    This is an old thread, but I figured I'd chime in as it's better late than never. I'd been a SW fan for decades, going back to the 80s; but Ahsoka really became an instant favorite as I watched TCW religiously throughout its original run. I couldn't think of anything substantial to use as her name, so instead I just took her last name as something possessive. Looks strange to the layman; but from now on I'm the one and only A's T in the forum!

    I signed up here soon after I was promoted to staff sergeant. I wanted something that was short and easy to type, and said something about me. Figured I'd use it once or twice and move on. [face_laugh]

    Pretty sure I have told this story here. I watched a show about African children dying of starvation and saw a pretty little girl name Adalia, she died of starvation and I was heart broken. The name stuck with me for years afterwards. Then I fell desperately hopelessly and endlessly in love with Kyp Durron......Rest is history :p

    I'm a fan of the expression "the devil is in the details," and that probably shows in my user name. Also I root for the New Jersey Devils in the NHL as you might be able to tell. [face_devil]

    I connected the "peacekeepers" from the Hunger Games and the fact that I'm a pretty chill person, so I thought "hey, I keep the peace," and also
    added the first three letters of my name to make it unique.

    Pretty obvious, but my favorite Ewok, plus George's number. I guess the fun piece for me is that it was the first username I created (even before signing up here) so its been my primary ID since 1997.

    Mine is pretty boring. It's a name I've used for many years on other sites. My initials are J. A. S. and I'm a MAN. So, there you have it.

    For those not keeping score, @jasman has been around longer than @Sarge. Not too many people can say that around these boards.

    1998. That was back when most of the population of the world were signing onto the internet through dial-up modems; generally with AOL, right?

    I meant to type Ghostofjakku, but I guess I forgot the g. Haven't figured out how to to change it, so I just stuck with host. I liked jakku. Lots of mystery there. Last fight against the empire. Should be plenty of ghost. So ... Ghostofjakku.

    I was looking for the name of a background character, something a bit esoteric. Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina was one of the first EU novels that I read and I enjoyed the character of Dannik Jerriko. I also think he looks pretty cool on screen, casually puffing his hookah pipe as Obi Wan performs an impromptu amputation.

    The word “afterlight” can be defined either as light visible in the sky after sunset or as a view of past events. I feel like I’ve spent a lot of my life looking backwards, for good or for ill.

    I’m also fond of Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds novels. The third book in the series is titled “In The Afterlight.” I’d like to see her write more for Star Wars; she’s always been a vocal fan.

    I was a massive FFX fan in November 2004.

    Sin was the given name of the recurring villain of the arc, and he manipulated everyone into creating a religion around his reincarnation for ten millennia.

    Sin Rebirth became Sinrebirth.

    Hmmmm, how did I come up with my name? Simples, it truly is plain and ordinarily simple. Obi-Wan Kenobi is my favourite character, so I just went with something simple. So, IHeartKenobi89, it is.

    I'm not sure if I've already posted this years ago, but around the time I first registered here, I saw an Anakin fanvid to the song Beautiful Disaster which I felt described him very well. Since Anakin is my second favorite character and I was defending him a lot in those days, the name was perfect.

    Around the time TLJ came out, I was chatting with a friend from the Harry Potter RPG I'm involved in. Somehow the conversation turned to Star Wars. She jokingly nicknamed me Madam Solo, and it stuck. I took it as my username because Han and Ben/Kylo are two of my favorite Star Wars characters, and I couldn't think of anything I liked better. :han::kylo:
