Do you like your name?

Post by KaneGR4 on Tue 5 Nov 2013 - 16:10

I saw this thread over at TSR, and it threw up a lot of weird and wonderful responses. Also, a lot of people here don't have their name in their Gamertag. So please do tell you're name as well!

For example:
First name: Kane - Yes I like it, It's quite unique and I prefer that spelling compared to 'Cain' (Sorry, XPR ChicaiN Razz).
Surname: Kilroy - Again I like it. 'Kilroy was here'.

My middle name doesn't begin with K, I get asked that a lot. It is in fact, David. Although it was very nearly Senna. I do wish my middle name actually was​ Senna.

I'm fine with my name. Michael and Mike are very common, I only use the Mikey variant in racing purposes.

My last name may be common elsewhere, but Johannes is rather uncommon here in the States. I have a cousin with the exact same name, and he holds office as the United States Secretary of Interior. So I find that kind of cool as well.

I like my name. Very unique... I've only ever met one person with the same name, and they were 5 years old.

My surname is a bit of a pain though. Most people seem to mispronounce it somehow and get the P and L the wrong way around.

I guess Oscar is ok, its got "car" in it so I'm happy with that, I prefer the surname though. Only found out about a year ago the "Mangan" was one of the biggest Gaelic clans in the west of Ireland about 700 years ago. Like Stan a fair amount of people find it hard to say. Razz

With a surname like that I'd definitely have it in my Gamertag.

Bradley Wingard
Bradley is alright, not too common in Australia but i wish i was names Xavier,
middle name is Mark, people always think it's short for Marcos but it isn't,
Wingard, i like my last name because of where it's from

so I have relatives in England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Italy, Greece, and Iceland, but my nickname is both German and Norwegian,
Wingard (pronounced Vingyard over there) is a Farmer (Germany) or Farm house (Norway), and me being me, i love the whole eating what the earth makes, not what the factories make, the concept of my ancestors having grown their own food is good.

also, turns out Wingard was a massive family back in 1400s Norway hosting one of the biggest Viking 'clans' in Norways History, and in 1500s Scotland, Forbes (my mothers side) had a massive castle, right up north, and was really wealthy, until my great (how ever many times) grandpa 'fiddled' with one of the house maides and got deported over seas and eventually ended up here

According to one story, it was reported that German intelligence found the phrase on captured American equipment. This began leading Hitler to believe that Kilroy could be the name or codename of a high-level Allied spy. At the time of the Potsdam Conference in 1945, it was rumored that Stalin found "Kilroy was here" written in the VIPs' bathroom, prompting him to ask his aides who Kilroy was.
