    I'm not asking what you want to change your nicknames to, but if you have had a different nickname in the past.

    Mine used to be 'Your Lord and Master', but i ditched that after 2 minutes for this one.

    Good you have changed. I utterly despise any nick that includes the word 'your'. I also despise pompous nicks, the closer it gets to Divine-Ruler-Of-This-All, the more I despise it. Arrogance is too small a word to be used here, I believe, and when it enters conjunction with second-person implications, then I am no longer unfuriated, but overwhelmed with pity. Apparently, I have not yet mastered higher levels of fury. Another thing is that some of people who have such nicknames are just joking, ie double-joking, without actually thinking that such a joke is funny, sort of bitter irony. Perhaps you belong here. But it's still a great breach of social rules.

    But to pretend to stay within the topic, my nick was chevalier des Trois-Tours, a highschool nickname. I shortened in after some time. I never actually expected anything more than just 'chevalier' to be used, but some people might be bothered trying to use the whole nickname while being polite. So I changed it.

    I used to go by the name zaknafein, but I just couldn't take the unoriginality of it. Not that Aikanaro is all that more original, just less known :D

    @ Earl Tea.
    No.

    Morgoth has calle dme Lord of the Flies a number of times. Doesn't really bother me.

    By the way, Earl Tea, feel free to knock yourself out with changes to your quote. It's a pretty open discussion.

    I was considering Celes after a character in FFIII then Kilara, Sotami, and others which flitted across my mind in the space of a second before I thought of Valkyrie. Which is also, coincidentally, from a video game I have

    20 kudo points to anybody who can tell me where the first nickname came from;)
