    Story of the name

    I thought it might be interesting if members told the stories of what their forum names mean and how they came to choose them. I often wonder...

    I chose 'bluemax' because that is what I came to call my current computer after I built it. Blue - because the case I chose has blue leds to light it in that color. Max - because it is so much more powerful than its predecessor. For those not familiar the avatar is the character Little Max from the book 'Where the Wild Things Are' except I've colored him blue.
    - Mark

    Cool thread! I chose Shortbus because I spend alot of time gaming and a version of "Shortbus" has been my name in that community for years. Among the underlying implications of this name, I like it beacuse it's memorable and in a crowd if someone yelled out "hey shortbus whats up?" I would look because: this how they know me by.

    I chose lil hokie because my friends in college (not at Virginia Tech whom are the Hokies but at UNC Charlotte (the 49ers)) gave me the nickname "lil hokie monster" because of my apparent obsession with VT. My dad went to college there and I have grown up with its influence haha. I have a ton of different screen names all over the internet.

    Cthulhu because I'm a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan and I love monsters. So, what better than Lovecraft's most iconic horror creation, Cthulhu ? 138 from one of my favorite Misfits songs "We Are 138" which is about George Lucas's first movie "THX-1138", a futuristic movie where we're ruled by android Gestapo like police. I guess "138" was just easier to work into the song lyrics than "1138"

    Mine is incredibly complicated, but here goes:

    Sundew (my favorite CP when I registered) + Drew (my name) = Sundrew

    I thought it was a clever pun, and I enjoy it.

    LOL - I might be able to top that. Mine are the initials from 1st & last name followed by last 4 digits of our home phone*.

    * which I'm probably going to eliminate due to the constant flow of robo-spam calls
