    We all have usernames (Its kinda required) on this site, but what do they mean? Why do we choose these words to represent us? Im kinda curious about a few of the user names around here (You know who you are) so I thought this was a better way of finding out, the other option being of course to hire several hundred detectives to make psychological profiles of everyone (Which would be difficult, seeing as the lack of info to go on).

    I guess I will start with mine. When I got a Xbox 360 from my brother, the username on it was Slayer which I really like for some reason, so I left it as that, and about 2 years ago I was trying to think up a good username, my game of the moment was Final Fantasy X and I remembered a minigame in it called Blitz Ball, and there you go, SlayerBlitz. If there is another meaning to it, I honestly do not know at all. I really thought it was a unique name until I made my youtube account, and found a TON of other people called that.

    Dr. ROCKZO is from Metalocalypse, a TV show most of you have seen that I'm just really into, I don't know why the Rockzo is all caps, it's just how I made it when I first came up with the alias. Unfortunately, it was taken on YouTube, so I roll with Dr. ROCKNZO, a neat little tie in to the fact that I'm from New Zealand.

    I needed a 4 letter name for smash bros. So Spud was chosen for no particular reason.

    Then Spud appeared to be already taken in nearly every online game, so I added Dr.

    Alyss was a heroine in a book I used to love (still do)

    It was taken in some online communities so I made it Alyssea

    And now it is just Aly because Alyssea sounded too fairytaley

    Long story, and I think I've told it before. But I have a lot of time so here we go. Both of my names were actually a little lost in translation between Norwegian and English. :p

    First I used BreadHeadFred, a name which I'm ashamed of but I think most people know that used to be my username anyway. Fred is the common nickname of my first name, BreadHead is a silly insult in Norwegian. It rhymes, so I used that as a temporary name while playing with my real life friends.

    But when I started playing more with the Control Point people and eventually TF2Maps, people didn't understand the point of my name, so I changed it to MrMuffinMan. Then I changed it to Muffin Man because everyone and their dog uses the Mr prefix for some reason. However, the name didn't come from the song "The Muffin Man", in fact I had never heard it the English version (in Norwegian he is just called "the baker"). Instead, I got the name from a childhood friend of mine who used a yellow knitted chicken (named Mr. Muffin Man) to annoy me when he was feeling hyperactive on sugar. On a few occasion he kept me awake entire nights.

    So basically my name is Muffin Man because I had a very weird friend.

    The result of a username brainstorming session with a friend, I used to be maggot.
    Some time after I found out it was a real cake.

    the (game) Return Of The Incredible Machine

    Although I always preferred the original, its abbreviation (just TIM) was obviously kinda too common =P

    I have had tons of usernames. When I registered here I did it with a crappy username... And than one day I just decided to call myself Engineer. And yes, it is my favourite class.

    I use this name for the simple reason that it is always available.

    It came from a clown in some kids tv show I saw many years ago :p (I omitted the last word because it was too long)

    Well mines is a long one. To start I went with the nick Cocodaconman, since "Coco the con man" Is what my Grandad used to call me when I was wee. I had no other nicknames to use so it kinda stuck. Later on in my gaming times I got into music, specifically punk rock, and a band called Green Day. :D One of their songs, Saint Jimmy, really spoke to me, that whole album kinda described life for me at that point in time. So It became Saint Jimmy The Conne Manne, with added gentlemanneness! and for now its just Jimmy, as everyone calls me that or Saint. :D
