I chosed this name by a city in the Ukraine, which is known since ages as the "capital of black humour". As i love black humor (like Monty Python) a lot, so this was the first reason. The second was that Odessa also was one of the first melting pots in the world, where people from all nations and religions lived together in peace and with respect - that again is also something, the Cartwrights has as their ideology. And last but not least the grandfather of my mother came from Russia, and so - Odessa, since over 12 years of internet-presence now.

Loved reading all of the meanings behind your names! My nick is bookworm18 because I do love to read, I won't read just anything but when I find something good the pages start turning and it's difficult to stop! The 18 part is that's always been my favorite number.

Mine came from the fact that Adam and Joe are my favorite Cartwrights, the sexiest Cartwrights, and they have my favorite relationship in the Cartwright family.

Always fun to read how the folks came up with their names... :very happy

When I was joining my first Bonanza group (a few years back) .... I just decided that I would use Girl from Wolf Lake, where I live.. so I used girlfromwl! Simple and easy for this old brain to remember.

My nick name, or as my 3-year-old niece calls it - a "knick-knack name", is simply my initials including my maiden name.

My nick is the name of a fictional city in the novel I always wanted to write and never got around to do it.
