A Reference for My Names Not Yet Found on NB

I have found several of the names I have used in my UC and on posts are not yet in the NB database. As I realize that the number of names that have been requested to be put in can be overwhelming, I have decided to make this post so people can find out what some of my names are until they are added into the database. It puts all of my names in one place for others to see as I know finding them was a stroke of luck on some of them for me. I will remove the names on here after they’ve been added to the NB database as I don’t find the need to have the info on here anymore at that point. This is just for reference and commentary isn’t necessary unless you have something constructive to add.
