My name, yep boring. It's a shortened version of my name. So, that's it apart from it creates new planets, sonnets and world piece. Apart from that, it's my name and it's a fairly boring story. Sorry about that.

Age was my nickname from primary school. I believe it's pretty standard for Adrians. It's either that or Ade, which I'm not a fan of.

As for The Provoked Prawn, it was a randomly generated Xbox Online name (from when Games for Windows was still a thing). I thought it was pretty funny as the idea of a prawn that was angry and looking for a fight is fairly amusing. Perhaps I'm also subconsciously saying I'm timid and not really looking for trouble. Who knows?

Part of mine was my old home phone number, the warlock part was always taken so as most phone numbers are unique I played around and ended up with mine.
My signature is made up of my player name , my excellent community, the royal marines crest , soldiers and bulldog are in memory of my dad.

Mine is my graffiti name, I got it from Superman, because Clark Kent was the anonymous part of superman personality, as well as graffity artists are anonymous. So seemed perfect but it was too short for longer walls, so I did added a "one" at the end. So it finished being kentone. One of the things I like it's that it can be pronounced ken-tone or kent-one, so say it how it sounds better for you ^o^

I used to have really bad twitchy, shacky hands (essential tremor) and one of my old workshop managers started to call me twitch back in 1995.

Since then nearly everyone that knows me in real life call me twitch

EVL-TW@ has been my gaming name for many years, it came from the words of my good friend who I absolutely hammered in UT99
you "evil twat" he said and that just lit the bulb in my head,I changed my name from that day and the @ symbol just polished it off really.
Prior to that I was called majorbumhole but someone referred it to me being a homosexual making bumholes so I changed it lol.

I was nick named Spadgy in my less respectable youth. It's Corkonian slang for a swift or a swallow.
Scrapping was a something we did on a regular basis and I had a habit of getting into fights with people bigger then me.
So I'd duck and weave around them like a swallow.
Name stuck. So It's easy to tell how people know me by what name the call me. My family and work colleagues call me by my first name, Old school friends call me by my second name and anyone I knew from my less well behaved days and gaming call me Spadgy.
I've also gone by /KoS/TheIrish. But that's another story.
