Mine name is a nickname I’ve had probably for about 10 years…since high school.  The Lil is because I’m a shorty at 5 feet!  And the Lindy is just a nickname I have that stems from my real name.

Mine is a screen name I created in middle school and use for everything: e-mail address, instant messenger, the blog I’ve had for six years, various message boards.

Chai, as most everyone knows now, is a kind of tea, but I drank tons of it even when I was younger, before it was all trendy.  Ankh is the Egyptian symbol of life and prosperity; I’ve always been a fan of it, and it has some different, more personal symbolism to me. I have a tattoo of it.  9 is one of my favorite numbers, but I didn’t like the way the name sounded with one 9, so 99 flowed better.

caitlanc is just my first name and maiden initial.  The other one I use (and wish I could switch this one out to) is CaitStClair which is half of my first name and my future middle name.  Oh well. 

My avatar is just a picture of me on a horsepacking trip in Chile.  Maybe one of these days I’ll swap it out for a picture of my dad’s farm which is where my Fiance and I will be getting married. 

P.S.  Great post!

My name actually means two different things:  Since I’m kind of a biker chick and ride an "iron horse", I am an Iron Maiden.  My fiance is a rocker guy whose favorite band is Iron Maiden, so its a tribute to him too.  And my avatar is a pic of my baby – my motorcycle!  (my photog and I can’t wait for wedding dress pics on the bike!)

Love this thread!

Mine’s boring! Liz is my name, and Smith will be my married name. I’m rather fond of the fact that we’ll be Mr. and Mrs. Smith, even tho he hates having such a common name (there were literally 4 Chris Smith’s in the dorms in college, and it wasn’t a big dorm building at all). My avatar is a pic of daisies that’s been a big part of my inspiration for the whole wedding!

‘honey’ is my favorite word (my friends and i would say it all the time in college) and ‘my heart’ is inspired by a pizza place in norcal called ‘pizza my heart’. so my name is a play on that ๐Ÿ™‚ i got the avatar from a south park website where you could turn yourself into a character.

it’s really cool learning about everyone’s names ๐Ÿ™‚

the future Mrs. Smith – i’m pretty much on the same page as you. =P

I’m not married yet and Dang is my last name. I made a coloring book for the kids at my reception with simpsonized versions of us on the cover so i used it here for my avatar. =)

Piaffette is a mix of words…  I am a dressage rider (horseback riding) and the piaffe is an advanced movement performed in the Grand Prix tests.  In layman’s terms, it looks as though the horse is trotting or prancing in place – a very powerful movement to be able to ride, and I’m very proud to say that I can!  I feminized the word years ago and just keep re-using the name because I like it.  ๐Ÿ™‚

 The avatar is of myself and my current horse, Paeton, before a horse show.  Not very wedding-y; I’ll have to figure out a way to get something more bridal!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Karii is a nickname that some of my friends call me (kinda like Carrie but I like this spelling more).

My avatar is a bit of a longer story. When my fiance proposed, he planned a huge party…my family flew in from all across the country as a surprise. They were all waiting upstairs in the living room and watching out the window why he proposed to me. This shot was about 25 seconds after he proposed and I said yes. My dad snuck a picture in and forgot to take off the flash… hence the kind of spotlight effect in the picture ๐Ÿ™‚ It turned out to be an amazing picture!

I love the game of Clue, and only ever win when I play with Miss Scarlet! Plus, I just moved to the south, so all in all Miss Scarlet seemed a good fit!

I created my user name a long time ago, and I had to actually go back to my emails to figure it out when I started to sign in again.  My user name is my actual name.  I can’t tell you why I chose it, other than it’s my name and almost impossible to ever get that user name anywhere else.  My picture was taken at Disney World in front of the new Pixar ride, and it shows the silly side of me.

My name is actually my old AOL screenname from high school. I guess through the years, I just never changed my sn and it’s been my "online" identity ever since.

It’s actually "lil" for little, "neko" means cat in japanese and "69" is for…well….I had a dirty mind in high school

My avatar is actually a picture Darling Husband found because I love bunnies and became obsessed with weddingbee, so TA DA! BunnyBee was born!

Jenny is my name and a spinning jenny is a type of spinning wheel. It just tickled my fancy, really. ^_^ But I almost wish I’d followed the Miss — pattern and gone Miss Hot Wings.

My avatar is my fiance and me at a FortyTwenty concert in Lincoln, one of our fave bands.
