Now <B>THIS</B> is truly creepy:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>The name of <I>Death</I> has made you serious-minded, responsible, and stable. You love the security of a home and family, you are fond of children, and, as a parent you would be fair and understanding. Although you have good business judgment, you are not aggressive in your dealings because you do not like to create issues. You would be successful in any position dealing with the public as you have a diplomatic and tactful manner and possess a charming, easy-going nature which puts people at ease. People are drawn to you because they feel that you are patient, kind, understanding, and responsive. You would be effective in a career or in volunteer work where you are handling people and serving in a humanitarian way. While you are honest and responsible, one weakness that is paramount in your life is your lack of self-confidence and initiative, which causes you to put things off and avoid facing issues. Generally speaking, you have few problems with your health; however, there is a weakness affecting the fluid functions of the body. </B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Kao (male)<P>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<IMG SRC="http://cwm.ragesofsanity.com/kao/msroom/m-p.gif">
Your first name of Kao has given you a clever, deep mind and the talent to excel in highly inspirational lines of endeavour as a dramatist, musician, writer, or artist. You can be lifted by beauty in all forms and you are at the most creative when inspired. Your expressive, affectionate nature responds very quickly through your feelings, but you must guard against being possessive and jealous. You feel and sense much that you do not fully understand and cannot express. Your delight in mystery could draw you into occult studies or religions. Unfortunately, uncontrolled thoughts make it difficult for you to retain emotional stability, and prevent you from finding proper peace and relaxation. You tend to centre your interest too much on whatever means the most to you, and then you become over-possessive and suffer through disillusionment and fear of losses. Moods of depression, self-pity and a quick temper cause you much suffering. Inner turbulence can deplete your vitality and have a detrimental effect on your health causing you to suffer through heart, lung, or respiratory troubles, as well as breakdowns of the nervous system. <P>

It's a nickname I picked up on another board, and the only way it would recognize my screen name:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>
The name of Buffy creates a happy, versatile, and expressive nature, with good business judgment and a fine sense of responsibility, which should enable you to establish congenial relationships in positions of trust where you are dealing with the public. You have a clever, quick mind, with the ability to accomplish a great deal in a short period of time, although it is not easy for you to systematize your efforts. This name could allow expression along musical and artistic lines and gives you the desire to entertain and to meet and mix with people of refinement and culture. It also brings out your love of home and family, and in close association you are able to show understanding and affection. Others are attracted by your generosity and your consideration of their interests. Although this name is well balanced, if it is combined with a surname that is not harmonious, you would tend to worry and find it difficult to organize your efforts. Also, should you over-indulge in sweet, rich foods you could experience skin or liver problems.
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>My real name was a bit different:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>
Your name of Chris gives you a very happy-go-lucky, spontaneous nature. You see the humorous side of many situations and can laugh at yourself as well as at others. This name gives you a musical, artistic nature and you would do well in any occupation in the entertainment field. You have many friends because of your generous, happy nature, but if crossed you have a quick temper, although your annoyance does not last too long. You do enjoy an argument and will at times say things just to get others going and then you sit back and enjoy the debate. You lack system and order and find it very difficult to budget and save money. This name creates a nature that can be the life of the party, but many times you can become involved in emotional situations against your better judgment. Your compassionate nature causes you to be too generous and you often give more than you can afford to. You are too fond of sugars and starches, thus you could have a weakness in your liver, kidneys, or skin, creating pimples or eczema. While this name gives you a wonderful personality, and attracts much love and friendship, it is far too emotional and scattering an influence and will not allow the material accumulation nor personal happiness you should have.

heh... i like how mine starts out like Josh's, and even has a few similarities scattered throughout...<P>------------<P>The name of <B>Francois</B> creates a quiet, systematic, and technical nature and a clever, inventive mind, attentive to detail. You are attracted to working outdoors in nature, where you would experience the peace and serenity you so much desire. You would find electricity, electronics, and similar technical fields of interest, as well as computer, mathematical, and scientific studies. You are inclined to be quiet, reserved, patient, and conservative, preferring to test and prove everything to your own satisfaction before committing yourself. You like to finish what you start without interruptions, and also to have everything in its place and properly organized. You take life seriously and can be easily and deeply hurt and go into moods which can be quite extreme at times, causing turmoil and unhappiness. Finding it difficult to join in light conversation with those with whom you are not well acquainted, you could feel quite alone and uncommunicative. As a result, you seem aloof. Your limited verbal expression--except with those involved in your field of interest--makes it difficult for you to communicate your deeper thoughts even to those closest to you. Friendships and personal association are accordingly restricted, as well as business success, because you are over-cautious in venturing into financial risks or promotional effort. You could experience sensitivity in your heart, lungs, and bronchial organs, and also suffer from constipation or other ailments affecting the intestinal tract.<P>-------------------------<P>heheheh.<P>he said "constipation." <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"> <P>------------------

