The original choice for my site name was because, at the time, I was "fandubbing" my favorite animes. (The name of the page was still Kuroi to Aoi, though)
These "fandubs" were cute, in my mind.

Cute Fandubs

I originally had another site to put anything else on, and I planned this site to be just for my fandubbing projects. As time passed, I grew to hate Geocities... and they cancelled my account... and my AOL webpage was to complicated to upload to. So, I began to use this address for more. Now, of course, the original meaning of my site-name no longer holds entirely true, thusly, until I find another domain as convenient to work with, and can manage to get off my butt and actually sign up for one if I find it, I am providing a list of alternate meanings that one can take.

Now the "cute" and the "fan" work just fine, since I am cute girl, and I am a fan of stuff.

One meaning of 'dub' means "to call by a distinctive title, epithet, or nickname", thusly my sitename could be taken to mean:

"cute fan titles".

Another meaning is "to execute poorly". This is my favorite alternate meaning: "Cute Fan Screw-Ups". This speaks to how I often view my projects. I try very hard, and they all have a cute/campy factor, but often, they are still messed up ^^

A similar meaning is "one who is inept or clumsy", so it takes on the meaning that there is more than one Cute Fan, and they are all messed up. This would work if there I weren't the only one running this page ^^;

Dub is also an abbreviation for Dublin, but that doesn't really work in any way. ^^;
A similarly non-working dictionary meaning would be: "Jamaican pop music in which audio effects and spoken or chanted words are imposed on an instrumental reggae background".

One can also take the original planned definition of "dubs" in a broader sense. ("to provide (a motion-picture film) with a new sound track and especially dialogue in a different language") --- only, I take virtually anything and translate it into a different language. In fact, many people already take very loose definitions of the term "fandub" and misuse it all the time. So, perhaps people haven't even noticed the 'misnomer in the Address bar'.
