    Default Name?

    Thought I'd start this thread, to help get to know everyone better.

    My first name is R.J... Yes, it stands for Ronnie James. The same as the Sabbath singer we all know and love. Only I'm not bald, or short. <span style="color: #666666">(I kid, I kid)</span>

    What's everyone else's name in real life? Only your first name though, just so no one will be like "you hax my identisorz!!!"

    My brother-in-law's name is Kim. He's a gun collector (I once fired an Uzi submachine gun he owned) and knows how to use them so I don't think anyone's ever razzed him about his name!

    There's a cult artist from Canada (in fact, the city just across the river from me, Sarnia, Ontario) named Kim Mitchell, who was in a band called Max Webster.

    Mine's Randy...not Randall or Randolph, just Randy. And, yes, I know it means "horny" in Britain and Australia.
    He is not here. He has risen!

    John, just simple. I was going to be originally named Constantinos, but my dad wanted John because Dino is short for Constantinos, and he thought I would get picked on for being called Dino, after the purple dinosaur from the Flintstone cartoons. Go figure.

    And Raven Rider, I have met or know about quite a few men named Kim, even right here in Australia. Of course, women named Kimberley, for instance, mostly get called Kim too. But men called Kim are simply that, Kim. And it isn't nearly as uncommon a name for men, as you might think it is.

    Go to the Koreas (North or South) and your eyes and ears will buzz with the number of times you encounter Kim(s) everywhere.

    I'm Ronnie. And it's not a twist on Ronald or any other name.

    Good, you and Buttock are the namesakes of Dio. That probably explains the love for metal you both share.
    Anyways, my name is Ilya (Ilia) - the passport says it one way and the credit cards have another spelling. Guess this is the same name as Elijah in English.

    But don't start calling me Frodo now.

    Just like me...it's Randy, not Randall. It says so on my birth certificate and passport. I even had to convince the recruiter of that when I joined the USAF Air National Guard. And my wife's name is Janie...not Jane, Janet, Janice, etc.

    Also, Peoria is a city in Illinois (USA). But my screen name is actually a Family Guy reference. Its the one where Peter finds out his house is (legally) its own country based on an error on the city plan.

    Guillermo (and my nick name is not very creative)
    "Gui" you have to pronounce it like "gi" in "given"
    "ller" it's like "Sher" on "Sherman"
    and "mo" is like "mo" of "moderator"

    Yea, you're right on the money Randy!! Kim Beazley is a fine, competent, worthy politician with the necessary vision and wisdom to have led Australia. Kim was dead set on course to win the election, till he sort of blew it at the 'death', to use the sports slang, and allowed a wholly undeserving, moral and intellectual pygmy like John Howard to steal the eventual win. Btw, as disappointed as I was by some of Beazley's late, inexplicable and deflating errors in the final stretch of his campaigning, I did vote for him at the time.

    And Randy, I hope you still don't, too often or too easily, let anybody, anywhere, in whatever situation wilfully and wrongly interpret your proper name as some spin-off of Randall or any other. I know I don't. I always make sure that people stand corrected when they err with my oft-abused first name, verbally, or in text.
