How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

Ok we got into the IRC about how you got your nickname and this is the thread for it


So how'd you decide on your nickname?


For me i was in 7th grade, still in yugioh at the time. I had found a game called dragonfable and was thinking of a name to sign up. So i was like hmm well my favorite yugioh monster are the toon monster. So i was like hmm toon what . Well i had just saw a commerical on animal planet for penguins and i was like ah-ha Toonpenguin. And since them i've always used toonpenguin as my username/nickname



So how did you come up with your nickname

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

Back in the day I was into naruto, it was the first anime I watched, my favorite character was kiba, I used a derivative of that for my forum name back when NarutoMania was still around, it eventually got shortened to Kibs, since people called me that for short, I believe it was started by Rei, but made popular by KTA and Juno.

Yes, seriously.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

I thought it was cool when I was 13. I was, in fact, wrong, as it's clearly dumb as hell, but it's an old habit, so I continue to use it.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

Back when I was 11 and really just starting to get into anime I was pretty much a weaboo. Naturally, to come up with an 'original' username, I went to a English to Japanese dictionary.

I searched up two words, demon (Oni) and field (bokusu). So, naturally, I just combined the words together without another thought. Over the years I've kinda just stuck with it, eventually just getting rid of 'bokusu' altogether.

Other versions of it include: iOni, iOniV2, OniXera, Onicept.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

My old user name was specialMark, but when I signed up for webtv for the second time I couldn't use it so I had to come up with something new. I had just finished Blue Seed so I decided Mitama King.

And I have never run into someone else using the name, no numbers for me.

I thought Ace sounded cool but everyone has ace already so I had to do something to make it my own so I added the day I was born.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

Believe it or not, it really wasn't that difficult.

Usually I go by "ChrisBaker41" 41 being my hockey number, but every so often I'm lucky enough to come by a forum where just "Chris" isn't being used.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

Moonhawk was the name I took upon joining the Craft "officially." 81 has been my favorite number since I began school--it was the number of the very first bus that took me daily from the cows on the dairy to the wonders of books and other kids my age. . .

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

The username I came up with is apart of my middle name. I didn't like the first part of it (I do now though) so I cut it off and stuck with Llian. In some cases I'd use Lia.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

It began in year 12 biology in a discussion that the Kracken from Pirates of the Caribean was at the top of every food chain. Then we decided that an eagle could beat the kracken.

Then I watched Lord of the Rings were Aragorn says "Legolas what do your elf eyes see". To Which I thought Legolas with an eagles eyes could beat the Kracken.

Yeah. Thats the actuall story.........

My name just describes me pretty well, a lesser form of the most worthless piece on a chess board.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

rivet is derived from one of my favorite words. KEH is a sound I used to make back in California when I was thinking how retarded someone was acting. I didn't notice it before but my friend made me aware of my little sound.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

My user name came from the fact that from kindergarten all the way to Senior year people kept calling me Marco Polo, naturally that go really old really fast and my friends would come up with different things to instead of Polo, like Polio (which i don't get) or another thigh which i don't really want to say on the forums. One friend just called me Po. Anyway Freshman year when creating my account I decided why not shorten it and save me some time on the teasing, which is where Marpolo came from. 1991 is the year I was Born. And I use it for most of my user names for various thing, mainly because i am unimaginative.

Re: How'd you decide on your nickname(on the forums)

My user is very simple. When I was in middle I wanted to draw or doodle for the sheer fun of it. When I was drawing. I came up with my character Max Dagger after I came up with some sketches of him. Sadly I don't have many, but you can see them here. www.maxdagger.deviantart.com I will start posting some picks soon. Just here and there doing some stuff. Also playing mabinogi non stop. x.x
