Origins of some of them are easy to find. They are connected to ones first name, nationality, profession, place of living, faith, jurisdiction or the patron Saint but I cannot find the sense of the rest.

Let's undercover the secret!

So my nick is the easy one. It's my first name, I wonder how many of you figured that Tongue

What about yours?

Mine is what the priest says to me when I go up to receive communion:

"Handmaiden of God, Maureen, receives the precious body and blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen."

I always liked the sound of "Handmaiden of God," so I use it as my screen name on all of the Orthodox forums I frequent.

For the record, I'm not Chinese, nor do I see myself as an emperor - I was 13 when I came up with the alias, inspired from a video game. Haha
