Question How did you choose/invent your user name?
Okay, I guess I'll go first.

Several years ago, when I was seriously into Middle Earth fan fiction, I needed a pen name before I could post on a LotR fan fiction website. Sindarin is the common Elven tongue in Middle Earth. My real name is Karl. Gwaithmir is one Sindarin translation of Karl. There are a few other variants, but this one sounded best.

When I signed up on Atheist Nexus and the Amazon forums I took this user name with me. I saw no reason to change it when I arrived at The Thinking Atheist.

Ultimately, I chose Karlmir Stonewain as my pen name, but that's another story. Wink

There are several answers to your question on this ^ thread. Yes

Perhaps we will learn some others.

I honestly don't recall the entire formation of my username. I'd used it on several other message boards over the years as well.

IIRC, it was something along the lines of: sitting in a library on a computer, where the library have a logo background on the PC had a green tree, which I took to look like an oak tree. Then I thought of those stupid like "Beefcake 5000" things you see in the health food shops/on TV, and OakTree500 was born Laugh out load

Lots of thread ideas get regurgitated on here Tongue It's all good in the hood Big Grin

My first name is Jenny, hence the Jenny Hobo I would have just put that down as my user name but I figured that name was probably already taken and I'd have to add numbers to the end which I didn't feel like doing. So I chose to add the bee because there's a pranayama (breathing technique) in yoga called "bee breath" that I always find funny.
