    Use to write stories when I was younger. Lanokia was the lead character of a few of them.

    He even comes with a surname and backstory... I won't be sharing that part.

    It was taken from a bathroom furniture company LOL. The lettering was in goldcalligraphy and I thought to myself that'll do..it has connotations with a pristine and calm oasis.

    It should have been a Calvin Klein fragrance.

    The polly bit is the name of a dog that we had in the family who I cherished.

    Does your cat drink Guinness?
    You drink Guiness?
    You own a cat?

    None out of the 3 options?

    RE: The pressing @guinnesspuss question

    My guess is the cat looks like a pint of guiness, black body -white head?

    Where do I get my prize?

    I love detective fiction, hence Agatha from Agatha Christie; I have all her books and Morse from Inspector Morse.

    50sman Lead commenter

    I was in my 50s at the tine and was born in 1959

    Got to decide as I am hitting 60 soon whether to change it to 60sman to reference age or leave it as it is to reference decade of birth!

    Mine was a word I kept hearing in different industries and with different technologies. And the solution was always the same:
    'Oh you will need to install that..':cool:

    Could be worse, could be, "have you tried turning it off and on again" .:D

    Alceanne1 Senior commenter

    I chose Alceanne for Runescape, when I gave my then young teenagers permission to play on it, only if they accepted I would be around, too. They expended a lot of effort in creeping up behind me and robbing me!

    I wanted a slightly medieval sounding name, looked out of the window, saw my hollyhocks and thought, yes, favourite flower: Alcea. Then thought that was a bit dry sounding so thought about favourite names - Anne - and combined the two together.

    Neither name relates to my own name or any close family names, although I would have loved to use Anne for one of my daughters. But it occurs a generation up in my in laws family, so was already used.

    This is another one of those threads that one day might help someone gain access to your bank account.

    Only the bank accounts of those trusting people who don’t use randomly generated passwords and ensure they change them regularly.

    I had to create a new profile for a Christmas present thread a few years ago. I had thing for snowflakes at the time for romantic reasons. Then I started being stalked here online by an ex and I started using this name full time and let the old one "die".
