Cherub: An angel of the second order whose gift is knowledge; usually portrayed as a winged child.
Qerub is my (Christoffer Sawicki’s) handle. It’s mostly used online, but sometimes offline too by others.
One day in our summerhouse, many years ago, I sat and played some game on my PDA1. In the game, which was about saving humans that jumped out of a window with a trampoline, there was a highscore level named “cherub”. I was looking for a new nick at that time. “Cherub” sounded cool and I could associate with it. I replaced the first two letters with Q to make it even cooler. (I played a lot of Quake at that time). And the rest is history, as they say.
Some time ago, a lad in Malmö stole my handle. If you find a Qerub running around in the World of Warcraft or writing crap on LiveJournal it is not me.
