    Bored - have to stay a wee bit late at work to catch up on things.

    Was just thinking, who has the coolest name on the site?

    And what name would you like to see.

    I'm undecided about the first one. But I love to see someone
    join and call themselves No2marauder that would be a laugh.

    I think any name that combines a person's favorite color, favorite underrated chess piece and the age that the person may or may not have been when he opened his account is definitely a cool name.

    my name is robbie, after my real name and carrobie, which is the urdu/hindi word for cherub or angel, cause my wife, who is originally from the Punjab thinks that i am angelic - no joke!

    Can't say I understand the No2marauder...perhaps a previous member reference?

    I'm not really impressed with any members names. Nor can I think of anthing particularly clever? S Pawn? I'm a sucker for a good or bad pun. Chubby Checker?

    I can tell you I'm not particularly impressed with names like, Iwin our ubluzin.... Save the bravado for the board.

    Not bad. Actually, that reminded me, I do think I have a favorite on this site, PAWN RIOT. Not a fan of the all caps, but great name.

    Hmm, maybe greenpawn could spin us some puns on Sac.

    Sac Re Ligious
    Cull de Sac
    Lets Get in The Sac ...too long, but great theme.

    The reason I started this is becasue a few days ago I saw
    a real snazzy name and I've gone and forgotten it.
    It was some bod who was graded 1000 or something like that.

    A thread appeared showing a whole scad of low graded players
    and this 'name' was a few pages from there.
    I've looked but cannot see it.

    Never Mind. - Here is a true story that is related to names.

    Edinburgh 1979 and the Castle club are having their annual Christmas Allegro.

    Now you know they have masked wrestlers who only get unmasked when they get defeated?

    Enter me with SAS style balaclava back to front (eye holes cut out)
    and wearing a German WWII helmet painted black with the words
    THE MAD KNIGHT painted on the front in white paint.

    This is true - one of the blokes playing in the old codgers tournament
    currently taking place in Liverpool will confirm. (AFW on 3/4).

    Anyway.

    I win my first game so I'm not unmasked.
    I win my second game and am stillnot unmasked.

    I do not know what happened in 3rd game because the central heating,
    the SAS balaclava, the weight of the German helmet etc - I passed out.

    They unmasked me to revive me.

    Perhaps I should have come on here as the Mad Knight.
    (I've not looked - I bet there is one - I wonder if he is wearing
    a balaclava and German WWII helmet).

    Don't know why you guys are debating this as its obvious that Dragon Fire is the best name on the site because -

    Dragon is a really terrifying animal;
    Dragon is also a chess variation;
    Fire is red which is a great colour;
    Fire is also really cool;
    Fire indicates total destruction of opposition;
    Dragons breathe fire which installs total fear into ones opponents.

    so Dragon Fire is the best name on the site.
