Why did you choose the username you are using here? :)

Mine is a bit odd... I had this sort of crush on this Icelandic actor (not famous) and he gave me this really intense eye contact one time I was on the front row of a small theatre... http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/smilie/liebe/g110.gif

He's sooo cute and I have a thing for Icelanders! http://www.trle-community.net/images/smiles/heart.gif http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/smilie/liebe/g062.gif

Angel_14
25-04-06, 17:10
Wow, this is a long story... :D

Once upon a time, when I joined this forum, I wanted the name 'Angel of Darkness' but that was occupied. Than I wanted 'Legend', but that was occupied too. THan I wanted 'Angel' but that was occupied too. Than I decided, to put that '_14' after the Angel name, because I'm 14 years old.
And I live not so happily with my name after all... :D

jarhead
25-04-06, 17:11
apparently my friends agreed that i have a jar shaped head so the name stuck. i use it to sign everything now coz more poeple know me by jarhead then jared so

Janny
25-04-06, 17:14
When I joined the forum, I was reading this book that I really enjoyed, and I was thinking about it day and night. Janny was a character in that book. She reminded me of Lara somehow. :D

meansizzler
25-04-06, 17:16
well people could never pronounce my Xbox Live GAmertag properly, they always called my Sizzler, and since I always use the word mean, i just put them together, i'm not really mean, just ask my princess..hehehe

CerebralAssassin
25-04-06, 17:17
Well,HHH is my favorite wrestler,and they call him the "cerebral Assassin",so the rest is a no-brainer..:D

JACOBryanBURNS
25-04-06, 17:31
okay so like... april 3rd, 1988 my parents *gross*, and on december 14th, i was born, and they named me Jakob Rien Burns, and I hated the spelling and so I spell it Jacob Ryan Burns...thus the username...JACOBryanBURNS!

Airave
25-04-06, 17:38
I had a Horse with the name Airave
and started using it as my on-line
(and later r/l) identity, because I was
inspired by his power and grace.

And we were both sort of difficult
and have our own minds hehe.

Hybrid Soldier
25-04-06, 17:43
Not much behind it....but i love Linkin Park and they are my favorite band. (On their second album Hybrid Theory) they had the "Hybrid Soldier" on it and i thought it looked cool as hell so yeah....i thought for a change to use this as a username.

Eleanna123
25-04-06, 17:48
Just my name with my trademark 123 next to it. The 123 first came about when I first got my pc and internet and made a hotmail email account and didn't know what username to put. So I put Eleanna123 and 123 just became a habit. Kind of a stupid habit :p

Laras Backpack
25-04-06, 18:24
It's my favorite part of her outfit! :D

Draco
25-04-06, 18:26
Guess.

Croft06
25-04-06, 18:26
Didn't know what to put as a username, tis a tombraider forum hence the croft and the year is 2006, hence the 06

laracroft2122
25-04-06, 18:34
Erm........................I chose laracroft because I like the games (DUH) and 22nd is my Bday and 21st is my mam's Bday

Yuna´s Wish
25-04-06, 18:45
Well, I was playing a certain game (I won´t say which one). It had a certain character (I won´t say his/her name) and somehow I managed to create my username:D

_Mica_
25-04-06, 18:48
Mica because that's my name. :p

badboy70
25-04-06, 18:59
it was the first time i used MSN , an old friend of mine ( it is a girl , and she still is my friend :) ) helped me make my e-mail adress. we where thinking of a name and she suddenly can up with : badboy. off course it wasn't avaible anymore sow we picked out badboy70

Lara Lover
25-04-06, 19:00
I just guessed my name :p

Not much of a story :tmb:

Ampersand
25-04-06, 19:03
Well, some of my favourite words are 'tatterdemalion', 'mercurial' and 'ampersand'. I decided ampersand would make the best username, since it had a ring to it that I liked and was fairly unusual. :)

Rivendell
25-04-06, 19:04
I love The Lord of the Rings. I want to live in Rivendell, it's one of the most beautiful places ever created in literature... Plus it would make a really cool name. That I want. :p

SUGARPIE
25-04-06, 19:21
SUGARPIE was a fun name I used in a chatroom back in 2003. It was designed to take the mickey out of all those sugary names like Sugar Plum but it sort of stuck as I got to know lots of other chatters. It is/was also the name of Anna Nicole Smiths dog, a dog which is completely bonkers.

On other forums I am High_Priestess but can't change my name here and I joined in 2003 when the name was my chat name. I am not keen on the name, particularly as I was on caps lock at the time of joining :vlol:

Oddly enough, the man on the pet stall where I buy hamster stuff always calls me 'Sugar'. I did a double-take the first time I heard it and thought he knew me from somewhere!! but it's just a name he probably uses for all the ladies ;)

UNDERTAKER
25-04-06, 19:30
I like WWE and Undertaker is my favourite wrestler :)

Legend of Lara
25-04-06, 19:31
Well... my fav game is Tomb Raider Legend and my fav game char is Lara Croft and... that's about it. :tea:

JasonDavies15
25-04-06, 19:33
Jason Davies which is my real name and is my username but when I joined TRF I was nearly 15 so I put my age at the end. That's why I am JasonDavies15. Not too keen on spaces in my name though! :)

Paperdoll
25-04-06, 19:35
I needed a username for some other thing and I was listening at a song with the same name... so I guess it kind of stuck :p

Nephili
25-04-06, 19:49
I wanted something to do with Tomb Raider, and Nephili just popped up in my head, i was suprised no one else had chosen it.

killer_faerie
25-04-06, 20:06
I use this name for absolutely everything. honestly. mainly because its never occupied! ever! and if it is, i juyst put _666 on the end. i started using it about two years ago. It all started when my cousin had it stuck in her head that she was a fairy and she was flitting around the place with pink wings on being irritating. so i said- 'so your a fairy? yeah, well, im a KILLER FAERIE AND IM GONNA GET YOU IF YOU DONT SHUT UP!!!' then i chased her until she stopped being annoying. therefore, Killer_Faerie was born ^.^;;

xMiSsCrOfTx
25-04-06, 20:57
Mine was completely random. Although I regret the fact I made it in these CrAzY LeTtErS tHaT aRe ImPoSsIbLe To ReAd. :( The Miss Croft part comes from my extreme fondness of Tomb Raider, of course. The x's, well, I think there was already a Miss Croft, so I threw a couple of x's on there, and voila! :D

Lew
25-04-06, 21:01
Erm.... its half of my name :p

Mona Sax
25-04-06, 21:04
Real life nickname Mona (for Monica) + obsession with Max Payne games = Mona Sax! :D

Angel666
25-04-06, 21:20
I used to get in trouble alot at school and one day a teacher said: "Arent you just an Angel". And it stuck. :D

RoseTyler
25-04-06, 21:23
My username is taken from Doctor Who. She's a character that I'm seemingly turning into for real. :p

Geck-o-Lizard
25-04-06, 21:24
Gecko was my climbing nickname, but that was already taken...

SMSL
25-04-06, 21:24
My frequent nick is actually Cereal Killer, but that didn't work on the first forum I joined and, in between other nicks I tried registering there with no luck, I tried my inicials, completelly convinced it wouldn't work neither, but it actually did. And I was very sad, because it was the most boring name from all the ones I tried, but given I had such a good time on the boards and the nick brings me such great memories, it just grew on me and now I almost always register with it.

GodOfLight
25-04-06, 21:40
i like the egyptian god horus, but when i joined in 2002 that name was already taken. so i decided to take horus' sub-title in tr4 as the "god of light"... and that's the story :p

Camera Obscura
25-04-06, 21:45
I like kicking ghost butt in Fatal Frame. And the name of the weapon I use is Camera Obscura. :P

Tramp
25-04-06, 22:55
Tramp is the name of one of my dogs. His mother was Lady so they were Lady and the Tramp.

