How/why did you choose your user name?

So how and/or why did you pick the user name you have?

Mine is indra, and part of the reason I chose it is because I'd just had a great conversation in chat (not the one attached to this site) with someone who used that as his nick, so it had good connotations for me. I also liked the sound of it, and I was trying to do a bit of gender-bending, but that didn't really work, as it seems to be feminine to most people here (see below for a bit about Indra).

Quote:

In Vedic times, Indra was the supreme ruler of the gods. He was the leader of the Devas, the god of war, the god of thunder and storms, the greatest of all warriors, the strongest of all beings. He was the defender of gods and mankind against the forces of evil. He had early aspects of a sun-god, riding in a golden chariot across the heavens, but he is more often known as the god of thunder, wielding the celestial weapon Vajra, the lightening bolt. He also employs the bow, a net, and a hook in battle. He shows aspects of being a creater god, having set order to the cosmos, and since he was the one who brought water to earth, he was a fertility god as well. He also had the power to revive slain warriors who had fallen in battle.

I have had gender bender confusion though. A number of people have thought I was an Eastern European boy.

When I was computer illiterate, my friend set up my first email account for me and picked a username of Menomineechick, Menominee being our hometown. I did not like it. Eventually, I got a new account, and since Bono is my favorite member of U2, I switched out Menominee for Bono...Bonochick.

Well I wanted The Fly like I have on some other forums, but I only joined here recently and it was taken. As I joined on the day when Vertigo was coming on the radio for the first time I just combined the two to make "Vertigo Fly" lol. Kinda a rushed name but it's Ok :-)

I'm not very creative - 'blue eyes' b/c I have blue eyes, & 123 on the end b/c blue eyes was already taken. I use blue eyes for most of my accounts.

Well, what can I say? I'm using this nickname on various forums and mailing lists since 1997, when I got an email address like that. It's a combination of my name (Martijn) and Popmart.

Easy, not?
