    Prompted by a discussion today about mine, I thought I'd fire up a thread so people can explain why they're called what they are on here.

    My name stems not from my natural good looks, but actually from a time at school when I was sick and couldn't keep food down. People assumed I had an eating disorder -> you must be a supermodel. Cept I was also a nerd and on IRC and oz.org didn't let you have more than 9 character nicks. Hence supAmodel.

    In real life, pretty much nowadays no-one calls me it cept those from the internets, so we'll move on to people discussing why they are called what they are.

    I have an MR2, it's lucifer red. Can't really think of anything better to change it to. And I've had the car and name for around 9 years, so I've gotten used to them.

    I have blue eyes & it's my year of birth. Was going to use my other internet name - cleansadie, as everyone (family & friends anyway) know me by that but opted for a change.

    It all happened in primary school. Paris is a character out of Romeo and Juliet. Some kid when we were reading the play wondered why Shakespeare called a boy Paris. I told him it was always a boys name and threw a pen at him. World War classroom 3 slagging match started between my mates and his mates, some smartarse cottoned on that I was born in France and started everyone started calling me Paris Hilton. They used to call me that to try and get to me, but I just took it in my stride. He got named Lardy. Everyone got detention.
