  2. Well, I tried to register as Mike but the name was already taken. I then remembered my old school nickname “Spike” that matched my hair style. :D

    Onyx was the working name of a band that I was putting together at the time that I registered with TalkBass.
    I thought it had a nice ring to it.

    Mine's the first initial plus the first four letters of my last name. Compuserve wouldn't give me anything else I tried. I do not actually consider myself 'da heat'.

    Well, my name is Robin. Those of you who know the story about Robin Hood (duh!) will know that Loxley was his real sirname. Also... I have given my old Legend bass the appropriate name: Marion :D

    I though Loxley was a town or something :confused: Wasn't it Robin of Loxley?
    My name was taken by the admin. so I had to search for a suitable replacement. There were many considerations involved in the endevor. I needed a name that I could remember yet wouldn't be offensive so "yuadablomie" was out. It also needed to convey a message and have a certain amount of integrity. Lastly, I thought it should say something about what I like to do...play bass. I thought about Bassplayer, but since that was taken by the magazine I didn't want to risk copyright infringement or anything so I shortened it to Player. It was also a name that I had used numerous times at other venues, so it seemed the logical choice. :D

    well it all started back in 1984........ then my mom gave birth to a ten and a haf pound baby and thought you know what i gonna name this kid Ross.So one of the most imortant choices of my life was choosen by my mom before i was able to tell her what name i wanted some how that seems unfair? but, eventually i forgiven my mom due to some story about birth certificates and the names not that bad
     
  18. mine is from the very old pink panther cartoon's not the movies, but when it used to be a tv cartoon. in more then one episode, when the pink panther was in alaska, there was this short little eskamo dude, and he was selling frozen seal pop's, and he would annoy the hell out of the pink panther, and he would always chant "me muttluk!" so i've used this s/n for mail, talkbass, aim, everything. later i found out theres a http://www.muttluks.com take a look, quite odd.
     
  19. When we changed boards a couple times ago I had a diferent user name and the board would not accept it so in the heat of the moment I became bassdude the first name to cross my mind.
     
  20. What's there to explain? It's my name, first and last. I am scotish and damn proud of it!

    Rock on
