    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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.

    I'm guessing Kanye's song is a reference to the movie "Unbreakable", where Samuel L. Jackson's character is referred to as "Mr. Glass"...
