    Forum Name: AlBQuirky
    Al: a shortened form of my first name (Albert/Allen/Alduin/Alphonso/Aluicious)
    B: a state of being
    Quirky: Me in a nutshell

    I came up with it on the ancient AOL message boards after going through many screen names in the late 90's.

    Avatar:
    From Baldur's Gate 2. The avatar on my machine is called "Cernd", though I have no idea who this is in the game as I have not played it for very long. I just liked his long hair and "Native American" look.

    Worst In Game Name:
    Kuhnnyng L'Yngwyst
    My level 38 Half-Elf Bard in EQ. I love Bond Films and in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Monneypenny says this to James, "You always were a cunning linguist." I love the play on words :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    I wish there was something cool about it. I literally slapped my keyboard and had gotten something like this: agdisbdjsgdauzquldbsjsb.

    This name I have used for a long time.  It was a random generation from DAoC

    I used to use Aeolian which I got from looking through the Complete Bard's Handbook for 2nd ed AD&D (it is a people and a harp)

    I used to use the name RePuBLiK back in the BBS days named after a club in Calgary

    I think the worst name I ever used was Nameless (This was stolen from the Nameless Bard from Forgotten Realms novels and I ran a guild name. . sigh. . the Harpers.  This was in the Realm

    I also used Bane. Meridian 59 . or Bane as a last name. . so Baresh Bane  (Baresh was also a random gen from WoW.)

    I have evolved into using Aethaeryn, Aethus, Aethaer. . etc. etc. or Gil. . Gilandis, Gilnor, Giladin etc.  I am an alt-aholic and this was easier on my guild

    I think the worst name was my brother using Rand.

    Used to go by Vermillion.  There a character I liked in a fighting game named Vermillion.  Didn't know it was a color.  Raventhal came along later and I just use it a s as sir name for a lot of characters. 

    My lamest name likely was Verantsucks because I couldn't get any names through EQ naming process.  Logged in and the name was changed to Verasus which is a name I still use. 

    Newest name I use is Alaris.  Character in a book.  Thought the name was pretty cool.

    The Vermillion Border in medicine is the line on the lips between the skin and the lip tissue. It is important when someone gets a laceration that crosses the vermillion border line as you need a very good plastic surgeon to suture it up so there doesn't appear to be an imperfection at that point. 

    As a health care professional, I don't trust myself to suture it well and even, so I wouldn't do it.

    My name was a mistake I decided to keep. The avatar is simple, I simply loved this anime. 

    Cannot think of a pathetic in game name I used since mine usually lack any controversy or originality I'm afraid. I was never attached to any name and am frequently known to create one on the spot for a new game.

    Heavens to Mergatroid! I remembered something my characters in City of Heroes ...no way am I sharing those names here (what would you think of me) they were beyond pathetic, embarrassing even.
