Hyronymus, or officially Hieronymus, is Greek for my given name. It means "with a sacred name".

September 13th, 1983....

Back in 8th grade (and several years prior) I was massively into D&D - good old Blue Basic.  A friend started a new campaign which needed all new characters, for which I rolled up a half-elf character named Twyla.  I fell in love with her... wanted to BE her!  Her spunk, her tenacity, her adaptability - so much to aspire to become.

Over the years since, I drifted through various RPGs and Twyla was always my first and main character - regardless whether she's a Ragabash GlassWalker (W:tA), Former Wage-Mage (SR), or anthropomorphic vixen (FT/Taps/FM/et al); WHO she is always trumps WHAT she is.

Twenty-nine years and still going strong.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the modern equivalent would be General or Admiral depending on which branch of the military.

My name stands for someone that I see as special. Someone who pushes his limits and, therefore, the limits of his profession to a whole new level every single time. Someone who is so much better than everyone else in history at his profession, and, because of that, that teachs us a valuable life lesson: yes, try your best; it is important to try your best and push your limits. But also: it is important to know that you have to accept failure, because failure will come: some people are simply better, praise them, enjoy them, and do your best.

That is Messi. He is indeed very good at what he does. Very very good.

Wierd I never found this before and hence the necroing of the thread.

So, Gn_Leugim, where does it came from? First Leugim, as some might know, is Miguel writen in reverse, being Miguel my second name. My first name would not work for this, at least, in a pleasently sound way :p

The Gn behind it (Sometimes without a "_" or just with a "." as in Gnleugim or Gn.Leugim), cames from a game a played back then, C&C Generals, so, as I was playing as a general, I better give it to the name, and I short it to Gn. So, Gn_Leugim in short means "General Miguel"  :P

Pffft. I thought I had replied here in this thread, but it might have just been Simtropolis' version instead.

Mine is really simple. I suck at coming up with names, so my username APSMS is just my initials. Sometimes I'll use APSinc (that's what it is on Steam), or Absalom Industries, but again these are just variations of my name.

I try to avoid using the whole thing (my name, that is) though, because I'm pretty sure there's only one person around who's got my name combination. Even if I'm not on social media for people to find.

Ugo Fantozzi is a fictional character, always funny, anarchistic and melancholic, always screwed up by a terrbile amount of misshapps, formed by the italian actor Paolo Villago.

There is a wikipedia entry for Fantozzi.

And there is a day, when Fantozzi is send to retirement and he can't handle it, that the company he worked for a whole life don't need him anymore...

Mine is really simple.  "PaPA" is what my grandson calls me and the "J" is the first letter of my last name.
Lighten up, just enjoy life,
smile more, laugh more,
and don't get so worked up
about things.

Hehe, know what you mean about rare names. Mine is rare enough that I can almost always just use my name as a login which is the case with my incredibly uncreative name here  :D  I'm aware of a single other Noah Clem, I guy about 10 years younger than me from Virginia that I got to know fairly well just because of the rarity of the name--he got the twitter handle first but I beat him to about everything else  :evilgrin: . It's even worse here in Finland; my poor wife worries I'll do something embarrassing and have it get straight back to her  ::)

You know, the last name is different (obviously) but Noah also happens to be my brother's name.

My real life first name is also pretty rare. It's derived from Old Norse/Saxon, and means 'the knowing and understanding woman', or 'wise woman'.

Don't think so. Regarding mythology.
