    Should Fredwina change her name?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Been thinking about this (see what not riding your bike does to you)
    My "real -life" club tagged me with the nickname "the Shark". While I don't really like that one, I was thinking more along the lines of "la Tiburon", This is Spanish for "the Shark", although i've been informed that Sharks have male genders (i.e. it should "el Tiburon", but that doesn't exactly fit in with Team E)
    So, what do you have to say?

    Fredwina needs to heal and be able to get back on her bike and post more pics! I like your name as it is

    Both Bleeker and I changed our name. If you think you need the mojo of a new stronger (sexier, more exotic, however you see it) name, I think you ought to change it.
    People recognize you from your posts and your avatar. Don't change both at the same time!!

    I think it's okay to be "La Tiburona," I don't actually speak Spanish but I've seen that kind of construction before.

    But I like Fredwina...

    No multiple personality disorder like Mimi and create a new name then log in on the old one. I like Fredwina.

    I don't know, but I made up a haiku for you.


    If peaceful shark asks,
    "Hey! You want a piece of me?"
    it's our Fredwina.


    "fred" is a germanic root that means "peace."

    I don't like it when people change their names. I forget who they are (all except Mimi, who could forget that avatar?!?)

    I like Fredwina, too. It's got that certain jazz....

    I like Fredwina (the name, & the person behind it).

    But, if you want to change it, that's entirely up to you.

    "Fredwina" and long, impressive, unsupported/randonneur-type rides with great photos are indelibly linked in my head.
    "My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved;I have been given much and I have given something in return...Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and an adventure."

    I changed mine, too. You can always revert to Fredwina if you decide you don't like the new one.
