Explain your user name

There are many more members here than when I joined...Jan '07. I think I joined really early Jan...

Anyways, I wanted to know why everybody chose the names they did for this forum, and some people use theirs everywhere. Just Curious, and something to talk about.

Mine originated a few years ago as a videogame profile...mostly war games - so I needed something agressive sounding. Didn't quite work out that way, but basically I think of it as: The only type of person that can actually look into a Dragon's eye....is dead by the time he gets close enough. (And, yes...I do know Dragons don't exist...)



Anyone else?

Mine can be pretty self explanatory I guess LOL...

ACS-- stands for my high school, Allen County-Scottsville
Camaro-- the best car ever made... duh!
Chick-- because I'm a girl!
06-- the year I graduated high school

I guess the politically correct screen name for me now would be WKUCamaroChick09, but... Oh well! lol

I used to battle rap alot on text and audio battles among several sites. My best friend and former roommate when I attended ASU (arizona state) was named X-over for crossover. I was Mastamindz. A lot of people started confusing me with some guy who went professional but wasn't that good named Mastamind. I ended up just shortening it to Mindz.

It's been my nickname along with Dope Chops for probably 15 years.

I got mine from when I played paintball back 15 years ago because I was a skinny kid. 107 is just what hotmail gave me.

My other alias is flicky because while serving in the army, everyone said I looked like flick for the movie "ants life".

all thru high school and into the military, my nickname was Spike, my first car was a 78 Camaro ---> CamaroSpike23. the 23 was a number designation from a cypher game me and some friends came up with in high school, where you take the letters of your name and convert them to numbers then add them up and do some other stuff. 23 is also my favorite prime number...yeah im a nerd. but I'm a nerd that can kick your ass.

and if you look close...Im not who you think I am look closer.

well, me and my two older brothers all have the initials of D G. I guess I could have gone with DG#3 or DGthe3rd but DGthe3 sounds better. Anyway, since I used it for my hotmail account I've used it everywhere else online, other forums, games, etc.

I was thinking up personalized plates for my last 4th Gen and my wife came up w/ TAG UR IT. But, in Texas, we can only have 6 characters (it's going to 7 now but for law enforcement only, I think).

So, I shortened it to TG UR IT. For the boards, I just toss the A back in.

z28camaro - I've had 4. I know quite a few people that incorporate what they drive into their email addresses or user IDs. So that's what I did. Not very original but it works.

2/4/71 - Date of birth.

I've used this for probably 4-5 years now.

I think mine is pretty self-explainatory,

It is my email as well, I use my personal email for business related sometimes so I wanted it to be something that won't change and is professional.

Muffdiver69@hotmail.com was not working for me anymore. haha jk

Like someone else mentioned, I use what I drive. Not very creative, but it works. I had a '99 Silverado before, now I have an '06...by not using the "year moniker", I don't have to change anything. Since I plan on always having a Silverado in my garage (next to my 5th Gen of course), for winter driving and haulin' stuff, I won't have to change it.

Again, not creative, but effective and efficient.

When i was a kid i joined up to play soccer. My first day at practice noone knew my name but i was wearing a batman shirt and the coach just called me Batman all the time. So for the 3-4 years i played soccer everyone knew me as Batman. I just did a variation on it cause i like how he is called The Dark Knight better than Batman.

Mine was my characters name in everquest for about 6 years, quit EQ but the name followed.. all my online accounts and forums revolves around it.. so about 8 years later its to much hassle to change to something new.

P.S. Diarmadhi was originally taken from a Melanie Rawn series, It was the title of a race of ancient sorcerers.

Wow, I always read you as "Dig the 3" ,as in you really like the Big 3 (Chrysler, Ford, and Chevy). Learn something new every day!

Mine is actually a song title from a band called Atomship. It just sounded so different and unique (plus my previous moniker was Rings_around_Saturn, way too long), and the song/band's not too bad either.

I came up with mine when I created my Ebay account after getting my '64 El Camino from my wifes grandmother. I got the car and was going to be buying loads of parts from Ebay (never happened) and it's kinda just stuck with me. Here's the car by the way.

I chose SoFlaZ because I live in south FL (but I'm in Orlando/Central FL now for school, lol) and I was so set on getting a Z28 after I sold my old porsche, so it was going to be SoFlaZ28. But it happened to turn out that I could not find a good deal on one after months of looking and ended up with a Z24 Cavalier instead, which isn't a bad car at all. It was good I never added the 28 but someday I will.

Ellwyn was my favorite character I created/played in White Wolf's original World of Darkness games (Vampire:The Masquerade, Mage: The Ascension and Werewolf: The Apocalypse) a number of years ago. Basically he was/is an Egyptian Werecat Mage.

When I finally got online I had to come up with an ID on the spot so I decided to use 'Ellwyn' and just added the ever popular 'X' to the end of it.

I've been EllwynX for near 10 years now. I use it for everything I do online. And I plan on getting it on personal plates for my new Camaro.

FYI it's pronounced EL-WIN-EX. (I know one person that always thinks it's EL-WINKS.)
