The Story of your Username

Recommended Posts

I was registering for a car forum:

"Hmm... what's clever enough to work?"

"Oh, what about used honda!"

"Wait, that won't work. Not enough emphasis"

"USEDhonda? Nah."

"usedHonda? Blegh"

"usedHONDA? Meh."

"Aw man, the MTV Music Awards are about to start."

Then, I was registering to the PDN forums after it crashed on me like 5 times one night:

"I'm so pissed. I hate this program!"

"Why the hell do I have to register? Can't it just be like a big Wiki-based discussion site or something fancy?"

"Grr, it was hard enough just to find the forum, and what I found is so... low-end"

"Nevertheless."

"Let's see... maybe I should use my real name. Or at least my last name."

"Nah, it doesn't even deserve that"

"usedHONDA."

So yeah, my username was almost Del Rio [or DelRio or any other variety one can think of]

I've had it for 5 years...

My favourite animal is the tiger, and my surname started with a Z, 'Tiger-z' sounded queer, so I made it Tigerclawz.

I've started to just abbrieviate it to TiGER" now...

It's kinda queer, but meh... It's my thing...

EDIT:

My surname still starts with a Z.

Modnar? Your surname? I just turned all the numbers in your name to letters... No, wait...

.:EDIT:.

Random!

Nooooooooooo my secret :cry:

But what impressed me about Illnab1024 is that I never told anyone it was a code or anything.. he just said one day ".. I finally worked out your name, Random" - it was all very James bond!

Which reminds me... where is the old Pictorium?

Latin for "I've been thinking".

OK, so it's not as cool as the Rock's "Semper Fi(delis)" tattoo in the movie Doom, but it's too late to change it now :|

I've been wondering what your name meant for a long time, thanks :)

Anyways, my name comes from my online ID username for Battlefield 2. The Gamer part... well you can guess where that comes from, and I have no idea how I came up with the World part...then I just used an underscore between because I couldn't use a spacebar. The 14 comes from what my age was at that time, but now I'm not fourteen anymore :D

Nothing mysterious about my username. I'm involved with a particular chess website so I can play chess online with my son and I had to pick something. Someone else already had "DarkKnight" so I had to come up with this one. It stuck, I've been PeterPawn ever since.

Why is my name Ouchy_S?

Well... On an Online Game, my Character was called Ouchy S. I then joined a forum for that game (Tip.It (Yes, it was RuneScape, I hate that game now...)) and I used that name too. I joined PDN, and I wanted the same name, so I kept it.
