I was wonder how everyone picked his/her username. There's a lot of unique names here and I'm curious how you decided on yours.

My username is a nickname my friends gave me my first year of college. A lot of people mispronounce my last name, which amused a lot of people. She thought it would be fun to combine the first initial of my name with the mispronunciation of my last name; hence snoogen (pronounced sa-nugent). The 0120 is just a reference to my birthday.

December 13, 2006, 02:47 AM
I was trying to think of a generic username Icould easily remember that would not give away ro much about myself. and since I have at the time recently seen Kill Bill 1&2, I picked the name of the protagonist.

Amanuel is my first name

A"manu"el

Nickname i got in high school ^^

Dragonzair
December 13, 2006, 12:32 PM
I like dragons. And that was a time when I was still into Pokemon :oh But I didn't want to use the real name, so I added the 'z', which sounds prettier. :D

I've been using this since 2000. XD

weiss-raine
December 13, 2006, 01:51 PM
Well, my username weiss-raine is a combination of two. weiss means white and I like the way it sounded so I picked that. raine came from my crush's name and I added an e to make it sound more feminine. After that I combined the two so that's about it I guess.

Tamerlane
December 13, 2006, 03:08 PM
Goodness I have been using this name for years....to the point I can not even really remember where I picked it up. o_O

I know that it is the title of an Edgar Allen Poe poem and that it was the name of a Turkish warlord (who was very brutal).

If someone asks me where the name is from I normally point them in the direction of the poem....but to be very honest I did not read the poem until 2 years ago and I have been using the name long before that.

....it just always has sounded right to me to be using it. ^_______^

I couldn't come up with a username so I just looked at the keyboard and yah... ^^

....it just always has sounded right to me to be using it. ^_______^


Sounds like a streetname in london where they had lots of S&M basements, eh, are you sure it's so you-ish? :oh (j/k)

My username... has been with me for a few years now, Khaludh is the original form, i first used it as the name for my Tomb Prince ( egyptian skeleton lord from the warhammer tabletop miniature battle game - full name: Khaludh III, son of Sekhmett, of Lybaras ), and i later used it as the name of a medieval prince from a country inspired on germany ( named Leitz ) in a story i was writing... When i first got here i had my name as Khaludh, but shortly afterwards i changed it to just "Khal", because everyone kept typoing it... ;____; But now i'm back at my roots :D

ttxdragon
December 13, 2006, 04:07 PM
uhhh.... i won't write the whole history here... it got from 'bigearthdragon88' over 'dragon_on_fire' to 'ttxdragon'


as you can see, all have dragon in it... i love dragons - asian dragons to be more precise, i can't stand the european/celtic versions.
what's more, my chinese zodiac is a earthdragon.
the 'ttx' means tetrodotoxin - a very potent poison. the blowfish is the most widely known animal that contains it, i think.
yeah, so, i love the poisons name and sound and dragons.
so, i combined it...
the reason for the namechanges were in-game things from some games... until i got stuck with 'ttxdragon' and 'ttx' to abbreviate it, if there is a very low char-limit...

nothing spectacular huh?

December 13, 2006, 04:25 PM
when i was 13, i was the only person in my family who was good with maps, and we were moving back across the country for the second time (2000+ miles) and i was relaying instructions to them with a walkie talkie. because of this, they started calling me "rabbit" as my favorite movie was Twister, and the guy with the maps was named rabbit. about a year after that, my girlfriend started calling me Rabbi. that lasted for about a week. we then droped the i, and Rabbs been my sn since i was 14.

LadyHatake
December 13, 2006, 04:55 PM
Hm, let's see. Well, I love Kakashi, and I could see myself married to him, and LadyHatake would be one (formal) way to address the wife of Kakashi, and it sounded cute, so I decided to use it ^^

ijoit3k
December 13, 2006, 05:28 PM
Hm, as for me..ijoi is my nickname since i'm just a little boy use by my family...so i added "tek"(malay Version) to make it sounded like "tech" (english version)...but since tek sounded like tetek(malay) which mean boobs(english).. i use number 3 as substitute for the aph 'e' which is i think cool XD

Hermie
December 13, 2006, 07:42 PM
Well this is the story, all 'bout how
My life got turned upside down...



(Not really. <.<)

My usual online handle is/was Herminator (real name Herman, so it's a pun, not just a random typo of "Terminator"), but decided to have it shortened for practical reasons.

