    "Lamzumi" - It's a mixture of nicknames, when I grew up my Dad gave me a nickname after my real name. I'll not say the full nickname because I don't want to share my IRL name, but 'Lam' is part of it.
    Then 'zumi' is from a username both my elder brothers and my nephew used on their PS3/ Xbox 360. All of them would end with 'zumi'. eg, Domzumi, Razumi, etc. (These names have long been inactive, so don't try to add them). I mixed both names and thus made 'Lamzumi'. I'm bad with names, so this name stuck with me since.

    My number 1 requisite was it being unique enough that I wouldn't have to fall back to secondary nicks when signing up at any website or server, ever. 20 years later, so far so good on that front :) It's also loosely based on a character name I used some of the few times I role played when I was a kid.
    I also didn't want it to be associated with my real life name or any other personal details, so no date of birth or anything like that. But I underestimated what the Internet would become (some sites forcing you to use real names, etc) so I inevitably lost that battle. Oh well, with or without nicknames, we're still the same database entry in corporations computers.

    Fun Fact: I don't own a Silver Ram 1500.

    Extra Fun Fact: I used to be called 'Silveringot' but then my password became corrupted (and for some reason I wasn't able to recover it) and after a while of looking at a used car site I found it. I found my new name.

    Here we are today.

    My username is an embarrassing misspelling of Arbroath, as in the Declaration of Arbroath, the Scottish declaration of independence
    penned in 1320. I have no idea wtf an 'Aboroath' is:p. Not particularly worried about it though, it's certainly unique.

    When I was pretty young, I made the user name based on my interest in snakes, and cars. Pretty simple, speed, and snake (dat Oxford comma tho...). It was initally speedosnake. Took me a while to see the problem with that first name lol. For whatever reason, it has always stuck with me.

    I'm bad at creating nicknames, so I just looked at my keyboard. At first I wanted it to be Qwerty, but that would be too unoriginal, so I spelled it backwards and ended up with my current name.

    Squatch comes from Sasquatch. Being six foot eight inches tall, you end up getting nicknames. Sasquatch is it, but I don't like the word Sasquatch, so I shortened it to Squatch and the number is just my id from when I was locked up.
