OK some of them are obvious - or at least they seem obvious. Did you pick your name because it had to do with your favorite character? Your kids? Your pet? Did you put much thought into it or just pick whatever came to mind first? Was it your first choice, or was something else already taken or too similar? Obviously don't give away secrets or personal info, but if you'd like to share, I think folks will find it interesting to know why anyone picked what they picked. We may make assumptions about what a name means and could be totally off! I'll go first - mine falls pretty much into the simple/obvious category. Tony the Tigger Obviously a play on "Tony the Tiger" from Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, a character I liked since childhood in the 1970s, and has been associated with me since I was a kid, since my name really is Anthony/Tony. And I actually used to eat that stuff. Side note: My family and friends I met up through high school always did and usually still call me Anthony. In my late teens, a manager at a retail job started calling me Tony, and it ended up sticking. Re: using my real name: I thought (when I signed up for this site) it would be harmless, nothing like the vicious political sites I've been on before. I don't know if Tony the Tiger was the inspiration or the other way around, but I've always liked tigers. Remember the Exxon tiger that used to be on the gas pumps? I always wanted my Dad to go to that gas station just because of the tiger. I have drawn tigers, done school reports on them, hung pictures of them in old apartments (none in our house now. It was a phase LOL) And the natural extension of all of that is I always loved Tigger. He was definitely the most entertaining of the Pooh lore for me - and was OK with being different. I don't know if I could pick one favorite Disney character, but he's definitely right up there. This is probably the picture of myself I love the most to this day (sorry for those of you who have seen it before.) It's from about 17 years ago, I think.
