naming thoughts?

Any thoughts on me retaking the name shabby? Screw what people think... It's a unique identifier, which I've missed on several occasions. "It's Chris" still sounds wrong coming out of my mouth when I'm on the phone, and...

Bleah. Bonanza of babbletude! Definitely bedtime.

well for some of us we're still struggling with "shabby-I-mean-Chris"... there are just soooooo many Chrisses.

I guess I don't know you well enough.. I wasn't aware you had dropped Shabby. Personally, I think it's a pretty cool nick. :)

I approve
I have never thought of Shabby as a derogative adjective of you. I have always thought of it as your name. I like it because it's uniquely you, and that means that it conjures up warm, friendly feelings in me.

you are shabby. Shabby is you. You got the nickname based on how similar it is to your name, not based on the fact that you're shabby. If you insist on dropping shabby, you should insist on everyone calling you "christopher robin" because at least that's unique. Or maybe "cr" but I still think shabby is you.
