My friend and I were driving up to the Asylum in Lincoln this year (it was our first Steampunk outing) and we were discussing suitable Steampunk names. I quite fancied a slightly sinister but typically Victorian, and Septimus seemed to fit the bill. With a three syllable first name I felt the surname should be just one; Grey just happened to be the colour of my cravat for the day and for me it worked (not that you can tell that from my picture). What do other people think?

I had cartoon version of myself drawn for charity by the wonderful Emma Douglas (I'm sorry I don't know what her persona on here is), and it was decided that Septimus owned a fleet of Airships. lol

Ninian "Fen" Griswold, I got the ninian griswold bit from a name generator and though I didn't like it I thought is would be useful for the character; the fen part I got because i decided the character didn't like his first name because it sounded girly and chose Fen as his nickname.

GameraGX, I hope you'll forgive me for saying, but I just caught a glimpse of your signature, and I am not certain I am understanding it correctly... As long as you are on the same side of the wheel, your orientation does not affect the rotational direction (after all, being upside down in relation to the wheel is the same as it being upside down in relation to you - something that happens naturally as you turn it). Clockwise and anticlockwise are only reversed by viewing the rotating object from the other side of the plane of rotation...

This is all rather petty, I know; and I certainly mean no offence - I just felt compelled to point it out...

@The Isomorphist:  Ninian, while having a nack for mechanics, isn't the brightest tesla coil in the lab and therefore his realization is false. The joke is he's an idiot.

My name's origins are quite simple.  "Anastacia" was going to be my real name, my mother loved it but my father could never spell it the same way twice in a row and so suggested the informal and much easier to spell "Stacy."  "Spinnenheim" is lent to by my time I spent living and working in Germany many moons ago and it's also where I learned to spin yarn and sometimes it seems like only the spiders work with threads more than I do with my boundless amounts of crochet and knitting I do.

Well I always loved the name Atlas, via. "bioshock" reference, "boarderland" reference, etc (you know the deal Grin)

I just made up the surname Fishard, cause it was just something at the spur of moment and it just came to me,

For the middle name I don't write, say or type it down unless it's being incorporated into someone's story/manuscript/parchment and/or something very formal in its purest steampunk form Wink But I would pick Arthur, aka: Atlas Arthur Fishard ( Sir A.A.F. ) Arthur is my real name btw Wink

tky for reading! comments? write them! lol

I am the Doggled Avenger because I am the do gooder righting wrongs in the world.
Even if at times it is for profit. I left the Empire Air Navy secretly (they think I'm dead) to pursue foreign targets that were untouchable by the laws of Great Britain.
I have since found a calling doing good things and have been contacted by an Air Marshall who knows my secret. Together we toil in the murky underworld of the unseen bringing justice to the streets and skyways of our fair nation.

I think I have finally decided on my name, but I reserve the right to change it if I see fit to do so.

My name is Dexter Cogsprocket and I am working on writing a backstory for my character, which I might post here if I am confident enough with it.

 My online handle has always been Arachne near on  10 years in one form or another. Unfortunately as the more goth oriented youth and bandwagon jumps came on the net. I lost my name often to some form of Emo girl..

But I originally picked it because of my fear of spiders. When I was 10, I was bitten by a rather nasty lil bugger a brown recluse spider. Needless to say since that day, I am afraid of the eight legged beasties. I got very ill from it and sport the scar as reminder of that awful evening. When Dungeons and Dragons came out ( yes, first edition) way back in late 70's I of course played and made a character up.. She was a naughty sorceress who loved to do evil things. Over the years I have used her as my identity for online and written many a rp and short stories with different versions of her. Currently for SP she is Lady Arachne Penelope Ganymede  two more Greek names are taken from Greek Mythos..

When I was somewhere around a year old, I was bitten by one and had a nasty reaction (as I was told). My calf swelled to about three times it's original size.

Over the past 10 years, I have been bitten at least 8 times and I still love those cute little 8-legged beasts. My absolute favorite is the Cobalt Tarantula.

'Tis true. Why, just today he righted the terrible injustice of a very smart military greatcoat having no owner, or at least, not one who appreciated it.

Fortunately, that is now remedied (and the Doggled Avenger will be warm AND smart this winter.)

Brigadier Davis at Your service, Renegade Mercenary at Your service.
This name is originally from my allegiance with Dr. Steel and his army of Toy soldiers. I chose Brigadier as its not a very commonly utilized military title, and I also rather like the sound of it, its not too high up and nor is it one of the lower ranks. The Davis comes from my real name and just sits nicely at the end.
The uniform I have is in fact a 1920's Brigadiers uniform from the British Army, and was happened upon by a complete accident.
This name have been used for many different characters over time, but the one which I have settled upon is that of a renegade member of her majesty's armed forces who fled his position as Tactical and engineering officer aboard the Airborne flotilla after refusing to open fire upon a civilian vessel.
So though he left disgraced he stands by his principles and until then unblemished Military record.
Ok, I believe I have said enough now.

Copper is a name I have used for many years, I have always liked it and thought it would fit quite well on this forum.

I have been trying to think of a full name that included Copper, to use for my Steampunk persona and have come up with: Miss Victoria Copperburgh

Let me know what you think and any other suggestions would be greatfully recieved.

Hello everyone, I'm new to this, although I've been lurking around as a guest for a while now.

The name Gabrielle Messing is the name of a role playing character of mine, that I use for role play via letters. Gabrielle because I've always loved the name and Messing, if I am not totaly misstaken, is brass in german. Spell i Mässing and it is brass in swedish, anyway. Cheesy

By the way, fun to read about all of your persona names, very interesting indeed. Smiley

"Not too high up"...? You are aware that Brigadier ≅ Commodore ≅ One-Star General?

Ok Your right now I have seen what i've said I can see how preposterous it sounds, but I suppose this could be slightly off set by the fact that the British Military no longer employs the rank of Brigadier, which has now been replaced by the rank Brigadier General, which I certainly am not.

Dacombe is a family surname borne by my predecesors for many generations. As for the first name that preceeds it I go by Jerome, Bellamie being my middle name. So all in all I guess that would make one Jerome Bellamie Dacombe. Not as facinating as some of the other name-related tales related here, but no matter.
