I've come across this thread on other forums, and thought it was kinda neat.

Well, mine's pretty straight forward - I'm a Kiwi with a Gaelic/Scottish heritage, hence 'Kiwi Gael'! Royal08.gif

"MDF" are my initials. I am a big fan of the Chicago White Sox, so the "3530" is a reference to Frank Thomas and Magglio Ordoņez.

Mine's fairly straightforward, albeit obscure for most Americans. Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord was a French statesman starting with Louis XVI through Louis Philippe.
The one constant in my college career was my minor in History and my focus, if you can have one with a minor, ended up being French History/Art from The Sun King to modern times with an extra emphasis on the Revolution. When it came time to pick a name for an email account, after seeing all the good ones taken, I thought I'd find one that ought to be unique. I thought someone from the Revolution would make a colourful psuedonym. Thus far it's been available everywhere I've gone.

I love to read Arthurian literature and Sir Thomas Malory (in "Le Morte D'Arthur") uses "Damosel" as his form of spelling for "Damsel".

Mine comes from the fact that I love all things Celtic, but my real name is Rosemary. Feel free to call me Rose or Rosemary though.

Mine is kind of boring. My name is Todd Sargent (tsargent) and I was born in 1962. I've found lots of tsargent's, but no other tsargent62's.

On any new Celtic/Scottish/Pipe Band sites I join, I've started using SADrummie. I play with the St. Andrew's PB in Detroit, and Drummie is slang for the lead drummer, hence the moniker.

Cheers!
Todd



Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

After spending the last 23 years being a single dad my daughter is now doing her own thing. hug.gif So now I spend weekdays trying to figure out how I can get away on the weekend. And then actually gettin' in my jeep and gettin-away! cool2.gif

In two weeks I'll be winter camping in northern Michigan in about 4 feet of snow. smilie_tux.gif So gettin-away has almost become my goal in life. thumbup.gif

Cailiosa is an Irish name meaning girl of Jesus. I liked the name and the meaning. Another name I have gone by on other boards is Fianna, which is a reference to Fionn MacCool's (the Irish spelling of his last name escapes me at the moment) band of warriors or the name of Eamon de Valera's political party, Fianna Fail (which means warriors of the nation). I personally prefer the former.

Then we shall come to happiness
And blisses more than we can guess in Jesu's company."

Cailiosa is an Irish name meaning girl of Jesus. I liked the name and the meaning. .

Oh I like that too - I've not heard that name before! Lovely... both the name and the idea.

I'm 'Siusaidh Blues' because a long time ago I was told that Siusaidh is the Scots Gaelic word for Susan. And 'Blues' I tacked on because I absolutely love good blues guitar...
when I get to heaven, the first person I want to see is Stevie Ray Vaughan because he took the blues to a whole new level! biggrin.gif

Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."
