Hi all, just something a little different, would like to know the meaning behind your online name in these forums. I will start it off, mine is simple, I love f1 and I am from Australia.

Who's next?

xautos
04-08-2015, 13:50
xautos is actually just an adaption of the former brazilian motogp racer, Rubén Xaus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubén_Xaus). i just added 't' and a 'o' in the middle. i liked his surname and still do.

TheReaper GT
04-08-2015, 13:52
My gamertag used to be my name, but I'm a pretty good battlefield 4 player and after one round a american guy started chat with me and call me the reaper, like Nicholas Irving. Being an shooting instructor and war aficionado I like that and decided to change. :D

Mine come's from the TV show Red Dwarf. been a while since I've watched it so bear with me but Rimmer somehow ends up with Hologram sickness I think and he goes a bit crazy and he has this penguin puppet thing which he calls Mr Flibble.

81 is the year I was born.

My name is just the nickname that my friends call me. Not sure how it came about - maybe because I'm the shizznit.

WhoosierGirl is a play on "Who's your girl" and "Hoosier". Hoosier is the nickname of someone from the state of Indiana, the "Girl" should be pretty obvious, lol.

That's some clever sh*t right there ;)

Walked into a shop today and heard "Pigsy!", made my anus twitch as I have not been called that in twenty years, was an old friend which was nice.
I was called that for a very very long time, since the age of six, the reason was because I'm fat and Monkey was on telly at the time and kids are cruel.
This is not my online name as that would be silly and you probably don't care anyway :D

MillsLayne
05-08-2015, 02:52
In high school, my friends started calling me Mills and then to Mills Lane (partly because of my last name, Milioti) and I changed it to MillsLayne for the late Layne Staley from Alice In Chains. I started using it for a couple of online forums and it just stuck.

Psychomatrix
05-08-2015, 03:55
Psychomatrix was originally inspired by the videogame character psychomantis in metal gear solid on psx. I loved the final fight against him and the story of his life and the final words and the tragedy in it. By the way all of solids enemys have tragical lifes. With the years if changed mantis to matrix because I named my former musicproject so.

ElectricBlues85
05-08-2015, 08:07
Mine is relatively new from when I got PS4. It's really difficult to find a PSN that doesn't involve l33t speak as everything has been taken.

I'm really into Blues music, it was PSN that added the Electric bit as a recommendation which kind of worked since I play electric guitar. I was born in '85.

OrenIshii BE
05-08-2015, 09:17
Mine's rather straight forward

started of as OrenIshii (mainly counterstrike source)
then bought a xbox 360 and that was taken, just add BE in the back, being from Belgium makes sense :p

picked that name when the Kill Bill movie released, love that character.
And find Lucy Liu a hot chick :p

EDIT:
and whenever i create a clan or group,
i always try to get something in the lines of Crazy88

sbtm
05-08-2015, 17:31
sbtm stands for "stranger by the minute".
This was the first song I heard from the band " Porcupine tree" in 2003, and since then I use "sbtm" on the internet.

Still one of my favourite songs.

I love Red Dwarf and have been reminded of this scene. (I would attach the video as others have but can't work out how)

PureMalt77
06-08-2015, 13:26
That was end of 2007, start of 2008, when I got my PS3 and had to register a PSN account.
The day before I've visited a Whisky-Tasting event and brought a bottle of Single Malt Scotch with me.
When it came to choose an account name, I looked at the bottle, the bottle looked at me, and we decided together! The 77 is obvious :-)

U tell me, so i can tell u.

I have no idea. i always used Red_Alert as nickname
But after battlefield 2 that nickname was picked and since than i picked this.
Its a character from an Anime or something. Looked cool so used it since than.

Ridiculous name. But somehow i kept it for 5+ years now. Still no idea why. Honestly.

CPU M Rossi
07-08-2015, 00:07
not much to it really so I will start from my first Xbox live GT
well when I first signed up for Xbox live on my nephews Xbox 360 there wasn't a random name so I had to figure something out & everything I tried was used s I ended up using my user name from deviantart, which was Lost In Black :hopelessness:
which I used at the time because I didn't figure on playing online since at the time I didn't know you would get a free month from creating an account on a 360 that had some free xbox month/s with it. Anyway after about a little over a year of playing online I decided to see if I couldn't either find a new GT from the random generator was kinda fun or make another one up myself none of the randoms really grabbed my attention. So I decided to try CPU M Rossi and to my surprise it wasn't taken even after Forza 1-3 so figured it was worth the price of changing my GT and has been for about 4 years, I use it as my username pretty much everywhere.
Have had some funny reactions to my GT on Xbox Live

had one friend ask if I worked for Microsoft after I changed my GT

more then once someone has asked about the random AI while I was in a lobby

also when Forza 4 had first came out(was no crash time to turn people into at the time)me & some friends were in a F class hopper lobby & two guys pulled out Stock Hummers so I grabbed the Hummer as well figuring the worst(wreckers) while hoping they just wanted to drive the Hummer. But nope they were pushing people in little cars off left and right, so when I got a chance to get them not many other cars around I started picking on them and they thought an AI car was hitting them.

Only thing I remember is, that I used the name "Indestructible" (after my favorite song from that time *) and somehow, that name was already taken on a forum in every variation I could accept. So I went with invincible. Somehow... well, haven't changed it ever since.

Sergio is because if I change my name, it will be Sergio Ramos.
Not a fan of the football player really. Just think it sounds sexy, if said right!
"Sergio Raaaamoss" with a gruff Spanish accent sounds a lot better than "Phil" in Bristolian.

MyBailey07

MyBailey07 is my name on all forums I participate in. Bailey was the dog that started an endless love for all things canine. He adopted me, taught me so much about life and showed me so much. He was truly my best friend. He died too early in '07 in an accident at our home. I still much him very much.

Bailey loved to run but our backyard was a bit too small for him to truly stretch his less. Now he is free to run as far and fast as he wants to.

I miss you, buddy. Run, Bailey, Run!

Scav3nger
18-08-2015, 16:04
Originally my alias was Av3nger, that being as straight forward as it looks, was already taken as a gamertag by the time I was jumping in to Xbox Live. I tried all manner of permutations, Avenger (like that was going to be free when Av3nger was already taken though, right), Aveng3r, Aven9er, and so on, to no avail. Eventually I decided that I could tack on the first two letters of my name and turn it into Scav3nger, low-and-behold Scav3nger was available and the rest, as they say, is history.

Some say that the name "Shinzah" comes from the seventh circle of hell.
And that he will unleash the most destructive chaos.
That he exists everywhere and always.
Watching you.
Judging you.
Preparing to destroy you.

Some say that.


But mostly I chose it because it was a popular name and I like to blend in.
