    What's the origin of your user name.

    I've noticed some unusual names in the forums.

    Mine: Bokkie.

    South Africa's national animal is the spingbok - at least in rugby it is. It also appeared on the old state heraldry/coat of arms. Bokkie would (very loosely) be a baby springbok. It's also used in a diminutive context of anyone originating from the country.

    What's yours?

    Roberts is my last name and "dvd" is just a condensed version of my first (David) - i adopted it many years ago as a username for some other service and its easier to keep using it so its more universally recognized or something. It does not stand for Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc thank you very much!

    hehehee...my initials are NMF. "Nymph" Hmmmm....

    I started using "Natophelia" several years ago when I signed up with AOL; easier just to keep the same one for everything. It's made of my name (Natalie) and the name of a character from Hamlet (Ophelia). I was a big fan of the play at the time.

    Yeah, but Portia from The Merchant of Venice was waaaay dishier (and smarter) than Ophelia.

    Mine was thrown at me by some guy I used to know, and it just stuck. I'm Don, and I'm not sure where the "Mata" bit came from.

    Is that one of your cartoons? Very good if it is.

    What about the EH Imperial Gunboat pilot under the avatar?

    Mine "Lekker jol" is from the afrikaans suggesting a "great party", "good time", "great night out", etc. Hence to go jolling.

    Ummm... I live on Ocean Drive, ride on Ocean Drive/A1A. Swimming and the ocean and all its beauty teeming with life is part of my soul. Has been my entire life as a south florida native. My favorite way to end a ride is to de-shoe and take a swim.

    Thanks! Yeah, I drew it. The pic on my avatar isn't actually a gunboat pilot, it's Severus Snape. Yeah, I drew that, too....I used it for my avatar just because I liked that good ol' Goth sneer. Maybe I'll replace him with the wolf, though...

    Well my names is JAMES and so if I spell it backward it's SEMAJ. So one day I was signing up for some email account and that's all i could think of. And SEMAJ was taken so I picked a Z instead.

    Actually i really don't even like the name. When I meet people from discussion boards I don't like to say ZEMAJ. I think it sounds lame. heheh

    Maybe I'll sign up with a different name since I haven't been on here long.

    Snape? Schweeeeet. I'm a Harry Potter addict myselfl; an ex-chick (not long enough to be considered a girlfriend) of mine got me hooked on them when they first came out.

    Miine comes from the name of a web design firm I used to own called Webist Internet Solutions. I still do some design work but am busy running an ISP for the most part. Actually it's the ISP I sold my design firm to.

    Guillermo is my first name. I don't use it as my primary name for obvious reasons. Dax, my middle name, is a little easier to grasp.

    Well, ya' know, I like riding bikes. And I like playing drums. There's other things I like but there's only so much space! Also, when I signed on here, someone had taken my typical sign-in name (which is odd because it's very unusual).

    I'm boring... mine's just my last name. It's been my username ever since I had my first computer acct and I've had it for all my accts throughout college and into my career. On EFnet IRC, I go by WintrHawk (9 char limit so I had to drop the "e") which was taken from a Craig Thomas book.

    I went to Cal, short for the University of California at Berkeley. Oso is Spanish for bear, the school mascot and state animal.

    I thought of using "stanfurdsux," but I'll leave that for another Cal alum.

    I use caloso as screen name for lots of sites.
