When did you join NB?

I’m not quite sure when NB started, so I went to 2002.

Does anyone know who the oldest active berry is? (other than the creators)

It started in 2008. I’m pretty sure @jessicajanex17 is up there in terms of the longest serving [name_u]Berry[/name_u]!

@name_sage’s profile says they’ve been here since the site was launched :grin:

I joined in early 2019!

I have to look it up every time. I know I visited the site for over a year before signing up though!

I joined the first time in 2012, but I made this account in 2014/2015. I’ve been “on” Nameberry since the end of 2009 though (in terms of lurking/reading the blogs).

I joined not long after the site first launched in 2008.

Officially in '17, but I was around “lurking” long before that! :sweat_smile:

2012, though I lurked on the site for maybe a year before I joined.

Took a bit of a break last year.
Sooo many new faces, so I’m not surprised to see so many (currently) selected only a year or two ago.

I joined officially in 2018, but I had been using the site features and reading the blog for a good four years before that and lurking on the forums at least a year before deciding I wanted to join in.

It feels like I’ve been around forever, though! :blush:

It’ll be 12 years in [name_u]August[/name_u]. I joined on [name_u]August[/name_u] 9, 2009 and it’s insane to believe it’s been that long!

2010 for me, when I was 13 :open_mouth:I think I actually discovered the site late in 2009. I haven’t always been active on the forums and sometimes I do take breaks from the site but I always end up coming back to it like an old friend :blush:

I think that a lot of people probably also joined in quarantine as something to do. [name_u]Or[/name_u] that’s at least what I did. :blush:

I joined with this account in 2020 but I originally had an account that I think I joined with in 2017 (deleted it because I’d used a very Google-able username and it’s impossible to change usernames) but I wasn’t an active user at all until 2020.

I joined back in 2018, but I’d been lurking for years. [name_m]Even[/name_m] after I joined, it took me a while to get comfortable replying to threads.

I’ve had an account here since [name_u]February[/name_u] 2011 so this is my tenth year. I think I lurked a little bit before I made the account, so maybe I even started coming late 2010?

I joined [name_u]October[/name_u] of 2014, so a little after [name_f]Noemi[/name_f] was born. She just turned 7 yesterday! I go through periods of being active on here and then not coming on for awhile because life is too busy.

2013, pretty active for most of those years, though I did take a break in 2019 as I was busy with uni :slight_smile:

Yep! It’s true! I’ve come and gone under a few different user names. I was obsessed with Beyond Jennifer and Jason when I was young (and then Beyond Ava and Aiden eventually). I was a big fan of Pam and Linda.

Was anyone else around in those days? I’m wondering if they remember some particular users. There weren’t very many then. I especially remember a lady who had twin boys in their 20s and one was named Leo and I can’t remember the other one and she had a 4 year old named Josephine. Everyone loved her and her names seemed very ahead of their time then. There was also a very active user who passed away during that time. And there were some wonderful tributes made to her. Ah, time flies.

It’s a lot different these days. Lately I’m feeling too old to keep up!

In '08 my username was chrbaker. I was probably most active under namesage (not name_sage) which btw was before the Name Sage was ever a thing! Lol

I had to go find some of my '08 posts. Her username was [name_f]Lola[/name_f] and the other twin’s name was [name_m]Simon[/name_m].

Officially joined Dec ‘19. Been lurking the forums long before that.
One of my faves components was the namehunter name generator still waiting to come back to this updated site.
