It all started with a character called Lancaster…

Lancaster was an average Joe who one day stumbles upon a time-traveling clock, which he proceeds to put on his Afro.

As time went on, the Afro turned into a red helmet. He became a time cop known as Jake Johannes. (Pronounced Jo-han-as, not Yo-hans.)

Finally, the Time Cop concept was dropped. The clock on his head was removed, and the focus started shifting from a humorous protagonist to a cutesy sidekick. The modern Jake was born.

The reason why I’m referred to as Intergalactic Joe and not Intergalactic Jake comes from a blog I once had. At one point, a character that stemmed off of the Time Cop design used the name Jake Johannes as well. When I decided to use the newer Jake design on a separate character, I had to change his name so it wouldn’t seem like a repeat. He was therefore known as Joe for a period of time.

Lichs from the warcraft series generally use frost magic accompanied with their necromancy magic. Also, was thinking of 7/11 frosties and ice cream while thinking up the name so, voilà.

“Necro-” is a greek prefix for death, but it also means “Necronomicon”, creation of Abdul Alhazred AKA Mad Arab from the Cthulhu Mythos.

“-magen” refers to “Primagen”, the final boss of Turok 2.

“-vion” refers to “Oblivion”, the not-so final boss of Turok 3.

Named after my great great uncle Adam, thought he was always called Otto for some reason.

Dammit, Jostin. I was going to say that.

When Bob was born his mother said to her husband “Holy crap! He looks just like a Bob!”, to which Bob’s father replied “It’s definitely a Bob”.

The rest is history.

My first name is Jimmy (not James, Jimmy is my legal name), and Lethal comes from “The Lethal Weapon” Steve Blackman.

My name comes from that old joke “If you choke a smurf, what color does it turn?”

“The Soldier is a crazed patriot from America’s heartland. Tough and well-armed, he’s versatile, capable of both offense and defense, and a great starter class to get familiar with the game.
The Soldier is well known for his spectacular rocket jump. In defiance of all good sense and judgment, the Soldier can detonate a rocket at his feet and launch himself skyward at the cost of some health. This ability allows the Soldier to pop up in unexpected places and reach areas off-limits even to the Scout’s double jump.”

Well, my current name came to me because it’s, well, my birthday.

But “Mack” and all its derivatives come from a corruption of my first name.

Aug 22, 2013 at 01:00PM EDT

Ashbo=Ashlee and Beau. I made a youtube profile for me and my niece six years ago and still can’t come up with a better name. This is the reason why I made those name change threads years ago.

Named after my main character in the roleplay general. That name was in turn chosen in such a way so that it could be shortened to what my usual name is (TARDISES)… which is in itself a reference to, well, the TARDIS from Doctor Who.

My first name is “Henry”. I have a (kinda, sorta, from a certain point of view) Russian background. Russians for some reason can’t pronounce the English “h” sound and approximate it to “g”, even though they have a different sound that’s probably much closer: “kh”.

I added the “Sir” to sound fancy.

Myco- prefix meaning of or relating to fungus
-nix suffix used in numerous Unix-like operating systems
In other words, there is no “official” point to my name. It just happened out of my interests.
EDIT: Yes I know that’s not my username right now goddamnit

Originally, I was known as Frost, which is a shortened version of the usual username I use, Frostsamurai. However, due to recent events involving a copy-and-pasted Kingdom Hearts article that was eventually Deadpooled, Gaben decided to start calling me OP. As such, I added Disgrace towards the end since there are other people with OP usernames on this site as well, and Disgrace is what really describes me right now.

After all my time here, I’ve kinda lost the point of my name.

Oh well many know me as ‘Quantum’ now but I’m sure that will change to ‘Guy who tries to be cool sometimes #13565’
