How did you get your name

Just curious how you all came up with your screen names. Why you call yourself what you do, and what your name means to you. If the reason is private or you just want to maintain that air of mystery, I'm sure I'll understand.

My name has nothing special to do with who I think I am, or my personality (although the ladies will tell you different). It is simply a "Simpsons" reference.
Homer wanted to change his name in one episode. Not knowing what he wanted to change it to, he looked around for Ideas. He found the name MaxPower when he looked at his power plant control panel, and saw a dial which had a power level setting marked, "Max Power".

Guess I'm just a damn copy cat.

It just poured out. Contrary to what most people think, my name doesn't actually mean anything. I just thought it was funny.

My screen name came from the band "Children of Bodom". I call myself the "Child of Bodom" after the band, who actually got their name from a mass murder in Finland. Before then it was Sinergy. Anyways, back on subject, I love the name Children of Bodom, but i wanted to be the slightest bit creative. Shows how creative I am. ;) My screen name to me is awesome. I just love the band, and want to be just like them, course thats me, Mr. Goth boy who wants to be just like a death metal band who worships satan, but hey, thats just what im into. Got a problem with that? then back off

I saw X-Men 2 and was completely enamered with the whole X-Men thing. I was reading an X-Man novel and they called Rogue a steel magnolia, so I used rogue_magnolia for my e-mail and magnolia for my screen name. (cuz it was shorter.)
