    Same one it's been since I signed onto hotmail when it first started.
    P51d007. I'm an airplane nut, so the P51D is the North American Aviation, WW2 P-51 Mustang, the D model, and the 007, well Mr. Bond....I'm a fan of the original 007 movies.

    (Some adult-y cartoon had a seen where a character went "Well alright then, Mr. PimpyMicPimpinheimer!", or something along those lines, and I, as a kid, found that hilarious)

    I'm quite new to this "Internet handle" thing, but i know one thing for sure: I use 'Benny26' on pretty much all the websites/forums i visit, but i first used it right here on Techspot!...and it was sort of an accident due to me thinking that 'Benny' would so obviously be taken here already.

    It's meaning is very simple: My surname is Benn (so people call me Benny)...and i was born on the 26th day.

    Mine is quite simple really, my name is Lee Kaelin and my nickname is Leeky. So both are used as handles online.

    I don't recall my first handles though, I used obscure ones in the beginning and it wasn't till about 3-4 years ago I started using the handles I use now everywhere online.

    My current name has served me well for almost 8 years now, and its creation was very simple. Its just alphabetical gibberish that people try to sound out and in the process sound funny. I first created this name as an online character name for Champions of Norrath on PS2.

    After the Pantera guitarist...

    started using that on BBSs around 1992, eventually stopped using that once this crazy internet became more popular and people started making other associations with the name...

    My car no plate which are the initials in the name bar the 8. i have found it is easy to use this on any site as who else would use it. As it is personal to me it is also quick to login.

    Finding one name that others wont use is the key. Makes logging in to different sites so much easier!

    First one was <SMM> BlackJesus. Apparently, 16 was not too juvenile an age to try to think of the sn that will offend the largest amount of people. And yet, I've probably only been kicked off a dozen or so servers ever for having it. Most recently: a Christian CS:S server. Yes, they exist. And yes, they didn't like me too much.

    My first screen name (in the 80s) was CoinSpin - still use it quite often in MMOs and other locations. Fred Saberhagen and his Book of Swords series gave me so many good nicks/screen names/handles.
