    im told several meenings of my name, i can narrow it down to this:
    1)it is spanish.
    2)it is a bad word
    3) i like it
    lol dont quite no what it means, i think bad a**
    started with a friend of mine in 5th grade saying that he heard it from one of his mexican friends, then i was called that by my other close nigz, and now it is shortened to cabby, cab, stuff like that but i use it everywhere, emails, icq, games forums. so just a little insight

    Comes from David, it's my Nickname in real life :)

    I was actually starting to write up a story that the day I was born, Mars was aligned with all its planets & I was supposed to have super powers & all but then I remembered I have a few nasty assignments to finish this week so I won't.;)

    The Fantasy Continues..

    My Nickname-o-graphy:

    hmm.. where to start..

    once upon a time, i was drawing/writing stuff on a piece of paper out of extreme boredom. then i played around with my nickname, which is written in thai, and figured that it could be drawn into a cartoon. actually, it's nothing, just use the first alphabet in my name (when written in thai), "Í", as the body and then just draw heads and arms and legs. i thought it was really unique so i stuck with it till now (around 5 years already, i think)

    at first, i used to draw it with a cape, like superman, so i called it "A-Man" since the first alphabet in my name when written in english is an "A". superman = a-man, stuff like that..
    but then the name is NEVER available when i sign up on websites. so i had to put in numbers behind it. i used to use A-Man001 as my e-mail usename. but since i hate having names similar to others and have to be distinguished through numbers, i dumped that name after some time.

    next, i used "na181920". this is related to my favorite singer (i am a star freak, if you haven't figured out from my sig), and i even had it carved on my graduation ring. but then i found out that this name is not totally unique either (found one guy with this name), and i needed a new name that would give a more "general" feeling on non-celebrity sites. so now i just saved this name for star-sites/boards.

    and so now i needed a new name. sth that would truly express myself and gives a general feeling that can be recognized anywhere.. i thought and thought.. several nights passed by.. and at last, i came up with what seem to be the perfect solution..

    "ai", in japanese, means "love".
    "hate", in english, means...well, "hate"
    so there are 2 words from 2 different languages originated from (almost) 2 sides of the globe with 2 totally different meanings...
    and when put together and read in english, it reads "I hate" (not "AH-EE-AH-TEE", cabrone ;) ) which, of course, means "hate".

    so how does it express me? well, first of all, (i'm told that) i'm extremely sensitive on certain issues. so i don't usually have the "so so" feeling on things/issue. i'm usually on one side, not in the middle, so that's "ai" (love) & "hate".
    but i was told that sometimes, i seem to be pestimistic about some certain stuff. so the reading of my name, "I hate", serves this.

    other reasons are such as the word "ai" is one of my favorite words in japanese. especially when it's written in kanji (chinese alphabet). but even when it's written in hiragana (japanese alphabet), i think it still looks good. not to mention that it's one of the first japanese kanjis i learned.
    and i seem to like the word "hatred" a bit too. dunno why, i guess i just like the sound of it. so i use the word "hate".
    AFAIK, if read in japanese, "Ai Hate" would be read "ai ha-te". i'm not sure what "ha-te" means, but at least it can be read in japanese.

    some other names i use are such as "F.F.Slave" which i used when signing up for ign.com (a game site). as you can see, the name says it all, so i plan to use it on every gaming sites i sign up for, if i actually do, that is. another one is "The_Ammar" which i use it as my e-mail account. you see, "Ammar" is my first name, and i wanted my name to sound BIG, IMPORTANT, THE ONE AND ONLY.. voila..

    so far, i haven't seen anyone use the name "Ai Hate" yet, so i'm quite happy. though it's getting old, and i wouldn't mind changing, it's still suits me the best (i think). now, i'm considering whether i should change my e-mail account to the name "Ai Hate" too.. maybe not now since "The_Ammar" is doing a great job making my friends remember my e-mail (remembering "ASOW156872" wouldn't be as easy, would it?). but maybe the time will come when i can't control the spamming in "The_Ammar"..

    THE END

    My name means Bringer of Storms, or he who brings the storm.

    It was also the name of Thor's hammer (Norse Mythology)

    I have use several others over the years but this was actually the first name I ever used online(not counting the BBS days) and one of my favorite, my second favorite nickname was HumanTorch(I think Rick can remember a time when I was using that one)

    A few years ago when I was learning martial arts my instructor said to me that when I look at someone I look with laser eyes.

    I think he meant that when I look into someone's eyes I can see through the mask to what's inside which sometimes makes people feel uncomfortable.

    I think that's a byproduct of staring in general. ;)

    I used to have an extra B at the end of mine, but I was bamned for cursing from a board for explaining my username, so I dropped iot. It standsm, rather obviously, fior Mind Your Own Business. It isn't hard to figure out what the other B was for...
    I use it as i hated people asking what the other username i use, XXB, meant. It meant nothing, anyway

    RobMan TS Rookie Posts: 18

    Well it's easy to figure out that my first name is Rob. The "Man" was added when I moved here to NC. The first job I got, everyone would call me RobMan instead of just Rob. I notice they do that here in the south. The name grew on me so I decided to keep it.

    It meant two things, depending on wheter it was the last or second last letter. And not 'Buddy'. Think words that the admin wouldn't like

    not sure my name needs any explanation. Apart from being my Counter Strike name, I also smoke rather a lot of the wonderful weed :) . I've been cutting down recently though, maybe I'll have to think of a new name......

    My recent re-emergence of asthma has taken care of that little habit. Pity. Cigarettes too.

    If anyone is trying to stop smoking, either weed or cigs, get asthma! Trust me its a great way to stop. No nicotine substitute / will power / self-hypnosis tapes required! You'd be surprised how easy it is not to think about nicotine / hashing cravings when your trying to breathe properly.... :evil:
