Here's mine, though not much exciting...

When I configured my first email account back in 1932 :) , my first name (Stefano) was obviously already taken, and so was stef, ste, st and even S, so after trying some more combinations I ended up with sticking a random J in front of it et voilà :)

hehe, this is a good thread :)
Even tho there are people who say it isn't so, I do still believe "Dick" is short for Richard, which happens to be my name.
There are people like "Tricky Dick" Nixon to prove the point, Dick Cheney, Dick Tracy and so on, so dont start that arguent on me, I've been there many times.
I actually released my first home produced Album "Home Alone Project 2002" under the fantastic name of "Dick Snuts" - still not sure if it looks better as "Dick S. Nuts" or "Snuts", but the name kinda stuck to me.
I still experience problems when using google translate sometimes, it tends to come up with very strange translations...
"Dick" means "well fed" (in the sense of being overweight) in german btw - which ads a bit of fun if you regard MrSnuts is a rather slim jim.
"Sorry - had to do it!" - Les Claypool

yes, you are looking at the administrators signature.

... lemme use this once in a wikitime opportunity to point out that I am neither too wasted to spell beer nor too foreign to spell bear correctly,
my name is "Bär", and since wikiloops did not support umlauts in its very early days, I used the common substitution for the ä.
its pronounced like the english air with a b and means...

*drummroll*

bear. Right.
The guy responsible for coming up with this creative name some 25 years ago is also a member of wikiloops, but I wont tell who it was. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!
What's a name if you got drums. phew.

My name is Todd but every one calls me toad, the Cruncher part comes from unintentionally crunching quite a few toads after the spring hatches near my home. frogs mostly but frog cruncher didn't have the same ring to it.

My name is Dave and I chose the name Rickplayer because I play a Rickenbacker Bass. Everyone uses Rick on the wiki when they post thumbs or compliments which is cool and ok.

Skinny-dave just doesn't sound as good as Slimdaver. I combined the nick names "Slim" from my work, and "Daver" from when I was in school.

Mine, like jstef, relates back to an email account. My brother set it up for me. My name is Ryan and that was already taken so my brother decided to chop the name in half and switch it to Anry - but this looked too much like a mis-spelled Andy and because of our accents we pronounce Ryan more like Ryun - Ryun became Unry - then I forgot the password for me email so just set up a new one as unry666 - 666 because I'm evil :P

I grew up with a Dad who loved switching letters around and intentionally mispronouncing words. Take a shower in our our home was "Shake a Tower" for example. So, I always thought "Bluz" was a clever way to spell "Blues" (my favorite music.) Also, as an electronics technician, I have always been bad about taking things apart and trying to modify them - upgrade them, etc. I thought that I would build my own guitar around my love of that Blues sound that SRV had especially and because I play a strat, I wanted to have a logo made that said "Bluzcaster" instead of Stratocaster. Twenty years later - it's still in pieces. Just a quilted maple body and a birdseye maple neck and a idea for how to get a unique translucent tobacco burst. There are so many great bluz players here who (in my view) deserve the name more than I do. I found out years ago too - that others have used the name "Bluzcaster" and they have even made guitars with that name. Though, I can't seem to find one to link to. :/

Mine is pretty nerdy, it's from a old xbox game called ninja gaiden.
The most annoying enemies in it were a swarm of ghostly piranhas that float mid-air and would swarm you when you get close.

Me and my friends used to call them Ghostfish

I love reading Arthurian Legend…Morgan Le Fey was King Arthur's half sister. She was also a very powerful witch…something I can only aspire to :)

Don't have a story-- other than it's a fictitious name. It's kind of a shortening of my first and last name, and it sounds so suave! heh heh.

ROBJOL. So simple; my name is ROBert JOLy. I don't have imagination at all. You can verify that by listening to my music...
