Why ‘Ggreybeard’? Why the double G?

I started using the online name ‘Greybeard’ maybe 10-12 years ago to pass on the impression that I was not a youngster any more but after a few years it became clear to me that there were too many others on the web using my name.


Many people would have stuck a number on the end but I didn’t fancy the idea of calling myself ‘Greybeard99’. I wanted to be a name without numbers and I think the catalyst was seeing a ‘Lleyton’ or maybe a ‘Lloyd’ in the news somewhere. That struck a chord with me but maybe it was also because it seemed more llyrical.

Either way, in a world of many ‘Greybeards’, there is only one ‘Ggreybeard’!
