Some people used to call me panda because I’m mixed race (black white and Asian like a panda) but the name panda is too simple so I changed a letter.
9 year old me was like, let's use my nickname, and add something cool at the end? Like Ra, the egyptian god! Young me was oblivious to the obvious pun.
its a sailing term, barely used as its a name of a hole in a sail, i changed 1 letter and thats also how my dog used to be called (rip) the dog was also called after this sailing term
to be precise a whole with metal around it in english its called Grommet or eyelet here's how it looks https://sailrite.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/2013_may_2.jpg
I made a YouTube channel called Guinea with some shit before it, not gonna say what (reached 3k subs before I deleted it :candle:), Guinea because of my Spaghetti and Meatball heritage. As a couple years went by I didnt like having that other part in my name so I changed it to just Guinea, which has since been changed further (just not on this site) to Gvineja (Guinea in serbian, it just looks cool) and zvcgna or just zvc (too long to explain)
Many years back I was playing a game of Civ V with a friend, and before the game started I was trying to think of the dumbest sounding insults I could call him. At one point, I said "YOU'RE A SCRUBASAURUS REX" and afterwards thought "I actually like the sound of that."
Never changed it because I wanted to stick to one alias, otherwise it would probably be different by now.
"Blank" is a team from the anime "No Game No Life" where the plot revolves around them never losing a game, so I thought that would be a cool name for an online alias.... Sadly I cannot say I have upheld that title xD
thats a pretty new anime
That's a fat Kappa cause i've been waiting for season 2 for 3 years FeelsBadMan (season 1 came out 2012 but i started watching in 2014)
edit: Also it's pretty good anime for any anime watchers out there
I'm a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (don't judge me!), and each season of the show Buffy and her friends must defeat a villain that they euphemistically refer to as the "Big Bad". Hence the name.
Years back used to love pasta (since moving from parents to living on my own). Now not so much but still dig this nick.
I'm a self proclaimed weeb, I'm black, and I love Dragons (even got a tattoo of one on my arm). Kuroi Ryuu means black dragon, but since it was taken I just added the two jersey numbers I wore while playing hockey (96 and 25).
I know, I'm a bucket of originality eh?
I loved kiwis so much back in school that people just started nicknaming me Kiwi, pretty standard tbh
Honestly, I used to play Cartoon Network game creator when I was really young, and my username was always Pixelfish. It's stayed with me forever
Mine comes from my favourite progressive album, Involv3r (pronounced Involver 3) by Sasha.
Launch this at night chilling somewhere and you'll feel the power my dudes. Tracks 7 and 8 are it for me. https://youtu.be/YMHQ31waQ04?t=2294
Crazy how music defines a part of so many people here, love it.
Music was the influence for most of my aliases. The current one has been around for a while tho: When I was 15 I basically only listened to obscure post-rock bands, one of which was Yndi Halda (meaning Enjoy Eternal Bliss). I shortened it because no-one would be able to say the whole thing and voilà.
Trade Prince Gallywix was the first Hearthstone legendary card I got.
I like how Gally sounds a little girly but in actuality it refers to a fatass goblin.
I am a really big Minnesota Vikings fan, a few years ago their slogan was “show your horns” because of the horn of their helmet. I used this and picked “Lord” because it sounded cool. My name also works both ways because I really got into metal music, so that works too. Either way, pretty badass I think
Went on holiday to Australia and fell in love with the cutest animal on planet Earth
I used to play football "competitively" when I was around 11-12, and since I was a really small and quick kid my teammates used to call me Frog. Before OW I used either Frog, or Frogie, then when OW came out I wanted something new so I just typed frog into Google Translate, switched the language to Japanese, and found out that apparently Frog in Japanese is "Kaeru". I liked it, so I chose it.
I used to be a little criminal rebel in my youth and since im half italian and gioventu means youth in Italian plus it sounds badass, I kinda liked it and have this nick for a long time already.
One day i decided to switch my minecraft name to Tim, since it was already taken i decided to go for TlM instead (L instead of i) so that it looked like Tim. Since then i have used tlm as my alias.
My name is Paolo and when i played at startegic games (like AOM and Imperium) i always wanted to wrote my name so i started with the p but then i got early tired of witing so i push the letter near the p: o and i. So poi.... after some years , with this nick in my heart i add the year when i born so 1998 results: poi98
my parents gave it to me
After years of nicknames with the same prefix, I wanted a change. I wanted something short, pretty, easy to say and easy to remember. I was thinking of "yui" first but it's a pretty common nickname, so I chose "nei" instead.
I thought it was easy to say but people still pronounce it "nah-ee" instead of "neh-ee" sometimes ;-;
if you hadn't told me otherwise I would have pronounced it "nigh"
I normally go by FrozenGoggles. That nickname was a combination of two nicknames that I had in high school, Iceman (given to me randomly from a camp) and Goggles (I used to wear sports goggles all the time). I changed Iceman -> Frozen cause it sounded better and squished the two together. FrozenJackal (my bn) came cause Goggles couldn't fit.
bweesh is a completely made up word that was created by me and a high school friend of mine, supposedly it's on urban dictionary but I never associated any meaning with it, just use it as a name
Edit: pronounced bwEEsh, hard E sound - I get a lot of "bwehsh"
im a BIG fan of king of the hill
also bill is my real name
i just hit my head into keyboard and got some random retard name that i started to use.
a boy called me this when i was 15 and i had just gotten my invitation to gmail
(oh yeah, back then you had to be INVITED, i was so cool)
too lazy to change it
so many regrets
Puma as in Puma D Ace from One Piece he is also named portgas d ace, depends on the translation, sometimes im named Puma Del Ace because some iterations are always taken in games -.- :/
I use a lot of aliases some have fun stories, some don't.
Generation 1 came from a Mike G verse on a Denzel Curry song. He says "I am genesis 1, this is god's work done". I thought it was cool to call urself Genesis 1 so I started saying Gen1 and then I was like what about generation 1 too. That's actually what I refer to myself as a professional as well.
We used to play a lot of Age of Empires at LAN parties too and we made a rule that every game, you HAD to make a new name and so I have a ton of hilarious ones from that. Same with TF2. The Buttholes, Cock Beard, A Warm Golden Shower, A Cold Golden Shower, Red Rocket Boy, The Male Anatomy, USSR's Grundle, and so many more completely ridiculous and extremely offensive ones.
