My name is actually a play upon a few terms.

Let's just say I was involved in some schemes of dubious origin in my younger years (Zecho easily beats me though ;). A change of names was.. erm.. appropriate. I tried out various aliases but couldn't come up with anything that I liked. Then something just *clicked*.

  1. I had recently been reading some Chaucer and stumbled upon a term I hadn't heard before "argoile". Which is Potter's clay.
  2. Deas and Tuath of Argyle are two brothers in 8th century Scotland in a very humourous allegory. It's much more subtle than Swift, filled with half references and hinting at double meanings. In short I like it quite a bit.
  3. The pattern Argyle comes from the clan tartan of the that area.
  4. Guile, as I'm sure you all know, is cunning manipulation, skillful deception.

Well this time I was choosing a nick for 'offical' fora so I wanted something that related (at least in my own mind) to what I was doing. At the time I was doing a lot of data modelling and database work.

So Arguile is to 'cunningly4 mold1 data into a pattern3'. A little pretentious when put like that, but I was pleased with it.

In addition to what's stated above, it also carried a few other connotation for me. I was concealing myself and reworking my persona, which seemed to fit. As well 3kBC-1.4kAD British Isles interests me greatly, and it sort of sounds like it came from within that period and area. It also fits into SCA/RPGs pretty well ;).

Probably way more than you wanted to know; as most of the meaning is lost to anyone but myself.
