Why did you pick your username?

Post by Holy Crap »

speaks for itself really. i've always wondered about many people why they chose the username they did. so...well, tell us!
as i've said before, mine is because of Holy Crap Productions, which is the "company" name i use for my animations.

There was reasoning behind all my past usernames (twasit, Tombo, Spaceray and Xenon09) but I've forgotten most of them.

My current one, which I've used for more than seven years, comes from the Henchman800 Robo-Pirates.

My name comes from an ancient myth, about a man which first letter begins with "J" and adds "man" to the end because he is a man. :mrgreen:

I think you misspelled: "Jman that's fantastic, your name is mythical, I will give you all of my tings!"

But yeah, I made that up. :mrgreen:

My name came out of nothing, or to be more specific, there once was a trend on RZ involving the use of 'Ray' in your username. Luckely 'New'' wasn't used back then.. :p

Mine's my IRL name and my surname's initial, and I'm sticking with it because I make too many new usernames. 8)

That was one of the biggest problems with usernames, particularly in 2004. Everyone was called "...ray" or "Ray...", it was a crazy challenge to tell members apart. That's one of the reasons I changed my name Spaceray to something more original.

Your nickname is Tobbe because your real name is Torbjourn. Or something like that. I can't remember.

That is why I added "...man" to my username. I felt different from everyone, until some dude named Dman joined. :pascontent:

Do tell, I love poking fun at bad fanfics. Also, be lucky that you never read My Immortal, perhaps the worst fanfic ever written for anything.
