9/10. Short, to the point, easily recognisable and easy to type, all good in my books.

[long story]

Always been interested in the ancient, the myths and the legends of cultures and how they intermingle with others; it's always fascinated me.

Always like the game Tomb Raider, which got me into Ancient Egypt many, many moons ago and Stargate SG-1 reinforced that with the introduction of other cultures. Upon their latest story arc, a theme of Arthurian Legend was used in which Merlin played a particularly large role in. So I browsed and researched him on Wiki and there found the origins of this person (again because the deeper meaning is usually more interesting than what the surface presents).

Myrddin Wyllt was one who was a 'prototype for the modern composite image of Merlin' and that name is very cool so that stuck, plus this is the coolest line ever:

'Myrddin reportedly prophesied that he himself would die by falling, stabbing and drowning. This was fulfilled when a gang of jeering shepherds drove him off a cliff, where he was impaled on a stake left by fishermen, and died with his head below water.'

Anyway, that name stuck with me since this forum. And it's pronounced 'Mir-thin' if you go by the Welsh orientation, which the whole of Arthurian Legend is - that is before some bloke took it upon himself to rewrite it, not naming names though *cough* Geoffrey of Monmouth *cough*.
