Wow that's a cool name. I wish people called me something like that lol.

Yeah, but you've got a cool first name, if it's Phoenix.

LlamaMama,

Gno. Gno good could come from you gnaming yourself "YoMama."

And I really agree, gardegn gnomes might make a better "mascot," but I think Will Wright has some surreal fascignation with llamas.

Just wondering, why did you put G's in front of all of the N's in this post?? But you missed "accidentally", that was spelled right.

I personally think garden gnomes would make a better mascot. But GnomeMama would rhyme with YoMama, and no good could come from that.

Ah, I see. Sometimes I accidentally skip the second half of a post while hurrying to read all of them and move on to my next internet task. Thank you for helping me out with that one  :D

The Cub is a nickname from my job. They've been calling me that for so long I don't even remember how it started. I work with a lot of guys named Rob so sometimes it's just easier if they call me Cub.

My current avatar is Cubby, my self-sim. I tried to get him to look as much like me as possible. It's not quite exact; Cubby doesn't have any gray hair, and his weigh slider is a little further to the left than it should be. :) I was using that picture on my Facebook profile for a while, and even friends who don't play The Sims were surprised at how much it looks like me.

This thread is a lot of fun to read!

In one of my very first Sims 1 neighborhoods, I named each of the several families after a color (Brown, Violet, White, etc.).  My favorite sim was one I named Celine Green--a skinny, pink-haired, musician type (in other words--nothing like myself, lol).  She was so much fun to play that I've replicated her in every Sims version since, and named my forum self after her, too.

@MasterSiwal: Phoenix is your name? How cool is that, named after a immortal bird that comes back to life every 1000 years or so.
And, please forgive me my little knowleadge about America, I thought it was a state to there.

@celinegreen1969: Making the same sim over and over again in every game is indeed fun. I remember having an Agatha sim (which was a choice for me for an alternate account name), named after I saw the movie Minority Report with Tom Cruise. For some reason I find it a good name.

Indeed it is (my first name is Phoenix). I don't think my name is that cool.

Being called Phoenix is as cool as having played Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 8)

That's a brilliant name MasterSiwel !!

To be honest, I've never played the game. I only had a friend who played it and he was one of the main inspirations for "watching" the game. But I have become a fan and I'm going to buy the game soon. Also I watch my takasatsu cartoons on youtube (since I can't watch them here). But I have played a few classic games... On an emulator.

There's a state called Arizona and the biggest city there is Phoenix.  So, it would be Phoenix, Arizona.

Lisbeth is my first name :P I was quite surprised that it was available at this site. I usually have to add some numbers. Maybe I could've been more creative but the thing is that I'm quite forgetful when it comes to usernames and passwords so I like to keep it simple.

Many great stories in this thread:D I love how creative some of you guys are!

Wow, been reading some of these really cool aliases derived from such creative and clever ideas. Great stories. Unfortunately, I chose mine simply because I LOVE pie.  :P

Pielord,

I suspected you'd chosen your name because you have a fondness for pie!

I have to admit, the first time I saw your name here on the Forum, I had a brief mental image of that guy from Lord of the Dance tap-dancing and high-stepping in circles, with two pies balanced carefully above his head.

Luckily, I didn't hear any Irish-jig music, it was just the brief mental image.  :D

I live in Texas, and the state flower of Texas is the .. Bluebonnet. I've blue eyes, blue is my favorite color and bluebonnets are among my favorite flowers. I chose Bluebonnet as first name when I joined Second Live over three years ago, and my picture is my "real" SL avatar, looking quite similar. I use this name in some other forums too, and Blue became my nickname ever since.

I was a home mortgage broker and processor for many years both in Colorado and in Arizona, USA.  I am also a female.  Mtglady is short for 'Mortgage Lady'.  I have used this name on many sites for many years but I changed my Sims 3 site login to debsilva3 accidently when the Sims 3 came out and now I can't change it back. 
My avatar is sort of like me except my hair is longer and very curly.  It is still fairly a reddish brown color with a few white hairs (more and more keep showing up so eventually I might look like this - lol!) and I wear glasses.   ;D

I'm in South Carolina and loudly proclaiming my desire to move almost any where else.

I got RunAmok from the friend who introduced me to The Sims. She plays in a controlled way and likes to know what her Sims are up to and direct them to their next task. I was going through a phase of putting a lot of unrelated Sims in a house and letting their free will loose to see what they would do. She would ask me how I could just let my Sims run amok.

TollingBells, Yep, that's "Kumagoro!"  :)

Sorry I did not reply, but I was away on vacation. It's cool to meet fellow Anime fans!  :D

Siwel, I love your name. It's a very pretty name, hehe.  ;) I always think of the giant, fiery birds, not the city.

Hey, guys, I'd love to hear more about the avatars everyone uses. I love the stories behind some of them.

Well, my name is Esther and I was born in 1981! Ever since I started playing TS3, I've like Cornelia Goth, so when it came time to put up a pic, I used her! I do not look anything like her, unfortunately!

I know, it's craziness. Texas Tech has a school here with the last 2 years...but you have to do the first two in either Amarillo or Abilene. I'm glad though, I've been looking for a reason to get out of here for a while now. And it's not just because of the heat. hehe
