Favorite CH user names

greygarious May 18, 2010 10:32 AM

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?

    My favourite is "Chocolatessa".

    1. Veggo RE: greygarious May 18, 2010 01:00 PM

      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! :)

          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?

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

                            Wish I had selected something more original for my name. If I had to start all over again, it would be "Pudding Face", as that was what a little girl I met many years who took to me instantly called me. Hindsight.....

                                I too wish I'd given a bit more thought to my choice of username - but how was I to know, back when I started posting, that seven years later this site would be sucking up so much of my spare time? ;-)

                                Ironically, on several non-food-related sites (including the dating site on which I met my wife back in the previous century) I've used the name saltimbocca. I have no idea why I didn't use it when I started on Chowhound. I guess I assumed it would be pretentious to name myself after actual chow.

                                As for names I like - Perilagu Khan is my current favorite, along with good old BarmyFotheringayPhipps. As an old P.G. Woodhouse fan I know the derivation (and pronunciation!) of the latter, but would love to hear from Perilagu how he came up with his.

                                          I use a wafflemaker, but if there isn't already an Eggomaniac, there should be!

                                                      New to CH (unless it's a change of handle) and new to my Top 5 favorites: Keyser Saucier. His profile follows through on the theme, and his first post is a knowledgeable one. My expectations for this Hound compare to those of sports fans for that new pitcher phenom.

And my chowhound history isn't all that storied that I couldn't afford to lose it, but I'm saturngrrl in other places and I would probably just confuse myself (or forget I had a different user name and not be able to log in at all! LOL!).

Let's see, we are talking early 80's, so no he isn't too young. I'm sure he'd blush a little with me telling that story. He's 31 and likes to cook, so junior childs would be very aprapro..
