What's in a name?

50 posts in this topic

 

Is a name important? Why did some of you pick your Worthy names? Has there ever been any confusion as to what sort of a person you really are?

 

I think names are important in the sense that it allows us to separate ourselves from one another. I don't believe they identify us as who we are, spiritually. My name for example, "man". There are negative connotations associated with that word, especially on christian forums. I didn't give that any thought when I chose that name. When I first registered with this site, I had a name in mind but it was already taken. So after multiple rejections I simply typed in "man" and it was accepted. 

 

 

Well, at least nobody can accuse 'man' of being an effeminate name. Good job you didn't type in the word 'woman'. :laughing:

My screen name now has no rhyme or reason to it actually, well, nothing of "deep thought" went into it or anything. Except for the fact I wanted to ditch an older screen name I had for several years (which I tired of) but I wanted keep the "fire" part of it, so I chose this one. My prior screen name was "Fireinfolding" which I chose out of Ezek 1:4

Ezek 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a ((fire infolding)) itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

I loved the way that is worded, so I pulled those two words from that verse and stuck em' together, and so even my first screen name and even that didn't have any more thought then that.

So on a few boards I have the same name and others a different ones, but I will often play off of "the fire" part in some way. And yet why I do that, "I haven't a real clue" perhaps just to help jog my memory as to what my name might be maybe? lol

Some folks take their screen names really seriously, like if you shorten it, because its too long to type out they really associate themselves with it on a strange personal level. For example, just say their name is "Knowitall" and you address them as "Knowit" (for short) they treat it as equally as they might if it was their real name, like Robert and you just called them "Rob". By which only their most significant other has the royal permission to call them).

In that way I mean.

Fez is a short version of the Zulu name for scorpion, (Fezela) which my Zulu compatriots gave to me during the time I was conducting anti poaching operations. It has stuck and many of the staff I worked with still call me Fezela.

 

Some confuse it with the TV character or the Fez hat which originated in Turkey. 

 

Also it's short and easy to type......

My name is just because I enjoy a lot of coffee and am always using a stir-stick. Some people confuse my name as someone who "stirs the pot" or someone who likes to get a rise out of people, although that is probably true..the name originated from my love for the java.
