Heads Up - I Have Changed My Name

Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/07/2013 - 5:05 PM

Message from Beth Edwards as was

Just a heads up that my name will be changing here shortly. This is a legal change as I hated my old name severely, I was never findable on Google under it and... well, I like change, (as you probably can tell with my constantly changing avatars). It has been changed for a week or two now but I was worried about doing it here and elsewhere. However, I am doing it as soon as possible as it will make it easier for me just to do it and not worry about it.

I will not be upset if people continue to call me Beth LOL as I know changes can be hard when it is people

So, just a heads up. and, thank you to Pari Chumroo who actually chose it for me when I was looking for the new name :))

Isabella Francesca Abigail Shores

(Shores is the name I was brought up with)

Most people who already were in it with me are calling me Abbie

So what did you settle on?


Posted by: Rich Franco on 05/07/2013 - 5:08 PM


You're not changing it to Rich Franco are you? Let me know, and I'll be Beth!



Posted by: Janine Riley on 05/07/2013 - 5:08 PM

Well.... don't leave us in suspense. Who will you be now - & did you dye your hair red ?


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/07/2013 - 5:10 PM

LOL my hair is brunette at present with a blond streak either side.

I am not called Rich LOL, sorry

I wonder if anyone (who does not already know) can guess what I chose


Posted by: A M Johnson on 05/07/2013 - 5:12 PM

Elisabeth Sladen?


Posted by: JC Findley on 05/07/2013 - 5:13 PM

Goddess of the Interwebs?

Or perhaps just a symbol.

LOL Mike!

Okay changing VERY soon,... just got to wrap up a few things


Posted by: Mike Savad on 05/07/2013 - 5:38 PM

so what happens to all those gents that have your old name tattooed to something?

i guess you'll have to contact them and have them cross it out.

Spill it soooooooon some of us take longer to learn that others and we need a head start! :)


Posted by: Andee Photography on 05/07/2013 - 5:48 PM

You may need to make us a tutorial on that! :)


Posted by: Wingsdomain Art and Photography on 05/07/2013 - 5:50 PM

Isabella Francesca Abigail Shores...that was my second guess!!



Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/07/2013 - 5:50 PM

I am sure you do not need a tutorial LOL

Suppose I had better let Sean know


Posted by: Phyllis Wolf on 05/07/2013 - 5:54 PM

You may recall, I was going to change my first name just because I didn't like it all that much. I changed everything and then just as I was about to go to do it legally, my sons, my Aunt, even old boyfriends....all got upset with me and begged me not to change it, so I didn't.

Wow! When you went for a change you made it a big one! lol! Hello, Isabella!


Posted by: Mo T on 05/07/2013 - 5:54 PM

OMG...what Shore is that? I think I need another english lesson LOOL I must say it's very aristocratic name :)


Posted by: Mike Savad on 05/07/2013 - 5:56 PM

that's a really long impossible to remember name... just letting you know... i'm still calling you beth.

if i change my name it will probably be Mike - but in lower case letters mike. simple. i was named Michael, but i found it was too long to spell accurately, so i made it smaller, i still leave out letters. maybe i'll just be called M, but then i'd need to wear a suit all the time.

Posted by: Angelina Vick on 05/07/2013 - 5:58 PM


Short enough for anyone to remember.


Posted by: Phyllis Wolf on 05/07/2013 - 6:01 PM

I said hello Isabella...but is that what you'll go by or one of the others? Can your name be in a different color on here so everyone will know you're the mod?


Posted by: Mary Bedy on 05/07/2013 - 6:04 PM

Mike, you could be "Agent M".

I like "Isabella" - my granddaughter's name is Isabelle.


Posted by: Mo T on 05/07/2013 - 6:06 PM

Mike are You going to be the head of MI6? LOL


Posted by: A M Johnson on 05/07/2013 - 6:10 PM

Looks like Izzy needs to change her gallery names too.


Posted by: Lynn Palmer on 05/07/2013 - 6:11 PM

Wow, what does this do to all the search engines? Are you going to retain both names in the tags for continuity?


Posted by: Mike Savad on 05/07/2013 - 6:13 PM

that would be awesome so many cool toys and wars i could start.

so beth, how long will it take you to tire of the long version of your name and shorten it to a easier to write version? i can see name boxes and checks being a problem, unless they have more space across the pond. hear in the US they are impossibly small.

