Not being creative or well read, I simply chose my given name and a picture from when I was a few dozen moons of age.

I chose my avatar because in real life I'm an insanely powerful, totally evil, wizard, that lives in a big tower on a volcano. AT is a hobby to fill in time when I get tired of trying to dominate the world.

Great thread! :twisted:

I am a night-owl and a bit introverted (in person, at least).
There is almost always a touch of darkness in the things I create / surround myself with.

I blame my twisted parents (R.I.P.) and my erratic childhood. :shock: :lol:
My name / handle reflects this about as much as my email: adarkmorning@____

Latin: Nyct & Greek: Nykt - a combining form meaning “night,”
used in the formation of compound words: e.g. Nyctalgia.

I went with the Greek, as it was easier on the eyes.
I use this handle a lot, on many platforms.

If it's ever taken, i go to Nykto5. (Find me on XBL? :mrgreen: )
People online keep calling me New York, or Nick... but whatever. :roll:

As for my avatar, along with the eyes in my signature...
they belong to Orochimaru (from the Manga / Anime: Naruto).

A protagonist turned antagonist & then back to protagonist.
Gotta love that internal sturggle, revenge& hatred turned in for compassion & forgiveness.

TL;DR - I always wear black! :lol:

Interesting that you should say that....

My name is the combination of Hebrew and Aramaic... in a way very, very few people have ever considered putting together. I have only met 2 people in my life who figured it out without me telling them. It's more fun to allow people to simply think my real life name is "Beth".... and let them get shocked to find out I'm a guy.

It started 20 years ago when PRODIGY (remember them?) was the hot ticket on the planet into the new verse of the internet. I worked for Best Buy, we had a special going wherein signing up to Prodigy gave you $200 off a computer. I took advantage of it, and at the register the cashier asked "What do you want your email to be?" I hadn't given it a second thought until that moment and in the heat of the moment (with customers standing in line behind me) I blurted out "BethelAbba". No forethought.... just straightforward "Yup, this is going to be me for the rest of my existence". It really was a life defining moment.

The name has stuck with me everywhere I've gone and is present as a footprint of mine all over the internet. At one point I was the highest seller of Christian Music on Ebay (for 8 straight years) under that monikor, raking in $4,000-$6,000 a month. (while working for Best Buy full time) Thousands of folk around the world know me as either "JulieMillerFan" (which was another joke that came to life) or "BethelAbba".

In short Bethel is Hebrew meaning "Beth" House of "El" God and Abba is Aramaic and is a term of sincere and deep affection, meaning "beloved Father"

House of God, My beloved Father.
For the record, I am a Christian missionary in Taiwan.

Where I live, Abba is quite a common word to refer to father in muslim families.. and Abba jaan for beloved father. Nice nickname.

I love this thread and really thought it was interesting how some of you used word combinations from different languages.

My real name is Hristo passed down from my father which is Greek for 'Christ' which means 'the anointed one'. However, my mom never liked how it looked and sounded and always wanted to name me as Viktor which i thought was awesome, both in meaning and in looks. Then i watched V for Vendetta and read the infamous V poem. I became fascinated with the letter V; even vowed to name my future son Viktor. And perhaps my future daughter Valeria. Im weird, i know, but im serious about it.

So thats where i got the V for Voom.

Now for the first O.......

Lol, jk. Voom is the combination of the letter V and the word Zoom. Zoom comes from my subconcious insecurity that i am slow. I hated when my family would call me slow, because i felt so much faster mentally than anyone i knew. But i always did things with perfection b/c of my ocd, so most effortful things in my life inevitably took me time to do and i would memorize every step, but i never did anything twice.

Voom, that's my name.

My avatar is the silhouette of a torch, which reperesent how i feel like almost all the time: an enigma. To share how i feel about something usually takes a lot of effort on my part. For that reason, people, including my family, have always underestimated me in a lot of ways and continue to do so. Ultimately, im content b/c i feel like i have that upperhand by knowing what i dont allow others to know. And what dont i let others readily know? Well, a torch shines bright my friends.
