Forum Contest: What is in a Name ?

    I didn't pick my nickname - it was picked FOR me.

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I joined the Air Force.

    In Basic Training, everyone is given nicknames during the first few days; A few I remember are "Strawberry", because he had LONG strawberry colored hair.. Before they shaved every single bit of it off. :open_mouth:

    Hightower, of course, because he was about 6'7".

    Pepper, because he had freckles. Like, SEVERE freckles.

    Jester, cuz he was always goofing off and getting in trouble for it.

    Bull, cuz.. uhh.. nevermind about that one.

    And then me.. Being from the South, I had an accent. A pretty bad one, according to them (hey, I sounded normal to ME!), and I had to repeat myself a lot because no one could understand what I was saying. I think I had said a total of about 3 words the first day when someone said "Hey, you Southern?" (meaning, "From the South").

    It stuck. :)

    Been using it 35+ years now, when I first created a Q-Link account back in the 80's, before even AOL was "a thing". :)

    My name came from shame.... reading in my younger days those sweet romance bouqet novels.... In one of these novels I bounced on the name Rhiannan, I liked it! Wish I was named that way by my parents... But no.
    So when internet came in my life I needed for some games, fora a nickname. So I typed Rhiannan.. allready taken... Rhiannan76.. Already taken... pfff and so on. I started to switch and leave some out of the name and came to Rheanan. I noticed, that this name was not commone on the internet. So that's my history of my name. ;-)

    My name is a tribute to a man who helped make me who I am but whom I didn't fully appreciate until too late.
    My dad walked out when I was 4 and we moved to be closer to my mother's brother, my uncle John. He was a farmer and I spent my later teenage summers helping with the harvest. Like all small farmers, he could turn his hand to almost anything and so I came to believe I could do most things too. It was not till I was in my 30's with a family of my own that I realised how much I had learned and by then he had died of a stoke.
    His address was Yew Tree Farm, his wife, my aunty Twink, a great cook, his sons, Rod, Geoff and Ian (Geoff being the keen gardener). 
    This was a farming game and I thought it an apt tribute to name everything after him.  :¬))

  • My name is widiscgolfer.  It's very simple; two parts.  "wi" is for Wisconsin, where i was born and raised.  "discgolfer" is because when i was younger, i played the game disc golf!  It's basically like the regular game of golf, except you use a frisbee!  The holes are baskets with chains on them, just like in regular golf, they have holes.  It's a nice fun casual sport.  I've been using widiscgolfer as my username for years!

    I bet you'll NEVER guess how I got MY name?? I'll help you solve the mystery.  My name is Laylani and I love horses.  Now that I've screwed you up as you look at my name and go...

    I had a boyfriend back in the day and he made me a birthday card that was a huge uppercase B with nipples on the curves of the B.  He called me big Beck because of the size of certain body parts.  So when I started playing big farm I thought of that and thought Big Beck on Big Farm was a good name.

    Rules, rules, rules! - There was one for everything when I was growing up & I was convinced they were all just created to stop me having any fun, so I run with scissors, play with matches, rock on chairs, swim after eating, put my elbows on the table, do not unplug things before taking the back off, sit on cold steps, go out without a coat on, stand under trees during storms, go the wrong way on escalators etc etc etc - But, it turns out there is a good reason for that one about switching off the power before messing with lights or wall sockets! lol Lachen Smileys Smileys en emoticons

    Some rules are made for a reason!

    The Story of How I Got My Name (AKA Bedtime Reading for Insomniacs)

    I was a deft hand at picking pockets. So much so that I was a much sought-after street urchin by low-level cons and grifters on the meanest, darkest streets of London. I soon became known as the Artful Dodger. The “Dodger”was dropped as I proved to be rubbish at dodgeball during the few hours a week we hardworking young thieves were allowed to play. So I became known simply as Artful. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

    No, wait. The true story of my name: I was extremely creative, even as a very young child. When my father asked me, at age two, to draw a ball, I drew a baseball complete with seams and stitching. By age 6, I was commissioned by Gigorio Vasari to paint his wife’s portrait. He wasn’t too thrilled with the smile, but he reluctantly bought the portrait of his beloved Mona Lisa anyway. Disheartened, I turned to sculpting, and my statue of David still resides in the city of Florence. (I did get into trouble with my Mom because I didn’t give David any pants.) Music also interested me, and there wasn’t an instrument I hadn’t learned to master by age 14. I especially loved the piano and my composition, “Moonlight Sonata” remains a favorite to this day. “You are indeed Artful!” people near and far would exclaim. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

    No, wait. My real name is Art Fullerton …. er … Arthura Fullman … er … Arturia Fulomini. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    No, wait, the true answer is this: Thou Art Full of it!

