    The first part of my name is "mrs" for (hopefully) obvious reasons, and "marv" for the first part of my last name. Friends have called my husband "marv" for years, so I figured it would be appropriate.

    Mine is for my love of the Blue Ridge mountains of the Eastern seaboard. Spent some time in the midwest for a bit round the college years but my wife and I decided we just had to get back to the hills. Now every season is just as beautiful as the next and the snow is white (instead of gray :p).

    First name and the first 3 letters of my last name. Real original I know, but I've used it since AOL days and it's easy to remember.

    Wow, this thread started in 2006! I read this site for a month before lighting my insert for the first time. With all the talk of top-down vs. bottom-up, this wood, that wood, etc., I was convinced that buidling a fire was somehow magic, even though I've been building them since Boy Scouts. I was so happy at the first spark I felt like Tom Hanks in "Cast Away" when he stood on the beach yelling, "I made fire!" Short answer - I made fire.

    I thought I would use something that described my area and lifestyle. Since we are snowed in most years and get 30' or more it felt appropriate.

    I always thought it was in reference to Ray Bradbury.

    Seriously.

    Sandor is my first name too and I emigrated in 1957. When I enrolled in school, the principle didn't want to use my first name, so the nicname they called me starts with L and the first 7 chars of my last name are Ligetfa.

    I do question your pronunciation though. In Budapest they pronounce it Shahndoor.

    First dog when I was single was a Norwegian Elkhound ("moosedog") and we used to go hiking every weekend in the mountains... Just stuck.

    It is in reference to Frank Herbert, but I do live on Cape Cod. I did have a freind who had Bradbury for a professor in college though, Plus, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. used to live in the next town over.

    First BB I joined was a fly fishing forum. I live nearby the Battenkill River, which used to be one of the great trout rivers in the East. It's what I call my "home water". Tough river, a major league challange for small wild browns that need everything just right to fool them. They say if you can catch 'em on the 'Kill, you can catch 'em anywhere. Well, you can't catch 'em at all on that river anymore, because there's hardly any left and no one knows why.

    Like many replies here, I just stuck with it on most subsequent boards for simplicity's sake, but it has led to some interesting comments from non-fishing forum members. I also build canoes, and the boat builders use long, flexible sticks called "battens" to make fair curves when they draw out boats full-size. They think I "kill" battens by over-bending them. A good batten bends evenly, and it is a cherished thing that you take good care of.

    Other boards glom onto the "killer" part and think I'm violent by nature. I won't let you know if that's true or not, just in case we meet someday and you entertain the idea of messin' with me. Word on the street is... Don't.


    My home BB was a Canadian canoeing forum. I was a "top ten" contributor there, and everybody just called me "BK" on that site. After I publicly dared to express my dissatisfaction on that forum with a commercial builder's pricing, I was "outed" by them with my real full name as retaliation. I prefer anonymity on the Internet, and I'm still pissed at the whole deal and haven't been back since. This may be my new home.

    I've thought of changing my screen name since I always thought it led to a lack of respect of the Internet, but my wife finally made me realize it's not the name, it's my personality. She may be onto something.

    Anyway, real name is Dan _____. You can call me Battenkiller, or you can call me Batten, or you can call me Killer or you can call me BK or you can call me Dan...

    ... just make sure you call me when the hatch is on and the fish are rising.