Ichimaru Gin n Tonic
December 13, 2006, 08:33 PM
It's obvious that i'm a fan of Ichimaru Gin. I added the tonic part cause when i was in my second year of high school, Oasis (one of my favourite band) made their debut album with their single Supersonic. They mention gin & tonic somewhere in the song and i just happened to be listening to it while i was registering here.

Xophien
December 14, 2006, 05:21 AM
Xophien is the name of a character in a fanfic I wrote a long time ago. I was looking for an original name, and ended up with this one, that is an anagram of Phoenix, my past username. Since there are just too many people called phoenix out there, I decided to keep Xophien (plus I like the sound of it :amuse).

I have never been to London and S&M things scare me.

.........and this is why people get pointed to the poem instead. :oh

Ayah
December 14, 2006, 11:13 AM
I was stumped on thinking of a username when I was about to register in a certain message board so I decided to use the last 4 letters of my surname spelled backwards :p

Well, somebody probably told you this before. in my language, Ayah means Dad/Father. :D

Ayah
December 14, 2006, 11:37 AM
I know :sweat Well, I didn't until I joined MH. I've also heard from conan that a verse from the Qur'an is called an ayah too.

EDIT:
2222nd post!

December 14, 2006, 11:47 AM
Okay, how I get it? o.O

No secret actually. It was ight off the bat. I thought what is it for an e-handle on MH, so then I decided on "baxteristic". As far as I'm concern, no meanings at all in this world. Try to google it. You'll be directed back to MH or the IGN Titan's Quest Vault page ^^ (yes, baxteristic on that site is me)

But recently, I shorten it to only "bax".

My alternative nick - Taheca (which you can find as my deviantart, msn acc or last.fm nick), is my first name in Al Bhed <.<

AreoXIII
December 16, 2006, 08:41 AM
Well I always use Areo in a username because...Nintendo Power sends me magazines and they spelled my name wrong(Arieo)so I took out some letters and put Areo because people pronounce my real name like that. Its pronounced Aaah-rio(the kinda aah you say when your dentist asks you to take your tongue out)

:yondaime

December 18, 2006, 02:14 AM
My name is a jumble of my crush's name. Boy, was I obsessed... But I use it for everything now, since it's just easier. Sorta my tribute to her... Don't judge me!

Leen
December 18, 2006, 02:49 AM
It's my name. :nuts
Last time, we(a few mods and I) had a debate whether to use Eileen or Leen. The poll ended up favoring Eileen so that's how this name came about. Leen is still my nickname all over this forum for some except for LadyHatake who calls me Ein. XD

December 18, 2006, 03:05 AM

I've been using this since 2000. XD


Yay, Pokémon! X3

My nick was originally my character's nick, from back in 1998. I had just made up a character for use in the Jazz Jackrabbit 2 fandom, but he needed a name.
...What better place to get a character name than a word-search puzzle?
I don't really know what I was thinking, either, but it was a shaped puzzle and right there on one side was 'T A L E C', and I thought, That sounds cool. I'll use that!

And then when I joined the message board of said fandom, I needed a username. So I stole my character's. And I've used it ever since. =D

DemonDays
December 19, 2006, 01:50 PM
Im a big Gorillaz fan and DemonDays is the name of one of their albums.
Its the name i mostly use all the time now. Occasionally its beat_masterxo.

BlueChild
December 19, 2006, 07:12 PM
i was watching the movie "Hidalgo", with Viggo mortensen as protagonist ---> Viggo Fangirl
and an indian woman called him "Blue Child". i really liked that, so i stuck to it and it became my username

ILUVATAR
December 27, 2006, 04:45 PM
well many people when they see my nickname they think it says I-LUV-ATAR = I love my avatar or something xD
anyhow ILUVATAR is what you could call a god in Middle Earth (aka in J.R.R. Tolkien's Trilogy Lord of the Rings)
NOT that i think of my self a god. i liked the name, none else used it and i kept it :D
i would have logged in as Lord_Sephiroth which is my most used username and more beloved (from the moment i have Sephiroth as a god _o_ :D :rofl) but...... >.> i don't actually remember why i didn't o.o
........

aky0
December 30, 2006, 07:03 PM
at first, it was ky0, but a lot of people are confusing about it, because there are a lot of kyo, even a music crew named kyo. So I decided to add the first letter of my real name on it, so now, it's aky0.

