Yar... hoppingo nthe bandwagon.. thats me.

1. What does your first name mean?
Gregory - It means The Watcher, or watchful, or observant.. depending on where you look.

2. What does your middle name mean?
Kristyan - As far as I know it is the nordic version of the name Kristian/Christian. Funky spelling tho huh? I've always quite liked it. Basically as far as I know it means Christian.

3. What does your last name mean?
Wild-Smith - well.. *coughs*
"The most common of all surnames, and might of itself furnish matter enough for a volume. The word is derived from the Anglo-Saxon Smitan, to smite or strike. "From whence comes Smith, all be he knight or squire, But from the Smith that forgeth at the fire?"Among the Highland clans, the smith ranked third in dignity to the chief, from his skill in fabricating military weapons, and his dexterity in teaching the use of them." isn't google wonderful?

The 'Wild' part I'll explain later...

4. So what does your name mean when put together?
Watchful Christian Blacksmith... go figure.

4b. Do you have a nickname?
er.. does Greg count? Not really any, DC is what most ppl call me online (I'm always DarkCryst - if you find that name online its going to be me).. some guy once tried to start ppl calling me Tonka (after the toy - "because you're f**king indestructable!") that didn't catch on..

oh and kaleidoscopes insists on calling me Tom E..

5. What would you have been named if you were the opposite gender?
My parents knew they were going to have a boy. so they chose boy names. My dad was rooting for Quentin for quite a while.. but my mum overuled him.

6. Any other name oddities?
Yes... the Wild part of Wild-Smith. Its nothing to do with my mothers maiden name (Hemmings) its because.. in the 70's my dad was called Smith, his birth name.

And he thought he was wild...
Yes its that dumb.
