How did you get your username?
I got my username when I was first online at a local Bulletin Board System. At that time almost all chats and messages were local that I was aware of.
I looked for someone I wanted to be more like in real life, someone who was a lot more outgoing and upbeat.. an alter ego. I selected Beverly, someone that I liked her personality at work.
I became Beverely, it got shortened to Bev in a very special BBS I was on, then the second V was added later as I went on IRC and BEV was a common username.
So I have been Bevv for 9 or so years.
What about you? How did you get your username and how long have you been "you"?
