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

It's my rap name, I use it everywhere.

In the early days of network gaming I used to go by PYRO, but when that got old I switched to Mr.E. Nowadays it's just Breaker.

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

I usually have a different handle for every site. After a bit of a wake up call, I decided to pick a new one and stick with it across different sites, forums, and communities for a number of reasons. As to why I picked Aero... well... I had this nifty avatar that I cut out of a large picture sitting around and figured it would be a good name for him. Plus it sounds cool (or at least not totally lame >.>;).

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

I've always used a variation of LitespeedEXE, originally Lightspeed-EXE, then slowly shortened down. This is the first time I could get my forum name as short as Lite, so I rolled with it.

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

I've often used it as my characters names in mmo's (Jubiley if I can't spell it right).
One of my favorite X-men, she shoots out fireworks.
Wow -> I play a Priest -> they gave us penance -> looks like fireworks -> hello, Jubi!
Plus, it means to show great joy or satisfaction...and I consider myself an upbeat person! Happiness makes life worth living and all that jazz.

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

Been using this for years now. It holds a lot of meaning to me. And yes, it's a typo, but I keep it that way. (The correct way would be Kerberos, which is the greek name for the giant three-headed dog that guards the entrance to the underworld. Also the name of a character in Card Captor Sakura.)

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

Tytonidae is one of the two broader families of owls(the other being Strigidae). More specifically Tyto subspecies barn owls are identified by distinctly heart shaped faces or "masks" and are often called masked owls. I'm a late night kind of guy with a history of insomnia, so I've been called a nightowl, but I thought "Night Owl" was a little too straight forward for a username, and since the iconic barn owl face makes for a nice, simple, monochrome logo to use as an avatar, "Tyto" I became.

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

Mine has been my nickname for years since all of my IRL friends refer to me as it. I'm actually more known as Rish than my real name.

This is my first time using this nick. And, well, I'm probably older than almost all of you, and you should listen to your nii-chan.

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

According to google, 'Twilly' is some character off of a free-mmo called AQ.

According to me, I made it up. :wink: I added the special character, 'ÿ' when I couldn't name my Gnome Rogue on Wow, Twilly...thus began, twillÿ. It's become my alter ego for years now and I go by this as much as I do my real name. ^^ ((I also don't CAPS it on forums for some reason, go figure.))

So there you go. My deep dark persona secret. >.<

-twillÿ.

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

I've had a couple names before my current Username... I created this one a loooooong time ago back when I was first signing up for that old Hot Wheels site that doesn't exist anymore, PlanetHotwheels, by combining the word Super with my last name. The FD was added when I started going by Fierce Deity Suprema, but was too long for some sites, so I shortened it to FDSuprema.

My actual Nickname, Ed, happened when I joined a megaman fansite, two years ago. A friend of mine on that site, back then he was more of an acquaintance, thought my username was too long, so he started calling me Ed, and it caught on with the rest of my friends. Even my family calls me Ed now, despite my actual name being Jordan.

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

Mine came from FFXI i just kept hitting random till i saw one I liked which took about an hour or so and I still didn't like the i finally picked so I changed the s to a z and then added another z, and I've now had the name for a few years now.

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

My username beats all others....if the contest was for lack of creativity. -_-||| It's simply my first name with random numbers since Louis is a common name. ^_^;;;

It's professional enough to use on all of the forums I'm a member of so that if anyone knows me on any of the other 10-15 forums I post to in a given week, they can recognize me.

I used to go by "Anime6507" from Jr. High to Sr. High...I still even use my original AIM account with that screen name. lol But...it got a little weird as I grew up...not like I'm old or anything....but, after being an ESL teacher for so many years in Asia.........my students would tease me about a screen name like that, and I switched to this variation ever since.

So, it's a long story, as you can see, but very uncreative. ^_~
