I mean, I understand with some of you…it's very obvious! a-hard-days-night-george-10  There are some pretty cool names out there & I'd love to know the story behind them!

My name is Trudy…my family and friends have always called me "Trude".  When I was a kid, kids at school thought it hilarious to sing to me…"Hey Trude, don't make it bad….." (my family spells it "Trud" tho) …thus my name.  I never minded their singing at school…being a Beatles fan as far back as I can remember :)

I just decided on a stupid nickname that would sound catchy, the only part I succeeded on was stupid. a-hard-days-night-george-10Not much story behind mine though there are some I wish I used. I really wish I stuck a nine somewhere in mine.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

My name actually started out as bj after my first two initials. Then someone on this board (I can't remember who unfortunately) suggested I change it to bjway after one of my favourite songs. I also later realized that bj also stands for something else I didn't really want to be associated with.

  • Paul is my favourite Beatle (obviously)
  • RAM is my favourite McCartney album
  • Long Haired Lady is my favourite song on RAM
  • I am a female, thus I am a "Lady"
  • My hair really is quite long, it falls just a few inches above my waist

There is my over-explanation.  Great idea for a thread!  Some names I am quite curious about.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

I thought long and hard about my name.  I wanted something different, so I thought about what phrase in a Beatles song would NOT be usually chosen, or be the first thing that comes to someone's mind.

Years ago, when I particpated in the "Macca Central" forum (for Paul McCartney fans), I called myself "Scrambled Eggs" (a reference I'm sure I don't need to explain to you Beatlemaniacs…).

I think mine is one of the obvious ones :D

Wish I'd spent more time trying to think of a better one now I've seen some other people's. I just typed the first thing that came to me.

My first name is Gerard Israel so I used my nickname, which is a portmanteau of my first name, Gerell. I was thinking of a Beatle-related name but I wanted to sound distinguished like so… You can find me all over then net as "Gerell96"

Unfortunately, my mind went there at first, but then I was like no he probably means Blue Jay Way

Bjway – I have to say that I immediately knew what your name meant and DIDN'T think of "that" other reference! a-hard-days-night-george-10 LOL

Funny Paper – Nope!  Never got a letter "Dear Trudence"…but that would be cool!

Great hearing everyone's answers and helps me to get to know you better too :)

There's a similar thread buried somewhere in these hallowed pages, but here goes…

Many moons ago, my friends threw a party for my 14th birthday. Long story short, I consumed multiple adult beverages and proceeded to play David Bowie's album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars ad nauseam. From that point on, my nickname has been Zig.

It's been almost 36 years since that event and to this day there are many people who still don't know my real name and know me only as Zig.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

I couldn't find a username and I was thinking "well, it's just me". So I typed in "Me", but then I thought "Hey, I Me Mine! It's a Beatles song AND it means exactly what I want!". That's where my username comes from.

Well, mine is pretty boring: I'm a doctor (PhD) and the Beatles have always been my all-time favorite band. Plus, my first name is Drew, which starts with D and R, so DrBeatle is me trying to be a bit playful with it as well.

I thought of an avatar before thinking of a username so I just chose something that sorta sounded similar but meant something else. Really boring.

Lol I just always thought your actual name IS Zig. Mind is blown.

 

So my username is Linde, but my real name is actually…nah my real name is just Linde. I just tried out if it wasn't taken already (which has been the case in the past on a few other forums) and it wasn't, so I decided to take it. I always hated being spoken to as ''xlindee'' or ''xLindeH_94'' or things like that. Using my own name was just me being simple and keepin' it real yo!

I couldn't think of a Beatles related name I liked, and I liked how that one member always comes up as a guest, so I went with unknown. It's also kind of a reference to a quote by Ronald Rumsfield my dad had on his fridge for the longest time, that always intrigued me as a kid.

"There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know.
But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know we don’t know."
