This is what I read, I thought the 'c' was for the corporal part, guess I made a leap of assumption.

Pretty simple on my part... first name Scott, middle and last initials are A, and a numeral 1 on the end for no real reason.

My real name came from my father's rank in the USMC, Lance Corporal Steven Whelchel.

My screen name is as described above, knapp (last name), then my initial (l) and my wife's initial (c).

Good thing that he wasn't in the navy. Being named Seaman would have gotten you beaten up even more in grammar school.

Nah. I did the beating up in grammar school. Mostly people who cracked on my father's military choice. Seems having a smart mouth and having quick fists don't necessarily go hand in hand.

Well, I'm not a noob, but I do get 15 or 20 IM's a day asking about the origins of my handle as well.

My buddy Bob, who now lives in Chicago, gave me this nickname. The story about how I obtained it is kind of long, so I'll put it here:

and yes, I have the shield up and am fully prepared to be called a pig and all that other stuff . . .

I'd not seen this thread before it was dug back up recently, some fun reading.

Kilroy, you big softie :-D I had thought your handle was a reference to the Styx album/Mr. Roboto song, and never gave it any further thought. After reading the history behind it I googled it and read more on the history from the WWII era. Interesting stuff. This afternoon at work I took the opportunity to draw a little figure peering over a wall on a whiteboard in a miscellaneous conference room. :-b

I hopped on my bike, rode to the store and bought a rose and a card. Early the next morning (while delivering my paper route) I left the rose and card on her doorstep. I didn't want to sign my name to the card (13 year-old wuss that I was) so I scrawled "Kilroy was here" instead.

Well, she was beaming the next day telling everyone about her "secret admirer" (what now would be considered creepy was still "romantic" in the 1870s) so I figured "what the hell". "Kilroy" left her a note or a card and a rose every week or so for a couple months.

Unfortunately one of her friends recognized my handwriting, and one day shouted out "Hey, Kilroy!" Bright Bulb that I was I turned around, and the jig, as they say, was up.

The name stuck, and now, some twenty plus years later, my friends still call me Kilroy.


2 years after you explain it, and some 22 after thea act, I'll give you the "attaboy". This was a great story, and you had a good thing working there if you could have held out in secrecy for 5 years until she was about 18. ;-D
