Username Origins

95 posts in this topic

It's simple. Explain the origins and reason for your chosen username on here. For example, my username was one of the various names I've come up with for my internet review show (which doesn't exist...yet), and comes from the Pokémon game, Pokémon LeafGreen. I was tempted to use one of my other reviewer names, but I just figured LeafyGreenDude was good enough.

Well this seems like a lot of fun. I'll have a go at it. Well Juan is my real name. The helpless part comes from whenever I play with friends, I always seem to end up in terrible situations that I miraculously make it out of in a lot of games.

'Scout' is the name of an RP character I created that was based closely on my younger self.   The profile picture on the left is a picture of that character. If you go to my profile, you can see a larger image of the full character picture in the background.

I started using this name as a joke/smurf name back in the CS 1.6 days. Originally it was "Nisses Fluffboll" and I used it to avoid being recognized on the servers I frequented when I just wanted to play and not chat with people. It however stuck when everyone began calling me this in game as well as in real life :)

Well, when I first started using the internet at about 10 or 11, I used to go by Spike because for some reason I spiked my hair at that time. This usually resulted in usernames like Spike453627364673 or whatever the hell I had to slap on the end of Spike as it was rather common.

Having a crap-ton of numbers on the end of my name began to really bug me, but by that point I'd been using spike so long I still wanted to use it in some way because it was familiar.

 

So, I came up with IDSpike or InstantDeathSpike. It's less generic and a nod to those lovely parts of video games where you slam your head on a pointy metal object and suddenly realize that maybe it wasn't the best idea.

My name came from the desire to have a username without numbers that I liked. I'm not creative so naming stuff is difficult for me. I eventually settled on this because i thought it sounded kind of decent. It's stupid, but I like it, kinda (though if I ever think of a better name I'll gladly change it). The Reclaimed part comes from Halo, one of Master Chief's nicknames is "The Reclaimer", and Havok is a Marvel superhero, Cyclop's brother. So I mashed them together to create this. It's not the best, but what can you do?

I made zykone up some day and then just stuck with it, after all I needed a western username that was not Osaka. One day I discovered Zykone was taken (shock horror) so I added fluffy because of a DnD game where I was turned in to an animal. My japanese username (Osaka) is from Azumanga Daioh and was/is my nickname (among friends) in real life. Pretty much it! :D

GoodOldSmurf is from back when i played Ace Online :P

 

kinda took Smurf (not knowing Schtrumph was Smurf in english) and so i liked Smurf cuz it sounded like Surf (i was "Surfing" in PvP wars between players and raping all with constant aggressivity)

 

so i went with Smurf but then i figured out later what it meant, since i love greenish lil slime balls with catfaces, i adopted the "character"

 

then GoodOld came from the fact i played Ace Online for years and twice it happened where i went back to AO after a big break and no one knew about me but i did know alot about the game :P

 

so it was "Good Old Smurf" ^_^

I have this username for years now.

I named myself Draguno, because I wanted to name myself Dragon in the past. Since that was a very uncreative username, I thought of Dragoon, but that wasn't perfect either. Then I chose Draguno.

I had to name myself DragunoSXE for PSN because I couldn't name myself Draguno for some reason. The SXE stands for my straight-edge lifestyle.

Mine comes from SW:KOTOR, I was started my veery first mmo character on Final Fantasy XI, I thought all the male looked stupid so i made a female character, named her Bastilla (added an L in the name on purpose, looks better i thought) played FFXI for many years and the name stuck. Overtime it was shorten to just Bast and when SW: TOR came around I knew that the real Bastila would be in it in some way so i started just using Bast. I add the number 50 when its needed for high traffic communities, its the number of my football jersey back when i played.

Dyzzles originated from my original username, which was Dyzzy. I ended up with 'Dyzzles' through a perfectly random convo we had about a year or two ago. Dyzzy is something I came up with when I was 5... At the time, I thought it was ''cool'' to replace the 'i' with 'y'.

My name originates from this talk. Shadows, America, Bikes. Pushing off bikes, stealing. Shadow Stealer. I was bored and it was years ago and I haven't thought of anything else since.
