Writer's Block: The name game

What's the origin of your username? If you could change it to anything else, would you, and what would it be?

I think I answered this meme at one time. It's a variation of 'Midnight Rider', from the song by the Allman Brothers Band. The original video had a biker being chased by the cops, and in the end the biker takes off their helmet and it turned out to be a woman. It inspired me....

I could not find the original, but here is the song:

I like to be consistent, so I try to use one name for all accounts. If I did change it, I'd probably go with maronous prime, for personal reasons.

I was happy with my originality. Thanks!

And where did yours come from? I have absolutely no clue.

Now, you missed your chance to make up a really good story about your user name.
Like...
Ray Charles was a childhood idol. When you were 7yo, he happened to be walking down your street, carrying a pet fox. You almost ran him over with your tricycle because you were distracted by the fox. He was very nice (after he picked himself up off the pavement and stopped his bodyguards from beating the crap out of you), but refused to give you the fox. You dedicated your life to finding another fox to have as a pet, and have been unsuccessful. Taking that username reminds you of that childhood trauma. And, originally, the extra 'x' in the name was a typo, and you didn't want to pay to correct it. But it all worked out in the end because Jamie Foxx played Ray Charles in that movie. All quite a serendipitous course of events.

Or...

It was the name of your favorite local beer.
