Hah, funny you bring this up.  I always read your name as KB1N.  I'm used to seeing KB-1 (cyrillic KV-1) with a letter behind it so everytime I see your name it feels more natural.

КБи1

Your third letter is a long "e".  The "n" would look like a little "H".  The KV-1 was a tank, that's why I remember it.  There was a KV-1a, KV-1e, and KV-1s (which is a "c" in cyrillic).  There was no KV-1n but still, I always see it like that!

Is there some sorta of trivia contest where we could pick ten folks to represent the board and participate in.

Lol, true enough, but I figure it's a truth in advertising thing. Maybe I can go the hyphen route...   Mr. Asteriktos-[new name]... or spelling it backwards (Sotkiretsa)...   

Nah...

I don't know what you are referring to, perhaps a place (river or park or something), but I know is as loose term to define a group of so-called indigenous people in your neck of the woods I imagine.

When I read your name the first time, I thought of the language.

Nobody has shown any problem with "Fabio Leite", but my classic net nickname is "Nightrain", which most people think is "Nigh Train" in reference to the Guns 'n' Roses' song, but it was actually meant to be "Night Rain" because, well, I like it when it rains at night (and I'm at home of course... Smiley ). Also it's the family name of one my Changeling: The Dreaming characters, Duke Keldrian Nightrain of the Bonny-Sea.

I had to look up what "Nido cans" are. Here the brand is spelled "Ninho". Smiley

I decided to look through the member list and pick out other usernames I've had issues with remembering/misspelling/pronouncing (I'm only including people who have posted 200+ times, otherwise I'd end up with a five hundred names):

Nigula Qian Zishi (can only remember Nigula)

Heorhij (what's wrong with George?)

podkarpatska (For the longest time I would always think "podcast..." when I saw the name)

Bogoliubtsy (not really hard, but I usually settled for Bogo)

yBeayf (what?)

I can pronounce and spell Podkarpatska's name, no problem. But it always makes me think of pasta!

I assume this is for the same reason that Entscheidungsproblem is easy to me.

Nobody has shown any problem with "Fabio Leite", but my classic net nickname is "Nightrain", which most people think is "Nigh Train" in reference to the Guns 'n' Roses' song, but it was actually meant to be "Night Rain" because, well, I like it when it rains at night (and I'm at home of course... Smiley ). Also it's the family name of one my Changeling: The Dreaming characters, Duke Keldrian Nightrain of the Bonny-Sea.
Well, I suppose some old fans of the NFL will remember a superstar cornerback known as Dick "Night Train" Lane. His no-holds-barred tackling style is the reason why the NFL now has such strict rules against facemask and clothesline tackles.

Well I used to read "Ismliora" as "Ismloira" which in my language is something like "Ismblonde".

Well, I typed in "Cool Arabic Phrases" into Google and picked the first result.


(For those not in the know, like the lad above, it means "My name is Liora" in Arabic. It's a strange screen name, when translated, but I adopted it as my AIM SN years ago, right after attending my first Arabic class.)

I think it is a lovely name and you have yet to explain what it means. Would be a wonderful name for a daughter.

And there is a bit of a cross lingual pun in your screen name as well. I thought you might have done that on purpose.

Alas . . .

Well, Liora means "my gift of light" (very loosely translated from Hebrew).

Of course my real name is very specific and has no such meaning behind it.

And no, I am just realizing what you meant about the pun (at least I think so). Har, no, I wish I was that clever.
