JamminJon

Mine is actually My Radio Name! I've been a Radio DJ for almost eight years now. I went without one for a long time, then the people in my hometown just started calling me Jammin' Jon, so I went with it and picked it up! I've been using it ever since 2014. My theme song for my radio show used to be Jammin' by Bob Marley 😂

I saw "Oh my sweet ghetto Jesus" in a meme back in 2011 or 2012 and I just love how well the words "ghetto" and "Jesus" match.

I've been using this username for years on a couple sites. I only got it because I saw a cousin of mine using it Zello I think it was on Myspace maybe I'm wrong It was a long ass time ago and the screen said Hello Zello it rhymed and I thought it was cool. So from then on I stole it.

Lemoyne outlaw

my old username was confederatestatesgta. because when i made this account i was really into the civil war and the confeds. i still am. but i dont really talk about it much to strangers. because everyone seems to hate the south nowadays. just look at how bad they made the southerners in rdr2 look. so when i made the name i combined my favorite faction and my favorite video game. and i also had a confederate flag as my avatar. and people complained so much. its pretty pathetic. its just a name and a flag. and people assumed i was racist. i kept the name until after red dead redemption 2 came out. and i fell in love with lemoyne. it is one of my favorite video game locations ever. so i chose lemoyne and outlaw because i always play as an outlaw in these games. my favorite video game character of all time is micah bell. so you can understand how i play. as for other usernames. i dont pay attention to them much. some are okay. but i cant think of any that im really amazed at. i mostly look at the avatars. now i have seen some pretty cool ones.

I think my username speaks for itself. Despite my contempt for GTA Online, I genuinely loved the namesake car! I love it's design, I love it's speed, and I love it's weaponry despite the fact I don't have full access to it because I refused to fork money out on Shark Cards just to buy a trailer. If the car came back as a reward in GTA Next for completing Most Wanted missions then I would be pleased! Honestly, I think I also just wanted a simple name that was easy to remember that would be in reference to both GTA and to my favourite comic book superhero, Batman. 

 

Usernames I like: well, obviously MiamiViceCity and SonOfLiberty even though they're both the same person (@Algonquin Assassin), but I also like @TheSantader25 (despite the fact I once made the mistake of calling him "TheSantander25", silly me), and finally, @Outlaw Biker Viking is honestly just one of those names of a guy with big cojones! I mean seriously, what's more manly than being an outlaw, biker and viking? Go on, tell me, I'll wait...

José_Sócrates

My username is pretty easy. It's from a former prime-minister from my country. He was terrible at his job, he left us in a huge amount of debt, he's the reason we had to live in austerity for the few years after he ran away from his post when the consequences of his bad decisions combined with the recession started surfacing, plus his bad decisions brought us a lot of problems that are still affecting us today. A few years ago, he was arrested and put into investigation because of suspected corruption, and the investigations still proceed to this day. We all know he's guilty, but he also has a lot of friends (from the same party) in the courts. Needless to say, he's the most hated prime-minister in my country, but I think he's pretty cool. One of my dreams is to be just like him, be a crappy politician while I steal money from my own people, and when everyone finds out, I'm untouchable because I'm best friends with the judge and the justice in my country sucks when it comes to corruption cases.

LiniArc

I used to take inspiration a lot from others usernames back in the day, and by that I totally didn't mean straight up plagiarize them. 

 

My current one is  proprietary for most part I would say, Linear + Arc. Two mathematical terms. 

 

Originally used it as a IGN in Rainbow Six Siege, I liked it so much that I had to bring it to the only forums I have developed this unique bond with.

Favorite character in Bully.

 

The fact that I too am a washed up, alcoholic, apathetic English instructor whose most helpful friend is one of his students can only be described as a happy coincidence.

Got my username from a random username generator lol, remember wanting to join GTAF after lurking for a few years but spent too much time trying to come up with a username and in the end I decided to use a random generator and picked the first one that looked cool

 

So no meaning behind my username as such but I quite like it if I may say so

 

As for best, off the top of my head some of my favourites are - Bob Loblaw, American Venom, Midnight Hitman, Carbonox, Uncle Sikee Atric , RedDagger, Solstron, Jeansowaty and my personal favourite, sivispacemoron.

Rumblebud

Several good friends of mine started calling me "rumble buddy" in correlation with my work on larger engines, modifying exhaust systems to produce "rumble" noises and all that stuff - shortened the end of it, to create the name Rumblebud. I find it by far a better choice of my past usernames, that's not cringe as f*ck.

i totally didn't steal that from Mach1bud

gig

To essentialize it, 'gig' is just another word for concert. Like you're going to a New York Dolls gig or whatever.

 

My fanatical enthrallment in music moved me to name my account on this forum this, and by my surprise the name wasn't taken yet. So that's cool.

 

Other than that, there's not really a special story to the name.

Orthur The Boah

Arthur pronounces boy as "Boah" and Mary often says "O' Arthur", I went with a different spelling of Arthur, kinda combined the O and the Arthur and hence I'm Orthur The Boah.

We call most live music shows "gigs" here. But I thought in the U.S. they called them "shows" mostly. Am I correct in that? But then anyone in the entertainment industry can use it as one-off thing they have going on. Like I hear stand-up comics using it too - "I have a gig tonight." Or people use it interchangeably with "nixer" or "job" - for example.. "I do stand-up as a side-gig." 

 

But yeah, as soon as I read your username, I thought of music gig and "The Great Gig In The Sky" by Pink Floyd. That's where I got my "Pink" from. Pink Floyd. Who go their Pink from a guy called Pink Anderson. But there is a @GreatGig on on this forum that don't post here no more! Or at least I haven't seen him post for a long time. Pretty sure his name is a Pink Floyd inspired username. Can't remember what he used to be called before that. I used to remember but don't any more.. Maybe he was called TheGreatGigInTheSky or something and shortened to GreatGig. Hey man, if you read this, let us know! :D

Ah yes, I love Pink Floyd. I have The Dark Side of the Moon on vinyl, as you should. I plan to acquire either Animals or The Piper at the Gates of Dawn on vinyl next. Though I haven't really listened to much of Pink Floyd in recent times, I had a huge Pink Floyd phase last year and 3 years ago. I remember my first time listening to that song "The Great Gig In The Sky" when I was like 14 y/o or so, truly astonished me. And yes, Pink Anderson & Floyd Council. Oh, by the way, which one's Pink? 

 

Indeed, they usually either call them concerts or shows here but I hear the word concerts a bit more. The word gig is a fun word to use for me so I have come to call music events gigs if not concerts. I would've never guessed the Pink in your name originated from Pink Floyd, but that's awesome. Now we just need a Mister Floyd on the forum. :colgate:

For some reason, I always assumed yours was linked to the movie "Reservoir Dogs" and the names they use to hide their own names during criminal activity. 

 

Anyway my username is the same as my Xbox gamertag, I got it from the little Trolls you have with the long hair. For some reason as a child I had tonnes and I don't even know where they came from. Technically it should be "LittleBlueHairedTroll" but that didn't tickle my pickle.

That's a happy coincidence because I love Mr. Pink's character and his portrayal by Steve Buscemi in Reservoir Dogs but it was because my username used to be ThePinkFloydSound. I wanted to not be tied to one band as my username but wanted to keep some link between my old username and my new username. I also liked that pink is associated with being quite effeminate and mister is masculine, so I liked that juxtaposition.  

 

And I thought your username was associated with the internet trolling and not Trolls. Which I loved too. I had a few of them. :D

That is truly one thing about the name that I regret. I actually came up with the idea in 2009, and I hadn't actually heard the word Troll or Trolling to be associated with... well, Trolling. I had a YouTube channel (didn't really go anywhere) and I always worried that viewers would assume the same, that I was making Trolling videos. I got about 6k subs so I didn't want to change the "branding" if you will.

I just don't like revealing much information about my personal life online. I like staying anonymous. I also really like the show Breaking Bad and while I'm nothing like Walter White I use his alias as an empty but referential pseudonym to maintain my anonymity online.

 

I'm also terrible at usernames which is always a bother to me. If I made a unique username right now I would likely end up changing it after a few hours or so.
