Why You Chose The Username You Did

Recommended Posts

2 hours ago, Man of Doom said:

I wanted to have an alternative name to my version of Doomguy, which will be featured in The Doomguy Reviews, a web review show that I've been planning to get off the ground for some time now, but real life has caused me to be too busy to even attempt working on said review show. In other words, my version of Doomguy has multiple names and monikers (The Man of Doom, That Guy with the Helmet, etc.)

 

But in regards as to where "Man of Doom" actually came from:
 

  Reveal hidden contents

*cough* DMCHOSHO *cough*

 

So what does he say in the show?  Does he just grunt and/or rip and tear the controller/keyboard?

Only when he deals with a legendarily shitty game. ;)

I'm pretty certain that my name is from a non canon Dragonball Z villein...

I had just started junior high and was slowly coming out of my edgy/so random phase. The original version of this name was Gothic Block, which I used for a game called Blockland (don't judge) and when I was making a Doomworld account two years later, I changed block to box since it was similar.

had an older sister who was a real bitch, so we called her a grouchbag.I thought it was humorous, hence my user name.

Sodaholic because I literally used to drink more soda than actual water everyday. I almost never drink soda now.

 

Blastfrog because I like Marathon 2 quite a bit. "Frog blast the vent core!"

The reference in FF7 to MBV and it's the name I've used in Quake 3/Quake Live the last 10 years.

oh... I am so sorry. I wanted to post this in a different thread... if you want you can delete these posts since they do not make sense here at all.

edit: sorry for all the inconvenience...

edit2: also I have not a single clue how I landed here, I was in a thread in doom general

edit3: to make at least one comment ontopic: termrork for t ER m ROR k so a combination of error and TMK for the first letters of my names (yeah I know quite odd, but I was about 8 years old when I came up with this. when I came up with error was even earlier, I did not even know what it means, I was just typing something as a nick into the keyboard, was around 6-7 years old).

This is the name I chose when I first made a Playstation screen/user name. It's literally what you think it is: I imagined Chewbaca from Stars Wars in a Ninja outfit 69ing. I know, real mature. ::shrugs::

I stole it from Gamespy Naminator when I was 13 and I regret it but I don't want to change it so people still know who I am.

 

Then again I have my shitposter title so people will likely still know.

I'm curious about your use of past tense here---'had an older sister'. Is that to say she is no longer around?

I created my name after the first doom shovel-ware i had ever played. The D!zone. Also because it was the name i had on an older obscure doom fourm that doesn't exist now.

What Doom forum?

Arlene was out of the DooM novels, but Private Arlene just doesn't have that nice ring to it. Major Arlene just flowed off the tongue better to me.

It's a dumb reason, but oh well

 

Back when i found out how to play online using Doom conector, my brother joked about how funny it would be if my username was "F*cker of Doom", being a dumb idiot kid, i found that hilarious so i used the name untill i was chased by an admin to change my name or be banned, so in a hurry i choose "DooM Marine", that later i shortened to DMMarine, and eventually into DMPhobos some weeks after because Phobos was the location of Ep1,a greek god, sounded cool and DMMarine was too generic

I cut "Mysterious" in my username, so it's more clear now and doesn't take so much space anymore. I decided to leave rest of my username, because it's pointless to change it when people already know me as Haruko and can't imagine other name on it.

"I like Doom and Godzilla. How can I convey these interests in a username?"

Seconds later:

"This sucks. Let's roll with it."

(I could change it now, but we'll see. Not committed to a new one yet.)

Mine stems from being stoned one night when I was much younger. Over the course of a few months, any time I said something stupid, one of my mates would chime in with something root vegetable related. It started of with variations of onions, then pickled onions, then scallions, and then one night I got "SCALLIANO!" and it stuck. This was back in 2000.

 

This is a story which will probably NOT be corroborated by the arsehole(s) on Twitter and/or XBox Live who stole it from me.

In highschool, maybe 11th or 12th grade, we were all called to the cafeteria to hear details about prom. Where, when, how much, etc. When the person told about the cost, they mentioned an option to use a payment plan. Their voice made the phrase sound a bit funny to my friends and I and it became kind of an in joke. I guess it's kind of cruel, because we were essentially making fun of this person and how they said payment plan. I started using it as my name shortly thereafter. 

 

Prior to that, playing a lot of Counter Strike, I had various names such as test bear, raven bane, meat puppet, and apophenium. Going back all the way to my GameFAQs days when I used to post as swordblaster. I don't miss any of those names.

Aw, so not related to my favourite UT'99 map? *ducks!*

 

As of my own, the most lame story you can imagine.

First email account 20 years ago. Need to come up with a login.

Ok, how about initials. Nope, too short. So padded it up with whatever - q happens to be first in the row.

(and a couple of years later found out it's used as a callsign of a Tennessee AM radio station...)

Well, this is kind of embarassing, but I got my username from a simpsons episode I watched a reeeeeaaaaallllllllllly long time ago. It was the one where bart becomes a pop star, you know "nioj eht yvan", and there was character named Lt.Smash, and I thought the name was neat (I was in grade 3 iirc), but didn't want to just use it as-is so I came up with Lt.Blam ('cause explosions are better than blunt force trauma) , and it's just kinda stuck with me. I guess it was idea stockholm syndrome.