Wow the description of my name is mostly true...
----------------------
The name of <B>Morgan</B> has given you sensitivity and appreciation for the finer and deeper things in life. You can enjoy reading, study, and contemplation about many different subjects. When your interests or curiosity are aroused, you work intensely at new undertakings, but your interests often wane when you encounter drudgery and monotony, with the result that you leave many things unfinished. Your name has taken you into many bitter experiences. The greatest lack in your life is stability and peace of mind. A peaceful and quiet environment, especially out in nature, is one of your greatest desires, but you are constantly taken into chaotic conditions. Because you have high ideals and are a principled person, you have been disillusioned and disappointed in people on many occasions and have experienced much aloneness. You are fond of outdoor sports, where you can find an outlet for your nervous energy. Impulsiveness could bring frequent accidents and unfortunate happenings into your life. You do not like to be restricted or to have your freedom curtailed in any way. You find it difficult to control your thoughts and could swing in moods from one extreme to the other. Your speech can become very critical and sarcastic when you are frustrated or crossed. This name creates a weakness in the heart, lungs, and bronchial organs, and could cause heart trouble, pneumonia, asthma, or tuberculosis. It also creates tension in the nervous system, particularly the solar plexus and stomach, causing nervous indigestion and relative conditions.
----------------<P>The only part that i dont find true is the fondness for outdoor sports thing. I'm not too big on sports. Other than that its all true. Even the whole bad heart and lungs thing, mine arn't in the best of shape <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/frown.gif"><P>------------------

While doing a search for a somewhat obscure name, I came across this site that claimed to have analyses on over a half million names. Seeing as I was waiting for Our Favourite Webcomic(tm) to be posted, I ran a few names through this site just for kicks.<P><blockquote>
The name Deirdre creates a dual nature in that you can be very generous and
understanding, but you can also be so candid in your expression that you create
misunderstanding. You struggle with the requirement to soften your expression
with tact and diplomacy and to consider the feelings of others. Difficulty in
accepting advice or admitting that you may have made a mistake causes you to
appear to be stubborn and set in your ways. Thus, you have too often created
the wrong impression, and friendships have suffered. This name does offer
creative talent where there is the opportunity for ingenuity and originality. You
have a tendency, at times, to have too many ideas on the go, and thus your
efforts are scattered and many things do not reach completion. You are inclined
to do to excess the things you like to do. You have very intense feelings and
find it difficult to maintain stability and happiness. If you allowed it, temper and
self-pity could be problems.
</blockquote><P><blockquote>
The name Ceilidh gives you a strongly independent and highly creative nature,
with drive and ambition to have experiences and accomplish things out of the
ordinary. You can work intently at whatever is new and holds your interest at the
moment, but your interest wanes quickly when drudgery and monotony set in.
Obstacles to your progress or restrictions on your freedom to act create a sense
of frustration which may cause you to feel resentful and even rebellious. You
can then become intolerant of others, and caustic and belittling in your
expression, thereby imposing stress on your personal relationships. Although
you have a clever, quick, capable mind, your progress in life is restricted by
instability in your affairs and misunderstandings with people. Your impulsive
nature can lead to actions which you later regret taking, or to accidents.
Relaxation is elusive, and depletion due to nervous tension can develop to the
point where you become subject to moods of depression and morbid thoughts.
</blockquote><P><blockquote>
Your name of Josh creates a quick, clever mind capable of grasping and
assimilating new ideas. You are rather studious, mentally challenging each new
idea before accepting it. Because you learn so quickly you have little patience
with those whose mental processes are somewhat slower, and you could become
supercilious or somewhat "know it all" in your attitude. This characteristic could
make you rather unpopular with your associates. Although you are very
knowledgeable and intelligent, you often find spontaneous verbal expression
difficult. You crave friendship, understanding, love, and affection abut your
reserved manner appears forbidding to others. You can give expression to your
personal thoughts and feelings most fluently through the written word. You
have a sensitive nature--sensitive to your environment and particularly sensitive
to how your deeper and more serious interests are regarded by others. Your
feelings are very easily hurt and to protect yourself you withdraw within the
realms of your own private thoughts and shut out the rest of the world. Moods,
which are your worst enemy, result. Your sensitivity and lack of verbal
expression frustrate and limit the satisfaction in life to be gained from your
responsible and capable nature.
</blockquote><P>I ran a few other names, too. Some sounded way off, like Helene's. For those interested, the website with the above info is: <A HREF="http://www.kabalarians.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.kabalarians.com</A> <P>I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to entertain any speculations regarding the characters with the above information. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">

