's visits here are brief and few, I'll answer for the meaning behind his name. It comes from JRR Tolkien's languages in "Lord of the Rings", and is Quenya for "servant (-(n)dil) of God (Eru)".
My own nick stems from "JAPH", in lowercase. I chose it when I was 17, and since there are people greater than myself who deserve the name "japh", I chose "japhy", to convey the sense of a young'un (which is what the "y" stands for). I won't be young forever, but I think I'll stick with this nick.