Why I chose kyo ? because I like the character Kyo Kusanagi, from SNK -> King of fighters.

juUnior
January 02, 2007, 10:30 AM
Nohing special really. I was having everywhere where i was to have to logged i had "Mati" due to having it in real life before firiends, but where i was, it was already in use, so i figured I would use Piccolo's nickname on the Tenkaichi budoaki "junior", but it was also popluar .. so i added second "U" like with some accent to it like saying "dzuuunior" and when i first started using it I'm using till nowadays. ^^

Nami
February 11, 2007, 06:16 AM
A friend of mine did a Japanese translation of my name and it ended up as 'Nami Tomonori'.
Tomonori seems such a mouthful, so I ended up using Nami (easier to remember)...but come to think of it, I've never double check on whether is it correct...what if it means something else?? :omg!!

bakashijinsan
February 11, 2007, 07:32 AM
was a bit curious about the japanese language when I was in elementary and me and my bro stumbled on a copy of DragonBall manga back then. We wanted to read it so we bought a cheap japanese dictionary. I was reading it and saw that the word shijin means poet. I was in to poetry back then. Later as the years go by, I learned the word baka and san so I added them with shijin to produce bakashijinsan which in my head means Mr. Stupid Poet. Dunno if its correct though, but I've been using it for years. :amuse

Goji
February 13, 2007, 03:01 PM
Mine comes from two words: the "Go" comes from Gohan ('cause he is my favorite character from DragonBall Z, which was my first manga/anime I ever read/saw) and the "ji" comes from PJ which is an abbreviation of my name "Pieter-Jan".

But I thought "Goj" didn't sound so good, so I added the "i" at the end.

And voila Goji was born! ^^

sahugani
February 13, 2007, 03:21 PM
sahugani comes from the first PS2 game i ever played, Summoner, and despite its less than fantastic reviews, its one of my favorites. i ended up using it as my username in many locations cause i liked the name and i rarely found that it was already used so i never had to alter it with numbers or symbols

February 20, 2007, 06:05 PM

My turn!

My username is a fraction of my surname, read backwards. The reason I use this username is... I don't know:notrust , for me it's kind of cool. I don't know what others think, and I just "give the other fella hell...". :darn

May 04, 2007, 06:01 AM

btw, amar is my real name.. while kun is.. you know.. all of read manga so you should have known what is kun by now :amuse

Dark soul within
May 04, 2007, 08:13 AM
I'm afraid the reasoning behind mine isn't nearly as interesting as some others. I just like things like being out when there's a full moon, shadows, the colour black etc etc and i have quite a dark sense of humour therefore I decided to create a name base on that context & came up with Dark soul within...it' not very original I'll grant you but when I was creating my profile i was in a bit of a rush & didn't put that much consideration into it. :XD

Az3r
May 04, 2007, 07:55 PM

Roanapur
May 06, 2007, 05:27 PM
It's based on an internet meme/IRL slang that a few friends of mine use quite often. Since I like to make gifs, I got the idea to start making Haterade gifs to use as avys and sigs on another forum(NF, for those that would be curious).

I liked the final results of them so much that I decided to change my name to Haterade on that forum, and decided that at any subsequent forum that I join I would use the name.

Ironically, despite this name, I'm one of the most laid back and mellow ppl out there.

I got my nick from Kingdom Hearts II. I don't particularly like the game, but the first area is called itsumobasho, which was translated into "The Usual Place", which I thought had a good ring to it, so I used this for my Japanese nickname. My english nickname (Reno) comes from the city of Reno, Nevada, the location of Video Armageddon, from the movie The Wizard. ^^

Pollux

Pollux is name of the dog in the children's television le Manège Enchanté (programme known as the Magic Roundabout in English if I remember correctly). A friend called me that because I had long hair... and it stayed.

Deadfire
June 27, 2007, 08:12 PM
Deadfire Noun

1. An attack usually done with a rocket launcher (however other weapons are not unheard of) without the aid of aiming or anything that may help to allow for a greater chance to hit the target. The target in this case is instead fired upon with more firepower then what would seem necessity. Seen in many multiplayer FPS games, where it is seen at least one person using this tactic. More commonly it is seen done by players called "Rocket whores" firing volleys of rockets in their general direction of their targets.

2. ME :P

Judas from Tales of Destiny 2. Basically, he is my favorite character in the Tales series, so I just named after him but change it to (kind of like) the romanji of the name. Also, because this is an English forums. ^_^"

MadDog
June 28, 2007, 09:32 AM
MadDog comes from a rugby nickname that my teamates gave me. It's one of those stupid things where everyone gets a nickname, but mine stuck for some reason. Can't say that I get mad all that often, but I'm a big fan of dogs.

