How Did You Choose Your User Name?

My user name, Shashi, is a nickname that I grew up with. I started off being "Sissy", since I was the only girl in my family (I have one brother.) Well, when I was a teenager, my parents started keeping foster children. One of them was an 18-month-old baby named Stoney. Stoney couldn't say "Sissy", it always came out "Shashi", so the rest of the family soon started calling me "Shashi" too.

I helped my mom take care of little Stoney, and we grew to love him. He was with us for about a year, and became part of our family. We even inquired into adopting him. However, his caseworker (who was an alcoholic) got angry at my mom one day because we had to travel to Tennessee from Florida when my grandfather had a stroke, and Mom had asked about getting someone to look after the foster kids while we were gone. That old witch took Stoney away from us permanently. We never saw the little guy again.

I recently discovered that Shashi also means "moonlight" in Hindi. I have a tag on the front of my car with a scene of the mountains and moonlight and the name "Shashi" on it. And I use this name for every username I have on the computer. Everytime I see or hear the name Shashi, I remember my precious little brother (who would be almost 30 years old now!)

My sister gave the the nickname "Punkin Head" because my head was big and round as a baby. It still is. "Punkin Head" was shortened to Punky.

When I moved, at age 12, no one called me that anymore. I missed my first home and being "Punky". On this site, I am Punky again.

I noticed that there is a "Punkie" on this site who hasn't posted recently. Where are you, my sister?

Irish and lovin' it!!

What a great idea for a thread!

I have been "Irishmeadow" since the world of email and the internet opened up to me......

My real name is Heather (Scottish descent) but I married a Proud Irishman and have discovered how much fun it is to be "Irish" (St. Patrick's day, leprechauns, shamrocks, etc!). I decided to give my username a twist as Heather is a flower (weed, really) that grows in a Scottish meadow but I'm now Irish - hence, Irishmeadow!

It also reminds me of a peaceful setting, like a young maiden running thru a meadow full of heather! hahaha...

Heather

Hi Poo Bear!

My surgery was on June 15, 2004. I'm feeling good and happy that the problems are gone.

Thanks for asking! - Punky
