Seeing as there is a subject about avatars, I figured we should have an equivalent for our forum names. Internet monikers frequently have some kind of extra significance and I'm curious to find out why people chose them and/or what they mean.

In my case it's just a translation of "Evil Weasel" which is (in various forms) the name I've been using on internet forums and the like for years.

My Christian name plus the zipcode that I lived in when I first got on the 'net.

Schneider in German means "blade" - It´s not a literal translation -, a blade against republicanism, modernism and corruption...

Actually Schneide does. Schneider means tailor. They are both derived from schneiden, to cut, so you could say that ein Schneider is a cutter, but really that is eine Schneide -- yes, in the inscrutable way of these things Schneider is masculine and Schneide feminine. I'm not using a nickname, Peter is my name. The last time I used one, on another site years ago, it was '1880 or so', derived not from any reference to that particular year but from the title of the song I happened to be listening to when trying to think of a name to use.

Indeed, Schneider means "tailor", but I´d use it as a poetic licence. But, choosing a nickname is very hard.

My name is Brian. Some Latinists use "Brennus" for Brian although I also use "Brianus" which is medieval. Brennus.

Schneide is feminine because it's got an "e" on the end of it, Peter.

It's indicative of a likely feminine noun, but there are masculine and neuter nouns that end in e.

Npinkpanther is the name I chose for my character on the online game Runescape about 6 or 7 years ago, and which has become sort of a pseudonym for me on the internet. It's just 'pinkpanther' with my first initial at the front.

My account name on this website simply means that I'm a monarchist who lives in Kentucky.

Hi,

my nickname "sollbruchstelle" literally means "element where a fracture should occur".  In nature as well as in engineering there sometimes is the need to provide a larger context with a thinner or weaker element, so that in case of tension only the smaller part will break, and not the context as a whole.

This is useful for chocolate bars, knives, buildings, bottles of champaign, and many other items.

The word "sollbruchstelle" is in some respects self-referential, as the two outer syllables are soft (both with a double "l"), and the inner syllable is hard (mainly by the "ch" in it), thus "breaking" the word.

I am not sure whether my nickname may be related to the topics of this Monarchy Forum ... .

From my early teenage years. I used to be a big fan of Edgar Allan Poe. I came up with REAP to stand for "Read Edgar Allan Poe." "Reap" also appealed to my interest in the occult (at that time as a dumb kid), as does the "freak" bit. 

I'm just nostalgic, I've used the name on pretty much every forum/social site and have gotten used to it.
