Mine is just my surname. I prefer to have that as my username everywhere, so I don't have to remember several.

Anarchy -
  1. a : absence of government
  2. b : a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority
  3. c : a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government

I subscribe to the last interpretation wholeheartedly since 1998. 83 refers to 1983 (which is my birth-year) - therefore Anarchy83.

Mine is quite the usual. Combination of my name and the year of birth. I actually tried with arvi_rules username and my attempts failed each time i registered.
Tried aravind84 - the ID i usually use for all my username's and the first attempt am through. So there is something to do with this id and i retain it .

I used to play so much rally games and love Richard Burns/Colin Mcrae and ofcourse world's best race car driver ever Seb Leob. Burns was my first favorite, so kept that name.

I like it man it dint strike me to keep "Thalaiva" or maybe i would have kept Thalaiva Jr in honour of Dhanush after "why this kolaveri di" btw i am also a Tamizha..

After some attempts with the likes of usernames such as ferrari , i thought of being a bit different with an username of its predecessor (not excatly though) - hence Alfa Romeo
Also die hard fan of F1 and Italian machines ...Btw Enzo Ferrari founded the Scuderia Ferrari racing team in 1929 as an Alfa Romeo racing team, before becoming independent in 1939.

I admire Ferruccio Lamborghini'a attitude to out-Ferrari Enzo despite being a tractor maker. That'a the kind of cojones that makes great cars a reality.

I heard about In Flames (a Swedish heavy metal band) when I was in college and liked their music. That is when I thought, why not append my name as a prefix and voila ! johninflamez it is. This logon name has stuck on and I use it everywhere from torrentz to gmail.

I always inspired by the way FIAT has brought the Auto. technology in India. Their original Italian Fiat1100 was one of the most economical and having best featues at that time. Uno diesel brought the diesel revolution in country. Palio was the state of the art diesel beast in 2001. Linea/Punto are the one of the best looking n stylish cars on road.
My family owned only FIAT cars since grandfather.
My name is inspired by the technology which Fiat brought in India first time. "Blue&Me"
And hence my username "Fiat&Me"
"FIAT" as "Father of Indian Automotive Technology"

Sir, a small correction :

Fiat Palio 1.9 D was launched in 2003. There were 3 variants viz EL, ELX & ELX SP.

In 2001 Fiat launched Fiat Palio 1.2 and 1.6 only.

I hope this helps.

Used this name in my countertrike (CS) and NFS games and that is how I was called in the CS arena: dream.

So the same name stayed.
