Jacko
So I know if this is a really silly topic of discussion but I gave it and I wanted to hear other users thoughts. So where do your nicknames come from? I invented my nickname "Jacko" from my first name which is Jaakko and begins with the letter J. The extension of numbers comes from my birth year which is 1990 and though it sounds silly with my nickname it helps other users at recognizing me cause there's a user called Zacko. smile.gif I find it often very hard to invent a catchy nickname starting with the letter J.
Massacre
Good nickname with a J: Jackoff, or Jerkoff. Very punk rock.

I'm Massacre because, well, just take a look at my police record. I'm also known as Warlord or The Warlord in other circles, and that comes from Warlord of the Wastes, which isn't a nickname so much as a title that I gave myself as a result of my spending well over 1000 hours playing Fallout 3.

But anyway a fruitful way of spending those hours of playing the game if you managed to boost your stats and the title. And your avatar goes very well with your name and I'm guessing it's from Fallout.
Massacre
It's not from Fallout, but I do wear a similar-looking outfit in the game. Also, I love gas masks.
TreeFitty
South Park. 'tis all.
PabloHoneyOle
This name was given to me by a user on this site that's probably not around anymore. Can't remember who it was, but I fucking love them.
Massacre
Pyro, nigga.

Yes, Pyro, may he rest in peace.

Do you mean Pyrohazard or is there another member with that nickname?
TreeFitty
yes, pyrohazard/pyrocy as it is now.

He was on not too long ago. Just snuck around for a little and then left.
Massacre
Yeah, it's Pyrohazard.
The Awesome One
My name was orginally therealcbc. I changed it to Captain.Charisma, which is borrowed from WWE wrestler Christian. A few weeks ago I watche a hitler film, and I came up with my new name, Kaptain.Kuntz.
cuda is your boi
im dick because people bullied me in 2005
Ex-PS Fanboy
PS Fanboy comes from the fact that I've never owned another system apart from Playstation.

Armored Whore comes the fact that I am a whore and I like Armored Core.

Fag comes from Stoic, and was stolen by D-O.
Marney1
My real name is John Smith and I was born in Ohio, hence the name Marney1.
Edgecrusher
My original name on here was Edgecrusher, which is the name of a song by Fear Factory who are, coincidentally, my favourite band. My current name is the same as my PSN name which is based on my real life nickname; Tiny. I think people call me Tiny because of my short stature and slight build... tongue.gif
Heartless
Heartless was just one of about a dozen random names I used to defeat the various bans I would accumulate on the old SA boards. Fuck em, I won in the end.

Doesn't that sound familiar...
Jimothey
Jimothey came from a stoned/drunk night many many years ago, and it's just stuck with me. People call me Jimothey in real life, so much so that people think it's actually my real name.
TwoFacedTanner
Two Faced Tanner was a mission in Grand Theft Auto 3 where you had to kill Tanner from the Driver series, which I was also a huge fan of.

I also go by IanCredible. Its just a play on Incredible. I thought of it in class one day and made it my myspace name, after that everyone called me that, and I started using it as my gamertag and user names and what not.
ViceMan
I'm... sure I posted in this topic? But apparently not.

My online nicknames all ultimately derive from my love of Vice City. Back in my Jedi Academy playing days when I was still a noob I called myself Darth Vice. Then I joined a clan, but my name and the clantags wouldn't all fit, so instead I called myself ViceMan. I also use ViceyThaShizzle which is just a gangsta-fied version that I found quite humourous back in my gangsta rap listening days.
cuda is your boi
i was darkruler a very long time ago because i was young and dumb.

i changed to a bunch of cuda variations because that's what my friends know me as since i was about 8 or something, i never understood why tough lol.
eventually i related it to barracuda online and that's it.

dick is to remind me of the years of internet bullying i suffered at the hand of the bastards of this forum, i still remember crying myself to sleep after a night of abuse by that kamikaze Mek.

edit:
i swear to jesus, i don't remember posting that shit above.
Massacre
You rule dicks. Much shorter version.
DiO
I jack members real names off facebook.
bOnEs

Massacre
Marney.

err, simon is psy's irl name iirc
OptimumPx
OptimumPx doesn't mean a goddamn thing. smile.gif

I was trying to think up a new username several years back and sitting in front of me was "Optimum" brand CD-R's. The 'Px' was just off the top of my head.

