The reasoning behind my name is pretty simple:

Joshua
Adam
Byrne
-ster

Honestly I think its a pretty pathetic/lame/immature name, not even sure why I used to join this forum, but Andy doesn't do name changes any more and its a little late for me to re-join...

When I'm sure phpBB3 doesn't have the "break large topics" bug I'll let you have a name change. :)

Well, my brother is mentally retarded and I don't have a sister, but I have a younger cousin who I love like a sister. I used to babysit her, but when she cause too much trouble, I told her it's my "day2die".

Mine is a combination of the last names of two highly influential architects/designers; Eero Saarinen and Charles Eames.

quoting wikipedia:

Quote:
In Norse mythology, Skinfaxi and Hrímfaxi are the horses of Dagr (day) and Nótt (night). The names Skinfaxi and Hrímfaxi are bahuvrihis, meaning "shining mane" and "rime mane" (or "frost mane"), respectively. Skinfaxi pulled Dagr's chariot across the sky every day and his mane lit up the sky and the earth below.

ct2k7:

ct = NOT Connectic; but something else, unknown to me.
2k7 = 2007

The name was introduced for a specific forum where I wanted to conceil my identity, in the year 2007.

Hounsell.

As in my name Thomas Hounsell. I've always used that throughout School, and to a less extent, college. I've not once been in a class where I am the only Thomas on the register, so Hounsell tends to get used far more often to prevent confusion.

Emir = first name
21 = July 21, my birthday
4 = Just a random number I thought of
I've been using this moniker since I registered in Wikipedia on 2005. (Blocked now, don't ask.)
