I'm new here, so I don't know the story. Some of the folks here have unusual 'handles'. How did you come by yours?

I'll start. Had to pick a nom de plume in High School. Picked 'harlan' (small h) in honor of one of my favorite writers (Harlan Ellison, 'For I Have No Mouth and Must Scream)

the kanji is this:
Kin=Gold Tama=Balls

and the meaning is this:
Kintama = 'family jewels'

Dereck ... it's me ... my real name. Was going to use Wraith because when I was younger I was into Fantasy type characters and books. Have used this for gaming in the past but for this I felt I didn't need to hide behind a false identity and thought I'd just be myself ... not that I'm saying others are hiding. Plus it is cool to actual see my name and spelled correctly because I've never seen it spelled this way before. Martial arts have taught me to be accepting of others and of myself so just wanted to be me.

Superb topic harlan, I too would be interedsted in knowing why people chose their handles.
Alas, my name is not particular interesting. It just happens to be me
I did toy with the idea of using my nickname "Brush" which my mates still call me to this day (after an unfortunate haircut I once had, many years ago).

Gary.

Harlan,
When I wrestle with my son it always starts the same way. I say " Boy, one day you're gonna kick my @$$........ BUT IT'S NOT GONNA BE TONIGHT!!!!!. Then he says "You never know old man, it just might be.

Within my tribal clan (Lenni Lenape - Wolf Clan) I am the Meesingwe, or Game Keeper = Ranger.

And yes I did have Ranger training in the Army.
