EZA: Username list! Explain your username!
Sorry for the delay!
@ThyBlight Added...kind of. That is quite the origin story. Phew.
That took a while. Note to self: Don't put that off for so long next time.

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.

Count_Zero last edited by
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
Crepe last edited by
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.
E_Zed_Eh_Intern last edited by
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'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.
Jillliann last edited by
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.
Burup last edited by
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
PepeElToro805 last edited by
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.
RARMSTAR last edited by RARMSTAR
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 last edited by
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.

well... back in the day, when I had to chose my first username entering the new world of the internet... i chose the name from a character out of a tad williams novel from my book shelf in front of me and over time it just stuck with me.
Dott Winial A. P. last edited by
I'm South Korean but when I met person I always tell them this as a my name. Shortened two A. and P. is my actual last names, but I don't wanna reveal it to anyone. Even for South Koreans.
Origin of the name is simple and not simple short story. There was a white English teacher who call me a Todd, or Toad when I was a primary student. I really don't like how it sounds, but I didn't know how to change the situation, because I don't speak English that time. So I just simply change the place of 'D' and 'T'.
Anyway, Nice to meet you. I'm Dott. Dott Winial.

Mazer last edited by
I used to do chatroom roleplays back in the days of AOL and Mazer was one of them. I eventually had him become lead in a series of fantasy stories I wrote. 23 years later and it is still the name I use online.
