I honestly thought that I was never going to use this account again after asking my cartoon-related question, so I quickly put together something that I thought sounded cool and that's how "IceDragon" was born Razz

But I grew so attached to this account and name that I kept using it, going as far as to name my own site after it.

How about you?

Back when I worked for AOL's call center (late 90s), they made it where you could made names longer that eight characters. One name I made was LepricahnsGold@aol.com (now defunct). I spelled it that way because I didn't know how to properly spell leprechaun. I kept using it as it has been available everywhere I go.

I don't really have a cool story behind my name. It is just one of the many nicknames given to me by my wife.

lol- no real cool story here either. MacGyver is my all time favorite TV show. When I was a young kid, I had three favorite shows- Sesame Street, ThunderCats and MacGyver. Very Happy Cool

Someone once asked, "If your characters had usernames, what would they be?" One of them, I decided, would go by "Captain S".

I ended up getting attached to that name, and now it's here. Plus, captains are cool Very Happy
