including a cat, a dog a pet spider and all five motorbikes I susequently owned. After that, it seemed to be a natural step to name myself Hercules. Especially with my body.

Re: What's the history behind your screen name?


I love animals, especially kittens and cats. I wanted to have kitty in my screen name and I believe kittykat was already taken, so I just tacked on a 1 after the name and it took, so that's why I am KittyKat1.

I thought it would be too weird to have KittyCat as my user name.

I was punchbuggy on the old board. It's a VW beetle, a Canadian band, and I loved the nickname 'punch'.

I wanted the name when we came here but it was taken, so a friend of mine suggested spacebuggy - something similar. At first I thought it was because of my love for science fiction, but now I think it's because he thinks I'm crazy.

Punchbuggy was the first screen name I ever gave myself. Consequently, I'm quite fond of punchbuggy, punch, p-buggy, as well as spacebuggy.

Well about 27 years ago when I was in the army I shaved my head for a lot of money, and I recieved the nickname badmuts ( is Dutch for bathing cap )
and I never lost the nickname, the hair grew back though.

Nice one Badmuts, I live in Eindhoven, so I knew what the name meant. it sounds good in English too - A bit like 'Bad Mutt', which would make you a bad dog...

Very funny. Something tells me that you are too kind to animals to eat one, well..at least not a domesticated animal!

Re: What's the history behind your screen name?


My favourite Bruce love song is Tougher Than the Rest, so when I joined the original sony site I named myself 24thantherest, as I aspired to be "tougher" 24/7.

My name later evolved to be mrs bill~horton after marrying Kirk, and then Ramona67 was the obvious choice for these boards after Kirk chose Kirk58


I agree, emoticon emoticon

Born to Run is my all time favorite Bruce song, so therefore Wendy is my favorite Bruce love interest. For some reason, wendy15 was taken, so I added the double zero to the front like James Bond.

My real name is Lara. It's not Wendy.
