Since I got into The Beatles I wanted to have this cool Beatles nickname. My name is Eva, so I wanted to combine that with something Beatles related. 

First I thought of Bevatle, but you couldn't really see it was Beatles related. So, then I thought of Beatleva, as it is a perfect combination, well not perfect, but anyway :D

 

Yes, not a very exciting story...

Mr. Moonlight is a neighbour of mine. He has mistreated pitbulls and smells of weed.

True story.

*SOMEONE* (you a-hard-days-night-ringo-15 know who you are a-hard-days-night-john-6heartapple01 & thank you) gave me a chance to pick a good Beatley name. I love the sound of John sucking air on Girl so I went with what he sings right before that sound. Ahhh girl...

To "AhhhGirl" -- you could have tried a nickname spelled "FFFFFSSSSSSSSS" …

That's a good spelling for it, FP. It would have been yet another thing I did that made people go hummm if I hadn't told them what it was. 

JohnSuckingAir just didn't seem like a good nickname.

That's how I got my nickname.

However, this post is about the nicknames for my nickname. I wish I could remember who called me AG first. I think it was mmm, but I'm not sure. I really like it.

I also like being called Ahhh. @WETSRoosa and @Funny Paper both used it recently. It's like being on a first name basis.

I believe we indeed do have a thread for this already.

Anyway, I chose Linde, because...behold yourself..it is my name.

I think your name is quite beautiful, Linde. Is it pronounced in Dutch the way I'm thinking of it being pronounced : "Lind" would rhyme with "send" and then a long "e." May be a no-brainer question, but, hey, thought I'd ask.

 

Haha of course you can ask. I'm happy to explain it to people, hate it when they pronounce my name wrong. 

Lind doesn't rhyme with send, but it does rhyme with wind, for example. Lin sounds exactly the same as the name Lynn. The E at the end isn't long. If it was, I'd be called Lindie. The E is sorta pronounced like the u in bun, for example. So I guess it sounds like Lynnduhh.

Kind of like Paul's 1st wife's name - Linda - never thought about it but it does sound like "duhh."

 

I think the 'e' in Linde is what linquists call the schwa sound - it's the upside-down lower case 'e' in English (maybe other) dictionary pronunciations.  The sound is something like "uh" or "ah", like in "the" spoken with a "short e" (not really a short e, but definitely not a long e).

EDIT: Something on topic a-hard-days-night-george-10  When I saw that most people here had Beatley names, I picked Matt because that long word association last line of Dig It is one of my favorite Beatles passages (and, it wasn't already taken!).

Half of what I say is meaningless...

Lots of people pick song names from the albums, so I took from a title of a spoken bit from the 1st Live At The BBC album.  I like the spoken bits.  This one has elements of my real name in it, so it works for me.  I figured no one else had it. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I was strapped for time and wanted to pick a user name. I figured somebody picked "Norwegian Wood" so I picked "thisbirdhasflown".

I'm not fond of my name as it is, so I'm thinking of using a nickname in the small chance of ever releasing an album, like Syd Barrett did. During his Floyd days, he looked really, really cool. Hell, even his nickname was.

What's so cool about the name Syd? Not that I think Roger is better, but just asking. Did you come up with a nickname for yourself yet? I'm curious what you'll come up with

No. I am American (turn left at Greenland) but I could see why you think that I'm Norwegian or A Spaniard in the Woodworks! a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-john-6
