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.)

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

As so many others in literature and film  ;D

 ;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.  :)

I got nothing on mine, I am a pretty random spastic person so that explains it. Even though I hate eating with sporks. *Shrug*

It's a combination of a fork and an spoon, if I'm correctly. Kind of like a spoon, with those fork endings on the... end.
It's hard to explain, really. :P

My great great grandfather's sister's aunt's daughter's cousin's great great grandchild (me) crossed the frigid Atlantic in 1999 running away from oppression in Yugalslavia to the free land of America and I stopped in Ireland on my way and made it to the end of a rainbow and as the first boy ever to get the pot of gold the leperchaun's labeled me GoldenGuy. And it's stuck with my ever since.

Alright then! That's one of the more amazing stories to came up with a nickname over here! :O

Here's a picture of a spork for those who do not know what it is. A combined spoon, knife and fork.

Salome Toums is not my real name.  It's my pseudonym. 

The name Salome is from the bible.  It means Peace.  Ironically...Salome was the wife of King Harrod who ordered the beheading of John the Baptist (what a woman, eh?).  I chose it mainly for the meaning, and not so much the biblical history.

It's so interesting to read where everyone comes up with the inspiration for their names!

My profile name is one of my many names - probably my favorite. Luisa just sounds so pretty to me.

I thought already I've recognised your name from somewhere.
My name is actually mythological. But in my case Leto WAS a woman. Guess my parents wanted a daughter. :P

Welcome to the forum. And for you too Luisa. French, am I right?

Let's just say, the first incarnation, DarkBr33D originated from the "Creatures Exodus" branch of the first commercial artificial life franchise, involving gremlin-esque, subsentient, furry creatures called, Norns. The name DarkBr33D was the name I used to register my worlds for Docking Station. The name evolved with elite-speak, with Spore in 2009, as DarkBr33D. The same name was used for thesims3.com, in 2010 and a year later, D4rkN1X on modthesims.info. That's why I chose this name, to retain my internet dynasty.

I have absolutely no idea where my username hails from. I think it was 6 years ago, and I was really obsessed with a classic sci-fi movie series (Can I say copyrighted things here?) I was signing up for my first MMORPG and was trying names from this series. They didn't work. But somehow I stumbled onto "Sddwe1" and stuck with it ever since.
