How did I come from?

Ever wonder how the nickname of ladyviral came to me?

The nickname ladyviral came about during the days of mIRC. That was like more than a decade ago!
It all started when my love for Vipers (it was a car! Not the person!)
and decided to called myself “ViperGal”. But during that time, there was this guy named V|pEr (or something) and everyone kept asking me “Are you Viper’s girlfriend?” Er… Who is Viper?

Even at some point of time, Mr. Viper and I actually was like “ok since everyone said we are an item, might as well just say yes to stop them from asking hahaha!”

But eventually then I got bored after. I wanted a name that starts with V. I went from Vain, to Veins, to Vin and was like… eh? Sounds uncool!
So then I went for Virus and to make me known as a female I added Lady in front of Virus.

But it was still uncool. It was too common, too bland. I actually flipped the dictionary back then to see what other meaning was there for Virus and I found Viral. Sounds special, unique and no body would know about it (back then of course)! I got asked a lot “What does Viral means?” I replied “Something that infects you” :p

So that is how the nickname ladyviral came about. Lame right? I know… (-_-);;

How did your nickname come about?

oh i can't remember what my nickname for all those chatroom was, but what i remember was that those nicknames just came very spontaneous and not well planned i.e. very uncool names!! haha~~ :D

Cool Viper car..haha. nice name LadyViral. Bananaz? Yellow skin white thoughts due to education in English school since Std 1, dunno Chinese words.

really not an easy job to create or select a cool name that suits you, easy to remember and unique.. i like ladyviral, it's cool enough, so you don't need another one, haha~~ :D

suituapui said...

I was comnputer illiterate...and somebody registered a hotmail address for me. He wanted to use puipuisuisui (fat and good looking) but the name was taken, believe it or not. So he used suituapui instead...and then the account got hacked and I could not do anything as I did not know what details he keyed in when registering. So that email address is still there - redundant now...can't even open it to check whether there are any emails or not.

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Lady Viral, I have driven many kinds of sports cars, but one car that frightened the heck out of me is the Dodge Viper.
I had the use of one.....I returned it within the hour!
Holy Smoke! The 1st gear can hit 60mph!....and your neck feels like being pulled off.

2nd gear? This is a license suspension, 6 weeks jail time speed! And the sound it makes, like a Boeing 747 landing behind you.
No thanks! Too scary......

Your callsign is nice, unusual, but interesting.
Have fun and keep a song in your heart.
Lee.

ladyviral said...

Uncle Lee : Omg really?! I never got chance to driven any sports car before... oh wow... i give anything to try that now! XD

Thanks for liking my callsign :D. I am glad so many people like it ^_^.

sriyany said...

That's a cool way of picking out a nickname.

My ICQ nick used to be 'scorpgal' (highly unimaginative) but it stuck for a while then it was the lame 'Yanilicioux'.

And now (finally) I've left it at my name!

Dora said...

Hi Ladyviral, didn't stop-by here for some time. Ok now I know how's you name came from. For me, it's simply because I love Dora the Explorer :-)

ladyviral said...

sriyany : haha! it was really just a way of lame-ness to be "cool" :p but to be honest, not like it is much cool haha!

What does sriyany means? :)

Oh thanks for dropping by my blog. i like your blogging style, i am going to follow it ^_^.

ladyviral said...

dora : Hi Dora! Yea it has been some time. I didn't drop by your blog too.. sincerely apologize.

Been too busy and just recently I picked up back my blogging which of course is still not as active as before =3.

cleffairy said...

Mine...is my in game character in Maplestory. 'cleffairy'. But if you wanna know where I really got that, I'd say it's from pokemon, a pokemon called 'clefairy'. LOL!

Twilight Man said...

I started blogging cos my friends wanted to hear my ghost stories, so twilight zone was born. Then I got nicknamed Grandma instead due to my crappy foul mouthed earlier on. I decided to be known as Twilight Man now. Do I look like my name?
I like your name. Sounds so glamorous!

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Your nickname not foongpc? :p But Panda is good! haha

ladyviral said...

cleffairy : Ooooh guess that is why your avatar is a maplestory character ^_^. When I play games, my game characters always changes name :3

ladyviral said...

Twilight Man : Ghost stories? Hmmm... you blogged about them last time? I would definitely want to read them too. Oh yea your avatar sure look mysterious :p.

Thanks for the compliment on my nickname :). Glamorous huh? haha!

Quay Po Cooks said...

My nickname Quay Po was given to me by my family cos my hubby isba Quay Lo. The rightb spelling should be Guay Po but I did not like the "G". I use "Q" cos it looks more complete. The correct pronunciation is for Quay is Key not Guay. My Quay Lo thinks it is good cos he said that I am the key to his heart. Gr
