So Dav... ahem, Bartel Smiley: wink inspired me to make this post... I think it's cool to hear other people's stories, plus it builds a little camaraderie amongst the group. How did you come up with your name that you use as for forums or in games?

For me, every MMO character I've ever made has been called Magnus or Allewyn.

Magnus - I saw Magnus ver Magnusson; one of the worlds strongest men in the ESPN strong man competitions when I was a kid, maybe 10. I thought the name was both awesome and hilarious, so it always just stuck with me.

Allewyn - My middle name is Allyn; so I added some letters lol... can't really remember exactly how I picked that exact spelling. Nonetheless it's stuck for about 10 years now Smiley: lol

Parathyroid - Vit D and calcium are awesome duh...

My forum name came from The Transmigration of Timothy Archer, by my favorite author. My FFXIV name, Lucia Vandal, I just chose because I think it sounded cool. My other character's name is Aldo Riot.

Lol, it's ok. I really don't care if people use my real name or my in-game moniker. Amazingly, Bartel was a randomly generated name from the FFXI engine. Prior to that, I always used the name Seth for my characters in-game, based on the Egyptian God Set/Seth, the God of Wind, Storms, and War. I just always liked that name, but it was already taken on my server by the time I started playing (PS2 release). So I did about 100 random names until it came up with Bartel. I liked it, and the rest is history.

Yeah, I realize it's a pretty lame story. Smiley: lol

I just got a kitten and named him ray goulet. I'm a fan so I'm most likely going with that this time. In XI my mithra was named urahara( I was into bleach lol) so I might merge the two names.

Hahaha actually that's pretty awesome! I like the name Bartel... I would have never thought it came from the random name generator! Every time I tried that thing I got some absurd name like Aristocarposjoshima lol... Bartel though, that's a pretty solid name!

My name in XI, Skinwalker comes from various Native American myths. My 1.0 name, Akua Aumoe, is Hawaiian for midnight goddess. Appropriate for a keeper of the moon and myself being from Hawaii. My XIV name is up in the air right now; either Honey Badger or Delmonte Niblet.

My name in XI was Pangaea , the name of the super continent before they split apart. And in XIV is Ivo Thais ...Ivo is a "Cocteau Twins" song, and Thais is a "This Mortal Coil" song. My forum name here was from when I was trying to come up with a user name for something else (can't remember what now) and no matter what I tried using everything was already taken, so I took two random words and put them together for Marsupial boy.So I used that sometimes , wish I could change it now though. And no I'm not Australian.

My usual nickname for games is Teras wsich in my language it means monster (Τερας) but some times it is taken so I go with my second nickname Teravibe. It doesnt mean anything as far as I know I took it from a rock festival in my country.
Sometimes I use more when I need more characters like in eve online that I wanted to make a pirate char I named him Barbossa BLack.

My in-game name these days usually contains Saint or Ascalon and Saint Ascalon for XIV. Ascalon is the name of Saint George's lance that he used to slay the dragon and i'm looking to play a dragoon. :)

I've used the name Damien in some way since I was about 12 or 13. Before I found the beauty of Starcraft or Diablo II I used to Role Play in Yahoo Chat like it was my MMO (OMFG Cheetah Chat FTMFWOMGBBQ). I met a girl on there and RPed a lot with her, eventually we had a non existent child after a 24 hour gestation period and she named it Damien. Oddly enough I had never really heard the name that much and thought it was pretty awesome. I RPed a bit as the "kid/adult/wtfever" and eventually adopted the moniker.

The Tweens are truly an awkward time, and back in my day we didn't have Bieber's to love/hate and focus our angst. Thank god for FFXI.

I'm a huge animal lover so all of my names have a animal as part of them. My very first name I created was Nghthawk, this was back when I first started using AOL. The NGHT part came from me actually being up real late at night (3-4am when I was a younger). Plus it was easy to clone names in AOL so you could fool people in thinking you were someone else just by looks, not so much friends lists. For example NIGHTHAWK & NlGHTHAWK look the same but are spelled differently with a lower case L and capital i.

Odds are if you see a forum name with a animal as a part of it, it's going to be me. Gaming wise a lot of people use the same so I have to get creative when making those.

Well, my name is Louis, and some super clever bully realized that Louis sounds like "Lou Is" and said "Your middle name should be ***. Get it? Lou Is ***?"

This caught on with some people with variations like "Lou Is Ugly" or "Lou Is Stupid." When the original X box came out and I had to choose a name, I said "You know what? Haters gonna hate, Lou Is Cool."

In-game name is just a combination of that at the movie title Coolhand Luke, because I wanted to be a Pugilist.

WFOAssassin is the first name I used in an online game that meant something to me. It was in Socom 1. I was approached by WFOBigDaddy who like my gun game and asked me to join the clan. I had no idea what I was getting into but since that day I was hooked on online gaming and the atmosphere that a good gaming community can make and the friends that you can make from it.

:WFO: = Wide Fu@%en Open We were a sweet clan and new how to bring it.

