I use Bumblegrum because "Grumblebum" seems to be a very popular choice for people my age.    It's simply a case of substituting "b" for "gr" and "gr" for "b" and is most definitely a play on words.

I chose my name because I have an interest in chemistry and alchemy.  I could get into a long description, but in the interest of keeping this brief....I'll just note that the word alchemy is believed to be derived from the greek word chemeia.  Additionally, alchemy is considered the precursor to modern chemistry.

So basically, I like the idea of using this early word for alchemy and chemistry.  Plus, I think it sounds cool.

So you're not born in the year 1195? Otherwise I could congratualate you with being the oldest member here.
Now the only thing I can do is welcoming you to the forum. ;)

Thats a very beautiful name, in my opinion. How do you pronounce it?

I chose AnnaGlaid because it was the name of my first rich, happy, vampire sim. I lost her when a bug struck and I had to reinstall all of my games >:(

Thanks!  It is pronounced   Ke (short e)- mee' - ah

I tried to find a real pronunciation key for it, but no luck, so we're stuck with my attempt.

I wonder from which country your name came from. I don't know any in which you pronounce the 'ch' as a 'ke' with a short 'e.'

chemeia did say her name originated in part from the word chemistry, which in English would have the same sound at the start.

Yes CSquared2. 

If you're really interested, I would recommend that you Google "chemistry etymology".  There are some good explanations out there.  Much better than I can provide.   :o

Did you really graduate from HS in 1992? I was going on 3 back then. My sister was born that year. (Too bad she's bigger than me now!)

Mine of course is my first name, and middle name combined. I know some people have had their posts edited to censor their first and middle names. I can understand a first name, but I never got why revealing one's middle name on the internet would be a danger. Maybe I don't see the danger in it because my middle name is literally the most popular middle name in the whole world. (Marie).

Rainbows would be prettier if they were in neon colors, and I have neon blue High-high top Converse. Hehe, I wear them everywhere.

Hmm.. I don't think i've posted in this thread yet ::) Well, most of the time when I pick a username I use beka538, but I wanted something more The Sims related, so I thought, well I always thought simlish was a pretty funny language to listen to… Thus, simlishlol ;D
