    Mne was actually a combo of Foxy Brown (movie) and Jimmy Page, but, Jimmy Page is foxy, so both are valid reasons, lol.

    My real name is Arthur but I've been called Bucky since the day I was born.My family & neighborhood friends have never ever called me by my real name. When I started working at 17 yrs. old I was called Artie by ppeople at work so that's why I am:

    I kinda just like the word oblivion (i first read it in a poem by philip larkin named "wants").

    Normally my screen name is Anathema but on a music forum ppl might think I'm a fan of the band... I'm not.

    I used mine from a novel, I am sure most people have heard of Beowulf before...lol. Anyway there is a great pair of novels written by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle and Stephen Barnes, and they sort of updated the Grendel legend, both books are good the first one being excellent and I am positive it will be made into a movie someday.

    Lord I added so people knew my gender, so there you have it Lord Grendel, my avatar is from an album cover by a band from Holland, called, you guessed it Grendel...so it has almost perfect symmetry.:D
