When I playing Zelda games I often name Link "Ganon" or "Ganondorf" as a joke, and the habit transferred to other games. Once I only had 7 characters for a name, so I had to shorten it somehow, so I decided on Ganondox, which also serves as a blend (I can't spell the technical word) of Ganondorf and Paradox, as I see myself as a bit of a paradox. I have several other screen names, but I probably use this one the most frequently as it's the shortest. You may also see me as Titanslayer, Ganondorfchampi(o))n, Satar Gaéoédoæ (the accents may be dropped or the ash split), Bafraid, and maybe a few others that I can't think of right now.

Where did your username come from?

I first joined WP as a parent, looking for answers, so my daughter was on my mind and I couldn't get away from the idea that I was a parent. My username should be Peanut's Mummy, but apostrophes weren't allowed. As I'm a pedant, I couldn't live with Peanuts Mummy. We don't call our daughter Peanut, ever. When I had my first pregnancy scan, she was a 7 week old embryo. She was the shape and size of a peanut.

Eris, Discordia, and the Illuminati - none of which exist, of course...

:wink:

The letters are part of a long / strange name I often use online, the numbers were my age which is wrong, for some reason for that entire week during which I signed up I believed I was 29, oh well it'll be right next year :lol:

I was reading some guy's stories online and he had a character named MacDragard. I hope he won't come after me for copyright infringement.

Ganondox is 8 characters ;)

My username is because I couldn't think of one, way back in December 2009, but a ten pence piece lying on my desk saved me.

MrXxx is a martian psychiatrist from The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. The earth crew who is greeted by him however, thinks he is part of a welcoming committee. When they tell him where they are from, they think he's taking them to some kind of Marian greeting ceremony.

At the end of the chapter, they discover they've been locked away in an asylum. Third (?) mission to mars that disappears never to be heard from again.

I would always play Team fortress 2 (still do) and I love the spy, he's my most played class. However when ever I would mess around with the voice commands as medic I would always hear "The Spy is a double agent" every time I used the "spy" phrase while facing one. So when I joined WP I remembered that quote and came up with DoubleSPY. Why is spy in caps you ask? well, I always did that with my name for steam so that way people would know that I belonged to a specific group, and it kinda became a habit.

I am obsessed with Indiana Jones, and all of his friends call him Indy. That's probably obvious though.

Superman! :D

Just said boy because I was a boy at the time.
And the last bit is my name.

But then I was quite smart with it because I didn't intentionally think that.

I just thought I was super.
I'm just a boy.
I'm Ian.