Paz42
June 28, 2007, 05:51 PM
Paz is short for Pazuzu which has been my screen name on many websites since back in the day on Mplayer if any one remembers that it was shortend to paz by my Ex girlfriend who would only call me that rather then my real name or general real life nickname and 42 is the meaning of life from hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

My old nick was Decopter75. At this time I had also problems in french with -ir verbs. So, it was a short thing.

July 17, 2007, 10:54 PM
I read Phillip Pulman's book the trilogy of the dark matter
And on the second book one of the character uses a dagger called Aesahaettr which means god destroyer but the purpose of the dagger itself wasn't supposed to kill god.
(confused? yes me too but I understand eventually. well not going Out of Topic)

somehow somebody has subscribed to mangahelpers using Aesahaettr so I decided to reborn it. That's how my name comes up

I usually used my first name, Ferran, but got tired of it and started thinking about a new nickname. Don't know how, I typed "damnz" instead of "damn" in the irc and liked how did it look, so I put it as my new nickname :p

Mashmaro

Marshmallow---Marshamallow-Mashmaro

The thing started in December 2005...I was with my little brother (orokanaru ototo yo) buying
sweets and I thought in it...the magic word. Damn spelling mistake! I registered DA with Marshamallow nick. MarSHmallow was already taken...In 2006, I bought a yummy Japanese marshmallow, read the letters...I-chi-go ma-shi-ma-ro (Yeha, like an anime of the same name!) Does "shi" in foreign words pronounce like "sh"? (or the Japanese Ashita) So it! Mashmaro! 8D

ILUVATAR
August 07, 2007, 03:19 PM
ah ^^ what can i say in this one. this nickname i use here is the one i picked my self and it's the name of the god (or divine entity or whatever) in Middle Earth, the realm J.R.R. Tolkien created in his trilogy (mainly) The Lord Of The Rings.
The nickname i am known mostly, especially here in Greece is ELLOUPO..... at first i missheard someone saying the word "the wolf" in spanish - the correct word is "el lobo" i think - but it sounded nice to me and i kept it. most people here call me like that after some incidents in the internet cafe i hang out :smile-big
many people i have asked have already forgotten my real name and just call me ELLOUPO :rofl

but i recently changed it to Fires.. I don't know why , it just passed my mind and i said: this is my username and that's my story..Well, have to say that Firetyrano is too childish and i think that was the reason...anyway...

October 06, 2007, 10:09 PM
I used to own a internet board called "Força Cósmica" (Cosmic Force - yeah, it sounds retarded, but I was 12 in that time), wanted a nick to combine with it, then Regente Cósmico (Cosmic Regent - lol) came out. As the time went by I cut the second word and stayed just as Regente.

Imperium
October 07, 2007, 08:19 AM
my username, is i think latin for "power".....so thats really about it, it just means power!!!!

Gold Knight
October 17, 2007, 12:12 AM
Gold Knight.

You know, I really don't know why it popped into my head. I've always been a big fantasy fan as far as reading about it, watching movies (such as Willow or LoTR), playing RPGs, and drawing it. But the funny thing is I was always more into the mages, rogues, and archers, especially archers, instead of the knights and fighters and whatnot.

My first internet handle was Philster043, a combo of a nick some people called me, and my football number, dating back to when I still played high school football (exactly 10 years ago now, wow.)

Anyway, that didn't work very well for some forums that I signed up at some three years ago, especially the ones that had more colorful nicks. That's when I decided that I had gotten tired of my older name and decided I had to come up with something new. Being a fantasy fanatic that I was, initially I tried to think of something that would work with "Archer" in the nick.

But somewhere along the way I just decided on "Gold Knight." When I thought of it, it just seemed so nice looking to me, kinda majestic, and at the same time gave the impression that I'd be somebody that people could depend on to help 'em out. So I went along with it. I think it's been a good name.

ddadain
October 17, 2007, 05:01 PM

my username, angsana, is a tree. a type of tree that planted in almost every main street in jakarta. tall with many long branches at top forming a canopy-like appearance. couldn't find English equivalent for angsana though. well, many of these old trees were cut off for innercity busway projects ;_; and this name keep popping inside my head so i decided to use it.

kleomarlo
October 23, 2007, 04:34 AM

Franckie
October 23, 2007, 04:23 PM
My username is a nickname my friends address me as. A few years back, a stranger mistaked me for someone he personally knew (Frankie), and for reasons which are not clear-cut to me, my friends began to call me "Frankie".

