Very simple. Originally, I chose the 'athenian' part because I liked to think of myself as having known the philosophers and culture of ancient Athens. The '200' part was because I liked the sound of usernames with numbers at the end. Later on, it was just what I was used to being called.
Got to love diminutives that are longer than the original name. I chose this user name because I really, really (to a geek-like degree) like Sherlock Holmes and always thought Mycroft was one of the most interesting supporting characters.

I used to be an active member of INTPopen and some other yahoo groups. I was using my email address which contains my last name and once, somehow, someone sent a weird email to my mom from my account. I never figured out how it happened, but it made me paranoid.
I decided to use a different handle for my groups. I came up with one, but one of the guys on the groups didn't like it because it was stupid, so I brainstormed until I came up with one he didn't think was stupid.
It had to be a monstrosity because everything is already taken on yahool and I dislike having numbers in my username. The end result was cafeaulaitinfj. I love coffee with milk (and sugar) and it coolly rhymes with INFJ, so there you go.
Then I joined INTPc (the yahoo group had been pretty much taken over by trolls because it was unmoderated). I used cafeaulaitinfj because I was used to it, but eventually found it unwieldy, so it was shortened to cafe at my request. I brought it with me from INTPc.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
