It came from my first three horses: Andy's Delight, Mr Ebony's Delight, and Just Delighted. The first two were coincidences - Andy came with the name, and, when we looked at Boogie's papers, he was a Delighted too. Just Delighted got renamed to that, because I didn't like the name "Billy" for a big, buff QH. My fat mare's first baby will have a Delighted in there somewhere - maybe Delighted's Lift Me Up, or something.. I'll have to wait and see.
Kismet is my horse's name [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
One day I made a screen name using Kismet and ever since, every user name has been Kismet.
Then when I came to buying a website address, Kismet was not avaliable.
So then we used one of Kismet's nicknames, Kismerella.
Now I have a few user names with Kismerella.
Serengeti, i'm not even going to comment, that's his name and the 36 came from my email address and where that 36 came from was from teh 336 in the screename before that. Where that came from, no one knows.

These are awesome, they're really cool to read [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
ErinB - those are some funny stories, and eerily similar to the way my sister and I interacted (and still do).
Rubs not Pats - that is SOOO cute! A filly at my camp a few years back would, like, harrass you until you gave her a good rub, so she got plenty of nicknames, hehe.
I use emmapony for basically everything, my AOL is Emmapony84, my diaryland is emmapony... etc. My boyfriend uses 'hoison' because his last name is Herson but everyone but me calls him Hoison. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

You will see me riding the real "BUMPKIN", she was named for the ponies in the Hobbit, I think there was a Lumpkin, Bumpkin and ? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Not a Country Bumpkin [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
Her show name was Pantomine and her racing name was Fallacy's Hope (Pan Man x Miss Fallacy).
I prob should change my name to "Elliot" since he is my replacement for Bumpkin after pining for her for 20 years...but I have been Bumpkin on here forever it seems. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Here is part of the Poem in the Hobbit...
Tom Bombadil's songs
Hey! now! Come hoy now! Whither do you wander?
Up, down, near or far, here, there or yonder?
Sharp-ears, Wise-nose, Swish-tail and Bumpkin,
White-socks my little lad, and old Fatty Lumpkin?

I guess mine is pretty much self-explanatory (and boring!) I can only say that I'd never spent any time on a BB before and I didn't lurk for very long here before beginning to post, so I had no idea that people used names not their own.
If I had it to do over again, I'd probably choose something more fun or exciting. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
Mine's pretty easy... Chief's show name is Simply Irresistable. I would have used the name Chief, but there was already a Chef on the boards, and that would have confused me too much. Though sometimes, I do with I had chosen something a little shorter or easier to spell... oh well [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Mine is neat but no-one realizes it. Boss Hoss is ancient hep-cat daddy-O teenager slang for a fast, cool car.
Also a tounge-in-cheek reference to "Alpha Mare".
And it's stayed because it's the first out of a bazillion that 'worked' after COTH had a huge name-scrambling session a few years ago!!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
