I have my email account with a user name sri1025 which I don't really like it. I wanted to have firstname.lastname@example.org (Gmail.com) but I was too late for Gmail to get that ID. My official name is Srikanth Srinivasaraghavan and I must be crazy to choose email@example.com even though it is still available (Hey, don't take that now to screw me).
I want to choose a new E-Mail ID which must be:
Short (max of 10 or 12 chars)
Can be crazy yet formal (I don't want to have crazysrikanth though )
How about a nickname or some word play with the phonemes in your name. Something that comes to mind: Ragtime@g.c.
When I was in Korea way back in my military days, I got the nickname Slatmandoo because I used to hit the mandoo stands on the side of the road. For those not in the know, mandoo is kind of like Chinese wanton or a stuffed dumpling. It was especially good in the freezing days of February when you could warm up for a few minutes next to the fryer.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. But this is what I did, I own a domain called srikanths.net, I am using it with Google Apps. And I also have a new account called srikanths@<mydomain.net>
I am migrating my e-mails from my current e-mail address to this new one. I read that it may take a while for Gmail to fetch everything from my old account. Once I am done with it, I will be switching to this account.
I also learned that I can search my own messages from my previous Gmail account in the current Gmail account like "from:me" and "to:me".
