Yay, Forgotten Realms rules!!!

Mine is from the greatest zombie hunter that ever lived, but i had an earlier account that was erevis_cale, which i promtly forgot the pasword for and didnt know which e-mail I had used.

That is from another Forgotten Realms book called Twilight falling by Paul S. Kemp, which is probably one of the best books I have ever read.

I've been 'Pisky' for quite a while now - Its the Cornish name for 'Pixy', and represents my mischievous, puckish nature

I started out as Midnight Raven but got bored with it and was looking around for another name. On one European site I saw the name 'Ravenna' and loved it. Of course my decision was helped by a newbie joining with the name 'Midnite Raven' and I didn't want us to get confused.

Confused yet ?

Originally a while back i kept on trying to find a name on aol that was easy for me to remember. Unfortunetly nowadays you have to be creative if you dont' want to end up with a name like "Gerry411980_C2004" so i just figured i'd make my name out of my mood at the time and I was Bored And Lazy on vacation, and Bam! the names never taken anywhere(not that people want it)and it's easy to remember

I came up with My ATS name, from My past life.

I was a Spartan, King Leonidas who led His 300 Spartans, plus 7000 other Greeks to Thermopylae.

Mine's a name that I've used on message boards in the past. I have a few different names that I use on different boards.

I've always used the name "Bob" for the main character in video games, just because it's such an everyman kind of a name. In one game that I played long ago, there was a preset dash ( - ) between the fields for first name and last name. I didn't like the look of "Bob-Smith" (or whatever) so I gave it some thought and, inspired by an interest in Tao, I filled in the first name field as "Bob Lao" and the last as "Tse" for "Bob Lao-Tse." I liked the juxtaposition of Bob and Lao Tse (the founder of Taoism). It calls to mind a sort of wise sage in greasy overalls image. It wasn't long after that that I first used it as a message board handle, and have used it off and on ever since. It's probably my favorite username, which is why I chose it to use here.

And to add to the "everyman" image, it abbreviates as "BLT." That was entirely coincidental, but I find that it pleases me.

Ma'at (Maet, Mayet)
is the Egyptian goddess of truth, justice and the underworld, and wears the feather, symbol of truth, on her head. She passed judgement over the souls of the dead in the Judgement Hall of Osiris. The "Law of Mayet" was the basis of civil laws in ancient Egypt.

Maat/Maa/Maut/Mayet(Pronounced May-at)
"The Mother"; "Lady of the Judgment Hall"; the Virgin; cherished daughter of Ra and wife of Thoth. Her law governed the three worlds; even the other gods had to obey ("live by Maat". In the Hall of Double Justice where Osiris held his tribunal, Maat stood in one pan of the balance scale opposite the heart of the deceased when it was tested for truthfulness. There were 42 Assessors or Judges of Maat who passed judgment on souls. The heart had to be empty of evil to balance the feather weight on the scales. She was often pictured wearing an ostrich feather on her head while standing or sitting on her heels; she held a scepter and ankh. Associated with Thoth. Goddess of truth, right, justice, law, final judgment of human soul, order, divine order, reincarnation.

My name is backwards in my avatar and if you take the first two letters Ma and last two letteres et then you get Ma'et. Shes everything I associate my life with, Truth and justice and motherhood... lol must do with six of the little buggers......all immaculetly concieved to..yep true now...honest...

well thats my nick in a nutshell... theres more to it but enough of boring you with the nitty grittys

Mine was actually a nickname that a friend gave to me in high school, when she found out ludacris(the rapper) had the same name as me. Chris Bridges. Not original, but it fits I guess.
