Some of the user names we've seen on here are pretty obvious, but some are most certainly not (like mine). Tell us why you chose your user name, what it means, if you're happy with it etc... Even if your user name is completely obvious, there might be a story behind it anyway. I will start:

Bombulous I made up out of the blue... I make up words, weird, I know. the "Sgt" before it made it look even more ridiculous and whimsical, which is the type of person I am.

Cheers!

Legend of Lara
14-12-09, 11:53
There are many explanations!


I'm carrying on the legend of Lara!
'The Legend of Zelda", substitute 'Zelda' with 'Lara'.
I just finished TRL at the time.

Try and guess which one I had in mind back then. :p
I thoroughly hate my username. If I were given a chance to change it, I would take it.

LightningRider
14-12-09, 11:56
LOL 3. (Both Laugh out Loud and you User name.)

I think I'm pretty obvious to anyone who's read or seen anything DC Comic's related. :p

Dennis's Mom
14-12-09, 11:59
Well, I'm a mom with a kid named Kevin . . .

Nah, it's Dennis.:p I have three children, but I knew it would annoy Dennis most to use his name. :D (He's registered here under DwightSchrute.)

Crisl
14-12-09, 12:00
Interesting :tmb:

Mine is quite simple. It comes from my real name, but 'cause it's too long, everyone shortens it. My family usually calls me Kris, and then my cousin added the "L" at the end and started to call me that. So I just exchanged K with C in the beginning, and there's Crisl :D

I don't like it because it's such a boring username. But I don't know if I could make up some less boring, so I'd probably stick with this one :)

and to those of us who haven't?

LightningRider
14-12-09, 12:03
and to those of us who haven't?

I was gonna wait for someone to answer..

But yes, it came from a site I used to visit a long time ago, the time when I was obsessed with Rider of the Lightning. The Speed Force Bearers. It came from my Youtube account, and I couldn't think of anything else. :vlol:

Of course, I'm talking about the Flash. Lol. :p

Mine are from lyrics....

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

:)

When I sign up to forums I either use this name or Vicky Wild..which is my name followed by the surname of my favourite actor.

ShadyCroft
14-12-09, 12:08
mine's quite easy. Shady is my real name, and Croft is Croft. Shady Croft, like Lara Croft who's the forum about. :)

It's just a random name I came up with:)

irjudd
14-12-09, 12:23
'Judd' is a nickname I use on the internets since I don't want anybody to know my real name, and the I R part is a throwback to the Cartoon Network show Cow & Chicken; it adds a little bit of fun/with/grammar to it.

Anyways, mine is obvious. Project Carbonek from Legend, or even better the castle of the Holy Grail. And the birth place of Sir Galahad.:D

Clicky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corbenic)

The 0051 part is a random number I thought of.:p

miss.haggard
14-12-09, 13:38
Haggard has always been my go to name, was (and now is back to) my gamertag, I really have no idea why, its just always been, and always will be. I was sick of being called a guy, so I threw the miss in there as well for good measure. Wish I could get rid of it and just be Haggard :p

SGRaider
14-12-09, 13:41
When I was making up my username I decided it has to be something to show me and what I like, so I decided to put my favorite TV show and video game: SG for Stargate and the raider for Tomb Raider(obviously). Yeah, I know it's lame, but I like it. : )

Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of my name and also the first and last letters of the Greek Alphabet..... I tend to say that when someone makes fun of me:"Hey, don't treat me that way, I'm the alpha and the omega!".Alpha2omega:alpha to omega! ms is short for miss and I thought it was preety obvious, until Tony9595 told me he thought it was short for microsoft..... So people keep mistaking me for a guy! :hea:

14-12-09, 16:38
Well my explanation is fairly simple I suppose: my name is Lara (And no, I wasnt named after Tomb Raider - I came first :p My parents actually loved the character Lara from the movie Dr Zhivago) - of course the name Lara wouldn't be available on Tomb Raider Forums for long, so I had to add something to the end. Since the full version of Lara is Larissa, I added 'lissa' to the end for alliterations sake. Bleh :p

I always thought it was in lolcat speak I R Judd, as in I am Judd. :p

I was about to register Nemesis but that one was already taken, so I added Angelus. Nemesis is in Greek mythology the goddess of revenge and Angelus is angel in Latin. To combine good and evil you get the angel of revenge. :cln:

Actually in my mind Reggie is quite British. I did know a couple of Brits by that name in the military, so that's probably why.

Some of the user names we've seen on here are pretty obvious, but some are most certainly not (like mine). Tell us why you chose your user name, what it means, if you're happy with it etc... Even if your user name is completely obvious, there might be a story behind it anyway.

