    I used the T-1000 annotation from the Terminator film series to simply add a '1-0-0' to my Christian name Abishai.

    Now, I feel like Robert Patrick!

    It's a partial anagram of my real name, Edward... Dredward... Dreadwar. It was the name of my villain OC, and as a Sith fan, it stuck as my username on pretty much every Star Wars forum I'm on.

    Mine is from a fan fiction character of my own making from 1997 (who was a Jedi Master in the time of the Clone Wars)

    Master Nicodemus Rebado (but leaving off the first name).

    Shira is the first name of my first serious OC. The full name being Shira A'dola, of a species from a planet also of my own making within the SW universe. I have a lot of lore and history invested into her and she's the first character I truly took real pride in

    I believe in this context it would be "original character"
    As in, they had written an original character in the SW universe for the first time named Shira, not just a fan fic of the same characters

    Exactly what @RoyleRancor said :) She's an original character I created for stories I wrote in the SW universe.

    as for my name. Royle is just an old nickname from a football coach who couldn't decide to use my first or last name once and it stuck.

    I like alliteration so I went with Rancor over other Star Wars "r" names

    I had a friend who went by CJ, and as I joke I would switch it and call him JC. This led to him switching my first and middle initials in like manner, thus giving "TM" (in correct order, my username would say "mt"). The number is my birth date, with a second "1" added accidentally before the 9 (I didn't realize I had put it in that way when I joined, but I've never tried to get it changed).

    Oh. Must I say what is the actual meaning of "daRinze" ?

    Well. You must first know I'm from southern France, and my pseudo is coming from the gipsy language.
    In Gipsy, "la rinze" is.... mmmmmmmh, have I to say it? :( well, please don't repeat that : "la rinze" actually means "the stripe of the ass" :oops: (I hope Google Translate did the job: I am actually talking about that thin line between the buttocks).

    During my school years, they were several gypsy children in my school.
    They fondly distorted my actual family name, in order to spell it "la rinze", that sounded very funny for them.
    I must admit they gave me a nickname full of love and very rewarding... imagine: you are walking through the school playground, and someone is calling to you, very loud:
    - Hey! Ass stripe! Come here!

    When I grew up, as I poured more and more into self-derision, I decided to pick that name from my childhood :) I kept the gypsy root "rinze" as a remember of my former childhood friends, and added a modern slang "da" wich stands for "the".
    This is the reason why there a is a capital R in my pseudo. I am very concerned that everybody must respect it. :p

    That led to: daRinze, which means the rinze, which means the stripe of the ass.

    And I am proud of it. :rolleyes:

    My little brother used to watch me play Battlefront (2004) when he was young, and whenever he tried to pronounce "clone trooper" it would come out as "cawatrooper".

    My birth name is Antonio Dino Martin Bonanno Jr.
    Yeah it's a mouthful of an introduction. All of my life, I have been predominately addressed as one of my middle names, "Dino" (Dee-no). It has gotten to the point where everyone has adopted "Dino" as my second first name, and my last name is Bonanno. (Bo-nah-no)
    Yeah it can can a little complicated with so many names. (stormy 2)(stormy 3)(stormtrooper)
    I simply reversed 'Dino' into 'Onid', and replaced two "n"'s in my last name with 'z's', creating "Bonazzo". (Bo-nah-zo)
    Essentially the same way Cin Dralig recieved his name from Nick Gilard. ;)
    Simple yet effective.

    I couldn't think of something good when I registered and kinda just picked my name at random. But it's from ANH of course.

    Long time ago in a galaxy far away...
    Great A'Tuin
    the great star turtle
    carrying four elephants
    which are carrying a wold on
    their back, is slowly making her/his/its
    way through the unknown regions of the galaxy

    I think there would be enough evidence that Star Wars and Discworld share the same universe, if you search hard enough.
