    I don't have a name suggestion, but I do have an observation.

    The very best trailnames not only encompass what you like and who you are but also kind of poke fun at a mistake you made or a shortcoming you have. They can be a reminder to keep your humility. Our flaws are a big part of what makes people interesting. Just a thought.

    Banana Breath has my vote. But my avatar is a dog nose. So consider the source.

    Monkeys eat a lot of bananas. My favorite monkey? Lancelot Link. Trail name done! You're welcome.

    Hack,
    Hope you come up with something. On the hike out from the MAHHA hang out, IIRC, you ended up carrying your pack, a ridgerest pad, a sling bag, a cartoon backpack and you had it topped off with Kiwi on your shoulders, complete with his CamelBack which appeared to be full. Maybe we should call you Kiwi Carrier.

    Don't rush it. You will get one on the trail that fits better than any we can come up with here.

    Example: My friend gave our one friend the trail name ham-hock when we started a hike due to him packing on some weight from the last time he saw him. Naturally he didn't care to much for it so we said we would figure a new one out before the hike was done. Sitting around the fire the last night out, everyone was eating and no talking was going on when he starts spewing all these facts about wolves. I put my food down, looked across the fire to my other friend and said " Cliff"
    Everyone knew what I ment but said friend who got the name, he's 10 years younger than me and never watched Cheers. Everyone was busting up and we just told him to ask his wife.

    My other friend got named Bonk because he bonked on the top of bear mountain. His wife is Bear bait because It's always that time when we go.

    There is no rush, when people ask what your trail name is, just say you don't have one yet.

    I agree with the above...also, I believe trailnames are bestowed, not chosen...don't hurry the process...it will come...

    Personally I think there is room for both chosen trail anmes and given trail names. I also think the individual should have the right and dignity to be able to refuse a trail name and have that stick. There are some folks who are more than happy that saddle someone with a degrading trail name. (Mataharihiker may have some idea of whom I am speaking, although no one on this board comes to mind.) My name was chosen way back before the forums and internet networking sites were started. I would be rather reluctant to change it. So far no one has suggested I should. (Except for some wise acre in the next few posts. Go ahead... make your day... :P)

    But I agree... take your time and let the process brew.

    I still like banana breath but my avatar is still a dog nose so what can I say.