It's my first username ever. Used it on an old AOL account ages ago. It's crappy 'cause back then I was a kid, and I was extremely stupid. Mau = part of my name + 3 = my favourite number + genius = I was such a dumbass I thought it was cool to write "genius". That sums it up pretty accurately. And yes, I extremely hate it, but nostalgia is what makes me keep using it in all sorts of accounts online. I would change it If I could though, something, maybe less retarded.

but that's no big problem, I can live with it :rolleyes:

when I first used my nickname (in 2001 IIRC), I was playing FF7, and I thought Sephiroth was the coolest character ever. So I used his name, but it was already taken. I decided to add numbers to the end (how creative...). Did not want only one number because it looks bad, three was too long, so the number just before 100 is 99 :)

I've been using it for a while now, I don't particularly like it, but it's simpler to use it everywhere :P

Well i first became a gamer when i got a Sony Playstation back in '97. And also back then I had a limited amount of games so i would replay the same ones over and over. I discovered bugs and glitches this way so that's what I decided to put as my username...

as for the 7's anyone who played slots this would be obvious

Mine is simple. I chose "Eddie" because it rhymes with spaghetti, and "Haskell" because it is the ancient Aramaic word for western. But I'm sure you all already knew that.

Mine is real simple. Eddie because I'm steady, and Haskell because I'm a rascal.

Wrong and double wrong. You're a rabble-rouser just like the character on Leave It To Beaver.

I've always been interested to know what Gabi's user name is about. :) Does it reflect your desire to talk? Except, judging by how little you do on the forum, I suspect not. :o

That gets my vote. :) Although I didn't exactly buy it, I got saddled with it for buying my PC in early 2007. Had I known what a mess it is I would have haggled them to install XP instead. :o

I'm not sure that's possible when buying from a big name packager (Dell HP etc...). For desktops, I build my own, for laptops Dell has an (extremely hard to find) open source option, where you can buy a PC with no OS whatsoever... Then you install XP and continue along your merry way :D

My laptop is actually a Vista but due a downgradable disk I made the Vista part hidden so I work on a XP now. I got within 5 minutes so angry at Vista. *double clicks on folder* "Are you sure you want to open it?" *clicks yes* "Are you sure?" I AM OR ELSE I WOULDN'T BE CLICKING IT, RIGHT?! :hea:

'Judd' is a nickname I use on the internets since I don't want anybody to know my real name, and the I R part is a throwback to the Cartoon Network show Cow & Chicken; it adds a little bit of fun/with/grammar to it.

I thought that's what it was from. :D

Squibbly is just a silly name my mother made up and called me when I was a baby/young child. :)

Yesss! That annoyed me to no end as well, hence I bought this laptop because this one had the ability to "become" also an XP. I heard Windows 7 is better, but so far XP is still and will continue to be my baby. :)

Vista was like for me something as, you get up: "Are you sure want to get up?" Yes. "Are you sure you want to walk?" Yes. "Are you sure it's the right door?" Yes. "ARE YOU REALLY REALLY SURE YOU WANT TO OPEN IT?" Yes. Sorry we could not progress your request and Windows Explorer needs to shut down, do you want to report this error? No. *grinding noises as in: Damn you, report me-e-e-e-e* "Your computer will be rebooting in 5 seconds, any unsaved data will be lost, do you want to save your files before it's lost?" Yes. Too late, your device started already rebooting. You're the weakest link, goodbye. :wve:

All of the reasons you guys have discussed have lead me to stick with XP. If another OS comes out that people absolutely love, I'll consider making the move. Congrats on your 3k BTW.

I really doubt there will be a good OS since I dislike the way Windows has gotten but neither one OS can make it real big given the fact Windows is one big monopoly and what people like gets a knock off made by Microsoft. I still keep denying Windows Updates that want me to install Internet Explorer 8 and it looks absolutely like FireFox and I can't stand FireFox, at all. Hence why I'm still using #6 and it's still Windows XP layout, not the ugly Vista one.

My main PC, as I'm writing on it now, was the first PC with XP in this household. I remember missing the Win '98 interface as I grew up with it but eventually I've become really attached to my nearly surviving 10 years with me with only one really fatal crash I lost everything but overall, it's been doing more than fine. Harddisks might have been replaced with time to have more space to put everything on it, but still everything else is original. On the other hand I'd never get rid of my lovely non-flatscreen monitor, flatscreens cause me to have horrible migraines after working like 15 minutes already? I never spend much on my laptop to avoid them from happening.

When I needed a laptop I searched everywhere but everything was Vista and some had a beta of Windows 7, and there was this one store they had one PC left that was downgradable to XP. I didn't have to think about that twice, I bought it, after installing Vista since I had to because for XP Vista would become a hidden partition on the C drive, but first I wanted to try Vista, well I survived 5 minutes and the downgrading progress couldn't begin fast enough because its interface, way of handling and seriously, why should my (mouse) pointer that starts giving me weird sounds when idle? I want a computer interface that is clear and simple, not in all bright colors and totally make me confused.

& Thank ya!
