I'd be more interested in knowing what people think mine might mean. ;-)

These days sadly that is getting closer to the truth than the original meaning.

It's the abbreviation of a nickname a mate used for me:

I chose Old Goat when I started recording to computer, and joined my first forum, thinking all the computer-literate recordists would be kids. Turns out my demographic is well-represented.

I started writing songs in the early 1970's. At that time I was a landscaper for a living. I thought it would be cool to have a nom de plume so I chose Len Scaper.

It kind of stuck.

Mine is a homage to that immortal late 20th-century poet, Sir Mix-A-Lot, to whom is attributed the transcendental verse:
"Cause the 808 kick drum makes the girlies get dumb"

Mine is a fusion of my first and last name. I had a friend who used to call me Rabbi Shanabit and it stuck. No one had it for an email at the time

Here for the gear
 

Mine was a misinterpreted lyric from a song I can no longer remember (sometime during my early teenage Thrash/grindcore phase),but it somehow stuck with me......

final fantasy 6, you have to set the broken clock to 6:10:50 to reveal a hidden chamber in one of the towers in zozo where you can find the chainsaw.

i like chainsaws.

Mine was a concept I came up with for one of my first songs. Like Victorian art for it's beauty but it's deceiving and can hurt you like a needle.
"Damn-a-nation angel for an eye are not enough for someone strong,
Victorian Needle"

US Navy Aviation Electrician's Mates used to be nicknamed onewires. In school we were told it was because of the simple electrical systems on early aircraft.

Mine was supposed to be Old One but I hit the submit button accidently and thus Oldone. Sounds Scandinavian don't you think? Maybe a bit Viking.

I couldn't think of anything cool and I just wanted to post one thing real quick and not deal with coming up with a name that I would use for years. I picked the smoking monkey picture to try to salvage some cool points. Failed, but who cares? The internet isn't real anyway.

At this point I'm quite sure that my and all other GS handles are completely meaningless.

DB = Danny Brown
BUBBA + a southern name, that actually means "my brother" or "little brother" in Texaspeak

Some people get confused and think of the term as a derogatory name and in certain contexts it can be.

It is a name that a mom would call her young son.
Think of a mom telling her 2 or 3 year-old to do something.
"Come on, bubba!"
Also, two close friends could use it, like "Hey, bubba! How's it goin'?"
