Hi all,

My name is Duncan Woodward .... not exactly exiting is it.
Most people do use my full first name, but have been called Dunc or Duncs regularly.

My nickname at school was Woody (due to my surname) and it kind of stuck with me for ever.

My forum name (woody.cool) was literally made up on the spot. I was at the sign up page for the RG forum, wanted my nickname, but wanted to tag something on the end. I was stuggling. I had the radio on, and Boney M - Daddy Cool came on ...... that gave me an idea ...... so woody.cool was born.

Of this I am aware, except I think everyone was expecting me to be named Jesus or something... ;)

Mines Ian Wilson.

I was signing up for the PSN and when I had to decide an ID and WildWillyWilson came to mind. Easy to remember and use it for all forums etc...

My mate said he spoke to a character on Fallout 3 called WildWillyWilson, somewhere near tenpenny tower. I couldnt find him though!

EDIT: Half my mates call me `Chez` as well due to my locks in the early 90`s resembling "the one and only!". :oops: :lol:

And on Christmas day when Jesus was born, he didn't have any disciples yet!

I think the Master has some evil plan to put all our real names into a mind machine and bring us all under his devilish control. Or something.
