I thought this was funny, then I realized that I'm the only "minion" around to do my wife's bidding.

No Ernie's that I know of in my family, but I'll ask my dad.

My dad turns 51 this year though.

Well, at first, my Internet nickname was only Ajax, because of Ajax Amstedam, not Ajax, Ontario and goats.

Somehow, my username was erased by RDS and not available anymore. I was not even on the already messy Habs board at the time...

So I thought of adding a prefix, and I come up with Stan, because of that Eminem song that was always on the air at the time, and made me think it was a perfect diminutive of Stanley...for Stanley Cup obviously !

Dunno if it's the same thing, but my wife says I make her feel like a minion dollars.

It's my real name. Well a dimunitive of Philippe Parent.

First name is the French corruption of the greek "Phileinippos" which means "Who Loves Horses".

Last name was handed down to me all the way from my ancestor, who landed here in 1651. He was illeterated and came here because there was a need for a butcher in the colony. Amazingly, he couldn't read or write, but he could draw and count, so he drew lines (Which acted as numbers) and animals to help him keep accounts, and drew a knife as his signature.

My middle name, not in my nick, is "Theodore". Which is Greek for "Gift Of God"

Neat, heh?

My nickname started in 1997.
My real name is maxime (max) and back then I use to have a lot of K2 sports gear (like my snowboard was a FatBob, my rollerskates were the Fatty's) and my favorite singer/band was Fat Mike from NOFX, hence fatmax!

Althought, it is really hard to have it all the time on different borad, but I'm proud to have the fatmax@hotmail.com personnal adress!

Shaun is my first name and that's that. I'm think of changing my nick to something more creative.

Oh, so, that has no link at all with the goats. I'm confused in your life.

I got the nickname "Dave Nash" a couple of years ago when I was doing a hockey pool with my buddies. It was Rick Nash's rookie year and, getting a little bit drunk, I got too enthusiastic when I drafted him. The other 11 guys in the room found this so funny, they called me Dave Nash that night (my first name is Dave, obviously).

The funny thing is, I picked Nash in all of my hockey pools ever since and every time I pick him, they all yell "DAVE NASH!".

I really don't know.... Maybe because I wasn't very creative that day I thought it would be nice on a hockey forum.

I hope you don't have wildone26 in one of your pools.
