    New contest: pick my new user name!

    Story time: Back when I read comics, I was a big fan of Black Canary. As such, when I entered the world of Internet forums, I often used "Black Canary" or "Dinah Lance" as my screen name. However, particularly on fandom-oriented sites, those names were often already taken. I got in the habit of using "Siu Jerk Jai," a nickname sometimes used for Black Canary in the comics.

    Cut to 4+ years ago when I began pin collecting. (So long? Schnickes.) When I signed up for PinPics, I thought of using something like "Dinah," but that seemed strange since I had no intention of collecting Alice pins. I went with my old stand-by Internet name. It wasn't until later that I decided to focus my collecting on Mulan. It wasn't until later still that it dawned on me that the combination of a Cantonese user name and a Mulan collection was potentially misleading since I am not of Chinese descent. Only recently has it occurred to me that someone out there might think I'm trying purposefully to be misleading (which I would not want to do).

    So it's time for a change! I don't think it would be too confusing. Y'all know me, and I'll likely leave my avatar as is.

    What should my new name be? I have no idea! That's where you come in.

    Feel free to suggest whatever you like, but I'm more likely to pick a name that I feel some connection to. I don't read comics anymore, but Black Canary has been a part of my Internet identity for a long time so I'd be open to that. A Mulan-related name is obviously a possibility. Or I could follow in the footsteps of our illustrious Aidan Shepard and use my favorite BioWare name (mine would be July Shepard or Blythe Hawke--I kind of have a bird thing going, don't I?). I'd also be very down with a screen name related to my real name (which is Kim to those who don't already know). Just maybe not anything related to Kim Possible because then I'd have to start ANOTHER new collection. (Unless it's a really good name. And a good collection. Dang it.)

    Puns are absolutely encouraged.

    This contest will last until approximately whenever I feel like it! If I pick your name, I will send you something. My name change will be effective whenever I have a new name and our super-busy mods/admins have time to do it for me.

    So... yeah. Have at it!

    ETA: Enter as many times as you want. It's all good.

    I've been thinking of changing my name too, and also because it gives people "the wrong idea!" ("Sora" is my actual nickname, has been for many years... But when I joined the Disney fandom, everyone began assuming I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan... In reality I don't play any video games at all.) Sorry, I don't have any suggestions - Just thought it was a funny coincidence!

    P.S. I like "LittleBird."

    Is your real name Sue?

    You can be "MuSue."

    The storyline that nickname came from took place in Hong Kong and said it was Cantonese. But... you know... it was an American comic book. So there's a very real possibility that's not the slightest bit accurate.

    Yeah, exactly. A few different parts of my interests overlapped in a way that began to seem misleading at best and, in my case, like I was trying to co-opt a different culture at worst.

    What about Cri-Kee? The adorable little guy is already stamped on your lovely letters! (You could even expand it and have Cri-Kee Canary for some fun alliteration!)

    most Japanese words have a consonant vowel pattern. It can start with a vowel. The writing systems is organized by consonants and vowel endings (five individual "letters" for wa, we, wi, wo, wu).

    I've definitely considered Little Bird. I like the idea of using some form of Canary as well (as opposed to using Black Canary, which I got stuck on).

    I've thought about a similar Kim thing as well. kImagination?

    You can request that one of the admins change it for you. Obviously they have a lot of other things to do that are more important, but I plan to make a polite request. It'll be up to them when/if they can get to it.

    This is dumb, but I'm going to throw it out there to say I participated (I get a medal for showing up, right? :P):

    Adversity Bloom

    It sounds like a superhero name but pays homage to Mulan (the flower that blooms in adversity ... the most rare and beautiful of all).

    Or just call yourself Ann's Favorite and be done with it.
