I'm definitely late in hopping onto this node, but thanks demerphq for reminding us in the CB that it existed. GeorgeSherston++ for the cool node! =)

I used to use names of my favorite characters from fantasy books. I've used Drizzt (R.A. Salvatore), Pol (Melanie Rawn), Perrin, (Robert Jordan), and Seldon (The Great Asimov). But, these names are often taken, so I wanted to get a nick that likely wasn't used.

My junior year of college I took a math class called Numerical Analysis, which was an utter snore-fest (there were only 4 people in the class for gods sake!!). But I started hearing all these crazy mathematicians names and theorems and numerical methods. So I used nicks like Poincare, Legrange, but my favorite was CubicSpline. Cubic splines are a numerical method for approximating a curve (that's all I can remember three years later =).
