View Full Version : What does your forum name mean too you?


mmm...cookies
17-08-08, 01:20
Hiya i thought it would be a smashing idea if we all shared what our forum names meant so here goes nothing.


mmm...cookies came too me a couple if years ago when i first found this utopia for TR fans,

I was thinking of names and i didnt want to use my normal gamer tag (kongsnutz) as i hate that now (as of 2006).
I was at home and someone was making cookies and i could smell them, I thought mmm...cookies.............................then it came to me.


hahaha so there is the untold legend of mmm...cookies hahah enjoy!!:p

Dixie
17-08-08, 01:23
Oh fun!

I chose "Dixie" just as a general reference to the fact that I live in the Southern US (Texas). It was also the name of my high school's fight song.
I kind of hate it now cause it sounds sorta girly.

That was short...

Encore
17-08-08, 01:26
There was a thread about this not so long ago I think, but I guess it was too old.

Anyways... Encore started when I was choosing a nickname for DeviantART and I couldn't think of anything until my eyes happened to lay upon a DVD lying on my table. It was Scooter live. :vlol: I totally loved the guys back then! And the DVD was called Encore - Live and Direct. :o From then on it just stuck.

I like the word. Somehow it gives the idea that I'll keep coming back again and again. :mis:

spikejones
17-08-08, 01:29
hmm... i remeber a thread like this being around before - several months ago. Oh well, here goes again.

spike = nickname from jail (long story)
jones = my last name

my forum name therefore is actually my nick name. not very creative huh?

patriots88888
17-08-08, 01:32
Nice choices everyone. :)

patriots88888 is both my favorite NFL football team and the 88888 part is my personal siggy to every username i use. Can't tell you more than that in GC as it has a sexual orientation to it. :p :D

Shrantellatessa
17-08-08, 01:34
I came out with tis weird username (yes I know) years ago when I was about to create a new account in a emails' website, and since I hate usernames with meaningless numbers and underscores, I was inspired (God knows how) to invent the current one, though I was actually indecided between Shrantellatessa and Shantellatessa (without the "R").

As for what it means to me, that's just a long story that I'm too lazy to tell :p :D

Encore
17-08-08, 01:36
^ You do realize that I've ALWAYS been curious about your username.. :vlol: You should tell the story. :o

BtoFu

It was my turntablist handle a few years ago. It contains my initials, the initials of my last project Back To Finish (U) You and Tofu - which I like to eat. :) pronounced as 'beat-o-fu'.

xRikux89
17-08-08, 01:45
Riku is my real first name (Which nowadays people generally refuse to believe and instead ask me "You played Kingdom Hearts?"), and my sister put the x's around it like... Can't remember exactly. But not long after we first had an internet connection at home, yeah. And it stuck with me ever since, I can't be bothered to ever enter anything else when a username is asked. 89 is my birthyear.

xMiSsCrOfTx
17-08-08, 01:48
Yea, but it adds character and flair to it. :)

Aww, thank you. :D

Shrantellatessa
17-08-08, 01:50
^ You do realize that I've ALWAYS been curious about your username.. :vlol: You should tell the story. :o

Well, it's a mixture of many abstract things. But first, please bear in mind that i've created this username 3 or 4 years ago. The length of the username gives it (in my opinion of course) the feeling of being majestic like a long royal dress or the brides long thing that kids hold for her or she drags behind on the carpet :p Also, the first part of it, Shran, doesn't mean anything but give me the impression of wildness and projects a visual image of a tiger's claws (maybe coz Sharr means evil in Arabic, my mother tongue), which conveys, to me, an impression of danger :cool: Finally, the second part of it, tessa, sounds to me like Contessa, Altessa, or Princessa :cln:

You see, that was the weirdest username story you've probably ever heard, I hope you'll manage to sleep tonight :ton:

Encore
17-08-08, 01:53
hahah No way, it's actually quite interesting, you've put some thought in it and that's great! :tmb: I've always felt there was indeed something "royal" or "majestic" about your username... :)

Zebra
17-08-08, 02:14
Well...Zebras are one of my favourite animal species. And that is why I chose this name. It has pretty much turned into the name I'm using almost everywhere in the internet.

Shrantellatessa

Quasimodo
17-08-08, 02:28
I chose "Quasimodo" because it reminds me of my mom's nick name for herself before she had back surgery to fix a herniated disk.

