Your Username
  • Just wondering how people came by their handles. Some are quite obvious, like Squall's (well, maybe not the 999 bit!) but some are quite bizarre - well, I think so!

    To get the ball rolling, I got mine because of a saying I have (to be used when I'm quite flabberghasted/confounded!):

    "Well pass the lip gloss and call me Lola"! :cheesy:

    Some of my friends just started calling me Lola! :biggrin:
    (And Charm, you still haven't divulged what it is about the name Lola where you come from!!!!)
    The Nicolina bit is just an exotic extension of my first name, Nicole. :cheesy:

    So, time to start spilling the proverbial beans I think, n'est ce pas? ;)
  • i got mine from a video game (starcraft) and i thought it was cool but i think i should change it
  • I just made my name up.
  • Mine is an old thing between friends (going back about five years now).
  • [b]Tiff is just a shorten version of my real name that I've been called by my Family, Friends and Girlfriends over the many year of my life on the planet.

    Christopher - Chris'tiff'er, well you try and say my name when you are a 18 month old child just starting to talk, the name can be a mouthfull for a young child, so they just cut it down to 4 letters.

    The '71 bit at the end is the year I was born and is my Lucky number as well :)

    Now Majik's Name, There's a great story behind his name, but that's been told far too many times. Better not got there again, only a live chat could bring out the truth about it ;)

    Truth! API members can't handle the Truth! (of Majik's name)
  • my name means absolutely nothing.
  • Well ofcourse i got my name at FF IX!
    Zidane

  • My name is pretty simple.

    I love the Resident Evil series so i just switched the words around and came up with this name. :)

    GOOD GAMING!!!

  • I copied this from the "What does your nickname mean" Thread.

    Well no prizes for guessing what mine means!
    My name is Barry & I used to be a chocoholic, I used to eat 1-2Kg of Chocolate a day (I'm not so bad now) & I also went through a phase of wearing brown!!! An uncle of mine said that if I was a bar of chocolate I'd eat myself. So he abbreviated that & I became Bar O'Choc & it stuck. I actually like it. Some of my mates call me Choco for short.
    My nickname used to be Spud! 'cause my second name is Murphy & I'm not going to go into that but a lot of Murphy's are called Spud, usually the coolest one in the family!!! :cool:
    PS: I'm not fat from eating chocolate either! I'm actually in good shape.....I think! ;)

  • Well, last summer I went to visit my Mom in Pennsylvania.
  • I'm completely fasinated by sharks.
  • I use this name for virtually everything. I got it a few years back when i started playing Worms: Armaggeddon over the net. It's not very original (i found there was at least another 2 KiLLa's playing W:A) but i couldn't be bothered thinking of anything else.
  • I think mine's quite explanatory but I'll tell you anyway! I went on holiday last year with my two cousins and my sister and despite the fact that we all drank a LOT that week, I was the only one not to spew! After I came back, I reclaimed my computer and decided to open a hotmail account, and in view of the previous week's activities came up with hangoverqueen. I still deal with my hangovers quite well though...
  • Hi Lola!

  • My name is something I thought up while I was playing Terranigma for the SNES.
  • For mine, I was playing Colin McRae Rally one day, and was trying to pick a name that would imply what one would see when I went by at HIGH VELOCITY! Anyways, I was brainstorming when suddenly, (for some odd reason), I thought of the way a tube TV shuts down. (ziff..................gone). Although, I'm pretty sure the "ziff" part comes from seeing the logo to Ziff Davis Media, publisher of many of our favorite mags.

    Dat's eet!

    ziff.......................gone.
  • actually my name is backwards. it's actually ladyziro which is my nickname at school. That or boogie zoogie. Don't ask. It's a REAL long story. Or if you really wanna know that much, ask. :laugh3:
  • i dont really know why I have badboy. I guess when I first got a computer and I picked a user name I thought of badboy because I wanted to be cool or something and ever since I have used that name in every username thingy. The 3223 is beacuse when I played football my number was 32 and I like that number and the 23 is from basketball, you know MJ! Jordan.

    later, piece.!

