    Having chosen a stupid name in games couple times, I decided to create my own, that wouldn't be already used and that would sound a bit cool, and well, this is how my username came to life. I just sat down and came up w this.

    Later on, I found out my name is almost exactly the same as the name of this Pokemon, Xerneas:

    However, I was too lazy to change it. Since I play WoW a lot these days, I got couple more self-made names up my sleeves, but I dont see a reason to change my current one.

    I am writing a book and one of the characters name is Ferox , who I totally don’t use as a self insert to coop with everyday life. Another is called Fossa, I started with that one and decided to split the name, Ferox means ferocious. The ‘X’ is because I am an X-men fan.

    Fat hering is because I don’t have enough blubber to whale, it’s missing an ‘r’ because I should study my craft more instead of playing arena

    I like to cook.

    My user name comes from the book Ivanhoe. At one point in the story, Richard Coeur de Lion (the lion hearted) returns to England having escaped from captivity. He disguises himself as a Black Knight so he can gather his supporters without alerting his brother John of his return, as Prince John is trying to usurp the throne. He enters a tournament, still in disguise, but holds back for most of it lest he reveal himself through his prowess. The crowd begins to boo him and they start calling him Le Noir Faineant... The Black Sluggard. I've used that name for years.

    I was going to wax about early nineteenth literature also.

    I love Ivanhoe! The movie is still one of my favorites, right up there with Errol Flynn’s Robin Hood.

    Way back when I first played an online multiplayer game I had the hardest time finding a name that wasn't already taken. I finally ended up finding the name Werewrym (pronounced "where-worm") in a Dungeons and Dragons book I was reading at the time and thought it was perfect for two reasons. First it has such an odd spelling I never have to worry about anyone using it, and second it sounds pretty cool, and it's the name of a black dragon, which only added to the coolness factor.

    Now I have that D&D Beyond theme stuck in my head again, thanks. Nice name though.

    Don't want to be an a** sorry, but shouldn't it be wyrm and not wrym?

    Nope. That's actually how it is spelled.

    The diminutive of my name is Ben, cause I am a fan of Obiwan BEN Kinobe, I live in a province called Québec, and QC is the acronym. As for Slayer it's simple... BenQC is a Slayer of evil people!
