    I got my screen name from one of my favorite movies..."Snatch" I like the way it sounds, not to mention Benicio Del Toro is great especially in "Fear and Loathing." If you haven't seen either of those movies I suggest you watch them both

    AbeCox is what came out when I put my real name in a Steampunk name generator a few years ago. The name stuck and it was better than my old runescape name that I used back in the day.

    Mine comes from when I first registered my business and had to think of a name to register. Let's just say I hadn't really thought the whole process through as I was at the County Clerk's office and was trying to get a bunch of stuff done in one day. Under a lot of pressure (there was of course a line of approximately 10,000 people) and unable to think of anything except the cat which my (ex-) girlfriend had recently foisted on me (Romeo), and the nature of my business (custom furniture), I came up with RomeoWood.
    The funny thing is that many clients for my bespoke furniture only knew me as "Romeo", mistaking it for my real name as that's who they wrote the checks to. I usually never bothered to correct them, and thus an entire alter-ego was created.
    Fast forward several years, and I began working in film. I now make the analogy of "Hollywood, Bollywood, Romeowood".
    Many of them think it means I produce porn films.
    I often don't correct them, if for nothing else than the humor value.

    Cool thread, still got to go thru and read them all. Fun. Well, Being raised mostly on a Beef farm, I generally think of names that I would for one of my Bulls or a cow, lol. At one point I had a pedigree Angus Bull named Bull of the Woods, The Lonely Bull, Sergient Poker etc. If I had a Ranch today, and just purchased a fine Angus Bull, or one was born.. Because I recently got back into pipes and trying to quit chewing tobacco, Well, then Briar Bully wood first come to mind. So yeah, I guess I named myself after a Bull that does not exist.

    There is a light that never goes out.

    An obelus is this thing ÷. Used now as the division sign in math, in antiquity it marked a passage in a book that a scribe or commentator thought was either really hard to understand or, more likely, just plain wrong. Wife says it suits me.

    I have always worn black. Every day, of every week, of every month, of every year. I am the man in black (pun intended, he's also one of my favoured musicians) --- anyway. One day I was set up on a blind date with a fine lass who happened to be Japanese, and I was wearing silver stud-earrings shaped like litle stars. . . and halfway through the night she just starts giggling, then turns to me and she exclaims (paraphrasing the words I remember) "Hontoni Yoru ne?" There were other words somewhere in that sentence that fleshed it out (for anyone who can read enough Japanese to know that is something of an awkward sentence) but what it boiled down to was something like "Just like Night aren't you?"

    Well "Night" is "Yoru" and the name ended up sticking. I've been Yoru to all my friends ever since.

    Come to think. . . I rather miss her, heh heh. Ahh, high-school was fun.

    Sincerely,

    Yoru

    A few years ago I was in a car accident and unable to work for quite some time so, I spent a LOT of time on my computer. I played games and played poker online (before it was 'illegal') and my brother played too... We wanted to come up with some funny user names so he was Secret Squirrel and I was Morocco Mole. I just shortened it up for this forum.

    My screen name, ravkesef means "Rabbi Silver" in Hebrew. Since that's who I am, it seemed a good name to choose. the word also means "lots of money," but unfortunately, the former is more accurate than the latter.
    Now here's an oddity I've mentioned before. When I first came on the forum, I didn't select my avatar, but apparently Kevin slipped one in from his own stock. And here's the thing: it looks exactly like me. It's as if Kevin came into my home, snapped shot of me and posted it. So now you know my name, my screen name, and what I look like.

    My first company produced candy-smoked wild salmon nuggets, and was co-owned with my room-mate (last name Nesbit). The obvious name for our product was a combination of our last names (Smith and Nesbit), but alas Smiths Bits just didn't have the right ring to it...although, come to think of it; neither did Schmitz Bitz, seeing as we failed in record time. Still, the name sticks, and by avoiding my overly common proper name, I can avoid getting into discussions about economics, which I would rather avoid when I'm not being paid for it (I currently am employed as a business consultant, and dabble in immigration consulting on the side, namely business class, of course...)

    I worked the overnight shift at a fast-food place for a while. My co-worker's other job was as a pyro-technician. She made the fireworks she set off, so came into contact with a lot of heavy metals. This screwed with her short term memory. The entire time I worked with her, about nine months, she never remembered my actual name. After a while she just took to calling 'Yo, hun' It eventually evolved into Johann.

    I have held a few screen names over the years. First was Schwaun, which is a nickname given to me by a friend's father. My name is Shaun and he kept playing it on the mobile food service name, Schwan's. His name was Tommy, so I started calling him Tammy, and the joke went from there.
    Online, I used it in a writing site called Writing.com. After making several friends who liked to tease me about my screen name, I let them settle on me taking the persona of a duck. There created my next name Duckin. I've used this one the most and several people still call me that.

