Getta is the shortened version of my real first name, Georgia (Georgetta) that is. i was named after my grandad George and everyone i know calls me Getta.

soft G sound please.
hard G doesn't fit the mold of a softie known for her gentle falsetto.

I'm glad you said... I had assumed hard G, though it's true in most names in which "e" follows, the g is usually soft

Manon as me, opera lover (Manon Lescaut -> Puccini)
Manon as me, lover of an opéra comique in five acts by Jules Massenet

or

Manon, the evil spirit, dark force.

Whats the reason behind your username? - just an FYI

Cobalt60 is a radioactive isotope used to treat cancer patients. I use it cuz it suits my personality And because of my profession which many already know.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

I love tennis. There is a movie Lawrence of Arabia. I though it would be a good word play and a good nickname. Lawrence is my real name and I love tennis so I'm the LawrenceOFTennis .That's all folks.

It was Manon Lescaut I thought of when I first saw your nick

The first thing crossed my mind seeing your nickname was the movie: Manon des sources. Great movie although not many people saw it.

Quite right, that was the main reason. Although I am a man.

Echoes - Epic Pink Floyd hit (Meddle)

Echoes - Gene Clark song; not my favourite of his but I like him, underrated songwriter and massive contribution to the Byrds; my fave band of the sixties: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xil4f2iGczY
