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
So yeah, pretty self explanatory, how did you get your user name, what does it mean?

I'll start!

There is far more to mine than meets the eye
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.
1/22 Artificial Brain ?
1/27 Koffin Kats ?
2/10 Marduk
2/14 Death Angel ?
2/17 Overkill
2/18 Deterioration
2/23 Immolation ?

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.

When I was 11-12 or so I used to go on this website cokemusic.com (it was real similar to a Habbo Hotel type of thing), and my username on there was Razorlight, after a band I was listening to at the time of signing up. Everyone called me "razor" for short, and it just stuck!

There already is a thread for this, 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:

Originally Posted by Natrlhi View Post

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.