Okay, I'm finally back from the Abyss that is reality, and I decided this looked like a good place to start...Let the creep show begin!<P>The name of Satan gives you the desire to meet and mix socially and to create congenial circumstances for everyone. However, all too often, you express yourself in a matter-of-fact or awkward way that results in your good intentions being misunderstood. If you are in sales work, you could do well because of your friendly personality, interest in people, and desire to please. You prefer situations that allow a degree of independence, but are not too demanding in work-load or responsibility. When asked, you are able to give others good advice that you would probably not follow yourself, but must guard against being too opinionated in controversial matters. While you can appear to be confident, you need the moral support and encouragement of others who give inspiration and strength. Weaknesses in health show in the senses of the head as well as in the various fluid functions of the body. <P>and as if that wasn't creepy enough...<P>Your name of Lucifer has given you the ability to handle people. You are pleasant and diplomatic, and seem to sense how others feel. For this reason, you could do well in public relations work. You appreciate the finer things of life, and like to have a good standard of living. You feel that it is important to convey the impression that you are financially secure, and you place importance on your mode of dress, and on appearances generally. While you could do well in certain positions of authority, you have a certain lack of initiative and a tendency to procrastinate. Difficulty in coming to important decisions and a degree of passivity do not allow you the concentration and application required to attain positions of responsibility. You prefer to choose the easiest way to accomplish your goals, and would probably readily admit that you dislike hard work. However, your likeable personality sees you through most situations but when your emotional nature does not allow you to be strictly impersonal in your relationships, you could experience awkward, embarrassing entanglements. Weaknesses in the health could affect the kidneys, or lower back. <P>I could check for what God means, but I won't, lest I manage to melt away like those Nazi's from Indian Jones and the Lost Ark.<P>------------------

I plugged in my first name, Justin, and this is what I got:<P>
Justin<P>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your first name of Justin makes you extremely generous. You have a bubbling, spontaneous nature and a happy-go-lucky outlook which helps smooth the pathway of life. Also you are sympathetic to the needs of others. Interested in art, music, singing, dancing, and anything of an artistic nature, you could become a very fine performer. Your spontaneous expression stands you in good stead during arguments or debates, though you are perhaps too outspoken and inclined to sarcasm. A very real weakness of this name is lack of system and order. The use of this name makes it extremely difficult to carry through and finish the things you start. It is easy to make promises in an effort to make others happy, although not so easy to keep them. You spend your money recklessly, seldom reckoning whether you can afford to be so generous. The use of this name can cause weak ankles, a strong desire for such foods as sweets or pickles, which causes skin or liver troubles, and a desire to eat too quickly. <P>Now a funny thing is, after inputting my name, I put in the name Quinn (checked male), the name of a character in a story that I've long been working on. That name brings up the exact same results. Kind of strange. Also, I can see some similarities between me and the description, but a lot of mismatches as well. The same goes for my character.<P>I wonder how that database functions.

