Ok so we all know that when we do ANYTHING on the net YOU have to have a user name and password. What makes you think of a user name...some are really out there but some are so simple. HOW did you come up with your user name?? I am and have always been pimpsterque when i first started i was pimpsterque99 then my id got stolen from yahoo and i had to recreate and then i became pimpsterque999. I got the name from an old co worker who used to accuse/tease me about pimpin out the cooler where we worked. Meaning because i didnt stock it while i was working and waited till the end of the shift to do so he would laugh and say HEY STOP PIMPIN THE COOLER I GOTTA HAVE STUFF TO...lol lol lol man that was a fun time i know you guys dont see how funny it was it was just a moment in my life i guess and it sort of stuck with me.

GREAT discussion. I really appreciate your contribution to the discussion also because it's neat to hear the story behind your username. Mine is similar in that I have a basic ID/username that I have for whatever website I join. It's easy to remember and keeps things simple. "JJ4Ever" originated because "JJ" happens to be my boyfriend's nickname; however, his name and my name both start with "J's," so it's him and I "4ever." Kind of cute, huh?

Thanks so much for best response! Wow, very exciting. I'm glad I got to come back to this discussion and remember it because it was a lot of fun finding out about why everyone chose their particular username. There's always something behind it. Thanks again and take care! Thanks for a great post.

I'm basically pretty boring when it comes to my user names. I try to use the same one for most sites I join, with a few exceptions when I don't want to be spotted so easily. Usually it's variation of my real name and part of my birthday. Easier for me to remember I guess. Other times though, like on this site, the name comes from something that interests me at the time. In this case my name comes from a character in Greek Mythology.

I've been using raijin for almost 3 years now, I got it from one of my favorite rpg game on PS1. I used to go by the name ravage (which used to be a decepticon from the cartoon series Transformers), but I find it kind of "off the season" already!LoL But I also have another user name, which I mostly use on social sites, I go by the name, thor_mentor because I like using words that has lots of meanings!;)

I choose scizophomiya because its related with my idol. I took scizopho from Gerry Halliwel's fist album called scizophonic. If i'm not mistaken, it means crazy of/because of sound (well, sumtin like that^^). MIYA is shortened from Miyavi, my fave J-rock singer. So, scizophomiya = crazy of Miyavi's sound/voice.

When I played Half-life/counterstrike I used a username with de_ and some other word like shotgun, sniper, bazooka, usually depending on my favorite weapon on that map. I changed it to da. It just means "the" of course. And then fatalgigabyte sounded like some kind of virus. Considering size stealth, that'd be one ineffective virus lol.

My username is Buttercup26. I took the name Buttercup from the cartoon Powerpuff Girls. I simply love that cartoon and also have their dolls. Ironically, my boyfriend used to call me that. LOL

I got the name or screen name should I say babykeka80 when I was like 16. Baby was just a cute 16yr old girl kind of word. Then comes Keka...which my real name is Kara but when I was trying to learn it as a baby I would say Keka so that was my nickname for a long time and occassionally I still hear it but when I do I know you have known me for a long time. The number 80 is the year I was born. I just have always used that name for my sites because I have always been able to remember it. Its amazing. I am not exactly a baby anymore and I hardly ever hear the nickname Keka but keep the screen name for some reason. Especially with me being on kinds of different sites I will always at least know my long in name.