I spell "Frankie" as "Franckie" though because I simply think it's a cooler way to spell the name.

The cool thing about skyking is that it also consist of many different way to interpret. For example, I think the sky is an interesting thing. The sky is vast and many use it as a way to express the vast oppoturnity. With all that being said, I based my username from Air Gear.

DouVerdugo
October 29, 2007, 09:19 PM
Well, I misspelled Doo for Dou which is Navajo for 'and' (although it is still pronouced like that, as in "do'h"). The verdugo part is from the RE4 action figure in my room. It also means executioner so, hell, why not? I thought.

Crayola
November 04, 2007, 04:21 AM
Hmm... I Originally liked a girl with the Initials KC and created kornycrayon as a name which was my old name on this forum. Then I jumped from kornycrayon to Crayola because it sounded better and since my real name is Raymond or Ray for short, then it's easier to see the RAY in cRAYola.

The thing was...that username was already taken. So, being the Rurouni Kenshin fan that I was and still am, I put "ken" in ^-^""

baboysai
November 07, 2007, 09:46 AM
mine is baboysai, which was a mockery for battousai. Baboy in Filipino means pig. So it's like pig-sai. And I thought that was really funny so I chose that name. And I'm a really lazy person who loves to eat, so I thought that would be just great. :P

One day long ago I was signing up for a forum and couldn't think up of a name that wasn't taken. I cracked open a bag of Cheetos, and somehow I didn't think it had the "dangerously cheesy" flavor that it normally had. Hence, Flavor.

It turns out that the bag of Cheetos was kinda old and the bag had been open for quite a while. I got a stomachache later. :(

my real name is Chrisoffer.
when i was 10 people started calling me Boffen.
when a word end with -en or -et in swedish its the exact same thing as putting a "the"
in front of an english word.
so what ive done is just english-ize my real nickname :nuts
The Boff = Boffen

simple as that

actually its more than a nickname by now... i introduce myself as Boffen to people and i actually ried to change it officially but it didn sit well with the authorities for some reason.. meh, thats not relevant

Gr1mmy
January 06, 2008, 07:58 PM
Gr1mmy.

Let me think.
In middle school someone called me a squirrel. And shortly after the most depressing person on Earth. So, I was dubbed Gr1mSquirrel.

Of course, I didn't really like it, so I shortened it to Gr1mmy ^_^

I'm not really depressing anymore.

Amatersu
January 19, 2008, 03:30 AM
I was watching Naruto, and got to the part where Itachi uses Amaterasu. I thought that sounds cool, looks cool, but I don't like the last "a." So I shortened it to Amatersu. This was before I did research into Amaterasu and learned it's the name for the Shinto sun goddess. It's the male version, I guess =p

Yun Min
January 19, 2008, 05:19 PM
My username actually is a Korean name. But I'm not quite sure what it means... I originally chose it for it's meaning and the fact that it sounded cool.

Previous names I'd gone under were really sucky... So one day I decided to find myself a decent username. Because I'm weird, I like searching baby name websites, and, because I have a Korean friend, I wanted to see if I could get a Korean name. So I ended up with Yun Min. And I've been under that for over half a year now. It's fitting.

igotthegoods
January 19, 2008, 08:52 PM
my username stems from an episode of my favorite tv show (mr. show with bob and david). this is a sketch comedy show and there is a running gag in one episode where one guy (dino stamatopoulos) says to another guy (david cross) "you got the goods" in multiple sketches.

i realize it sounds kind of lame here, but he says it in a funny way, in funny situations, etc......i guess you have to see it to appreciate it :p

I wrestled my username from the fiery clutches of a dragon controlled by a Ninth level mage of the Third Dimension.

Alternatively my nickname is Moshe and I got bored and started playing around with wordplay.

hmm en means "one or a" in Swedish, so your name is basically admire "a" kiwi.. if you play with the letters abit

lol but admire takes up the "e" so theres only the "n" left
it cant be admire a kiwi when there isnt an extra "en"

May 08, 2008, 02:29 PM
I know.. but well... n is a short for and, Admire... and kiwi.. like admire... and obey!..

Okay now i'm making a fool outta myself..

I've been told multiple times in my life that I am a Blasphemer, so over the course of my forum stints across the anime/games/comics/gfx communities I've had the word "Blasphemy" in my user name: ".Digital-Blasphemy.","Horrendous-Blasphemy","TheBlasphemy","DSMBlasphemy", etc. So, I simply decided on Blasphemy.

