    I was Public Health Nurse in my working life. I worked with newborns in low income areas. I met a Mexican mother who named her baby Iraxy. When I asked her where she got it from she told me that it was Mayan for Princess of the Springtime. Being a sunny spring time person (May baby), and already having been named a "Princesa" by my loving Hispanic father, it was a perfect nom de plume for me. I asked her if she minded my stealing it and she said no. So, it has been my on line name for over 20 years.

    What a fun thread.

    My name comes from my vanity plate for my car. I had just gotten a new Mustang GT and wanted Ronnie, but that was taken. So it took me several tries to come up with some combination of my name that was available - thus RonieM.

    My user name is also boring. J is the first inital of my first name. The Beamer is from my girlfriend's Dad who made up this play on words of my maiden name. Some of my longtime friends still call me Beamer.

    I come from a long line of princesses, as in the uber-sensitive one in The Princess and the Pea, and I decided to celebrate that trait instead of bemoaning my fate. The Queen Mother (my mother, another princess) named me Susan.

    Mine is Sniktasemaj which is my husband's name spelled in reverse. I can't figure out how to edit user name and put a better one in.

    Mine came from the fact that my daughter is autistic. I figured that some cruel kids might call her weird or a freak, so I came up with a screen name that would let her know that Mom wasn't afraid of being a freak. If I'm not afraid of it, maybe she won't be either. Besides.....the only option to being a freak is being... *shudder* ...NORMAL! *gasp*

    After 2 hip and 1 knee replacement surgeries in a relative short time,my DH started calling me Miss Daisy since he had to drive me quite a lot. I added the Do as the first two letters of my first name. He thought he was funny but it is now my turn to drive him for awhile.

    I looked up that song up on my Itunes. I listened to the preview portion, I did like the chorus though....

    Mine is easy, I live in the South so all women are addressed as Miss and M is the first letter in my first name. So nothing clever here.

    My sister and I were brainstorming names for my website, she asked me what I thought of when I thought of quilts. Well, they make my think of cottages, and being wrapped up all cozy. When I started to set stuff up, I typed cosy instead of cozy. Didn't look right, but couldn't figure it out. So I do long arm quilting in my Cosy Quilt Cottage, and am known, on line at least, as cosy.

    My user name is pretty obvious: I really am slow to sew -- slow to start, slow to work and slow to finish. However, I love having a quilt finished. :-)
