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.

After spending the last 23 years being a single dad my daughter is now doing her own thing. 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!
In two weeks I'll be winter camping in northern Michigan in about 4 feet of snow. So gettin-away has almost become my goal in life.
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.

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!
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."
