It's fairly simple to work out where mine came from but the reason it's so obvious is slightly more complicated.
Not long before I finished working in Antarctica I thought it'd be useful to have a Hotmail account (I didn't know they'd been assimilated by Microsoft) so I asked Dad to sort it out for me (no web access if you work for the British Antarctic Survey).
He picked the most obvious username he could think of and it's since become my standard username for web stuff because it tends not to be already in use.
Dull? Oh yes!
