Posted:well hello. now that we have the whipping boy thing straightened out.... (what would it take for me to get me own whipping boy... there's quite a character down the street...

ah don't mind me. Kyrian is sort of a made up name (a little googling this eveing prompted me to belive it has star trek relevance, but) i think it's an unconcious derivative of my friends brothers name, kieren. i love the sound of the other boys names too... cormac, rory, and brendan, gotta love the irish

on the other hand, is brendan irish? it doesn't sound it. well, what do i know, right?

my emails area a little odder "mandmmadness" is just a play on how the letter m keeps having weird effects on my life. "spiffylitlechair" is because spiffy is a good word, litle is splet that way in my friends nickname, and i needed a random naem no one would haev, hence chair. for some reason i only use kyrian on discussion boards. oh, and my aim is different, Phoenix for the obvious reason, rising frmo teh ashes, M is for that damn letter again, 3 is one of two lucky numbers, and 18 was teh then age of a certain person, one who was most influential in teaching me not to hate anyone.

other nicknames: heffs, hefferella, stitler, crazy, random steph girl, playa, doormat.

Posted:Well my little story starts from an early age so pull up a chair... you see when I was just a little taller than a grasshopper knee I got my hands on to my first ever lighter... and you see... I HAD this really cool teddy bear... and the smell of burning teddy fur can real (a) catch on fire and (b) catch the attention of your parents... boy did I have a sore a**.Then I learn't how to make the flame on a lighter grow... heeheehee... and then I found out that fly spray is highly flameable... I tell you... No flies ever came into our house again... So I guess thats how I got it... I was just a little Arsn... Or a little s*** head... which ever...

Posted:My name is made up. I made it up about 5 years ago when I was at uni and started going on line.

I had a girly name to start with and got sick of the responses I got to it. So I made up a name which was unisex (I thought) and Splerph stuck with me ever since.

Everyone asks what it means, I think because its made up you can give it can mean whatever you want it to. (unless its mean and horrible about me coz that'll make me cry)

The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.-- Ken Kesey

Posted:Well, mine is boring. My name is Mike. My last name starts with the letters "Gin." (Hard "G" sound, not a "J" sound).

So ever since elementary school, people have called me "Ginny" (hard "G" sound, not "J" sound!).

The other name I sometimes use is DocLightning (although not on this board). The reason is that I am training to be a doctor and I love bright shiny things (fire, glowsticks, glow wire, LED's, etc.)

Posted:Stella comes from a crazy messed up story my friend wrote about all of our group of friends. It involved an evil math teacher stealing her kingly crown and holding it in has castle in the land of boredom. There were a lot of names we gave our selves based on things we discovered in grade nine science. And there were lots of aardwolves. And yeah basically we were crazy and insane with our adventures from the Nimage Realm, and our nick names were about 12 names long. Mine was: Stellar Stella the spunky sky goddes / lyrisist. My other friend was Ekeus Caloric Erlenmeyer the faerie princess king, her royal majesty and ruler of the Land of Suck. And Arnica Kelvin Kinetic, the Nimage King was the writer. Only recently have i found out i am ACTUALLY a king as well, but i cant remember of what. so i like stella. its a good name anyway.

Posted:Trippy Hippy, hhhmmmm, my nickname came from a good friend of mine who always used to say that i wore "Hippy Shit" this then evolved when i got in to the drugs scene and he refered to me as that "Tripping Hippy" and thus "Trippy Hippy" was born. Not very exciting i'm afraid.
The Labyrinth, What a movie, i watched it the night before last,
"It reminds me of a child"....
"WHAT CHILD???"......."A voodoo child"
I love that film!!!!!

Posted:Hey Enlliw, oh, wow, someone who actually knows Welsh! Question for ya, any idea what the name Wrynn could possibly mean? (It's my SO's last name, I call him the Amazing Technically Vowel-less One sometimes) It is incredibly hard to find Welsh translations and I get nosy about that sort of thing.

And to keep the thread going... the way my name started, I have very tiny hands with long fingers and I like to make them skitter spider-like over things (I dunno, it just amuses me, freaks the hell out of my BF tho). I tend to wear tons of silver rings as well. So my hands often kind of look like silver spiders. Otherwise physically I am on the covered-in-silver-jewelry-tiny-long-and-spindly side as well. For my costuming and corsetting stuff I use the name Carapax since that is the word for the semi rigid exoskeleton that spiders have.

I have a pretty strong affinity to spiders for various and sundry reasons, so all of my user names tend to be in the same vein (spidhands, silverspider, sterlingspider, argentarachnid, itsibitsispider, carapax etc). For some reason I am the great un-nicknamable one (really, it just never never works) I guess most people feel that Lorena (which most closely rhymes with Maureen) is different enough and it doesn't shorten well.

Posted:Hehehe, my nick has nothing to do with fire! seriously! i was in grade um.... somewhere mid highschool, and our teacher was describing the effect light has when it hits a prism and is kind of shattered into colour, like peices of Flint. Having a strange affinity for the letter y in the middle of words, i quickly snapped it up!

And my other nick is Zephyr, taken from a shakespearian sonnet, "The zephyr through the violet!"
A zephyr is a gentle breeze....
Soooooo Flynt Zephyr = Light into Colours floating through the Air!
hehehee, its also the name of an intergalactic princess. but thats a whole nother story....

family nicks have included, Racego (i now have a small business called racegobare), penfold, podge, stackhat, helmetgirl and other humiliating little nicks.....

Currently on the right side up of the world.
