Wheres does Your name come from?
« on: 13 April 2008 01:07 PM »
There are alot of Difrferent Nicknames around here, so i thought maybe we could explain our names origen :muaha:

il go first: Titan is a name iv had all my life, old granny always calld me the 13th titan and was related to Greek mytholegy, but 3 yares ago old granny died and i started with Warhammer 40K and herd of the Titan legions of the Mechanicum. so i changed the backgrund of my name to match my Personel titan legion witch until 1 yare ago when Nightwish relised Dark Passion play with the Single: Amaranth. finding the name (and song) cuite cool i adopted it and changed from Titan ore The 13th Titan to: Titan-Amaranth. the Titan Legion was named: Legio Amaranthus.

thats the story behind Titan-Amaranth

whats yours?

Many moons ago, I was a member of a group of people who had formed a riding club for snowmobiles. At the time, my CB handle was Lucifer's Hammer', and they all started calling me Baelzebub instead. I shortened that when I started posting online at various sites...so BLZBUB came from there!
 And Baelzebub only became a Christian adoption around the time of Christ...so don't read anything into my name!  :wink:

mine was drawn from an old C64 computer game called Defender of the Crown. Philipp DeMalvoisin was the bad guy there along with the other Normans ;).

Therefore, Bajoran Berrie!

lrdnova is actually the second incarnation of this handle.

Originially way back when I went by the name Nova2012 which was representative of a Star going SuperNova and the year 2012.

then as time went on I dropped the numbers and went with Lrd (Lord for short) Nova.

and there you have it.

I have sense used this name for the better part of 15 years.

I love Star Trek which is why I picked my handle.

I tried several Admiral name combos until Admiral of Starfleet worked on StarTrek.com and have since used it on all other Trek sites I have joined.

I created Kinneas in 1993.

After almost twenty years of role playing in D&D, AD&D, Rifts, Forgotten Realms and Planescape...I was tired of creating new characters every year and wanted ONE final character.  Kinneas.  The cumulative character based on my years of rpg.

I dated a Greek girl in my late teens named Linea Kinnes.  I liked her last name but it did not have that Greek 'roll off the tongue' sound to it. It was abrubt...so initially it was to be  KinnAEAS. 

Anyway: Kinneas.

The Random Redshirt is not a new concept. Most people know what it is about. For a long time on websites, I kept to myself and didn't post much, therefore being the nameless "Random Redshirt" in the forum crowd was fitting. That changed a bit with STOnet however.
