    Was fun explaining it to the wife though, we've both learnt something new today - even though it was at your expense

    Also shows, that no matter how hard we try with out names - it's not always going to translate around the world how we think it will.
    Laugh all you want, I did the same when I learned what it meant

    And yes, there is always a language that your name will be an swearword. My RL surname is a swearword in Greek

    Oh really?

    Does the ban on swearing only apply to English?

    Because I could Google Greek swear words and play guess your surname

    I believe it applies to any language (but we don't have any Greek moderators I think )

    Isn't Greek mandatory when you are becoming a demigod?

    For myself in the mid 90s I used "Bigfoot" in some online games, but I increasingly found the name was taken on message boards. Eventually I decided to pick a new username and I was - at the time - playing quite a bit of Final Fantasy 8 where the main character uses a weapon called a "Gunblade". At the time I was a young-ish Scottish guy in his 20s, so I simply put "lad" at the end - and the name's stuck ever since as it's never taken. To date, I believe I am the only person online with this username.

    I like dicing things up in space with sharp swords. Actually, I like dicing things up here on Earth with my katanas too.

    They are a great series of books, a shame they have now ended but at least we got to learn what it was all about. I've always enjoyed 'First Contact' stories and I consider ADF to be the master of such.

    So was I...

    See folks, this is what happens when you allow Squirrel lovers to moderate forums.

    My name came from a play on Necronaut and Necr0. In my head made me a better player in Quake 3. Necronaught means to me zero deaths.

    Some people accused me of being in the one percent elite of the world but in reality my name was originally "Khan Noonian Singh." One Day an anon sent me a text message in game "Change your name." Perplexed that I wasn't able to relive the glorious person of KHAAAAN in game I decided anon was right. No one can live up to Khan.

    My opportunity arrived for a new name I found fitting; In a high intensity zone I got my hull down to 1% value, still managing to limp back to base with only 20 seconds of oxygen remaining - it was a fond memory when I first played Elite: Dangerous.

    I panicked when it prompted me and just entered the first thing that came to mind
