Not a persona name so much but my forum name Joanna Spanner is basically one of my nicknames. Ive a feeling its got less to do with my handyness with tools and more to do with the fact that it rhymes and also that when I was growing up someone who was a spanner was a bit of a twit...Yup, sounds like me  Grin

I used to be schizophrenic, but we're ok now! hehehe... 

Or you could do, "Roses are red, Violets are blue, I'm schizophrenic, and so am I!"

Perhaps it's changed since the last time I looked into the matter (I've had cousins suffering from said conditions) but I was under the impression that MPD was a subclass of schizophrenia.

Aye, I'm aware.  Scizophrenia kinda runs in my wife's side of the family.  Dissociative identity disorder (or Multiple Personality Disorder, or MPD) is TOTALLY different (although, to be fair, most who suffer MPD are also schizophrenic).  Scizophrenia is actually closer to disassociative disorder (a losing touch with reality), and often times those who suffer from it are misdiagnosed with something else altogether (MPD, Borderline Personality Disorder, even Bi Polar, since Bi Polar and schizophrenia are VERY close...)!

Sorry about that, and I hope I didnt offend anyone with my strange brand of humor.

My name comes from "The Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll. Well, part of it at least. Back in high school (in the days before the aethernet), my sister and I came up with nicknames for each other. She's Sister Slithytove, by the way. When I finally got online for the first time, I began using the name and it's been that ever since.

In my teens I hung with all sorts of people in black uniforms (metal, synth, goth etc.) and for a while they tried to give me the nickname Wolf(well, Vargen, I lived in sweden then). Now whilst this may be an ideal nickname in the metal community, I just felt it was way too pretentious, as I felt about nearly that entire crowd. My best friend called me Wolfie at some point as a joke. She said it in the same sense that I do now: a sort of "fuck all these dark or macho nicknames", and so it stuck.

"Wolfie" became my way of mocking all those people around me who took themselves too seriously, and it became my permanent online alias.

In the UK, back in the seventies, we had a TV program where Wolfie was a loveable rogue Smiley

For me, I have always been a tinkerer, when thinking of a name I wanted something that related to my day job and love of all things 'automatic' but not too moderm, a clock maybe?
A random conversation brought up the old TV series 'Planet of the Apes', I remember Conelius Galen being one of the main characters - "Cornelius Pendulum" has a sort of rhythm, -Tickworthy is just more clockwork, a pendulum is no use if it isn't tick-worthy!
Convoluted or what!

Poppy Locks is a very recent creation!  I'd been searching for a name for rather a long time and was mulling the problem over while I was working on a customers handbag....  You see, in order to create the rest of the persona, I always need a name to work with!  Anyway, back to this customers handbag.....

The customer was called Poppy and I was resetting the Lock........

Huzzah!  Poppy Locks was born!

considering the expression "Poppycock" (also a tasty treat here in the US) I think Poppy Locks flows rather well.  I think I also displays the lighthearted spirit of steampunk  Grin

Careful Xenos. Split personality and schizophrenia aren't the same thing.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Can I just throw in the even more unusual word Xenophrenia

Meaning foreign or alien state of mind, I came across it in reference to the experiences of  initiates into the Mystery religions in the early First Millenium BCE...

Makes perfect sense, really...  Xenos is greek for "foreign" or "stranger," also "alien!"  So, yeah, the nomenclature makes perfect sense...

Well, I didn't see any air pirates over the weekend and I wondered about that.  In the car on the way home I was thinking about going as an air pirate captain next year, and it evolved from Amelia Earhart.  I also was approached by a friend (the wonderful Fi from Adixxition) about making steampunk jewellery to go with her corsets, so it'd be part of that too.  We'll have to see how that goes though, she's taking samples to the Whitby Goth Weekend to see how they sell.

Well my name is a combination of a couple of different titles/reasons.
I grew up in far north queensland and up there if you went mad/nuts/crazy it was known as going 'troppo', always being an outsider and a rider of a short fuse i was always told i was 'troppo'. Then when i eventually went online i needed a nic, it seemed troppo was already taken so i took troppolad which was soon shortened by all and sundry to troppo. I worked with guys for the best part of ten years who actually thought it was my real name lol.
he Laird of Dunans Castle is actually a legal rightful and legal title for me to use, though where would i use it, other than in a place that appreciates things like that? Mrs Troppo bought me  the title for my birthday a few years ago and while i managed to get a few 'yer lairdship' beers out of it its been worth little more than a laugh till now.
So i`m not really bothered what i get called but i answer most often to troppo.
Cheers all
Troppo

Hello all!
I used my own mixed heritage as a base to create a native american character, with a cool sounding Indian name. 'Jack' comes from my nickname, so that part was easy, the 'Grey Cloud' part actually comes from a line from one of my favorite Johnny Cash songs '...I taught the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky...'.
Yup, so that's me!

Well due to my obsession with aviation from a young age, I was always a fan of the designs from Geoffery de Havilland (especially the Comet 3 ^_^) and since I never liked how "de Havilland" sounded, just changed it to van Hallivand and the names stuck with me for my online persona ever since...and the occasional acting Wink

the name Dante has always rang a bell in my head and after i started reading the Inferno i thought it would be a good choice, as my friends often refer to me as a poet.
as for Coal, it was originally Cole, but i then made a friend with that last name and i thought it would be strange to take it as my own. so Coal it was. Also, my brother and i work at the forge from time to time, Coal would only be fitting of a metal worker.
