Post #7729135

For the longest time, I have found myself amused at many of the handles (Names) used here on Dave's Garden. Often I have thought what prompted that handle?? Some are so creative, some are so catchy, some are even pretty or striking. So I wondered if I told you my story, would you share your story with us. Also I love having a face to go with the name. Claire has shared some great pic's of her and her lambs, Catscan shared a pic of her though I never could figure out which one was her. Would you be willing to share a pic and tell us what's in a Name?

When I was about twelve I saw my first wrestling match, I was very impressed. I wanted to see more and a man told me I could see them free if I would come to the arena two hours before start time and set up chairs. It was a lot of work but I wanted to be there. After the match I had to put the chairs away. That was okay also. I wanted to be there. After a short time of doing this once a week I met a wrestler, he was huge, I asked him what his name was and he told me he was Haystack Calhoun. I still remember that he weighed in just a tad over four hundred lbs. He wore bib overalls that were cut off just below the knees. He was always barefoot. I noticed he never hurt anyone he would just put them in a barehug and lay them on the mat and then plop on top of them pinning them to the mat. I loved the gentle giant. I was to young to know it was a show, but I was impressed that he never hurt anyone and he always won. I wanted to be just like him. OK thats my silly story. But strangely enough I still think of him, so when I found the Garden I decided I wanted to honor my hero by using his name. Silly but thats my story, and I have had my mug on here plenty so no need for that. I'd love to hear your story. Haystack.

Ceridwyn (with a huge variety of gaelic spellings, pronounced KARE-id-wen) is the Welsh goddess of transformation, herb knowledge, literacy and shape shifting. I grew up on mythology from around the world but especially celtic, and of the celtic i've always loved welsh the best. I suppose you could say Ceridwyn is my patron? if that makes more sense to you. anyway i've adapted the name to a spelling that is non-traditional out of respect - i'm honoring her by taking this name, not attempting to portray her online. have used either cerridwenn or cerridwenn's cat as my online "handle" for at least 12 years and so far never had anyone go "hey, that's me!" so i figure it's alright.

oh, and i have a photo up on my dg homepage.

Here is a story I wrote on how I get my user name. The 107 is our house address.

How I get my user namel

Now I am a bird watcher. I have fixed up a place to set on our carport. And I have feeders both out in the side yard and hanging around the edge of the carport.

A couple of summers ago I started feeding meal worms to the birds. The first takes where the little Caroline wrens. A tiny, bold and fearless brown bird with a iron will and a huge song. Well one day I was running low of the worms but expecting a new shipment any day, so I was only putting our a small number of the worms. One of the wrens came to the dish and looked--no worms----she looked around and then flow over and landed on the top edge of my laptop. And boldly looked me straight in the eye.

Meekly I said "yes mam" and went and get some more worms for her.

Another time I was working on the laptop and I felt something on my leg, looking down I watched as the wren hopped up my leg. I have also held a small dish with worms and one landed on my finger.

And that is how I get my user name and here I am with the demon child

Miss Jest'r was the name of my first horse. I did not own her at the time when I rode her for the first time out into the desert, we came up on a hill and started going up it and the ground gave way. She had been in a wreck a few months before that with her owner and fell down a hill. She must have remembered that cause she came out of the wash bucking. I flipped off and cut my head, requiring 5 stitches. As soon as I hit the ground she stopped and waited for me to get back on her. Bloody and sore I got back on her and we walked back to the stables. I left the next day for Nashville for business, came back 5 days later, got the stitches out of my head and then entered an agreement to buy her. I loved her from day one... She was previously known as Shady and my son was in the Renaissance thing at the time and he was a court Jester. So I gave her the name Miss Jest'r. She is gone, but never forgotten. Actually she is what lead me to Daves, I was looking for a place to post missing information about her when I ran across daves equine forum. I have made many friends here both in the equine and poultry and gardening forum.

Dear Mr. Haystack,
My name is Billy Bob. I am a cowboy. My Nanny calls me Billy Bob, my momma calls me Eli, my Antie Ginah calls me B Bob and Uncle Ronnie calls me Bob O. At school my teachers call me Billy Bob. I will be good at school. Hey Mr Haystack come to my house cause I dear him,(I asked what Dear meant and he said It means I love him) My real name is Elliott William Robert Smith, that's what my name is...I want Mr Haystack to call me Billy Bob. Love Billy Bob Thats my name...

PS From Nanny, Billy is named after my father Elliott and his other great grandfather William Robert. when he was born I named him Billy Bob and it has stuck.

