I just went into my account and changed part of my name. It used to be "LiliMarlene", my first and middle names, but my friends usually call me "Lil", so I'm more comfortable with that.

Lil, we would have eventually nicknamed you that anyway! biggrin.gif

thanks, Rose.
When I first posted on here, that was something that I said, I explained my name and said that my friends usually called me "Lil" and that I hoped I would become friends with lots of people here, so far, I've met lots who are just great and am getting to being friends with several, though at times it may seem sporadic.....
it's never meant to be!

Well, Lil! We all get busy and making friends on here as well as learning Celtic culture and listening to all the wonderful music on here is what it is all about. I hope you make some really good friends here as I have.

Were you named after the famous German Song about a Soldier seperated from his love?


Lili Marlene

by Hans Leip 1915

1. Vor der Kaserne
Vor dem großen Tor
Stand eine Laterne
Und steht sie noch davor
So woll'n wir uns da wieder seh'n
Bei der Laterne wollen wir steh'n
|: Wie einst Lili Marleen. :|

2. Unsere beide Schatten
Sah'n wie einer aus
Daß wir so lieb uns hatten
Das sah man gleich daraus
Und alle Leute soll'n es seh'n
Wenn wir bei der Laterne steh'n
|: Wie einst Lili Marleen. :|

3. Schon rief der Posten,
Sie blasen Zapfenstreich
Das kann drei Tage kosten
Kam'rad, ich komm sogleich
Da sagten wir auf Wiedersehen
Wie gerne wollt ich mit dir geh'n
|: Mit dir Lili Marleen. :|

4. Deine Schritte kennt sie,
Deinen zieren Gang
Alle Abend brennt sie,
Doch mich vergaß sie lang
Und sollte mir ein Leids gescheh'n
Wer wird bei der Laterne stehen
|: Mit dir Lili Marleen? :|

5. Aus dem stillen Raume,
Aus der Erde Grund
Hebt mich wie im Traume
Dein verliebter Mund
Wenn sich die späten Nebel drehn
Werd' ich bei der Laterne steh'n
|: Wie einst Lili Marleen. :|

english lyrics

Underneath the lantern,
By the barrack gate
Darling I remember
The way you used to wait
T'was there that you whispered tenderly,
That you loved me,
You'd always be,
My Lili of the Lamplight,
My own Lili Marlene

Time would come for roll call,
Time for us to part,
Darling I'd caress you
And press you to my heart,
And there 'neath that far-off lantern light,
I'd hold you tight ,
We'd kiss good night,
My Lilli of the Lamplight,
My own Lili Marlene

Orders came for sailing,
Somewhere over there
All confined to barracks
was more than I could bear
I knew you were waiting in the street
I heard your feet,
But could not meet,
My Lili of the Lamplight,
my own Lili Marlene

Resting in our billets,
Just behind the lines
Even tho' we're parted,
Your lips are close to mine
You wait where that lantern softly gleams,
Your sweet face seems
To haunt my dreams
My Lili of the Lamplight,
My own Lili Marlene

In Jr. High I grew very enamored of the British Isles, esp. the Celts, and fantasy stories. I took Morgana Lafayette as my pen name, modernizing Morgan La Fae (who i think got a bad wrap). Most registries won't allow me to have the full length, so I just use the initials.

IrishBecca30 is pretty simple, I think.

I'm of Irish (& Scottish biggrin.gif ) descent, hence Irish.. My name is Rebecca, but I wen't by Becca years ago, and I'm the BIG three-oh! lookaround.gif, but don't tell anyone! wink.gif

As simple and probably over-used as my name combinations are they fit me well. I have a penchant for wandering aimlessly whenever such a situation presents itself(not as often as I would like these days). As I always carry one of my tin whistles with me I often end up under a tree, on a beach, or some various other place playing/practicing whatever tunes seem to strike me at the moment.

Though I really have been given many nicknames by many people for many(go figure) reasons, I find this the most appropriate and liked name for myself on any and all celtic/irish/music sites I frequent( does a visit once a month count as frequent now??? )

I may have to change the last two numbers in my name. The player who wore #30 for the White Sox, Magglio Ordoñez, signed with the Detroit Tigers. Not only did he sign with a division rival, he had more than a few parting shots for my beloved South Siders fyou.gif !

May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
