Geez, I wouldn't use my childhood name given to me by my father.... it ends in "dumps" as in "dumpy" as in my Welsh Dad thought I was fat. Cute, but not the image I would want to portray... as I said all my nick names are cute in real life, although not necessarily about being chubby.

I usually use the name Incursus. I spotted it whilst flicking through a Latin dictionary once and I was immediately taken with the sound of the word. Whilst I then read that it meant 'attack', 'assault', or 'onslaught' didn't matter to me by then. I was already in love with the sound of the word.

However, when creating a username for here I didn't think that something that meant attack or assault seemed appropriate - at least it didn't sit well in my head for somewhere where people are being so emotionally open - so I decided to go with another Latinised name and went with Argent, from the latin argentum meaning silver.

Again, no particular reason, I just liked the sound of the word. :-)

They are part of the lyrics of a Counting Crows song.

Gator, yeah, well that's easy. I was tagged with this ridiculous nom de guerre by my ignorant friends (all two of them) up north who still insist that Florida is nothing but a fetid, primordial swamp bustling with savage crocodilians. Well, if they think the reptile population is in overabundance here then maybe they should pay a visit to Louisiana!

So why do I use it? I guess I've gotten used to it over the years and besides, it's easy to spell!

Fidelia, from the Latin fidelis, "faithful". Because it's a big part of who I am.

I use glowinthedarkstars because they are well awesome. when its dark out you can see thier beauty even more. I love things that glow.

Plus the glow in the dark stars you can stick on walls and ceilings just make you feel kinda safe and happy when you look at them.

LOL. Wow it's fascinating to read everyone's thought processes in choosing screen names.

My name is not all that interesting I suppose. Eros is the Greek God of Love/Erotic Passion. And Erosa is the female form of the word; it also interestingly enough means 'substance pertaining to Eros'. 0_0

I guess I'm... an erotic secretion????????

Hah. Here's a video of us performing a song about my screenname. Kinda silly, but kinda fun. (If you can tolerate being upside down for a minute.)