Kamrusepas
25-04-06, 23:00
Kamrusepas is the Hittite goddess of magic, sorcery and healing. I was reading a mythology book once [again], years ago, stumbled upon a story of her [the one where she stops the storm] and thought the name sounded cool and unusual.

lee32uk
25-04-06, 23:08
Bet you all cant guess my username story :p

lee - my real name
32 - my age (yes im old lol)
uk - my location

put them all together and you get lee32uk :ton:

ace_85
25-04-06, 23:16
My username dates back to the days when most games would only let you enter 3 letters into a high-score table. I didn't like my initials (too boring) and the first three-letter 'name' that came to mind was Ace. It stuck and I've used it ever since. The '85' is simply my year of birth :)

Jin Uzuki
25-04-06, 23:40
Jin Uzuki is one of the main characters in the Xenosaga trilogy, a game for Sony PlayStation2. Although he's just a video-game character, I look up to him in quite a lot of ways. :D This is the first time I registered with this nickname. Usually, I use in_tux as my username for almost every online dealings.

LegenDarY
26-04-06, 00:14
i like the egyptian god horus, but when i joined in 2002 that name was already taken. so i decided to take horus' sub-title in tr4 as the "god of light"... and that's the story :p

yes another horus fan.. i love egyptian mythologie..


Kamrusepas is the Hittite goddess of magic, sorcery and healing. I was reading a mythology book once [again], years ago, stumbled upon a story of her [the one where she stops the storm] and thought the name sounded cool and unusual.
what was the name of that book? it sounds really cool.. i love books about magic and witchcraft.. also the more religion versions..


But anyway, my username.. i wanted Legend (like a thousand others) but was taken.. so i made it into LegenDarY.. cause that's what Tomb raider/Lara is and always will be ;)

26-04-06, 00:16
Mine is the name of my favorite rock band (with a new single coming out soon! yay!)

Flux42
26-04-06, 01:52
I was really into Aeon Flux back in the day (I really liked the move too btw) and one of my all-time favorite bands is Level 42. I'm a big Hitchhiker's Guide fan also.

wantafanta
26-04-06, 03:14
There was a commercial a few years ago for the soft drink Fanta. It's an orange flavored drink and the jingle kept going fanta fanta dontcha wanta fanta fanta. I was singing it at work all the next day. It's a catchy, youth oriented name so I figured why not use it. Fanta is too sugary for me. I guess I like regular Coke or coke w/lime. Maybe I should've been sierramyst?

Kamrusepas
26-04-06, 03:20
what was the name of that book? it sounds really cool.. i love books about magic and witchcraft.. also the more religion versions..


It wasn't about witchcraft nor magick, it was about mythology. It's also in Finnish, and I don't know if there's an English version of it. It's a compilation of common myths from many cultures.

stereopathic
26-04-06, 06:02
mine is a word i created. the prefix "stereo-" means three-dimensional and the word pathic means "suffering." so it's dark and cool. like me.

angelika
26-04-06, 06:22
Mine is no great mystery : it's my real name;)

Maureen's name is indeed very memorable!

SMSL
26-04-06, 06:25
Maureen's name is indeed very memorable!

She was talking about oocladableeblah's.

Maureen Errant
26-04-06, 06:34
Yup, I sure was. Thanks SMSL and Angelika..........and Stereo, you LIKE Three- dimentional suffering????:cln:

Tomb of Legends
26-04-06, 07:54
Maureen yours is very memorible :)

Mine just came up randomly, I cant remember the real insperation...
And god NO was is from AOD. With those crap controls, jumping around the Tomb of Legends was a pain in the arse XD

I think I came up with the name because Legend was going back to the Tombs :) Tombs + Legend = Tomb of Legends. :)

