were you drunk when you posted your last 2 posts? Thats like.... gibberish.
You should adopt my rule of: no internet when drunk.

Anyway my name actually comes from an 80s cartoon villain. Anyone remembers Extreme Dinosaurs? So the big bad in this show was called Zordak something. At least i understood that. And i got used to it.
I began using it in Everquest i think and since then it was kind of tied to a Necromancer ish character, wich i then continued in Morrowind.

my screen name came from the name of a character in the book "book of the fallen: the malazan series". its a 10 book series written by steven eriksson(nom de plume). Shadowthrone is a God/"Ascendant", he was formerly known as Emperor Kellanved before his supposedly mysterious and untimely "disappearance/death"(that in which didn't happen, rather, he ascended into a God, a young one at that).

i began using it a few years back.

My username is an ancient Egyptian name which I at first had for my Tempest of Set in AoC and have been using it since in many games. I will likely use it for my main character in TESO. The good point with it is that I've never ever run into a case in an online game that somebody else would have taken it and thus I feel it to be a unique name that I can think of as something special belonging only to me. ;)

Hentmereb sound as female name, and i think it is also a Egyptian royal family, but no history as well.

Yes, it is a female name from the New Kingdom period.

A bit problematic to connect well to any of the playable species in TESO and although I'm not a great roleplayer, I usually try to do a bit to make my character's name fit the species' known in-universe names, to which Earth language or a fictional one they draw their inspiration.

Nod, it is easy to make names if you are not roleplayer, and find as real name from real and old histories..

I studied Egyptology at university. I now officially love you.

And my username, well... A triskele is a celtic symbol, it's found on the ruins of Newgrange for example. I'm into celtic culture (I'm into a lot of things), and it has a nice ring to it for an internet-alias :) Since I wanted a celtic or old-Norse name for my Nord, I'm pretty much set.

I like Ancient Egypt's history as well.

Many campaigns, until The Great Alexander took Egypt from Persia. Later Rome. Also i like Cats as god in Egypt ;)

Wish I had a cool reason or meaning behind mine.
Goes back many years.
Needed a username for some random sight.
Hit random keys on the keyboard.
That's what I got and the name has stuck ever since.

The name Casdegere, pronounced, (Caz-Deh-Geer) is a form of my favorite immortal from Highlander named Kastagir. It's not peticularly Nordish though. If anything it might work as a Breton if I choose to make one.
