Mine is influenced by Tolkiens books a little, but in general I made it up. That`s the only story behind my name!
Ive been using it everywhere on the internet for a loooong time . And although its a great name (IMO) Im getting a little bored of it already.

I have a poster hanging above my computer at home that is an old advertisment of a Muhammad Ali fight. For any forum or anything like this, I'm lazy and just pick the name of one of the undercards. In this case Earnie Shavers, the "hardest punching heavyweight in the world!" I think I may go now and find out if he won.

I wanted to originally be PrincessAngelinaContessaLouisaFrancescaBananaFannaBoBescathethird.

but that was too long

I had typed in myusernamehere as a place holder until I could come up with something shorter. Then I got distracted by something shiny and hit submit.

1. An old "I wish he was my boyfriend but really he just wanted to be friends" friend used to call me this WAY back in high school... and the nickname stuck amongst a group of friends.

2. Much of my life was defined by the fact that I suffer from severe clinical depression (Which does not mean I'm SAD at all, so it's kind of a smart ass thing)

3. I was having a bad day when I registered

I actually like my name cuz it throws people off a little... I'm actually a very light-hearted and fun loving person with a goofy and slightly overactive sense of humor.

But I think you and I may have had this discussion before, RR?

"Verte" is the feminine version of the French word for green. I got it from medieval heraldry. The 76 is from my country's birth year, 1776; I'm a history freak.

youtwohearts is for U2 2 hearts. It was the first unreleased song I heard that made me go out and buy War, October and Boy and become a huge fan.

Two Americas was the working title for the Joshua Tree album. But they changed it to the Joshua Tree, after going to the Joshua Tree Park and realizing what the tree meant in the bible, or something like that.

Two Americas still would have been an appropriate title, considering the songs Bullet the Blue Sky and Mothers of the Disappeared dealt with South America issues. Plus, Jara is referred in the song One Tree Hill. Jara was some sort of political figure in South America.

This is so cool to find out!

BrazilianFly, i always found your name to be really cool, especially with the rockon smiley under it, adds an extra "je ne sais quoi"

My name is a lyric out of "A man and a woman" , love the song, love those lyrics, and it fits me, since well, my soul seems to be waiting...and having fun, having bad times and all the stuff in between that...hopefully growing as life progresses.
Whoa, heavy talk

Also, LOL, TheBrazilianFly...wow, I never woulda guessed that one....

Hmm, I didn't even realize that until now.

Interestingly enough, I got into Audrey Hepburn around the same time I got into U2.
