Original AOL Screen Names

Reader Redux: On Original Screen Names

Though it may not be appropriate for your life now, your first AIM screen name will always be special. The first link to the outside world, these screen names were probably filled with XX and OO and possibly a few celebrity or band names. I asked you to share your firsts, and you were brave enough to answer the call. Check 'em out below!

  • "My first ever AOL screen name was bebe047." — PrincessBee
  • "RockGrrl87. I was 12! I didn't know how obnoxious it was to spell things ridiculously. Ah, youth." — DrGirlfriend
  • "my first was "dreamstar258411." It was so ridiculously long with an unnecessary amount of numbers." — Marshmelly411
  • "littleladykate. My boyfriend when I was 12 made me change it to ktprinces919." — jkatie
