mines pretty easy, Sid Vicious was the guitarist for the old punk band, the Sex Pistols (also of Sid & Nancy fame). I guess I'm a pretty big punk music fan, especially the old stuff like the Pistols, the Clash, the MC5.....

Since there have been a TON of newbies over the past couple months, I thought I drag this tired old thread out again.

The movie "Volunteers" has a few classic moments. Throughout, John Candy plays an innocent oaf, who perpetually introduces himself fully as "Tom Tuttle from Tacoma, Washington". My real last name is not Tuttle, and I'm nowhere near as big as Candy, but the rest works. I like the part where he teaches the native Thai people to sing the Washington State fight song.

Interesting!

Ive had the name ZeN for years now - got in while being accused of cheating in Quake (I wasnt cheating, I'm just really good at games ) - one thing led to another and it stuck. ZeNergy I use when ZeN is taken... (cause its cool)

My name is how my last name is ALWAYS mispronounced. My last name is Tuepker, which is pronounced Tip-ker (yeah, go figure). I have been called "twopecker" my whole life. Before me, my father was. My mom said that when her and my father were dating, my grandmother used to call my dad "little jimmy twopecker".

Just a nickname I cant do anything about, so I might as well accept it!

Where did the last name Tuepker originate?

Hey, yours is more interesting than mine. Mine's just first initial, last name, just like I picked up in college when I first signed up for an email addy.
