What Does Your Conquer Name Mean?
 
I looked through the threads in here and didn't see this one. I'm always curious how people come up with their gaming names....

Macha (Trojan) is an ancient Irish goddess related to war, sovereignty, and horses.

MaraJade (Ninja) is my favorite female character in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. (I love wearing Lightsaber weapon accessories on her. LOL)

Eliana (Monk) is a spelling-change from "Illiana", which I was going to use as a name if I ever had a daughter.

Nixxie (Warrior) is a spelling-change from "Nixie," who is a Celtic water demon.

Callista (Water Tao) is another SW EU character (Luke Skywalker's first love.)

Ragana (Fire Tao) is a Latvian goddess of magic.

Tommit actually was a short lived nickname from an ex...Her name was megan and upon seeing a maggot crawling on the ground at a park I called her Meggot...she in turn called me Tommit and has been my character name since.

I have too many characters on servers to name but here's a few:

Colossus (Trojan): Colossus of Rhodes was one of the 7 wonders of the world. It is also the name of my favourite X-Men character (just because he's awesome). Also the name of the first computer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus

Mausoleum(Monk): Again named after one of the wonders of the world. Also because of the shrines that monasteries build to the monks of their time (which I got to see when I visited China woot woot). It stands as a testament to the dead - which my enemies would be after they saw my monk =p

Zale(Archer): A water Spirit, which I just love the name of. I was going to have it written alongside my tattoo but I couldn't decide on a font I liked.

Tal0s(Ninja): A figure similar to the Colossus that protected Europe in Crete. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talos

So yeah =)

Ok, I won't win any popularity contest here but maybe the Troll Trophy...

ReadMe - (usually) small text file with essential, start up computer information.

... I wanted an uncommon, all plain ASCII, short and easy.
... All good names like Doc.Akerson, Chevelle, Yoda or Death were taken.
... So the first thing that came up while browsing for hints was a ReadMe.1ST
... Nerd stupid, but still unique as far as I searched for it (chuckles).

Dodgin~Bullets - Engraved on a Zippo lighter in the movie "Mr. & Mrs. Smith".

... This was an easy one and still I haven't heard of another like this.
... Missing "g" due to name lenght limitation, this name was picked for an archer.

Daddy~Danny - My second archer, currently only char.

... Picked my own nickname as a "returning to COmmunity" and to be a landmark,
... I was like a daddy (old man) to the kids in Ryee, with a wallet worth of DBs.
... At the time a "buyer" was rare, hated and admired, and player base younger.
... I wanted to be remembered by future CO generations, even a little too late.
... Also, its meant to be a PK joke: After killing a char I would come and say:
... "Who's your daddy now?"

~Ma††~ (trojan) - A variation of my actual name, using symbols for the T's...

Extra
(monk) - Made a long long time ago, was meant to be a plvling character only and named it after the gum - "Extra" as I had a pack of it on my desk.

Other accounts I wont bother going into as I have about 50+ noob accounts!

She has a great inspirantion for classy names. Colossus also has style.
I found an old post in the stds (forums) about a char named Mephisto being made Mod lol. Would like to hear his tale.
Bout Matt lol - really "match" for the PK game.

Pitty most VIPs don't like to post here. This corner is fine, and we have much more to enjoy than the stds (liberty, I guess, is a privilege). But we miss a lot of awesome threads... Their names and sigs are 10!

Godifer - (wat war wat wat fire nin war wat tro nin war fire) The first account I made, and The reason behind godifer, was I was in a chat room like 6 years ago, everyone had biblical names, then I saw lucifer, I never knew really what it meant, yeah sure the son of satan or whatever. luc means light, and ifer means bringer of, so I made up godifer. bringer of god. I figured when I kill people that's what I do.

Ownedbydagods - (arch arch) Variation of the "Owned by the Guardians" From halo.

Those are the only meaningful names really.
