What is the story behind your username?

Maybe it's something random, or something you crucially though about for a whole week, let me know.

    I just love winged creatures.  Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, mythical creatures like Fairies, spiritual beings such as Angels, even super heroes with wings, of which there are a few.  I love super heroes.  As a matter of fact my favorite dinosaurs have always been the winged Pteranodons.  So when it came time to pick out a name I just naturally gravitated toward something that was dreamy enough to sound gay (which I am), referenced wings and had a somewhat action hero sound to it.  Behold, WingedWonder!  LOL!

  • I love it! Your username is amazing. I'm glad I got to know more about you. I love dragonflies too.

    My favorite winged creature is the Red-Tailed Hawk. My favorite mythical winged creature is the dragon. Good choice!

    Ahh yes, the dragon.  I forgot to mention that one.  Excellent remind.  Thanx, Dances-In-River.

    I almost always lose my breath when I see large birds flying in the air. (Even geese - - who people living around me complain a lot about because they're dirty --  but I still find them breathtakingly gorgeous.) If I'm anywhere but in a car driving, I always stop whatever I'm doing and watch large birds of any kind if I see them flying.

    It may be weird but my favorite bird is the crow. Perhaps because I admire them for qualities I "give" to them --  qualities that I don't necessarily own. Crows strike me as incredibly self-assured - - how many times driving does one spy a crow eating some dead animal and the crow looks at you coming toward them, almost defying you to dare get in their way.
    :)
    They're raucous to me. Sure, I can be raucous at times but not most of the time.

    I find them built like a football player for some reason. I don't have that type of build but I'd sort of like to. I've been told numerous times that I have a wrestler's build, instead.

    I like the way crows just seem to strut their stuff!

    And, again, to me, there is such beauty to me with large birds in flight.

    I'll stop my rambling here, you WingedWonder!

    That picture is worthy of being matted, framed and put on the wall. Simply beautiful!
    Thanks for sharing that, WingedWonder!

    You always have an eye that truly appreciates beauty, so it was my pleasure, Welby.

    Dances-In-River. The video game I've been playing heavily for nearly a year now is The Elder Scrolls Online. One of my main characters that I created recently is a male Argonian. For those who aren't familiar with The Elder Scrolls games, an Argonian is a lizard based human. Anyway, I named that character Dances-In-River based on the Argonian naming lore of the game. Here I am!

  • Such a cool Argonian you have. Thank you for sharing.

    My first name was available when I signed up so I took it.  Usually it's not available so I have to put a little more thought into a username.

    Many many moons ago nanoose was the word that the First Nation people of Central Vancouver Island used for the word friendly (guess if something wasn't friendly they shook their head well saying nanoose). Anyway I always try to be friendly on social sites so I think it's a good username for me and I'v used it for about 10 years on all the sites that I have been on. Nanoose is also the place that I live in so that is also part of why I use it as a username. Cheers. Happy Weekend and happy New Year!

  • For me it was just a name that felt right..I used it on dating sites for a while.. and I guess it meant that I believe daydreams and dreams in general can come true.. I am, and hopefully always will be, a hopeless optimist - so again that fits with who and how I am.. I believe in the best in people, most people have hidden depths, (lol I must learn that not everyone is good ) 

    I am a romantic.. I believe in love... ok so I learned that not everyone is permitted that in their life, but I still believe in being in love.. so again daydream believer...

    AND a huge part of who i am, or who i always used to be was tied up in Music.. I recall my first few dating site blogs mentioned that music was as essential to me as air - and I am a huge lyrics nut.. words matter to me and somehow when they are set to music that makes the words all the more powerful... and I guess few failed to notice that my name is also the lyrics of a song... so again it seemed the perfect choice for me :)

    The last part of the name is new.. and no prizes for guessing why that came about.. I was on the phone to a fab American friend last night... I've known her over 20 years.. and neither of us can believe that anything as awful as Trump even stood as a candidate let alone won... And I told her of how my new passion in life is despising Trump...  I truly despise him with every fibre in my body.. I care about America, about people.. and I KNOW with every ounce of my body and mind that Trump will only harm America further... so when i had the chance to express that within my name.. I did :) This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at January 17, 2017 7:23 AM MST
