    Names

    With most of us (notable exceptions: marc77178, Neil, myself, luckyeddie, Craig - to name a few) it is the case that our screennames bear no clue as to our names. Yet most of us long-standing members know and call each other by our names.
    Some, however, seem incredibly reluctant to reveal our names.
    Especially I am thinking of:
    Sehwag309
    Slow Love™
    Son Of Coco
    Swervy
    tooextracool
    Deja moo
    Eclipse
    SJS
    For those of you who visit OT: why? Are you really jealous guardians of the priceless secrets of your own names? Or has it just been the case that no instance where you reveal your name has cropped-up?
    I'd be interested to know your names, any of you who are prepared to tell us.

    My username bears no resemblence to anything about me (I'm a fast bowler by the way), but I just liked masterblaster.

    I think most people know my real name around here anyways since I am a CW Staff Member.

    But yeah, some people do never really tell us their real name, but you know that's their business I guess.

    Deja Moo's real name is Karthik, this all I know. SJS, tooextracool and Slow Love I'm not too sure of.

    Sehwag309's name is Rajeev. That's all I know from your list above.

    Brumby is my honest-to-goodness surname. I use it as my user name cos I think it's pretty cool (if I do say so myself), it being the name of the Aussie wild horse & a super-12 team too!

    The "Boy" comes from the fenland habit of refering to everyone as "The Boy Smith" or "The Boy Brumby". Boy is correctly pronounced as "buh", BTW!

    My real first name is Dale, which I dislike intensely. My folks were suckered in during the ten seconds in the mid-70s when it was popular!!

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Yeah, Sangrah, I've known your name just about since I came on here.
    Thanks for enlightening me on Rajeev and Karthik, though.

    Well, theres Rich2001, Rich, Richard.. I guess we are running out of possibilities.

    We both have really similar second names as well

    He's John 'Eddie' Sanders. Eddie is a nickname I would think.
