What's your real name?
I just got this idea for a thread from the second page of the Saddam Hussein Captured page... We all actually have names! like, actual ones! so we could write them down, eh? and then they would be written. So I was thinking that maybe everyone could say their name, and maybe a little back story on why they were named that and what crazy and groovy events led up to their naming!

I'll kick it off:

Me name's Ben Karon. My mom wanted to name me Sal but my dad was like, "No." some other names they tried were (I am not kidding) Cecil, Cyril, Irah, and Harvey. (thank god they settled on 'Ben'!)

Ben means 'beloved of the gods' which is just plain wrong, because if there is a god he/she is prolly real pissed at me for not believing in him all this time!

Oh, and yeah. This is how my name would look if you were to write it in supa-crappy MS paint.

You mean I gotta type all that again?

btw: Danny. How is your last name pronounced? I keep saying it like Ing-an. Or is the first N silent, like Gan?

My name is Israel, but I hail from York, Pennsylvania USA.

I was born on a US Air Force Base in Madrid Spain.

My bone marrow was replaced with Adamantium when I was 18.

When I get mad, I burst out in a fit of.... well... Rage. hehe...

3 of the above are true

My last name is pronounced "Non". The G is just there to confuse everyone.

Michael J. McKinley, but you can call me Mike.

Heh, I'm lucky with the name thing as all the previous male McKinley's got stuck with what is considered the ancestral name for all of us or something which is "Fremonce." My older brother has it for a middle name, as does my father and grandfather. My dad hated it though, and finally broke the mold with me and my younger brother and gave us fairly normal names.
