Hrm, I've had a lot of pseudonyms since I went on line in 1988-89. Originally I was "Kitty" and then that one morphed into "Happy Spatula" so I could be anonymous on a not-to-be-mentioned old usenet group
When I started gaming in 1992, I was simply "Spat". Since we couldn't delete characters at that time and I unknowingly rolled the WORST stats in the world for that character, I created a new character and became Roan, the Ranger who loved horses.
Actually, I was known as "Roan the Duh, Idiot Savant of the Play Doh People", but that's another story
I was also Pez for a short time, on Black Knight's Realm DIKU and then on the alpha version of Sojourn DikuMUD. When Sojourn went beta and was opened to the public, I became Mystra, the Goddess of Magic. My mortal was Roan, of course.
So, since 1993 I've been Mystra and Roan. I no longer use Mystra, just Roan, and that's me
As for the name: I love horses, natch. My hair, although it has darkened over the years, has always been reddish in color. Now that it's getting peppered with grey here and there, the name is even more apt
