    Default What does your name mean?

    Hi this is one i saw on the weebls-stuff forums, i thought i would ask it here.

    what does your name mean (thats your forum name, i'm not trying to track you down). I'll start us off:

    Sam de Cheese

    Sam means Sam, it's my name (believe it or not)

    "de" is french for "of".

    Cheese is a dairy product that is made by... um... I really should know.... anyway cheese is awsome, u gotta have cheese

    so, put together, its Sam of Cheese. It's what they had in ye middle ages, like "Arthur de Caldicot" which would mean he's somone called Arthur, from Caldicot, who is important enough for a title.

    was this just a little condescending?

    my name comes with a long story several years ago (like 12 or 15) some friends and I were joking about a nice guy evil warlord that had health benefits, day care, profit sharing etc. for his minions. we decided to name him after one of the 4 horsemen of apocalypse we were even making a script for the idea and I worked up a simple webpage (long since disappearing into the ether) since pestilence was still waiting to take off in his world defeating schemes my name became pestilenceawaits and I have used it on various threads forever now.

    I found an avatar up for adoption (kind of) I really liked back when we could alter our names, and named myself "The Orange Zergling". Then I had to make a new account to accomodate the board switch... so I put in the name that I was before the switch.

    Series of random syllables. That I came up with when thinking up a character name on DDO, I now use it for a few sites.

    A few factors went into choosing my name. "Average Joe" is a phrase meaning a regular guy. You know, "Just your average Joe." I don't know if I could be considered an average joe, but it isn't like there's a strict definition of the qualities of an average Joe. Basically I wanted to have a "real" name, but in such a way so that it wouldn't necessarily be my name. I also considered Joe Cool, but I'm too humble for that, Jack Robbinson (as in, faster than you can say Jack Robinson), which I'm not altogether sure I shouldn't have done, and Fancy Dan, but I felt that was too obscure, and a few others.

    Vaynor is my first D&D character, and the name I generally use on teh internets. Gnome druid ftw!

    the awareness of all that he did not know, of all that he had not read;
    and the serenity for which he labored was shattered as he realized the
    little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know.”

    For a moment I thought this was a "real life what is your name" thread, and was all prepared to offer evidence why Katherine means 'torture' and is an ode to an evil goddess rather than 'peace' or whatever the beejeebie my mother claimed. Ah well, go back in your corner, literary historian!

    Anyway, Voleta. Feminine bastardization of vole, an adorable little mouse-like creature that will bite the canoodle out of your hand when you try to mess with it. Why such a name? I was playing a gnome warrior in Everquest. She, like me, was petite and adorable, and kind to everyone. Friendly to a fault. But, if you mess with her (or me) the wrong way, i will do everything I possibly can to make you, and everyone you care about, wish you had never been born. Course, the hatred and murdering stops after about two seconds, but for a little while there.. BEWARE! Cue evil laughter.

    I did NOT actually get Bingo Bob from West Wing, it was a name that popped into my head in 6th grade, when I was doodling to see how many different ways I could kill a stickman. The number got up there, and eventually he got a name, that I used when I came to the forum.

    My ACTUAL name means either 'Victory' or 'A young hound'. Guess which one my ancestry used. Bloody Celtic ancestors...

    Walking besides the mini-forest in my school, and all of sudden BOOM! two of my friends appear from the forest and informs me that my last name "hides" the name "ufo".

    I eventually adopted it through my years on the innernet/intarnet/KABOOMnet.

    And don't capitalize the "u", or you may face trouble involving loss of insestines.

    2. Alt. Spelling: \Gurt\, n. (Mining) A gutter or channel for water, hewn out of the bottom of a working drift. Usage; "Hey Gerrtt, make sure you clean that gurt out or the water will get backed up and we'll have a nasty mess on our hands."

    Amiria was just a nice-sounding combination of phonemes that came to my mind when I needed a name for one of my favorite (A)D&D characters many years ago.

    But some moons ago I discovered that it is a real female Maori name and means "industrious". And it is actually fitting for that character. She is a very industrious little transmutress and reached 18th level before her 20th birthday. She is always adventuring or researching spells or or making magic items. But as a result of this, Amiria also has little social life. You may meet her in her tower in the Town where she lives quite reclusive and hasn't ventured from it for a long time. Formerly she used to go to Trog's Tavern often and chatted, drank cocktails and sometimes she even played the lute and sang there.
