I travel extensively, and although trek means journey, usually on foot, my travels are almost always by air but many, many journey's throughout the year all over the world. The 954 is my area code since trekker was already taken and I had to come up with something.

I'm not so creative as others. It is actually my first name. I get a lot of comments from people I first meet on how they have never heard the name before. I normally just say it is Welsh. However, that is not completely true. According to the family lore I was supposed to be named Bronwyn, but upon my birth when my father was filling out the birth certificate he miss-spelled it and Browren stuck.

Most people think I have the name Tub Lady because I was as big as a tub. No so, or I might have been as big as a tub, but the business I am in repairs tubs, so I am known as the tub lady. I even had it on my license plate at one time.
I have thought about changing it here at Spark, but then I have to notify everyone and I am not sure I am ready to do that right now.

I'm Sea Dame because I found this site on Cruise Critic where I'm Dame@Sea but I couldn't use the @ sign here. I picked Dame@Sea because I've always loved the water, I think I was a pirate in a previous life. I'm planning a cruise as a reward for finishing a marathon. I'm dame because I admire those femme fatals from the 1940's film noir movies. A male coworker one called me a dame because I'm don't take crap from people but I also know when to laugh and I have a great set of pins.

Which got shortened to "You red Fred?" and many variations because of course Fred Flintstone was married to Wilma which sounds like Thelma ...

"Turkle" was how turtle was pronounced in one of Booth Tarkington's Penrod books. My father loved the books and gave me a stuffed toy turtle when I was 15 or 16 which I called Turkle. I still have Turkle, in fact, although he is due for yet another refurbishing.

I have decided once and for all to create a healthier, more active lifestyle and stick to it, thus the "NEWSTART". My greatest motivation is my 2yr old daughter to whom I want to teach good habits and for whom I want to be healthier. My second biggest motivation is that my husband and I would like to add to our family and I'd like to get as healthy as possible before I get pregnant, thus the "MOMMY".

Be positive. Stay motivated. Keep moving.

And I'm definitely going to keep eating :)

It was snowing like mad the day I joined SparkPeople. There was already a couple of feet of white stuff on the ground. I couldn't imagine summer or spring flowers or autumn leaves -- only snow and more snow. So I thought, why not embrace it. It's absolutely beautiful. So I did -- and became MsSnowy! Now it's getting on toward spring and the snow is gone, but I still like the name.

It was snowing like mad the day I joined SparkPeople. There was already a couple of feet of white stuff on the ground. I couldn't imagine summer or spring flowers or autumn leaves -- only snow and more snow. So I thought, why not embrace it. It's absolutely beautiful. So I did -- and became MsSnowy! Now it's getting on toward spring and the snow is gone, but I still like the name.

JoKnows -- back in the late 80s, I remember these commercials starring the athlete Bo Jackson. He was some kind of super athlete because he played two professional sports: baseball and football, I think. Anyway, at the end of the commerical, I remember he would say, buy xyz, because Bo Knows. Since my nickname is Jo, I just thought that sounded catchy, and guess what -- Jo Knows!

My Spark name is the same as my email addy so I can remember it LOL. I've been using it for 10+ years. My exhusband and I owned 2 jeeps at the time, a 1994 Cherokee and a 1982 CJ7. I don't have that husband anymore, both jeeps are gone but the name lives on!

"Gadabout", as most of you probably know, is a word meaning "traveler." Obviously, I like travel :) so this is a little nod to my wanderlust. The "diva" added at the end is a thing that started in HS between myself and a friend of mine. We started calling ourselves The Divas, and it just sort of stuck. To this day, most of our screen names contain the word "diva".

*Note: I'm not really a "diva" nor do I actually act like one. I think we did it, mostly, because it annoyed our other friends.

I was (possibly still am) a little bit obsessed with the band frou frou. I then met my best friend who described my dress sense as frou-frou (not knowing I already had a thing for the word). I then got the nickname frou frou girl, which shortened itself to froufroug.

When I was born I was Kathy Cassy. As a small child I couldn't say the "K" sound back to back. So my name was said: Kathy Sassy. As I grew older.... college days... I became quite the SASSY one. : ) but still remained very much a lady. Now at 50 yrs. young... my sister still calls me Sassy and my brother calls me Rick.. as he wanted a little brother. No wonder I"'so confused. LOL

I am mostly Irish, something about which I am very proud. (Plus, I love Ireland!) My last name is not Aguirre, but it should be - That was the last name of my husband' grandfather when he came to the US as a child, but his stepfather gave him an English last name, and the family has been that name ever since. His family is Basque, with a long history in Mexico after leaving Spain, about which he is very proud!

Ok, well I'll give you the short story on mine: As a senior in HS, I was interning with a local teen theatre troupe doing FAME: the Musical. Our Musical director left and being that I was the only one in the pit crew whose instrument didn't have a part in the play (cello) I got voted to take over. The kids started calling me Maestro (the ones with no romance language training) and the other half called me Maestra. It was shortly there after Maestra Rach (which was my screen name through college) and then at some point I had to shorten it for an AOL screen name so I took out the space and one of the RA sets and it became maestrach. It's symbolic to me of my love of teaching (both music and regular subjects) and that when you know nothing and you're willing to give it everything you have, you can always come out on top. Which has been a life story for me (every major accomplishment in my life has been this way).

Sorry if that was too long winded...I can get overly chatty when I have time on here.

Rach

S - Start slowly, set yourself up for success
T - Try new things, don't say you can't do something or don't like something before you have tried it.
A - Add movement everywhere, walking farther, calf raises while waiting in line, etc.
R - Realize that you are human & will make mistakes
T- Take time to recognize your successes - celebrate!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can and the wisdom to know it's me.

Jo- for my name Jo-Ann, and the Dough is what gets me into trouble. I first chose a form of it when I was on the Prevention South Beach Diet forum.

Doughy things - dumplings, gnocchi, noodles -- you name it! They are getting better nutritionally, but moderation is still the name of the game. But put me in front of a dish of Shanghai noodles, or pot stickers, and I have trouble!!

Hope...started using it when the internet was young and have stuck with it ever since. Like it as a name, but wish I had 'saved' it as a kid's name!

NJ- where I grew up.

16- It became my favorite number because it seemed like I was frequently assigned the number 16 in elementary school. It had to do with my maiden name being a P, and the chances of that falling in slot 16 in a class of 20 or 25 kids was pretty good!

Well actually that one is because my Dad when I was a teenager had a very weird nickname for me.
He'd come up to me, cuddle me close and say in a goofy voice "My little desert rodent"
It more or less stuck with me into adulthood.

Please tell us a little more:

Why did you choose your Spark Name, what it means, or special significance for you...

I'll start it off -

I choose name The_Silver_Owl because:

a. Owls represent wisdom. I knew I would need to make some wise choices if I wanted to make some positive changes in my life.
b. The silver part refers to my "natural" hair color
emoticon
c. I had a fun picture to use for my icon

How about you???
