Was always fond of Shakespeare's ability to add more than one meaning to everything.

[code:1zh1psmu]Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. [/code:1zh1psmu]

I've had quite a lot of nicknames but back in 2004 (I think) this one IRC channel I was hanging out at had this "change your nick to something completely different for a day" and after a bit of pondering I came up with Daiz pretty much out of nowhere. Since it was short and neat I decided to stick with it ever since.

:P Actually it was my silly attempt to go all Shakespeare. At the time I was deeper into my art, and I tended to acquaint the creative process to casting a spell. Plus I was toying with calling my website/ company ION productions. I for eye, blah, blah, blah lots of double meanings.

I can't remember exactly where i came up with mine. I was signing up for something, needed a nickname and this one just kinda popped into my head. I always liked the dichotomy in the name, though. That's why i stuck with it.

I was nine years old when I attempted to join a forum, in 2001. I was just starting to explore game developing using the Games Factory trial. My name is Kyle, and I was currently appending "made by kyle" notes on my internal experiments. However, I knew once I went online this would have to stop because not only was Kyle a common name, but it also went against the usual internet rule of thumb to keep your personal information to yourself.
Anyway, nine year olds aren't very creative, and my solution wasn't either. I created a "company" called Ksoft Productions by simply appending the first letter of my name to software. Then, as I was registering and needed a name, I figured that as Ksoft's main man, I was Mr. Ksoft. Click, registered. That's how it's been ever since.
Since Ksoft has long since evaporated because it is the worst, most unoriginal name ever, I've wanted to change my username, but I also don't want to have to re-establish my identity, so I've continued on using it. I found a solution recently though, and when it isn't taken I find myself simply registering as "Mr. K".

davio and i had been wanting to get on xbox live for ages, but sadly we only had dial up internet. one day, we thought "hmm why cant we go on with dial up?" well of course, dialup users cant easily do this because the cable cant connect to any router or anything, but we cleverly hacked it using the Ethernet port on our computer, and some network connections stuff.

after alot of debugging we got xbl to load up VERY SLOWLY, i mean it took an hour to dload the menu for the 360 dashboard. so anyways, i needed to sign up for an account. loading the everything took so long, and eventually after all the sign up crap, its choose a nickname. so i try a name, it gets rejected after 30 minutes of confirmation, think of a new one, try again, same thing. i spend maybe 5 hours on this damn thing and get fed up, and start randomizing the hell out of things. i try another 6 times nothing. and then whoa, im really pissed so i choose three random things, and smash them together.

in the end, i get left with Quazi GNRL nose, yea.
i actually quite liked it tho, so i kept using it for stuff, and well it just stuck. i like the fact that i can quickly be referred to as Quazi, quaz, or wtv. they sound cool :P

I used many different nicknames for different forums - Kenshin (samurai from Japanase anime), kodama, Asanuma (inspired by some historical events from Japanese history). Pretty nice nicknames for a teenager, but now I use mainly Yaraslau. It's just my name and nothing more, but it can be easily pronounced by English and non-English speaking people. As simple as that.

...and one more reason to use Yaraslau as a nickname. I ckecked "Yaraslau" and received a very good result. It means, that for my native language (the Belarusian language) and for the Russian language name "Yaraslau" has a very positive meaning. :D - http://analizfamilii.ru/pham.php?pham=% ... B%E0%2A%E2
