I met a girl like 30 years ago. Her name was Ally Wishes. I had no idea that Aloisius was the word she had said. Nor did I know it was a man name. Good thing nothing ever happened between us.

When I was a teenager I was super hooked on mandalorians :D Bendak Starkiller was one of the characters in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and yeah... Mandalore was just a placeholder cause I needed three names hehehe

I wish I could make a small alteration to it nowadays but meh It kinda stuck with just Starkiller.

At one point I did open TV without the intention to watch a football game and suddenly seen this kid scoring 5 goals in a champions league (nobody did that before).Since then I got attracted by the genius of football and I've converted a die heart real madrid fan to register the account for me after messi scored 91 goals in 1 year (world record all time).
This year I've managed to tame a pet for him I constantly run commands (mostly "bow"), his name is "ronaldo"

Tyrese Gibson played "Angel Mercer" in Four Brothers (2005) and an ex-convict nicknamed "O2" in Waist Deep (2006).

Those were two of my favourite movies back then (around 2007/2008) so I just combined them because dumb MA wanted 3 words... :)

Not very creative or deep, I could've picked any other random movie name to be honest.

Mine was in a manual of Dungeons and Dragons, the first part at least Aranthir. It was an elven name. Athal I made it up and Lander I suppose it was supposed to be related to sci-fi XD I was 19 years old when I made that name :D

Sadly, none. I followed this game for a while but couldn't play it because I was a mac user and macs weren't x86-compatible at the time. When Apple switched to Intel CPUs in 2006, I bought a new mac and finally decided to check the game out first hand but didn't plan to spend more than a few hours in it, so used the first names that came to mind. Earlier that day I read an article on the Swedish king Magnus II Henriksson and watched a movie that involved Svarog (a god of fire and smithing, sorta a Slavic version of Hephaestos), so without much thinking entered a mixture of all that as the avatar's name. When a few weeks later I came to my senses and realized I still play the game, it was too late to start over.

Good thing I wasn't watching porn that day, I guess.

Ranger as in... rangers, Sheryo = self-made, Fenriz = Norwegian musician, mostly drummer, and close to Fenris/Fenrir, the mythical wolf.
Count the letters of each name and you get one more reason ;)

When I was thinking about creating a character for EU (PE back then) I couldn't come up with a cool name. So I ran a few online name creation progs but all those names sounded like crap. That left me with no idea for a name.

Well, to be honest, I had only heard of a game envolving a character called Ender and that it was related to some sort of book. I quickly read through a short description and thought that it might have got something to do with parts of the idea of Entropia. Also, as it includes "end" it has something lethal to it.

Ender alone wouldn't do it for me so I tried to make it more special and unique. I can't remember how "mine" came up but to me it started to look as if my avatar has ended his journey/life on Entropia, so "my end" as the avi would see it.

What's the "g" for then? Well, to make it even more unique. And the way I see it when spoken the "g" isn't spoken thus making it a hidden character or something.

Since I have used other nicks and needed names I started to split up my nicks to make them look as if they were real names. But obviously if you know anyone or even you are named Ender Migne this is just a coincidence.

Reading what I just wrote I think I wasted quite a lot of time on this subject. :laugh:
I wrote that in 2006... Well, it still is valid :)

I think you misspelled your name. Shoulda been INTERNAUT :D
This is similar to my first idea CYBERNAUT, but in the end I went with INTERNUT as I can sometimes be a bit crazy :)

I used to play half-life opposing force multiplayer back in the day.
One of the avatars to choose was Spawn. He was black and was barely noticeable in dark corners. Bootcamp was the favorite online map in Opposing force.

Storm was an old English/Dutch comic.

Katie sounded like a cute name I could use along with my cute avatar to score free stuff. I completely misjudged the player base. The last MMO I played was Runescape and that was over a decade ago, cut me some slack.
Chalmers because I was watching Steamed Hams videos on YouTube and for some unknown reason that name came to mind. :D

I wanted to use my father and grandfather's names as well as my own. I figured this wouldn't be a game I would get bored with quickly, and in anticipation of the long game, I thought I would immortalise the three of us together.

I had to be rather loose with one of the names but there is a connection all the same.
