Mine comes from the fact that I earned my undergraduate degree from UT Austin in 1986.

I was heavily into roller blading in my younger years...about 20 years ago and thought I was pretty good. My first skates were K2's. Later and more recently I got into snowboarding, though I haven't been able to do it since moving to Texas but my preferred gear at the time was also K2.

When I used to work the night shift we were a small group and everyone had a DC superhero/villain nickname. Every night I'd drag myself in and be half asleep the whole time and people said I was like a zombie, so my name became Grundy. Image

I am a big fan of the BBC 454 . I put a stroker 454 in my 86 Camaro and was hooked. :thewave

We travel to Ireland yearly. My username is "A Soldier's Song" in Gaelic, which is the national anthem.

It’s just a combination of my name and initials.
It was a program suggested user ID for AOL, way back in like ‘94.
And it just stuck for all these years somehow.

There are some very interesting names on this board. All of them with a story behind them I'm sure. I thought it would be interesting to see where all of these user names came from. I have recieved several inquiries about my user name. It is pronounced with a southern drawl as one word Big Ol Big Un. As in a big dude. I was called that by a rancher one time, and it cracked my friends up and it just kind of stuck with me. I look forward to reading the orgin or meaning behind all of your user names.
Easy, it's nickname I picked up as a kid. I was the wild child out of three generations. Never a bad kid but a short tempered guy that never tolerated bullies and was prone to laying people out particularly on the football field.

I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
