    Interesting Ivan! I assumed it was some sort of South American freedom fighter.

    Mine was a combination of naffness, cycling terminology and irony based on my usual performance on a bike. I couldn't choose between Tete and Arriere and eventually went for Tete cos it sounded sillier.

    I'm a big Elgar fan, and he named his 1903 Royal Sunbeam bike 'Mr Phoebus'. Elgar was a very keen cyclist. ;)

    I always though Derriere de la course would be a better name - for being last I mean not for you obviously.;)

    Mine is nothing to do with my fast hands it's simply that my surname is McGraw.

    I work with MRI scanners (thus the picture of my brain in my avatar!) and the first scanner I worked with was a Siemens Magnetom. I used the scanners name one day as a log in (for some web thingy a long time ago), intentionally misspelled and it seemed to stick.

    Mine is my name - Jacomus, and my roadbike's name - Gen
     
  9. When I started on C+ I was 51, have a liking for '51' the aperitif (working through latest consignment from Pertus..;)) - seemed like a natural choice really.

    Another year, another place - the 51 did not seem to be so appropriate...:sad:

    But I am not a dog - he's called Jack. And I know Jack s*** :biggrin:

    Hee Haw's not bad I suppose. A lot better than wan baw (that's one ball for you Southern types fortunately if you're not from Glasgow that doesn't rhyme with McGraw.)

    Can't remember how I formulated mine, but I know it took a lot of clever thinking.

    Mine is my name. But spelt differently, obviously, because I couldn't get a yahoo login with any other spelling.

    For a long time I thought no-one could possibly have a name like mine and then the other day, browsing wiki, I found this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melvil_Dewey

    I was very surprised!

    I'm sorry I haven't a clue. Couldn't be you are a petite, undernourished girl who is easily overlooked?

    Mine was my nickname among fellow undergrads, a shortening of my Surname. There were a bunch of us who tended to refer to each other by surname - I think in the early days one of the more sardonic lecturers called out the register in that way, and for some of us, it stuck...
