Some cool, and some obvious stories. I often use two around the web, omgaz is less exciting. I’m Gaz, it’s a humorous play on OMG that a friend said to me once and it kinda stuck.

My other name I use, magintz, is the nickname my parents use for me; well, more accurately McGinty after an old humorous melody about a guy called Paddy McGinty and his goat that my parents would sing to me but as Gaza McGinty’s Goat. It got shortened to McGints and then magintz just seemed more ‘Internet’ – if I can use that as an adjective.
