Barget, is my last name and it coincides with my in-game name. The last name has traces of French/German heritage so I found it fitting since I enjoy playing as the Germans.

I stole it from a Terry Pratchett book, because I needed an exotic sounding name and lack an imagination.

My name is from a book by Anne Rice. It was originally Lelio Rising. Meaning the desire to be more than ordinary. Everyone just referred to me as Rising so i dropped the first part.

My nick (Lem) comes from my name. Two letters from my last name and one from the first name. Lemur is basically the same, except that I changed the letter a to u for it to mean something nice.

I have used both Lemur and Lem for quite a few years already but seems that those are a bit too common these days. I might have to come up with something new in the future.

I use Boz, it is simple and short, which I thought an internet name needed to be. It comes from an 80's tv show called Rip Tide. It was a cheesy Magnum PI/Simon and Simon rip off. 2 dicks flying around in an old Sikorsky S-58T helo solving peoples problems, only they needed the help of this computer geek "the Boz and his robot friend....."RoBoz" thus I stole it for myself back in the mid 90's and have been that ever since. Seemed geeky enough for what I was about to embark on back in the early on-line gaming days. It just stuck.

My nickname is sscommunist1944. I like the Waffen-SS in terms of its combat actions; politically i am a communist. The end of the name was to commemorate the year D-day happened. First two parts of the name seem contradictory but that's what it is. Lately though, I've been using Waffen-SSoldier1944 in other games.
