So where does your username come from?

A better question is how the hell do you pronounce my username?

 

Answers on a postcard!

I just say it like the word "baúl" in Spanish, only with a longer "u" pronunciation

 

(This is how it's pronounced, and the word means trunk)

I had the same idea, throw in a link to the story while also dropping a friendly hint that a massive thread already exists for this.

 

But Frank Zappa beat me to it with his expertise in subtlety.

 

Edit: It would really help if I checked when the thread was made. I mistook this for another new thread by someone else and didn't realise it was the same one I had already posted in a week or so ago. Don't mind me, I'm just suffering from an acute case of stupidity. 

 

I won't change the original comment above the edit though, maybe someone will get a laugh from it.

I love Mobile suit Gundam universe and decided to name myself after one of the mobile suit (humaniod tanks) of the enemy faction known as Zeon.
Zaku II kai was an advanced upgrade of an already aging mobile suit line, the legendary Zaku II, that carried Zeon throughout the One year war and was deployed as a last ditch effort in order to reinforce Zeon´s forces.

If you want to know more about the legendary Zaku II or Gundam universe, let me reffer you to these two helpfull videos:

 

 

and another video about Gundam (UC) as a whole:

I chose this name because I like Linux, and I am good at using it. I chose 1992 because it's when the Commodore Amiga 1200, a great computer, came out. Nothing too crazy for my name.

PSX is apparently a codename for the Sony PlayStation. And I am lifelong Doom fan, but especially of Doom on the PlayStation 1.

I love synthwave, but I needed an extra word to have a proper name

 

Also I love discovering constantly - new things to be precise, but still like a scout

I found Proximity Mine on Wiki Weapon list (searching for guns for spriting reasons), then put it in a Blender, add 2 tablespoons of coolness and a pinch of salt and then mix it well and there, a Proxmin is born!

What's the best first post ever? Enquiring minds want to know.

@Gokuma: Yes, you're correct. That was the best first post ever. Incredibly informative/helpful, and the poster is just so unassuming. Very cool.

When I was a kid, I tried to sign up an account with the name "Gustavo", but it was obviously already taken. YouTube prepped for me a number of suggestions, each peppered with a few numbers on the end, and in light with the slight bias toward rounded numbers that I used to have, I picked this one.

I've always been interested in the ancient mythologies of the world, though I'm not a man of faith myself. I also wanted a username that represented where I'm from, without being too lame.

This username comes from a character on our greatest epic poem, Os Lusíadas (The Lusiads) by Luís Vaz de Camões.

my username came from not wanting to name my doomworld account the same name as my youtube channel (hunting the gaming huntsinger   P.S i have renamed my YouTube to the bmfg) so i was thinking of some doom related stuff then KABOOM it came into my head. how about instead of big fucking gun maybe big motherfucking gun would sound cooler. so then i made my doomworld account then

When I made my DW account Theperson was a shortened "NerdManPerson" which was my OG username for twitter/reddit/discord/blah blah.
Last year I rebranded my usernames as Mememind and I dont know how to change my DW name.

Mememind was a temporary shitpost of the gravemind from Halo 2 but it stuck.

In second grade my class was writing plays. I chose to be in a group with 2 girls in my class. One day while we were writing (it was a really cute play, actually. It was in March so we had a play on a lion and a lamb and how the 2 seasons of winter and spring were different but could still get along) and one of the girls in my group started to call themselves potato. I don't know why we found it hysterical, but we did. She then called the other person in the group Doughnut and she was having difficulty coming up with a food-related nickname for me, so instead of creating a new food-related nickname, she just took her name, potato, and added chip at the end. I went by Potato Chip for the rest of the year. 

Fast forward to 3rd grade. I'm now playing my first and only year of baseball. I was at practice one day and the coach asked me if I had a nickname. I told him it was potato chip and he told me it was the worst nickname ever. He referred to me as Chip for the rest of practice, and I started using it as a username on websites.

When I was about 14/15 years old there was a music-related forum I used to be active on where I had the name DT-PT, which was just the abbreviation for my two favourite bands at the time. After a little while (like a few months or so) I decided it was a really lame thing to have as a username and was desperate to change it, so I just came up with the name DisgruntledPorcupine on the spot and requested the moderators change my moniker to that. I still don't think it's the best name but I've been using it for over 10 years now, so I guess it's just my identity at this point haha.
