Chilari's latest challenge thread makes mention of her name and how she came up with it. I thought that was interesting. If you use a handle, how did you come up with it? Does it have a special meaning to you? Where do you use it?
I was 13 years old and new to fantasy. I just finished reading The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan (holy crap, its been 19 years!) and I knew that I wanted to be a writer. Well, it was the summer and my family planned a "trip" to go back to my ancestral homeland. While on the plan I had tons of time to think about my world and, of course, my hero. I needed a name. I would go through hundreds of them but discarded almost all of them. We were going to land in the airport in Ankara, Turkey to switch planes. As the captain spoke the city's name, my mind wandered, mulling over trivial things. One of those things was "What do the people of Ankara call themselves? Ankaran? Ankari? WAIT! That's the name!"
And Ankari was born. I've used it since then for table top RPGS, MMOs, email accounts, everything. My MMO live included EQOA, EQ2, AoC, LoTRO and DDO.
