My name is a tribute to people that made me who I am today.. times long gone.. and friends lost.

It is a name I've carried for five years now.. and at last I feel ready to change. As from today, I am no longer Bjorn190. Or so I hope.

Goodnight world,

Well there's a very short story to my name. As many noticed it's not the nick I use reguralery.

Me and my friend wanted to create 2 new accounts for Warcraft III, to start ATing together. We came up with the names Rodent Molestor and Rodent snowa. I just kept the Rodent part for this nick.

Quote:
is derived from Bulgarian (Slavic) "ogun" - fire, and "slava" - glory, worship.
So, Ogneslav means "Who he worshipps fire", "Fire-worshipper".
I choose this name, because I am Slavic pagan and Fire is one of main Slavic heathen forces, elements and deities.
There are 5 Slavic fiery deities and fiery cult was among the essential in the Slavic religion.


The name of the Norse god Odin (or Woden) also means 'fire worshiper'. And according to the norwegian version of Erich von Däniken, Thor Heyerdal, Odin should have travelled through the slavic areas with his mighty army when fleeing from the Romans who chased him out of Azov, in Ukraine...

BTW, my username, terje the mad wizard, I chose coz my first name is terje, and I love wizards... and I'm kinda mad...


EDIT: Not to mention that it's the most n00bish handle in all of HC...
Oh well, at least it's not SHOUTED.

Mine is NOT from HOMM or M&M. Actually it is from Civ2. When I retired after playing it for the 1st time, I got the rank "**** the ironfist".
BTW, I think Civ2 is the best game ever.

posted February 21, 2003 03:10 AM

IYY is the simplest name ever, it's the initials of my first name, my father's name (Russian names have that instead of middle name) and my last name. I think I first used it at some racing game when I had to think of a name fast and couldn't come up with anything more original. Then a few years later (around 5 years I guess) I used those initials to make something like Tolkien's signature (where the letters are combined to make a rune-like symbol). When I needed to come up with a name for this forum I just chose that name because I used that symbol as an avatar at the time.

I have a birthmark on my neck that ripples when I smile, making it look like I have gills, thus my nickname is Aquaman. As for the 333, three is my lucky number.

how come I missed this thread...

for those of you who don't know it, "Lith Maethor" means "Ash Warrior" in Sindarin, the language of a Moriquenti sub-race of Middle Earth...

if you ask why, well... being somewhat of a pyromaniac, one of my high school nicknames was Ash... when I got into fantasy and after I took an interest in Tolkien's work, i decided to change it to its Elven form...

Khaelo (kah-EH-lo) means "peace" in the language I use for ritual.  Peace is one realm of my patron god.  When plain Khaelo isn't available, I'll add Imbi, which means "watery" or "liquid."

Now that i think about it, I have no idea how I came up with the name "Dingo."


Maybe you have an obsession with Australian wild dogs?

Its kinda obvious where I got my name from. I was obsessed with the game DooM, so I just added the word freak on the end. I don't play DooM much anymore, so whenever I sign up at a new forum, I use the name Crispin, which is a name of a flaming zombie from Timesplitters 2.
