My brother's name is Trent. But he couldn't hit three baseballs out of the park as a kid. He couldn't hit three tennis balls out of the backyard as a kid...Trent
Trent was the name of a 1st edition D&D character I played years ago. I was umpiring a Jr. Babe Ruth baseball tournament at the time and a kid named Trent drove three baseballs out of the park in one game, so it was on my mind when I rolled up the character. Plus it's half-way related to my own name (Trevis). My Trent was a Ranger and died a senseless death at the tender age of Level 12. With the entire party dead but my character, Trent fought an epic battle to escape the ungodly horde our DM dropped on us. Trent had rescued all the bodies of his friends, tied them onto a string of horses and was about to make his escape when an invisible stalker, the last living monster in the complex, killed him from behind. That was my first TPK.
You never struck me as a fan of Lane.Lanefan was for a very long time my longest-serving and best-known character: a no-BS Fighter who would argue with anyone. Seemed appropriate for a discussion board.
As for the name itself, it comes from a language I and some others waved at inventing many years ago and never did anything with: in that language 'La' means 'Man' and 'Nefan' means 'Moon'; Lanefan thus means 'Man [of the] moon'...which also fits well.
Also, this means it's pronounced in three syllables: lan-ef-an. Can't count how many times I've heard it pronounced as if I'm a supporter of someone named Lane...
So that they could more easily hack into their staff’s online accounts?California Pizza Kitchen used to- and may still- have a policy that waitstaff name badges were supposed to use the server’s first name and- instead of their actual surname- their birthplace.
