As I browse the forum, I can't help noticing the creative screennames...some are obvious (like mine for instance, my actual name), but others, not so much.

So, what does yours mean?

Not that my nickname is interesting or anything, but here goes:

Rusty: Comes from the 68 Corvair I'm restoring. Started as I was driving to work one day. Some Nader loving goon pulled up beside me in a plastic, wind-up, Asian-mobile. and called out: "That's a rusty piece of shit"
I replied: "My car can squish your car" then won the race to the next light.

So, "Rusty" is short for "Rusty-piece-of-shit."

haha, that's a good story.

i won't get too bogged down into my name's history, but it's latin and translates as a conglomeration of four words:

Aegis=shield; protector
Dei=god; lord (genitive of possession)

So it means: Lord's Protector or Shield of God

i leave it up to the reader to interpret the translation how they see fit. i'm not a religious fanatic by any means, so don't go that route. i just chose my signature b/c even the bible supports being armed and it fits well with the religious connotations of my name.

good topic, btw, i'm interested in a few other names

Well... mine is kinda simple... "Indy" is just a shorter version of my last name... and ARMS as in armaments (that context is obvious here...)

So... Indy-Arms (sorta like remington arms. or the like....)

Mines not very original, but my cousin got me reading this forum and so when I finally decided to join I went off of his. He joined the Guard and so went with KySoldier. I have medical issues that kept me from signing up with him so I’m just a citizen. Sooo.... “KY Citizen” works for me.

Mine is sort of self explanatory, I'm a fan of the full power Battle Rifles and have a G3. Sort of my first love. Now that I'm into AKs (I hated AKs at the time) and piston driven rifles I'm not so sure I'd pick the same one, I've at times thought of just switching to "BattleRifle", but the BRG3 appreviation works well and is certainly the name I've made for myself, as an "out of the box" yet traditional enthusiast and craftsman.

Loque sounds too close to the German word "loch" (which means hole).

Maybe having that as a screen name would sometimes fit me better though. :unsure:

It's actually Apophis, considered by many to be one of the best villians from Stargate SG1. Part of an egomaniacal race (the Goa'uld) that wields technology to make people think they're gods, and have gotten to thinking it themselves over time.

Apophis was the only Goa'uld that really had depth to his character. He was more than just full of himself, he was noble and instilled a sense of national pride and honor in those who followed him. In fact he wore his own armor (gold vs the silver of his men) and led his armies. A bad guy to the end, but one who brought out the best in men, who believed in what they were doing, and were rewarded for their accomplishments.

I'm not pro-Apophis in the slightest, but he wasa great character. A man you'd respect when you face him in battle.
