Your name doesn't have anything on this guy's screen name

I always wondered why people called you that. It never dawned on me that it was YOUR NAME.

...and nope, it's not short for anything, although usually people w/ my name are usually Liesbeth, Liesl, or Liese. Lies is basically like "Liz", just another derivative of Elizabeth.

Back in the days of Mplayer, I needed a username. I wanted something different. I liked Raven.. and then I started going through colours to see what fit best. I like Raven Red, but RavenBlue just seemed to flow. It's been my main s/n just about everywhere

Red Rocks= One their best performances ever.

Funny thing is when I meet new people from here, they always go RED ROCKS!

I do the same like when I met Deadmansparty (Ricky) at his bar

I still call Sicy, Sicy instead of her real name and Doozer, Dooz instead of Kathie. (She calls me Doorknob )
Go figure

It's not just a screen name but my widely used nickname and pseudonym.

Anu (pronounced Ah-new) is short for Anuran which means frog in Latin.

From 1988-2003, I was known as Sunfrog or Sunfrog Jazz or Andy Sunfrog. Now, I go by Anu, Anuran, or Anuran Sol. I have a new last name to go with it, so I'm often signing things Anu Bonobo. My partner is Viva Bonobo.
Stand up to rock stars!

In the movie "Major League", there is a baseball player character named Pedro Cerrano (played by Dennis Haysbert who has gone on to be recognized as President Palmer in "24" and the All-State insurance spokesperson). He prays to a little idol in his locker that he called jobu.

My husband's name is Joe and his friends started calling him joeboo after that movie came out. We when got married, they started calling me dawnboo (my first name is Dawn) and when our son Matthew was born, they christened him Mattboo.

Thora - a nickname I've had for years. My friends and I were drunk one night, and decided to look up Nordic goddess sounding names for each other. All of the names we picked ended in the letter "a" for some reason.

SEB - my initials.

I added SEB because I thought Thora would be taken. It wasn't. I don't like the SEB part, but what can you do.
Insert something interesting here
