Default What does your Member name mean?

This probably sounds silly but has anyone besides me ever wonder where someone's sign in name comes from? I often looks at each person's avatar and name. I enjoy the craft work and animal pictures the most. When I look at the name listed, I often wonder why someone picked that name, where it came from etc. For example..AnngelAnne, yes, angel is spelled wrong, but I am always saying that being an angel is a goal, so I put my name in Anngel.... Anyone else want to share?

I'm not as clever as some of the members... mine is pretty much self-explanatory

I went through some sewing related words and came up with mine.

As a child we used to sing this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oA-EpVsrGw but sang 'bobbing along'. I thought it reflected my mindset now that I'm no longer working.

Don't say not clever, you figured a way to say who you are without any question.

When I opened my Etsy shop selling some of the items I love to make, I considered myself to be in the sewing business, or “sewbiz”, hence sewbizgirl.

Mine is the name all 6 of my grandchildren have always called me. My oldest grandson dubbed me with it and it stuck.

My nickname is Zo and my married name starts with Z.

In highschool, believe it or not, when I of course still had my maiden name--which does not start with Z-- the cheerleaders on my squad nicknamed me Zozee. (Or Zozie? I never saw anyone write it, so who knows how it was spelled in our minds?) Whenever I sew for charitable fundraisers, my business name is Zo Z's Cozies.

For a username I thought about "zoz" which rhymes with "oz" which is a reference to Kansas, my girlhood home. But I wanted people to read it as two syllables, and I liked the highschool nickname-turned-married-initial connection.

Is that far more than you wanted to know? You're welcome.
