Re: How'd you pick your nick?

Interesting topic this one
Swampy i presumed was because of the area lived in
Kraellin i have often wondered about, and thought it was from a book like Lord of the Ring or a Terry Pratchett type novel
lkroll I never quite get if it is a L or a I first so will now try Lyle
Saby please don't take this the wrong way but i could pronounce Saby but not your proper name so i will stick with your nickname

Mine is just that a family nickname taken from our surname, call Palms out round here and you would get 4+ replies

Has anybody misread names ? I read Cameraken as one word for ages pronounced cam era ken (like Cameron) then realised it was Camera Ken Duh

Palms

I should have used a capitol 'K'

I used to be a member of a motorcycle group. There were two members called Ken. So, to avoid confusion, I got nicknamed Camera-Ken 'cus I sell and repair cameras. The name stuck and now everyone calls me CameraKen.

Ken.

It's ok Palms, My first English teacher called me Sam because my name -especially the last to letters (CS) what is actually one in Hungarian- couldn't pronounced in English. If U want to tell it, Sub_Olch sounds the colsest to it.

Re: How'd you pick your nick?

Here's my story
My son plays games on the internet, and although he's moved onto Quake wars ect now, he used to play Jedi knight muti player, and his "nick" was Flyingbrit...I couldn't resist when he was at school, and I was on the right shift I used to play as either "oldfart" or "britsdad" and it's sort of stuck (this was in the days of 56k)

Re: How'd you pick your nick?

Ever since I was about 6 years old I have collected sports cards. Mostly baseball but some football and basketball as well. I used to participate in a lot of sports memorabilia and card shows. Cardmn is just a truncated version of "card man" which I was called because I had so many sports cards (I still have thousands upon thousands). Al is just short for Alan. Put them together and you get cardmnal

Re: How'd you pick your nick?

Mine's just my email address set up by a previous employer. It's so easy to remember that I have been using it ever since. And yes, I remember prodigy. It was bought out by SWBT, who changed to SBC, and is now AT&T. I still have my prodigy account and email address, even though it is owned by AT&T.