    When I wanted to create a blog outside of my normal setting, my wife helped me create BootlegBonVivant. Quoted directly from my blog:

    What is a bootleg bon vivant, you may ask? Well, it’s kinda like a monkey stealing a soldier’s last MRE. You know, that feeling you get when something is forbidden, yet you have to sample the best of the best. Not saying an MRE is all that great or anything, but it’s prime rib to a monkey who is stuck with nuts, berries, and bananas all the damn time.

    I love being a connoisseur. Even if I am an amateur one at that. Whether it be technology, alchohol, pipes and tobacco, admiring women, food, whatever else there could be. Let’s face it, I love pleasurable things and experiences.

    Southerners don't talk slow because they're dumb, we do it because there's really no rush.

When I decided to join, I happened to be listening to Ring dem Bells by Duke Ellington. Some good music, a good smoke and a drink make for a great evening for me.

    I needed a portfolio when I was working in psychological services, so I registered a domain (theotherspace.net) at the time I had a real portfolio (paper) and several other domains storing personal information this one was my other space on the web, so I decided to call it the other space... It kinda stuck and it was the only domain I held on to, other user names back in the good old days where wolfy & aristippus ... But as I was holding on to theotherspace.net I figured that was a good a name as any as and to me there is real life and the other life (online)

    That is probably an more rambling explaination than was needed but what the hey

    KF5EQV is my Amateur Radio callsign.

    (In almost every other forum, I go by "Nicotine". A nickname I picked up when I was 17. I chose to go by my callsign here though to avoid redundancies. )

    Back when the internet and everything you can do on it first started out (mid to late '90s for me), I also began my research for my family's origins (McGaha: Irish? Scottish? Other?). When I discovered that my ancestors were from Ireland, I wanted a cool, intimidating Irish handle, because McGaha (We pronounce it Muh GAY hay) just isn't overly very cool or intimidating. So, I picked "shillelagh," since it is an Irish ass-beating stick. Maybe not lethal, but painful nonetheless. It just stuck.

    As far a s the "3" is concerned: Being an Irishman (excuse me, Irish-decendent-man, to avoid offending anyone), I had to get the Lord's blessings, so I christened it with the Holy Trinity. It's all about the 3s.

    I can't remember if I posted in here and I don't really feel like looking haha so I'll explain mine:

    I'm a die-hard Subaru fanatic. Subaru's have H4 engine layouts, otherwise known as "Boxer" or "Flat" layout. Since the Impreza is my favorite model and it has a 4-cylinder flat engine, I modeled my screen name after that.

    I'm 'titanicexplorer', as I'm a lifelong Titanic buff, and worked at a number of Titanic artifact exhibits. One of the most interesting artifacts recovered from the Titanic wreck was a pipe- and amazingly it still contained tobacco

    That's so neat! You should start an off topic thread about all your adventures!

    My handle is pretty simple really;
    The L stands for lonesome, the way I feel. The O is for original, I make my own deals. The N is for nothing, thats what I'm owed. The E is for everywhere, thats where I've been before.
    The S is for spaces, I like mine wide open. The T is for truth, thats all I want spoken. The A is for aces, the hand that I'm holding, and the R is for...... dang, I suddenly seem to have run out of Bull****..... Just one letter shy of convincing you guys I'm a poet.......
    Actually, I'm a trucker, and Lone Star is my handle on CB ch19.
    Its mainly because I'm from Texas

    Well mine is awful simple compared to some of you folks. I've liked the German language for a good long time and one day while making an account on some forum while trying to think of a name I pretty much just translated how I was feeling in to a different language.

    When I lived in Texas I was an avid fisherman. My favorite place to fish was Lake Fork known for having big bass. I had to sell my bass boat for health reasons. It was 18'6" with a Yamaha 150 and Yamaha guages. The boat was a Charger 186, an you know the rest of the story. I kind of keep her around that way!

    I was playing Half-Life 2 Death match and I was playing under my friends account. I was killed and the first thing that came into my head was alphabetsoup to yell and my friend couldn't stop laughing and so when my computer came in and I got my account that is what I picked.

    We've lost something in todays society I dearly like to practice as well as hold onto. Its called social etiquette, manners and just plan speaking nice and correctly.

    For instance..... if I got to eat at a resturant and the waitress/waiter brings me my food and drinks the proper reply to such service would be thank you. In return I expect, "My pleasure or you're welcome" NOT NO PROBLEM!

    In turn when I meet someeone professionally or in business or simply in social passing I introduce myself as Mr. So n So which in todays world can be a tad bit formal. So I sacrifice a bit of decorum and simply introduce myself as Mr. Ben. In turn I will address you ar Mr. Mrs. Miss, Ma'am or sir if we are not friends but merely aquaintances.

    Just last week I got to intruduce myself as Mr. Ben and the person offered their hand to shake and replied I'm glad to meet you Ben.......No no no Mr. Stuart. My name is not Ben. Its Mr. Ben.
