So where does your username come from?

Recommended Posts

When I was a child, playing with my older brother, he taught me a bit of Greek mythology, he showed me the name of Gaia and although I didn't even know from where the name was, I liked the name a lot and from there along with the game of Illusion of Gaia, it is Why I kept this name ;P.

 

And the 74 simply because it is my favorite number, the reason? I just thought it looked nice, yes, i was a very weird kid

I got my username from an image of this guy I found years ago, I find it cool and I still do to this day. This also used to be my profile pic at Doomworld when I first joined.

My username is... well, a song title from Die Krupps' album "III - Odyssey of the Mind".

 

I'm using it since, ugh... don't know, 23 years?

Mine, well...  Namco is a games developer known for games such as the Ridge Racer series which i'm a big big fan of, so...

 

The "JR" part was made up for when the original "namco" nickname is already taken which seems to be pretty vulgar :P

My username actually comes from an old unfinished space opera novel of mine. Child me wanted the main villain's title to be a step above emperor or dictator or whatever. So I decided to combine 'Omni' (all) with 'arch' (roughly translates as 'ruler'). Bingo! Now I had an intimidating title for the leader of the malign Assimilator Horde / Collective / Ascendancy / Zaratyr Empire (I rewrote that manuscript a lot).

 

Later, when I decided to join a popular sci-fi / fantasy forum called Spacebattles.com, Omniarch seemed like a good enough internet handle, since my previous one (Empire) had already been taken, and it has stuck around ever since.

 

Yes, I did have delusional dictatorial fantasies as a child. How did you know?

Made it up when I was a kid, as a (bad) pun on Judge Dredd.

I've been using it ever since, out of sheer inertia.

It was based on a drunken conversation at a party where I said I wanted my body to be put into orbit after I die - becoming a cosmic inconvenience... or orbiting space garbage.

I was issued my mobile suit at fighting age of 14 at A Baoa Qu. After surviving the brutal battle that killed most of my friends and enduring our humiliating defeat at the hands of Federation, I´ve been traveling with other Zeon Remnants.

Our current leader Haman Karn has shown to be a competent leader and I´m sure with her at the helm, we are going to beat Fedies once and for all and nothing bad will ever happen to us again.

 

Sieg Zeon!

My username comes from playing a prank on my drunken elder brother. I have told this story before but I'll toss in a shorter version of it here.

 

I had been away from Doom for a number of years, came back last year and got into a bit of mapping. I immediately decided I would make a map to annoy my elder brother (who's 51 by the way). I slapped together a half arsed map and messed around in decorate to make a double-scale Revenant that could only punch, was lightning fast and killed you in 1 slap. I also gave it a ridiculous amount of health.

 

I then let my brother play it while he was drunk, under the guise of "test this map for me, tell me what you think I should improve". It was just square block rooms linked to more square rooms, all filled with zombiemen. It was intended to lull him into thinking it was crap and piss easy.

 

He grumbled throughout telling me it was bland and too easy, followed by insults like "did you even try?". Then he got to the final room and met the chittering irritant I had created. It towered over him and he barely had time to register wtf was going on before it was in his face.

 

I'll give him his due though, he refused to give up no matter how many times it killed him in 1 slap. The room was big, but this thing was fast. It's why I disabled its ranged attack, otherwise there would be no humour to it.

 

At one point he was running around convinced he needed to activate something to kill it. He perished many times to the mighty slap of death, trying in vein to hug walls for a hidden switch/area. It went on for about 15 minutes before he figured out the real reason I was in stitch's laughing. Probably because he was drunk.

 

The only mistake I made was not adding the Benny Hill theme tune to the fight. You know, for maximum effect.

 

The name of this Revenant was Final Verdict.

OK, strap in, this is gonna be weird.

So back when I was like 3-4, I had a diaper as my sleeping buddy. (No, nothing extraordinary, just a white piece of cloth but it was hella comfy to chew.) I especially liked the corner of it. It had some kind of lining just to prevent it from unraveling or something. And I called it Csücskös, meaning cornery... Csücsök means corner, but in an informal way. (In Hungarian that is, if you are wondering) Yeah, so it stuck. When I was 7, my dad made me an account in a text game they were playing with my brother. I was so excited, I too wanted to play. So he asked me what should be the name of my character. I said Csücskös because... I had no better idea. Turned out, no accents were allowed in that game (it was long time ago, OK? :D) so we settled on Csucskos. And since than I use that as my name everywhere. It has no real meaning and it annoys the hell out of everyone, not knowing how to even pronounce it. I love it ;)

Oh, I later realized Csücskös means "tough" but only in some rural dialect so it is another reason not to change it.

Already answered in this thread:

 

But people on the FCT Chillax server started calling me "porn hub sofa" so I think I'll have to bug the mods for a name change soon..

This beats my story by a long shot. I think this may even be the crowning champion of this thread.

 

I stand in awe, pure gold. I was laughing for 60 seconds straight.

Crazy that I never though of the word "arroba" after reading your username multiple times

Why did you have to add that last part....oldest trick in the book and I always fall for it. Damn my inquisitive brain.

 

You can't ask me not to question it and expect the matter to be settled.

 

Explain, out with it man.

I actually went through usernames a plenty, and one day I was depressed as hell when I thought:
"okay i need to stop changing names, pick one and stick with it to the end"

A few... Mental issues later, I went with what I knew, and what y'all know now.

I've told it before in the same thread magicsofa linked, I believe, but there is no harm in telling it again. I chose it a long time ago for a mobile game, and it just became my standard user name from then on. And yes, its an acronym! Do any of you want to take a guess?

Back in the day when i used to play Minecraft on XBOX 360 i required a Microsoft account to play. My accounts was constantly getting hacked or blocked (even today i don't understand why), every time i created a new account Microsoft generated variations of my name.

But at a point Microsoft couldn't make more so it suggested me to create a random one. And there it was: "GratefulName"

 

(My old name was TheXProGamer :P)

Quite simple, I was setting up an account in my iPhone 5 (Yes, an iPhone 5), and the phone asked me about my name, and I just wrote the first thing that came to my mind, which was Lol 6. I liked it so much that it ended up being my online name.

 

It was like 6 years ago

 

Little edit: In reality, the name is :[Lol 6]:, and I used to use it like that, but I had to change it here because it would make the notification system go wild. And I didn't used a pfp of  L from death note until... like a month ago? I have no idea.

Edited by Lol 6

I was playing Minecraft in 2013 with industrial mods and knew that gold is bad material for mining tools and I wondered: "if a silver pickaxe existed, could it be more powerful than golden one?". And in the same timeline I was playing Terraria 1.1.2 and most of the time before I got Shadow Armor(btw, it or the Crimson one, is my primary armor in early hardmode just because it looks cool), I was wearing full Silver set including silver pickaxe. Thus I nicknamed myself SilverMiner for Minecraft and then - for Doom. (In Terraria I still use the older names like what I had for TrackMania)
