hmm.... well.

after seeing a thread in the feedback forum, i thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where everyone can post the origin of their name. there are some pretty strange moikers out there among you, so why don't you let us all know where your choice came from?

i'll start (obviously).

azraelzarohann (AzH). ehm... the origins, well. i first used it when i was playing CivII constantly. i edited the Carthagians to be the Carpathians, and Azrael Zaro Hann was their leader. i think he was usually Defender of the Faith as i liked being fundamentalists so i could build huge armies who were never pissed at being away from their home cities. the Azrael bit was ripped off from WH40K which i used to play. i kinda liked the name. thought it was purty cool. Zaro Hann came along because i wanted to add to the first part. i really, honestly, have no idea from whence it came, only that it popped into my head at some point.

so there we go. the origins of azraelzarohann. who's next?

Kerian. well it was supposed to be Keiran which is a character out of a star wars book. the characters name is really corran but he is in disguise so changes his name to Keiran. as i am a SW fan it makes sense but i like Kerian the typo so i stuck with it and now i use it most everywhere.

My name is inspired by the ’Giovani Fascisti’. I just replaced Giovani with Giovanni, clever, huh? The name Giovanni originates from Hebrew and means ‘Gift from God’. :uhm:

I post under different names on the other forums I frequent.

Regards, Giovanni

the origin of the word Sheepeep

Sheepeep is a word i have used for many years, the fact that it says Sheep is because my last name is Lamb, and the eep refers to my repetetive side as i have a short memory, and the eep refers to the fact i repeat :p

Also, it can be interpereted as a "Sheep-Peep", meaning im your sheep friend, and as long as you stick by the rules (except gravity because that just sucks, litereally) then that statement can be considered true

As well as this, Sheepeep is comprised of only 4 different letters, which means it is simple, and efficient. Something that i prize above all other things is efficiency, which spam does NOT fall under.

There we have it, now you know where Sheepeep came from. What a wonderful story that was (dont forget to whip me for tyypos:p)

for mine it's just that eleven(the number ) looks like Hell Heaven

its just that its not spelled the same

ex: HelL HeAven i just put the underlined letters to make it look like hell heaven, i then replaced the two ''L'' by 11 .

Well, I don't really have a story; I just like the word Dreadnought, I think it is cool. It also "feels" good to pronounce. Obviously, the_dk part is because i am from Denmark.

I got Kahless from Star Trek(of course) I was reading a book and thought that the character was cool, so that's what I've used for my name on all the forums, games, messaging services ect.

Well, My real name's Tom Gelinas, and naturally, I peep and uh.... No! I mean, my names Tom and Peeping and Tom go hand in hand.... can you think of any other commonly used phrase that has Tom in it? I think not... And for the record, I really don't peep....really....
