    My first name is Wesley. Friends started calling me Snipes after the actor Wesley Snipes. Although he's much darker than me and twice my size (and not as handsome hahaha)

    Sometimes I use Xyphoid
    From Ancient Greek ξιφοειδής (xiphoeidēs).

    Adjective

    xiphoid (not comparable)
    1.Shaped like a sword, ensiform.
    2.Of, or relating to the xiphisternum.

    Because I have a tattoo which contains a sword.

    Mine is very simple as well. I first started using a portable device with the Compaq Ipaq PDA, and stuck with that line for a while, upgrading to whatever their latest was. When Compaq became HP, I jumped ship to the Dell Axim line. Since this was my first non-ipaq device, I started using the the contraction "nonpaq". It has stuck since, even after I jumped form PDAs to smartphones.

    Thanks for the replies! It's interesting to see how we come up with user names.
    Keep them coming!
    I'm sure many members wonder "Wow how did he/she come up with that name?"

    My nick originates from a Dutch comicbook character. Also it's somewhat of an abbreviaton of my real name. Been using it since I was in the airforce.

    Am a jazz fan...particularly 50's and 60's stuff. Coltrane, Miles, Monk (that's him in my avatar), Billie Holiday, Bill Evans, Richie Beirach, Keith Jarrett, Joe Pass, Bird, Art Pepper, Charlie Haden, Kenny Burrell, Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins, etc etc etc etc etc. Bop and Bebop are post WW II names for a certain style of jazz....examples are Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker.
