Man that had me cracking up. Such a great response.
But let me tell you the true life story of "Johnny9".

On April 26, 1996 around 3:15 PM I was working on a polymer capacitor case for Septa. I was cutting the polymer base mount; which was rather thin at 1/4". The poly hit a nick in the table saw fence which caused it to go sideway a bit, so I backed off a little so I could continue the straight cut.

Now the thing with poly and a 1/4" carbide bit blade spinning at a high rate of speed is the friction. Friction leads to heat, heat + polymer = melting which leads to a sticky material.

So now we have gummy polymer and a table saw spinning very fast. The poly grabbed, kicked out, my hand slammed straight down on top of the blade and turned my right hand ringfinger and small portion of my palm in to what could only be described as a mess.

And that is where the 9 came from. My first name is John, but my friends at the time called me Johnny9.

Another fun fact. My middle name is Wayne. Yeppers, I'm "The Duke", John Wayne. Lots of fun stories with that. Like how the neighbor girl cried hers eyes out whe the TV informed her that John Wayne was dead. Her mother had to bring her over to see me to get her to stop crying.

Anyway, no, I haven't noticed other similar names.