Assassin is the name I have always used because in life and in games, you never see me coming. I'm quite, shy, and methodical. Its fitting.

So, I kept WFOAssassin for all my stuff, not only for nostalgia but incase I run across any of my old friends that would know me as WFOAssassin. I have come across a few friends in random online games because of it and I'm happy that I did. I am still good friends with those people now.

Back in the old NES days and some SNES RPG's, we had the old 4 letter names going, so for a long time I went with Seth, even though my name is Nick. I think it was Breath of Fire that started that tradition for me, even though I was a HUGE fan of Shining Force and the guy's name was Max. Max just didn't seem powerful enough for me, but I suppose if my name were Seth, I'd think differently. I started writing a fantasy book in high school that an old floppy disk ate when it crashed (I'm kinda old), where the main bad guy was named Medieve, a play of medieval (necromancer of course, a year or two before Warcraft 1 was released and I've been called a plagarist ever since :D). The Hero I named Draven Knightfall, clever only because I decided he'd fall and be redeemed Vader-like. I thought I was being inventive, but really just copying various Star Wars references at the time. I still love the characters I made back in the day though, even though I can barely remember them anymore, so I keep Medieve as my single name handle, and Draven Knightfall when I can afford a surname.

My WoW name was/is Baatin. With most other MMO's I've played it's stayed the same way. Baatin was an artist that was well liked amongst the Detroit underground music scene. I liked the spelling with the double vowels and it has always sounded like a fantasy world based name. However, with the first/last name of FFXIV I might be headed in different direction. Already pondering a new name.

As far as ACLinjury, the short version of the story has to do with sports related injuries.

Before I started posting on forums, FFXI Warrior was pretty much the loljob. It was slowly shedding the misconception of being just a subjob (Thanks, BradyGames!), and the /NIN thing was just starting. Well, by that time I was more accustomed to using a great axe, which by the majority of people meant it was the inferior weapon. I picked "lolgaxe" as a parody of the attitude of the time.

Atkascha is the name of one of the royal families in Final Fantasy Tactics. I read the in-game lore years ago when the game first came out. I thought the name was unique-sounding, so I used it for my first FFXI character. My XIV character was going to have the first name Yoshiyuki, which is the name of one of Cloud's katana-looking swords in FFVII that increases in power when party members are KO'd. But, surnames in XIV have to be three letters long... Let's just say my usual name doesn't fit this. I'll have decided on something else by the time the beta starts up again.

When I first started FFXI all the names in San Doria looked french kinda, so I just made up Lebarge. I've also been using Urzol a lot, which I made up off the top of my head as a name in EQOA. When I was playing UO (in the dark ages when the internet was opossum powered) I picked Rand from WOT, but everybody and their mom had that so I quit using it altogether.

That's about it, it was my wife's idea when I was trying to think of a name. When I started playing other games I shortened it to Wint, but I usually have to revert to Wintaru since Wint is sometimes taken surprisingly.

My last name is Toufar (Toe-far), but people ALWAYS pronounce it (Too-far) when they first see it. When I was playing junior hockey, it became my nickname. "You went too far with that one Toofar!" was a common joke. When I started FFXI, I named my Taru Toofar, then when I got tired of him I made an elvaan and inverted the name to Rafoot. As for my forum name, a few of my names were taken already, and I happened to be listening to the "I kick yo dog!" prank call and just went with that.

In FFXI my name was, "Jacobson." Which is my real last name. I tried to use it for Xbox live for Halo 2, but it was taken. I then put "Gold Jacobson" because my spartan was gold colored. I've used it ever since and my spartan remains gold still in Halo 4.

Some of the stories here are good! well mine is a plain jane story. Back when it was time to usher my dad into the "WORLD OF EMAIL" I had to set up an email addr. that he could (me 2 so I could help him) remember. So since it was a shared account we took our nicknames and put them together. "Bibi" me (and yes I'm a guy) and "Book". so our first email was bibibook@......, well I ran with it and added the 1 so separate our self's later in life. hence bibibook or bibibook1 or bibibook-one depending on game requirements for names. On the old FF games it was just bibi.

I always thought it was just a different way of spelling El Jefe...I think that should be your story Smiley: sly


That's what I thought it was too Smiley: lol

1. Ronyn -Derived from the Japanese word Ronin. Masterless Samurai. I was gonna go simply for Ronin but it was taken. My gf at the time then created a character named Rownyn.

2. Shadowfax - Thought it would be an appropriate name for my mule/alternate character.

3. Barretjax - Character from Sword of Shannara

Now to my new goodies for last names.

1. Olorin - The name of a particular wizard from a relatively famous fantasy book. I wonder which?
2. Laiquendi - Meaning "Green-Elves". Lore from my Tolkein Bestiary

So, for FFXIV, I will either be Ronyn Olorin or Ronyn Laiquendi. I really like both.

As for my forum name... "Do you know Cho?"

I am surprised and disappointed. All this time I thought you were a pokemon.



Haha sorry to disappoint. No Pokemon here. Never even seen it, played it, heard it, or traded it.
