    Same here, I'm happy with the first name my parents gave me, although it is quite common; in Finland Kari was the 5th most popular name given for boys the year I was born. As a noun it means an underwater rock, I don't know how to translate it in English, you know those rocks the sailors don't see before the boat's bottom has a hole after hitting one .

    Kari is a lot of things from a moon of Saturn to a U.S. radio station.

    Back in the early 90's when I first got on the internet, everybody referred to it as the information "superhighway". I figured I was just strolling along the superhighway so thought of using strolling but handles were limited to only 8 characters back then so I shortened it to strollin and have used that handle ever since.

    I happened to be listening to the Aikea-Guinea EP by the Cocteau Twins the other day, when I registered over on TenForums. The last track is called Quisquose, so there you have it. Used the same name here.

    I was listening to tool's AEnima album when I signed up. There is a track called "Message To Harry Manback". It's very profane & a bit gruesome. Poor Harry.
    Anyway, I just thought it was funny if a bit less than unique.