Abbie you should have added just do not call me late for dinner... that is what normally comes next! :)


Posted by: Shasta Eone on 05/16/2013 - 8:56 PM

Shucks .... if you don't care ..... then sure, we'll CALL you ! What's your number ??? :))



Posted by: Kylani Arrington on 05/16/2013 - 9:43 PM

I'm so glad you explained! I was like "Where's Beth?!"


Posted by: John Ayo on 05/16/2013 - 11:27 PM

Well, Beth, if I may continue calling you that, as mentioned in another thread, I do prefer your old name. I've always thought it was a beautiful name and it was, in fact, one we were considering if our son had been a girl.

Hey Gersh... how about "Harry Balzac"?


Posted by: Bav Patel on 05/17/2013 - 5:11 AM

Haha I wondered who this new Mod was! :$


Posted by: Raffaella Lunelli on 05/17/2013 - 5:42 AM


I'm a little confused...


Ciao BethAbbie!


Posted by: Thomas Young on 05/17/2013 - 11:26 AM

Congratulations Beth/Abbie!


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/17/2013 - 1:10 PM

*waves at Thomas*


Posted by: Darice Machel McGuire on 05/17/2013 - 1:34 PM

Aloha Abbie, welcome to FAA, so good to make your aquaintance....LOL. Abbie suits you. It's much more Earthy and friendly.


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/17/2013 - 1:45 PM

Darice, as I am a bit of a weird looking person in the real world (all long dresses and shawls, duo toned long hair and no make up) I was told by someone here that it was 'SO much more you than stuffy Elizabeth' LOL


Posted by: Patricia Strand on 05/17/2013 - 1:53 PM

Abbie, your former name always brought to mind the senator's wife here in the US. Now you have a name that is uniquely yours. I've known others who have been brave enough to try name changes, and the changes always seem to suit them best in the long run. I guess nobody knows you like you do.


Posted by: Regina Valluzzi on 05/17/2013 - 4:44 PM

Keep the Italian parts, they'll google well. Not sure why a nice Italian girl would want such a British sounding name as "Abbie Shores". But, Lisabetta Eduoardinini, it's whatever makes you happy (that you can spell)


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/17/2013 - 5:11 PM

I am not Italian is why and Shores is my family name :D


Posted by: SAIGON De Manila on 05/18/2013 - 7:36 AM


yeah I would like to see a hyphenated glyph for Abbie -TAFKAB- (the admin formerly known as Beth)! :-))


Posted by: Kathi Shotwell on 05/23/2013 - 12:10 AM

Thanks for explaining! I was wondering what happened. Glad it's all good. Congrats on the new handle!


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/23/2013 - 4:46 AM

Lol Saigon! Then we would get threads asking what it meant .... or it may b a good idea.. hmmmmmm *thinks about it*

Kathi :) Thank you!


Posted by: Cristophers Dream Artistry on 06/04/2013 - 1:04 AM

Hmmm......somehow I missed this thread.

Well Abbie......I LOVE the name change, but please give me time to adjust. :)


Posted by: Ben and Raisa Gertsberg on 06/04/2013 - 1:32 AM

It's news for me too, I thought, Beth was on vacation and Abbie was a substitute to help out JC. Will take me a while to adjust. I actually like Beth a lot, short and sweet :).



Posted by: Wendy J St Christopher on 06/04/2013 - 3:20 AM

I'm thinking we should keep this bumped up for at least a few weeks, eh? ;-)


Posted by: Wendy J St Christopher on 06/04/2013 - 4:34 PM

Bumping this info up!


Posted by: John Lyes on 06/04/2013 - 4:48 PM

I used to be Maynewearing Gildehardt Winterbotham

Posted by: Paul Anderson on 07/31/2013 - 4:33 PM

I'm late catching up with this bit of news but it answers my questions...and I love the name. You have so many options to use. Bella, for one is beautiful.


Posted by: Joy McKenzie on 07/31/2013 - 4:58 PM

I know that's you (artist formerly known as Beth!) :)


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 07/31/2013 - 5:11 PM


Posted by: Andee Photography on 07/31/2013 - 5:16 PM

But some of the new folks could call you Beth if any old threads are still open and you

signed your name as Beth like they call Sean, Brian..... in the the Artist website thread

...most powerful something one...I forget the thread title... Someone made a comment

and called him Brian the other day because he signed it that Brain back then.


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 07/31/2013 - 5:55 PM

signed it Brain? LOL

Doesn't really matter....what's in a name?
