In a similar fashion to the avatar, the member name of a poster can often give a pre-conceived notion of them, as innaccurate as that may be. What was the reasoning behind choosing the member name you chose? What does it say about you, if anything? Can a relationship between member names indicate a likeness in thinking among the posters? Perhaps it can indicate a dual poster.

What is the origin of your name?

I am a very kind, compassionate, open-minded, understanding, tolerant person. Hence "Benevolent". (no one said anything about humble!)

I abhor tradition for tradition's sake, am totally against organized religion (for MYSELF) and I'm very unconventional and non-conformist. Hence "Heretic".

What you see is what you get. I am... Benevolent Heretic.

"Skippy" = Childhood nickname.

"tjc" = My initials, because plain "Skippy" was taken.

(If any mods are reading this, feel free to cancel out the old "Skippy" user and let me use it! SO long as I get to keep my points and post count!)

I have no frickin' idea. Found myself frozen, fingers hovering over the keyboard, "come on fool, think of a user name, anything...hurry.." I got it!!...NotClever..TA DA!!. Severe case of buyer's remorse here. I have cheap shoes I like better than this username.

I started using this name in 1996 when I began playing games online (Descent via Kali). It was meant to be intimidating, yet unique, hence the K.

Turns out the Kruel is a fairly common surname in South America.

Sporty -- I like sports.....Baseball, football and golf...everything else sucks.

MB -- is really just two letters that I have always used with screen names cause most of the time my first pick is taken, so I add on MB and then everything's cool.

my name is Patrick... and that's where the 'p' comes from. As for the 'fatty'.... well, let's just leave that one alone.

I went with the name Prometheus, because I love Greek Mythology.

-Prometheus gave knowledge to the mortals, and stole fire from zues.

I came up with my name in Year 12 Graphics. I needed a name for my design company logo. Each letter as well as the word as a whole is symmetrical about it's centre (when written in capitals), the word contains no vowels, and it is a palendrome. There is absolutely no significance behind it other than this, it doesnn't represent anything, it's just become a bit of a trademark of mine.

Unlike the avatar, the name cannot be changed once you select it, so it's probably worthy of a bit of consideration before choosing one.

I appreciate all the responses, very interesting indeed.

When I first went online it was shortly after AOL started offering a monthly subscription. I tried all kinds of names and they were all taken. Finally, out of frustration I typed in mrwupy2u and was able to go online. A few months later my teenage son got my AOL account terminated but with just a warning they let me open it again but I had to use a differant name and start a new account. That time I went with mrwupy. A few months later my teenage son got my account terminated and I went with wupman when they finally let me open it again. A few months later my teenage son got me banned from AOL for life. Best thing he ever did for me. Anyway,

I had made so many friends by that time I was stuck with mrwupy. I've had the name for ten years now and most of my friends couldn't imagine me with any other name.

I have learned though that allot of people online have some seriously dirty minds when they see my screen name.

I am the result of a secret experiment to resurrect former dictator Juan Peron. They used gremlins genes to complete the missing links in the DNA chain.
But everything went wrong and now I'm this hideous monster. My only goal in life is to get revenge on my creators.
Now I'm known as... The Peronemlin

Mine is Mechanic 32, because I am a mechanic. Not an auto mechanic, mind you. I work in a factory, and repair the machinery. The 32 came from the fact that I was made on an assembly line. I was the 32nd to be made!

Just kidding! It's because I'm on a 32 bit computer. (go figure)

Believe it or not, I was looking up some declassified government intel on the UFO conspiracy and ATS was on the list of sites thus intel resulted.

So I came here and started hounding the believers of the UFO phenomena and really got into hot water with some of the other members (I was just trying to be funny).

Earthling came about because I'm 100% earthling. Not a reptilian or grey. Just plain old earthling so I put the two together and wahlah, Intelearthling was born.

BTW, extraterrestrail life does exist as we'll soon find out. I was just being sarcastic when I first joined.

I'm really a *dummy* though.
