my name is not unique to torn [In reply to] Can't Post

I have used it online most places where I need a nickname and don't use my real name. First place I used it was, if I remember right, when I signed up for AOL Instant Messenger in 1998 or '99.

"Acheron" is from Greek mythology (though with a Latin spelling); you can look it up in Wikipedia if you'd like. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acheron

As far as Tolkien nicknames, one of my very early email addresses was "faramir". I don't think I used it much though.

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams
