What is the meaning of your username and why did you pick it?


#77

foxylady, just a catchy name, frustratedwriter, which I am one, writerscramp, yeah cramps in writing, angelfire7, don’t even know why, Scorpio 1, well date of birth, so I pick & choose the ones I want for different places.


#78

for a “frustrated writer” you really are too sweet…can’t judge the person by the username! :joy::joy:


#79

thank you, and today yeah frustrated

Basically the Viki site picked it for me - 'looks like they borrowed chunks of my name - and basically shoved it at me with a number tacked to the end of it. I don’t like it and want to change it, but I haven’t found a way to do it. Actually I don’t think it’s even possible.

So I guess I’m stuck with a nick I never wanted and still don’t, but I suppose in the long run it doesn’t matter much 'cause it’s anonymous anyway. But still - 'be nice to have the option of editing it.


#81

doesn’t this work for you? or does it change only your main Viki name and not the Discussions one?


#82

Now this is a jazzy topic, genius!

I take it you live in a place that’s always hot :sunny::sun_with_face::sunny:


#84

I too like this topic. (✿^‿^)

The influence of places for choosing a user name. Come to think of it, places are often named for people.


#85

Other things to note is it will change any capital letters to lower case and won’t accept spaces but will accept _

Looks like she had her jaws done, or she’d shed her youthful fat (baby fat). When I first watched her, alongside Joo Sang-Wook, in Kimcheed Radish she had such a cute rounded face.

Time to change to 2021 \(◉‿◉)/ we’re three months in!!

Hmm, maybe I just haven’t nosed around the settings pages enough - if so it’s my fault and face is duly palmed. :crazy_face:

Thanks for the tip, I will give it a try…

Ah, mischief managed! And yeah, my fault.

So a tip for others having this same problem: The profile update functions will not work with some browsers. I generally use either Epic or Superbird, which are stripped-down and de-Orwoogled versions of Chrome. I tried it with Iron - also de-Goggled but with more functions retained - and it worked fine.

So owe everybody at Viki a beer, for the false alarm. :beers:

Wow, you came back to this old thread and read it all?
Well my hometowns name is made from two words Kaiser which means Emperor and is a reference to Emperor Frederick I. (Barbarossa) and the 2nd is Lautern which refers to the stream Lauter running through our city, but back in the days when companies polluted the water, the city decided to hide the water under streets, so you don’t get to see it in town, and back in the days you didn’t get to smell it anymore, well decisions made in the mid 19th century.

:smile::smile: yes I did, and glad I am to find it too, so interesting! :smiley:


#91

Did you write the reason for your username?


#92

Not yet, I’m actually still reading the thread and putting in my two pence :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: so to speak. I will tho’! :smile::smile:

Check below, I included mines. :smile: I had to hail you up, seen as you may not have known . . .


#93

Like others, I think there’s nothing fancy to my choice of user name. It’s my middle name, and I thought, since no one calls me by it, I’ll let it have it’s day online :smile: of course, it’s such a common name, I had to select numbers to go with it for it to be mines. I chose it some years back, in 2009 probably, when I first got my #twitter account. I added my initials to make it more mine. Since, I’ve dragged it everywhere it’s registerable online as a user name (◕ᴗ◕ ✿)

The name “Lee” means “Dweller by the meadow” this I got from the meaning of names in an encyclopedia back when they were on bookshelves in homes :smile: It also said it’s an English name, meaning. In the west, males are often given “Lee” as a first name. Uhmmm, I guest being the fifth girl in my family, meant they had hoped for a third boy? I never thought of that until right now, interesting! Or maybe the influence from the close knit Jamaican Asians in our community, and families from the 70s!!
We all know “Lee” is very much “Chinese, and Korean” last names, do you know their authentic meaning of the name “Lee” ?


#94

I used my nick name Sofis and put some numbers, Sofis is a beatiful name i really like my name


#95

Lee is also an Anglo-Saxon American last name. i.e. Robert E. Lee

BTW, Lee, Rhee, Yi, Ree, Ri (李) are all the same last name in Korea. Ri (리) is typically used in North Korea, but it’s pronounced more like Yi (이) in South Korea. Chinese usually spell it as Lee or Li.


#96

(。◕‿◕。) Lee, and Li’s interchangeable use, and pronounced the same, I have come across in my readings. It is enlightening to learn of the north :kr:, and south :kr: use. It’s my first time learning about:

Thanks @ajumma2 ! (◕ᴗ◕✿)
