Topic: So, what does your NR handle name mean anyway?
This is one of those things I've wondered about for a long time but never got around to asking, or thought maybe somebody else would start the thread. Sometimes there are cryptic handles that are hard to prounounce, or something that seems like a nonsensical jumble of words and numbers, but which you know must mean something important to the poster. So for fun, that's the question...What does you NR handle name mean? And what was the inspiration behind it?
I'll start with mine...lyra, believe it or not, isn't in homage to aliens in lyra. But it does have to do with the constellation. I picked the name out of an Astronomy magazine years ago, thought it was pretty and *lyr*ical. So when it came time to choose a name for NR, I chose that. I had no idea at the time about channeled material from space aliens in lyra, so in retrospect, with what I know now, I would not use that name. ! Gives people the wrong impression, and it's also been confused with the Operation Terra "Lyara" woman. If I could go back and choose a new name I'd simply use my real name - Carissa. oh well. Hindsight and all that good stuff.
So, what about everybody else? What does your name mean, and where did it come from?
