Some of us have interesting reasons to pick a detective name. What is yours?

jstkdn which some people don't realize right away stands for JuST KiDding! It is something I tend to say a lot in real life after a lot of sentences. A good friend of mine in the US had jstkdn as a license plate of her car, so I wasn't that inventive myself.

My previous other agent was PM, which stands for Project/Program Manager, my profession in real life.

My only detective that I currently play with is freelancermountaineer. Only because Freelancer was taken. Sidney Bristow in the Alias series uses two call signs freelancer and mountaineer.

My real name is David and I lost my usual username to my first detective. somewhere around 2 years ago. (This was before we could un-retire them)

For my next detective I tried to come up with something rhimey to go with David and sort of settled with wave for Dave even though I hate it when people call me Dave.

Well, this is my secondary alias, my original Detective was given away to my old detective agency years ago :(

When I was younger, I used to pretend that I was Kevin Greene, and I worked with the Hardy Boys. And I had most of their characters, and some of my own. It was very fun, so, hence my name!

Mine's a little unusual out of all of these. The first part comes from something I am, which is a black belt in Taekwondo. The second part is pretty weird. In the Bible, the book of Revelations says that only 144,00 will be chosen. Not that I am deeply religious, the number just stuck. I am lazy with the keyboard sometimes so I just shortened it to 144. Hence Blackbelt144 was born!

I took my middle name, which I would love to be known as in RL, and just chose two random numbers and added them to the end of my name.
