How did you come up with that name?

I'm fairly curious as to how some of you guys got those names. Some are creative, some might hold meaning, some might just be random. But I wanna get to know those stories for uhh... Science. Doesn't matter if your name is creative or not, just drop down your story on how you came to hold to this name! Original or not~

Here's my story:

Back then when I used to play WoW, I didn't really care about anything. I was fairly young & my humor was all over the place (it still is, but I control it now.) My actual name is Ramzy (some of you might already be able to tell Ramzy is Yzmar spelt backwards) I lived in Queens, New York which is a pretty loud place to be, between the random screaming, police sirens & other loud noises coming from the ambient city outside. Back then I led a guild in WoW & played other games with a group of friends. & they would always hear the police sirens & screams when I turned my mic on (It didn't happen all the time, but it was often). So that small group of friends said that I had an "Evil side" named Yzmar. They're views on it was I would abduct/kidnap random people,  lock them & torture them in my basement.

Before you ask. No this is not true. Have I thought about it? Maybe I shouldn't answer that LOL. Back to the story, their proof for this reason behind Yzmar was that the screams where the people being tortured, & the police sirens were cops trying to look for me. This was even funnier when they found out that I lived right next to a court house & a police station & cracking jokes like "He's literally right under their noses". This finalized Yzmar & its pretty much a golden joke within my little group of friends. They would make jokes like "The great Yzmar strikes again" Whenever they hear police sirens or see missing ads around the area.

So that's my story on how I got the name Yzmar.

Tell me about yours! I'm curious~

*Again I do not meow or kidnap people. pls believe & don't call the cops.

_Yzmar

I go by Rose or Rosemary. Rose was my favorite person in this world's middle name, my grandmother. It is sometimes hard to get the name so I do have to sometimes make adjustments to the name.

Mine is simple yet has a lot of meaning/depth.

Aries is my Zodiac sign. The positive and negative qualities are literally an exact representation of my personality. I can be cool and quiet as the ocean, then explosive and ruthless as a volcano. So I learned to embrace and master these qualities.

I can write a whole essay about symbolism and meaning of a persons zodiac sign. Not everyone's is accurate, however mine happens to be.

Well that's a short summary of my story.

Honestly, I've always went by one name(rather not say what) for years but in the last 3 years my former name started getting alot of unnecessary unprovoked hate making it difficult to find groups or play online co-op games. So I spent time working on a new name and came up with several. I've been going by Malver or Torvan Krex the most for the last 2 years now with no problems.

My name is Andrew Muir and the reason why I came up with the name Decarna is because I grew up angry at the world. When I was young I got bullied fiercly for liking gaming at the time. I was picked on for being small, weak, and insignificant to them. I was smart...smarter than all of them when I was young. Because of that I never fought them or responded. One day however I snapped and hurt my bully to the point of him needing hospital care. Upon seeing him the next day I was full of regret for not thinking about his situation in his household as being an abused child. I was full of hatred without understanding so I swore to myself I would never do this again. I started taking up video games and fell in love. I learned about mmos and decided to think of a username. I made Decarna which is poorly derived off latin meaning Against Flesh. It meant to me that I would not live my life thinking with instincts to hurt but to care about everyone and always try to understand their situation, and be compassionate. I would put all my anger and frustration into this name so I can live in both the gaming and real worlds as someone who you can confide in, trust in, and care for.

My name came from a character in Witch Craft Works. I like the way the name sounds and she's a pretty cool character

Um when I was 16 I had been saving up money to buy a car and I bought a year old used '95 Mitsubishi Eclipse

I loved the car and at first thought about using the name Eclipse but I thought it sounded a bit too feminine so I changed it to Ecliptix. I've used Ecliptix or Ecliptic in every game Ive played except maybe 1 or 2 since UO.

Ive gone by Ecliptix for around 18 years now. Sadly when I first started using it I couldnt find it anywhere now a lot of the time its taken on forums etc.

The name Ataxias inspired by Ataxia i came by the name when i played Rift. I switched servers and the name (BloodFang) i was using at the time was taken so i thought about it for a bit and i figured the named Ataxias would be good for a rogue type charter and I've used it in every game since

Don't feel bad bro, I go by Roojie because it was a typo someone made trying to tell me I was the worst person on Earth. (I was going by Rookie at the time) I thanked them, changed my name and I've had it ever since.

 

Frimber is a shortened version of Frimbertrips- the made up name I gave to my Laptop after I realized it was kinda derpy.

D:

Ender's Game? Ender was a boy genius who was was bullied in school and then retaliated by beating up the bully. His reasoning was "by showing superiority now, he has prevented future struggle."

Your story reminded me of that character is all :)

My name came from back then when we played around with my friends about what would our japanese names be and I ended up with Tsurata, because I really liked how the name sounds and it translates to Agony in english, pretty badass huh? :D
