How did you settle on your nickname?

One of my first PC games was F117-A Stealth Fighter ([url:17nayu91]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGBLRMbDWgs[/url:17nayu91]). This game allowed you to write your full name and most pilots in the provided roster had nicknames. I chose something Top-Guney and after some crazy landings I settled in "The Madman" (not very original huh)... after hanging out in IRC for a while, that turned into Madster. That was nearly 20 years ago, I never came up with anything better.

What's your story?

I was signing up for a forum back in 2004 and I needed a user name. I wanted linkman, since I'm a big fan of Zelda, but it was taken, so I slapped the year on there. From then on, I've kept the 2004 part just to remain consistent. :P

I lost key keys around the time I signed up so went with that because I was having an unoriginal moment. No cool story from me. :)

Before I signed up for Something Awful I pretty much had a different name on every forum I signed up for. I got tired of keeping track of them all so I decided to pick one and stick with it.

I'm a fan of Kurt Vonnegut so I wanted a name that had something to do with one of his books, but all the good ones like Ice Nine or Billy Pilgrim or Kilgore Trout were already taken, so I settled on Deadeye Dick. After a while I just shortened it to deadeye because it's just easier, and I did get the random occasional retard who would be all like "hurr DICK lol," and also I don't want people thinking I'm a fan of the band Deadeye Dick.

I don't even know how I settled with this but it was years ago then not long ago I was called Segal in NavyFIELD and then it turned to Seagull and well I don't use that officially but you can all see that I am a seagull. Sometimes I do use Sagal Von Seagull just for fun (especially in RTS games etc.) But nothing too special.

My son's RL nickname is CF:

His name is Christopher and was on a baseball tournament team that consisted of 3 Christopher's, 3 Alex's, and 2 Zack's. Needless to say they needed nicknames. So my son got CF which were his initials, but also turned out to be the position he played. Center Field.

Strangely when I played Base Ball I played Right Field and my initials are RF.

Sadly when my son gets a boy he will have to name him Leonardo.

Guyon is a character in a book by my favorite author Edmund Spencer. Strangely it is already taken already on many sites. I am glad that did not choose Lancelot. LOL
