I used to watch it, but stopped soon before Aang had to go into the final battle against the Firebenders.
I can barely remember their names now. Aang, Toph, Zuku... I remembered the other two (The Waterbender and her brother), but I forgot them before I typed. :P

Aang, Toph, Zuko, Katara, and Sokka. Well, I'm glad I'm not alone here. I thought I was the only one who knew about it.

I love films and used to play games like Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate quite a lot.

When I decided to create a nickname, I combined these two things I like, from the film Romeo + Juliet (directed by Baz Luhrmann 1996) and the type of weapon named 'Longsword' in DnD computer games.

"Longsword" is also name for a shotgun in Romeo + Juliet, where in the film they converted the weapons to modern guns but continue the legends and 'personality' from old time weapons.

So I somehow connected the relationships and simply called myself Romeo Longsword and I have been using it for ten years now, but I have been rejected by a certain group of game players before because they did not think I was serious with that name.

Baldur's gate, nice. The game reminds me of Lands of Lore 2. Welcome to the forum romeolongsword.
May you find the gameplay knowledge here where you are looking for (my attempt of talking Medieval style).

SeventhSanctum is where I got my username.

I generated it a few years ago when I was looking for an exotic name for my Nightelf hunter and it kind of stuck ever since.

Now I use it nearly everywhere I go.

since my name is soraya alot of people tend to shorten it to So, Sos or Soso. the Soso stuck with me and the baggins came after watching The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, when Frodo and the gang where in the bar/tavern and  i cant remember which one of the hobbits ...but he called out "i know a Baggins, Frodo Baggins", i just really liked phrase and kept repeating over and over, til my then boyfriend added Soso to Baggins, hence the name sosobaggins....takes a breathe...lol

Well... I was 14, when I came by a short story for school. It was about a superhero, a ninja-trained fellow with cybernetic self-implanted enhancements, who, in a dystopic future, fight against a megalomaniac CEO of a great corporation for personal revenge and for the freedom of his (now oppressed under the megacorp) city. He, like almost every hero, (on second thoughts, he was really a anti-hero, because he was dark in many ways), adopted a secret identity, know only as The Avenger Warrior, or simply Avenger. That character, was my favorite of all times, and thats is where my nick-name comes from. The '0000' is from my second and most lasting e-mail.

To start with mine: Leto came from the book Dune. I know there is also a Jared Leto (who is named after me Tongue) and a female Leto person in the Greek mythologie, but originally Leto came from Dune. 85 is the year I was born. 1985, for in case someone wanted to know that more precise.
 

When I first read your name, the only thing that came to my mind was: "Duke Leto Atreides". One of the best or the best character from the book Dune (IMHO).

I've never read the book. But I've heard Leto was a king in that story. Never thought it to be a middle name.

You should really read the book or watch one of the movies to have a good view of the character.  He was awesome.


My name is because my cousins stopped calling me Erica and started calling me Rica.   It then became a thing to add my middle name and Ricalynn was born.  It just rolls off the tongue to the point that most of my family will call me that.  When they actually use the E and say the middle name that's when I know I'm in trouble.  ;D

Duke is his title, not name, so Leto is still the first name. His grandson is also named Leto, and his title was God-king, so that may be where you got that.

As for my name, it's my character from Lord of the Rings Online. ;)

Amen to that!  :o
I was wondering if I dared myself to say that, but I see you've taken the words out of my mouth Jeanamariex3! :D
In my country I'm glad to say there are still a lot of people who like mixed bloodlines. I'm just not the only one! :) Mixed bloodlines can result in so much incredible beauty... so incredible, ... that I'm almost finding myself offtopic here. :(

I used to play World of Warcraft quite a bit, and my Druid there is called Caswallon.  Everyone shortened it to Cas.  Caswallon is an old Celtic name - I first came across it myself in one of David Gemmell's novels, The Hawk Eternal and always liked it.

My profile name came from Twyla Summers, the female burglar of Sunset Valley.
I know she has an evil trait but feel like more friend than an enemy from her frequent visits to steal.
She is a funny neighbourhood of mine. 
Very hard to be escaped from Sims.
