Because the other choice was likely along the lines of Aurora McAuroraface.

Quote
Before you assume Steve is named after Professor Hawking or the theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg, the Facebook group Alberta Aurora Chasers were instead inspired by a scene in the animated movie Over the Hedge, in which one of the characters gives a hedge that name to make it seem less scary.

Because before they discovered it, it had already blocked them on twitter.

I legitimately chortled.

I never got Steve Shives, he seems really angry and prone to strawmanning (ie "all my opposition are nazis") and starting dumb youtube drama with other blowhards just because he disagrees on the things they get all blowhard-y over.

Also damn you Contrarian for getting me off-topic like this.