First, my own name (they wouldn't accept Dynonychus, nor even Deinonychus. Darn it, and that's what I wanted to name my firstborn <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">):<P>Your first name of <B>Stephen</B> creates a serious, thoughtful nature, shrewd, efficient, and business-minded. You are one to make your own decisions, and not be influenced by others. You desire independence and freedom from the authority and interference of others. You are not overly ambitious, preferring instead just to seek stable, settled conditions which are adequate to meet your responsibilities. In your personal relations with others, you are inclined to be rather serious, and not to see the humour others see, or to respond spontaneously. Your positive manner and outlook can make others feel that you are imposing your will on them and even interfering in their affairs. Weaknesses in your health caused by the influence of this name centre in the head. Head colds, sinus conditions, hay-fever, and weak eyes are relative conditions. Also, your tendency to worry can lead to insomnia and other overwrought conditions.<P>Strangely, very close to the truth. Certainly weaknesses in my health are all in my head <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">. Now a couple just for giggles (and because they were suggested above):<P>Your name <B>God</B> gives you a strong sense of responsibility in business and material affairs, and the practicality and determination to make a success of anything you undertake. Your ability to organize and direct the efforts of others enables you to excel in any managerial position because you have the ability to grasp the concept of a goal complete with an understanding of the steps to be taken. This name has allowed you to develop depth and breadth of mind. You are able to retain facts, to grasp new information to your existing store of knowledge. You never seem to be out of your depth of understanding. For these reasons others who may not have the same quickness of mind classify you as a "know it all" and, although you may be highly respected, this characteristic is unlikely to endear you to your associates. You have a very responsible nature, are capable and mature, and are willing to assume a position as a pillar of the community. You are quite healthy, but possible trouble areas are found in the generative organs.<P>Or if you prefer: <P>The name of <B>Jehovah</B> creates a happy, versatile, and expressive nature, with good business judgment and a fine sense of responsibility, which should enable you to establish congenial relationships in positions of trust where you are dealing with the public. You have a clever, quick mind, with the ability to accomplish a great deal in a short period of time, although it is not easy for you to systematize your efforts. This name could allow expression along musical and artistic lines and gives you the desire to entertain and to meet and mix with people of refinement and culture. It also brings out your love of home and family, and in close association you are able to show understanding and affection. Others are attracted by your generosity and your consideration of their interests. Although this name is well balanced, if it is combined with a surname that is not harmonious, you would tend to worry and find it difficult to organize your efforts. Also, should you over-indulge in sweet, rich foods you could experience skin or liver problems.<P>Interesting... now THIS one is kinda spooky. Compare with Lucifer, above:<P>Your name of <B>Jesus</B> has given you the ability to handle people. You are pleasant and diplomatic, and seem to sense how others feel. For this reason, you could do well in public relations work. You appreciate the finer things of life, and like to have a good standard of living. You feel that it is important to convey the impression that you are financially secure, and you place importance on your mode of dress, and on appearances generally. While you could do well in certain positions of authority, you have a certain lack of initiative and a tendency to procrastinate. Difficulty in coming to important decisions and a degree of passivity do not allow you the concentration and application required to attain positions of responsibility.

However, your likeable personality sees you through most situations but when your emotional nature does not allow you to be strictly impersonal in your relationships, you could experience awkward, embarrassing entanglements. Weaknesses in the health could affect the kidneys, or lower back. <P>

Comments appear <em>en italique</em>.<P>Your name of Eliot creates an idealistic, sensitive nature and a desire for culture and the refinements of life. <em>Uh-huh.</em> You would work best in a relaxed environment at tasks involving writing, mathematical, or analytical skills that require concentration. <em>Don't forget artistic endeavours, you bastard of a CGI script. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"></em> You appear calm to others, but at times you suffer inwardly with nervous tension. <em>I didn't think I appeared calm...</em> You can find it difficult to express your deeper thoughts and feelings verbally. It is much more natural for you to express your deeper thoughts in writing. <em>Hot damn.</em> A lack of positivity and confidence is a source of difficulty in making decisions in business dealings. <em>I suppose if you have a very broad definition of "business dealings", this could work.</em> You are easily offended, and can suffer with moods of depression. <em>I just PRETEND to be easily offended.</em> You want the best, but lack the confidence and aggressiveness to materialize your desires. <em>Now that's a load of crap.</em> Procrastination is a weakness, for so often you are inclined to avoid issues and to leave things undone until the last moment when you are forced to take action. <em>Which reminds me... my room is on fire. Must do somehing about that.</em> You are inclined to indulge in rich foods that lack proper nourishment. <em>I am the cheesecake... I am the best character... I am better than the bologna and the salami COMBINED!</em> This name creates weaknesses in the heart, the respiratory organs, or the kidneys. <em>Well, I've got asthma, so...</em><P>As a forum nod:<P>Your first name of <strong>Ucchan</strong> has made you desire system and order and to progress step by step, yet you are taken into new experiences, turmoil, and change and rarely can you fully complete an undertaking to your satisfaction. You are extremely analytical and sometimes critical of both others and of yourself, and must guard against sarcastic speech and temper. At times you feel torn between your desire for system and order, and your need for change and new experiences. You do not accept new ideas readily and do not appreciate unsolicited advice. You tend to be impulsive and could attract accidents as a result. The opposing forces in your nature affect your nervous system, causing tension in the solar plexus, indigestion, ulcers, or growths, and moods of depression. You have not found the happiness nor the settled conditions you desire. <P>And for fun:<P>The name <strong>Cecil</strong> gives you a strongly independent and highly creative nature, with drive and ambition to have experiences and accomplish things out of the ordinary. You can work intently at whatever is new and holds your interest at the moment, but your interest wanes quickly when drudgery and monotony set in. Obstacles to your progress or restrictions on your freedom to act create a sense of frustration which may cause you to feel resentful and even rebellious. You can then become intolerant of others, and caustic and belittling in your expression, thereby imposing stress on your personal relationships. Although you have a clever, quick, capable mind, your progress in life is restricted by instability in your affairs and misunderstandings with people. Your impulsive nature can lead to actions which you later regret taking, or to accidents. Relaxation is elusive, and depletion due to nervous tension can develop to the point where you become subject to moods of depression and morbid thoughts. Nervous tension centres in the solar plexus, with nervous indigestion and stomach ulcers a possible result.<P>Meow, baby.

