Unfortunately mine was just a dummy name for facebook that was easy to remember. I hate facebook but I could only get timely support from a couple of companies via facebook chat. I wanted a throw away email for ringplus too so just used the same.
The avatar - well you all know where that came from!

But I do remember that I had to come up with a name for my Youtube channel that I created to privately share videos a with family and friends, and after I was informed that the first few names I chose had already been taken, I just created a username that I was pretty certain had not been taken. Thus-- "I is a morph" it was, which was, I think, vaguely derived from something I was reading at the time. Since then, I have used this name on this forum, the R+ forum, and a Linux forum.
The morph character was the sidekick / star on an art show for kids when I was growing up. Used to love watching him and he was quite an institution on the BBC.
Back then, he was made out of plasticine and animated through still photos.
