The name of my new kitten is called...ROMEO!
Although shes female we have stook to the name.The main reason being my partner and i run our own karaoke buisness called Nosh&Decks after posh&Becks.Im nosh as i like food and Decks is my partner as he does the decks part of the buisness.
I wanted to keep a name in the buisness so i thought of something to go with posh and becks.I didnt like Brooklyn so i chose Romeo as its also a name to do with love.

Tell me what you guys think,good or bad.

[quote=katson7]My stepsisters name is Katarzyna...QUOTE]

That's my sister-in-law's name! Although she is Kasia for short. Are you Polish by chance?

I chose my name because it's what I've been called in the web design community forever. My name is Diana-Marie and my first web development company was called DiMa Design (pronounced Dee-Mah). Now we are Flying Tiger Web Design, but still I'm called DiMa. It's easier to write and say than Diana-Marie, I guess. Even when I go to web design conferences it's on my name tag already and on the schedules, too Nobody knows me by Diana-Marie anymore, but everybody in the Macromedia community knows who DiMa is! My reputation proceeds me...uh oh.

The name serena_p is one I've been using since high school. Serena comes from my love of the Japanese anime Sailor Moon. (Serena is the name of the main character.) The p stands for my real name, which is Pamela.

Well I love grey kittens... But I joined another cat message board first and someone else (Evidently not someone very active if at all) already had GreyKittenLove so I changed it to GrayKittenLove.

I normally choose sunflower as my nickname but it was taken here. My friend used that as my nickname when he had a crush on me and wanted to talk about me in front of me. Dork. So I chose sensgirl because my favourite hockey team is the Ottawa Senators. Senators is too long so its Sens. Oh and I'm a girl.

For some reason, my dutch grandparents couldn't spell 'Jamie'. On every card or letter I ever got from them, my name was spelled 'Jeamy', with two dots above the 'y'. When the internet came along, it seemed like a good fit, since I was already used to seeing it in print.

It's kind of strange, because they never had any trouble spelling my brothers' names.

Mark Kumpf is really Mark Thomas Kumpf. Welcome to the world of the totally obvious. I got the last part from my parents and the first part from my parents. My middle name (Thomas) I got from my dad.

When I joined TCS it was in response to a specific issue (See I don't even mention the issue anymore Hissy!). Rather than use a handle or nickname I figured the best way to present myself was as... myself. In other places I am dogcop481 or mdog. Not here. And that "guest" thing got real old real quick. I hated having to only stand outside and watch and not be able to participate.

Tania, its been so long, my old friend is south african and so he taught me some afrikaans - I have forgotten a lot of it, and my dictionary is at home - so in answer to your question, a friend taught me

What exactly is yebo gogo? he always said that in letters.

I worked for a number of years at an Arabian horse breeding farm that bred, raised, and trained Arabians in Dressage and Halter. Bossinova was the first horse I was a huge part in the training of. I did countless hours of groundwork with her, as well as basics in halter (I was still learning, too) and some dressage. It was an experience that I will always remember and cherish. It opened up my eyes to the bonds that can be formed with horses while doing groundwork. I love her, and if I had $65,000 to spend, she would have been mine ages ago!

I tried a couple of others but they were already taken, and Charm was sitting in my lap at the time.

Cool I speak some Polish but not a lot. Just enough to get buy. I speak fluent German and many Poles speak it as well so while in Poland I usually get by with a mixture of both.

My brother and his family live in Krakow. Poland is a gorgeous country!

Easy - my first name. I figured that if I just use that, people won't misspell it (as they've been doing all my life...from Allison to Allyisson, although I believe the person who misspelled the latter of the two was drunk at the time)

That's easy - it's short for Jamie Cat! And he got his name because his "tuxedo" reminded me of James Bond. I needed a double name, because my husband has this weird tick - he never addresses anybody by their first name (even me). This way, I can say "Jamie", and he can say "Cat" or "Katz'" when he's talking to the cat. Pretty strange, huh?

Kellye, yebo gogo means 'yes grandmother' in Zulu. It comes from a SA cell phone company's funny TV advertising campaign.
