Captain Robert Arthur Alexander Llewellyn MacLeod

Llewellyn after the Welsh prince Llewellyn the Great. Macleod from my love of Scotland and of course Highlander. yes I am in fact a fan boy.

"questionable experiments  involving plant research."

Dear Lord on his Golden Throne, Lady Toadflinger, what exactly constitutes a questionable plant?

I'm having very odd thoughts involving vines, and perhaps seed pods.

Kieranfoy,
It is the experiments which are questionable, not the plants. (although some of the plants can be pretty dodgy critters!)  I have tired of the same old boring immoble plants, and am looking to create some lively botanical specimens. (remember some of the plants on the original Star Trek TV show?) Vines do indeed feature in some of these experiments...... creepy, crawly, twining things, with spines and explosive seed pods...

So, you're a mad botanist? How utterly delightful, and how wonderous to meet one who takers her cue from TOS.

Ah! Unfortunately, the jellyfish type beasties kept trying to drop onto my Dachshunds, and I will not allow any harm to my hounds!  I had to discontinue that line of research.  I am currently working on developing a vine that can shoot its spines on command. (the rascals keep firing at their own whim)  Perhaps this plant would work to deter the deer that ravage gardens in our area! Hmmmmm......

Thanks for the lead on Ernest Rutherford...it was a good read.  I may have to do some more research on him.

The read on Dame Rutherford was interesting to say the least.  I'm not sure how you connected the other's to her, but I did get a laugh out of it!

I fancied some kind of military rank, but not to high as i didn't want to make decisions. but not as low to be bossed about by people who want to move their drinks cabinet  30cm closer to the enemy at the cost of my life.

Queensbury comes from Queensbury rules (look them up) which i believe was invented by some kind of person of military status, for use in a bawl with somebody else. also to ensure no dishonest cheating occurs in unarmed combat. another unwritten rule is you do not "kill" an unarmed man. he is given a weapon or you disarm yourself. also common curtosy tells you not to engage is a fight with a lady. As a gentleman i obey these in the odd punch up. sorry I'm droning.

My persona is an arctic explorer. My wife's ancestors were from Finland, so I just went up the family tree to her great-grandfather, Daniel Gustaf Danielsson. I also learned some interesting history in that they were from a region of Finland that spoke Swedish, and hence used the Swedish naming convention of <father's name>+son or dotter.

My username is result of long development work.
First, I make name "Datamies" (It's finnish, and means Dataman Wink). It was good in small time. Then I started to go english-based forums, and transformed the name to english version, Dataman.
But then I noticed that Dataman is very used name, and I have to make my name something special, and I done it using these "~"-marks in both sides of name.

I haven't quite settled on a name yet, although I do really like the anagrams I was given:

for now I'm going by my pirate name....

Hmm. I chose my name after a relatively obvious poet.. although I'm very aware it's not exactly what you'd call a 'steam' name. Oh well, it portrays my persona well.
I honestly think Abney would be fine, on its own. I like shorter names, evidently.

Professor Masters,
Thank you for the heads-up.  I'll be sure to be quite careful when dealing with Basil plants. So far, the only spices or herbs I've dealt with are some of the mint species.( They show promise, as they are known to be invasive little buggers. One can almost catch the fiends sneaking out of their pots into other pots!) Well, back to the greenhouses!

Mine came about because I'm more than a bit obsessed with motorcycles. Ariel and Enfield are two of the oldest manufacturers of motorcycles in the UK. Ariel started out making Penny-Farthings way back around 1870 and the name came from the name of one of these Penny-Farthings. They also merged with another company and produced a de Dion steam-engine powered trike in 1898. Enfield comes from Royal Enfield. They also started out making bicycles in the 1890s including a de Dion steam-engined "quadricycle". As I have a passion for motorcycles, in particular vintage and classic ones, the name Miss Ariel Enfield means something to me.

"Stallybrass..." Some years ago, a friend showed me The Onedin Line on video (she'd seen it in her youth in Holland), in which Ann Stallybrass played a starring roll.  "Stallybrass" struck me as one of the most interesting names I'd ever heard.

When I decided to finally join this forum, I realized that Stallybrass was ideal for a steampunk persona.  So I looked up a list of nineteenth century names for women, and "Phoebe" seemed to suit me and go with the surname well enough.

(As for "Miss..."  Well, I wanted some sort of form of address, but balked at the presumption of calling myself "Lady."  And so, as I have never been married, "Miss" it was.)

Of all of the names I have gone by, Protoman is the most recent name I have used as my persona. In the dystopian spin on the Megaman series written by a band named "The Protomen", Dr. Light created Protoman as a weapon to fight against an army of robots led by his rival Dr. Wily. Although Protoman fought bravely, and alone, he died at the hands of Wily's robots as a crowd of fearful humans watched, too afraid to fight for themselves. His willing sacrifice for the sake of others who did not have the courage to stand up for themselves encouraged me to carry on his name. I use it when I assume I am going into something alone.

Well, mine is the name most people call me, due to the fact that I need to walk with a cane.

Always had a soft spot for House MD for a number of reasons. Being a fan of Fry & Laurie from a young age, I obviously like Hugh's character. But moreover, I also admire the relationship between House & Wilson mirroring that of Holmes & Watson.

I have always felt akin to Sherlock and House. Natural puzzle-solver really.
