    Explain Your Username

    People have all sorts of weird and wonderful usernames on the forum. Some seem easy to explain; others less so. Here's a chance to explain why you chose your name and where it comes from!


    So me first! Well, when @lavieenrose introduced me to the world of Eurovision, the very first song I loved that he showed me was Kati Wolf's "What About My Dreams?" So... I took her surname and latinised it (the obvious choice for me!) and hence Lupus!

    Now it's your turn!

    My name is Cristian Scarpone!

    Scarpone in Italian means "Big Shoe" and so... KRI + SHOE(S) = Krishoes!

    Re: Explain Your Username

    When I was like 16, there was a guy who made an anglicism out of his first and his surname. It was so ridiculous that I decided to create such a nickname for myself and now I cannot get off it

    My name's neither Jamie nor James and also my surname isn't Brown. It isn't even Braun/Brauns, which would be the direct translation into german. There's just the theory that Brauns was once the origin of my real name
