Origins of Ruler Names
03:26:05 Dec 25th 07 - Mr. Agent Clamps:

Ok so we all notice that some people have really weird ruler names that seem like they might make sense if they were explained =p. Here post the story of how you got your name or what it means or what it is a reference to etc. I'm going to get the ball rolling by making wild fabrications about how certain people came up with their names in hopes of calling them to the thread to defend themselves by giving us the real story XP

03:30:34 Dec 25th 07 - Duke Epyon The Weirdgrivi:

it came to me in a dream......sorta :S

see if you can guess where I got my name ;)

03:44:35 Dec 25th 07 - Mr. Agent Clamps:

Oh ya myself. My name is from the cartoon Futurama. For anyone who doesn't get that show at home it is like about space-traveling package delivery guys. Once they meet a mafia crime gang who are robots and one of the gangsters is called Clamps cuz he has clamps for hands and likes to rough people up with them. 

04:07:51 Dec 25th 07 - Sir XelNaga:

Starcraft, enuff said

04:07:58 Dec 25th 07 - Mr. Agent Clamps:

Wild allegation time.... =p

Doughnut: Named after his first sexual experience.

Xiax: Named for his first word; it was later found that he was only choking on a rubber nipple but the name had stuck.

Salamon: The fish....obviously....(insert ironic tone)

Phoenix Fire: Named after a brand of lube.... yeeeeaaaaahhhhhh........

Deadly Poop: So obvious =p

Scientist: Named after his encyclope*beep*nowledge of ladies and also chemistry, but mostly the ladies

Vengeance: Named after the oath his mother made to his father during the child's particularly painful delivery

Survivor: named from a popular television program..."american idol"

Anyway anyone else who'd like to make wild allegations about where people got their names, in hopes of getting them up here, go nuts =p

04:42:03 Dec 25th 07 - Mr. Xiax:

I'm not sure how I could make that sound when I'm choking but it is actually just a derivation of my actual name since I'm not very creative.

04:54:47 Dec 25th 07 - Mr. Soc:

swifty............ due to his extreme quickness and agility after hours. :) he gave the foundation for the phrase "minute man"

12:38:00 Dec 25th 07 - Duke Epyon The Weirdgrivi:

Soccer: probably has to do with some sort of sport.... maybe golf!!

13:52:38 Dec 25th 07 - Pirate Lewatha:

16:56:36 Dec 25th 07 - Mr. Agent Clamps:

Ohhh k... someone posted a joke which I suppose might have been mean or something but it was all for fun but then my post responding to it "haha yeah but that's so true" was deleted...I'm so confused about modding here =/

18:20:54 Dec 25th 07 - Duke Luta Mor:

Well since I have no consistant name, you can call me "CK the Fat."  Which actually comes from a little parody newspaper my brother and I did many years ago... CK was the arrogant bastard character.  Also why my first character, The Fat, wasn't well liked...

Sometimes I also go by New Era Orchestra, which is the name I write music under.

22:02:58 Dec 25th 07 - Sir Iwasfrozen VI:

My English Teacher made me write an essay a year back entitled "I was frozen on the spot." Later, when regestering for AQ i wrote my user-name as I was frozen on the stop.

Later, and many browser games after I shortened it to Iwasfrozen, and the rest as they say is history. :)

10:14:43 Dec 26th 07 - Duke Salamon:

heh.... erm... Wheel of time = best :D :D

Erm ... Epyon = Gundam :P cool gundam tbh.... i made an impression on it in Armored core 3 : silent line and Last Raven :P

Erm... My name well... i had just watched Lotr and i was in the S mood.... i had started out with Baldwin because i thought of Count Baldwin of Edessa or King Baldwin of Jerusalem (Crusades) but it didnt stick and it wasnt fun role playing because people referred to me as Alec Baldwin :P and i had nowhere to go w/ that..(as an rper). My initial name (when i joined lgc) then was Salmer or Salmex So i tried to change my name to something to Sarumon( i didnt know how to spell that back then :P... and spelt it Salomon or something like that) then I just spelt it with Salamon and it stuck... tho there was a period where i switched between Baldwin or Salamon, but thats over and Im a full fishy now :P

10:41:15 Dec 26th 07 - Sir Spoon:

13:54:36 Dec 26th 07 - Sir Gaius Aureliae:

The first name that I used and seriously thought of was Hytlodeo, which was the name of a character in Thomas More´s Utopia, who has the same first name as I. Later, I changed it to Aurelius because of Marcus Aurelius, an emperor of Rome. I liked the name Aurelius, and thus decided to keep it as a second name and just change the first for the eras to come...

14:16:55 Dec 26th 07 - Mr. Clone V:

As for Valar, I did not take it from Tolkien, its short for Valar Morghulis which means all men must die in George R. R. Martins A Song of Fire and Ice.

As for Brent Corrigan, just google who that is if you want to know. 

15:23:13 Dec 26th 07 - Mr. Haywood Jablowme:

23:03:43 Jan 13th 08 - Prince Cephorus Septim IV:

The last name of the third era Emperors of Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion is Septim.

The first name of the first Septim Emperor was Tiber.

Other Emperors in that game were named Cephorus and Pelagius.

The other names were common Roman names and a couple I made up: Aesius, Lucias, Salius, Gaius, and Calus.
