where do your nicknames come from?

mine is rather random really. I like the sound of moog, so added this as my "surname" pat was just completely random

One of my favorite guitars has always been the Gibson Les Paul. (so NO my name is NOT Paul, I get that a lot), and the numbers are because my dad has a Vintage Reissue 1959 Goldtop Les Paul, but when I first created this name on AIM, 1959 and 59 and 059 were taken, so 1059 was a nice availabillity

1059 - that's one old school Gibson! ;)

Durga is the name of a Star Wars character from a novel that came out about 10 years ago. He was a Hutt. I just liked the way the name sounded when I was coming up with a screen name 6 or 7 years ago.

As for the rest, I was in a rush so I just banged randomly on my number keypad.

Mine dates WAY back. I was a HS teacher back in 1997. I was teaching US history and we were covering WWII. We had just finished with 1944 when I got my Yahoo email address. I wanted Overlord, since that was what the allied invasion of Europe was called - Operation Overlord. However, it was taken, so I settled on OpOverlord. I've always used it since then.

I go by Poey in real life as well.


It's not my REAL name, but it's what I go by.

Druid has always been an alias of mine (ever since reading Terry Brooks's Shannara series) and then i got into Glass Hammer, and DruidsHammer was taken, so i went with what i have now.

This is actually a floppable mirror palindrome- well done! Few people can even write a normal one or get the concept of any type of exotic palindrome.
I've been writing them since 1977 and they show perception, literacy in general and huge smarts.

If I find my list from then: my birthday win in Edmonton Journal (June 10/77) I'll post some. The fifty Canuck-bucks I won back then I spent immediately on a woman!

My nick you can get from my naming my RPG "heroes" as anti-heroes: totally clumsy, cheesoid regular guys who trip a lot and fall on their own swords., i.e. worm food: bug lunch. :smt118 :smt040'
Also, click on a basic orc grunt or peon repeatedly in Warcraft 1 and eventually he will say my name out loud clearly and goofily!

I was hasty: since it does not read same backward as forward it's not a palindrome, but it is a neat floppable. The Edmonton journal bit is in the bedroom but there's this mess... :oops: :shock:

Dain Icyhammer - plugged my real name into a LoTR name generator and it spat this out. Thought it was mildly cool, plus I didn't have to burn any brain cells coming up with something else :roll:
