Johan.. it's my name, which I'm thankful for since I'm a fan of Dragon Ball Z

 

I use the same name across every place I run into (not Johan though, it was my old username until I changed it on the forums) the username I use is Johacamigames

 

I just change it around, though I avoid using XxxxXxx or numbers, no offence to those that do.

1) I'm a fan of the past Kingdom of Prussia (not Russia), therefore Preuße, which means nothing more than Prussian.

2) I never choose the same name more than once. If you find a Preuße, Preusse or Prussian somewhere else, that's not me.

3) I find something else. I never use a name with numbers and the first letter always has to be capitalized for me. I don't like names like bilbobaggins53568. Also no silly "X" left and right of the name and no special characters, like in !Xbilbo_bagginsX!. The worst would be something like !X_b1lB0_B4gG1n53568_X!. It has to be a "clean" name for me, like BilboBaggins or better Bilbo Baggins (if blank character is allowed). If already taken, I won't use BilboBaggins. or BilboBaggins1, I find a clean name that has not been taken.

I wouldn't use the name Bilbo Baggins, it's just an example.

Mine I came up seven or six years ago while looking for names for a PS2 videogame savegame. It's lived it's glory until today. Also, when Vanto is taken, I use Vanto647, or if that one is taken, Vanto64, and if that is taken too, I give up finding usernames.

Phoenix sh*t, I came up with it when I heard someone else had it as a user name, but it was Phoenix Poop, and I wondered how phoenix poop actually looks like, so I created my own username called Phoenix_sh*t

I'm slightly mental, hence the name BarelyLegal appeared in my head. I had an original 'BarelyLegal' account, but requested to be banned as I didn't want to use the account anymore. In hindsight I could have just left it open and rejoined at a later time, but I'm not that smart - hence BarelyLegal 2.0.

I got Fireman, because I used to love fire and had a game where there was a man made of fire, a fireman. So it has nothing to do with being a firefighters, but a man of fire.

 

I use it on every other forum if I can, otherwise it turns into Firemans, usually that isn't taken. However for obvious reasons I don't use this name for role-playing games or MMO's.

I chose the name Beastly40 as a parody of all the usual "cool" or forced "awesome" sounding names of the typical gamer in this generation of people.
I use the Beastly40 name on this site, PS3/Playstation Network, but I generally go by other names on other forums, the most common being mbv67.
If the Beastly40 name was already taken, well I would come up with a username based on cars or the like.

Well, when I was younger, around 12 I used to follow a small F1 racing league called F1 CEL and there was a driver with the username mcquiz. I liked that name and started using it a few years later. Then coincidentally I started participating a lot in quizzes myself and the name suddenly had a more personal connection. Now I've been known on the internet under that name since early 2010.

Usernames

 

We all have a username we use for different sites around the internet and for different platforms.

Examples such as GTA Forums, Rockstar Social Club, Twitter, Xbox Gamertag, PSN ID, Steam etc.

 

So my question is how did you come up with your username?

  • For some it is simply your real name
  • For others it is a nick name
  • And for some it is based of something they have an interest in.

Another question is, do you use the same username across various sites/platforms or do you have multiple usernames for each one?

 

Last question. What do you do when your desired username is taken already?

  • Do you choose a slight variation of the name you wanted, adding numbers or spaces/underscores perhaps?
  • Maybe you choose an entirely different name all together?

I

 

 

1. It's a reference to one of my favourite video games. The Geth are an race of AI's in Mass Effect and I'm a massive f*cking nerd basically.

 

2. Nah. Actually I've never used this username before.

 

3. None of my usernames have actually ever been taken. God forbid I actually had to use my date of birth or something at the end.

My name comes from the original GTA. In a mission someguy was called johnnyzoo a man who told you to waste some sonofabitch who was 'banging his wife'.

 

That line always stuck with me I was 13 and couldnt read/pronounce properly so anytime I copied that line for giggles I said 'snofabitch'

I just used my real life name. Apart from GTAF, I never use my real name as a username for any other website and it's usually something different all the time. I come up with really odd names so I never had the issue of someone already having a username I desired. :ph34r: :ph34r:

My cousin starded calling me Pajkosinjo when I was younger and I just added the SRB part. All of my accounts that have to do with gaming are a mix of my nickname and some random word or number.

El Diablo is just The Devil in espanol.

when I was younger I thought that sounded cool.

 

I don't actually use this name for anything else now.

GTAF is one of the only places anymore where I'm known as El Diablo. otherwise I sort of grew out of it. it's not my gaming handle and it's not really connected to any of my other internet presence or activities.

 

so I don't actually register with El Diablo anywhere else.

which means it's never an issue that someone 'took my username.' the primary username that I go with nowadays (which I'm not going to share with you here :pp) is pretty unique and it's never been taken on any website I've ever registered with.

Miamivicecity: More or less took Miami Vice and combined it with Vice City.

 

SonOfLiberty: I wanted something to reflect my GTA IV fanboyism  and that was pretty much what I came up with. I didn't really give it much thought until  after that I almost name myself after a Metal Gear Solid entry. :p
