    you get 19+1+14+20+1 = 55 = 5x5 =25. Now mirror the number 25 and you get 52 = 5-2 = Illuminati pyramid has 3 sides. Santa = Illuminati confirmed!

So I just thought of this topic and considered it can be a fun topic to have people explain where their names come from so I stopped my college homework I'm doing to log-in on the forums and start this thread :P. I'd love to have everyone participate in different languages so people who's not good at english but know spanish can feel free to write in spanish and I'll happily translate since I know both languages but I can't help in any other.

The point is to tell the story of why you're called how you're called in the forums. If that is not your usual name in games or in other stuff, feel free to explain your usual name and not the one you have here. I'll post my story later, after a few people have posted already.

I'd also enjoy to see people like @Bardock come up with something fun other than just "Because I like Bardock, duh!" and maybe describe the character and why you love him so much.

I consider this a fun thing to do on the forums like the Rate The Signature Above you thread but I was not sure if it could be considered a game so I posted it here.

In spanish:
Spoiler for En español:
Así que se me ocurrió esta idea para un tema del foro y lo cree porque me pareció divertido que todos expliquemos el origen de nuestros nombres del foro así que interrumpí el trabajo que estoy haciendo para la universidad para hacer este tema :P. Me encantaría que participen personas de todo el mundo así que si no dominan bien el inglés siéntanse libres de escribir en español y yo, felizmente ayudaré a traducir pues conozco ambos idiomas.

El punto es contar la historia explicando por que tienes el nombre que tienes en el foro y si no es el nombre que utilizas normalmente en juegos o en otros lugares, puedes explicar ese nombre en vez de explicar el del foro. Una vez que ya varias personas hayan contado sus historias, yo publicaré la mía.

También me gustaría que las personas que no tienen nombres propios como Bardock o Goku no solo digan "Porque me gusta el personaje, duh!" sino que expliquen por que les gusta tanto el personaje y lo describan un poco.

Me pareció algo divertido para hacer en el foro como el tema de evaluar las firmas de los demás pero no lo puse en la categoría de los juegos porque no se si se puede considerar un juego también.

Okay, I'm going to have a fun version, and a brutally honest version.


The fun version is I was four and decided that I should get as much sugar in me as possible and try and type random names from Star Wars.  After a week in a sugar coma, I look back at it and tried to figure out which ones were which.  Never figured out this one but it looked cool, so I use it now.


The brutally honest version is, is that I was trying to put Vader in the user name for some old MMO that I don't remember and misspelled it to Vating, and the name just stuck.

Tell me, which version did you like more?

I'm not sure if I made it up, but I'm pretty sure I got it from Teen Wolf ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). In Teen Wolf, he is a deputy with unknow abilities. I just thought it was cool, so I started using it

Don't forget you get turned on by his muscles




For me, my 5th Grade french teacher pronounced my name as Delmoo, sounded like a cow. When making my youtube Channel, I remembered a spelling word I had, chic, added n to Delmoo and got ChicDelmoon... I was pleased.

People and their sucky vocabulary pronounced it as chick delmoon and some people commented on why i was calling myself a chick.

Anyway, Xz just seemed appealing and was the 2 main buttons I use in my hardcore MLP Pokemon GBA PC gaming. So i dropped Chic and added Xz to Delmoon and now I have DelmoonXz :D

My in-game name was through anger of the game not allowing me to put my Name as Goku ( i thought it was singleplayer ) I thought for 4 days and eventually thought : La (The) Pin (Sharp and dangerous)
Lapin turns out to be rabbit in french buh owell...

I now call myself Dr. D

Nice stories so far, not dissapointed at all. Tell us yours @Stormfall. Don't just comment on @Aeris's :P. I'm not sure which one I like more @vating, both are funny, actually. Misstyping Vader as "Vating" sounds something pretty hard to acomplish.

Ok so here's mine. @Umbrax, brace yourself for the lamest story ever:

So since I've been little it's been hard for me to like new kinds of food. Till this day I don't like meats other than cow and chicken and I don't like any kind of seafood. White cheese is also something I hate, amongs many other common stuff everyone eats. I do like a weird kind of food no one usually likes, which is (and I had to use google translate for this) liverwurst.

About 8 or 9 years ago, during a family trip to Canada, I was haging out with with some friends of my uncle (who do live in Canada unlike the rest of the family), they were Venezuelans like me. They eventually offered me some ham and I was like "No thanks, I don't like ham." and they though "Well that's weird." but after a while, they started noticing there was a lot of common stuff I didn't eat and eventually my mom mentioned I like liverwurst and one of my uncle's friends was like "Dahell man? You eat liverwust but won't eat white cheese? I'm gonna call you Tofu, I bet you do eat that stuff."

At first I HATED that name but during the whole trip I was being called Tofu by everyone, even my parents and my sister so I eventually got used to it. I didn't like it but I didn't mind at all. One day, I jumped in a freezing cold river challenging myself to last inside as much as I could and the same guy that nicknamed me Tofu started calling me The Mighty Tofu just because I dared do that unlike everyone there. I found it funny and suddenly Tofu didn't sound as bad. The guy, after discovering I hadn't tried tofu before, invited me a meal so I could try it and it tasted horrible but I kept the nickname.

I didn't manage to get my friends back home to start calling me Tofu but the first time I named a character in a game after that trip I had no ideas and suddenly I just though: "Since no one calls me Tofu, why not have that name here?" Of course, Tofu's always taken so I usually end up being named "The Tofu" or "Tofux" or "The Tofux" since those are usually the names that are availale.

I went around looking for Japanese names and meanings after wanting a name for Role playing, because back in DBO My name was NICKGC9732 and that my friends does not look good for Role playing. So My friends and I started a RP family and did not like my old rp name of (Kazuma Vechin). They also did not want the last name to be Vechin, So we picked the last name of Kegawa.With that i was on a search for a good name, And i found Katsumi and Katsuma. I liked the name, and thought it sounded better then Kazuma. With Katsumi sounding female and being classified as female i picked the male version of Katsuma and stuck with is for the last 2 years XD. i also started to use the name on other games along with steam, though people kept shorting it to Kat, So I became MR.Kat on steam.

Wrll as a child growing up people called me JOJO. So at first that was my name on here. But now while I was at a scouting camp, somebody gave me the name Jango, So I role with that now instead of Jojo. So when I got the name Jango I was like, "Y not change my name on the forums."

So I used the name Rogue for many reasons.

I used to go by the alias of just duke, but as i was signing up for Adventure quest back in 2003/2004
It was obviously taken, now either i had made a mistake and accidentally added an m, or it was a suggested name, along with 5 others.

So either one, but I've gone with it, and been using it ever since then.

So your name doesn't come from...?

Mine comes from a movie which I have no clue what it was called, played by Will Smith who was a cop-cowboy or something and his name was Mr.West. (I remember at the last bit of the movie, he would have an encounter with the villain who had created some kind of massive spider robot, I think the villain was on a wheelchair... hmm...).

I saw this film back in 2009 whilst on the beach on summer vacations. And used the name "Mr.West" mostly for C.S. 1.6, I loved it and ended up being "West Sky" in every game. In DBO I continue to use it but I had to have 2nd characters, so just for fun used SonWest (yes, no wonder on why "Son") and West San.
Anyways, so now I just go by West.

This is a really good story, Enjoy :)).
First of all I was a big fan of the Jak and Daxter games (still am) when I was younger I like the sound of Renegade from Jak 2 Renegade so I used for my username for most games I played (if it's taken I would put a Z or Z6 after it). Then in DBO and other games people started calling me Rene for short, Rene as most of you know is a female name. I then told people to call me Ren instead because of the reason above and because it sounds nice. People still called me Rene even after telling them so I said popo this and used Ren as my name for almost everything now.
