Mine is just a name I made up to use online. I don't like choosing usernames that aren't names like teacher8283273 or butterfly. I'd rather be called by something that is a name of a person even if it's not my real name.

What about you?

My real name is Margaret. I go by Maggie. My last name begins with D. It's the only possible way I could remember it.

The constellation of Orion has cultural significance all over the world and has influenced the mythos of many ancient societies. The meanings are too many to talk about here, but if you look it up you'll know. The most common one that's understood in the west is that Orion is hunting the Bear, also known as Ursa Major. They exist as a pair in the night sky and they have been locked in combat for all time.

The Bear has a personal significance from an aboriginal standpoint and so the mythos surrounding Orion means a lot to me.

But seriously, it is based on comic character I created way back in H.S. - my goal then was to become a famous comic book artist - guess the whole "FluffyNinja" concept never really caught on, LOL. Perhaps I was just too far ahead of my time :ninja:

Honestly, I was never very creative with coming up with names. So when I started playing WoW when it first came out my friend put down as my user name Soccerboy. Hence my name. It was either that Manslayer, my nickname in high school, or my email address which is actually my real name.

My first online gamer name was "Unknown Slayer" on XBAND.
Most of you guys probably haven't heard of XBAND though.

One of the first online gaming services.

Looking back now, she probably just needed help writing her term paper - amazing that she's stuck with me for 16 years!

I am an average, pretty non-descript woman - the girl next door type. I have gone by this moniker for at least ten years, although on a couple of sites I went by a shortened version of my real name - 'Chelle. :shrug:

I'm a John Wayne fan--you know, "The Duke". So I was just looking for something along those lines. I went with Baron 'cause I understand them to be the rednecks of nobility.

Yeah, sounds a lot tougher than "The Pilgrim". Gotta love the Duke.......they just don't make 'em like him anymore

I was a Sergeant in the Army and I Rock! I also was a huge Sgt Rock comic book fan when I was a kid.
Hey, I think I still have some of those in my old comics collection, LOL.

I'm bitter about not being admitted into my old Catholic school's Latin course, and have been using Latin monikers ever since.
