Your name origins

Postby Captain_Short » Sat 24th Dec 2011

There's a a bunch of people who I have no idea what their names mean, and some I can't pronounce :razz: And I thought it would be fun to learn everyone's name origin. Just post what your name means and.. maybe some history if you want. :)

My name, Holls, is a nickname for Holly that Foaly randomly gave her once. I can't remember which book, though >< That name just stuck in my head, and I thought it'd be a nice screen name. Even though my username is Captain_Short, (I hope we all know where that comes from) I'm called Holls everywhere else. If you can remember which book that's from, post it, please. XD

Ala here. Just noting that this was the last thread on this topic. You'll find the origins of the older member's usernames already posted here. Continue on ^_^

My username is completely opposite of Artemis Fowl related XD When I was a fifth grader I made it up for some cartoon network thing. So partyon is for how "fun" I thought I was. Soccerfan was because I still liked to play soccer back then (I'm terrible at soccer XD).
Take a look at me 'cause I could not care at all

When I first came here, it was 'Arty'sgirl' because I thought I would be a perfect girlfriend for Artemis (I looked like Minerva). Then when I joined, Artysgirl was taken, so I got Fowl's_Girl. XD Now I'm like a hyperactive Minerva with short hair.

Thank you Fowlie!

Well, when all the normal people find out how cool it is to be different, they'll want to be different too. So if everyone is different, then different people will be normal, and the normal people will be different.

My username was meant to be Skylark but I got mixed up... XD
Oh well, my name alliterates! It has nothing to do with AF that I can think of.
//Edit: My new nickname is SkyRose (if you don't mind calling me that, at least it's shorter than Skyswallow!), I've read TLG :'( If you don't get the 'Rose' part, READ IT!

This user will debate you about how important Jean Valjean is (acceptable answer: very), and the distinction between 'antagonist' and 'villain' and how the terms apply to Javert and the Thenardiers.

bentj96 is my user name. Bentj is a joke, and 96 is a reminder of a friend of mine who was been nearly killed by his father. He was born in 96 and his father had been on drugs for the longest time. He almost died when his father tied him to a set of train tracks.

I normally call myself Dark Star on these forums. The Star is for the Fowl Star from the second book. Dark Star was just the coolest way I could incorporate that into a nickname.

In short, I have been obsessed with falcons all my life. Probably because of a movie I watched in preschool called Quest for Camelot. Ha. Silver wings are purdy. And then the 121 I've always had, waaaay back in the second grade when I wanted Shasha121 as a username. Of course, I didn't have any internet anythings, so only the 121 stuck. (In case you were wondering, 'Shasha' is a Warriors reference, relating to Mothwing's mother. Ha. What I was reading in the second grade. And why it's so horribly misspelled? Don't- just don't ask.)
