Mine came from when I was just fooling around on the net years ago, and I had to put a name, and my little brother just blurted out: "Put Granpire Viking Man!" Everyone here has the strangest usernames on the net, and I am wondering were everybody here gets their names from, so without further ado, carry on!

I came up with mine because I wanted something "breathy" sounding and ancient. All the qualities of which my name WON'T have if you mispronounce it- it's "ear-clan", not "eye-er-clan".

Thats what I thought when I saw it. Ancient. So I guess it didn't have any special meaning for you in your life?

Mine started back when I was about to play the first game I ever played on the Internet (on my dad's computer in the basement using our telephone connection), Empires: Dawn of the Modern World. I needed a good, quick, to-the-point name that made sense.

I put Geek in as a start (I was am smart at least for my age) and then put "of Death." At first, I wasn't very amused, then I put the initials together and found "GoD". I immediately pressed the "Create Account" (or whatever) button. I, of course, asked my dad if I could use the Net after I actually played over it.

As for my other screen name, one none of you have seen, SomeBodyElse... well.... that started when I got kicked out of a Warcraft 3 game by some idiot. Naturally, I wanted back in because I couldn't host at the time so I quickly logged out and made another account. Obviously, Somebody was already taken, so I took SomeBodyElse. It serves as an alias of my alias.

Lastly, if neither login works, I'd put in qwerty for obvious reasons. It's the alias of my alias' alias.

I would tell you how my passwords came to being, but that would be going too far.

The origins of mine are rather easy to figure out... you know this constellation, right?

Not really. I've heard of Serpents, but I don't think thats a constellation. For some reason, that name makes me think of Snape from Harry Potter.

As for Ireclan.... I read the explanation before the name. It sort of ruined it.... it doesn't seem ancient to me.

How many times have we done this?

OK, I'll give you the short version: When I was 12 Trada sounded wicky cool. The dot is cause I had to start this account again. Oh, and my full handle is TradaPIB (yeah, go google search me/stalk me if ya want). PIB is a in-joke.

"Serpens" is "snake" or "serpent" in Latin.

Mine's pretty trivial, however my real-life name isn't Alex: the italian version of Alexander is "Alessandro". It comes from Greek (Aleksandros, if I'm not wrong) and means "who protects men" (again, if I'm not remembering wrong).

ps.
In general this is the only place where I'm known as simply "Alex" (being here NO registered users when I chosen it, on May 5th of 2003) there certainly were no "collisions". Elsewhere, I quite constantly use "alex.tg".

My own is a modified version of the name of a famous Japan animation movie author: Hayao Miyazaki.

Once in the past someone of my friend gave me this name, since I'm a big fan of that author.

I write it in that way because of the translitteration of the sound from the japanese.

The correct pronounce is something like "yah"+"yo" but without the 'h' sound.
(I mean: the a is like in "arm" not like in "animals". it's NOT like "yay"+"o"! >: P)

It's my nickname also in the real life, not just on the web, since many years now.

y.

PS
and shame on you if you don't know who is Miyazaki! : P

What does the ".tg" stand for?

Heh, my usernames are so varied across the net. It makes it harder to tie my actions to othernames on the 'net.

This particular name came about by me pulling "Hello" out of thin air. The "! " part came from me not seeing any restrictions on what the name could contain; so my typical mischeviousness though "I wonder what happens if I add a smily to it." Which did lead me to discover a bug in the way Postline processed c-disk links.

My name is Brock Greman.

Edit: And I really wish I could change it to either be bgreman or BGreman.
