Question What's in a user name?

With that recent thread on signatures, I got thinking about the user names. Some seem to be very creative, others....not so much. So share if you will.

I suppose I'd better start off. My former roommate got a dumeril and named it Geebies. The future mate for it was going to be Heebie. I found that amusing so I stole it.

Yeah, my user names not so creative, just my regular name minus the space between Cam and Hanna. The dumeril story reminds me of some fish that my friend used to have. Both were Astornotus ocellatus, one named 'Oscar' and the other 'Meyer'

My names Michael, almost everyone calls me Mikey, but I noticed 6+ years ago when I got online, that "Mikey" was always taken; hence Mykee.

Send a message via MSN to Invictus
I have been using this nickname since the Internet was unheard of, and local dialup BBS's were all there was. Invictus is latin for "unconquerable". The original inspiration came from the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley. My favorite poem of all time. I was infuriated to the point where I beganthrowing things around my house when Timothy McVeigh (the unabomber) used that poem as his final F-YOU to the world. I was literally seeing red. But, I decided that if I change my nickname because of it, I'm letting him win.

Anyway, Invictus is also in my heritage. I'm mostly Scottish, and on my dad's site of the family, clan Armstrong, the clan motto is "Invictus Maneo" - "I remain unconquerable" or "I remain unvanquished". (It could mean either).

So there ya go.

Invictus, I like the user name, I've actually got a Yahoo! window open right now trying to find it.

*Edit*
'it' being the poem.

I could just quote the whole thing if you want.

Hell with it... here it is:

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
