It's an internet username I started using when I was about 10. I don't remember where it comes from. I also use ClockworkTopHat (a reference to my two Empire of the Dead factions) or IcarusInFlames.

mine is xofox mainly because of the fact that when I first got on the internet (when I was like 4) I had no clue how to spell one of the coolest thing at the time (will not divulge) so I settled for the next best thing. I just haven't ever changed it because I was too lazy and it sounds sweet.

Mine's a nickname my dad had called me, and the 2 and 1, put together, makes 21, which I assume that people know why it fits then. (Plus just 'blackjack' is normally taken, and the seemingly random numbers makes it more likely to be open.

There's also the entertaining side note that a blackjack is another name for a nightstick, or baton. Add that to the fact that I plan on being a police officer, and this name fits even more.

Because I could. No one expects the Squid.

"At the point in time when bullets can pass through the interdimensional walls. When firepower takes up the entirety and eternity of space and time, all beings stuck in a neverending life and death cycle as bullets recover and destroy their bodies in quick succession. No one is able to think about anything but the sheer force of the bullets rapidly flying literally everywhere in the materium turning the warp itself into nothing but a sea of semi-automatic weaponry.. Then there will be enough dakka. Or, at least almost." -The Glorious God Emperor of Mankind

Or I received a greasy miniature in an unwashed Lurpak tub in the mail from eBay, and after declaring "Ew! Buttery commissar!" aloud, thought it was fun to say...

Every time I see your name I first read it as '2black2jack'

Imagine that you’re sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don’t get any. So you say “I should get my fair share.” And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, “everyone should get their fair share.” Now, that’s a wonderful sentiment — indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad’s smart-!@# comment just dismissed you and didn’t solve the problem that you still haven’t gotten any!

The problem is that the statement “I should get my fair share” had an implicit “too” at the end: “I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else.” But your dad’s response treated your statement as though you meant “only I should get my fair share”, which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that “everyone should get their fair share,” while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out.

That is why we need feminism, and why I am not simply egalitarian.

I know I need to do a spring clean of my mind when I find myself being disgusted yet entertained when I read '2black2jack' haha.... aha... ha.... I need help...

My username is a combination of a nickname 'Nini' (NOT 'Ninny' ) and 'Illuminati'. Coined it a few years back after I needed a new, unique nickname that wasn't my typical variation of 'Death Knight' or 'Doom Hammer'.

I accidentally created my username, but my other name on Black Ops III is "Scubbywubwub".

Everyone's been killed by a man named Soulreaver1014 or Blacktemplar420....but when Scubbywubwub gets in the top leaderboards, it's hard not to smile.

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...

As my full name is Christeena , and from which the nick name derived would be Teena. I would go for Teena.

Mine's 'whispered' because I actually joined dakka with the intention of not telling my boyfriend I was interested in gaming, so I could learn some stuff on the sly and surprise him next time he brought it up he's on dakka too so I assumed it was the best way to do! He knows I'm here now though

Mine is my company name. I needed to include PIG in there because I am passionate about potbelly pig rescue and pigs as pets. Most people don't know about pigs and I advocate for them. I even donate a set amount every month from my sales from my store.

Like a few others, my name is from an RPG back in the day. I had an assassin character and the GM decided it would be darn entertaining to turn the guy into a women (present social issues excepted). So I came across a word that I thought sound like it could be a pretty woman's name but is in fact the genus with some of the most toxic and deadly mushrooms known.

On a side note it made my character's job rather easy so the GM got frustrated and turned the character back into a man.

This is my first time touching alcohol since my breakup(see my other thread about breakups) But yeah I dont know what we're talking about in this thread but go pens and as a side note go steelers in the next season!

Just realized this is the wrong thread

My name is Tony. Not Anthony. Not Antonio. Not Anton, though that is the name my mom WANTED to name me. I'm just Tony. And since I have to say it so much, I figured saying Just Tony instead of just Tony works better. It also works to my simple and humble nature.

Was playing the Goldbox game of "Curse of the Azure Bonds".

He was a character name thought up on the fly for a Fighter-Magic-User.
For some unexplained reason he would slowly regenerate between battles mid-way through the game (A game bug? bitten by a vampire? no clue...).
He could never die completely.

Due to some random event, he was the most awesome character I have ever played: when a game creates some unforeseen "magic" of it's own I like to take note of these strange bits in life.

<edit> It would be amazing to see any of this series modernized (again), I am constantly grateful for developers who dust-off adventure with good stories, character development and progressively less hostile user interfaces.

Talizvar is not comparable to Minsc, but I think he would approve (or at least Boo would).
