Sobend

What's in a name?

Recommended Posts

How did you come up with your username? You can discuss all of your usernames if you'd like.

 

I chose Sobend because I wanted a name without numbers on it. All of my friends had accounts with numbers (such as Piggybank30) and it was hard for me to memorize. So I decided I would get a simple name. I figured all of the one word names would be taken, so I decided to pick two simple words and combine them into one username. Luckily for me, "So" and "Bend" were not taken. And here I am today.

Nitua56, my original name, is "Austin" (my first name) spelled backwards... except I either forgot the "s" or decided to leave it off. No idea where 56 comes from.

 

Big Tree (my Sals name here for most of my tenure)... idk why I picked that.

 

 

Oh yeah, Nitmonchan is my clever variation of the Pokemon "Hitmonchan." So clever.

I was looking for a good name, i'd had a pretty bad one for a little while. One day while slaying Bloodvelds in the Slayer tower (this is back in 2010) I saw someone with the name "Team of one", with I think a few numbers thrown in there. I also knew of the console game "Army of Two" because i'd played it for the first time recently (at that time). I put the two together, and you won't believe how stoked I was that it wasn't taken.

I started using Mohorak back in the early 2000s, starting with AdventureQuest. Originally, I wanted it to be "Mo-Ho-Rak", like some sort of Bionicle, but hyphens weren't allowed, so I combined it into Mohorak. I've used it ever since, though it doesn't really mean anything. I'm pretty particular about the pronunciation, though (mo-HO-rahk).

forgot.

 

 

Looking back at it, I really don't remember why I chose that name.

Lord: I really liked Lord of the Rings at the time... A LOT.

Earth: My favourite element to use in the RPG Golden Sun

13: Lord Earth was taken on RuneScape, and I was 12 at the time. I was scared Jagex was going to find out I was 12 and not 13 like the rules demanded to play the game, so I went with 13 instead. This was before anyone of any age could sign up and play, so yeah.

 

RuneScape wasn't the first place I used the name, but I think I was around 11 when I started using it. Now that I'm almost 19 I kind of extremely hate the name because I pretty much consider it the worst name in existence. :lol:

I was soon to learn all sorts of fun shizzle about the guitar when I came up with my username long ago, but I ended up getting bored and realized I have little musical talent. But unfortunately, I had already registered similar usernames on various places, so it would be too inconvenient to change. The 377 in my RuneScape username was an automatic suggestion thing.

I created my account when I was like 8 so I just choose my initials, added number 5 because it was at least 4 letters. Fortunately Jagex released display names and I could remove it.

Ah the days of duelbattler1... Who soon would emerge as A Wild Yoshi... Such great memories...

 

Duelbattler ended up being taken at the time, so I added 1, because I hoped to become #1. Eventually, when name changes were introduced, I decided to combine Mario and Pokemon, and hence A Wild Yoshi came to fill the void of duelbattler1.

It's my name. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but I regret it now. It's too late to change though, everyone knows me as Micael Fatia, adopting a new online username would be too much of a hassle.

I used to use my own name, but I changed it to Angel Hayley (or some incarnation of it like AngelHayley and what not) shortly after the release of display names so as to avoid having my name plastered all over RS all the time.

 

Angel Hayley came out as a last ditch resort. "Dark Angel" was already taken (the name I use elsewhere), and I was a big fan of Paramore back in 2009 (Hayley Williams being their main singer), and "DarkAngelHayley" was too long, so I compromised and put "AngelHayley" as "Angel Hayley" was already taken. A few months later, the latter opened up and I changed my name to it's current form.
