    Sooo, are we to change our name? Is it possible to modify our handle or must one completely re-register (hardly a concern for me, noting my join date, but perhaps more so for others).

    This thread was just an idea. Your not required to change your handle, but you can do so if you wish in another thread. I think the thread to get a name change is in the help and suggestions section of the forum.

    Ahh, thank you.

    It's a good idea, heck, even for kids let alone on a forum.

    Just gotta get the wife to go along with it...

    I chose a Germanic username to be in tone with the Germanic orientation of the forum. I admit I studied some of the usernames before I chose one for myself, and noticed many mythology inspired names.

    I understand that some Germanic heathens for example do not appreciate that others take the names of gods, giants, elves, etc. The way I see it though, it is a form of paying homage or honoring them. I would like to see a comeback of Germanic names, regardless whether mythological or traditional, even Christian Germanic names, as opposed to all the modern names we have nowadays.

    My username is after the legendary first Swedish king of the Yngling dynasty, although I'm not Swedish myself. I could have named this account Peace-Fróði, but that just doesn't roll off the tongue right. Other options include Dan, or simply Frothi, but I like it the way it is.

    This is interesting, because since the inception of this thread, I have actually come across three people of completely German stock with the forename Sigurd, all of them are in the 50+ age range, one of them is a notable academic with some publications to his name.

    So I suppose I'm somewhat safe and thank the gods I never adopted that name change to Seyfried. People DO know me as Sigurd for over a decade and it's good that way.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    John = Johan
    Very poor eyesight = the Blind

    (Or as old age is creeping up on me I could just as easily be 'the Bald' or 'the Toothless'
