Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

It seems I never posted in this thread before, so why not.

This goes back to the days of IRC; I'm guessing around 2000. I was just chatting with some friends, and we started messing around and changing our nicks to various rude and/or funny things. At one point someone started writing their username backwards, and after a little while I turned the word Norwegian around and it became Naigewron. I can't remember if I just liked the way it read (it sort of looks like an actual word), or if the other guys started using it when addressing me, but somehow it stuck.