  • Mine is just complete nonsense.
  • Mine stands for my favorite video game character of all time, Lu Bu! From Dynasty Warriors 2 and 3 he is one bad mother!
  • [b]Devilchild, I said in another thread, I was having a few drinks around a fire on the beach in a little town in Indonesia (don't remember which) and we had attracted the local residents attention, one guy in perticular was harassing us. We had a bottle of 151 that nobody was gonna touch, so I took a mouthful, lit my bic, and let out about a 4 ft flame. The locals had no clue how I did this and the harasser ran screaming and yelling something, one of the less tarrified folks said, in rough english, " hey call you child of the devil." No matter how hard I tryed I could not convince them otherwise. So from then on my friends branded me"Devilchild".
  • [/B]Well, This is now my second attempt to post on this thread since I thought I had completed a post and went to backspace and the whole post disappeared?? :mad: My name is Brasslife and it means that I play all(or almost) brass instruments(musical) for most of my life :0 I chose the name when registering for napster and have struck with it ever since. [U]brasslife [/B] has been part of my online persona for ?? years...I look so young and feel so old.. :mad:

Oh well, my name comein 3 parts from my surname (Veitch), i then changed the 'i' to a 1 when i got board at the start of the school year and wrote 'Ve1tch' on all my new books, and the 'the' was added when one of my friend rang up, my mum answered, they asked for 'Veitch', she replyed 'which one' to which my friend replyed 'THE Veitch who else??' the name then just stuck.
    Siince then i've got a pc and so i use the name for most things- hotmail address, personal web site address, this great forum and for online games like Command and Conquer:Red Alret 2,and Age of Empires 2.
  • well mine is my nick name but no one ever calls me that they call me drew but i dont even like that name. my reall name is andrew and i cant tell you the rest or ill have to kill you. not hahhahahahahaha

  • Mine was a combination of the year I graduate(2004) my favorite playstation character of all the games I've seen.(Red XIII and pups)and then the other part is a guy I like(Kenny) so I just combined the whole thing and it formualted into this thing right here. :read:

  • I have a cat and when she was first born she looked blue and her eyes were a bright blue too and so I called her Sapphire.
  • My username came from a name that I have always loved. I want to call our first boy Rex but the wife is dead set against it. Might be able to sway her into letting me give it to him as a middle name, but it would not just be Rex, Rexford it means "King". The 77 is due to the fact that I had some comptuer problems and had to re-register here. So I figured that I would just add my favorite number on the end.
  • T Dog is one of my nicknames, a friend gave it to me because he thinks I'm "Top" Dog. My girfriend says I have puppy dog eyes.. :0 so go figure :D
  • [b]mine is sorta a nickname among my friends.

Now I've got a tatoo of black angel wings across my back, from shoulder to shoulder! I wanted to be different! :D xxxxxxxxxxx

  • Hey LolaNicolina, it hasn't finished yet, I've still got my post to do! lol

    I got my name really strangely. I registered for something or over ages ago and because I was new, I thought of Newy, Newie and stuff like that, but were all taken. I finnaly got to Newish, and since that long time ago, everyone has called me that.

    (In reply to the below post)
    Hola Lola, again. Thanks for the compliment. After the awards i'm changing it to a different 3D cool spot I have found on the internet!
    Have fun ppl!
  • Well you think that's weird, when I signed up for a Yahell account a couple of years ago (with the name I use here) it came back that there was already someone with that name! How unlikely is that?? It's not like it's common is it?!! And the fact that part of it is actually my real name anyway makes it even more bizarre!

    Thanks for your post - hope you are enjoying the forums. Like the new av by the way although I really liked your Cool Spot one as well!

    See you around!
  • Well mine is a combination of 2 of my nicknames, both which have been around for many years.

    The first part IS my name and the whole thing is where I work, in studios. I'm a recording engineer and a carpenter/cabinet maker, I spend 90% of my time in recording studios and in workshops.
    Now you all know the amazing and awesome history that is my handle.
