mine's boring.  I have red hair, and Missoula is my home town.

LOL.. I thought it was Mis-soul-a-redhead.. I stand corrected!

Missoula is nice too, I visited in winter, the snow was lovely and I LOVE trees

See, I thought it was Miss-Oula-Redhead. I thought Oula might be a first name I'm not familiar with and the redhead bit is fairly self explanatory. I shall make sure to read the username with the correct emphasis, from now on. ;D

Mine is the name of a character I've been writing about forever, starting on rp sites, moving on to books, though I've never finished a book with Kysis in it. *shrugs*  Some day.

I came up with the name itself in a random 2am epiphany, where I woke up, struck a pose, and shouted out the name, then quickly went back to sleep.  The character was named that ever since. XD

Mine was from a video game... it is the first time I ever used it though. My nickname everywhere else is 'Reala', which was the name of a character from a video game... hmm... not very creative. lol.

My nickname came from my friends at one in the morning. We decided that we all needed titles and mine started as Captain, then became Doctor, and finally Professor. My friends then spent two hours confusingly calling me by different titles, so to end the confusion I mashed them together.  Professor is purposely spelled wrong to emphasize my wish at the time to not conform. I have been known as Captain-Dr-Proffesor ever since, although it is sometimes abbreviated to CptnDrPrfsr if I have a limited amount of characters.

My nickname since the 90's have always been Cyric, from the forgotten realms avatar series. I basicly used that for everything I did. But when I started playing wow some years ago, I decided to do something different. Playing around with different names, I somehow came up with Passiko and that name has stuck ever since. I thought it was orginal since I basicly made it up, but it turns out its some kind of buddist word or something like that. Which is cool by me.

Smoooom is what my kids started calling me when Mike, my oldest, was about 10.  I decided it had 4 o's in it for ID purposes, although when each kid says it it can have SO many more.

Shortened version of my RL name. People have an annoying habit of shortening my name to one that I particularly dislike, so I gave up and became Sanna to stop that. I use Sannakate in some places, if Sanna is already taken.
Or (in)Sanna(ty), which I was dubbed by a user on another site but is a nuisance to have to keep typing in.

I used to, back in the day (well, 5-6 years ago) play an MORPG (not massively unfortunately) called 'Evolution'.

You were x of y, where y was your homeworld and x your username. So originally I was Wheel of Misfortune, but I was an arse and got banned. So I got around it by naming myself Moonshine, as it had a nice ring to it. Only afterwards did I discover that 'Moonshine' was another name for home-brewed or exceedingly strong alcohol.

It also has the advantage of being easily changable - Moonshine becomes MoonshineMS or MoonshineMax when the first is not available.

Truncated realname. Most of my nicknames I've had over the years have not been too flattering ;) lol

It's the name of a DnD character I have played several times.  She's a Drow (dark elf) who has been raised by a very special Wood Elf.  'Min' means Daughter and 'Esril' means Of the Drow.  I put the two together and thought it pretty.

It's also the name I use on the WOTC forums and someone I'd like to include in my story, if ever I start it.