There used to be a space in it (Optimum Px) but when I joined some site or another that didn't allow spaces it got left out.
asthenia
Don't lie. It means Optimum Pixels, you fuckin' geek!

So, my name comes from a blink-182 song, the song touched me at the time and has stayed with me since. Something about being a teenager made me initially type it as _-AstheniA-_ ... and it's come a long way since, AstheniA, AsT, Asthenia., Asthole... with the popularity of the name after the song became a bit more known, I had to add things on sometimes, ie. my first DeviantART account was AstheniaProductions, and more recently it's become Astheniarocks as a failsafe. I know what the word Asthenia means, but it's my handle, and it still actually means quite alot to me.

So much that I have it tattooed on my chest.



I'll post pic proof that it's me if you want, a pic with my face, but that pic shows it best.

What, you went to all the trouble of getting a tattoo and forgot to add the "Fuck..." part at the beginning?
Massacre
I need to get a forum-related tattoo. Fuck Ast works.
River
Its me last name. (and wtf, ghey ass title someone gave me do boy? uhh.... not)
Darth Sexy
I was 15, and I honestly don't know where the idea of Darth Sexy came from. I assume it's because I'm so damn pretty.
asthenia
Do it Massy!

I can always have it added.
Massacre
Probably will do it. Thought about getting the iGTA.com logo, but who knows when Psy will make a new site. I'd hate for my tat to be outdated. Fuck Ast is forever.

Fuck Ast eternally. And internally too.
TheAnalogKid2112
I'm a die hard Rush fan; The Analog Kid is a song by the band and 2112 is both a song and album by the band.
Jáger
I'm a huge Metal Geal fan, and Frank Jaeger is one of the best characters in the entire series.

Marney, you change your name every 25 minutes, but I don't see you post here every day. tongue.gif

and I see no connection with your real name and Marney.




i chose "demon" because demons fascinate me and I like to watch fiction on tv.

Ast, how do you explain yor current name "Spy"? What font is that? What did you do? bored.gif
Marney1
*Facepalm*
DuPz0r
Bushka was a hybrid nickname from school. My last name it Bush, and my friends just came up with it. They still call me it now.

DuPz0r came from an online game. I found a way to duplicate rare items and i exploited it, and i became known as the duper lol. So again a friend randomly called me dupz0r one day and it sounded unique and stuck. So it was originally pronounced: dupe-zore, i tend to pronounce it dup-zore these days.
NCP
I used to do politics and was a commie back then.. Neo Communist Party member no 1315, some thought it was a misspell and said it should have been NPC, but meh..http://www.ncpn.nl/ Communist party nowadays, i'm no longer a member tongue.gif

Glad you cleared that one up, I always had this pic in my head.

Bulkstack
Originally i was thefirm (probably the worst name to grace these fine forums) i was 16 and i thought The Football Factory was the greatest film in the history of mankind which is about a gang of football hooligans or firms as they liked to be called.

Then i was rebranded bulkstack by the lads at work because i weigh about the same as an average mountain.

Because I said my real name was John Smith, I was born in Ohio hence the name Marney1.
You said you didn't see the connection between my real name and my online name...

Which called for a *Facepalm* moment.

What's the connection? Are you high?
Marney1
wacko.gif ^

Marney is a nickname I've always had because most people couldn't pronounce my surname properly. Online it's Marney1 because when I went to register Marney as my PSN it was already taken.

Now leave me alone..........please.

Oh reverse psychology, I get it...

So how do you say Marney in Liverpoolish/Scouser? Is it "Maah-Knee"?
