Anthos = From Greek derivative of the word flower or flowering (my last name = Flowers). I was a bio major at the time I came up with this and we happened to be studying a creature called anthozoa, which means flowering animal. So, there ya go.
I ran out of time before I could post mine. I was at work and wasn't paying enough attention to the clock, so after I typed the opening I looked down and saw it was time to log back into the phones. Figured I would just add it later. And don't worry, no matter what scientific explanation for your name you come up with, you'll always remind me of the Warlock Anthos from the old Scooby-Doo cartoons
Ok, as for my name. I had been using the name Dragon Shadow (which by the way was the name of a comic book character I made up when I was younger and has slowly evolved into Drakkoon Shao which is my SWG name, but that's another story) and thought it was too generic. So while playing "Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight" my freshman year at Rolla I set about coming up with a new name.
I had been obsessed with flight from a very young age and for a long time my goal was to fly jets in the Air Force. Even though I had recently come to the realization that me + the military would be a bad idea because would probably just end up getting court marshalled or something, I still wanted to fly one day. Because of this I picked Pilot as a base and began searching for something to add to it, to distinguish it. BurnPilot was one of the first names I came up with and even though I tried to come up with something better, it just felt right and stuck. I have used it as my primary game name to this day.