I am a fan of anime/manga characters that basically white hair:XD Hence the name Shiro :), which means white in japanese but there is deeper meaning why i chose it though it was the name of my first pet :(.

Kazi

It's quite simple, i named me in a german board "Mr_Kazekage" to refer to gaara, because i simply like this char :amuse
the users there called me in short: Kazi
to spare me the hard work to type this long nick, i decided to take the short one xD

My username is derived from the colour white..i also like white haired characters like Sephiroth and Raven from FFVIII..

Aikoh
September 13, 2008, 03:14 PM
I have used "Aiko" as a Japanese alias ever since I got into anime and manga and it turns out that it means about the same thing as my actual name, but I never used it on forums before because the name was so common that it was bound to be taken on all the larger forums. But I have decided that I wanted to start using it again, and I had initially thought about using "Aikou" but I decided against it because there was still a chance of that name being taken and it would change the meaning of it entirely seeing as that's not how it's spelled in kanji, and I replaced the "u" with an "h" instead since that was an old way of romanizing the "ou" sound that's not quite as common anymore. The "ou" sound isn't a correct romanization, no, but at least with the "h" the meaning won't be changed and I can still use the name. Well, it works!

Oh god Heroes of Might and Magic 2... i remember playing that when i was like 7 or 8, i hated it but it was still fun.

Onto my nickname i was just going through random names for IRC when i thought of Tofu and it started sticking, before i was using zoneykid(if you see zoneykid anywhere that's me) which i made when i was like 6 for msn-games(i liked age of empires) by thinking "hey.. i'm zoned out and i'm a kid... so... how about zoneykid!" and that stuck since until i hit upon Tofu.(though i still use zoneykid if Tofu doesn't work)

True Blade

Fire Emblem. It's the upgraded class of a Swordmaster which is the upgraded class of a Myrmidon.

Coincidentally, it shortens to TB, which I used to have. Thus why I am so skinny!

betsuni
October 02, 2008, 05:38 PM
Mine nickname is due to a game in my school called "nothing", you call someone and then you say that was nothing... my class even kept a score of the number of "nothing". Because "nothing" in japanese is "Betsuni", i realized that was a good original nickname. that´s the story...

Integration of 'Tsubasa' and 'xxxHolic' which also describes my complete addiction to TRC. I'd been wanting to start posting on mangahelepers but couldn't think of a name. It came to me when I was drying some dishes one evening and I knew it was the one.

Neo
January 29, 2009, 10:32 AM
When I was at the Univ, in the programming course (which is not a core subject for us), my mates were living hell with it, and I found it rather easy, even nice. I started to help others, and got more skills. After a while some of my friends started to tease me saying things like I could see code in everywhere and, since those where the times of Matrix Reloaded, then they named me Neo, the one to save their semester's grades :-)

Besides, I'm also serious, calm, quiet and stiff :-), so Neo fits me in kinda well.

Also sometimes I use Ryddle, as to show the puzzling I can be ;-) and, as the spanish form of my favourite villain, Mr. Tom Riddle.

shinsengumi
February 09, 2009, 11:28 PM
i use this nick for over 3 years in different forums.i really don't know why i picked it since i'm not a huge fan of shinsengumi but at that time there was an arcade fighting game called Last Blade 2 which i played a lot and my best 2 chars were both from shinsengumi.
one is Keiichiro Washizuka--> http://www.emugifs.emuita.it/lastbladeng12.gif
and the other is Kojiroh Sanada-->http://www.freewebs.com/epic-wars/KojirohSanada.gif .
so these two caused me to grow a liking for shinsengumi.

by the way i happened to see this post on the first page(which was sent in 2006)

I know that it is the title of an Edgar Allen Poe poem and that it was the name of a Turkish warlord (who was very brutal).
it really surprised me to see this =),but actually Tamerlane was more of a Mongol than Turkish.to be precise,his country was a complete mixture of the two in language and culture but he always had wars against other turkish countries at the time,which we see as our real ancestors.some books say he's turkish and some say mongol but all the turkish people (in turkey) see him as mongol.
and i hadn't realized your nick was actually referring to him,even though i saw you many times.it's because in turkish we call him Timur. like tea-moor :p ok..ok.. i know, where did this unnecessery information come from and why?i don't know,i just feelt like saying =) that's why i'll keep it in spoiler tags.
