    What do out names stand for??

    OK...As we all know there are some pretty original names for some of our clan members (hm...cowofwar anyone??) and I am asking where people come up with them...or if they have any special meaning(s). Like Gilgamehs i think told me that his is an ancient babalonian warrior...what is yours?

    I name all my characters after emotions (mac_Vengeance, mac_Wrath, mac_Hate etc.), but before I joined the clan, "Hate" was already taken, so I just stuck an "i" in :).

    when I was like 12 years old me, my bro, and my dad were playing a game called Delirium on our old mac. My dad totally owned us in score. When he was prompted to put in his name in the high scores he put Bunceman (our last name +man, signifying that he was the man ). Well, me and my bro have the same last name so we couldn't use that. So I used Jakeman and my bro used Sethman. i have stuck with that nick ever since. My bro has since moved on to ^sm@ck.

    ...because Jake is the man! :D

    I remember when it was Rayshar Grizzly. Now it turned to Q3 Camper even though you are not a camper and when you are, you suck at it

    Your brother's name is Seth, and his nickname is ^sm@ck, doesn't that sound a little Southern, SmAcKdOwN-ish to you? But who am I the one to judge with a nickname that isn't even a word ;).

    Sparhawk is a character in a David Eddings fantasy series. He's a Pandion Knight (church knight, Paladin). I remember reading a specific passage a while back, but I don't remember the details precisely. Something about him being noble and sacrificing himself that I thought was good, so it stuck.

    I try to pick names that I can identify with. Two others I have used are Neutron (a heavy particle [because I'm a big guy] and because it's part of the bedrock of creation, which is how I fit into life. I'm the engine in the car, I'm support, not management) and blam, primarily on Hotline.

    BaleFire is this wierd stuff in the robert jordan series "eye of the world" that destroys stuff and makes whatever it hit cease to exist from a certain amount of time in the past, more powerfull=farther back. I thought it was cool so that's where my name came from

    Funny how the same threads pop up every once in a while because people can't be bothered to use the search option.
