    forum names

    here on the aruba.com/forum you were asked to create a username.

    some are obvious........
    Andrea (my given name)
    Walt (his name)
    but then there are many many others where the names are not the person's given name. I do not think that Pegmeister's parents brought her to the baptismal font or to the river and had her baptized as "Pegmeister"....but I have been wrong before.

    what is your username?
    does it have a special meaning? a special Aruba meaning?
    is it a gender neutral name?

    so, what is the story of your username?

    Mine isn't very interesting but has meaning to me. Given name + maiden name initial + softball number which also happens to be my dad's birthday. After I was born my dad always wore my birthday as his number for any sport, so as soon as I was old enough to pick, I started wearing his.

    For some unknown reason, one of the guys I used to work with always had some pet name for me. After he started renaming me others followed along. Other versions included; the Pegster; Pegorino; Pegman and just PegPeg. Not sure why I picked the Pegmeister from the list.

    Should mention also that my real name is Marguerite.

    My name is Chris and winter is my favorite season. Both of my parents were avid skiers and I have been skiing since I was 5 years old - it is my favorite sport! Unlike most forum members, I LOVE the snow - the more the better!!! I met my husband in a ski club and we are both on the ski slopes together for a minimum of 25 days each year. The very first vacation I take each year is always to a ski resort and I've skied all across the USA and in France, Italy and Switzerland. And only after all the snow melts each season, is when I turn my focus to my second favorite activity of going to the beach and snorkeling in the beautiful waters of Aruba. You'll never find me in Aruba between the months of December through April and my favorite months on the island are September and October.

    I actually thought that Pegmeister was her actual name and appropriate. She is the "Meister" of the casinos

    Mine is very uncreative. It's just my name.
