I've decided that Iceblossom is too long and now try for about 6-8 characters, most people just call me Ice, but it was perfect for that character and race/class and it was all perfect for me. I know it's hard to understand for non-gamers but I played Ice 2-6 hours a day for 6+ years, it's like having a character in a book. I am not my characters and my characters are not me, but we do have some similarities.

But the curiosity I understand In a similar sort of thing when stuck in traffic (because otherwise I don't see well enough) I like to figure out personalized license plates.

I like the double nn's in your name, I think it personalizes it well. It can be hard to get the names we want the way we want them and the double N plus Ann with an E all help.

PS: I have a theme song too. Of course it's Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. You got a problem, yo I'll solve it!

Edit: It's like having two theme songs in one because Under Pressure by Queen with David Bowie works for me too
I so agree with you. I do the same traveling with license plates. I like the character side of people in games as well. There are things that are similar but most not so much.

It was my first password that was given to me about 25 years ago by the IT manager at my work.

Mine is the name of my horse, Watson! And, now I have the perfect excuse to show off a picture of him.

Oh Watson, your horse is gorgeous!

When DH and I retired in 2001 we moved from the San Diego area to a farm in Northern British Columbia, in a tiny farming community called Dunster. We spent 4 wonderful years there, then moved to Oregon, where I learned to quilt. I cherish those years in Dunster, so I used it as my member name, and also as a business name (dunsterQuilts).

My username is pretty obvious too. I was born and raised in New Zealand. I've been in the USA for almost ten years but I still have a distinctive accent. Even though I've embraced America as my country (dual-citizenship) and I love the USA, my birth country is still a great part of who I am.
