But your name isn't even Lee. What's so nifty about it anyway?

Well, folks, sorry to disappoint, but it actually has nothing to do with the name Lee nor its niftiness. Here's the story:

I was in, let's say sixth grade, and I was about to embark on a quest beyond words. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was a relatively new release on the SNES and I couldn't wait to get my paws on it. I started a new file, but I had to think about what I should name the character. I could have gone with Link, but I wanted something original. I brainstormed and finally came up with Nifty.

Now you might be saying, Alfred, Nifty is an adjective, not a propper noun. You must be retarded to name a person an adjective. Well, friend, if people have names like Hope, Natural, Crystal, and Charisma, then why not Nifty? Besides, Nifty is a nifty name.

So now you're thinking, I really don't care that much. Why are you going on about nothing? Well, I'll tell you where the Lee came from in Nifty Lee. After naming my character Nifty, I starting using the adjective nifty. Eventually, I degraded nifty into an adverb: niftily. Yeah, you just read it and thought: Wow! Niftily sounds a whole lot like Nifty Lee! Maybe that's how it came about! You would be absolutely correct to assume so.

And thus ends the story of Nifty Lee...
