  • The Name Question?

    How did you all come up with your business names and screen names?

    I am curious. My favorite screen names are CrazyDaycareLady, Dilley Beans & Monkey Toes?

    When I first came to this site I just knew NannyDe’s first name was Deanne or Denise. I figured she was or use to be a nanny. A year later I learned her name is not Deanne or Denise...

    I've been using my business name for over 10 years now; My childcare home is called Tir na n”g. It means Land of the Young in Gaelic and it fits because I work with littles ( There is an Irish Farie Myth about it). My screen names is easy too.... LysesKids, me & my littles.

      One of my best friends in high school used to call me Melilley (pronounced like Muh-lily) as my nickname and it just stuck. I use it for many things.

      The name of my daycare is just M's Family Daycare, after my real name, boring I know.. I chose that because I was so excited to get business cards when I opened, that I didn't take the time to check out what I had to do to have a legal name so I just stuck with that.

          My screen name is because of birthdate. (Halloween ~ 10/31)

          I have also always had a black cat.


          As for my business name.... it's changed on and off over the years.

          Now it's just "(my name)'s Kids. It was accidental....

          Many of my families were/are friends outside of care and during social settings when asked where their kids go, the answer was always "Oh mine are MYNAME's kids" so it just kind of stuck.

              My screen name happen within 30 seconds. I don’t use my government name on the internet.

              Kids are my work. I refer to work as the grind. So I am KidGrind.

              Annalee would you believe I was going to name my son Panther Amadeus?

                  When my sister and I were younger, she wanted to name her first son (if she had one) Pony Boy (from the movie The Outsiders). Needless to say, that's not her sons name.

                    My business name was Just Like Home Family Child Care because I did at home care, nothing really special.

                    My screen name is mom of 4 because I have 4 kids that I raise. So again, nothing special.

                      You just made me scream out loud in laughter during nap time!

                      I have a son. His name is not Panther Amadeus. My husband, family, friends and strangers gave Panther Amadeus the:dislike::dislike::dislike::dislike:.

                          We should have done a "guess why I chose this screen name" thread.... ::

                          Would've given some funny/scary insight as to what others think when they read our screen names without knowing the why behind them.
