. Cool...i met someone on IRC once who was another Steg, because his last name is something like Stegeman, if i remember correctly. My cousin came up with Steg sometime during 8th or 7th grade....he would make up nicknames for me and my brother, and then my brother would respond with a nickname for him, and then he would make a new one, and my brother would respond, and so on, with the names brother had a list of him and Jeffrey's somewhere, but it's probably away in storage now. All i remember is that somewhere along the line there was a stage (which i liked) that went: Stephen ~ Jeffrey ~ Alan Septagon ~ Hexagon ~ Octogon and then, sometime later, came the stage of Steg ~ Jag ~ Ag And that's when it stuck. Probably because my brother went to a different highschool for freshie year, and me and my cousin were left in the same class. However, then my cousin developed a dirty mind, and started evolving the names again: Steg Steed (from a line in _Romeo and Juliet_) Steedwanger Steedbanger Gangbang... Luckily, some of the other people in my class who were fond of giving people nicknames heard "Steg" and didn't hear the other versions. :-) . So then more than just my cousin started calling me Steg (one guy put a Z at the end...Stegz). And then i made my AIM screenname (and IRC nick) StegBazak, so it spread everywhere. Except now, since my computer doesn't work in college, none of my friends there know about "Steg" (although the "other people fond of nicknames" from my highschool class may be coming to my college next year), so i'm not called that there. yet. -Stephen (Steg) "Eze-guvdhab wa'hrikh-a tze, / "zhoutzii wa'esh," i eze-mwe."
