What Does Your Username Mean?

Does your username have a meaning? Why’d you pick it for this site? Explain. I used to post on a BGLO chatroom called black Greek forums. I tried to use my username I had over there over here. It was taken. I tried others frat related and those were taken too. So I just chose my middle-name Zachary. Zach.

Mine is my sorority's flower. It was supposed to have a capital C but came out with a little one and was too hard to change.

Titchou is a Cajun term of endearment. It is short for petite chou - little cabbage,

Jolene is a nickname my sister randomly gave me when I was around 12 (my mom hated it). And then her friends started calling me that... and then my friends. And they still call me that. My sister, BIL, niece, nephew, oldest friends never call me by my real name.

I went to a relatively small college. After I crossed into Kappa Land, a sorority on campus started calling me “Pretty (insert real first name)”. Then it began to spread across campus and into the college across the street. So then when people on campus would see me going to class, or if I was hanging out at the other college across the street, that’s what they’d call me and the name stuck. That, and I’ve always been told I’m “good looking/handsome/pretty”, so I just said what the hell, I’ll use PrettyBoy.

Today, when I go back for homecoming, I am still called that name by people I was in college with.

D9 GC members thought I chose PrettyBoy because of the Kappa Alpha Psi stereotype. Not the reason at all.

For those who remember their elementary French classes, way back in GC history someone else's username was mon petit. They haven't posted in forever. Used to wonder if Titchou and mon petit knew one another IRL.

I like those. You’re only a few posts in. See if the mods can change it. Either that or start a new username.

I'm a member of Alpha Gamma Delta (AGD) and my nickname in highschool and college was Dee. So it worked. It was also my personalized license plate for many years but I decided that was just too expensive for no good reason so I let it go.
