    The meaning behind our online names?

    Whenever I see a new online name that is funny or original, I'm often curious as to how it came about. Sometimes it's obvious, but othertimes not.

    So let's hear the story behind those names......

    Xerces is a mis-spell of XerXes the King of Persia. I am a history buff and a sysadmin who knew this assigned it to me years ago in a turn based BBS game I used to play. No reference to the the Xerces Blue Butterfly!

    This used to be my password at work. We could not use a real word, and it had to include numbers. Percula is not a word found in the dictionary, and it is my favourite fish (along with a Powder Blue Tang, but that is too long). They use to change the password every 60 days, so I would go from 9, to 99, to 999, etc.... It's not because I started reefing in 1999.

    By the way, what's the meaning behind Toutouche? I could guess, but I might get in trouble.:

    My name is because we used to have a little Maltese named Toupy and my wife would use Toutouche as a nickname for him. I had to come up with a name for on RC at the time right around when we had to put him to sleep at the ripe young age of 5 because of a spinal column problem that was getting qorse and worse even after a few operations. So in his honor I used Toutouche. I should have used Toupy though when I think about it now.

    We could start calling you that if you like.
    As for my name, I'm just not that creative

    I think I'm already known too much as Toutouche.
