Some interesting stories *grin*

Like Space Amoeba, I started with the dial-up BBS's using 'seraphim'. A couple of years ago I found others using the moniker, and I could no longer register as such.

My friends tease me because I ride an Australian saddle, when most of them ride Western or English, so when I started registering on forums several years ago, I came up with Robert Swagman - a swagman being a wandering worker (a bit of a hobo), and 'bob', being (at one time) the equivalent of a dime.

A ten-cent hobo.

Mine is the first three letters from my last name and the first three letters of my wife's maiden name. BooZon (Boorer and Zonca).

My username represents my real names...

That's simple...

A long time ago, in a place far far away I used to play an online game called 'Planetarian' - big online community and I registered under my Road name 'FalconWay'.

During the time I played this got shortened to 'Falc' in the forums and IRC. This kind of stuck, and I liked the abbreviation.

So 'Falc' is it, and has been for quite a number of years now.

When I first started surfing the net, I wanted a name to reflect my interest in lighthouses, but LighthouseLady was already taken in most places, so I just formulated an understandable short version. It's the only screen name I use online. Little did I know how literal the meaning would become...now specializing in lighthouse phototgraphy, working to fundraise for rebuilding lighthouses & having the biz Lighthouse T-shirts Plus in which I bring all those things together...
But hubby still won't let me put a lantern room on top of the house over my office!! ;)

Agua - Water
Preta - Black

aguapreta is the name of a small, Brazilian community I often visit... I have used it for years. When it is not available, I use the name of other small, Brazilian towns for log-ins.

I goof around...maybe too much. Sometimes I'm just plain foolish.

Sometimes I'm too cool for my own good...

Aryste is polish for Artist.

However, that has absolutely nothing to do with my name. In the early years, I was "TheArtiste".. then just "Artiste".. and then I wanted to be different, so I changed the i to a y..

it stuck, and a little while later, while doing a google search on my name to see where my website came up, I discovered Artyste is polish for Artist... which still has nothing to do with anything.

I got this nickname in high school. I had the fastest car.

I was just-married!!!!

...in 1998, when I needed a handle for some site. Marital bliss kicked in, and the name has stuck.

Interestingly, every time I wander in to dpc fanatics, it results in the question, "Hey! Who just got married?"

It's my first name, twice

The thought of it scared the heck out of me for years...now, you can't get me to quit talking about the kids! :-)

LOL - I now feel like an idiot who can't read! I always read your name as Glad To Be Bad! Dyslexia rules.

BTW - Mine is quite easy to figure out if you look at my profile name and where I live.

edit: and can't spell.

Mine is french for tall marginal. Because I'm 6" and a free thinker. My opinions and tastes are mine and mine only and rarely popular with others.

P.S. Wouln't it have been more fun to ask each other what they think our nick meant before we release that info?

I am originally from Missouri and lived right next to the Kansas border. Back around the time of the cvil war, those Kansas A-holes would come over and raid us because they were pissed about the slave situation. So a group of Missourians got together and called themselves the Border Ruffians to protect the homeland.

Great thread:

Goldberry = character from my favorite books - Lord of the Rings.

She was a Princess who lived with Tom Bombadil in Fellowship of the Ring. I've always felt a deep connection to princesses :-)

My first name and my last name.

And conveniently, Mortal Kombat which is what I tend to enter in online forms that require me to put more than "K" for my last name. It's great fun because then I get emails addressed to "Ms. Kombat."

When I first joined DPC I was Wolfie, but I got all the stupid comments about howlin' etc...

So I changed it and became Formerlee...formerly Wolfie!

Or, Alice Cooper track, Formerlee Warmer.

It's that simple...no that's me...I'm that simple? I think I need to lie down somewhere dark and quiet. What was the question again??

Archery is my other great interest. 3Ds refers to a certain type of target. The animal lovers wont like this. The 3D target is a life size foam reproduction of an animal that ranges in size from woodchuck or beaver up to water buffalo. The scoring zones being heart,lungs & body. My favourite targets being the bear & deer targets.

NSOROMA is an Akan symbol of Ghana.
Some of the meanings follow:

* Hope and Success.
* Faith and Belief in a supreme being.
* A person of exemplary character and outstanding personal attributes.
* A person who is a leader, a star of a home, school, institution.
* Female essence of life.
* A Child of the Heavens.
* A Child of the Supreme Being. "I do not depend on myself.
My illumination is only a reflection of His."

This was the first tattoo I ever got (back when I was 21) and I have been using the name since then. And 1979 is the year I was born.

The symbol is below :)
' . substr('//www.nsoroma79.com/LJ/signature.jpg', strrpos('//www.nsoroma79.com/LJ/signature.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

My name is Mark, and I live in Sarasota, FL. The airport code for Sarasota Airport is SRQ. So instead of calling myself, Mark of Sarasota, I went with Mark of SRQ. It has nothing to do with liking airports or anything though. There is also a Sarasota magazine called SRQ.
