What's in a name?
An interesting topic on the artfire forums about where your username came from. I thought I'd share my story, and I'd love to know about yours too!
There are so many interesting screen names online, and I wanted to create my own. This was before I started my etsy, so basically I wanted something clever for my various online presences. I ensued the help of my boyfriend, his was TheRiskyShift, which I thought was pretty cool. We had a brainstorming session, and I finally came up with ajoeynamedroo. It seemed to pop into my head out of nowhere (say divine intervention?)
I think that my name fits me and my creations well.
1. The kangaroo is my favorite animal because I love that it's so hoppy and energetic.
2. My sister and I watched Winnie the Pooh as children, and I really like the artwork of old pooh.
3. Finally, the a boy named Sue reference, was simply me trying to be clever!
All together, I hope that my name reflects my artwork; energetic, classic, whimsical, and clever!
Where did your name come from?
