Another MIRC person!! Ok so while I am at it my nick is newer. Solar is for sun. Winds is for well my love of the wind. Fly is because I love to dream of flying and I think we all should find a way to fly. A note my old handle was xapis_1 which is pronounced Chare-iss and its greek for love and the xapis is somewhat what it looks like in greek and the 1 was because I was number one hehehehe

I'm a Shaman and Mohegan means Sacred Wolf in a few native languages. I have a wolf as spirit guide/totem animal, so it stuck with me. It was also the name of my sire (maker) when we larped old world of darkness. Basicaly we pretended to be vampires twice a month. We're dorks.

Many moons ago, I was sitting in a basement at a party sharing a bottle of sour apple pucker with a guy who would end up being a good friend for awhile. At the time though, we didn't know each other too well, and we both felt a little uneasy with the other, so we started discussing spiritual view and opinions, and the conversation went from there. Three hours and most of the bottle in, he looks up at me and says "Great. So I'm sitting here drinking with Karma's very own little assasin."

It's sort of fitting for my life path, I guess. When we moved to Maryland 3 years ago, one of my friends nicknamed me Karma - I still don't know why, and all he's ever said when asked is that "it just fits you". Mohegan's Wife (one of my best friends) tells me that I'm a living incarnation of karma.

Hell, I just do what seems right to me. But at least I got a really cool nickname out of it.

Claire is the name of my paternal grandfather's first wife: Goad is my maternal grandmother's last name. For another site, I wanted a name that sounded real.

So the combination pays tribute to my family's scandalous past, and reminds me that I am a unique combination of the two families. The name represents the road not taken--the first wife- who didn't have children.

(ah, the scandal... my 23 year old grandmother drove a woman to the train station... That woman was Claire, who divorced my grandfather, who then married my grandmother... almost 8 years later. Shocking..)

OK, so there's an electra parrot of some sort, and also fungi that are called electra? sounds like a good name. birds fascinate me, and food fascinates me too!

Well, my friends wouldn't be so shocked, we did everything we could think of to shock our parents' generation. I know some young people now who are really, really straight. Which is okay! But I'm really anti-establishment.

Mendalla Justric was a D&D character (a cleric for those care) of mine back in the 80s and I started using the name on various boards a few years back. Now it's kind of a memorial, because the friend who was the Dungeon Master of that campaign passed away this year.

Cool RazeGeneration

Well Raze was my old pen name when I first started writing poems and doing music in high school. Generation Records was the name of our rag-tag record company. When I was making my myspace (many many years ago) I tried to make my URL /Raze but the name was taken, so I just made it /RazeGeneration... and it just stuck, it's been my name ever since. There's a super deep meaning behind it but I don't think you guys are really interested in that :P

but I believe in a way our nicknames say more about us than our given names. While I can still identify as (insert my government name here), I feel that in a lot of ways, I AM Raze. When I talk about myself in third person (which I may or may not do more than would be considerred (normal) lol) I often call myself Raze, simply because that's who I ACTUALLY am. (insert my government name here) just happens to be the name I'm legally identified as. But Raze is who I identify myself as... and I think that means so much more

Agreed. I feel the name Karma is something that was given to me by the people who really matter, something I earned by being me, and them loving me for what I am. I respond to being called Karma more readily than I do my given name.
