what’s in my name (xenoterracide)

So 2 days in a row I’ve had developers discussing the root of my handle.

so here we go.

xeno is greek, normal definitions aside in science fiction it is often used when referring to alien life forms.

terra is latin, it means earth.

is english (with latin roots), means killer or killing.

loosely translated it meant to me ‘alien earthling killer’, but that was when I was 16. Now, it’s just my handle and has no other meaning to me other than it’s unique and a part of my history.

yes I’m aware that I mixed language roots, and I know some of you have a problem with that. To those that do, it’s just a name, get a life.
