OT: Screen Names

Most threads I read are full of potentially interesting screen names. We’ve all looked at them and wondered what’s the story, if any, behind them.

There’s the potentially obvious, like people’s names: Kenneth Arthur, Colin O’Keefe, Logan Davis, Scott Weber, Nathan Bishop, etc.

And other obvious one’s like HitItHere, Ballard Eric, Griffey’s Butt, The Typical Idiot Fan, and so on.

But then there’s the not so obvious, like Aly Edge (although we discussed this last week and got a bit of the scoop), Shmelix Shmernandez, Cascadian Man, LeftArrow2, qrsouther, joof, Goose, Twelveof10, ThundaPC, SeattleJunkieQueen, Morgoth, Chris_FB, Ride The Apocalypse, kennerdoloman, TJDirk, wetzelcoal, Pacific Northwest Vagabond, Sidi, and many more.

I know there are a few names out there that have piqued your interest. I wonder what goes through your mind when reading these names? What do you envision the name’s owner to be like and why did they pick that name? Let’s keep this light and fun and maybe some of you will be willing to share the reasoning behind choosing the screen name you have.
