Eldar, I've no idea what it means and it's not exactly an usual name in Norway..

Zodiac.. Used it since I joined the first ET pub back in 04. Had this old phone which had Zodiac written on it, so that's the origin I guess. :p

It's a Swedish name and means something like 'father of peace'. The meaning couldn't match less, but okay.
u r not peaceful?
Mmh, no idea. But it sounds fucking gay.
Kamil - the perfect
fanatic, from 2007 dunno B)
saskia - as a girl's name is of Danish and Old German origin, and the meaning of Saskia is "the Saxon people". From "sachs". Also possibly "valley of light". Name of the wife of the 17th century Dutch painter Rembrandt. Use of her name in the Netherlands can be traced to her; however, the derivation of Saskia from the name of the Saxon people is uncertain. The name could also possibly be of Slavic origin, and related to Sasha, a short form of Alexandra.
I better should not have read that. The meaning & history really fucks up the, apart from that, nice name.

wsk short for wohlstandskind
wohlstandskinder used to be a german pop-punk-ska band I used to like and I thought it would be funny to use that as email adress. first thing to pop up in my mind when I started to play ET so I used it and shortened it to wsk later on. there is no real translation for it to english cause I think there is no similar word/term.
Quotewohlstandskinder used to be a german pop-punk-ska band

I always 'hoped' you picked it because of the band, among to other things. One of the best nicknames on crossfire.

they were great band, had the pleasure to see them live once. great lyrics and even though the name looks like a joke there is actually some meaning behind it and can stand for a few things and if you try to translate it eg. english language, it takes 5 minutes to explain. thats one of the reasons why I like it x)
Name: Kazuya - The meaning of the name Kazuya is 'Peaceful one'.

Pseudonym: MAJE57Y - Self explanatory.
Alexander, means "defending men" or something.

VanillA, started using it a few years ago.
Name Michael:

From the Hebrew name (Mikha'el) meaning "who is like God?". This is a rhetorical question, implying no person is like God. Saint Michael is one of the seven archangels in Hebrew tradition and the only one identified as an archangel in the Bible. In the Book of Revelation in the New Testament he is portrayed as the leader of heaven's armies, and thus is considered the patron saint of soldiers.
The popularity of the saint led to the name being used by nine Byzantine emperors, including Michael VIII Palaeologus who restored the empire in the 13th century. It has been common in Western Europe since the Middle Ages, and in England since the 12th century. It has been borne (in various spellings) by rulers of Russia , Romania (Mihai), Poland and Portugal (Miguel). Other more modern bearers of this name include the British chemist/physicist Michael Faraday (1791-1867) and basketball player Michael Jordan (1963-).

Nickname: my original nick was Tommy, but in community were too many players with this nick, so i decided to make newone, when i was joining vent it wasnt sayin tommy or so but smth like tamj, so i thought to make nick of it, and it was time when t4Mj was born.
Some of you will be disappointed but Francis isn't my real name (orly?). I'm François also known as François le français king of France and old novelist.

Real Name: I'll never tell

I have no idea. :(
Name: Edi, for of Eduard/Edward.

Means "rich guard", derived from the Old English elements ead "rich, blessed" and weard "guard". Saint Edward the Confessor was the king of England shortly before the Norman conquest. He was known as a just ruler, and because of his popularity this name remained in use after the conquest when most other Old English names were replaced by Norman ones. The 13th-century king Henry III named his son and successor after the saint, and seven subsequent kings of England were also named Edward. This is one of the few Old English names to be used throughout Europe (in various spellings).

Nickname - Stary from "Star" using Stary since there are other people with name "Star"
hehe I'm Eduard and my childhood nickname was Edi :P
Eduard with edi as one of my irl nicknames reporting in!
Antti, very common finnish name and it origins are in Greek (Andreas).
After some googleing i found this: "The manliness this name refers to is about the duties of a male in the patriarchal society of ancient Greece. The first duty of a man was to protect his home, and this name is sometimes translated as "warrior"."

At first i used the name Slender, then added 'i' but everyone kept calling me slendu so i settled with that. The name comes from an old 8-bit classic "Pro Wrestling" where there is this wrestler "King Slender".
Tore - comes from Thor, Norwegian god of thunder, lightning and that kind of stuff. Bow down!

urtier - Means really old or even first animal. Got called urtier by a friend when I was a kid. Guess because I was fat and looked like a dinosaur or some other animal from that time :-)

The name Robert is a Germanic given name, from hrod "fame" and beraht "bright".
Jasper. It is of Greek origin. Variant of Caspar or Gaspar. Also possibly (Persian) "treasure holder". Jasper is also a semiprecious gemstone, harder than glass, and red or reddish brown. Jasper has 4 variant forms: Gaspar, Gasper, Jaspar and Jesper.

Nick: my first nickname was MeleeBro which I used on the SSBM GameFAQs forums back in 2002. Name speaks for itself, I'm a bro and I played Melee, so MeleeBro. After using that name on public servers in ET for a little while I decided that MeleeBro just didn't quite cut it for ET, so while getting repeatedly mown down by someone on a crew-served MG (perforated by) I decided I'd rename to perforator, added some c00l numbers to my name and p3rf0r4t0r was born :D Everyone called me perfo though because perforator is too long, so I just renamed myself to perfo in 2004 but I registered on here as perforator (I don't know why).

I remember Netherlands BuLL sent me a pm once saying my name was not cool enough the way it was (simply perfo) so he suggested I renamed myself to p3RfO, so I used that for a little while in 2008 :D
My name irl and online is Shuki and it means dog, the Mandarin translation equates to scrub of all games.
