My screen name isn't creative. Yoda is my favorite Star Wars character and I live in WI. I have been using it for a LONG time. YodaWI was part of my first email address (I can remember a time not having one:) and I have been using it for many things since then.

What about the rest of you?

Lancil is my true middle name, and is what most every one calls me.

Now that is a good username story.

Fallon Kell was my favorite PC.

The phonetic combination of Egyptian "Ankh" and French "Inconnu".

Incidentally, combining the definitions of the words, you get a potential actual word meaning "hidden life" or something of the like; Ankh being the symbol of life/immortality, life force, inconnu meaning hidden or unknown.

Rerun is a nickname I picked up in college among my fraternity brothers. I like to quote movies, so one of my bros started calling me "Rerun." Also, I am the 941st brother initiated into said fraternity. So that gave me the number.

It's become my forum handle on multiple sites ever since.

Mine actually comes in two parts.

Guardian: This part comes from a group of my childhood friends. Inside of a week, I saved two of my friends from really bad situations. Both of them started jokingly calling me their "Guardian." It didnt take long before our entire group was calling me Guardian, since then I've continued to use it as a reminder of my childhood friends and the good times we had.

A: This is the first initial of my late daughter's first name. By adding the A to my screen name, I take her with me when I go online.

Zarm R'keeg was a New Republic pilot (based on the 'Brash Pilot' RPG template) from one of my first attempts to write a Star Wars Audio Drama script when I was 11 or 12. The story filled in the at-the-time-blank 11 years post-ANH period with a Thrawn rip-off and a cloacked TIE fighter menace that I thought was really clever until I discovered Rebel Assault II. Zarm R'keeg, Jeb Stargazer the young Jedi knight, and Bria McCall, the... well, frankly, token girl character Wink , along with their CZ and R3 droids, went out to save the universe. Jeb Stargazer became embodied as on of my PCs, Zarm R'keeg became my universal internet screen name (I found it catchy and one of the only name I've ever made up that I liked- others find it... vaguely al-Qaeda-ish or so. My father-in-law asked me to stop having my wife's Christmas presents shipped to his house under that name because of the looks that the postman kept giving him...) and the rest... well, the rest await repurposing in some future campaign...

Years ago, I had a freelance flight instruction business with 2 other guys, klh is first letter of our 3 last names. KLH Aviation.

After life moved on and we got real flying jobs, I was stuck with the klhaviation mail account.... so I used it as a username for all of my fun interned stuff... fifteen years later things never change... it is a username I can actually remember.