Well, here's mine, with some commentary about their evaluation:<P>As Corey, you are spontaneous, happy-go-lucky, and you enjoy the company of others--the more the merrier. (If those others ar Mr. Computer and Mr. PS2, then you're right. Otherwise, you're really off.)<P>You make friends easily as people are attracted to your warm and generous nature. (Generous nature? Well, that is true. But I'm not a person magnet.)<P>However, you have to watch that others do not take advantage of your generosity, for you are apt to be influenced by hard-luck stories and give when it might be more prudent not to. (Errr...no. I'm cynical - I don't give unless I know it's going to a good cause.)<P>You are ever on the watch for ways and means of making some "easy money" because this name destroys initiative and ambition, producing an easy-going, come-what-may nature which attaches value to money only for the self-enjoyment it can offer. (The easy money part is wrong - I like working with my hands. However, I do tend to value money in how it mkes my life more fun.)<P>Misunderstandings could exist in your personal life because of this emotional power which you have difficulty controlling and also because of a difficulty in accepting a responsibility and seeing it through. (This is true, for reasons I am loath to talk about. Suffice it to say that I'm VERY good at pushing buttons.)<P>You are apt to leave a project unfinished and go on to something else. (Finished project? What's that?)<P>Routine and system are foreign to your life, and, of course, these assets are an integral part of any successful undertaking. (So sue me. I work best in panic mode.)<P>You are fond of sweets and rich foods and your tendency to eat heavily, causes overweight. (So I like sweets. Doesn't everyone?)<P>You could be subject to skin disorders, swelling of the legs and ankles, fluid function disorders or weakness affecting the back. (Not for another 40 years, buddy.)<P>------------------

Most of their "predictions" are reslly general, really common, or just something people like to think about themselves (who <I>doesn't</I> think of themselves as having "a generous nature"?). Did you see how often it churned out "procrastination", "you're very sensitive to the emotions around you", and "you enjoy eating sweet and rich foods"?<P>Basically, it's all fairly safe bets. And even when it gets it wrong, people usually give it the benefit of the doubt. It's part of a technique called "cold reading" which is pretty much how "psychics" operate--whether they're Leo van Pragh (sp?) or some schmuck answering phones for the Psychic Friends Network. The other part of cold reading is zeroing in on specifics based on the responses to previous guesses, but that requires interaction.<P>It depends, to a certain extent, on the subject's tendency to remember the hits and forget or discount the misses. And on the subject volunteering information ("I see a father...a father figure..." "Well, my Uncle died a year ago" "Yes, your Uncle").<P>Some "psychics" help it along by hiring private investigators (this only works when they can find out who will be attending, such as when people buy tickets for a seminar or are part of the studio audience at a talk show), but most (AFAICT) aren't that crooked. A good cold reading is usually enough to convince somebody, especially if they want to believe (like just about anyone who attends a psychic performance).<P>------------------

There's always wires and mirrors behind the smoke, but people like watching the magician perform his tricks anyway. It's called <I>entertainment</I> <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>You only run into trouble when people start believing in the smoke and mirrors. THAT'S called <I>gullible</I>.<P>In all, though, I don't doubt the existance of extra-perceptional awareness, I only doubt the people who claim to posess it <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>------------------
