Naemanson - Combination of two things.

In the SCA I was Harald Naemanson (No Man's Son), Icelandic farmer and (t)raider at the end of the 11th Century. I chose Iceland because I liked the idea of a democracy in the medieval world. I got into trouble because I refused to bend the knee for the king. I had a whole spiel of freudian slips which I used to describe myself. (I and a large number of like minded fellow take our ship along the European coasts raid... er, trading with the people we meet...)

I developed that name because of my travels. I like to consider myself a son of Odyseuss and use the name he gave to Cyclops, Noman.
