I sometimes look at people's names and wonder if it has any particular meaning, so, yeah. :p

Mine is from Dune. Sihaya means "the desert springtime" and it's the name the main character Paul gave to his concubine Chani, who is a fremen. One of the desert people of Arrakis.

This thread needs more attention :p

Anywho, I go by many names but one I use most is 'Nocturne', which is french for nocturnal, and it's a perfect fit because I am more of a night person than a day person.

It actually comes from a song by Secret Garden (yeah yeah, not the music people expect from me but whatever), although some people like to think I got it from League of Legends, yes I played it once but it's false (when I played it the character didn't even exist), I've used this handle since 1998 when I played Quake II online on dial up (we had internet pretty early since my dad was a techjunkie and needed to have everything).

So in order to avoid confusion, nowadays I slapped the term 'Umbra' in front of it, which is latin for shadow (one of the 3 parts / types of shadows), which is something I also happen to like because I sunburn easily.
So in a way I am 'the one who dwells in the nightly shadows' :p

lol to be honest i made mine up when i got my ps3 many years ago....i didnt know what to name my psn because i am a person who is constantly in a changing mood, and my frined had informed me that once u pick ur psn it couldnt be changed so i came up with SC Shadow Blade
SC is my initials
Shadow is pretty obvious i used shadow because i the time i was into ninjas or mysterious characters.lol
Blade is because im into swords and what not.
So yea i picked SC Shadow Blade for my name here because its my psn,xbox & steam name as well.

My username is taken from Casino Royale. The opening where James must kill two men to earn his double-0 status.

Dryden: How did he die?
Bond: Your contact? Not well.
Dryden: Well you needn't worry, the second is eas....
[Bond shoots him]
Bond: Yes, considerably.

YesConsiderably is also my xbox ID. My PSN name, No_iExpectUtoDie, is obviously taken from Goldfinger.

My name is something i swiped from a autist friend of mine. He hasn't spoken to me in a while because i logged onto his account on a few different sites (not all named Sir Cinephile) and started a few battles for a nice meme a while back. He seems to have stopped using this name because of me so I thought I'd take it for my own account, just this once lol.
