I was wondering if you all could help get me a nickname for here. It seems everyone is using nickname. I would like one too.

What's wrong with Jeanette? Sounds fine to me.

Not everyone has a nickname, Clara and Trinity don't. There's too many Mikes for me to use my name; most people call me Scribb's, although Greybeard calls me ########! :D

Yeah Jeanette is fine...maybe I'll change mine to Jeanette also...j/k...

S&W Winger is my real name elsewhere, so I just kept it...and also add my birth name on the signature line below each post...

But if you feel you really need a nickname...

...tell us all about you, and we would be sure to help...

Jeanette sounds good to me too. I use brockit79 based on 'I broke it' as in referring to my back then 79 the year I was born.

Good luck with the search :)

I knew a Jeanette, never liked that name, never liked the bitch that had the name, she done very bad things to my little woofy and I have always had a complex about the name Jeanette..........


So..... um, Hi Jeanette, did I tell you, I'm me?
Seemingly, "support" is very "serious" and you should never have a thought of your own..... My Blog

All my friends call me Chel for short, so how about Nett or Net-te, Jennie, Jnet or maybe Jean, but I also think your name is beautiful and my suggestions maybe off the wall, but I tried. :dunno:

My sister's name is Janette (nearly the same) but is known affectionately by most as "Nettie". She loves it.
There's always a way.

"I" already coined that suggestion! So, if she takes it, I'll require a simple finders fee . . . $100 sounds fair.

Nettie sounds like someone in a hair-net having a bad day. Mamajean is good because you have all those kids and for short it could be mj.
