It was a terrible band name I came up with for Guitar Hero 1...it's also a mildly offensive pun...

I took Eliezer from the bible a long time ago... ten years maybe... mix it with a personal name (Similar to a plague...), and "whala'!"... oh, and i almost forget, a little StarCraft tribute just to close the name...

It's what I used in the Gong Appreciation Society at Cambridge. Not as cool as Psi-Om, but my name's not Simon.

My mother was crazy enough to name me Geo. [...] I should also add that I dated a girl named Terra and it was spelled that way too. It was a rocky relationship.

As I understand it, in the original Hebrew, the number is actually 616.

Weird trivia that's useless in every conceivable situation, I'm full of it.

It's numerology.

 

616 corresponds to NERO CAESAR

666 corresponds to NERON CAESAR

 

Neron being the Greek form of Nero. Yeah, the Beast is really the much-maligned Roman emperor.

Shaggy2dope from the Insane Clown Posse and a fucked up Aussie screamo esque artist McBushpig. I hate both of these "artists" and I'm not a fan of screamo or the Insane Clown Posse, just thought the names sounded cool put together.

Rap is my favourite genre though, which these two people claim to produce, they are just terrible at it.

Name of some clan thing from Need For Speed: Carbon that I forgot about a long time ago, but somehow suddenly snapped in my mind while creating this account. My GOD Need For Speed plots are horrible!

"Yuki" is Japanese for "snow".  I winter immensely, especially when it's all snowy outside.  And since I speak some Japanese, it seemed fun to use the Japanese term for "snow".

 

"Raven" is because ravens are one of my favorite animals, and are important to me spiritually as well.  Plus there's one tattooed on my arm.

 

So.... YukiRaven.

I remember that your old name was "yukb1t", so what's the meaning of the old name?

Heh, but the older games had a better plot than the last ones, imo anyway :v .

 

I always liked Kenji's Bushido more btw, especially his RX-7. The Exotics in that game have atrocious handling.

From King Of Fighters - K' sounds like "key(K) dash" I changed it to qdash. "Q" is because I'm fan on Quake game series. Strange? Whatever. :D

"Yuki" is the same, but "b1t" (that's B-one-T, pronounced "bit" like "8 bits to a byte") was because I like computers.  One reason I changed it is because people kept thinking it was "Yuki B-L-T"

Actually, betraying myself here? I am thinking of changing my username to the most beautiful word in the English language.

 

(the) Ucalegon. Google its meaning because you won't believe me if I told you. Sadly it would probably go over many peoples head if I did change.

From Latin Ūcalegōn, from Ancient Greek Οὐκαλέγων (Oukalégōn). He was one of the Elders of Troy, whose house was set on fire by the Achaeans when they sacked the city. He is one of Priam's friends in the Iliad (3.148) and the destruction of his house is referred to in the Aeneid (2.312).

From https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ucalegon.

Yes but you have to scroll down to find the meaning of Ucalegon in English which is "A neighbor whose house is on fire or has burned down".  Beautiful even if the word is a bit dated.

But, it's too similar to @Ancalagon . Could cause confusion.

 

My advice: Keep the current name or find one that's not too similar to someone else's.

I like the word "Terminator" & Doom but someone is already using it here, so I changed it to Slovenia/Terminator. The_SloVinator

Since I live in that "nobody has ever heard of" country.

Like in 7th, 6th grade, I read about Percival the dude from medival times and all in class. Found it a rad name. Ready player one kinda convinced me to keep the name. In hindsight its a bad username and kinda ruined by the book but imma still keep it. Kept it running so far so

On average, I drink roughly 500 mg of caffeine a day. (For perspective, that's equal to about six 8 oz. cans of Red Bull.) That's why.

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.

 

Better than The Dark Tower? Dang! How does it compare to The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan? Regardless, I'll have to check it out, I love long epic series like these. Thanks. We now return to your regularly scheduled thread
