What does your forum name/handle mean or stand for?
« on: May 23, 2014, 10:31 PM »
I'll start, but the answer is kinda lame. My forum name is just my initials.

Yes, my parents had a sense of humor.

My son's and my middle name is Elvin, after my Grandfather. It means "Companion, or friend of the Elves" in some old Celtic language I think.

I have owned the domain ELFWEB.COM and .NET for more than 20 years (though currently without a site), and also own a number of variations on the name including SITTINGELF.COM/ORG/NET...also currently without a site.  There are others as well, and I have future plans for them.

SittingElf was based on a very old graphic shown below that I love and wish I could use it for my logo and trademark. I don't know the origin, and whether or not it is already trademarked, so I can't justify it's use as my logo, but I want to have a graphic artist create something similar for  trademark, copyrights, and logo use.

Ha, thanks for the poke!  [big grin]

However not likely for two reasons - I doubt it ever will be pristine, not in my nature, just functional, and I like the forum name.

Also Tidy Shop is too close to Tiny Shop, now that would be confusing!

Just my standard nickname. Been called Reiska since daycare due to none of the poor sods in Finland could pronounce Raymond correctly  [tongue]

Has something to do with the letters 'y' and 'd' not really been used in the Finnish language.

Its actually really odd for me to work nowadays in an international company with English as the official company language and have people call me my real name... missed a few questions in meetings due to not reacting to my real name at all...
The sky's the limit in my workshop, literally. [big grin]

With the last name of Gillis and growing up in the era of The Dobie Gillis Show starring Dwayne Hickman. When I did railroad construction working my way through college, the other guys decided I would be Dobie.

Mine is my initials/last name.  I also have a handle for most other places that is 'bbryanblr' as an homage to my name and my uncle's professional wrestling name. 

nice thread... I like reading about this stuff.
