How did you decide on your username?

Mine is a nickname I had back in school; 'greebo' was a ninties word for one into metal, but my love of indie pop, and the tight jeans that went with, was misdiagnosed as being 'greeby', and somehow 'noggin' got tagged onto the end, so I was greebynoggin, greebynognog or just greebynog. People in my home town still call me that. I don't know why I chose it, I don't really like being called it...

Mine is the name of the Master of my home-brew Space Marine Chapter.

As a rule of thumb, the designers do not hide "easter eggs" in the rules. If clever reading is required to unlock some sort of hidden option, then it is most likely the result of wishful thinking.

I was named after a fake MTG card that I made in photoshop and tried to use in a game once.

People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

Mine doesn't mean anything, it's just what I always use.

I wondered about that.

I considered using the name protonfury, but I would have been copying someone off of a different forum, so I just stuck with what I always use.

Mine is a title for a specialized wizard type I created for a wargame that I've been working on for years. In the game there are Portals (Like in Stargate) but their is no physical substance to them, just a circle of runes spinning in the air. Only these wizards have the specialized training required to change a portal's destination and defend it from being forcibly linked to an enemy's portal. Long before DakkaDakka, I went through about two dozen before I decided to use it because everything else I wanted was already taken.

I joined the military to get chicks like my older brothers did. All the ladies called them heros, so I called myself the Sexiest hero. Yes it's cheesy but it got me my wife and she loves the name. The 90's were good for cheesy names.
(Irony is, I wasn't half as cocky as the nick named suggested, and spent most dates acting cool on the outside but panicing on the inside.)

Mine is a mispelling of the eastern philosophy term atman. First day of class no books yet and going by the professors pronunciation I wrote ahtman in my notes. Then I found out that it was actually atman.

Mine is because everything else was taken on other forums and sites, and while thinking of a different name I had some lego sitting on top of a CD burner on my desk so I just glued the two names together to create legoburner.

Kilkrazy is fairly obvious for a wargamer.

I chose it when I was playing arcade games in the late 70s. Back then you could only put a three letter string into the game, because of memory limitations, so I used Kil for short.

Kilkrazy fits in eight letters which is still a common string length limitation in software.

“We may observe that the government in a civilized country is much more expensive than in a barbarous one; and when we say that one government is more expensive than another, it is the same as if we said that that one country is farther advanced in improvement than another. To say that the government is expensive and the people not oppressed is to say that the people are rich.”

One day I needed a username. This was a number of years ago on some random forum. I kept trying to think but everything was taken. Then I just kind of thought to myself to get me thinking "What am I typeing on? A typeline... Typeline". And it's never been taken since.

Once upon a time, I told myself it's better to be smart than lucky. Every day, the world proves me wrong a little more.

I've been using Arctik since about '98. Started as Arctik_Wolf, went through the 'made of symbols' phase, then lost the dog.

Firangi is my general business title, derived from the Persian/middle eastern 'farangi' and similar (basically meaning a foreigner), hybridised with the Old Norse 'Væringjar'. At least that's how it works in my head.

Go ahead and read the fluff (I mean history) of the Varangians. good stuff.

Francois Auguste Victor Grignard was a French chemist who discovered a well known reaction that creates carbon-carbon bonds using ketones ( among other things ). He also apparently worked on detection methods for mustard gas and made phosgene during WWI, and shared a Nobel with Sabatier for the Grignard reaction.

Basically I needed a name for a MMO ( DAoC if I recall correctly), and I had been studying that evening so the name sort of fell out. I've used it since but apparently others had the same idea because I recall seeing at least 20 grignards that played WoW.
