Why did you choose the username you chose?

i know ill get some sarcastic comments or similar, but please do give some reason as to why you chose what you chose as a username.

Me, ive told the full story enough times here, usually to be ignored.

so im gonna give a shortened version as to why i chose my username,

For me:

Long story short, i got into some trouble with the law. ended up serving time in Juvy.

shortly after my time in Juvy i had found this site and made an account with the name of my old email account. about a month later i grew tired of my username, as it didnt really mean much to me.

so then decided to make a new account. the one i use now,

seeing as how i had technically been a convict(since i was a minor my record got sealed) i decided to make something more personal. went with konvikt(switched the c's with k's) then added my age at the time(_17).

thus konvikt_17 ws created.

For those curious, i am willing to tell my whole story. you need only ask.

-

So whats the story behind your username?

Edit: spelled "username" wrong once.

Edit 2 3 and 4: some mispelled words edited

woah, deja vu; i swear you've made this exact thread before

anyway, i got my name from a line in cygnus x-1: "on my ship the rocinante, wheeling through the galaxies...". rocinante is originally from don quixote, which i started but never finished--but i first heard the name from that song

#7 Posted by Shadow4020 (1969 posts) -

It's really generic. "Shadow" because I must have thought it was cool or something and "4020" is the address of my childhood home.

Stranger seemed like a good word to describe me since I'm a loner and I like the number 36.
#18 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

I wanted some way to show I played a variety of different games, but somehow I managed to come up with this dumbass name when I still thought replacing "e" with "3" was somehow cool. I hate it so much now I would pay money to change it.

#23 Posted by 187umKILLAH (1345 posts) -

Named after an album I liked by Eazy-E called '187 um Killa' (lots of Dre, Snoop, Death row disses) but spelt it with an H as I also liked Ghostface Killah and Killah Priest, silly thing is now I rarely listen to rap but I just don't care enough to create a new account.

#24 Posted by Wolfetan (7522 posts) -

Real name. Except its Ethan Wolf. Not Etan:P

If you read the short paragraph within my profile, then you would understand why I'm called "Decades Of Gaming"

My favorite game is Metroid and at the time of making my account I was in love with Metoird Prime, I needed a number after it though so I went with 55.
#30 Posted by CHOASXIII (14628 posts) -

I'm not gonna explain the whole thing because it's a tl;dr but basically it came from a couple friends from another website years ago.

It sounded cool at the time.

Don't really have a reason, other than I couldn't think of anything else at the time.

I wanted a username that (i thought) would be generic on a gaming forum.Since CoD was very popular back then,I chose it.

About a month later,MW2 was released.Everyone started hating CoD,and I didn't like it either.

#40 Posted by Justforvisit (5047 posts) -

Because my philosophy is, every thing, be it good or bad, will come to it's inevitable end some day, may it be nations like the egyptian pharao era, the roman imperium or our modern day and world we live in, 10.000 years from now on and the life of planet earth will be pretty different again, if we're still inhabiting the planet by then.

Anyways, in short, we're just for visit on this planet and should use our time to the best we can. I'm still wasting more than enough of it with videogames :P

And, JFV kinda makes an awesome licence plate tag in some racing games, especially THEN the name kinda shines out a bit x)

#41 Posted by chaplainDMK (6841 posts) -
I really liked Warhammer at the time, and Chaplains in that game are badass. And I messed up an old games name (MDK - Murder, Death, Kill). Kinda boring and teenage-angsty, but I like how most people call me Chap, makes me feel like I'm British or something.

#44 Posted by The-Apostle (12190 posts) -
Was heavily into fantasy wrestling and my main character was The Apostle so I've been using variations of that name ever since. I used to have a different name but managed to get GameSpot to change it to my current one.

Mine is the name of two of my favorite band's (Our Lady Peace) songs put together, which was done in a live performance (called Naveed/Life).  No I am not persian or anything like that, contrary to Naveed being in my name :P.
