    Smile Where Did Your Online Name Came From?

    Like it says above,

    Lets just say I'm curious...
    I find that alot of people have some cool/weird/unusual names here.

    Guess I'll start 1st.
    Emerald = Name of a character I created when...I was like 13 or 14? The name sorta stuck.

    Mara = Name of a women from Star Wars novels.

    85 =...The year I was born...yea I know I'm old.

    *If there was a thread like this before, it did not appeared on the search*

    Sure, there’s another thread like this around here somewhere, but no worries.

    “Seedling” – I wanted a simple noun of something humble but with potential, to remind me to always keep learning.

    My alternate handle is more fun: “Stoloniferous”. Bonus points to anyone who figures that one out.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Stoloniferous is a plant with stolons =)

    And Iliada is what I called my first WoW character (female dwarf pala). I couldn't play an hour without getting a compliment for the name, everyone thought it was very beautiful. I've found out later on that it is Greek for the story about Troy and all that, The Iliad in English (Homer's. And no, not Homer Simpson). I think it sounds good, and gives me a bit of anonymity on the internet =)

    Alzorath was a character name I used for a lot of things back in the early/mid 90s...first semi-permanent use of it though for me was back in Diablo 1, for a sorcerer I played at a friend's house regularly (online that is).

    I have used it in a wide array of games, forums, etc. etc. - and had it stolen, and seen it used a couple times. It is also unfortunately confused for "Azeroth" (an area in the now popular Warcraft series, which I continually note did not inspire the name - in the early 90s, I had never heard of Warcraft, and I'm honestly not even sure if Warcraft 1 had released by the time I started using it on paper for character names).

    I've tried to deviate from this name several times, but couldn't get away from it (people would still call me "Alz" online thanks to keeping in touch with friends from the old gaming days). One of the most enduring ones being "Logic_X" ... though that didn't last long at all (maybe 6 months).

    85 =...The year I was born...yea I know I'm old.
    I was born in 1983...and I won't concede to being old until I need to wear a diaper .

    That sure was fast, Iliada!

    I have invasive creepers, see?

    [edit] Emerald, I'll be 30 this spring. But that's nothing. Wait until Ilaekae wanders in and starts talking about the Good Ol' Days back in the Roman empire.

    Are you interested in botany by any chance, Seedling?

    Gz on the 4,500 posts. That's.... Many =)

    I created my nickname five years ago. The main influence was fantasy novels/pen&paper RPG games. My personality and interests changed during that time and now I would consider such nickname as slightly infantile.

    However people on the CA and other forums know me as Farvus so I don't have enough courage to change it .

    Iliada...yea that is one pretty name...

    Alzorath,
    Your name is cool in my book!

    Seedling,
    Arr...I can't help it...I'm 22, and I'm still in college...that is considered old around here(Malaysia)...unless it was some higher studies...
    And you're 30 huh?
    I thought you were older, haha! Interesting name to stick with.

    Farvus,
    Fantasy pen and paper huh? If you don't mind me poking at you...I'm guessing you're...in your 30s or late 20s?

    In this world set by God,
    Imagination is our magic...

    my name is actually my name except for the first name

    i like the name Oni because it is three letters like my real name and way easier to pronounce and not said wrong like A LOT of people do and plus it means Demon!!! way better then what my real name mean in khmai, "left over" or shorten from a word that mean "sadness."

    Whyatt Thrash...

    This stuck with me since high school... I grew up in a rather posh neighbourhood, and coming from a different upbringing I was always viewed as somewhat of white trash... So the Filter song "They call me white trash" kindof became my anthem... "Whyatt" to make it sound more like a name, and well... "Thrash"... Just because..

    I've used the same name since I started out surfing the internets basically, so I'm pretty easy to track.

    This leads to it instead of giving me anonymity actually makes it quite easy for anyone to find out anything about me, so I gotta be just as careful about what I say and do as in real life. Which is a Good Thing in the end, I think...

    - Current project <- Crit away!
    - The Whyatt Sketchbook Any tips appreciated

    I got the name Unbreakable from the Kanye West song Through the Wire .."Unbreakable what you thought they call me Mr. Glass."....It means that no one can break his will and that's how i feel about art no one can break my will.

    Yeah, my post-count is an embarassment.

    Plants are fascinating! My knowlege of plants is still very small, but growing. Buying a house with a big yard has suddenly got me fascinated with native New England plants. I've now got so many seeds planted that I won't know what's what in the spring! I've taken to dragging my friends around through the wild property adjacent to ours so that I can collect seeds and see what's out there. Even now when everything is dormant there's still so much to see!

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    I just use a shorter version of my name, Melissa and my last name. I'm too unoriginal when it comes to creative screen names. =p I was known as Silaria though on a few of the gaming sites I posted at years ago. Twas a character I made back in the days of Baldurs Gate.

    Ilaekae is the name I invented for a race of "Shadow People" in a series of stories I've been writing on and off for about 10 years. Still in rough stage, but I hope to get it whipped into a novel someday. The Ilaekae are seven interbreeding species that form the basis for all of man's legends about faeries, werewolves, demons, angels, mermaids, etc., who had to go into hiding when humanity tried to wipe them out around 5,000 BCE. The stories are about their reappearance in the modern world.

    hehe another cool thread.

    I took my nickname out of a Marilyn Manson song:

    The Golden age of grotesque -
    "....we're the LOW ART GLOOMINATI
    and we aim to depress
    the scabaret sacrilegends
    this is the golden age of grotesque....."

    My nickname actually used to be "lowartgloominati" but I decided that it was much too long for me so I cut it down to just gloominati.

    Tis my first name and the initial of my last. How interesting is THAT?!

    My original name here, Creativesmugbug, was just...odd, IMO. And I've never liked it; hence, the change to my name. There's a story behind "creativesmugbug", but I won't go into it.

    8) Yeah man I'm Cambodian. hey thats cool ur girl is khmai. Don't she teaches you any khmai words...like "a Gadaw thode" can't seem to spell it right but if u ask ur girl i think she will know what it says...

    Well the last time i went to church this white guy went up to speak and i was like "old folks here not gonna really understand this dude unless he spoke khmer." The next thing i know khmer word came out of him clear and understandable i was shocked that any other person other than cambodian can speak khmer that clear.

    Well where ever or whom ever he learned that from must be good at teaching him and plus that guy was a mercenary helping cambodia so he had it easy...i think...

    and man that is one long ass mexican name

    man, i thought that it had been awhile since i'd seen creativesmugbug and asoir around here, guess I know why now.

    When I was little I used to write graffiti (poorly) and I wrote as Dose206. dunno why I picked dose but 206 is the area code where I was born n raised.

    You know, even from just those few lines of summary, and I kinda' wanna' read that future-book, Ilaekae.



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zilant

    The duality of the two heads is fascinating to me.
    Normally in mythology, there's a pretty prevalent moral dichotomy. Something's either evil, or it's good, shades of grey are far and few between.

    Even the story makes it hard to pin a label on. On one hand, it's murderous and vengeful, on the other hand, the main source of the dispute that gave the opportunity for vengance was humans invade it's territory and setting it's fellow snakes on fire.
