My name is an outcry of frustration, which I, atleast in time past, would yell when I got killed in a game.

It's put together by "Nej" which means no, "ARGH" is the sound of irritation and/or surprise, and "mand" which means man and is a word that is sometimes randomly put into the end of a sentence, when a Danish person is surprised and/or irritated. So the full name would be: "Nej, ARGH, mand," but if you pronounce it quickly and with enough irritation it becomes: "Njarghmand."

It is pronounced nyarh-man. The y is the same as the one used in York. Think of the pirate "yarh, matey," and you pretty much got the pronunciation of my name.

I know that Veritas is just the latin word for truth and also the name of the roman goddess of truth. But i took this name out of another reason.

Veritas is a character from a book i really enjoyed some years ago. He had two brothers: chivalric and edel (noble in english). They were named after characteristics their parents wanted the children to have. And Veritas was like his name. He always spoke the truth and politics werent really his matter, but he was also very sacrificially if it comes to his dutys. (he was the second prince of a kingdom) In the end he indeed sacrificed himself to protect his kingdom and the adjacent ones against a greater evil with the knowledge that no one will ever remember him or his doings.

umm yeah there are more set in the same place but each trilogy concentrates on a different characters.  All good though.

Xeon, I created it from the name Neo (The matrix), I was thinking on for months.
Aradoras is kind of surname for it.

Baby bon, in CoD if you are pro enough (or you think you are), you give yourself a name like: Noob, Lame, so something totally not manly. Yes it is from the comercional :)

I don't really use other nicks, if I do they are just for fun and has no originate.
King Regards,

With all my name can be related, it's totally different of what you was thinking... :)
