I was browsing the Zandronum forums and saw this topic there and thought it would be interesting to see the stories and (possible) funny stuff behind usernames here.

Nothing. Just thought of it on the spot. No it does not have anything to do with a girl, so fuck off with that theory (to those zan fags)

Mine's a nickname I picked up from some friends from a certain South American country, not that interesting at all...

meg·a·lith [meg-uh-lith]
noun
A stone of great size, especially in ancient construction work, as the Cyclopean masonry, or in prehistoric Neolithic remains, as dolmens or menhirs.

I went through a few screen names in times of yore, but they all had one thing in common: they all began with the letter M and contained 8 letters. When I wanted a new, more original name, I used the most unoriginal method possible and consulted the dictionary. I happened across the word "megalith" and I thought to myself "that's the best thing ever because I'm a teenage nerd" and I began using the name immediately.

Then, one fateful night a few weeks later, as I was signing in to IRC to partake in whatever passed for discussion at that time, I made a startling, wonderful mistake that changed the face of internetdom for all time: I pressed Y instead of I, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Mine actually has quite a bit of personal meaning behind it. My old handle on here was "partition36", which is my band's name, while I used "djharuko" elsewhere. When I came out as transgender I figured I should change my handle into something with some meaning behind it, so I looked at gender-neutral Japanese names. "Yuki" stood out since it means "snow", and I happen to love both snow and cold weather. Then since I love computers, I added "bit" at the end of it, but with the I changed to a 1 to symbolize my appreciation for hacker subculture. Thus, yukib1t (or sometimes, yuki_b1t)

Mine's obvious: My name's Xane, plus I added 123 just to do what people do when their username's taken: adding pointlessly random numbers to it!

When I joined DW I couldn't be bothered to download any source ports so I declared myself a vanilla purist instead.

Shortsightedness, in other words. I wish I just used my name now.

It's not a great story. Take the magic; the gathering card wall of blood. Think; armored, like the cells of blood are protected, hardened to attack (I'm a bio major, we think of things like this). Oh wait armoured looks more flavorful. And there you have it.

I chose printz so as not to stand out. I love how it looks like prince or prints, and that z just looks crazy.

Before I got it changed I based my username on the rumored code name of The Elder Scrolls 5 before it existed which was "Doomsfall" because I couldn't think of a good username at the time and loved to play Oblivion, after my disappointment of TES5 when it did come out I didn't want the username anymore and got it changed to what it is now which is the name of The Dark One in Quest for Glory IV.

I've considered it. Particulary around the times Johnny Rancid became 40oz and Doomhero85 became General Rainbow Bacon... But it's a bit late now. It's too confusing to have multiple aliases especially if you map.

I don't hate the name, it's just unrepresentative.

This is an old name I use because I still can, most people know me by my other nicknames

I joined a project many years ago called TRTCC and the main fellow (iirc who was obsessed with Twin Peaks) Maonth now Shaviro suggested I use this instead of UAC_Marine since they were both in competition I think

Years ago, I heard there was going to be a new doom game (Doom 3), so I was poking about for news and found Newdoom. While registering I kinda just came up with this thing and didn't think Id be stuck with it. So when I registered here I figured id use the same name...

A lot of cool names here. Fun thread idea.

I would've guessed it came from the Alien(s) movies, but maybe that would be AcidyBlood instead. ;)

I came up with my name when registering for some multi-player Warhammer game (my usual handle, JM_Zen, wasn't accepted, and even if I modified it, it didn't really fit). So I came up with 'schwerpunk' on the spot - thinking I was so clever, taking the 't' off the end. Turns out there's a German punk band by the same name. :P

I've been slowly registering and re-registering, under a different name, all over the internet, so if you see a newbie with a signature that says 'Formerly known as schwerpunk,' that's me.

EDIT: unless it isn't

My close family/friends call me Joshy Poshy, so it's Joshy for short. I used to be under the handle 'ghost' on newdoom forums, and when I signed up here, I didn't want to be the inferior ghost to GreyGhost (the name was taken anyway heh).

And guess what my real name is. Prizes for those who gets it right.

I chose three things that make absolutely no sense being together and made it my name because randomness is awesome. There, I explained it.
