    Petro is a nickname since I was a child.
    A shortened version of my impossibly long Polish last name.

    Mine is from an old buddy of mine who said " Lick Me" on a very high pitched nasal voice to pretty much anyone of authority who was questioning what he was doing at the time. You could barley understand it but those who knew him would laugh like a MOFO especially when he directed it at a badged Nazi .
    " Young man. What is your name ? " LLLLLLLLLLLLllllllllllllick~Mii ! Repeated about 3X
    What are y'all doing here tonight " ? LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLlllllck~Mii !
    May I see your license and regi....LLLLLllllick~Mii !

    Mine is a contraction of a part of my name, and the wall of the Sierra Nevada Mountains where I live.

    Is from a character in a favorite book.

    No, I am not gay, but no, I have nothing against them.

    The character was part of a group of adepts that had a specific task.

    I've had this one handle from the beginning of this website.

    I took mine from my best friend who was killed, to remember him by. He turned me on to the Tolkien books when we were kids. I shared my Stephen Donaldson Covenant series with him. He took the name Borillar from a minor character in the story.
