Is their any way to make it where you can change your member name?... I made my name back when Wagon Wheel was my favorite song and I think my name is kinda cheesy... not a demand, just a thought

Your name is not cheesy if you consider the song "Two Sisters" also known as "Twa Sisters".

This song dates back to 15th century Scotloand. The first known broadside that has the lyrics written down is dated in the 1600s.

I'll rattle off a few words for you and perhaps you'll see why your name is cool:

There were two sisters came walking down the stream
Oh the wind and rain
The one behind pushed the other one in
Oh the dreadful wind and rain

Johnny gave the youngest a gay gold ring
Oh the wind and rain
He didn't give the eldest one anything
Oh the dreadful wind and rain

So she pushed her into the river to drown
Oh the wind and rain
Then watched her as she floated down
Oh the dreadful wind and rain

I'd go on but perhaps I have your attention now and you'll dig up the rest on your own.

Your name is a phrase commonly used in lots of folk tunes. . . .and largely part of an ancient murder ballad.

I think its cool.

Maybe we could have an alias, like, under location.. Alias: Henry Hudson or something? and maybe be able to interchange that as your nickname? I dunno... something like that...

So what's the conclusion? Is there a way to change your name, because mine is terrible. It's supposed to be from 'Can't get right Blues' but Im not even totally sure that's what he says.

Funny you mention that... was having a drink after work with friends and had a toothpick tossed at me with a 'chico!' for punctuation. Fair 'nuff, was a girl that threw it, but she had dark curly hair... almost a gheri (sp?) curl!
