What does your username mean?

I came up with it when I first joined the Doom community on the now dead skulltag forums which was back in 2010

Just two words put together for no particular reason.

oh, come off it. You don't produce this kind of loaded username for "no particular reason". If anything else, you're insulting dragon-lore and by extension fantasy-lore in all its reaches with this trite explication of your excrepable name. Come on, give us something we can sink our teeth into.

Hellbent.

[...] Mine just refers to this.

I think Makemake would be a great username.

I am the Don of Mechas.

DonMechas would be a cool name.

BTW, I think Sephiroth has the coolest custom title:

Sephiroth

I wish I had a cool custom title. ... *sigh*

[...] I dislike my username terribly, though some don't want me to change it because they're all used to it, and others tell me that it's fine.

Maybe in time, I'll be able to finally come up with something that doesn't suck near as much but people can still identify me with. Maybe.

I would strongly suggest changing it to LightBringer. Just my $0.02.

I live in Spain.
My favorite animals are wolves.
Lobo is Wolf in Spanish, so there you go!

When I can't use lobo as my nick I use lobo_eire.
Lobo (see above)
Eire is Ireland in Irish and I am Irish, so...




Wulf and Eadwacer translated

It is to my people as if someone gave them a gift.
They want to kill him, if he comes with a troop.
It is different for us.
Wulf is on one island I on another.
That island, surrounded by fens, is secure.
There on the island are bloodthirsty men.
They want to kill him, if he comes with a troop.
It is different for us.
I thought of my Wulf with far-wandering hopes,
Whenever it was rainy weather, and I sat tearfully,
Whenever the warrior bold in battle encompassed me with his arms.
To me it was pleasure in that, it was also painful.
Wulf, my Wulf, my hopes for you have caused
My sickness, your infrequent visits,
A mourning spirit, not at all a lack of food.
Do you hear, Eadwacer? A wolf is carrying
our wretched whelp to the forest,
that one easily sunders which was never united:
our song together.

Here's an avatar if anyone wants to use it:

@essel: huh? Get the lawn in place post haste! (what?)

Also, I think your title would be better if it read: Cumulonimbus Raining Antagonistic Posting as it makes for a fine Acronym. :p

I just can't get enough sod, you see. You might call me a sodaholic.

My name always have nearly same sequence as of how it is.

Mithral - Back when I played the hell out of Balders Gate: Dark Alliance, I always manage to get myself a Icy Burst Mithral Longsword, so it kinda stuck with me.

Everything after Mithral changes, whether be Link (Link from LoZ or a chain link), or Demon.

-And before you fancy yourself an argument on spelling of Mithral, mind you Mithral part of my name is DIRECTLY from the series, not Runescape/Final Fantasy's version of Mythrill / Mithril.-

My username here is actually my trademark. Which is a combination of my profession (Software Engineering: the fancy version of 'writing code') and a reference to the Doom Imp, because I like Doom. Maybe I shouldn't have used my trademark as my username, because now I find it a bit odd. I more often go by the nickname 'klapstoelpiloot', which is just a funny combination of dutch words. The direct translation is 'foldable chair pilot' and doesn't sound that good in english.

Obsidian: a volcanic glass similar in composition to granite, usually dark but transparent in thin pieces, and having a good conchoidal fracture.

In all seriousness, the word Obsidian has been flitting around my head for a while now: for some reason I just feel a sort of affinity to the word. Maybe it reflects my personality.

Is your name used as a brand? Is it like CodeImp™?

Well my username means Doomguy of the third millennium. Meaning 2001-3000 AD.

Shouldn't that be 2000-2999 AD.?

Heh. I think it was something about diablo 2 that brought me to it. I don't really recall details though. *sigh*

Thanks to this thread I answered this question correctly:

31. The 2006 demotion of Pluto to the status of dwarf planet was precipitated by the discovery of what object orbiting beyond Pluto, believed to be 27 percent more massive than Pluto and named for the Greek goddess of strife and discord?
