Mine is a combination of a nickname given to me in the Navy (Bull) by my buddy that is from Baltimore. His nickname was the "Elk". Everybody on a ship got a nickname. I was on a guided missile cruiser for a little over 4 years. "Bull" was because I'm (was) strong and stocky, and because I'm very bull-headed... I once stormed into the Chief's Mess underway practically taking the door off the hinges and picked a Chief up off the couch by his neck threatening to dismantle him limb by limb because he hung up on me during a "discussion" over the phone...

The "Fly" part was added because I'm a pilot (fixed wing and rotor) and over 20 years ago I needed a handle for a pilot website message board (iPilot) and added it to Bull.

Pictured below from L to R... The Elk... The Bull... The Moose circa 1987 off the Phillipine Islands departing Subic Bay.

Been using it ever since for most everything including emails...

Have been reading this forum for many years, finally decided to post the odd time. I had been a STOWAWAY on the forum the whole time I was reading and not posting. It also has a little nautical flavour to it
