Mine is a reference to one of my favourite jokes on the TV series "Scrubs" 😄
Mine is a Harry Potter reference - the hippogriff named buckbeak was sentenced to death and escaped and was renamed witherwings so that people wouldn't know he was the outlaw buckbeak.
Yeeeeears ago I used a different name in here, before I had kids or was pregnant, and I wanted to separate myself from that user profile so I created witherwings.
ETA - not that I was doing anything "wrong" before, but just had some things i had written which were very personal and I wanted to lose some of my anonymity once I got pregnant (and joined DIGs) without people reading about some of the more personal stuff from before
I started life here as joshcamgrandma, because I had only two grandsons. but the grandchildren increased, so the mods suggested, Supergranny. I now have six grandchildren, so the name works. marie.
Twofold reasoning: I'm a petite person (I'm the person whose kids will be taller than them by year 6), and a dancer. Well, I was a dancer. I've had too many injuries since signing up, can't dance at the moment.
And the second was that one of the dances I'd done as a teenager that I really enjoyed was to tiny dancer. I'd been trying to remember it, and going over and over it in the weeks before I signed up. It was just in my head.
Its just my pet name
Maybe I should change my name to be more accurate of how I am these days- Little Miss Crankypants
