We had just watched Zorro, and given my tendancy for legendary exploits ( ;-) ) Someone scrunched 'Zorro' and 'Nathan' together to form 'Norro'. I like it and have yet to find it taken in the lego world... Unlike the rest of you I don't get much further online...

Threads like these are bound to be repeated... on any board.
Let's see... I barely remember where mine comes from.
I used to play Starcraft (You know, that Space game with Terran, Zerg, Protoss, etc) on BattleNET, so I needed a username to match. "Commander Wolf" just happen to fit perfectly at the time, and I've used it ever since. That was like almost 4 or 5 years ago now.

I have some older names ie. cork and PaperClip (in Settlers III). but these days the simple names are impossible to grab so mostly I have different names for different services. Oh, now I remember my first nik was ACE, just because it was so easy to enter names into arcade machines and Spectrum 48 games I used to play :)) I'd forgotten that.

When i was a kid, i was playing those arcade games a lot. Didn't really feel like putting in my initials in the hi-scores table (too far one from another) so as most do i mostly entered AAA or BBB...
Then i eventually wanted to be able to locate my score on the table so i went for CAB (it was what looked the most like a word to me - though i didn't know it was an actual word in english). It's been my gaming nick and then became my online nick in the early 90'.
Close friends then made it a little more friendly by calling me Cabby. There you are. :-)

When I was a lad... actually we used to call just about everything ace for a while, just one of those playground words that caught on. What an ace time that was, ho ho, not!
Not forgetting ACE Rimmer from Red Drawf, was a pretty cool character. 'Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!' or something similar if I remember.
Kikuichimonji: I think I've seen the ACE multi vit carroty drink thing here in Germany, not been brave enough to try it yet. It would be a bit like buying a chocholate bar called Yummy!
btw. where did the name eurobricks come from?

Asuka is the name of the old Japanese capital of the 6th centur, and gave the
Asuka period its name. Derived from this it´s also a fairly common japanese
given name. The term Asuka can be illustrated by two chinese characters „to fly“
and „bird“. The Asuka period started at the end of the 6th century and lasted
about 100 years and was the first to accept Buddhism and is also known for its
significant artistic, social, and political transformations.
Well.... too much history i guess....
And it was much more simpler....
Because it´s also the name of a river near this town (....), and there is a common poem
from an unknown poet. Let me try to translate:
„What remains invariable on this world persevered? It resembles the Asuka river, whose depths of yesterday became shallow today.“
And i am interested in chinese and japanese culture because i am interested in Zen.
Because i´m so zensitively.... ;-)

Well, - I love it! *wub* Thank you so much!
Then I saw this thread I didn´t come across since I´m "living" here. Very interesting and very funny, too.
All I can tell you about my Avatar/Screen name is written in my "Hello! My name is..." posting. The rest is completed by my subtitle. *sweet*
I´m using this name on almost every Lego addicted site in the net (Brickset, Brickshelf, Peeron, 1000steine...), but nowhere else. It has to be in use for around 3 years I´d guess.
By the way:

I'm an actor and my screen name comes from my two favorite roles from college
hinckley-John Hinckley, would-be presidential assassin in Stephen Sondheim's Assassins
39-Pontius Pilate, orders 39 lashes for Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar
I'm sure you had all been wondering...
