How did you come up with your username?

Recommended Posts

Quoting myself from the past:

Some time ago, I was getting tired of getting that "This username already exists" message, so I started thinking about a name, but nothing came to my mind. I decided to search for weird words in English, and I found "kvell" which means "to feel happy and proud". I added "er" at the end just to add something. And I added caps 'cause why not.

 

Come to think of it, the er is used for a person that makes an action (like play - player) so it sounds like "the one that feels happy and proud". Proud of what?? I didn't think about that at the time, but whatever, at least there aren't 100 people with the same name as me anymore.

Primarily to update my previous username that is too lame to mention. Also I like silver (as in the element) and thought it would be a clever name.

Eris comes from the dwarf planet, and I don't remember why it's falling but there we ago. It's been in use for 7 years, but nowadays it's only used in connection to Doom - I use my real name for music and 'Thorsten' in the few other places I can be found.

 

thorsten actually goes back a few years too, my friends haven't called me by my actual name since :)

Not my first username, but I was big in TF2 and played music regularly in-game. So it was first 'Eric is currently playing music' then 'Eric the Sandvich'.

I also like TF2, too.

Maybe Eris was falling because you thought about Pluto?

Mine is the simple combination of my second name with the second name of my girlfriend, and the X is because I like how it sounds, it reminds me of a T rex, however I have the disadvantage that in multiplayer, people usually call me with'' Ani ''... and it does not sound very masculine to be said. Haha. Oh, and the 1009 is a totally random number.

I don't even know, it prolly dates when I was fascinated by Mayhem, so I ended up naming all my accounts with the band's name. I should have changed it a long time ago by now ...

And... A Cacodemon is probably the cuttest demon in classic doom.

Started as CARRiON+FLOWER, which is a real flower that smells of deceased bodies. I found it morbidly beautiful. I shortened it to just CARRiON, because I often feel like rotten decaying flesh anyways. Especially when the insomnia hits.

 

Sometimes I'll make it CARRiON-XCII, the number has significance to me.

 

E: At one point I thought about Muerte+Perro

It's something from the depths of childhood ...

 

Initially, I came up with the name "Storm", for naming profiles in various games. When it first appeared, I do not remember ... At that time, on my first computer with 3 GB HDD and 16 MB of RAM (at my father's workplace), besides my first games there was a large collection of music. These were tracks named MUSIK.01.mp3 ... 02 ... 03 etc. Basically, these were tracks in the genre of disco or pop from the 80's and 90's. There were no tags in the files (and at that time I did not know what it was) because I recognized the songs by ear. One song from the collection stood out against the others and made me listen to myself over and over again - MUSIK.77. But I did not know what it's called then. Already much later I find out that this is "Scorpions - Wind Of Change".


When we had the first home computer (not that old), I called my first profile as Storm.77 ... Later, when I first met Painkiller, I noticed the logo "Dreamcatcher" on the intro and thought: "Hmm ... this it would sound interesting. " So there was StormCatcher.77.


Already in the "Internet age" (this is 2011 :3) I found out that this word is not deprived of meaning... and title "Storm Catcher" even carries a one movie ... But this is all. For me now this name is just a cool anglicism...

Began as Cyanosis in late 2010, changed to cyan0s1s sometime after 2014. The latter's significance was to make it easier to find me on the internet (and not confuse me for another Cyanosis), it also helped if the previous title had been taken. It holds two personal associations regarding the numbers; Ichi from Ichi the Killer, and the Eagle's race number from Carmageddon II. The overall inspiration for the name was an opposite reaction to my previous long-running handle, BurningCadavre, which signified heat and the color red, Cyanosis would embody cold and the color blue. Its real-life association also just makes it much more unpleasant and reflected a drastic shift in my personality and the events occurring in my life at the time.

Th Bridgeburners are the elite military squad that a large part of The Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. It is the most convoluted, expansive, dark, epic fantasy series every written (IMO). 10 books (8000ish pages) of jaw dropping magnificence. Better than the Dark Tower series and I'm a Steven King fan boy.

 

A friend and I were obsessed with the number 5.6 when I was younger (we were/are weird) so that's where the 56 comes from. I only use this when my name is already taken which happens more often than I would have thought.

The Space Twins were founded in 1993 by Weezer guitarist Brian Bell and, his then girlfriend, Susan Fox. Initially, the band was a small project in which the two would dress up in Star Trek-style outfits with pipe-cleaner antennae, playing silly songs at kid's birthday parties. The duo even had nicknames for one other: SpaceHelmet and Moonboot.

Using Gato303 on many of my artwork sites.

Comes from "Cat" in spanish, I love cats

When talking about Doom or Quake I changed for Gato606

6 for the number of the beast, and 606, cause 666 is too mainstream XD

Decided to take a nickname of protagonist of famous 3D game from ID Software (you must know if you're a fan of Doom) and add a number 34 (why 34? I don't want to say).

I got mine from a character in Quest For Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness (an old point and click adventure game from 1993 which I really love) who was supposed to be some sort of Cthulhu inspired being from another dimension who wields the power of darkness, and it got trapped and petrified between dimensions after an unsuccessful summoning.

After my main forum closed permanently (after 9yrs) I looked for another name I could use for the forums I spend my time on, one that I won't just keep changing "whenever I'm in the mood", as is usually the case with the avatars. That name was connected to that place so it wouldn't have made any sense to keep on using it.

 

And so this name popped up in my mind, which is also the name of a cartoon character that I like (though I wouldn't actually go as far as count him among my favorites) and it has some other, personal meaning to me, and I've been using it ever since.
