Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

My husband just proposed when I joined the forum. Before he did, we used to make fun of him with this song of Nil Karaibrahimgil - Pirlanta (means Diamond in Turkish)



I took my name from her.

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

I have no imagination whatsoever!
Plus, I just found out that I should've been "gone" from EF a while ago:

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

Snoopy 'cos most places I've worked they've ended up calling me snoops, snoopy etc as it almost rhymes with me real moniker...

and 1664 comes from Kronenburg (seems obvious now, doesn't it?? ), although credit where it's due, my little brother did it first with his name and made me chuckle so much I just had to rip him off - big brother privileges!

Snoops...

You realize that now you have to spill the beans...
I was 16 .... the quite estute one at school..........basically at a works dooo I was perhaps not as innocent as some people thought.

Got into a fight over a guy at a night club, punched my best friend and slept with the guy......(Not proud)

Friends called me a darkhorse ever since...never trust the quiet ones they said lol

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

I was named after the place where I was conceived (long before Posh and Beck had the idea).



Unfortunately, my parents were spiritualists