    The end

  • Wons (AU1)Wons (AU1) AU1 Posts: 223
    Hi Everyone :)

    My name is what my Partner decided to use for me just after we first got together. I did ask him why once and he told me it was for 2 reasons.
    Because he felt that he was very lucky when we got together and felt like he had 'Won' big for the first time in his life.
    And also because it's kind of an abbreviation of my real name (Ronnie).

    I became good friends with a lady a while ago & she started calling me Wons because my partner always called me by that name. It sounded so weird to me and I ended up asking her to just call me Ronnie. (I think she was ok with that, we're still friends so... lol)
  • first time when i sign in to this game.i signed in with the name tasnim.after some day.i again entered to the game.and i need to log in.but on that time i was too little that didn't know the differences between login and sign in.so I again sign in with the name tasnim.so it was showing me that there is someone who has the same name in the game.
    i was very surprised,how can it be possible!!!  i  always thought that my name is a very unique name.. and no one of this world has this name,as i was little

    so i signed in with the name bushra. and i was very happy to see that no one was here with this name..but i had to start the game from the beginning .so i didnt play the game for a few days..and again the same thing happend. again instead of log in i signed in.so when i entered  my name bushra.the same thing happend i cant enter this name because another player was there with this name.
    i was very angry,why always it happens to me?????
    then i entered my whole name "tasnim bushra" and i was damn sure about it that no one in this world have this whole name.
    after some time. i understood the differences between log in and sign in. so after that, i didn't need to change my name.and played regularly.and now im in 153 level.i had spend a nice time with big farm. :):):):););)

  • Sallie13 (US1)Sallie13 (US1) US1 Posts: 29
    My game name is Sallie13.  Sallie was our ittybitty evil kitty. :smile: Offically my son's cat, but when she was upset or not feeling well, she came to Mom (me). Well, we lost her in 2013. She died of a heart complication when she was just 8 years old.  Shortly after she passed, I was browsing Wild Tangent looking for a game to play and found Big Farm. Using her name was a nice way of remembering her and keeping her in my heart.

    My nick rose from a longing for summer. Back to the wonderful, slowpaced, cheerful summer autum had whisked away and I found myself back at the grinding stone and chills again. With this nick I feel I carry that warming, delightful summer feeling with me inside :smile:

  • Well my name  came from a friend.  We went to my apartment for something and he came in and said WOW!!!  Your my little Hulagurl. My whole apartment was decorated in palm trees!!   He has since passed away so I will never change it as a tribute to our friendship.  He was my BEST friend.  

    The 80 is the year I was born.

    Happy Farming!

    I like my name's meaning!

    If you have a little bit of biology knowledge...

    Ex ( male aspect ) / xy ( female brain )

    E version of x chromosome, and x version y ... makes both me :)

    I believe in a much deeper code for who we are :)

    When most people says they are a male or a female.. in my case i'm just an Exxy :hushed:

  • aaabbb1 (INT1)aaabbb1 (INT1) INT1 Posts: 1,049
    I wish I could tell a realy nice and romantic story about my name but unfortunatelly I can not.
    And you probably do not expect anything nice and romantic behind aaabbb1 do you?

    The story goes like this: I had some time to waist (does not happen very offen, unfortunately) and I was searching trought those game sites with a lot of on line games for some fun. Found Big farm and went: o goody, goody, another farm game, lets give it a try. I still thought it was just another on-line game and have no idea it was a server - runing game. So when it asked for my name, I thought that it was only needed to write at the end something in a lines "congratulation [enter name please], you won 8698729 points" and that they needed email to send me a bunch of comercials. So I entered something to get it over with. A aaabbb came into mind first, but gues what - it was allready taken. So I had to satisfy myself with aaabbb1. Good I did not enter "hjurehgqiubgpiqebqi".

    I love dogs. Since dogs are domesticated wolves, I love wolves too...
    But, I have noticed that people tell me I behave much like a cat. That is indeed weird. And after a moment of dyslexic typing to choose a username, wierdwolf got stuck. 

    woof, howl howl, meow meow meow...
