    My name are lifted off from my real name, Zuleffendi. It is much easier to represent your self in the internet world. Kevenn said that I should use this name as a professional name in the music industry. I will use this name until Fendi (the Fashion brand) Decide to kick me off with a lawsuit regarding this name.

    My other name are: zack2k, Blackened (Lifted off from Metallica) and StaticClone!

    I had no choice really, "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s". No hard feelings though, fully understandable.

    My name is the title of a Beatles song on the White Album. This song has always been special to me as the two characters in the song are Daniel and Nancy, which are my name and the name of my ex-girlfriend. Also, the song is just damn good!

    What a cool origin for your username. I had wondered where it came from. That painting is fantastic!

    Awesome. Gotta love ol' Uncle Scrooge. I remember visiting my relatives in Portugal (Sao Miguel) years ago and sitting on the black sand beach reading all my of my cousin's Portuguese Scrooge McDuck comic books. Good times.

    That's a great song. My husband Garou loves it. He also loves chasing raccoons.

I knew from then she was kick ass and someone I would like to be. You can read about her in the books of the bible that never made it into the King James Bible.
    As my New Testament professor always said (in his cool New Zealand Accent) - "You should read the Apocrypha. It won't harm you." And I think maybe one of my study Bibles has that painting as an illustration.

    Its my old Xbox profile name and I kind of use it across all boards now for simplicity. I can't remember if it came about because one of my cats was hungry and bugging me when I was filling out my profile or if its because my spirit animal is the Puma and I was hungry. Either is a likely origin really

    Really!?!
    I have been looking for that painting for years (outside the art museum) and it was never on the net until now. I'm glad that people outside of Ohio could see it as well.

    Mine is just something a friend of mine says when he's amused or mildly disgusted about something. He'll just shake his head and say something like "wow....captain wow".

    Haha you had me there for a sec. I really thought you where a doctor, how funny would that be

    My real name is Ralf. But my friends always call me kk2.
    The letter k is pronounced as ka (with the a as in after)
    So the first part kaka than 2 is similar sounding as the dutch 'toe' >> kakatoe witch is the dutch name for the bird cockatoo.

    I got this name for having my hair yellow and blue.
    A friend of mine, whose name is also Ralph, entered the surfclub, I had the yellow/blue hair, the radio was playing a commercial witch ended with a cockatoo saying 'kakatoe, kakatoe'. Since that day he called me kakatoe (kk2 is the way I write it). And then everybody else started to use this nickname for me. At first it bothered me, witch resulted in even more friends calling me kk2. Eventually it didn't bother me any more...
    Now a days a lot of people even don't know my real name haha

    Why would that be funny?

    My nickname comes from my first electric guitar, which is an Epiphone Casino (a model used by the Beatles and actually, my avatar is a pic of John Lennon playing his).

    Why, c'mon a doctor whose name is Payne, that's funny.

    I know what a Epiphone Casino is. I like that guitar.
    I have an Epiphone Les Paul, but I'm not playing much.

    During some of this board's earliest days, I didn't see much talk of the Roboto character. When it upgraded and I had to rejoin, I discovered the group Styx who performed the song Mr. Roboto. I thought it'd be a great reference to both MOTU and Styx.

    No, I'm not a Spok fan!! I'm not a Star Trek fan nor have I ever seen a single episode. This is merely my last name. It's Czech!!! And a million $$$ to whoever can pronounce it correctly. And you're lucky there's at least 1 vowel. The Czech language way back in the day never had vowles and were basically told to start putting vowels in the language to better understand.

    I thought you were a dentist

    If I was a dentist and my last name was Payne, I would not put it in my advertising, I can tell you that.

    Years ago, there was a Blur song "TrimmTrabb", which was named after a rare style of Adidas shoe. I liked both the song and the shoes and began using the moniker in various online forums.
    Now, I no longer have those shoes and can't recall the last time that I listened to that song. The name, however, has stuck.

    Boy and girl going about their everyday school activities. The sounds of japanese drums, a haunted mansion on the outskirts of school, a sacrifice, boy and girl warp to a mystical land know as Madara. I am Madara Shadowriver, the river that flows.

    It's beautiful and lyrical.

    I'd like to know more.
