It's kinda a weird story... I had to do a school project on a person from WW2, so I chose Rommel. I ended up getting a really high mark, and passed S.S. (my worst subject). So in short I chose this name to honour the great man who helped me pass my worst subject. :p :p :p

At first I was gonna use Erwin Rommel as my name but I forgot my password and had to start a new account.

Darth Rommel sounds better anyways don't ya think?

Boba Rhett
07-26-2001, 06:37 PM
You guys chose your names? Jeez, I was born with mine. :p

Seriously though, I'm a twin. It was decided that the first baby born would be named Rhett and the second named Chase. I'm pretty glad I was the first. :D

As for my screen name, *copied from earlier post*,

Well, it all started a few years ago when I came up with Star Wars names for everyone in my family.* Boba Rhett sounded cool so I stuck with it and so it became the name I used and still use for everything.

* = sad ain't it?

Thus concludes this post. :)

I got Rogue Squadron when i was 15 years old (wow, it's been a while) and so i chose Rogue15 for my name at www.roguesquadron.net (http://www.roguesquadron.net) WHICH IS THE BEST DAMN SITE ON THE NET YOU BEEEEEPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i also have 2 other names i use:

Garindan is one of them. I was into rebellion at the time and Garindan happened to be my favorite one to use in espionage, and without him, the imperials couldn't have traced the droids to the falcon.

Torment is the name of the my favorite RPG. It fits well, since I torment people in and out of games hehe. Many peeps have said the name is right for me. It's a mixed feeling to see peeps leave games because you join.

"Oh no it's him again"

-Said by serveral people on the zone and gamespy hehe.

Gonk - noun;
Power droid existing the the Star Wars universe, created by esteemed film writed George Lucas, particularly present in the renowned PC Action game, 'Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight'. These cute looking boxes with stumpy little legs are shown to have no general purpose in this place where they are so common, other than walking round proclaiming 'GONK! GONK!' and being a general nuisance.

see also- Target practice, annoying, stupid

H8er - abbrev. noun;
One who hates. Abbreviation of 'Hater'. Often used in conjunction with another word, ie- PretzelH8er, ZoneH8er.


Put simply, I Hate Gonks. It's corny, i know. my old alias used to be IH8Gonks, but I changed it.

I sometimes also use the alias Evolution, but that was mainly in tribes and tribes 2.

how bout the rest of u guys? :)

I was playing JK one of the first weeks it was released when I picked up my name. I was taunting some other would-be jedi and I just happened to be slaughtering him everytime he'd respawn.

He said something like, "There's no escape from you..."

I said, "Yes.. you are correct. Zero Escape"

Then I changed my nick on the spot to "ZeroXcape" and it stuck with me ever since...

Lets see, a long time ago (on this planet, duh) I was playing Jedi Knight in a computer camp I went to. Then, Shadows of the Empire came out, and I thought he was the coolest. I added the 1 because...uhhh...I just did. Anyway, I was very good at Jedi Knight. People did not know I was Dash, and kept wondering who killed them. I liked the name, so I kept it. I use it on the Zone. I also have the name PunkBoy in other games (Half-Life Mods, Tribes demo) I got that name from my Tae Kwon Do instructor.

Ed (pretty obviously) is my first name, and Silvergun comes from the Stone Temple Pilots song "Silvergun Superman". Btw, I'm seeing the Stone Temple Pilots live in August.

Now is that 1886 1986 or 2086? Lol.

Mine started from my days of StarCraft. The stupid name thing wasn't letting me pick anything I wanted at first (which were all pure StarCraft anyway, useless for an overall name). So finally I hit on StarScrap because I SUCKED. So there you go. I got my name because I was awful. Oh, and at the time it didn't occur to me that it was similar at all to StarCraft. Anyway, now I identify with it so much that it has become much a part of me. I am held back from saying things I wouldn't normally because it is NOT an allias. (actually I was pretty out there when I kept changing names, but now I'm me. Wouldn't want to soil the name)

I also like to think of it as ,I'm GUNNING your butt down.

[SWS]Strider
01-24-2002, 02:20 AM
I read LOTR about a year ago and liked it alot. I needed a name for a foum so I was thinking of a character from LOTR. I skimmed the pages and thought about it a bit and finally decided on Strider (somtimes aragorn). Reason is I like his personality and people's perception on him. Most of his enemies underestimate hime, because he is quiet and dosen't flaunt his abilities. Yet at the same time he is not to be messed with, and the people who know him closely know that thier is more to him than meets the eye.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost

Weeeeeeellll one time a person called Butt_Scratcher was playing Nar Loading Terminal and i was owning too much in the early days of JK and then this guy was accusing me of cheating.... though it was practically not known how to hceat in those days.... and then he kept calling me terminator on the servers/zone and a name was born(not terminator yet)............ Me and my cousin started developing the best conbtrol systme ever invented... i tell you nushing.... and then we were working it out in Quake when i got blown into the lava during a test and the name.. *Pigeon* came up saying "Pigeon was Terminated" i decided that Terminator was my destiny and form that day i am now Terminator.. Then i had PTerminator.... the HDK_Terminator_blah lbah thne i had JT_Terminator then i got the great name Agent_Termie... i decided it was too cheesy so i used the T to join the Agen with Erminator with made a name such as AgenTerminator. I stuck with that and then changed to Agen_Terminator which i carry to this day. prbably the most irrelevant story u'll hear today but i had to spill the beans.

