When I first needed to come up with an account name, I decided that I didn't want to just use my name, but I couldn't think of anything really cool. So I did a little play on my name.

My name is Irene who is the Greek goddess of peace. Pax means peace and originally my account name was iampax pronounced eeyampax. But that was before I had learned how to type. After a while I decided to shorten it to pax because it was faster to type.