Lone Raider
26-04-06, 11:20
I kind of have two sides, and they come out in the games I play. One, I play the Sims. Very social, all about coffee drinking, gardening, and other civilized things. Lots of Sims aswell.
The other is a loner... I shut myself in for half a year once, completely content with Lara as my only companion in deep dark isolated tombs. Just shoot everything else that moves... mine is the playing field... talk to them? HELL, no!
(That's why I don't like Z+A)

Gothlegend
26-04-06, 11:44
i dont know y i really chose this name but some people consider me goth and the legend part was because i like tombraider,silent hill,etc;) .

mekairinek
26-04-06, 11:48
I just mashed two of my favorite characters' names together. (Mekaneck from 'Masters of the Universe' and Kairi from 'Kingdom Hearts') But since nearly 95.5% of the people at forums I use this name at spell it wrong, I just go by 'Mek'.

Kamrusepas
26-04-06, 12:47

Are you referring to the Hall of Seasons? Or the Vault of Trophies?

TombRaiderLover
26-04-06, 15:20
Well, you see, I love Tomb Raider. That is how I got my username! :vlol:

JamesFKirk
26-04-06, 15:29
First - it has nothing to do with Star Trek (even that it may seem obvious :D ) or Mettalica.
It's a name I used for a person in my TR stories, Knight James Filcin Kirk, PhD. He's something like Lara's apprentice (like she was von Croy's in the light of events of early TR4, except for the unfortunate ending) and in the stories, he really cares for her (really - what did you expect? :D ). I didn't identify with him but it became a common mistake that he is my impersonation in the world of TR. Well... I wouldn't mind being him, except for several things, like he was very close to death many times, he lost a great deal of his family and the woman he loves doesn't even know about it.

Natla'd
26-04-06, 20:30
I wanted to be Miss Natla, but my doppleganger (i.e. me two years ago) had already taken it. So I went for Natla'd, which basically means I've been...Natla'd. By Natla.

scoopy_loopy
27-04-06, 10:43
that was one of the best tombs in a TR game since the original big tomb with a big drop in TR1 i reckon.

Scorpicus
27-04-06, 10:44
When I was four, I was helping my mum shop and I was moving the bananas around on the shelf and I saw a scorpion (in England this is), but I didn't know what it was so I picked it up to show my mum and it stung me. Apparently this isn't that rare cos scorpions etc. get into things like banana shipments and then are taken over to different countries.

Anywho, instead of giving me a fobia of all things crawling I now have a strange affiliation with the Scorpion- hence the name Scorpicus. But I always get edgy around bananas...

Jin Uzuki
27-04-06, 10:57

TombRaiderLover
11-02-08, 18:30
The story behind my username is extremely complex. I'd rather not bore you lovely people. ;)

Reggie
11-02-08, 18:32
Interesting to see people's reasons! :)
As for me, well its just a really straightforward case of using one's own name (my first name's Tom though which was already taken).

MrBear
11-02-08, 18:33
^ It sure is! ;)

My name is Bjørn which accidentially is also the Danish word for 'Bear' .. so, Mr Bear seemed logical :wve:

Vertigo: I like that explanation :p

Mr. Eddie: still wish I knew who the 'true' Eddie Haskell was ;) but if I watched him I'd probably accuse him of stealing your name..

TombRaiderLover: yeah, I bet it is (complex, that is :p) :D

11-02-08, 18:42
um.... My nickname is Chip so It is I Chip.

Kerrigan
11-02-08, 18:52
Wow..this is a story which dates back to the ancient times when I made my Y!Messeneger ID.:pI was searching for a fairly simple name, which would not require many other digits or anything like that, and since I was playing Starcraft at that time, and Kerrigan was the only feminine character there, which I also happened to think was an interesting one, this name came to my mind.It also proved not to be very popular, so I chose this (but still added some digits after all...).After that, I was obviously too lazy to think of other names while registrating on different sites, so I also used it here.

