Default How did you come up with your name?

I see a great deal of interesting names on the boards nowadays. The question is, where did you get the idea for yours? Does it sound neat, have some deeper meaning, or what?

Khaldun is only half of my real name; Bork'an Khald'un. I'm an avid history buff, and "Borkan Khaldun" is the hill where Ghengis Khan was secretly buried. So secretly, we still haven't found it. We know what it's supposed to be like, but no discoveries yet. I thought it was a neat name, and sounded kind-of like something the tau would use.

Wasn't there a thread like this a while back?

My Story:

Well, when I was like 11 my uncle (13 then) was on AIM, and I started messing around with his chats. The people he was talking to didn't personally know him, so he made the excuse 'sorry, that was my girlfriend Becky"'. Kinda wierd, but it stuck. The spelling is a play on my last name. Not too historic, but funny

i am a geek. anyway, in the simerillion, Fingolfin was an elvish king who fought a demigod, Morgoth. He died though he was very close to killing him (lopped off a foot, and stabbed him seven times. he never healed from the wounds

Well, my old nickname was davemiester, because that's what my friend called me, but later it changed and evolved into what it is now. So I decided to use it as my name.

I can't wait to here T.O's story

Thousand Sons are my favorite army and thus I took the name of their Primarch. Out of respect, of course. Lust for power? Me?

I looked in the dictionary and say Behemoth as a gigantic powerful mythological creature. My favorites colors are black and red. Red Behemoth sounds stupid, so Black Behemoth it is. I actually came up with it before I came here, and decided to use it here.

Default Re: How did you come up with your name?

Well, deep in the bowels of my basement, when my IG army consisted of 3 guys, I needed a name for my CO. Suddenly, Vladimir... too popular... Boris... same. Stankov... perfect... Arkadia, taken from General Arkadia Ouromov from 007, and add Vladimir in the middle, and I had my General.
Why then, you ask, is it Lietenent Commander? Well, I am the Lt. Cmdr. of the IG forces in the TO campaign. When its over, back to General. Or Generalissimo, because thats the full name of his position...
