Where does YOUR name come from?

Postby unamoosed » Fri Aug 09, 2013 10:49 pm

I'm curious to know why some of you chose the usernames you did and thought it'd be fun for people to share the origins of their name.

I'll start:

This is Jared Padalecki. He plays Sam Winchester in Supernatural and he makes some of the sassiest faces I have ever seen. Also, I love moose.

My totem animal (Swan) and one of my favorite Celtic goddesses, Branwen, which translates to White Raven. She was one of the daughters of Lyr, a Celtic king, which also ties into a fairy tale where he turned his children into swans. I would go by Swan just by itself, but I thought it needed something else. I'm big on Irish/Celtic mythology and I'm a Pagan Eclectic Witch.

SBTB helped to define the early 90s. We all need a little Zach Attack every now and then. I'm digging your username.

As for me, Latzi was a long gone friend and I use the name as a way to remember him.

Postby machstormer » Sun Aug 18, 2013 9:42 pm

I created the name "machstormer" about 37 years ago.
It was the name of a ship in a story i wrote back then.
No, you cannot read the story.(destroyed about 36 1/2 years ago, LOL)
No, I will NOT tell you what it was about.
Yes, the story totally sucked. (and that's if I was being NICE about it)
This was the ONLY original name I created.
All other ship names I "borrowed" from dictionaries and encyclopedias at the library. (don't judge, I was only 7)

*update*
Sorry Roy, you cannot read it because it no longer exists.
The ONLY reason why it survived for 6 months is because of Isaac Asimov.
Yes, THAT Isaac Asimov.
Yes, the ONLY author to have written a book in 9 out of 10 categories of the Dewey Decimal System.
Yes, the guy who wrote over 500 books using approximately 40 different pseudonyms (only about 1/3 were fiction).
Anyway, back to my story.
In a magazine article, he advised new writers to put their manuscripts away for about 6 months.
Then take it out, and judge/criticize it as if you were reading it for the first time.
I started reading it in the morning.
By noon, it was only a very small pile of ash. :lol:
