 after reading  the 'Real You' post and trying to put faces with screen names.. I got curious about some of your screen names.

Why did you choose what you chose?

Mine is pretty unimaginative... first name + middle name.... lol

How about yours?

 I tried to come up with a clever one but kept coming back as already taken so like you I used my first name and typed in random numbers.

I choose "wildchild" because that's what I call my son when he's acting crazy. Love my little wildchild!

mine is a name I've used since the mid 90s!  ratchet is the nickname my dad gave me when I was young.... he was a mechanic and I talk a lot... and it was close to my name Rachael... the lee is my middle name


I wish now I could change my s/n....because 'ratchet' now has a negative meaning, but I can't......

Well, I have more animals than children, so with four cats, an big ADHD dog, a lop eared bunny, and an aquarium, a14 yr old hormonal son, and an " alleged " 3 yr old boy ( who I'm convinced is possessed!) :-) PLUS a husband, so I felt momofmenagrie fit quite well.

Maybe it does.... But I must not know about it! The first thing I think about is the vid game "Ratchet and Clank" the my son ands husband play frequently. :-)

And my absolutely fav name is " Rachel " , my dear... No matter the spelling.

I know people will say things like "I need a pedicure, my feet are looking ratchety".... or things like that.  I think it is also to mean someone who thinks they are 'eye candy' to men, but are not.  

Those kinds of meanings.  I've even had people on here that have messaged me to ask if I was embarrassed by my screen name, lol........

So there may be other meanings that I am not aware of!
