How'd you get your six-word-memoir name?

by Knoxena on January 18, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Some one ont six-word asked how I got my name:Knoxena.
My friend and I were starting on the site and we needed aka names. Well she had just beat cancer, so we thought of Sherah, warrior princess and I picked Xena. Well Xena was that and I was trying to find another name. I kind of like Rocksey, but I didn't want to sound like a hooker, because I couldn't live up to the name.(And I'm related to someone who writes on the site). Didn't what to embaress that person. I remembered my friend uses Knoxezma facial cleanser and I played with the Knox ena, and it became Knoxena. A clean sccrubbed Xena.
