Meme (from tanyad)

How did you choose your LiveJournal username? Is there an interesting story behind it?

My LJ username is the same as my first real email address many many years ago. A Lumiere. Chosen for several reasons:
* I was a film major in college, and the Lumiere Brothers were famous early filmmakers.
* I made art with light - photography, film, theatre & dance - and A Lumiere means with light in French. I liked the idea of being with light online.
* I also played the piano, and there was a system keying colored light to notes called a clavier à lumières.
* My beloved car, a 1970 Kharman Ghia Convertible was named Lumiere, and I had personalized plates that said so. I am still angry at the idiot who turned left into her and totaled her.
