My name originated during my senior year of high school. Trying to figure out a unique email account name that I could easily remember, but one that 's meaning would only be known to myself. I always get crazy looks when asked for my e-mail address. Each part has a meaning and at the time, they were some of the most important things to me. They weren't assembled in order of most important to least, but in an order that could fairly easily flow when spoken. Here is the break down: ad-kota-ha-jes-ban
ad - stands for adrenalin. I raced atv's then and couldn't imagine (and still can't) living without that insane rush of adrenalin.
kota - stands for Dakota. I had a black lab then that was my baby.
ha - stands for Halo. My girlfriend, which is now my wife, and friends used to spend countless nights and hours playing Halo. First person shooter for the original x-box. We truly had an enormous amount of fun and countless memories from those nights/days spent playing.
jess - stands for Jessica. We started dating my junior, her freshman, year of high school and have been together ever since. We have been blessed with two boys. One is almost 7 and our youngest is 3 months old. Our journey, thus far, in life has been rough at times and smooth as glass other times. Couldn't imagine being without her.
ban - stands for Banshee. In 2003, my dream was to own a brand new Yamaha Banshee 350. I got my first job working at Food Lion and bought my first atv. Black and red plastic and that baby would absolutely fly.
It is a peculiar name, but I use it for most online user names and the like. It is never ever taken. ;)