StarScrap
01-24-2002, 06:57 PM

Yeah, my clanmates relented and let me be Kestrel. Rendar wanted it to be a transformer, and it turned out that Kestrel is a fanmade TF. *shrug*

All I have to do is find suitable words for K.E.S.T.R.E.L, so I can use it in my signature. :: K.E.S.T.R.E.L model TSG-SELS One ::

I was introduced to telecommunications and the world of local hobby BBS's in 1987. I've used countless nicknames since, mostly chosen after bands I idolized or martial arts heros I liked to mimmick after watching their movies.

I discovered the Internet in 1995, while reading an article on some new-fangled thing called the World Wide Web. My wife and I, being the technophiles we are, quickly jumped onto the band wagon, found an ISP, and began surfing the web.

While creating our account, we were asked to choose a nickname to be known by. I decided the Internet was going to be my fresh, new start into an even broader world of telecommunications, and wanted something original, that most reflected my personality. After a few minutes of brain storming I came up with Nightfall. As it turned out, that spelling of the word was already taken, so I replaced the 'i' with a 'y'. The rest is history, and I haven't used anything else since.

Funnily enough, mine was a typo. I was playing Diablo 2 online and i had already taken my 2 other names, overted and Deprived, as characters. I was looking through the manual when i came upon something that read like "he fell into a dark, brooding depression" and i thought brood, thats a cool word (not thinking of the starcraft relationship BTW), so i typed it out a bit too fast and put an e on the end. Tada, my name was born.

Oh and BTW, its pronounced the same as brood, I've heard countless things like broody, brodie and broodé. Its just brood, plain and simple, but with an extra e for added flavour.

In school you could get a point in foreign languages if you told a good joke every friday when there was free time in the language you chose. I was doing horrible on mine and started looking up jokes to tell. When I told jokes every friday there was time. They called me jokemaster

Ok...mine is interesting.

I was thinking of an email address, one that would stick to me for while. Well, I hadnt been on the internet for a month or two, so....whatever.......well anyways....I was doing a shop project and I had to paint a car thingy, and the kind of paint I bought was Acrylic paint. Well, I thought "Hey, Acrylic sounds cool" so that would be part for sure.

then

I looked across the room, and there was my guitar....so I thought "Huhm...Acrylic and Guitar.......AcrylicGuitar! YEA!"

So, it stuck with me for a while now.....2 months longer than my joining date....and without Kjolen (K-Jo Skirtie), I wouldnt have been in these here forums. :D

At first I was gonna use Erwin Rommel as my name but I forgot my password and had to start a new account.

Darth Rommel sounds better anyways don't ya think?

[ July 26, 2001: Message edited by: Darth_Rommel ] word, i had to do a position paper on Rommel not too long ago, very interesting man.

Kyle Katarn is my favorite EU character.

Katarn.

Kyle defeated 7 Dark Jedi in JK, before JO came out. If I had played JO, I'd be Katarn09. That sounds bad. I hate Desann anyhow; he sucked as a character.

02-26-2003, 07:51 PM
I guess it all started back in 1997 wehn I had AOL and I was changing my e-mail address every week. I was Dengar8D8, greedo8D8, BobaFett9D9, etc. then I got a yahoo game account and thought the name greed626 was kinda catchy (I say it greedo 6 2 6 not 6 26 or 626 or 62 6). anyway I liked the sound of it so I stuck with it and now I use it everywhere (it's even my nickname on my SAT and college applications):)

RpTheHotrod
02-26-2003, 09:44 PM
Hmm...well...some people think it comes from Rodimus Prime The Hotrod but....


I was nicknamed Hotrod (the car!!!) when I was about 7 years old. It stuck with me until Diablo, where battle.net wouldn't take Hotrod (already used). I then changed the name to TheHotrod...and then started a clan later for StarCraft called "Reapers". Rp was the tag. Eventually, I got too busy in life and left the clan. However, I kept the Rp tag as a trademark for anything I owned online (plus, no one else would have RpTheHotrod, while some people might have TheHotrod. Makes it better by signing up without worrying about someone else having the name.

SO!!!


RpTheHotrod

Luc Solar
02-27-2003, 03:13 AM
Luc Solar was a cheesy name I came up with when playing my first Star Wars game more than a decade ago. I guess it was some sort of hybrid from Luke Skywalker and Han Solo...I dunno.

I wouldn't say it a "cool" name but I've got used to it. :)

Whenever I'm playing I add stuff to the name though.. you know, like:
Luc[Ph34rMe!]Solar / Luc[2Drunk!]Solar / Luc[SpareMe!]Solar :D

Lol, I thought you got it from the game Vampire The Masquerade,

There are a bunch of knights that are called the teutonic knights, its probly from that era then. I remember chopping their head of and using the animate dead spell, and walk around with no head. It was fun! :D

I'm a big Babylon 5 fan - when I first came onto the internet about 3 years ago, I was signing onto a Babylon 5 forum. I needed an alias, so I thought for a second, and suddenly The_One was born. Should've been The One, but the forum didn't support spaces, that's why you see both The_One and The One around ;)

By the way, if you're not a Babylon 5 fan, I'm not explaining it.

I also get highly frustrated when people think my name is derived from that Jet Lee film. I have not seen it, nor do I intend to. This is 100% pure B5 :D

Guardian Omega
02-28-2003, 12:21 AM
I had a series of names that involved the name Omega. Most of them were offensive based, such as.........

TheDarkOmega
OmegaWarLord
OmegaDestroyer
HolyOmega

So I decided for a defensive-based name.......I thought up Guardian and that's how I got my name.......
