In Kannada bombat means superb.

In my school days, I used to play lot of cricket. I was a stubborn batsman. I could bat whole day and they just could not get me out. Not that I made lot of runs, just stubborn. And they started calling me bombatt - superb batsman - Bom'Bat'- I put one extra 't' at the end just like that.

To this date many of my old classmates don't know my real name. Whenever I bump across them, they call me - hey bombat...

Vasudeva is just another name of the Lord and has many meanings, one of them is one who resides in all things and in whom all things reside. Although the name implies someone from South India, I am from North. My signature is also one of the Lord's sayings.

Bombatt sir! That was a funny post and a good explanation.

Mine too came out of frustration from creating a hotmail id.

My name (MANoj)+ bit of creativity (S) + Co. name (IDEA)

so hear I am - mansidea.

(man's idea..not mansi dea... somebody used to address me as "mansi" in the forum ..that explains my signature)

Had just done the sound system install for my car (my Zen) and a very good friend of mine from bombay who heard it said it was like "ICE" car was white and had blue lights, yeah back wehen it was "cool" and then one night over drinks the name ICEMAN came into the conversation and it stuck..
then i had my Baleno which had registration number "91"
so there you go..iceman91 was born...
