Step 1 - set my first and surname all to lower case.
Step 2 - remove the space between my first and surname

Sorted!

Keeping it short.....

My name is Mark

my friends dad used to call me marcopolo (as in that bloke that sailed around the world back in 2 million BC or sommit)!

A manager (and good friend) at one of my previous jobs was black (and still is) used to call me (use a good black accent) Marcopoloman whenever I played Bohemian Rhapsody at full blast on the close of business!

So - I did a very sneeky thing and changed the C in marcopoloman to a K and hey presto!

Markopoloman!

I've lived in Elgin all my life, at a mates sleepover birthday party when we were 10 or 11 one of either two people called me McQueen, and it stuck as a nickname, nobody knows why!!! :shock: :shock:

Despite being white, my hair naturally grows 'out' like an afro...

At one job (early in my career!), one of the lads started calling me Jackson (as in 'Michael') - they shortened it to Jacks, and then further to Jax. It stuck - even working at large companies I end up going by the nickname instead of my name - despite the fact that my head is always shaved :|

(Oh, and the 'Original' bit is because I was pipped to registration here by the other "Jax" - damnation!)

O-Jax
WTF!? The 80's are GONE!? And they're never coming BACK!?

Shortened from Rev Ulysses Giblet, who was an on-line persona I created for a website I did. He was a parody of an American TV Evangelist (maybe it was more 'realistic' than 'parody'?). Sometimes I go for 'JimboW' (as my name is James), but these days I usually plump for the Rev.

Cool, it seems it is quite varied, and a little geeky, which is good :)
