What Was Your First Screen Name, And Why?

What Was Your First Screen Name, and Why?

It has to have been better than Kaila1996.

In my initial forays into America Online, I was hardly brilliant, in the screen-name creativity department. The worst part is that I kept updating the name, until "Kaila1999" stuck, and saw me through college. When I first joined Gawker Media a million years ago, everyone still used AIM to communicate, and "Kaila1999" was on my first business card. "Do you really like Prince?" someone once asked over chat. I wish it had that cool of a origin story.

Do you remember the first screen name you created, and why you chose to give yourself that moniker? Bonus points for the year of signup.
