My screen name now has no rhyme or reason to it actually, well, nothing of "deep thought" went into it or anything. Except for the fact I wanted to ditch an older screen name I had for several years (which I tired of) but I wanted keep the "fire" part of it, so I chose this one. My prior screen name was "Fireinfolding" which I chose out of Ezek 1:4
Ezek 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a ((fire infolding)) itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
I loved the way that is worded, so I pulled those two words from that verse and stuck em' together, and so even my first screen name and even that didn't have any more thought then that.
So on a few boards I have the same name and others a different ones, but I will often play off of "the fire" part in some way. And yet why I do that, "I haven't a real clue" perhaps just to help jog my memory as to what my name might be maybe? lol
Some folks take their screen names really seriously, like if you shorten it, because its too long to type out they really associate themselves with it on a strange personal level. For example, just say their name is "Knowitall" and you address them as "Knowit" (for short) they treat it as equally as they might if it was their real name, like Robert and you just called them "Rob". By which only their most significant other has the royal permission to call them).
In that way I mean.
