Good question. I originally used this name on a school LAN. My thinking was sort of that a chaplain has some sort of higher purpose than just killing, but chaplains are part of military teams. Blame the role-player in me, but I wanted a CS nick that combined a military sound with a depth of character

Being derived from my real name I've been called Penno longer than I can remember. It seemed only natural that I should us it online.

ShoX: you haven't said where yours came from?

My name has gone through quite a few incarnations in it's time.

Originally, I saw it written on the side of an Oasis CD as "Helter Skelter". So it was that.

Then at my first lan, Execute was helping me set up quake. And due to the fact Quake doesn't support too long names and he's from essex. It became "Helta_Skelta".
Then I wanted to make it more 1337, so for a while it was "HeLta_SkeLta". Then over time I've just lost the Skelta and the capital L.

Mine came from a lot of hard thinking (about 5 mins worth)
I was going my very first lan (at pasty's house) and I had called myself Spore Knee, never used it though (cos I'm lucky) but then realised that was a **** mane, so I wanted a name which would meen something, but also sound cool.
I was listening to alot of tunes released from the Ministry of Sound, so it became Minister Rik, but online it's generally just Minister or Mini
