Well my dad is spanish and my mom was taken by him during on of the raids upon a ship she was on. My mom is ?--a wench? This gave me the name of

Bizmalah Delmar.

Bizmalah-- spelled in another way, is for allah. It is said in the coran to mean to allah the most merciful the most gracious, but in other languages means dont press your luck. Not sure if this name came from mom or not.

Delmar -- Spanish for the sea or ocean.

So

don't press your luck of the ocean!

Lets see if I can get this right:

A long time ago in what is now Claire County, Ireland...There was a King named Cormac Cas...

One of his descendants was named Cu Mara... His descendants took the surname Mac Conmara, which was later changed to Mac Namara. Years and Years later, it was changed to McNamara, which is (mundanely) who I be... Josh McNamara, a direct descendant of the 5th Century King of Thomond, which is now in the general area of Claire County Ireland. <_<

Duncan is my SCA first name, also taken from my family's history. Patrick is my SCA middle name, also from my family's history... Patrick MacNamara from the song Kilkelly, the School teacher who helped an illitterate father write letters to one of his sons who left ireland and came to America during the potato blight.

The Captain part of my username... I am the Captain of the Iron Lotus, a Ship within the SCA. I was awarded my Captaincy by the Matriarch of the SCA mercenary Household Black Company in 2003. I am also one of the Commodores of the Allied Outlanders Fleet. :D

Hmmm, well mine is simple enough really. The 'Black' comes from a time more than 30 years ago from the SCA. I wore solid black clothing. All the time. This was before Goth was cool, btw, so I wasn't part of that group and never have been.

The name 'Talon' I took because I like the sound of it. It later gained the added reference to my raking style of verbal confrontation when braced. My nails didn't hurt the name either.

'MacNamara' is, according to my grandmother, a part of our family tree. I considered using 'nic Namara' just because I like the sound of it better.

I'm Welsh-Irish-Ojibwe by descent. I've thought of changing the name of late. My real name is Siani, I'm told it's Welsh for 'Jane'. :huh:

So...'Black' Talon (nic Namara?) :lol:

Captain - eh, why not?

Sophia - a name I happen to find very pretty

M. Eisley - the M stands for "Mos". For those SW fans, Mos Eisley is Lucas' version of a pirate city. "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy," said Ben Kenobi of the sand-logged spaceport.

As so many of you, I was also a member of the SCA (ten + years), under the name Rathyen de Burres of Acton—being a direct decendant of Sir Richard de Burres Knight Templar. I am told the ruins of Acton Hall still exist in England, mainly a foundation and a lot of grass.

For my pirate name, I wanted "something completely different." Went to the web site that gives you pirate names but didn't like any of them. In my writers group we all picked pirate names for Talk Like a Pirate Day, and mine was Fireship Fanny Todd, as I have red hair. But I though that name too long for this pub(besides, I know there is another, less flattering, meaning to the term "Fireship.") , so I came up with False Ransom, and the story that goes with it—held for ransom, ransom paid, but in lead coin instead of gold (full story under my introduction New Member).

BTW Loved Mos Eisley - my favorite SW's town! :lol:

Gutter punk is a derogatory term applied to young homeless often Traveling individuals that are thought to, but may not actually prescribe to the ideals of the Punk ideology.

Punk ideology is Individualism, anti-authoritarianism, political anarchism, free thought, and ethical enlightenment are concepts, and many others..

as for 13 its my lucky Number..

Much Respect

:lol:

Thanks Pirate Petee, Mission and Blackjohn. And RumbaRue...I figured a few folks might get the hidden meaning right away...good catch! :D It was funny when I came up with the name...I didn't figure I was that big of a SW fan, but I guess I am (I was crazy enough to wait for hours at a time at the Ep 2 Convention...ugh).

Mission - Indeed...I saw your creation for your bathroom. I see how it can look like the Death Star, though I do see the shape of the Millenium Falcon in it too for some reason.

False Ransom - it's my favorite area in the SW movies...by leaps and bounds over Naboo.

Gentleman of Fortune.... hmmmm well I wanted it to go with my pirate re-enacting web site but the truth is.........

Darth Vader said "Gentleman" in Star Wars.

He said "of" in The Empire Strikes Back

and then he said "Fortune" in Return of the Jedi

So, you see, I too was using a cryptic STAR WARS name that nobody guessed!

Monterey Jack is pretty bloody obvious, besides being from that area of california; I've used it when I do my shows involving kids; the bad guy is Pierre DeBris and my faithful sidekick is Guano. Even the grownups get a laugh. For the more serious stuff I use Josiah Gunn , an old family name from my wife's side. Nothin like MJ at all and not likely fit fer this forum!

With Nefarious as your title, do you really need a last name?

Foxe (or Fox) was the name I was born into. With a real name like mine I'm not gonna start calling myself "Sparrow" am I?

Plus, when I was at school I was "Foxe", and when I left school my best friend and I shared the same forename (he had it Monday to Wednesday, I had it Thursday to Saturday, and we took it in turns on Sundays), so we were both known by our surnames.

So, I've always been "Foxe".

Or a TIE Fighter.

This was actually my original model. I wanted to use the thing Vader threw Luke through on Bespin in TESB, but that was too complicated to build into a mirror. As it is, I had to eliminate the rounded edge to make the thing easier to build.

Look, you gotta' believe me. My name is Captain Sage.... ;)

I am the Captain of me site, The Pirate's Realm. I could have referred to meself as Lord of my Realm, but Lord Sage sounds too Star Wars-ey, NOT that there's anything wrong with that.

....and Sage means a wise and discerning man, but many who have no sense of humor think that pretending to be a pirate is the worst way to act like a sage :lol:

I googled the name and found a few Captain Sage's in history.

Hows about "Darth Sage"?
