    The title is self explanatory: in my case, the name PanzoN88 (pahn sown 88)(can't really write it in a way that I can help others pronounce it) comes from 2 things:

    1. The word panzon is a spanish slang term for a big boned male (rather not say fat, but I am overweight, however I am working on loosing weight). That is why I chose this part of the name.

    2. The 88 comes from the fact that I am a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys and that was the number of many Cowboys greats. Also a huge packers fan but that number is not because I am a Ty Montgomery fan (I do not like him as a running back, but that's a topic for another thread.

    And that is what my name stands for.

    I enjoy Metal. A lot. Dimebag was shot in 2004. Prior to that I was a very sheltered kid. That event got me researching metal music and I’ve never looked back.

    Well... mine is also pretty simple. I love spiders and my nickname growing up was Clown. I also collect scary clown stuff and cheesy clown movies. I'm also covered with over 20 clown tattoos as well. I'm two major phobias in one!!! And no, I don't dress up as a clown...:rolleyes::D

    I was going to use my gaming name(Ive been a gamer since the first atari came out) but it's gotten kind of old (420xXWarPigXx420). I chose mine because at the time I was heavily into researching mass disappearances. Its..an interesting topic.

    Mine comes from my gamer name that I developed over time in high school. I liked yu-gi-oh back then and my favorite card was Jinzo. I couldn’t use Jinzo so I put an x instead of a j because it was “edgy”. So I had Xinzo. But I also read Beowulf in high school and enjoyed it but another name everyone had. So with the two I merged it into one and Xinowulf was born. :D A little cheesy but I’ve used it forever.
