I used the name ‘redhatted’ because I am the Queen Bee of a Red Hat group that I started 15 years ago. For those who are not aware of the group - it is for women over 50 who live by no rules and wear red and purple ‘even though they don’t go together’. The average age of our group in now late 60’s and we continue to have a good time chatting, going on outings, eating and…drinking wine.

Iberium comes from when I got my first laptop in 2012, I decided to download a game which a lot of my friends were playing at the time. I had to come up with a username there and then. I decided that every letter in my username had to have at least one meaning. So I came up with Iberium after around 30 minutes of thinking.

First meaning:
Ibe = first three letters of my real life name.
r = first letter of my last name
ium = I live in BelgIUM, so to add a finishing touch I decided to add my country in the name too.

Second meaning:
I always LOVED the Roman Empire and their history. I love history. Iberium sounded like a Roman name so I thought that was also a good reason to add the -ium ending. My name even has a whole made up ‘lore’ where I am king Iberium of the land Iberia (not the real Iberia) with Iberian warriors and stuff. That’d be long to explain here though, for now… :wink:

I hope my little explanation makes sense, and that you like it. :slight_smile: Iberium is kind of my second name now, my friends call me Iberium when I don’t respond to my first name after a few times.

P.S.: When Iberium is already taken (happened only once), it becomes Iberoium, adding the second letter of my last name. :slight_smile:

I chose my name to honour my culture - Acadian. Google it sometime, interesting reading. Basically, the Acadians were the first French settlers to come to the new world or Acadia - an area of eastern Canada that is comprised of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, part of the province of Quebec and the state of Maine. They were a peaceful people who fished,farmed and traded with the natives and other villages. Problem was, they were French settles in a land sought after by the English crown. The English and French fought many wars over the new land and in the end, the English prevailed. Forced to sign an allegiance to the English crown many of the Acadians refused, fearing they’d have to take up arms against their French brothers in the event of war. In 1755, English troops began seizing land and deporting the Acadians. Many returned to France, some to England. Many more were re-settled in the southern U.S. and are known as the Cajuns. Still, more returned to their farms once the hostilities had died down and returned to their simple lives. To this day, the language, culture and traditions are alive and well in this area of the world. The songs, stories and names of many families such as Cyr, Thibeau, Boudreau, Landry, LeBlanc remain to carry on proudly. I am proud of my heritage, of my people and of my land. That is why I chose the name Acadian for my I.D. Thanks, or should I say Mercy Beaucoup, and happy pokering.
