    Faragon was the name of my first Diablo Warrior. Ever since, this has been the name I have used online.

    My name has more to do with me than with role-playing. For whatever reason, no matter what I do, no matter where I go, I've always felt that something is... missing. I've spent most of my life that I can remember seeking whatever it is that's missing. I don't know if it's the coolest material possession ever, or a person, or whatever, I just know that I don't have it.

    Slightly off topic, have you ever noticed that dwarves ALWAYS have last names like Stormhammer or Orcsbane? I mean, really. Even the ancient sega fighting game Golden Axe's dwarf was named Gilius Thunderhead.

    [​IMG] My name came from my monk's name on BG2. I wanted to do something like Dak'kon, so I did this instead. Also, you can find an anagram server @ rd.com. Look for it.

    I originally used this name for my Pilot in X-Wing...(just Clortho, since there was a character limit, if memory serves: clorhto.plt) but it comes from Ghostbusters. Vince Clortho is the name that Rick Moranis' character gives after he is possessed: Vince Clortho, The Keymaster of Ghoser. Ghoser the Ghoserian, Ghoser the Destructor, etc. "I am the Gatekeeper: are you the Keymaster?"

    MagnusMagus is very bad latin for "Master of Magic" :)
    Other names i`ve been known to use across the net:
    Orions_Stardom - My wierd sense of er.. "humour" mixing with the constilation Orion.
    MagusWizardo - Roughly- *very* roughly - Master of Wizards.
    Snicker - *snicker, snicker*
    SookmaCook - You don`t wanna know. Trust me on that.
    Lennon - My real name (I was named after some guy called John :) ).
    Don`tAsk - well, don`t :p
    Firkraag - fairly obvious, unless you haven`t played the greatest game of all time. :)
    Me - Hi, i`m Me. :)

    Hubby used to race RC cars, and I started to out of boredom. My car was in the class called "rally car" - miniature, RC-versions of the lunatics you see on Speedvision. I was the only woman racing that class and I was pregnant at the time, so my handle became rallymama and I use it everywhere online now. It's very easy to type! ;)

    MagnusMagus, that is truly bad latin. FYI, 'magnus' means 'big' or 'great.' And while your word order isn't incorrect per se, it would be better as MagusMagnus.

    I don't know if 'magus' is magic or not (seems rather likely), but at best your nick means Great Magic. It's not '___ of Magic' because it would need to be in the genitive form to imply the 'of,' while magnus is the nominative form.

    [EDIT: Thanks Uytuun.]

    Actually 'magus' means wizard (although it can also mean magical). So Magus Magnus would be great wizard.

    Master of magic would be 'Magiae Dominus/Dominator'.

    EDIT[no problem The Deviant Mage] ;)

    My name is from Kam Solusar, one of Luke Skywalker's Jedi who teaches at his Academy. I really liked the character and thought it was a neat name. I'm also using it for my PnP character, a Fey'ri Fighter/Wizard/Bladesinger. On a kind of side note, I think Star Wars novels are a great source of character names.

    @ Morgoth: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: !

    Also, I don't know if I should post this, but some of the more interesting anagrams for 'Taluntain' are:
    • Titan ulna
    • Nail taunt
    • Natal unit
    • Annual tit
    • A latin nut (kind of an oxymoron, seeing as he hasn't posted on the Latin for All Occasions thread...
    • Anal in tut
    Sorry if they're really offensive, but they're anagrams. I can't do anything about it.

    Sniper, there is no skill in sniping @ CS, and on topic, I'm sure I relied about the name in another thread just the same as this one. Go dig it up if you're really interested :) .
