Posted:I like lightning. It's a cool phenomenon that makes flashes of bright, beautiful light in the night. It's a simple, easy-to-remember name. And I have a blinking EL glow wire suit that makes me look like a walking lightning storm.

Posted:Ash is the remains of something that burns, and I have been likened to a burning phoenix on several occasions, by some very good friends. Its also derived from Ashlyn, which is Irish Gaelic for Dream Quester

Blackstar comes from the Heraldry of the SCA kingdom of Ansteorra, which is my home kingdom.

Also, I just like the way it flows, and my good friend Sezurei says that Ash suits me

Posted:mine is a combo of the first part of my first name (Vance) and last part of my last name. apparently also the name of some heavy metal band here in Germany (unfortunate coincidence, and I'm sure they pronounce it differently anyway).

my first name supposely means something like "thresher" or "resident of a windmill" in old dutch, but no one dutch has ever heard of the word and the last name Vance seems to be more of english/scottish/irish origin (there is even a Vance tartan and coat of arms). I was named after the airforce base I was concieved on, which in turn was named for an american fighter pilot ace and metal of honor recipient from the second world war.

Posted:Spanner is what I was called at school, because it rhymes with my real name.

I use it here because it it means "One who, or that which, spans" and I use my (admittedly rather short) arm span to spin smile

Posted:SpitFire was given to me as a stage name by a very dear friend, who also happens to be one of the best fire breathers I've met....and one of the best performers I've known. The man has natural stage presence. People NOTICE him.

ANYWAY....he gave me the name when he introduced me as an honorary member of his troupe....and said the name matched my personality perfectly.

Posted:comes from my real name which is Rhiannon. Non is just one of the many variations of ways of shortening my name basically, but not many people know that so it seemed like a good version for the internet..... although you all do now.... not that it matters, i was figured out the first time i tried it, and couldn't see a point in changing it. As for the bizarre combo of capital letters, well that was just bad typing that stuck...

it also means no in french. but this piece of information is quite unrelated.

Which just makes it sound bad... umm
