what does your screen name mean? some are pretty simple to figure out. mine's easy, my slk has a v8 motor, thus v8slk. some aren't so easy to figure out tho... so what does yours mean???
:tu: Yup, need more participation. Interesting screen names and what's the reasoning behind them. I've noticed several members listing their first names in their signatures. I've included mine and I think it's a good idea.V8SLK said:with all of the new members lately and some less obvious screen names, i'll ask again... what the meaning of your screenname?
e=Eddy (I don't know why dad did this, but it's not Edward or Eddie, just Eddy)DesignoSLK said:Edward Timothy or Edward Thomas?
Was your dad an electrical engineer? Hence "Eddy" current? Cool to be original though, yes?etyu said:e=Eddy (I don't know why dad did this, but it's not Edward or Eddie, just Eddy)
t=Tan (mom's last name, I guess it was an Asian thing then to use mom's last name as the middle name -- c1950's; co-workers say the t=trouble :biglaugh
Although I wouldn't mind either: Edward Timothy or Edward Thomas.
Dad was a businessman then, now retired, and didn't know English that well. He asked a friend's suggestion (World War II US serviceman) and that's how I got the name. Little did he know that he was to going to get some turbulence (eddy). :biglaugh: Sorryfftopic:DesignoSLK said:Was your dad an electrical engineer? Hence "Eddy" current?

Funny thing about being a parent (I'm not one, but still funny.) They can name a kid anything they want and the kid has nothing to say about it. Frank Zappa comes to mind: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet, and Diva Muffin. However, I'm certain your Dad's naming you wasn't drug induced...LOL. Although, I'm not asserting Mr. Zappa was into any of that.
Sorry...a little OT.
