Usernames

Just wondering: What is the origin of your username? Does it mean something special, was it a random name, your name, or something else entirely? Also, Do you use the same name everywhere online?

I said same for all, but in reality it is *similar*

If I attempt to register at a site with johngalt, and it is take, I then opt for John L. Galt or johnlgalt.

However, I rarely ever use that for gaming....

Yup I use similar id's as well. I started with thegr8anand(Anand being my name and I was young at that time ) and have used it almost everywhere or 'thegr8' in some places.

Mine is the first 3 letter of my last name and then the initials of my first, middle, and last name and then the year I was born. I use it for everything.

This a good idea for a thread

I used to have a different name for everything but as time went by I tended to forget which name went with what Now I just use a couple with variations.

smarteyeball started as a whim when I signed up for a private torrent site. For some reason, the idea of an eyeball that was smart amused me for a few minutes late one night. It's just a theme I run with now
