What's in a name?

I think one of the coolest things about online forums is meeting other like-minded people and learning from each other. I've been active on alot of forums over the years ranging from military vehicles, jeeps and 4x4's, and now motorcycles. For me alot of the fun is getting to know people and make new friends, one thing I'm always intrigued by is usernames. Some are very simple(like mine) while others can be so cryptic. So, what's in a name? What does your username mean?

Like I said mine is pretty brain dead simple, Ks,I live in Kansas, Vn900,my 1st bike in 15 years was my Vulcan 900. I have since moved up to a Mean Streak 1600 and sold the 900 to my oldest son, but I'm keeping my username. It's simple so I don't confuse myself

Location, location, location!!

Another location based name. Love riding around just below the Arctic Circle but makes for a short season



Yes, I know it is a bad photoshop job but this is easier on the tire than driving 200 miles and a gravel road. I'll take a bike up there but maybe not a cruiser.

x-mas parade, they would throw candy out and this one little boy standing by me didn't get any cause this older boy(9 or 10) kept running over by me and grabbing all the candy, so i got fed up, and the next time they threw candy, i grabbed this fat little turd by the jacket and handed him back to his mother, grabbed a handful of candy and gave it to the little boy standing by me. apperantly i worked with his mother, cause she ran into me at work and said "oh--you're the candyman from the parade!!" some people heard it and called me candyman, and it stuck, also my cb handle.

Changed service providers and needed a new email address. I was racing karts at the time and it seemed the perfect play on words.

Mine's not creative at all. It's what I do. I'm an AS/400 RPG computer programmer. A boring old computer geek.
