Quick question. How did you choose your user name here on OH?
I pretty much try to avoid having to pick one. Obviously I'm not very creative (Amy R.!). But I want to join a new-to-me forum and that group requires a pseudonym or pen name. If you have one, how did you come up with it?
Such a stupid question I know, but I need help! Thoughts? Anybody?
Gwen is a childhood nickname that my best friend's dad gave me. I called on the phone once and he answered. He said, "Is this [real name]?" And I replied, snarkily, "No, it's her evil twin." And, without missing a beat, he called to my friend, "Hey! Gwendolyn is on the phone for you!"
And.. it sort of stuck. So I've used it as my online handle for forever.

My original name was Britkim, because I'm British and my name is Kim - who knew I could be so innovative? My account was deleted for about 18 months - some older members may remember the mass deletions and the bolthole Quix.
Opened a new account as Singirl, because I was at that time living in Singapore, later changed to SinKim as OH became friendlier and less doxxy.
Became Citizen Kim in 2014, when I became a citizen of the USA!
