What's the story behind your username and avatar?

Why did you pick that particular name you bear now, and what about your avatar? Is there a story behind them, or did you just pick the first thing that came to mind?

Jacoby is 'Jacob' - my name - with a spiffy 'y' added. And my avatar is the very amazing classical guitar playing singer/songwriter Devendra Banhart.

deviljet88... split that into 3 parts and magically you get: devil, jet and 88. devil, just some tag on people told me to have, Jet short for Jethro (my name...), and 88 is some superstitious lucky number.

Avatar is of Keira for obvious reasons. I like this one more since its one of her younger pictures, a few years ago I think.

Well, my name is my name, so . On the other forum I used to be KeiraUK. Possibly the worst username ever thought of.

My avatar changes according to what I'm 'into' at the particular time. I've had so many different avatars. At the moment it is a picture of the gorgeous Christiano Ronaldo.

edit: its Uma Thurman now... it keeps changing...

Edit on 17th September because someone bumped the thread! It's Natalie Portman at the moment, folks.

apoggy comes from my initials APO and my childhood nickname Oggy. My somewhat distinctive avatar is from a cartoon (obviously) in which the cat is called Oggy, I think. I've never actual watched it only heard of it but when looking for a cool avatar I came across this and it stuck.

I assumed it was after the pirate with the flaming beard from POTC!

Narya is a name I found in the LOTR appendices, I just think it's so pretty. And my avatar is of one of my favorite movies, Show Me Love, AKA Fucking Amal. It's Swedish...has anyone seen it?

I just realized I forgot to explain mine, so lemme remedy that mistake real quick:
Moe is my nickname, in RL as well as Cyberspace for a long time now. And the avatar is Moe from Calvin&Hobbes, one of the best cartoons ever made.

I am A Cliff.
Short of acliffalay, which has a fairly long history and story behind it, including a guy called mushood, ridiculous nicknames, and the way he used to speak. He was a cock. Propogated by a guy called Luc, who thought he was cool. Little did he know, he was a cock.

My avatar needs no introduction...

My name is Richard. I was planning on changing it to Dick, but I didn't want to be known as one. My avatar is nothing special, it's from the horrible and my personal favorite franchise that is "Friday The 13th". He can kill all of you.

EDIT: It's not there anymore.

Kelsey is my name...and I don't have an avatar, since I've been too lazy to go find the one I had on the last kkw...which was Scarlett Johansson smoking. I just thought she looked cool.

Dragon, because I used to play L5R (Legend of the Five Rings), an RPG based on medieval Japanese, Chinese, and Korean myth, and my favorite clan of the game was... the Dragon Clan.

Rat, because I was born in the year of the Rat, 1984.

Besides, it sounded much better than RatDragon.

lol, no. Although I've always said he reminds me of a pirate because of the shirt in the full picture.

He's genius though and I love him....I wanted to make an avatar out of this picture. But, with the hand cropped off, it doesn't look right.
