      So what made you choose your name?

      I’ll start:

      A friend of mine called himself BlenderOfDeath on Warcraft 3 battlenet so I kinda just copied him a bit. That was 5 years ago, never been good with names :P

      Your turn

      Zen = “to be at one with something”
      nin = “ninjas say nin when they feel ultra cool and i like ryu hayabusa”

      – Zenin = just sounds cool i guess :cheer:

      Nkosi is actually the leader of a meerkat clan i saw in a tv documentation.

      The funny thing was the guy who spoke he comments had imagined some kind of roleplay story for the clips of that meerkat clan and spoke about em like they where a gang. “…and Nkosi the Leader of this strong gang watches out for enemies all the day long” *Nkosi stands up on his rear legs and watches the surrounding area* i loled hard^^

      Nkosi is also the first word in the South African anthem.

      My username, well. I can’t remember where it started, all I know is I use it in EVERYTHING, except youtube where the name was taken. If I don’t use rebel28, I use therebel28, but sometimes they’re both taken.

      Some may wonder “how the f*ck do you come up with Stapler Pirate”. the truth is I wanted a unique name that made people go “WTF!”. I was at school and I was thinking about pirates (as you do) and a friend shouted “STEVO” to another friends. I heard “STAPLER”. Then I put 2 and 2 together… And now I am Stapler Pirate.

    • #84974

      For me it was fairly simple.
      I am a huge Zombie fan, and I like fire.

      IE: Corpsefire.

      My commonly used forum name “DejaVu” was used at the Toribash forums, but since I use Lol-Nade as my Steam username, I stuck with it for everything else.

      Lol-Nade is basically an inside joke. My friend and I played CS:S in the cs_office, and we had grenade wars. We laughed pretty hard.

      “lolololol *boom*”

      Sometimes it’s lolinade, LolNade, etc.

      i chose it based on a warcraft 3 easter egg where the sheeps *and possibly other animals* would explode if were clicked violently. and yes it has nothing to do with just cause 2, or explosions.

      Ninel is Lenin spelt backwards. Lenin is the nickname of the courageous and mighty leader of the 1917 Russian Revolution and leader and founder of the Bolshevik party which later became known as the soviets.

      Coldie
      Member

      Mine was chosen because I started the Coldie trend back in Battlefield 2. It actually started out as a GameSpy automatic chosen nickname: Coldsasquatch. I later shortened it to Coldie, and now I use it for all my games.
      TL;DR: Gamespy chose ColdSasquatch and I use Coldie.

      powerslave212 (This account, e-mail address and first xbox gamertag)
      Powerslave because it’s the name of an album and song by Iron Maiden.
      212 because powerslave was already taken.

      3Clowns1Hammer (my youtube name)
      A parody name for the horrible 3guys1hammer video.

    • #84854

      it’s interesting how exotic name choosing ends up being for most people. i found it easy.

      taiiat – the letters, tai are in my name, and it is simply reversed once. couldn’t get much simpler.

      Hmm… Frak Munkie.

      Well.. All of us have seen Battle Star Galactica and know what “Frak” replaces… Now… I couln’t very well use that as a game name… so I chose Monkey.. but to be different I did a retard job on it.. spelling it Munkie.

      I first got into gaming.. wiped the [email protected] out of the entire 40 player battlefield, came first and watched the replay.

      I jumped around a lot.
      And I like snipers and High places.. So Munkie was naturally suited to the aspect of being all over the place.
      And Frak.. well I frakk’d every one of those motherfrakkers in my first ever FPS game.
      Ever.

      It has stuck since.

      Big Boss
      Participant

      I chose Big boss as my name because I was betrayed by my close friends like he was. I was to young and naive once(snake) but I had to grow up(big boss) fast. I am 20 years old and I have more experience in life than people far older than me. From birth I was surrounded by war in my country Croatia, there are still some tensions in the Balkans I am happy that I live but many don’t and that is sad. There are no winners in war, but for freedom war is sometime a necessary evil.

      I have trouble believing in anybody.
      I always fight for what I believe in.
      I don’t have a spot open for ideology and I wouldn’t die for some ideology.
      I love how Snake fights for no country or ideology he fights for himself he doesn’t want to be a puppet of the politicians, a pawn in a game.

      And actually some of my friends call me “Veliki šef” (big boss translated from Croatian) because I am 1.93 m tall

    • #88694

      My name has a story behind it, in fact I have the story stored in a misc folder on my desktop just for this occasion. Here it is:

      Okay, so once upon a dead hobo: Little Wonkeh wanted to hear a story from his father. So Father told him a story about the first presidential election, the senators of all 50 states all needed to race across the nation making their own form of transportation, the winner would be declared president.

      Skipping all the unnecessary details, the senator from Florida was named Wonkehcheetah, he tried to shoot himself across the nation from a cannon. Unfortunately, the cannon was loaded with a cannon ball, so when the cannon went off: it blew Wonkehcheetah into a billion pieces.

      The name describes my goofy, playful, and sometimes idiotic sense of humor. So I use that as my name (or Wonkeh If Wonkehcheetah is too long) for like everything.

      The name MASTERCONTROL!!!! comes from when I was 11 on my playstation and my account being the master account, I had MASTERCONTROL!!!! over the other accounts. Where exclamations and capitals are not allowed in usernames, I go by ka-BONK.

      That’s hilarious. ;)

      Of course the natural next question is…
      What made you choose the other user name: ka-BONK?

      ka-BONK comes from when I first made an account for Playstation Network and MASTERCONTROL!!!! was not availible (No exclamations!) So being spoiled by steam’s ability to change your name at will, I just came up with a random name to hold me over until I could think of a better name. Well, you can’t change your name there and I was stuck with ka-BONK. Eventually I got used to it and started to go by it.
