My dad was 3rd Infantry Division and I was an Army brat. The mascot for the division is "Rocky" the dog-faced soldier, drawn by Walt Disney after he left the service and 3d Infantry.

When I created my character I made a Hunter and thought he looked like a dog-faced soldier, and so it just made sense to name him Marne (which also sounded appropriately Orcish).

When I left the game for a bit I deleted my toons and some Rogue got a hold of the name, which is why I am now Marne with an umlaut on the E.

If I explained it here the thread would probably get removed for name dropping, as one half of the people involved wouldn't want our secret rendezvous becoming public knowledge.

Well Syko is my popping name and this time around instead of just slapping the name of the class I play I wanted to add a tiny spec of flavor into it by adding a spell name or talent name... and voila that's how I came up with Sykoshock.
