Just curious, especially those of you who don't use any part of your real name as your user name. What and why did you pick your BF name?
I used Joey Brooks (not my real name) because of high school baseball. I was a pretty fair third baseman and a fellow named Brooks Robinson played for the Orioles at the time at third base. Guys on my team started calling me Brooks, and it stuck.
As for Joey, that's a nickname given to me by my family long as I can remember.
I never post my real name on the Internet.
OK! Fill me in on yours if you will!
EDIT: Funny, MY user name here is JoeyBike, not Joey Brooks! My bad. joeybike (all lower case) was invented by me in 1994 with the acquisition of my very first email account because my first ten choices were already taken. Ironically, I registered as Joey Brooks - not my real name - and have ever since. When I signed up here, JoeyBike was a no brainer.
