What does your name mean?

Some of y'all have got some weird user names, so tell us what they mean.

Mine is based on my real name (obviously).

ScorLibran is an astrological term describing someone born on the cusp between Libra and Scorpio (Oct 21-25).

If you believe in astrology, it means that I generally have tendencies of both signs.

Otherwise, it's just a username that's rarely taken, meaning I can get it almost anywhere I create a user account or an email address.

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.

Now, I know there's got to be at least three or four other threads about this very topic floating somewhere in the abyss of the winamp.com forums' General Discussions.

But I'm too lazy to search for them right now, and apparently everyone else is too.

Anyways, my screenname was given to me by some friends that were in JROTC (hence the 'sgt') back in my sophmore year of highschool (hence the 99 at the end). The fuzzbubble part came from my haircut... slightly longer than a Marine-style buzzcut. Been keeping my hair cut the same way ever since.

Mine means just that Smeggle...There's two of us me Smeggle and my mate Smeggle I'm the nutty one...

Mind, I have a rather interesting last name on my Mum's side of the Family 'MiddleMass'. It comes from Northumberland (Fuck Thatcher and Umbria's).
During the Scottish/English War's where England reclaimed Northumberland after The Romans had left (The reason as you know behind Hadrians Wall) my family were part of the Original Tribes of the area, hence the name 'Middlemass' meaning, Simply, 'The Mass of People in The Middle'.

Does that make it more intersting as Sarge said this has been done (I remeber one when I first joined 18 or so mnth's a go)...

s0be was shortened from s0bellzard, which is my 'other' screen name on an IM client.

s0bellzard is based on S0Be (a beverage, by the south beach beverage company) whose logo is a lizard.

s0be

And On that day, the Lords of the land said unto their Master Architect, "The temple you have made to the gods of Wasabi and Maki has brought us no great prosperity" and they sent out him into the lands.

As he traveled to a far off land, he found he wasn't traveling alone, but that he had gained companions, and when they found their new land, they started work on a new temple, one that would be OPEN to all who wanted to worship.

J_Bloggs (Joe Bloggs) is a name people use when they talk about a random fictional person. Eg. writing Joe Bloggs in the name of an exam when showing off a practise exam and how to fill it out. Being such an anonymous name and me being paranoid at the time, it seemed like a good choice.

Well I was bumming around the internet one day and I looked outside and there was a crow on the windowsill. I always liked crows and ravens and I wanted a username with something to do with that. So I was thinking, 'Hmm. Crows are usually black, but I'm not exactly usual... So how about... A white one?' And White Raven was born.

I am not to be confused with the fat woman one can find when one googles for 'White Raven.'

inside joke.
in kentucky college sports, you are either a fan of louisville (cardinals) or kentucky (wildcats). when i started playing arcade games around town i always put in as my initials "ctk" for "kill the (wild)cats". flip the c and k around and replace the s in kats with a z and you have a perfectly resonable real name. and nobody knew any better. 8086 are the years that the cards won the ncaa basketball championship (1980,1986). some forums i belong to i don't bother with 8086, but anything that is ctkatz or pretty close to it is me.

And this whole time (and on other forums) I had honestly thought you were one of the few using your real name. I had never heard that it was actually used as a "fictional fill-in" name. I learn something new everyday.

(BTW...now I have to ask...are you the same "Joe Bloggs" who posts on Hydrogenaudio from time to time?)

Anyway, my real name is in my sig. It's my full name too. I have no last name, sort of like "Sting" or "Prince". I thought of going by "The Chris", but I didn't want to encroach on TheMike's idea with his name.

Mine was originally the name of the main character in a book I started writing.
I stopped writing the book after 7 chapters, and I somday plan to start the story again from scratch, but I kept the name.
(It's from the elven words for "white" "star" and "fire".)

The world is made of conflicts: good and evil, order and chaos, light and dark, hot and cold. All are essential to life. None can prevail for any length of time, or life will fail. In the end, the best any can hope for is balance.

Nope.

I try to use 'J_Bloggs' to save confusion, but sometimes it'll be 'JBloggs' or 'Joe_Bloggs'. Usually can get one of them, and I try not to use spaces now that I think about it.

Mrs Mia Wallace was played by Uma Thurman in the movie Pulp Fiction, which I liked a lot when I was 15/16 and created this username for my MSN...since my memory is not that good, I use the same name ever since and never had a problem with it ever being taken

To common mistakes:
  • I am not married, the "Mrs" is only from the movie
  • My real name is not Mia although I started reacting on it in real life
