Re: My real name is not Zach.

I prefer calling you my your second name, with a bit of poetic licence.

Your first name is call but not as good as my name, it means "ash tree clearing".

Hint of my name in there.

Zach's real name means "well, desire" and "helmet, protection" and it's ranked 8 in England/Wales for boys names

Re: My real name is not Zach.

Helmet, protection ??

So it must be one of these:

http://www.behindthename.com/php/view.php?name=elmo

So it is either "Friedhelm" or "Elmo".

Re: My real name is not Zach.

I think Insomnia's Real Name is "Jordan"

JORDAN m
From the Hebrew yarad meaning "flow", and odan meaning "to design". Literally "Irrigation Designer"

Re: My real name is not Zach.

Ah, but you see, here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Most_popular_names#England_and_Wales

It says that most popular baby name #8 is William. And William means: valiant protector, derived from old German helmet; resolute helmet, defender.

And Ashton means: Ash tree town. Kind of similar. http://www.thinkbabynames.com/name/1/Ashton

Liam is cool, but Friedhelm would sure get attention.

Re: My real name is not Zach.

My prefer insomnia as I'am always either Insomnia or Insomnia1989 on the internet. 1989 being my year of birth.

I personally prefer to call Zach/Liam by his surname name. It's cool.

Re: My real name is not Zach.

I was looking at some old posts and I found this one:

http://www.mathsisfun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=295

It contains both your real names...so really, they'd already been revealed.

Re: My real name is not Zach.

I was me, Zach was him and every other person was a girl named Lucy. I got confusing.
