The mystery of the user name
« am: 3. Apr 2015, 21:04 »
I started thread concerning our usernames (we can say nickname or simply nick, too).

Some nicks are very short, some nicks are longer. Someone uses two names. We can see combination of the letters with numbers.

Some nicknames are quite logical. The name of the famous person or character. Numbers as well - for example the year of the birth or current age.

But exists many nicknames, where is problem find out ... What does your nick mean?  8-) And why have you chosen such nick?

I hope that it will be funny thread  :D, and on the other hand quite interesting thread. Such nick may reveal some information about user.  ;)

Well... when i started on that site in 2009 i wanted a LotR name... was pretty uncreative (and still am in regards of Usernames :D)... wanted a bad guy... without numbers... Shagrat was available... took it^^

then for my others... that'll be fun... (only those that i didn't use only for Christmas... well maybe besides one and btw user names not necessarily in chronological order)

CM Punk - Straight Edge Savior: I am a Wrestling fan and straight edge myself

Blackbeard: when i joined the FdK (PotC) Mod i wanted a fitting Avatar.. and Blackbeard was an interesting Pirate.. he got used under value in the movie but still... unfortunatly the mod died since we lost our skinner and then also Souls-of-Blacks (Mod leader) PC broke down and he still has no Windows on it again

The Joker: one of my favourite Villains... he's crazy... he was voiced by mARK HAMill... nuff said (can't spell Mark Hamill without Arkham)

Alexander Andersen/Anderson in the english: i'm a Hellsing Fan and Andersen imho is an interesting Character and i didn't want to use Alucard since he is used by Reshef and the Major is not really fit for the MU i think... not yet...

The Norwegian Blue/Der Norwegische Blauling: i like the Monty Python Sketch
Grand Admiral Thrawn: Star Wars Fan and Fan of the Old EU (RIP :( i still wish for games in the "Legends universe"... e.g Strategy (EaW was great) and RPG... but EA...)

Undertaker - Lord of Darkness: see CM Punk and imho the Undertaker is the greatest Wrestler of all time... REST IN PEACE!

and then the Christmas Nickname (but also in my Avatar list) the Reichtangle/Das Reichteck (a joke that works in german and english... Rechteck/reichtangle): I like Polandball and especially those with the Reichtangle (http://i.imgur.com/58Ah8M2.png)

and then as a little extra: ModdB... the Major... Hellsing villain... totaly insane... not your standart "blabla4. ReichblablablaForTheFühr erblabla" run of the mill Nazi-Villain... great speaker

and i guess i'm done for the moment

It was at the Survivor Series that the dark path of the Undertaker was born. It seems like an eternity ago that the demons of hell passed judgement on the mortal world and unleashed a creature of the night so powerful that the mention of it's very name sends shivers down to the spines of who oppose him

Hey,
After I read The Hobbit I was pretty exited about Smaug and got into this whole Dragon thing (and Fantasy literature in general... before I just knew Harry Potter :D ). I read everything about Dragons and Tolkien that I could find and once I discovered a bit of Sindarin, I created the name "Lócendil", which means "Dragonfriend". This preference for Dragons isn't very unique and quite common for fantasy fans, but otherwise I would have searched way to long for a nice name... and I did not want to just took a name from a random figure, which were created by another.
Several times I thought about changing my name, but I think it's senseless and really annoying for the other users (isn't it Shag? :D ). Everyone here knows me for four years with that name and I don't think I could find another one that is worth the change now ;)

Somewhere we had such a thread in german, but I think it's lost in the depths of the OffTopic Forum :D

Edit:

I don't know shit about animes, but I always had exactly that impression of the major :D

When I first entered the modding scene in the Elvenstar forums way back in the day, I just wanted to call myself "Sauron" because he's obviously the coolest character in the story :P Turns out that username was already taken though, so I tried tons of different variations like "The Dark Lord" before finally arriving at "Lord of Mordor", which thankfully nobody had claimed yet. That was before the release of The Battle for Middle-Earth II, but it's stuck with me ever since. Even though here on Modding Union, I was the third user to register an account and could have chosen whatever I wanted [ugly]

Well,
maybe I should continue.  :)

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...." existed and still exist RPG schools on the motive Harry Potter. You can study in the Hogwarts, take classes, send owls to friends, etc.  8-)
I had interest about teaching there, but one of the conditions was, that you can not have the real name from the stories.
But I wanted some name either way ... suddenly I found the name Tiberius Ogden, completely unknown character.

Zitat
Tiberius Ogden was a former member of the Wizengamot (described as an elder member), but resigned in protest due to Cornelius Fudge's appointment of Dolores Umbridge as High Inquisitor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the continuing campaign by the Ministry of Magic and the Daily Prophet to discredit Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter.
http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Tiberius_Ogden

So I used such name and I was surprised that it worked.  I was there for five years and it was wonderful experience. In reality I was only one person (from around three hundred persons), who had real name from the book.  :P

These days, I have quite nice and much more interesting nicks for example on Lotro online, but TiberiusOgden was the first nick for me and his character little bit corresponds to my nature.  ;)

My username? 'Die Walküre' is a famous opera of Wagner, part of the cycle 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', and it literally means 'The Valkyrie'; it is also the composition of the legendary and famous 'The Ride of the Valkyries' theme  :)


Not only is Wagner one of my favourite composers, but also I think that his Art (because it is not 'only' Music) expresses all the 'spirit' of Neoclassicism and Romanticism of the Europe of that time, and somehow combines them, looking for a model of Eternal Beauty that never withers (what the Elves are, I think).

There are also some common elements that we can find between Galadriel and the mythical figure of the Valkyrie; they both aren't goddesses (or Ainur in Tolkien's Universe), but they are ethereal and holy creatures, both warriors and healers/guardians at the same time.
The Valkyries also have the task of caring about the spirits of the dead soldiers, and Galadriel sheltered the reborn Gandalf in Lothlórien and clothed him in White.

There is also an episode of Bugs Bunny, 'What's Opera Doc?', meant to be a tribute/parody of Wagner's operas, in which there is an iconic scene of Bugs Bunny/Brunhilde riding a white horse on the notes of Wagner's Tannhäuser, another wonderful opera of Wagner  :)

I wrote ''Galadriel sheltered the reborn Gandalf'', but that doesn't mean that Gandalf actually was reborn in Lothlórien :)

From what I know, speaking about the lore, Gandalf effectively dies after he slays the Balrog, but his spirit was revived and made come back in the World much stronger by Ilúvatar itself, because there are too much important and big things that even the Valar can't do (for example, crafting the Silmarils, reshaping the World, or, in this case, reviving completely a spirit of a Maia).

Said that, Gandalf awakens, forceless and weak, in one of the peaks of the Misty Mountains; then Gwaihir arrives (probably sent by Galadriel herself) and takes him to Lothlórien, where he is sheltered by Galadriel, clothed in White, and indicated by her as the new head of the Istari and the White Council :)

My username is a play on LittleKuriboh who does the Yugioh Abridged series

I had to make a username for a Yugioh site and I was pressed for time so I picked LargeExodia as an opposite to LittleKuriboh then I made some good friends so I just ended up keeping the name

bookworm1138, the one i use on this site, is based on my love of books (i watched Lord of the Rings first, but i didn't really fall in love with it until i read the books), and the number is from George Lucas' THX-1138, which gets dropped throughout the Star Wars movies as an "easter egg"
