This is so we can stop the confusion of try'n to figure out "how the hell did he come up with a name like that"

I'll go first :D

My orginal name was the_HUNTER, and it was based off my old RPG character. it was a good name, but I wanted a name that fit me as a person :D

I picked phatcat, becasue I like kinna like furry art, and anime cat girlz :D also becasue I'm a "hefty" guy :D. I phat means "pertty hot and tempting" but I used it to be funny, and its not as "hard" as fat. its pertty orginal, you don't see a whole hell of alot of phatcats out on the net :)

I met this guy named Bluesniper. he wanted my name. I told him my password and he told me his. we swapped characters and I grew on to the name "bluesniper"

Eyes-Only
23rd May 2001, 08:01 PM
Ok it comes from my favorite show (dark angel) it is one of the man characters code name (i guess you could say) the characters name is Logan Cale and my last name happens to be Cale and I liked "Eyes-Only"...plus I can have those eyes on the boards....fits the name and I like it

EndlessInfinity
23rd May 2001, 08:32 PM
My name has a much less interesting history...

I used to just use Infinity (and Infinity383) but the problem was that there were so many Infinity's out there, that the name wasn't that original anymore. I just tacked on the Endless because it sounded rather interesting.

I've used wayyyyyyy to many names in my gameing history
Omega 1
Smokey
OmegaStorm
BattleMaster
Infinity
Infinity383
EndlessInfinity
Terror

ElectricSheep
23rd May 2001, 09:50 PM
Used to go by Recon54 way back when I was an AOLer. Thank the lord those days are over. When I first started playing INF, things were pretty much up in the air as for a handle. I don't know when I started using ElectricSheep, but it just kinda stuck.

In other games, I've gone by Marsallis , GreenBob, Recon54, and on occasion Dorko.

Jarvis Hamilton
23rd May 2001, 10:16 PM
I was reading a book and saw the name Jarvis. So I put Hamilton on it and made a character around it. So I use this pretty much everywhere. Here are my others

Janus

ILoveInfiltration

(I only use the second one when playing counter strike)

I Uninstalled CS though. It doesn't work on my computer. I could care less.


My current mission is to turn my CS playing friend into an INF player. The goings are rough, he says he doesn't have enough hard drive space.

Another question: Who uses their forum name while playing INF?

Thrash123
23rd May 2001, 10:30 PM
I used to be Thrash... but then people started confusing me with Thresh. So then I changed it to Thrash123, the 123 denoting how many 90 deg. turns to make an 'a' look like a 'e' :)

deathren
23rd May 2001, 10:35 PM
well, I first thought of my name while playing Diablo one.

I thought "Death" might be nice, but that was a little....
so, i thought and thought. Finally, i thought DeathREN, because there is someone i know who i really despise named Ren. so it basically means Death to Ren

Whered Demonshadow come from? I have no clue.

We did this a lil while ago.

Hey Fuct, I saw that shirt on the long-haired duder in The Beach. :)

Oh yeah, Ballistophobia = fear of bullets, i.e. I don't get shot. :)

I do...in fact Zundfolge has become my web "alter-ego", so I use it outside of gaming too.

Most of the world knows me as Zundfolge :eek:


I also think Ballistophobia has one of the coolest nicks out there ;)
(I wish I'd have thought of it)

Ballistophobia
24th May 2001, 10:04 AM
Yeah, if you click my sig you can see that I use this pseudonym practically everywhere. :)
I also used Melophobia (fear of music) for Nappy before I uninstalled that s<b></b>hit. :)

Thanx for the love Zundy. :)

BTW, these are still free for the taking. ;)

Coitophobia = Fear of coitus.
Eurotophobia = Fear of female genitalia.

Waaaay back before the dinosaurs finally died out (the mid 70s), I saw a HORRIBLE bond film, the one with the submersible lotus. I was so appalled even as a 3rd or 4th grader, that I decide to write my own spy story, about an OLD russian spy who was famous for his exploits in WW2 (or as he would refer to it the 'great patriotic war' no I didn't know this when I wrote the story). But at the age of roughly 80 he was taken out of retirement and sent to america to disrupt our water supply, because everyone else at the KGB came down with a nasty flu bug. ANYWAY this great intrepid soviet hero does everything wrong, and I never finished the story, his name by the way was...von Whistlewing, Otto von Whistlewing. When I joined aol back in 91 or 92, there was a limit of 6 characters for your screen name so I just used his initials OVW. And since aol will be raising their rates ONCE again, if you want to get a hold of my as OVW, you had better do it before july. Unless you send it to my mac.com email address.

OVW

Pretorious
26th May 2001, 11:04 AM
Here goes:

I like watching all kinds of movies so my Dad recently turned me on to old horror films. We watched Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein. Then we came to the Bride Of Frankenstein. Oh man that movie is so cool. Anyways one character in the movie was Dr. Pretorius played by Ernest Thesiger. He was a mad doctor and I found him so damn cool. So in UT and SoF I used to go by AssForker, got that one from the Simpsons. After watching the movie I changed it to Pretorious, I added an O since I thought it looked better. Voila, thats who I am today and the quote in my sig is from the movie too.

Kuroshio Apocal
26th May 2001, 02:57 PM
Originally, I just used Apocal (short for Apocalypse) because of a six character limit in the game I first played online (Raider Wars). Later on, people said it looked like Armor Piercing .50 caliber, which is very strange since I never thought of it that way. A few years later I decided to add in Kuroshio, Japanese for black tide, since I have been a member of a Japanese/American clan for over 18 months now.