Indiana Croft

These threads really do pop out from time to time, I wonder how many I've already answered.. O.o

As a 9-years old, I was browsing an online Finnish-English dictionary in the Intenet and found out "sara" in Finnish means same as "sedge" in English.. Sedge(Eng)/sara(Fin) is a term used for certain plants. And my name happens to be Sara (if no one got it already :D).
So well yeah, I've used the nickname ever since (nearly 8 years! :eek:), suits me. :p

Anyways Mikkis is my nickname which I have written on my necklace pendant. I just edited it a bit to make it sound more 'cool' and added my birth year. 8 is supposed to be my lucky number as well.

Touchthesky=
Angels and airwaves-lifeline;

Within an urgent, careful stare,
I see panic in those eyes,
If I see you lying there,
hoping this was the last time.

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

When 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, I want to,
We all make mistakes,
Here's is a lifeline
if you want, I want to.

There's a field with a dream,
I watched it grow with brightest 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 coming round,
I will take you for a ride.


When 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, I want to,
We all make mistakes,
Here's is a lifeline
if you want, I want to.

LegendaryAdelia
11-02-08, 19:57
When I first created my username for the very first time, it was for a game that I play online now. The title of the game that I play has the word "Legend", it reminded me of TRL so I put Legendary. Then the name Adelia is my two name combined and I put Adelia. Ta-Da, LegendaryAdelia was created. I use it here and there when I register at other sites, but when I'm too lazy I just put Adelia415 instead. :D

something short and easy to type and remember. that also told about me. i'm kind of both, dark and light. i mean, i feel most awake at around 12am. plus my avatar reflects that theme also.

i got the actual name "Twilight" from "Twilight Town" in Kingdom Hearts 2 (favorite game series ever).
now when i play it i always think of my username XD
being that it was permanent, it took a few days to come up with it.

coolezpunk
11-02-08, 22:33
The reason(s) why I chose coolezpunk as my username:

1. Cuz I'm in a punk rock band, and I love punk rock music. :)
2. Cuz my band members and I were arguing on who the "coolest punk" was in our band. And, in the end, they chose me because they just thought that I was their coolest friend :hug: which is why I'm the coolest punk among us four. :)

Thus, my username, coolezpunk was born!! :p

Hm I read books by Anne Rice. One of her works is the the Mayfair Witches Saga. Okay, I'm going to get long & dreary :p

In the Saga, there are the Mayfair witches. The first female witch had a daughter, then that daughter had a daughter, & so on. Each of these women have magical powers. The family ghost, Lasher, wants to be in the flesh, so he needs the powers of the 13th, the most powerful, witch to get his wish. The 13th witch is Rowan Mayfair. Her character has a tragic & beautiful story, so I got hooked on the name :p

My surname and first letter of my first name.

Not that imaginative, I know.

But the theory was that if someone met me in the real world, they'd know they'd met me on the internet too.

But there are a few other buckmana usernames out there (not that many though, maybe three), so it wasn't that brilliant an idea after all.

If you say my (ugly) name, "Philip", really fast, it sounds like "Flip" and that became my nickname at school for a short while. Then I registered here intending it to be "Flip", but apparently it was already taken, so, that's how I came up with "Phlip". :)

So no, it's not a typo. :p

26-02-08, 15:10
I was a great player of Bladur's Gate 2 some years ago. And i got too atached to the game and his chars. One of the many big evils the game have is a terrible Lich that it's inprisioned in a tomb! And he try to fool your party to help him in order he can be save saying he was a pour soul that was imprisioned by evil mages....lol.
Asap as you help him, he cames out and he reveals his true intentions, he his in fact a great evil, and he will atempt to destroy all your party in a fantastic great battle.
I use his name in honor of that great battle, and to not forget never a exelent exemple of a great evil that needs to be vanquished...i think i have a kind of a Paladin/undead Hunter soul...:)

I always loved that wetsuit. Back when it first appeared in the game, you could go to Sola's website and they'd send you a free catalog. Lara's exact wetsuit was in the catalog! I always wanted to get one just as a souvenir, but they were hella expensive.

Now of course that wetsuit is discontinued and I never see them on eBay or anything. :(
