I actually can't remember where my 'Atlantis' name came from. Was years and years ago, like 1998 maybe. Before then i used to go by the name "USS Explorer", but i wasn't on any forums or anything. Same goes for my 'The Great Cornholio' name phase :-D So as far back as is important, i have always been Atlantis, meh.

However, there are a couple of things which do fit my name, by coincidence. Like i sink (can't swim) :-P

But there are many variations on my name, Atlantis, Atlantis27, AtlantisProject, etc etc.

Mine is simple- that_guy comes from when all my friends had nicknames and they couldn't think of one for me- they would just say "he's just that guy" and it stuck.

Mine came from Armada 1. I started as some borg name then swiched comps so i rated myself against other people in many clans and ranked myself. Using My middle name as lt_josh or lt_mantyla doesnt sound good.

Well, well Titan. You're lucky. I was gonna use that as my handle, but decided against it. As for the Phoenix . . . ever seen the Harry Potter where old Fawkes gets reborn? My temper's kinda like that (when I actually / finally loose it! ), so I reckoned, why not? Now I use it as either a Username for, oh, EVERYTHING. That or Sorak, character from a couple of books I read once . . . . .
