flist friday: nicknames  
Happy Friday!

I hope you guys are having a good one and that the waether will cooperate with whatever you want to do over the weekend! Here it's suppose to be cold but sunny so I hope I'll be able to spend a nice Sunday with Eric on the Vespa, going to visit our favorite spots before he leaves. He's going to be on Watch* on Saturday so I'll drop him off on Saturday morning at 7.29 and I'll be able to pick him up on Sunday at 7.31.

*Watch: On Yachts there always have to be someone on board when in Port, so there is a rooster in place where every day one member of every department (Interior Stewart/Stewardess, Deckhand and Engineer) has to stay on board on call for 24 hours. These 3 crew members can't leave the boat and have to take care of some tasks, like rounds and complete checklists.

The question I want to ask you today is from one of the Memes I did a while ago, so for some of you I might already know the answer (but I probably forgot because I'm so bad a remembering these kind of things) but please feel free to repeat if you feel to:


.What's the story behind your nick name?
.Do you have the same nickname everywhere or you have different ones? In that case What's your favorite?
.Was your nickname here on LJ your one and only choice or you had some other ones in mind? What made you choose this one, in that case?

For me it's easy and lame LOL. My nickname is erychan86 because my name is Erika (but my friends call me Ery) Chan is because I grew up loving manga and anime and I am the kind of person who would be called Erika-chan by everyone xD and 86 because I was born in 1986 :D
I'm erychan86 or simply erychan everywhere. I think my first nickname was akirE, but it was a LONG TIME AGO. I always use erychan/erychan86 when I fill in the nick name part because I'm so used to it and I've never thought about changing it! :D

What about you?

Enjoy your day with Eric <3 It will be sunny and blue skyes here and I have plans to out with camera. Many leaves are deep red and rust coloured now, and I want to capture that before the trees are all bare.

What's the story behind your nick name?

I chose this name when I was battling depression. Verdande I took from norse mythology. She is one of three norns and they weave the fates of gods and human. They are a type of goddesses. They each govern the past, present and future, and the present is governed by Verdande. At the time when I chose this name it was important for me to anchor myself to the present and find reasons to stay rooted in the here and now. Mi is just a dialect version of me/I in Norwegian, and again it has to do with me needed a focus on myself.

Do you have the same nickname everywhere or you have different ones? In that case What's your favorite?

I only use this name on LJ where I share more of myself. On tumblr and imzy I am storiesthatstayed (taken from LOTR and my undying love of it). It does mean quite a lot to me because of how far I have come since I first started using it and I feel quite attached to it now.

Was your nickname here on LJ your one and only choice or you had some other ones in mind? What made you choose this one, in that case?

This I can’t remember. I had another LJ before this one, but I don’t remember what I was called.

I'll be on the lookout for a photo post then! :D Enjoy your time with your camera <3

The story behind your name is not only interesting, it's actually moving! What a beautiful reason! <3 I'm looking into the Norse Mythology now because you're the second one to mention it to me in this thread and I'm very interested to the topic! Thank you! <3
