I have a great imagination you know...thats why I came up with this username ;-)
No frankly, I got tired of having to create usernames at many sites so decided to go with my first name.

Got my nick around in 92-93 by a close friends dad who saw me pulling a front wheel slide into his place on a moped.

That was unnecessary, Keshav. Your nick is self-explanatory, and we all understand....

Good thread Mate! I have often wondered the idea behind some of the usernames and signatures.

My name is Santhosh and I decided to come up with a username using non-alphabetic characters. This is the first web-site where I have such a username and frankly I found it quite difficult to type and was cursing myself for the idea . Now, I am used to it.

Well, i started out by browsing bullet sites and had planned to name my bullet "Conan", when i bought it.
Since bullet looked bulky and muscular like Conan the barbarian.
So when came across this site while looking out for a car, just used it to become a member and now i am stuck with it..

I came up with my alias when I needed one for IRC chats way back in 94/95.
I was tired of entering alias after alias only to be told that someone with that name was already present on the n/w.
One night, after a few futile attempts at logging in, I looked around my room and sighted a "Savex" brand power strip. Decided to reverse it for a cool sounding unique id: Xevas. That sounded a bit wimpy and so I tweaked it to Xezas.
