When I was in grade school and screwing around on mIRC
, I was always "spaghetti99" (at the time, my favourite food + favourite number). Then, because I was young and thought it was funny, I started changing my name throughout conversations. I'd be "macaroni" then "cheese" then start rotating cheeses. I didn't bother looking up the spelling because I was just playing around anyway, but somehow "parmeisan" became the go-to name for long enough that when I realized I'd been spelling it wrong, I didn't care. Now I'm glad it's spelled like that because as others have pointed out, it's nice to have a forum name that's almost never taken. I use this all over the place.
