EZA: Username list! Explain your username!



  • Longview - Back in 98 I went round a friends house and entered my first chatroom, when it asked me for a username I picked Longview because I was a fan of Green Day at the time and its stuck ever since, used it on pretty much every format but usually I go by the name Longview01 because the name Longview is already taken



  • I was like... 9yo when I came up with mine. I wanted something that includes my first name (Kevin) and sounds techy.

    one day I saw the word Keyboard written on a piece of paper while the little tail of the y was covered by a pencil... and that's the moment my username was born :)

    Keyboard minus the tail of the y = Kevboard



  • I have an ever growing argument with my friends about how great pineapples are and that they make all other foods better by adding them. But pineapples is a long word and so I can't use it for usernames very often, so I adopted the pokemon version of pineapples. On top of that I always though knights were cool (and the best faction to choose in For Honor) so I tacked that onto the end.



  • Final Fantasy XII was the last game I was playing before I got a PS3 so I went with an item from the game when trying to think up a PSN ID. Got used to it and didn't mind using it elsewhere.



  • Sorry for the delay!

  • It's a character from Futurama. My real name sounds vaguely similar, and because I was/am a massive Futurama fan, when I was at uni people just started to call me Kif. Variations from friends and partners have been Kifster and Kiffy.



  • I'm a filthy weeb



  • Back in High School I read "Neuromancer" by William Gibson, I thought it was really cool that one of the book's protagonists shares a name with me (I won't say who). I went on to read the next book, "Count Zero", which introduced me to the concept of an internet handle, leading to me taking the Count_Zero handle (and CountZeroOr on boards where Count_Zero or CountZero is taken).



  • @Count_Zero is your real name "Lady 3Jane Marie-France Tessier-Ashpool" cause if so, that would be pretty sweet



  • Aside from crepes being delicious, and one of my favorite breakfast foods, I like to keep all my handles as short and sweet as possible.



  • I sent an email to EZA when they first started saying I liked what they were doing and would be happy to help if they needed it. Understandably, they didn't reply. So as an in-joke with myself type jab at myself, I called my self EZA intern. Side note, I'm not as lonely as that makes me sound.



  • @Kif Added! ...Kiffy. lol

    @Filthy-Weeb Added! How many anime tattoos do you have though

    @Count_Zero added! Mostly.

    @Crepe added! Short is a good way to though. I don't think I have ever eaten a crepe before. huh

    @E_Zed_Eh_Intern Added!...you okay bud



  • “I am Jack’s trigger and Fontaine’s tool, so Atlas can rise before Rapture becomes a fish tank” (Not an exact quote from the game BIOSHOCK)



  • alt text

    I've had my old username (DeweyDefeatsTruman) since I was in like, 10th grade, but I've never once liked it. Only stuck to it since at the time I couldn't think of anything better, I didn't like the idea of having different usernames everywhere I went, and after a certain point changing them all would have been a bit of a hassle (or outright impossible in the case of PSN, for example.) But the other day I finally just said "screw it" and honestly I'm glad I did. Hanabi has a nice ring to it I think. A lot shorter too so it isn't a mouthful.



  • At first I was wanted to use my name, Jillian, as a username. I thought it was boring to just put my name so I just added more letters and behold! It became Jillliann. It's pronounced like my name.



  • When I first started playing WoW I was looking for a good name for my gnome priest. At the time I had recently read a book with a gnome character ("Dragons of Autumn Twilight"), and I tried to recall her name - guessing, and ending up on Burup.

    I, of course, was wrong... the character's name was actually Bupu, but Burup has stuck lol



  • My nickname is Pepe and while working at a restaurant one of the owners would call me Pepe El Toro because I was built like a defensive tackle. 805 cause of the area code i live in.

    Later I found out Pepe el Toro is a Mexican sports drama film from 1953.



  • Love that there's a thread for this! :):)

    I started up my Youtube channel in 2013 and needed a channel name. Ended up taking each of my initials - R A R M - and throwing the word 'star' on the end. From that day on, RARMSTAR was born! :L

    It's kinda cool how the name has managed to stick around - I do a bunch of stuff with the teenagers/young people in the community where I live through my church and a lot of them know me as RARMSTAR or RARMY.

    (Ps: if you search RARMSTAR on the internet it asks if you meant 'Farmstar', a kind of tractor!)



  • kAb is a truncated version of my handle from all the way back in 2002. At the time I had just gotten into soul calibur 2 with kilik being my main character. I registered on the soulcalibur.com forums with the handle kilikAbeast.

    This name was a two headed monster for me. Kilik was my new obsession in calibur 2, but I was also concurrently playing final fantasy 10. If you recall, the blitzball team from kilika was the beasts. Hence kilikAbeast was born.

    I used that handle for some time but as I started to get more and more known in the calibur and tekken community people would always shorten it to kAb. It just kinda stuck from there.



  • My username jeweloflibra is very simply that my name is Amber which is a semi-precious jewel and I was born in October, hence I’m a Libra.
