Favorite CH user names

I know there's a long thread on how hounds picked their "e-lias", but if there is a comprehensive list of user names, I haven't been able to find it through searching the site.
Skimming an old thread today, I noticed a great handle: "Alimentary My Dear Watson".

What are your favorite CH names?

  1. My favourite is "Chocolatessa".

    1. I like our goddesses, bermudagourmet and purple
      and Passadumkeg and his maple syrple.
      Susanna The Conqueress can kick some butt
      and jfood is an avuncular mutt.
      Kattyeyes must be a svelte looking feline
      and when tatamagouche blogs, I make a bee-line.
      Crank it up with a boom shaka laka
      and a slam-dunk for our Sam Fujisaka.

        <<kattyeyes holds up a lighter>> Nicely done, V!

        It's so strange. I was thinking of this very topic the other day. Some of my favorite names are the especially clever ones:
        al b. darned
        Ima Wurdibitsch

        There are so many more that I can't recall. I hope others will add to the list.

        And because I think it takes guts to post under your given name, a shout out to the many Chowhounds who keep it real:
        Caitlin McGrath
        Will Owen

        Rock on, both the clever and the brave! :)

        1. re: kattyeyes

          Thumbs up to your favorites, katty! Although most likely the second group of names on your list are real, we can't be sure that, for example, Alan is really Mr. Barnes. I knew an Alana Lipschitz who legally changed her name as soon as she turned 18. And yes, I meant LAST name. Can't really blame her, although by 18 the worst of the peer group mockery was probably behind her. I wonder how many Liptons were born Liptons?

          1. re: greygarious

            Oh, I was hoping you meant she changed it *to* Lipschitz—that would be awesome.

            1. re: greygarious

              Haha! Incidentally, Ralph Lauren was born Ralph Lifshitz. *The more you know . . . *

              Right after I read this thread I came across user GloriaSwansonsTVdinner ... made me chuckle.

              1. re: kattyeyes

                Ah but yes, I might not use my real name, but my "avatar" is ALL ME doing my second favorite

                1. re: bermudagourmetgoddess

                  I think the real photo puts you in the "brave" category! :)

              2. re: Veggo

                Ain't you a doll! Leggo my Veggo.

                I don't know how often this person posts, but when I saw Seitan's Minion recently I was charmed.

                1. re: tatamagouche

                  For the sake of his ego,
                  He's a man we call Veggo.
                  Not to rhyme with a waffle--
                  It's simply not lawful. ;)

                    1. re: kattyeyes

                      I pronounce his name Vay - go
                      Sounds more Continental.
                      When push comes to shove
                      Not to sound too judgemental
                      I'll go with whatever the wind blows.

                2. Just came across cowboyardee.

                  1. I have to say I think yours is one of the clever ones, too. I've come across quite a few that catch my eye but can't think of them right now. I can't remember if it was here but yoyomama was pretty funny.

                    1. If I had to choose one....other than my own, it would be .....meatn3....

                      But from my heart, I nominate all who have passed, or all who have been banned....
