jm = initials

wreck = my username when i used to play games, i dont remember how it came about cool.gif

post #319 of 376

well I use this name for pretty much everything forums, email, other accounts, etc...

 

Why? Well let's see... "young" (about 13 at the time) "n" (and) "gray" (First gray hairs).

 

Seems weird to have gray hair at such a young age, so after some research I actually found out a few things... My mom has a thyroid condition which is linked and my brother has diabetes which all are in the same group as premature graying. So I went with it!

 

Some people have suggested I change it because of the common quick read of it where the "r" in gray is dropped... But it has a good meaning so I'm sticking with it.

I had to come up with some sorta Internet psuedonym...but I was (and still am) bad at coming up with names. Then the idea struck: "Why not go nameless?"
 

Unfortunately, I'm not the first or last person with the idea, so the latter part's undergone some changes to differentiate myself. The latter three letters have no real meaning, just to shift focus back to the former part.

Person First Grapher is how I've always interpreted them.

Can you explain that? What does "veru" mean?

Here's a quote from where I originally got the name:

MICHAEL: In Hebrew, Mi kha-'el? is the rhetorical question "Who [is] like God?" - in Quenya Man [ná] ve Eru?. This may be contracted to Manveru.

 

Eru is the name of the creator god of Tolkien's universe, if anyone's ever read the Silmarillion. "Ve" is "like," so veru  by itself would be the contraction of "ve Eru" or "like God."

post #326 of 376

Ah, all the dictionaries I found either don't have "ve" or translate it as "as" instead. Makes sense now. I never read the Silmarillion.

post #327 of 376

Hm. I'm going off of the dictionary by Helge Fauskanger. It lists the meaning of "ve" to be "as, like," or "after the manner of."

I know its a rhetorical question but:

Had to be done.

 

On a more serious note, the "answer" in Hebrew/Aramaic sources is that you're considered "similar" to him if you are merciful/compassionate and benevolent.

Has Chuck ever named his legs? "Mercy" and "Compassion" would be good.
