So, I always get a kick out of trying to figure out why people choose the GC nicknames they do. Some are pretty obvious, but others are kinda cryptic! Entertaining if nothing else!

I'd like to hear explanations of what your nicknames mean! Mine is stever67: my first name, Steven, last name's first letter is R, and my hockey number was 67... chime in! I'm curious!!

My dad's name is Ronald and when I was a teen, I always making fun of him 'cause he was smaller than me. "Petit" is "small" in french. The short of "petit" is "ti" so Ti-Ron was the nickname my friends and I give to him. So when in 1995-96 when got our first computer with internet I had to choose a nick to go on mIRC, I choose Ti-Ron so every of my friends would know it's me.

We still call my dad Ti-Ron to this day.

first 2 letters of my first and last names. Picked it early on in my internet days, 1996, have had the same 'keto' email since 1997. Nothing to do with the diet.
I'm guessing... Kevin Torres? ;-)

Since I have two last names I picked the first letter of my name and first last name (my father's) and added the full second last name (my mother's). Paradoxically the musicians are on my father's side of the family

As a course participant and member of Syn-Aud-Con (Home), I got to meet Don and Carolyn Davis, both great people and incredibly knowledgeable and influential in the pro sound world.

They often told a story of a band where half the members had hearing problems and the other half did not. Turns out the half that did lose hearing also imbibed in muscle relaxants (primarily pot and alcohol) during performances, and because of that, the stapedius muscle in the ear did not do it's job, limiting the ear during excessive noise exposure. Get High, go Deaf. Get it?

Well, that and my love for Hi-Def entertainment, working for years in the broadcast business and finally seeing broadcast quality in home consumer electronics, in the form of HD TV and SACD, etc.

I thought mine was funny and it has my name in it. It's also fairly unique across the internet and I hate emails and names with numbers in them

Wow, Hi Def, thats great.

Krunch: i just like the way my Stephenson Standard hangs on the edge of breakup when clean, and the way it can be pushed into compressing (or something?) when being driven hard by the Stage Hog.

Lame name really, never thought i would be asked. Lol.
