What is the origin of your nickname?

Lance Mayhem

 

Lance Mayhem is a name I came up with around 1990 or so. 

 

He was to have been an anthropomorphic lion in a sort of disco suit. I intended for him to be in the supporting cast of a comic I never started, featuring a heroine known as Lynx (or The Lynx), herself a pretty blatant ripoff of Cutey Bunny, by Joshua Quagmire (who was satirizing Cutey Honey, by Go Nagai).

 

 

 

Cutey Bunny's Wikipedia page: 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutey_Bunny

 

 

The Cutey Bunny website: 

 

http://www.cuteybunny.com/

 

 

(Perhaps my next GTA profile will be a reference to Stig's Inferno or Somerset Holmes.)

 

 

 

Nowadays , a Google search for Lance Mayhem turns up a lot of results that aren't me.

My dad runs a charter boat in Rio de Janeiro . As a kid I used to tag along and everybody called me ‘cabeca de peixe’  or fish head. Guess it stuck..


my online tag lil_narciso is named after an infamous stray dog that used to hang out around posto 7.  He was small and friendly but fearless verging on suicidal. A bit like me..

Mine comes from a 1993 William Gibson novel called Virtual Light. Been using it for games for going on 25 years now. Unfortunately, since then some f*cking anime has come out with the same name so now everyone thinks I'm a weaboo. Sigh...

As some of you will know Jack Bauer is the main character on the TV show 24 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24_(TV_series)

 

Back in 2006/2007 I started playing Counter Strike 1.6 and a mate decided to play as "Chuck Norris" so my counter was to go with Jack Bauer, the name of the main character of my favorite tv show. Before that, I was heavily influenced by RTS games and my nickname started with King_ which meant my new nickname was actually more appropriate for shooting games and the likes so I eventually started using it more and more. I was puzzled that so many communities and games had the name available as "24" was a very loved and popular show at the time.

I've been using this nickname for around 15 years now and If I find it's already taken I usually play with different combinations of the same name and/or add my year of birth to make it work.

Boris Dragosani is one of the bad guy protagonists in an excellent series of books by Brian Lumley, the Necroscope series.

Well, it's quite simple: album name from the group I love to listen from time to time, Bohren & der Club of Gore. Simple English translation will put is a ghost fist.

It's a dark-jazz thing, quite famous in some circles and widely copied by some other similar bands.

Hm, rational. Why bothering with dictionaries and stuff when machine can actually do that instead? Makes sense.

I got the first part of my name because back when I was a kid I liked my room very cold, people used to walk in and scream ثلج ثلج (arabic for Snow or Ice, basically a reaction for freezing) & name got stuck.

 

I got the second part of my name because I used to love hip-hop music back in highschool & always had some Dr. Dre music/production or Ice Cube music playing, my friends felt Ice was getting stale, so they started calling me Dre.

The name IceDree was born and became my brand in the internet since then. Forums, Social media ... etc.

Its a word I've liked for a while, no special reason however I suppose you could say that as I try to protect people moving cargo from being targeted, I bring a certain sense of good luck.

 

Oh and 83 is the year I was born, if that wasn't clear.

I always liked that word too for some reason. Maybe from back in the D&D days as a yewt.

Ok I admit defeat. Should've thought more when picking my name. Taterman > Talisman.

Sounds like two superheroes.

Nobody is likely going to believe me on this one, but here we go.

 

Back in 2015, pre-PS4/Xbox One days, I saw a Social Club user with the name -Yayz-, or something along those lines, and he had the Albany logo as his Social Club name. Thought that was pretty cool, so I browsed for other car companies that I like, and I stumbled across Classique. So I took it to heart, and still rocking it to this day.

The jokes about the Stallion being a Declasse vehicle came afterwards, which was unexpected... 

I made my GTAForums account in 2016 sporting the Classique name.

My previous name on Social Club was TornadoTurret.

Lonely-Martin

My PSN username is a tribute to a close friend that passed on far too early. A few IRL buddies do the same with similar names too as we were a close bunch.

 

My name here though, just gotta pop to a cinema in GTA V/O and you'll soon see with a bit of luck. It's my favourite t-shirt I unlocked too. I'm neither lonely or called Martin IRL, but it is funny when folk call me Martin on here, or assume I'm a lonely ol' soul when they disagree with my views, lol. Good times!

 

Cool thread TBH. :)

My GTA Online character's name is "MrBean" because I got no choice. I wanted to use something different, that's why I didn't chose my real name.

I think my current forum name is pretty obvious. My Xbox gamertag and old forum name is Maxx1013.

 

Max was a cat I had for about 15 years

 

Spoiler

10 is October and 13 is 2013 when my kittens were born. I had both their parents but their mother died a month after they were born and I had to bottle feed the 2 on the left.

 

Spoiler

I still have 2 but lost my boy at the front to cancer back in January

 

Max1013 looked wierd to me so I added an extra x to the name.
