My name derives from the illustrator Adrian Tomine. It is pronounced "Toh-mee-nay", though I won't go as far as to guess the name's place of origin - I am unsure as to whether it is Korean, Japanese or of any other asian nation.

It was brought to my attention that Morten Harkett, the lead singer of the 80's band a-ha ("Take On Me"), has a daughter, famous overseas for her singing/songwriting, who likes to be referred to by her middle name - Tomine. It is Danish, and is pronounced "Toh-meen", which turns out to be my preferred pronunciation.

In my old raiding guild, I was commonly called Tommy.

Nice formula for you. It works well with your names. Unfortunately for me the same formula = Garsar or Sargar. Both of which are... Blah, to say the least.

I drove 18wheelers for 4 yrs or so.

"break one nine, can I get a radio check?"

"Sorry, don't take checks, cash only"

"aw hell driver, just tell me if the dang thing's workin"

"Its not. no one is hearing a word you say"

"Well damn. ok"

Typical smartassed back-n-forth huckstering on the CB radio, that many drivers would partake in.. myself included.

My name comes from my attempt to make an authentic sounding night elf name for my wow character in vanilla wow.

I thought, well sylvan means something green and natural, and i noticed that the town names had "aar" at the end of them.

Since sylvan was taken, i went with Sylvanaar.

Ironically, my attempt at an authentic sounding name met The Burning Crusade, and now it looks like I named myself after a town.

I've had Kodewulf since around 2000. Decided in the wee hours of the morning one day that I need a new nick and a domain that goes with that. And seeing as I was trying to change my career path from IT support to development I wanted something that showed the "coding" part. Hence the "Kode" part, and at that time I was using this wallpaper: http://browse.deviantart.com/?q=wyte...set=48#/d1cwxy

And "Kodewulf" was born.
