Or perhaps not born for another 561 years ;)

Internet is fast these days. Messages tend to arive years earlier than they are posted.
I wonder how long it will take until some other mod will notice some members here (and one mod I don't dare to recall) are heading offtopic. :P

You seem to be the only one offtopic. I am still talking about my username as you said it was not my date of birth and I said that would make me  -561, so my username numbers cannot be my date of birth.
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.  :D

Well I will keep to topic 8)

Obviously my profile name comes from mythology, Roman to be exact and was the daughter of Jupiter. Minerva has been referred to as the goddess of wisdom, war, art, schools and commerce.
I chose this for fun a long time ago and funnily enough through life I have worked as a bookkeeper, banker and a teacher :P

Sorry, but I had to point this out. Minerva is also a teacher on Harry Potter! ^_^

I like you. :)
Not many people dare to say that so directly.

@Minverva: I thought I'd recognize that name somewhere now I read it! Our nickies are both mythological: though mine is from Greek.

It tends to get me in trouble a lot. But thank you. :)
People seem to have a lot of mythological nicknames. I have one too (not on this forum, but a different one), where my nickname is Athena.

(Whoever doesn't know who Athena is: She is the Goddess also referred to as Pallas Athena. She is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. Minerva is Athena's Roman incarnation.)

 ;D ;D ;D Harry Potter was the first thing I thought of. I can't think of where else I have heard the name Minerva other than in Mythology.

Sorry, my computer accidently posted it and then I had internet problems. I am going to finish editing it now.

Well, seeing as how I just spent I don't know how much time reading this entire thread (It was very interesting) I figured I may as well post on it!

My nickname was given to me by a very close friend back in the days before broadband. We used to hang out in a chat room for fans of the TV show Babylon 5. She decided it was appropriate for me based on my personality. Anteros is the Greek God of Unrequited Love, brother of Eros. No, I am not Greek.   :D

Well I have always used words beginning with K for my gaming profiles and somehow Krrank became my favorite. So now I use it for everything.  :)
