schentuu, silly name!?
It's pronounced: schen·tuu /[ˈʃən tuː]/ 
Some years ago, I was amused how some germans with poor english sounded, when they tried to say the name of my favorite Linux distribution. This inspired me to form a nickname from an intentionally exaggerated german pronunciation of the english word 'gentoo'.
First it was just a joke, when I had to register at an very unimportant forum. But later I started likeing it. So it became my common nickname.
Happily married with a nerdfriendly wife, she's using linux mint + windows7
I decided to use funtoo because of three facts.
- because the stable tree seems to be less "experimental" than gentoo itself.
With gentoo i broke my system during updates and it took me hours, in a few cases even days, to fix that.
- because the community idea of funtoo.
As of today (2014-07-14) i think i'd need some more time to get into funtoo. But in near future i would love to help bringing the project forward.
- because git is awesome!
Using gentoo/derivates since 2003, but there is still a lot to learn...
