Writer's Block: The name game

What's the origin of your username? If you could change it to anything else, would you, and what would it be?
Good question. My username is a made-up name. I have this fictional planet, you see, called Traipah. I adopted the culture and religion of one of the groups of people on this planet. In that vein, I gave myself a name: Fayanora Ahnabahn Tahlahmorgk. At the time, it was a perfectly fitting name. "Fayanora" means "flirtatious," Ahnabahn is kinda like a reverend or a priestess, and "Tahlahmorgk" means "one who loves trees." It's so darned unique, no one else has it, so I started using it for everything. That way, I wouldn't have to remember a whole fuckton of usernames.

I hate illness

I got ill a few weeks ago with a cold. I don't think it ever really went away, because I kept coughing, occasionally coughing up phlegm. But otherwise, I was fine. The coughing was extremely irritating, though; I kept coughing so hard I had to stand there and strongly fight the urge to puke, the coughs were setting off my gag reflex.

Then last night, just as I decided I'd never gotten better and took some vitamin C, D, and zinc, as well as echinacea, it got worse. I started blowing my nose a lot, and getting stuffed up. My body started to ache. I went to bed feeling like shit, forgetting to turn on the alarm clock. I slept till 4 PM, feeling even worse than before. At least the cough is gone now.
