Does your user name have any meaning?

Unread postby zweiterversuch » June 29th, 2008, 2:00 am

Reading some posts I just wondered why are such a unusual names in the forum.
I mean there are obvious ones like "Pukka" or "Messenger" but at the same time ones like "Thexev" or mine so I wanted to ask if the names had some reason or meaning behind them.
In my case Zweiterversuch means something like "Second attempt". I decided this would be my username until I get banned again from one of the forums I visit. After that it would be "third attempt"

Nay. I actually thought for something that had no real meaning behind it or anything directly related to me. At first I thought about ugly or strange animals such as a mole or platypus or something, but nothing met my criteria of being so strange that you don't even pay attention to them or funny enough. Then I thought about injuries, I thought something like "broken" and stuff like that, but it sounds just too common and that "cool-ish" sound that it has is just too flashy and crappy at the same time. Then I thought about other injuries or wounds, but something related to the flesh and not the skeleton, then I came to think about pus, but pus is too short, and asked myself "where does pus come from?", from an abscess! It met my criteria perfectly!, easy to remember, not too short nor too long and even had that little weirdness because no one wants to see an abscess or even have one but is a concept present in your life ALWAYS. And somehow I find that a little funny :D

Mine's a transformation of sorts of Marth from Fire Emblem:

Marth -> marusu -> marus

Back in the day Smash Bros. was the main game I spent my time with, so I made my name to reflect that (even though I main Roy). I don't play it much anymore, but the name stuck. I like the way it sounds, and it's fairly unique.

My user is a very loose translation of my real name into Japanese. The translation sounded cool so i decided to use it. Maybe its a bit too loose for any of you to figure out my real name though.

Mine is homage to the Iain M. Banks novel Consider Phlebas, which quotes the classic poem found (shortened) in my sig.
Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead, Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep sea swell // And the profit and loss.
- - Gentile or Jew // O you who turn the wheel and look to windward, Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

Well this is a "pukka"...strange...I tried to post an image of pukka but I can't find any.
Pukka is a character, a little china girl, who is in love with a little ninja that she follows everywhere. (That is the definition I know.)

Hopefully more people continue posting.
I mean, what is a "Raitei", an "Einjerhar" or a "Kirakira"

Really? I just called you Rai, what does Rai mean? thinder/lightning?
I thought that Pukka was only a made-up word. I never heard of it before.
I'm interested in knowing what's the story behind lolipedofin's unique username. Addleboy is another strange name (at least to me) and TheXev.... what the hell is a Xev????
