Well for me, "ber" comes from my name Amber; a lot of my friends call me that for short. The "seph" was added to make it more formal, so says a friend of mine. I actually didn't come up with it, a friend of mine did for my first email account a long time ago.

I just used my first name and my initials OS. How boring! Now I read about all your imaginative choices, I feel that I should have tried harder. Something with literary connotations maybe, Polonius Rosencrantz from Shakespeare; Baru or Wolftone from Irish ancestry. Milanda or Ananda from Buddhist myth, Narai or Tewada from Thai mythology, but no, I am stuck with my unoriginal choice. sigh!

I just used my initials for a change. I've used handles and aliases on other web forums in the past but Trek Earth seemed more personal and more 'proper' so I figured I'd just use initials. I was starting something new with a new hobby as well so decided to make a completely fresh start.

In hindsight I wish I'd typed my name in lower case when I signed up: "MKING" rather than "mking" seems rather pretentious...

My user name "erdna" is just the reverse of my acutal first name "andre".

Well, Rosie,

I'll give you three guesses where my name came from - Swissguy - it's also in my email address, which I won't disclose right now, or I would have to change it for security purposes, in this world of phishing and identity theft...

Switzerland is the country of my birth, though England is the country of my education and formation.

Being half British and half Swiss I had to decide between Englishguy and Swissguy, so I went for the name related to place where I have spent most of my life - Switzerland. By the way, some of the most awesome pictures in TrekEarth are from Switzerland.

Cool, huh?

Sorry if that's TMI (too much info) but you did ask...

Cheers,
Scott
