How did you choose your nick?

Postby raz25 » Wed May 12, 2010 7:22 pm

Hey! Just as the title says, how or why did you choose your nickname ?
I thought it would be fun and we could get to know each other a little better, don't you agree? :)

I'll start. I chose raz25 because 'raz' comes from my first name Răzvan (damn, my parents weren't creative at all, very popular name in my country), and 25 comes from my day of birth. I know, nothing interesting. Your turn!

Well my nickname is the Element

it is a mixture of 2 reasons

1-I Was A Huge Fan of The Song "Elementary" By Spider Loc

2-The 4 Elements (Water , Fire ,Earth ,wind) are the most important things of life , if anyone misses , the earth cant be lived on

When i was Younger , I Had Much Self-Esteem that Reached EGO , so in my opinion

i was so important to myself like those 4 Elements

So i became , Te Element

Note : My Friend has put the Song Elementary as a special Ringing tone When I call him

I chose AvatarX cause I used Avatar as nickname many years in irc channels.

It first came to me late 90's when I read Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, a cyberpunk novel. I added X in the end because X is a reserved letter for both Mathematics and Unix/Linux :)

nur4bayern...nur, German for only. You get the rest.

I've never been a fan of any other club, period. Like I've said before, I've been following Bayern since my childhood days of the late 1960's.

To do a play on words from an old Southern American saying...If it ain't Bayern, it ain' sh*t.
“Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans win.”

So, apart from the advice "Do not make a tattoo with your gf name" there must be another advice "Do not choose your nickname based on your gf" :)

BTW L1 can mean L-one = Lone(r) or (A)lone :)

My nick Aequitas came from two sources.

I originally started using it when i was playing high - level competitive counter strike / counter strike source. (Yes its a computer game :mrgreen: ). While i was traveling and participating in tournaments / representing my country/sponsors I happened to watch the original Boondock Saints with a few teammates at a laptop outside the tournament venue, I was a kid so the movie was extremely entertaining for me and name stuck.

The 1987 is the year i was born in. :mrgreen:

Ylonen -> Singer of the finnish band The Rasmus. I'm a huge fan of them even though I don't like that gothic look they used to have. But they have really good melancholic and melodic songs.

Xabi -> My name :D

Haha wow. I did not think there would be another CS/CSS Scrimmer/Competitive player here. Yeah i played in the UK scene for a year while i was in Italy studying abroad. I got to go to the I-Series tournaments which was an amazing experience...my team placed top 16 out of 128 teams haha. When i get back to the states i think I can play in Europe easier 80-110 ping.

SK were champs back in the day. Like Fnatic is now.

Ok so I'm not the only one who got a nickname from a shooting game :D

I used to play Quake III Arena some years ago and also participated in many clan wars. Listening to the location of the enemy is a big part of the game and I was one of the best at tricking my location and killing someone when they didn't 'expect' it. Hence SilentStrike.

I used to play CSS as well for a bit cus my friends were really into it. Some had over 130 hours of CCS on steam meaning almost 10 hours a day!!! CSS never gave me as much joy as Q3 though, so last year I did do some more Quake scrims and fun games but now shooting games are over for me :)

So am I the only one who doesn't really have a real reason behind his nickname ? I was just sitting here in front of the screen, trying to be creative, when it simply hit me. MrLinky. 8) :mrgreen:

Why don't we have a picture thread though, or are you all just shy ? :P

Would be nice to have a face to go with the username.
