Mine is because of a play I was in 3/4 years ago. I was Disco Stu from The Simpsons (weird I know). Ever since my friends have called me that for some reason. 94 is because it is the year I was born.

Named after the legendary Canvey Island, who I managed in FM06 (after getting sacked from Aris), but said in an Essex accent, which a Canvey Island supporter would probably have.

Mine is named after the former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistlerooy. And 774 because I tried all of the numbers up to and including 773 to no avail icon_biggrin.gif

I chose mine for two reasons. Firstly for the last 30 years I have been a serious Star Trek fan and secondly because they probably wouldn't have allowed my original choice Jock Strap . I know that they wouldnt appreciate my odd sense of humour.

My name is from when i created my first e-mail account. The computer coughed up my first name together with the 2 first letters of my second name and surname. That was about 10 yrs ago, and it seems like it's unique. Haven't encountered another user anywhere with that name yet icon_razz.gif

Ehvan is the name of a character I played/play in some online RPGs, have had the name since about 1999? Wanted something fantasy sounding, was 15...it worked. HSV because they're the family team.

Back on the first Pro Evo when they had the "Classic" teams for Italy, Brazil, etc but couldn't use real names for the players Marco van Basten was called von Tasben. Remove the space and capitalisation and there you have it.

Because my name is Craig Hopper. Put the first letter of my first name together with my last name and you get the nickname I got throughout school and now have when playing 5-a-side.

The 99 is because I first used this as a name on the internet in 1999.

I used to play a lot of Call of Duty onlione and needed a nick for that. I'd just been reading Slaughterhouse 5, and so chose "Pilgrim" as I wasn't very good at Call of Duty and rarely really knew what was happening on the servers...

When I came to reg here I used Pilgrim for that reason. Then I forgot my login details and ended up changing my email so I had to create a new account, and so I needed to add the "UK" bit.

I am not, have never been, and do not intend to become, a Plymouth fan.

I'm old and boring.

My original name on these forums was Jimbokav71 back in 2003/04(ish), as it was the start of the email address I had. Then I changed ISP's and email addresses and was to stupid to work out how to get SI to send me my sign in info so I re-registered with my new email address Jimbokav1971, (which is a mix of my forename and surname and my year of birth).

Told you I was old and boring (and stupid).

Inspired by the brilliant House of Pain song 'Danny boy':

"Chop suey don't do me no good, I gotta have corn beef and cabbage

If I wanna manage"(...)

That's all there is to it. A bit weird, but reasonably original if I may say so myself.

xouman comes from showman. A ski teacher called me so watching me skiing, I did in a particular way (I was learning icon_razz.gif). Quickly everybody called me showman because that teacher was quite popular. But showman is too common so I changed it to xouman.

I randomly joined this forum to ask one question and never thought I would be back again. Apparently I was wrong.

rtik = arctic but how i say it,

-1 = 1 because the name might have been taken,

-one = somebody could have take rtik-1,

My mates say I'm cold as ar-tic because i don't say the "c" so i use it as a badly spellled nickname.

Mine is from a segment on Fantasy Football (ah, the memories!) about Mr Stimpson, the pub owner from Peterborough.

I was about 12 and copied the scene. Stimpson became Stimps and 2 is my footie number.

As simple as that....

Anyone who knows Tolkein's "The Hobbit" well will know where my username comes from, anyone who doesn't won't care. As far as I recall it is never mentioned in Lord of the Rings, but probably gets a mention in some of those books on the history of Middle Earth that I've never bothered reading.

I guess I ought to re-read The Hobbit since I haven't done for many years so can only just remember that Glamdring, Gandalf's sword, was picked up from the troll's lair.
