Mine's kinda corny . . . when I joined the forum my wife was a lot more into DT than she is now, so we were the "Dream" team. With DT becoming more uber-metal with each release, her fandom has slacked off unfortunately.

Mine's pretty dumb, I was walking by the living room in my house and they had this Disney movie playing, Anastasia, where one of the characters is name Demetrio in the Spanish translation, so I changed it to Dimitrius and I've been using it ever since.

It's okay.  You've made up for your lame username origins by having an awesome avatar.  :tup

Yes.  Haven't you ever seen the cartoon?   If that's not a hard-core philosopher in action, I don't know what is.

It's my name (First two letters are my first and middle name, then comes my surname), though I'm planning to send a request so my name is changed to LuisC.

I don't.

Anyway, quoted from the duplicate thread.

Last year, me and a friend were reading the back of our English textbook and the play "Waiting For Godot" was mentioned. We never heard of it so we looked it up, and laughed our asses off at the plot and concept. Soon, several stupid inside jokes developed between the two of us related to Waiting For Godot. My username is a reference to that, intentionally misspelled because I like the way it looks that way.
Gadough isn't Hitler. He's much, much worse.

My surname begins with G, and I asked a friend from my old school to attract a teacher's attention for me while I got a book out, and he said, 'Miss, Tom marvellous G wants you!' Which I thought was the best name ever, which was understandable as I was about ten. What's less understandable is that it still makes me giggle. (and has the added bonus of making people misspell it when it's RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM 73109  >:( )
