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.
