Good one. Eh, the new generation just isn't into retro gaming, though.

My name...well...about that...

I honestly have NO clue as to how I got this name. I had to be about six or seven. I was on the computer, not thinking somuch about what was happening on screen, but I was thinking about superheroes and bad guys and a whole bunch of random crap. Then out of nowhere I thought of the word 'asafigow'. When I started making stories, I thought I should use it for a haracters name, but instead I started to use it as my computer name. You can find my name in few places, here and there, bet never really in a place you would think to look. So yeah. That's my story.

Oh, now I feel dreadfully boring.

Mine? Because that's why my parents named me?

But if you wish for an etymological explanation...

Daniel is old Hebrew, made from the elements Dan-i-el. Dan is the Hebrew for 'Judge', and 'el' is an old name for God, originally the name of the Canaanite bull-god, and later adapted by the Hebrews. As such, the name means, technically, 'God is my judge', although one could also say 'God has vindicated me', as Leah does when her son Dan is born.

As for Krispin, this is a German version of the name Crispin, which comes up now and again in English. Far as I know, this probably is an adaption from a saint name (ie. Saint Crispin, patron saint of shoemakers, and upon whose day the battle of Agincourt was fought.) Crispin itself is from the Latin Crispinus, which means 'curly' (implying 'curly haired' I suppose.) I suppose my distant ancestors were peasants without a last name and, in taking one, merely appropriated one from a saint.

However, there are other names I'm wont to use on forums, and in particular on the IRC. For example, Alexaion, and that might have a more interesting etymology. That one is a Greek name that I pieced together (I've never seen it actually appear in ancient Greek texts.) Long, long ago when I first started posting on forums, my screen name was 'Guardian of Ages.' When I outgrew such a silly name, I nonetheless decided to retain it, save in a different language (I think I first used it, actually, in a mock story I wrote about another forum, which I set in ancient Athens and gave all my fellow forum posters names after the Greek.) Anyway, Alexaion is as close as I can get to Guardian of Ages. Alex, used as a prefix, means 'defender' (ie. Alexander = defender of men) ; Aion is the Greek word for an age, sometimes spelled in English as 'aeon'. Hence, Defender of the/a Age.

I've not gone by many other names. I think I might have at one time gone by Herald of Mandos on a forum here or there... Mandos being the keeper of the dead in Tolkien's world, and his herald (or he himself) the one that pronounces the judgement upon the Elf-lord Feanor and the other Noldorin exiles from Valinor.
Why must you do that?

This is for everyone to share their story behind their name. Laith.. it was just something I thought of at the time and it sounded cool. I later found out that it's actually a derka name.
But I'd like to know where all of you got your screen name or how you came up with it and why.

We've known each other for quite some time now and you've always been my number one. We've been going strong for three years now and they were the best three years of my life. You always know how to make me smile. You're so beautiful, so kind, so sweet, so caring, and just all around perfect. I'm willing to spend the rest of my life with you. We've been through so much together. We've had a few rough patches here and there but it only brought us closer to each other. FaFniR, I love you. I will do anything for you. I'm always here for you. You're my everything and will always be. I just have to know one thing...

Take your bullshit elsewhere, Laith.
