Origin of your username

^topic

I am inherently amused every time the announcer says "QUAD DAMAGGGGE" in Quake III, so I spelled it funny and made it my username.

And you?

There was a period of time where I liked to put Es on the end of everything and Bashe was a result of of this.

You could also say Bashe is just an evolution of my username at gamepro.com, "Basherman120." It's gone now...

Co and Mic are the first syllables of my first and middle name, and lez is a random assortment of letters thrown at the end.

I did not know what username to enter in other games (Quake 2, Duke Nukem) so I entered “ducon”, something like “sucker” in french.

My penchant for using the Nailgun in the original Quake, prompting an observing friend to call me a "Nailgunner".

It was a tough choice between this and "Ultra Omega Death Killer Zombie 666".

My old username was a company name my brother-in-law thought up. It sounded half technical and half like a drug reference.

Bucket, on the other hand, needs no explanation.

I have an shitty nick that doesn't mean anything, other than that I am an dutch mapper from holland:)
O and my english does suck a bit "devill" with two LL's if you know what I mean.
If an mod reads this I don't mind if you remove the extra "L" :)

[Edit]Thanks for changing my nick name looks much better this way.

My first ever forum name was The Dark Lord of the Dumples. This originates from me trying to find a username and just watching that episode of Strong Bad with the Dumples in it.

So yeah, that's the origin of my name.

In the second board I signed up for (same one but it moved), my full name was too long, so I decided to go by the abbreviated version of the name, "DLD". My friend said something like: "Add something cool to each end like -_ and _- or whatever", so there you have it. -_DLD_-.

When I started doing DJ mixes and writing more Trance music, I decided to give myself a "DJ" name. Given my interest in Japan, I decided to use a Japanese name that had some sort of meaning. I wanted to do "only child", but my Google searching at the time only turned up "first child". I figured it was close enough, so I chose that, which was "Haruko".

It didn't hit me at the time that anything ending in -ko was a female name. It only did a few months later after I had been using it.

Then in Japanese class, we learned how to say the different seasons. "Haru" is for "spring". Again, this doesn't work, as I was born in December. But, "Fuyuko" sounded even more feminine than "Haruko", so I just kept it the same.

In Japan, alot of people thought that "Haruko" was my girlfriend...

This seems to be a good place to clear things up about my name.
It has no origins, disney wise or arabaic.
It is simply something that popped into my head that sounded good. It stuck.
Now enough of this Jafar and Jihad sillyness. :P

It is what everyone calls me. See when I wrote J Anderson on my rugby kit it was missing the '.'

'Lol ur name is Janderson Lololloolol'
'no, ur gay'

And eventually it grew on me.

At what point did you drop the "gay" from the end? :)

My last name is Cooper. When you're last name's Cooper, everyone's going to call you 'Coop' no matter what your first name is; it could be freaking SuperMan and no one's going to give a shit. Anyway, someone added the 'ville' to the end of my name one day and I decided from that day on, I would make my username to just about everywhere Coopersville. It was originally Cooper's Ville, but a lot of places don't like the oppostrophe, or the space-- and once I grew a half a brain I learnt that's not how it's suppose to be spelt in the first place.

Mine came from a story I posted here a while back. Also, I recently found out that it's a bands name, too. They aren't bad, either.
