"What's in a name? That which we call a rose Would by any other name smell as sweet" -from the play 'Romeo and Juliet' by William Shakespeare And yet, think about it, would a rose really smell as sweet if it were named, say, 'Dungstinker'? Anyway, that's not actually the point of this thread: we're not gonna discuss here the actual importance of names and what not. Instead, we're gonna discuss our usernames, or rather, the stories behind them. So yeah, what's the story behind your username? What does it mean? Why did you choose it? When and how did you come up with it? And, well, you know, all that....Anyways, here, I'll begin: RiverNotch - The name is a compounding of two other names: "River", the name of a character in this video game that made me cry for two hours straight (the game's name is "To The Moon", btw), and "Notch", the name of the creator of my favorite ever video-game, Minecraft. I came up with it when I joined this certain minecraft server a couple or so years back, and I chose to use it here because ever since then it has been my "stock name", or the name which I use for pretty much any account wherein I want immediate (yet not necessarily absolute) anonymity. So if you see a RiverNotch in some other site, well that could very well be me (except in NationStates: my name there is much older than the RiverNotch thing. I do have a puppet named River-Notch there, though).
