Highwall

One word Alias

Recommended Posts

When joining SASS years ago I found it challenging to come up with an alias that wasn't already taken. On my third or fourth try I was lucky enough to get "Highwall" since that is my favorite weapon.

I don't know how many members are registered with one word alias names but would find it interesting to see them. Please take no offense to those of you with 2 or 3 or multiple alias names. Many are very topical, historical and ingenious if not just plain fun!

Mine alias is actually my nickname from decades ago. Well, it's actually part of it, but we won't get into that. I'm old and my ears are hammered, so I figured I'd stick with something familiar, otherwise people would get the same reaction I would get from my dog when I call it.

 

I'm thinking of changing it to "Echo" though. Every time people ask me what my alias is, I tell them and they say "huh?" and I have to say it again. :D

Actually mine is a section of the town that I was brought up in.  The only people on the earth who will recognize it are people from that town.

My grandmother's maiden name. 

Also, there was a B Western with a scout named Duffield. 

In one scene he was riding back to town and the hero said: "Here comes Duffield!"

Thus my alias:

 

Duffield

Rattler, Its the name that my great uncle went by in the late 1800's.

Marauder

We moved around a lot.

 

It was originally The Morrill Marauder

Sort of a pun since I worked in churches a lot (moral), came from a small town of Morrill, and moved around causing people to think - therefore "causing trouble."

 

Then changed it just Marauder since it was still available.

I started out as 'Widowmaker Hill'.

 

About 3-4 years later, Cherokee Big Dog (KY) started calling me Widder.  

And others were referring to my Marlin mod as a 'Widdermatic'.   Honestly, I didn't name it but rather

some 1873 shooters with the Ocoee Rangers started calling my Marlin that name.

 

The name 'Widder' stuck.   So I officially changed my SASS alias to 'Widder'.

 

And that's how that came about.

 

..........Widder

My alias is derived from a nickname bestowed upon me by my hockey playing brethren.

I was Cowboy Rance for many years because Rance wasn't available..

my Dads name was Rance and my Grandpa picked his name out 

from an old western comic book..

I checked on the one name alias quite often..

On one call it was available..

I got  it about 3-4 years ago..

 

Rance;)

I wanted a one-word name when I joined. I was surprised that Houston was available. That name works for me on so many levels, from sports to Texas history. My gun cart looks like an oil derrick too. :)

When I started my custom leather business, I didn't want to limit what I made to just leather goods.  I had followed a number of trails, sometimes riding horses. but more often riding a blue truck, as well as my own Personally Owned Vehicle (POV).  My wife suggested "Trailrider Products" for the business.  When I joined SASS, I naturally chose "Trailrider" as my alias, to tie in with my business as well as some of my history.

Well, I was gunna be Hoss because that's been my nickname for decades.  But there were already a half dozen hoss's in SASS, so I went another direction. 

 

Tune in next week and I'll tell you the name I finally settled on.

My wife had some suggestions. 

My ex-wife really had some suggestions.

 

 

I didn't think anyone would find them very appropriate.

If you know Flash you know he's telling the truth.  When he says "always" that's literally true for Flash ;)

Assassin and Rattler just easy way around them two word names.:)

 

Wy, sort of like where I'm from Bogata.  If someone can pronounce and/or spell it, they must be from there or know someone who is. Pronounced ba'go'ta. spelling is a story itself.