In hindsight I guess I also share some attributes with the character. I'm not deformed or anything :p but I do see a bit of myself in that artistic, self-depreciating hermit.

not again!
17-08-08, 02:30
My usernames actually never have any deeper meaning. When I have to pick one, I usually take a random word or phrase from the first sentence to come to mind. Thusly Iíve roamed the intarwebz under names like what?, embarrassing and - my favourite - mouse_wheel. :)

:ton:I do hope that's not your nicknae where you live. Oh well You can change it to High Sorcerrus Nazu if more people would wanna do voice work we'd see your performance soon.

silver_wolf
17-08-08, 02:34
I chose mine because I like wolves and it just sounded cool.

peeves
17-08-08, 02:49
Well I chose peeves because i was obsessed with askpeeves.com and the character peeves in harry potter book. That was 2 years ago.

takamotosan
17-08-08, 04:24
well, mine is actually just a quote from legend. the part in the japan level when takamoto and lara are bantering back and forth. takamoto says "be brief, miss croft. i have many demands on my time, you understand." and she says "of course, takamoto-san"

this quote has always stuck in my head for some reason. everytime someone asks me a question, and i answer "of course", i always think "of course, takamoto-san" in the back of my head.

and i wanted to pick an obscure TR reference.

i was going to have it as ofcourse,takamotosan, but it wouldn't fit.

so it is now takamotosan :D

Feather Duster

Ward Dragon
17-08-08, 04:49
Shortly before I signed up for the forums, I took one of those many "Which...are you?" type quizzes. This one was about dragons, and it said I was a "Warder Dragon." When I signed up for the forums, I decided to use that and I thought it sounded better as "Ward Dragon" :)

.. like me!


*makes Joker laugh*

:vlol: :D

rowanlim
17-08-08, 05:19
This is the 3rd time I answered the same question :D

Well I read the Mayfair Witches saga by Anne Rice, where the main character was a powerful female witch called Rowan Mayfair. Her story was really dark & beautiful, so that's where I get "rowan" from.

Lim is my surname, so there's rowanlim :)

Death Mask
17-08-08, 05:19
I chose my forum name from a Japanese anime that I used to watch when I was a kid, the show was Knights Of The Zodiac, the anime is based on Greek Mythology, in the Sanctuary Saga there are 12 Gold Knights that the main characters have to fight, these 12 Knights have a mission to protect a Goddess, each of the 12 Knights have a constellation as their guardian symbol, the 4th Knight is Death Mask, his guardian constellation is Cancer, which happens to be my Zodiac Sign, that's what inspired me to chose my forum name. :p

P.S. I hope you can understand my bad English. :o

Immortalis08
17-08-08, 05:19
no meaning whatsoever...I combined the aspect of immortality and the realm of mortalis, where only mortals live (from the game Primal),added my graduation year , and that was that....

Tyrannosaurus
17-08-08, 05:47
Tyrant Lizard King. The genus Tyrannosaurus ("tyrant lizard") is in greek, while the species name rex ("king") is Latin, which emphasizes my utter superiority. Or so I was christened by the Naked Ape in 1905, specifically by Henry Fairfield Osborn.

Remember the great prophet Othniel C. Marsh, who was impressed with the strength and power of my arch-nemesis Triceratops horridus. He had no way of knowing just who this one was up against, for I was first made known to humankind a mere three years after his death. Click to read Osborn's description:

Well this is my first opportunity :D Explorer - well Lara Croft of course is an explorer and exploration in the TR games is something I particularly love :) I didn't choose it because of it being a member status, in fact I'm not sure the statuses we have today were around back when I joined?

So thats why i dont wont anyone to look at my name and think its tr with a laughing face at the end.

Lara Croft!
17-08-08, 11:25
When I registered here, I just knew I had to put "Lara" or "Croft" in my name. Since my real short name is Lora, I though "Lora Croft", believing that all the "Lara Croft" names would have been taken here. So I thought, Lara Croft with an exclamation mark. This way I get to have the best name in the forums and with the "!" at the end, people will know who I am.

And some panic in those eyes
If I see you lying there,
Hoping this was the last time

If you hear a distant sound,
And see footsteps by your side.
When the world comes crashing down.
I will find you if you hide.

If you wish it, wish it now.
If you wish it, wish it loud.
If you want it, say it now.
If you want it, say it loud.

We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want it, I want to.
We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want to I want to

There's a field with a dream.
I watched it grow with whitest light.
I watched us all reach out and lean.
For the strength to touch the sky.

If you hear a distant sound.
And some footsteps by your side.
If you feel like comin' round.

Well a couple of years back, me and my sister was trying to add 'licious' onto the end of words, and at the same time we were thinking about joining the forum. So when it came to choosing a username I took Lara's name and added 'licious' on the end. And to this day I still like the name.

The most random name i could get! :p
It was made out of pure imagination, when trying to name a character on Diablo 2. After that it just stuck with me in every forum, game, etc.
Probably not an exciting story, but yeah, there's no real meaning behind it! :)

Evelyn.

I had merged my two favourite games together. :D

Dreamfall and Tomb Raider.

Moreover, I am a hunter of dreams in reality. I think...:p
