Your Username

post #1 of 112
Thread Starter 
I'd like to start a thread where you can explain your username. There are many times I wonder, why that name? Not to pick on any one person, but I have to ask, "DavidFehretysBike"? That is an interesting one...

I guess I should start but I think mine is pretty self-explanatory... I'm a University of Kansas Jayhawk, the 23 got added a long time ago because jhawker became a pretty popular username across the internet. So, the 23rd is my birthday. Haven't had a "used" username yet.

Re: Your Username

I googled "cool names", found Zephyr, which I used initially, but shortened it by two letters. Hardly original, but it's stuck with me for many years now. Used it mostly for online gaming in the beginning.

Re: Your Username

In high school I was addicted to oakleys. I almost had a pair for everyday of the week(5). I always wore a different pair on the golf course and earned the nickname "shades". Then some random numbers that yahoo threw in a long time ago for email.

Re: Your Username

Nuck has been my nickname for almost 20 years. I use the 81 since it's my birth year and it keeps me from getting "Username already used"

Re: Your Username

Made up the name "zegamorphos" for a MUD (text-based precursor to the MMORPGs of today) because it sounded good at the time (15 years ago). It was a bit long, though, so I shortened it, and zeg is a short nick that's usually available.

TIE Fighter, Counter-Strike, Medal of Honor...and so on :P Use it for most things, like my 360 gamertag is TAD Dark Prince, same with a few emails..etc, just something that stuck. Kinda funny that I also didn't realize it meant satan hahahaha.

Re: Your Username

Mine comes from a movie called Suicide Kings. Christopher Walken is in it as a mafia boss. At one point in the movie, he's calling out all the guys that kidnapped him, and he says one of the guys is a control freak... then says no, you're a control junkie. It pretty much fit me perfect because I have to try to be in control all of the time, so I first used that name as my XBL gamertag, and it stuck.

And it's cool to see another Pink Floyd fan on here too!
