introduced himself and without letting me speak, he said : "...and you must be Dartagnan." And thus was born my
At the time I had hair till the shoulders, a bit curly, a moustache and goatee. As you can see on my video with Funny Bunny on this page.
The name from Alexandre Dumas' novels is written : D'Artagnan, however I preferred to be original, diffirent and
choose to spell it without the apostrophe.

Yet again, looking for something more original, I said : am the one for my friends, THE Dartagnan. Putting it in French, you get LE... so was born the name : le_dartagnan. Easier to remember than numbers.
So here you have my name : le_dartagnan. Up to this day, still several people call me simply : Dart.