I like doing this and learning about everyone:
my name IS Fran Smith
Frans530 is the soundex code for Fran Smith (look it up, very interesting)
The Soundex code for a name consists of a letter followed by three numerical digits: the letter is the first letter of the name, and the digits encode the remaining consonants. Similar sounding consonants share the same digit so, for example, the labial consonants B, F, P, and V are each encoded as the number 1. Vowels can affect the coding, but are not coded themselves except as the first letter. However if "h" or "w" separate two consonants that have the same soundex code, the consonant to the right of the vowel is not coded.

The correct value can be found as follows:

1.If "h", "w" separate two consonants with the same soundex code, change consonants to right of the vowel into "h" until they have the same soundex code
2.Replace consonants with digits as follows (but do not change the first letter):
b, f, p, v => 1
c, g, j, k, q, s, x, z => 2
d, t => 3
l => 4
m, n => 5
r => 6
3.Collapse adjacent identical digits into a single digit of that value.
4.Remove all non-digits after the first letter.
5.Return the starting letter and the first three remaining digits. If needed, append zeroes to make it a letter and three digits.
Using this algorithm, both "Robert" and "Rupert" return the same string "R163" while "Rubin" yields "R150". "Ashcraft" yields "A261".

Here is an auto converter : http://resources.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/soundexconverter

When I first tried to sign up for Yahoo.. Like 10 years ago.. I wanted to be JJ is me.. but it was taken, so was JJ anything.. I got frustrated and said "I bet they don't have a ZZ" and I was right.. So my computer name was ZZ is me..
When I was selling on Ebay, a girl named my website ZZsPurteez (jewelry and crafts)
Then when I found DG I had several plants I loved and didn't know how to care for.. (my babiez) So my DG name became ZZsBabiez which ended up being quite appropriate!

I'm sorry, all my pics are on my old computer.. I honestly can't find them on here yet.. my pic is on FB though.. and several on here in old threads..

Greykyttyn came from the darling Miss twitch, my gray cat that came to be as a rescue last summer late. She happen to be sitting on my lap when i was filling this out & setting up a new email. I figured if i didn't want to be found or connect to my old accounts thus letting a former friend cause more problems i'd need to change my email. She was my first kitten to have such a unique personality. Very needy, very trusting... I figured using Twitch would get me laughed at. Thus greykyttyn was born.

This is Twitch my now half grown cat.

I sooooo pictured Haystack that way, and many others too.
Our state must not use the soundex or if it does I don't know how to spell my last name correctly!

My "name" is the name of my first golden retreiver, Tamberlin MacKenzie of King's Highway (yeah, they told me I had to give him a huge name so I did). I was given him as a gift when I was a sophmore at the College of Wooster in Wooster Ohio. He was a cross between a "show" golden and "field trial" golden. He was my constant companion, he went classes with me and would sleep in a big bookbag or under my chair. When school was over, we went to Maine and he learned to swim the hard way (by falling in). After that, water was his greatest love. He was very depressed when I got married and moved into a no dogs appartment. He was in the wedding though. He lived with my Mom until he passed away at the great dog age of 16. He was my best friend (better even than my DH sometimes). Now I have Andrew, my rescued golden. He is originally from Louisiana and came to us as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Andrew would LOVE to meet Andre, I bet!

Good point Cousin Catscan ... and dolphins. Just discovered exclaiming: "Bull shark!" is almost as good as exclaiming: "Balderdash!" Go ahead. Do it out loud.

ps my fav word for today is snausage as in 'I sure snausaged those dahlias into that container this year'. Credit for this luvly word correctly goes to Queeq in FL. Wren do you say snausage alot? I'm wondering if it's a FL word.

edit: Queeq's name is really Queeqqueg. I just call her Queeq cuz Queeq is a great name.

I just found this thread.

I am a displaced Cajun living in Ky so I am Cajuninky. Not too inventive but it rolls nicely off the tongue. Just like spit. LOL Oh, I slay myself.

MissJ, Congrats on the fair results and please extend my congrats to Billy as well. Where I grew up we had big parish fairs that had tons of animals. Not so here. I really miss it. The other county we lived in had a small fair and we entered all of our animals. None of them got judged. Everybody who entered got blue ribbons. No satisfaction in that but it paid well. $10 for each animal. We even entered our pet possum, Jolie' Pas.

Hi All... well My Choice of name was actually my Grandmothers name Eufaula.
It is a Muskogee (Creek) name which I was told meant "Laughing as she Runs" WRONG!! I recently found out that it meant " Dog People"... which interpreted means People who have clans and depend on family as a group to live well. So in other words.. My name means I am aLoving Family person.

My name comes from my car. A Mazda RX-8 the color is titanium. Not as creative as others, but I figured no one would have used that name since there aren't many of these cars on the road.
