Hi friends,

I have my email account with a user name sri1025 which I don't really like it. I wanted to have srikanths@g.c (Gmail.com) but I was too late for Gmail to get that ID. My official name is Srikanth Srinivasaraghavan and I must be crazy to choose srikanthsrinivasaraghavan@g.c even though it is still available (Hey, don't take that now to screw me).

I want to choose a new E-Mail ID which must be:
  • Short (max of 10 or 12 chars)
  • No underscores
  • No numbers
  • Readable
  • Can be crazy yet formal (I don't want to have crazysrikanth though )
  • Cool or Hot yet not vulgar


  • Can you guys suggest me? Thanks a lot!

    Srikanth (sri1025@javaranch or am I?)

    How about a nickname or some word play with the phonemes in your name. Something that comes to mind:
    Ragtime@g.c.

    When I was in Korea way back in my military days, I got the nickname Slatmandoo because I used to hit the mandoo stands on the side of the road. For those not in the know, mandoo is kind of like Chinese wanton or a stuffed dumpling. It was especially good in the freezing days of February when you could warm up for a few minutes next to the fryer.

    Aloha,
    Doug

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks so much for the suggestions. But this is what I did, I own a domain called srikanths.net, I am using it with Google Apps. And I also have a new account called srikanths@<mydomain.net>

    I am migrating my e-mails from my current e-mail address to this new one. I read that it may take a while for Gmail to fetch everything from my old account. Once I am done with it, I will be switching to this account.

    I also learned that I can search my own messages from my previous Gmail account in the current Gmail account like "from:me" and "to:me".

    A happy Srikanth
