I dont know why i picked this name.

I was quite interested to read about ATNO's name. Iv'e often wondered what it means. It had to mean something, its not the type of name that has no meaning.

It was also interesting to read him talking about when he was new to the net. I cant imagin ATNO being new to the net, I thought he was born with his hands on a keyboard.

The Alan part comes from a mix of Alex, my first name and Stan, the name of my favorite song from Eminem.

The Lastufka part is a bit more difficult... the Last part comes from Last Name, which is on many of the forms I fill out when I use this alias. The stuf part comes from "The Right Stuff" by New Kids on the Block - cause I can never get that song out of my head - I just dropped the second 'f' to make it look more authentic as a last name. and the ka part was supposed to be 'aka' - but I mistyped...



Actually, its just my name but that seemed too boring to post. ;)

Honestly... It's a nonsense word, There is a rather long story as tho how exactly I come up with it, but it is a carefully guarded secret which no-one has ever been told. Basically though I played around and came up with a nonsense word i thought sounded like a pretty cool net name. The interesting thing though is that it is on paper only. The word is not to be pronounced. I have never told anyone exactly how I envision it, because really, I don't. It is to be merely a writted (typed) word.

Well I started off as Kai Tron which was a character I designed for my comics because I'm an big artist. I love drawing. So anyway... I use to RP online so I had a yahoo name Kai_Tron which i still have. The character is a represtation of my inner self. And then people I knew had aim so I went there and made name but Kai_Tron which is 100% original was taken. So to keep with my character I added LordKaitron which is my aim name... Because the character is a son of a King and all his servents call him lord. So to make it short I just made it Lord Kai although my other name (Dread Vicious) is a bigger and longer story.

When I first got the internet, I joined a message form that was used to get codes for a game device known as "gamshark". The tool is used to "hack" games, and change values to unlock secrets, and get inf. ammo and stuff. Anyway, I chose the name "Hacker" because I liked to hack GS codes, but it was taken there so I threw on "007" as in James Bond 007 :D

From there, I joined more and more communities, but the name "Hacker" turned quite popular, and a lot of people have come to use it. So now just about everywhere but here I use "Soup Nazi" as my nick name. Because thats my favorite episode of my favorite show, seinfeld.

Psilo - derived from the psilocybin mushroom, also known as the magic mushroom. Something I used to have a bit of a passion for, however now adays its not something I have much interest in. Also note that the P is silent.

Kan - derived from Shotokan karate. In japanese this means "house of" or "hall of."

Together it should be pronounced like "silicon"


I came up with this back in college when I was walking home from Karate smoking a joint... Oh how i miss those days :)

Ed - a good short name

Womack - another good name and it sounds a little like "wombat" which is a great word, but "Ewombat" didn't seem to work, so I stuck with my own name.

Pretty exciting, hm?!!? :roll:

Microsoft Internet Security Certificate -- The 'A++' was my own creation since I got A as a final grade but I wasn’t happy enough so I added ++ and now I feel better.

LOL Sam sometimes you say the most profound things!

Mine is from when I started learning all this non-sense. My mentors used to tell me that I was like a bull dog and wouldn't let go until I found an answer to the problems they had set before me.

But no offence to bull dogs they aren't my favourite, so I tried to find something a bit more along the lines of my favourite dog which is as you all know by now a Stafforshire Terrier. It also best described my personality as I am extremely passionate about everything that I do or attempt to do.

and I sometimes wonder about the "affected with rabies" part

Well my name came form when i was registering for a new account on Battlefield 2. Ive used the name Raven for porbably about 5 years now in differnet clans, such as * KING * RAVEN, [ESF]Raven or [DH]Raven. So i wanted the name Raven. Seeing as i wasnt in a clan anymore i didnt have to have a tag. So i typed in Raven, that was taken. So i decided to add something in front but with an underscore because spaces werent allowed. I wanted to sound ominous :) so i decided to go for Dark_Raven but that was taken, so i tired Shadow_Raven, taken, Grey_Raven, taken. I was infuriated. I even tried Toast_Raven but that was taken!! It then came upon me that toast that is black is burnt!! So i typed in Burnt_Raven and it worked!! Ive only had the name for a week but i love it and Burnt Raven Designs is the name of my Web Design Company.
