I was just thinking how many of us have taken our usernames from Leone characters, some just variants on the protagonists' names, others a bit more obscure. Just out of interest I had a look through the full memberlist, and here's the result - the Leone Web Board Register... Enjoy!

FISTFUL OF DOLLARS

There weren't many to take their name from Leone's first western - Ramon, ramone, Silvanito and
silvenito. There were also a few Joes (including a Professor Joe), but it was impossible to tell if any were actually referring to our hero - except of course our dearly beloved cigar joe.

FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE

A lot of our members fancy themselves as bounty killers. Il Monco, Manco, Manco88, Monco aka TMWNN
and Monco Bounty Killer all registered alongside Colonel Mortimer, douglas mortimer, mortimer and mortimerforever.

Their bandit adversary is not only particular popular for a villain - indio, El Indio and in-d-o - but also provides us with some of the most bizarre usernames - Ghost_of_Indio, Shot_by_Indio and, best of all, Indio_Love_Child.

Indio's heroes were also the most popular gang, or perhaps just the one with the most known names, as
Chico, Groggy, The Hunchback and Sancho Perez prove.

THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY

The "good" of the title was by far the most popular franchise of all character names. We have LE BON, El
bon, Il Buono, il buono23, ilBuono, Biondo, Blonde, Blondie, Blondie_74, RBlondie, Mr._Blondie,
iBlondie
and Hey Blondie. I should probably also mention at this point ManWithNoName, FanWithNoName "The Fan With No Name!", Man with Three Names, themanwithnonames, Mann ohne Name, NO NAME and mwnn.

As for the "bad" there is Angel Eyes, Angel-Eyes, Angel Eyes UK, Sgt. Angeleyes, Cattivo, il cattivo and Sentenza.

And our "ugly" brigade consists of Tuco, Tuco, The Ugly, TuccoAndBlondy, tucotours and Il Bruto. Special mention here also goes to LINCOLNS GRANDFATHER.

The Leone web-board has also immortalised a few minor characters from GBU. We have of course General Sibley, Bill Carson and shorty larsen (whatever happened to him?). Also strangely popular was Half Soldier, Half-Soldier and halfsoldier. Other than that there is Arch Stanton, Arch Stampton, Wallace, Father Ramirez and another Shorty.

Perhaps a special mention should also go to uncknown and Unkernown.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST

The OUTW hero was quite a common choice for names - among our users we have Harmonica 2, Harmonica45,
harmonica76, harmonica850
and even Harmonicasbrother.

We have a Cheyenne and cheyennesgun, but only the one Frank and one Jill McBain.

As for the more minor characters, we have a morton and a wobbles.

And, of course...

Dave Jenkins dead long time ago... Jim Cooper, (Chuck) Youngblood - more dead men. No Calder Benson yet though.

DUCK YOU SUCKER

Duck you sucker was not a popular source for usernames, although Sean Sean, sean sean sean, Seansan, SeanSeanSean and juansean pretty much give you the lyrics to the main theme between them.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA

The star of OUTA has been one of the most popular sources for usernames. David Aaronson, david aranson and aaronson went through the more obscure route of taking his real name, while Noodles, N00dles, noodles_leone and Super Noodles went for the nickname. And of course there is our brief visit from Real Noodles aka Scott Tiler.

Few of the other characters were as popular however - the only other OUTA names are Dominic, Dominick, Cockeye, Cockeye444 and JimmyCleanHands.


It's class.

I thought tucoramirez would have already been taken but apparently not. I still like Mortimer, he's my 2nd best character.


tuco ramirez number01 fan.

I was blown away ;) by Coburn's performance way back in '71. I never saw that actor in the same light from then on. His Sean is like my alterego.
Haromica would have been my other choice.
Those 2 characters have been tattooed on my brain for some 35 years.

Nothing to do with Leone. Years ago, I used to have red hair, so I got the nickname red. When I started registering for stuff on the net most places "red" had already been taken, so I just made redyred up on the spot and it stuck.
