When I first joined the old SANParks forum, I called myself by my two names but removed the e at the end for simplicity. - saladel. Then that forum disappeared and it took me a bit of time to wake up to the fact that a new one existed. I thought it would be nice to have a change so I chose salamanda. The spelling is deliberate, it somehow seemed mre user-friendly, and I didn't want to be thought of as a lizard . . . . :lol: (Unfortunately some people think I cant spell and still think of me as a lizard . . . . :roll: )

Oh dear, Salamanda, you are so not Lizard.

You are just not reptile.

You are poet.

Isn't salamanda the plural of lizard in Latin? :twisted:

When registering on the forum I tried a few names but thay had already been used, my SO shouted from the lounge that my name should be about something that I love doing, and that is camping so therefore the name tent dweller

How did you choose your forum name?

Unread post by hilda » Mon Oct 15, 2012 6:50 am

While reading trip reports and other topics on the forum, one often comes across strange and/or unusual forum names. That made me wonder if it has a special meaning, or what is the story behind the name.

Maybe I wasn’t clever enough to choose a suitable forum name, that’s why I have decided to use my real name. :tongue:

If you take 24 378 registered members on the forum, some active, some not, but everyone has a different name, that is quite a lot of names. What made you choose your name? :hmz:
