    I just picked mine because I like the band and it was available. What about you? Some of you have unique names.

    My little brother made a Diablo II character back in 2002 called DigitalButtocks, and being 12, I was very amused by it. So from then on, for every game and message board I joined the "Butt" theme stuck.

    I joined the forum during my junior year of high school. I always liked the letter Z for some reason, probably because it was uncommon. I was looking for a username and cracked open a Latin dictionary and found Zephyrus, god of the West Wind, right there in the back of it.

    Pink Floyd and King Crimson were my favorite bands in high school, which is when I joined this board.

    Registering here was the last account I created with this username back in 2004. When I was a kid I needed to register an account for some gaming forum, I think it was counter strike, and the first word that came to mind was SWAT, I just wanted something quick and easy to remember. I used that/this handle for quite a few years.

    Mine is based of this Perry Bible Fellowship comic:

    However, I altered it into a more archaic spelling.

    I posted for almost two years as "unregistered" on the Nevermore forum. When I went to register, "unregistered" was already taken, so I went with "unknown"

    Something my crazy grandmother said to the family once. I was bothering her/being a nasty kid basically and my mother asked her what she wanted, she replied "Jimmy... dead."

    Another time she picked up a knife and a cardboard box and started stabbing it and yelled "Jimmys face"

    Bitch was metal as fuck

    I was a stupid 13-year-old that went onto some nondescript Latin-to-English translator and looked for "bringer of death." Downright embarrassing now.

    Was my Diablo 2 character's name. It's stuck as an online handle/character name in games I've played since.

    I didn't realize that so many people here used to play Diablo II. That game was awesome.

    i love no country for old men, black metal and shitty puns. i am sort of indifferent to old wainds though lol.

    of course, i've had tons of names here over the years: guardian of darkness (lol), the timebird and moon of amber are ones i recall. also deron_hates_pakistanis but i don't think that one lasted very long
