    Mine is a little bit of a long story.

    When I was in high school, an old friend of mine and I were in a biology class together and were studying different types of seeds. The two major types of seeds are called "woody dicot" and "herbaceous stem". At about the same time we decided that those both sounded like peoples' names and called each other them for reasons I cannot recall.

    So, now he is Woody Dicot and I am Herbaceous Stem. To this day we still call each other those names sometimes (it was 20 years ago!), though my name has been shortened to Herb. The extra spin on it comes from the fact that this other guy is Puerto Rican, and is a native Spanish speaker. The Spanish word for 'herb' is 'hierba', but that is a feminine word, so he changed it to 'hierbo', since I'm a male and all.

    Also, its awesome because its a made up word, so it is never taken on any forum I sign up for!

    Legos and Duplo Blocks. Two different types of building blocks for kids.

    Actually came up with it when my friends and I tried to start a game of Dungeons and Dragons. Completely failed. Everyone decided to name each other after Disney Channel characters followed by the term butthurt.

    I'm not sure why I came up with this name. I guess it's cause well... when I first discovered this by TotalBiscuit (He checked out this game more than 2 years ago, here's the link to this video >Link<) I was instantly hooked and wanted to try it out.

    When I went to the main page, the first thing I saw was knights, beautiful knights on that shit. So.. I go in to create an account and I really couldnt figure out what the fuck to call myself.. and then BAM. Sirpixelot came to mind. Why? Cause:
    Sir = A title of honor for a knight/man of great honor or rank... which is obviously a knight back then.
    Pixel = Well... the game is 16-bits for christs sake.
    Lot = There's alot of fucking pixels in this game.

    So yea, that's why I named myself as such. :D

    A long long time ago,
    I can still remember how that minecraft used to make me smile,
    But I missed the Christmas discount,
    So I borrowed SneakyRyan's account,
    And was happy with singleplayer for a while

    But the loneliness made its debut,
    With every block I mined through.
    No-one else's mouse clicked,
    I couldn't make one more pick
    So bye bye, singleplayer survive
    got whitelisted on a server, and I met a few guys
    And we hung around, and had some good times
    buildin' farms and docks and cavernous mines
    farms and docks anc cavernous mines

    Ok, I can't go through with the entire song, I'm getting a headache from all the terrible rhymes.

    Long story short, I made friends on Minecraft while using my friend SneakyRyan's account, and we played other games, and they called me Sneaky, even after I got my own account (Ethyreale). Then I got into acting like a drill sergeant for teh lols, so I named myself Sergeant Sneeky Pants. Long boring story.

    That, sir, has to be among the better surnames out there, the best I've come across thus far being "Champion". :wink:

    My story is kind of lame. I saw a couple videos of this game and it looked awesome, so I promptly bought it on steam. When it asked for a name, I was thinking something medieval (because of medieval theme). So I decided to put Sir before my name, as I am quite the sir :smug:, and it is a medieval title. After that I was thinking of oldstyle names, and Walter came to mind. So there ya go, Sir_Walter! I would like to change it to something more clever though (If I had the chance).

    It goes like this. On one mild day of 2013, I had to make a new account for myself. AND THEN! I couldn't think of a name. It was a catastrophe. AND THEN! I went to the toilet. And I was like, I'm now AstraTheSpaceBurger. So I made that my new username

    Way back when I was making my Steam account I arbitrarily decided that I wanted my nme to use the -onym(ous) suffix. After finding a list of -onym words (wikipedia! (laziness!!!)) I tried names I liked until I found one that was available (10th try of so). In hind sight about a third of the words on the list (that I hadn't checked) would have been better than Apronym, but so it goes.

    Once I was looking for a name for Transformice, so I went to some player's profile on Dino RPG to check his dinoz' names. One was named Boutiquier. "bout" is a shortcut.

    Um, yes, yes it was. And your post hasn't been edited either, fwiw; sometimes what we think we type isn't what actually comes out.

    Now that we've cleared that up, back to discussing peoples' names 'nstuff. :huh?:
