A lot of us have screen names that reveal our real first names, but a lot of us don't. Anyone feel like guessing the first names of CR members? If people are struggling, give them a hint. If you already know from off-list communication, don't spoil the secret.

I'll go first. Does anyone think they can guess my given name?

Cindy -- feeling like she can definitely guess correctly for Bernard, Kenny, Nina, Jodi, Larry, Matt and Jolly smile

I'll better the requirements by naming first and last names: Brendan= Brendan Kinsella; Thracozaag= Koji Attwood.

I'm quite cheap...

Is this the coffee room, btw? If so, no one here actually listens to me so chances are I won't get a reply to this but...take a guess at my name! I think only 2 people on the 3 forums which I visit know it...

Let's see, Cindy. I have no idea. Sophia? Does it start with a letter in the first half of the alphabet, or the last?

Jodi isn't my first name. It's not even my middle name. It's a nickname...

Cindy, my guess for you is Susan. (I'd previously assumed your name was "Cindy").

Goldberg: Matthew?

Jodi: Joanne?

You can find my first name in some of my posts.

Hmmm, let me get my psych(ot)ic powers going here.... I am sensing that someone here is named Kathleen.

Oh, and a hint.... Matt is not my given name.

Hmm, no, but somewhat close...well, not really. It doesn't start with an M and it's only 4 letters long.

Ballyhoo...I'm embarrassed to say, I'm not sure of your gender, but my guess is male. If so, your name is either John or Fred; if female, it's Sally or Kirsten! (...)

Right.

KlavierBauer, believe it or not, your name is......Joseph!

Goldberg: John?

Yes, I'm male. I sort of regret my choice of username now; I think it's a bit silly. I'm not John or Fred.

Oh, wow. What chaos we have already!

OK, here's a hint. My given name starts with a "C."

Goldberg, I'll play the odds and guess that you are really "Michael."

Jodi, I'm thinking, is "Joy."

Matt, I'm stubborn, so I'll stick with "Matthew."

KB, you're "Chris," right? smile

Ballyhoo, I didn't want to go search and find your name -- where's the fun in that? -- so . . . what's a good name for an Australian dude? I'll go with "Ian."

What do I win? smile

Cindy -- who would love to be named "Sophia" because it is so mysterious

[edit -- no, not Christine]

OK, another hint.

My first name starts with a "C" and has three syllables. It has seven letters.

Ballyhoo, this is *hard!* I'm trying to come up with more common Aussie names, and I can't get past "Kangaroo Jack." wink

Um, Isaac?

Nope, Cindy (oh, and we all really know your name is...Caroline), though Michael is oddly closer than Matthew. Remember my rules: 4 letters, does NOT begin with an M...or a J, for that matter, Ballyhoo (aka David).

Nope, nope...Rube? That's...a little strange...but kind of cool in its own way I guess.

Boy, I've really thrown you guys, huh?

OK, my first name ends in an "A."

Ballyhoo, ya gotta help me out here! I need a hint, badly!

Goldberg, I will guess "Bill." Bill Goldberg. If that's not your name, well then gosh darnit, it should be.

Goldberg, sorry I missed that. Not David.

How about Dean?

Cindy: I've already given you a big hint!

You got it, Chelsea! Around Houston I'm known as "Wild Buffalo Bill Goldberg".......

ok, no. Goldberg is in no way related to any of my names. I'd give you one of the letters but I think it'd be too easy from there.

Hmm, superb thought pattern there, Steve! But unfortunately, incorrect. We'll rule out the letter C.

No, not Chelsea. You guys are thinking a little too hard on this one.

Wow! I got Bill. Awesome! Score one for Cindy!

Cindy -- who scrolled up looking for what "Chelsea" guessed until she realized Goldberg was talking to her
