What's with your username?

I don’t get it.

Give an explanation in this thread.

My explanation:
I joined this site after I purchased Banjo-Kazooie (again) for my N64. Captain Blubber was my favourite character as a small child and continues to be to this day.

Oh, and if you’re one of those cool kids who uses their real name, explain why you aren’t creative enough to have a sweet-ass username.

Its my brazilian football name.

Nov 09, 2009 at 05:45PM EST

I got my username from my youtube account. I was going to have it called Joefilms, but I mispelled films so it was Joeflims. It wasn’t taken, so I just used it. Now, it is the name for all my web accounts.

Nov 09, 2009 at 05:51PM EST

I use my real name because I believe in honesty. That’s all there is to know, really. Though, there have only been two sites not meant for communication purposes where I have revealed my real name, one of them being this site. I have several pen names to choose from, but I decided to stick to my real name. Also, I could have changed it, but this site has proven itself to be trustworthy enough for me to have no need to.

I never go by my real name on the internet.

On the internet you can be anyone, a tough guy, a woman or if you work in the FBI a 10 year old girl. Going by my real name has always seemed really lame, that’s why I haven’t joined social networking sites. Also I’ve stopped going by the same username on different sites. Partly because I have so many awesome username ideas and because it makes me feel untraceable.

But that’s just me.

I believe my login name is still TOTAL LEE (which is my adopted pen name), even though username shows up as “brad kim,” which would be my “real name” in English.

Nov 09, 2009 at 06:23PM EST

Mine’s just a generic username I thought of when I needed one. I haven’t changed it in several years because I’m too lazy/not creative enough to think of another.

Nov 09, 2009 at 06:28PM EST

I came up with my username about five years ago. Not sure how or why. It just somehow stuck with me.

Nov 09, 2009 at 06:48PM EST

Blah was just… well blah. I just thought it up a few years ago in the toilet. O.o

Nov 09, 2009 at 06:53PM EST

I am a Pterodactyl, and when I get a mic, I will show all of you why.

On the other hand, my real name is laaaame.

Nov 09, 2009 at 08:03PM EST

I use my full name because I typed it into the wrong box when signing up. My name should have been Aloranor.

Nov 09, 2009 at 08:57PM EST

@ Cooper

LOL! Well, at least you’re honest about it. Still though, it is funny!

Nov 09, 2009 at 08:59PM EST

There are two parts to my username

I got B& from Neopets when I was 10. My username was mtallmen, so when I signed up again it gave me a random number, so my username was mtallmen184

The second part is when I got B& from Runescape when I was 11. When I signed up again, I put an underscore between mtallmen and 184, giving me mtallmen_184

Nov 09, 2009 at 09:10PM EST

felix is my name. and 2648 is just a signicture number i use in all my internet account and games.

Nov 09, 2009 at 09:14PM EST

My name is Lolrus because I lost mah bukket. Has you seen it?

Nov 09, 2009 at 09:17PM EST

Some loser Thought of Locutus on xbox live before me so this was the least ridiculous in the suggested name collumn and has been my alias for everthing since

Nov 09, 2009 at 09:41PM EST

My real name is Taryn because it means “The reaper” in Greek.

Then again it means “little princess” in scandinavian.

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:10PM EST

You’re a little princess reaper. And that’s adorable. :3

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:14PM EST

This would make a kickass album cover.

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:17PM EST

my name comes from when i was seven i got a very rare flute and enscribed on it was a red spear.
No joke

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:20PM EST

I was thinking of usernames and then Family Guy popped into my head and I thought of the episode where Brian writes a novel or w/e and “stack of papers” turned into “PileOPapers”.

Hilarity ensues.

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:22PM EST

And back on the original topic, I’ve tried changing over to new usernames. Names that are more metal. Frozen Gauntlet was one of them, and I’m still Blonde Guardian on Twilight Sucks. But nah, I just find this name sticks better with me for some reason. (‘-’ )

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:29PM EST

animecello is what i chant when i am making bendy pencil leads out of BABY GUTS

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:34PM EST

Provie is my real name. I used my real name because my real name is awesome and therefore I win :)

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:44PM EST

that is an amazing name how do you pronounce it? i have been thinking prOVEE

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:51PM EST

Its short for Providence, so it’s pronounced like PRAW-VEE.

Nov 09, 2009 at 10:52PM EST

Tomberry ?
Because of this:

The tornberry word isn’t bad either.

Nov 09, 2009 at 11:34PM EST

But Tomberry, that’s a TONBERRY. “N” not “M”.

PS. Those things always killed me whenever I tried to fight them.

Nov 09, 2009 at 11:45PM EST

Jostin, not in the European version of the game.
The “P” and “B” letters are always preceded by a “M” in those cases.

Funny to think that “Cactuar” has been replaced by the “Pampa” word as well…

Nov 10, 2009 at 12:10AM EST

Oh, I see. Thanks for clarifying that. Also, I see you have changed your avatar.

Nov 10, 2009 at 12:21AM EST

It’s a mutation of my standard username, which has a long, complicated backstory all its own. I dunno why I wanted to change it for this site.

Also, red spear reminds me of Crimson Lance. Now I wanna go play Borderlands again.

Nov 10, 2009 at 12:58AM EST

Spoiler alert:
My username is my name IRL.

Also, Provie-- I swear I thought I saw you while I was blind drunk on Saturday. It led to the most awkward conversation I’ve ever had.

Nov 10, 2009 at 01:17AM EST

Rihk is part of a character name I roleplayed back in ’91.

Nov 10, 2009 at 11:15AM EST

my username is an obscure reference to an obscure video game. Jade Cocoon 2 for the PS2, the shop keeper was named kikinak.

friggin love Jade Cocoon 2, nobody knows it even exists though XP

Nov 10, 2009 at 11:47AM EST

I like the movie Real Genius. I use it in most cases.

Nov 10, 2009 at 02:50PM EST

Do I need to say more? :P

If yes: read my profile discription.

Nov 10, 2009 at 03:19PM EST

i used to use variations of my real name till one is accepted but have started to use unusual variations first because my real name usually isn’t accepted as someone else has got it. dyolf is my middle name backwards. I don’t really think it’s important as long as I’ve got one i recognise or remember quick as I’m forgetermaful.

Nov 10, 2009 at 04:24PM EST

One of my generic usernames is second_in_pie, and I felt like being colourful with it.

Don’t even ask me how second_in_pie got started.

Nov 10, 2009 at 04:28PM EST

Mine is simple.
My name is Nicholas and I used to watch the Simpsons – that’s where the drnic part came from.
I dropped the ‘k’ to differenciate myself from other DrNicks, and decapitalised because I’m lazy.
The 010 bit I added when I started finding other ‘drnics’. It is an album by The Mad Capsule Markets.

Et voila :)
