How did you decide on your user name?

There are some weird and wonderful user names on this forum.Some are obvious but how on earth do some people think some of them up?
Mine actually came from my nickname a gym teacher at college gave me and it has stuck with me 35 years later.

The USAF are going mad here, they haven't been able to fly during the fog and are making up for it today. Let's hope that the balloon goes up in good weather.

Up early myself lol.

As for my forum name well iv been called wolfie for many years as a nickname,
It comes from the fact i have a big wolf tattoo on my arm which i had done many years ago.

This topic has been aired a number of times before.

My moniker comes from my initials Eric David (with a stylised "E" as "€") and the surname of my partner again with an extra "e" as I had to re-register once from being without the e.

I'm always known as Ed which is a bit confusing as my brother's name is Edward.

Loosely connected to computers click here it's a wonder no one else chose it.

I posted this in the other thread but anyway - my real name's Pete Smith but as you can tell, that's boring. So me and my mates made up foreign names for each other one night when we were on the beer. Mine was Pierre Rodriguez and it stuck. :-D So I use Rodriguez as my forum and MSN names (took the Pierre off because it was a bit weird).
