What's Behind Your Insider User Name?

Tell us what is behind your User name here on Insiders?  Some are their names, others are first initial and last name while others are something that is part of their pas so what's your story?

 

My user name is taken from the fact that I worked at Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH) for 30 plus years and fly small airplanes (flyr) as well as all commercial airline flights we fly on are into and out of IAH. 

 

Next?

    OK, IAHFLYR I'll go next.  Mine is pretty simple; my initials are at the end and the word inside in front of them; implying one can get inside my head and my ideas based on my posts; a scary thought to some I'm sure

    LOL, no more scary than for someone to be inside my head at any time.

    At my first full time job one of my co-workers gave me the nick name "Boy Wonder" since I was good at getting things done quickly.  Also in the 90's I became a fan of Chris O'Donnell's portrayal of Robin who was known to be the Boy Wonder in the Batman movies and series.  So I adopted the screen name "vaboywnder" with va meaning Virginia.

    I don't have a cat so had to come up with my own random name.

    Early in our marriage, we were introduced at a party to a young lady who was, um, three sheets to the wind, and she mis-heard our name. She sort of wrinkled her face, and asked, "What kind of name is Foxglove?!" I answered, "Swedish," and she nodded and stumbled off. And it pretty much stuck thereafter with any of our friends who were in earshot. (And in those days and in that crowd, a little anonymity wasn't a bad idea.)

    Sounds like that crowd the massage might have gone in the wrong direction.
