I hate the sun.

The rest of the story: I got the nickname when I was 6 or 7 from a slew of quirks and odd coincidences that culminated in a real life Twilight Zone-ish lost and found episode. Apparently, it was traumatic (I don't remember it the same way other people do). Anyway it stuck, sort of evolved and became permanently lodged in my inner-world mythology.

But mostly I just hate the sun.

Love & monkey brains,
The Mole Person

Mine is actually a mishmash of my real name, and erm...Bedlam. A nuthouse. It seemed apt.

From Wikipiddle:

Quote:
The Bethlem Royal Hospital is a psychiatric hospital located in London, United Kingdom and part of the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. Although no longer in its original location and buildings, it is recognised as the world's first and oldest institution to specialise in the mentally ill. It has been variously known as St. Mary Bethlehem, Bethlem Hospital, Bethlehem Hospital and Bedlam.


Quote:
The word bedlam, meaning uproar and confusion, is derived from its name. Although the hospital is now at the forefront of humane psychiatric treatment, for much of its history it was notorious for cruelty and inhumane treatment – the epitome of what the term "madhouse" connotes to the modern reader.



Quote:
Eighteenth century Bethlem was most notably portrayed in a scene from William Hogarth's A Rake's Progress (1735), the story of a rich merchant's son whose immoral living causes him to end up in a ward at Bethlem. This reflects the view of the time that madness was a result of moral weakness, leading to "moral insanity" being used as a common diagnosis.

My username is a charcter name from an Andre Norton novel, with the last letter changed. The character's name was Furrtig.

I originally took the name Branwyn as an SCA name (Society for Creative Anachronism- medieval recreation sort of thing) as a young teenager. Since then, it has become apparent to me that Branwyn is my real name, even though it is not any part of my legal name.

Shiva might as well be my first name. I don't think my husband even remembers the name on my driver's license most of the time.

I got the nickname many years ago, back when I was working for a horror attraction. One day I was in my workshop, surrounded by severed heads and body parts, when a Hindu co-worker walked in and exclaimed "Jai Shiva!" Word got around and the name stuck. (I found out that Shiva/Siva was the Hindu god of creation through destruction, which seemed to fit me well.)

Since it flows well with my last name, I went ahead and adopted it as my professional name.

Sure, you can just "Bill Me Later" on that. grin

Or maybe it's the other way around and I do the billing, because my name is phonetically the same as "bill 'em" (as in 'bill them')!

I have to wonder though if during my teenage years, I ever dated a girl who wrote "I [heart] B.M." on a restroom stall. Because that would give it a whole other meaning.

I got my username from my website...

...but where I got the name for the website is a tale of bone-chilling terror!

(Basically, while brainstorming domain names, "CoffinRust" had the nicest ring and suited my portfolio nicely.)
