Subject: RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
Hi y'all... It's been awhile.
The name, the name...

Shortly before confirmation, I decided that I had had enough of catholisicm thankyouverymuch! The priest badgered me to go through with the ceremony and my ears perked up when he said I could change my name. (Turned out it was just a little white lie on his part, but all for the good of my soul didn't I know. Lucky me). Anyway, I picked Shylo.
Years later, I went to get a hotmail address and Shylo was taken so I tweaked the name a bit until I got something unique so that I didn't have to attach numbers to it.
I use the name quite regularly now, especially when travelling.

Kinda fits with several tribal traditions of finding your own name as you come of age.

Nice to see so many oldtimers still around!
Warmest regards,
