View Full Version : The Official "What Does Your User Name?" Mean Thread

I don't think there is already a thread for this.... at least I hope not :eyes:
So yeah, pretty self explanatory, how did you get your user name, what does it mean? :D

I'll start!

There is far more to mine than meets the eye :tongue:
My Dad is named John too, and back before I had a cellphone my band mates out call my home phone and ask "Is John there?" so finally my bassist at the time called one time and said "Is John.... the drummer there?", thus it was born!

Also, the initials of John The Drummer are the same as my real name, so it kinda just stuck.

Mine was the username of my account on Runescape from way back in the day that I just kind of started using for everything. The actual name is the name of a monster in Runescape (Kalphite Guardian) altered to fit the twelve character maximum for usernames.

I was fat in middle school, didn't really care and used it to be the butt of jokes with my friends. When I first downloaded Napster (!!!!!!!), I was trying to think of a user name. My friend Jon, who was with me, suggested SirChunk but it was taken. I thought it SirLardsAlot as a play on Sir Lancealot, thought it was hilarious, and ran with it. It became my screenname for everything. This was around the time that the Internet was really becoming a means for social entertainment (around 2001 / 2002), so I began using it for everything. AIM, Napster, Kazaa, the Iron Maiden Bulliten Board and every other forum I was ever on, my Battle.net account, and so on.

I've stopped using that name when signing up for things for a good 5 years now, and have since shed many of the pounds. :party:

There already is a thread for this (http://www.metalsetlists.com/showthread.php?t=13183&highlight=user), and it's a pretty fun read if you're relatively new here.

Here's the explanation I posted in that thread way back when:

I'm a pleasure / thrill seeker - one who believes in "sucking the marrow out of life", to borrow a line from "Dead Poets Society" (Henry David Thoreau, actually). I've found that material things are always fleeting to some extent or another, but experiences last a lifetime - especially the ones you can remember afterward. That's why I try to get my "high's" naturally, whether it's movies, music, SCUBA diving, working out, making someone laugh or commiting some random act of kindness and not telling anybody about it (I need to do that last one more, though).

I just think that if you're not passionate about something, you're just wasting your time here on this planet, which is fleeting as it is.

So, "natrlhi" has been my screen name, e-mail address (well one of them, anyway) - and even my personalized license plate at one time - for the last ten or fifteen years.

When I first started playing bass hella years ago, I was all about bass virtuosos and shit like that. I hated that bass was overshadowed by guitar, so I somehow came up with the idea of slapping guitars, literally and not the bass technique. So I deemed myself slapguitarer, the one who slaps guitars. Hella stupid but whatever, I was like 13.

Came up with this horrible username when I was like 12... Garage was to represent Metallica's Garage Days Revisited, Metal as in, well, the genre, and I just liked the number 468. It's awful. I changed it on some sites to OceanOfViolence, which is a combination of 2 of my favorite albums (Epidemic of Violence and Ocean Machine).

Back when I first signed up for a Hotmail account I was listening to Ocean Machine's 'Biomech' album heavily. It asked me to choose a username so I said "I'm gonna be Biomech@hotmail.com". But I guess Biomech was already in use so it gave me a bunch of other options, and I ended up picking biomech52. I switched over to yahoo a few years later and decided to just go with my real name as my address but I knew there were a million other 'Adam Clarks' so I just stuck the '52' on after it. Now my user name is always just adamclark52 wherever I go.

Mine comes from a xbox live user demented8. We met and played only in rainbow six 3. From there, I decided that I would like that I liked the name but wanted to add something to it. I added the 'X' because I simply love that letter and 14 because I am eternally 14 years old in my mind.

Simply put MPF is the initials of my very first band I had back i had from 7th-9th grade called My Personal Fate. and I used MPF as a user name for multiple forums I used to go to since it looks like it doesn't mean anything, although people say that it stands for Mike Portnoy Forum, which while it does, is not the acronym I use it for.

in 2010 I wrote a song with my old band in somewhat a tribute to that band called My Crimson fate, which was about the final fall in an epic battle of the gods. sadly the band broke up before we were album to record our first album.

"naturally, high"True story. Kind of.

My very first username on AOL some twenty years ago or so actually was "NatrlEhi" (taking advantage of all eight characters we were allowed at the time), but somewhere along the line I dropped the "E".

...actually, come to think of it, I remember exactly when it was. I had bought this red Camaro with t-tops and I thought it was a really badass ride at the time, so I got personalized plates for it which read "NATRLHI" because I could only have seven letters for a license plate.

Not that anybody gave a flying fuck, but there it is. :lol:

Originally I intended to use it as a band name but the band never materialized.
