NeverReno99 was from some lyrics in a rap song that I thought were clever.
My usual name, GreenVojo, has to do with a long story relating to the first time I was introduced to marijuana as a child.

Gosh, I think my explanation is going to be much more long-winded than everyone else's.

I have a tendency to be indecisive about birthday presents, and thus, while I'm deciding what I actually want from my parents (which I think, in this case, was a bass with, in hindsight, too many strings) they give me a "placeholder" present, as it were. They gave me some chocolate with customised packaging. The packaging was based on the cover of an essay I had just written/designed for A-level art about Damien Hirst, which in turn was based on this picture by Damien Hirst. Where this says "Steak and Kidney" my Dad has put my first and middle name, and where it says "ethambutol hydrochloride" he'd put "chocolate", so it appeared that my surname was chocolate. "Chocolate" also has the same first letter, vowel sounds, and annunciation as my actual surname, so this worked quite well, and as I'm not overly fond of my surname, I told people I met in my first year at university that my surname was "Chocolate".

My actual first name is Thomas, and I don't like abbreviating it to "Tom" like a lot of people do. Thus, some of my friends (the ones I told my surname was Chocolate) nicknamed me Tommo.

Hence Tommo Chocolate.

"It's my nickname" probably would've been a lot less long-winded.

Just sayin'.

True, but that wouldn't explain why my screen name is what it is. It'd be pretty pointless just posting "it's my nickname".
