Any opposition to geo-name changes

Hi all.

I'm seriously considering changing my geocaching name. The reason being, some people see it as pessimistic and I'm currently working on becoming more optimistic. I saw the name as opportunistic - do it now, take the opportunity in front of you now because t might not come up again, or "live now like there's no tomorrow". Before I took on No_Tomorrow as my name it was Mayb3Tomorrow (or spelt something like that) which was how I lived and I wanted to change that. I guess I saw it as being like buying clothes one size too small - an incentive to change to fit it.

Of course I then went on to make a YouTube channel, did a few podcast episodes, and met a lot of awesome people who know me by that name so have felt it might be wrong to change it again. Neither the YouTube channel or podcast are important to me now though, but fellow geocachers I care about.

So I'm looking for the community's feedback on:
- do you think I should keep No_Tomorrow as my cacher name,
and
- has anyone got any name suggestions? Nothing is too silly or crazy and a good laugh is much appreciated.

Thanks.
Linda

Everyone plays their own way. Play your own game and don't worry about what others think. Keep your name. It means something to you and it doesn't matter if anyone want's to read something into it.

It is, of course, your decision.

I like No_Tomorrow. I"m used to it, anyway, but it sounds like a challenge. Something you yell at the world, like the Doctor shouts, "Geronimo!!"

And you may have guessed from my user name, but clever witty ideas is not my forte. Sorry.

Linda,

I agree with Wazza that if it means something to you (and it seems to reflect your attitude to life) then keep it.

Personally I like your user name but user names are funny things. There are times when someone has come up to me and said "why Black Bunny" and it can provide the opportunity to break the ice and have a good conversation.

Either way (if you choose to change it or keep it) we hope to catch up with you when we can hit the road again when lockdown lifts.

I've always interpreted your name in that way - live like there's no tomorrow..... so definitely in a positive light.
So I'd vote to keep it - people know and respect that name.
Of course it is your choice, nobody has any right to oppose a name change.....

I've always thought mine was pretty dull, but I can be dull at times, so maybe the shoe fits! :)
But then the kids were thrilled to have their own accounts just like mine, so that was cool..... I like to think I live/cache like the kids are growing up too fast, and might not want to go caching with their Dad forever....

Thanks everyone for your responses. I also asked on instagram and pretty much got the same response.

The name will not change... for now anyway. :)
