Hey now!

I figured I'd restart a thread that was wiped out in the Great Outage, and once again ask...

...how did you come by your RF Generation user name?

Is it based on a fave hobby? A tribute to a hero of yours? The humiliating result of a lost bet? Be it painfully obvious or painstakingly esoteric, feel free to give us the lowdown.

My handle comes from a name my father's former coworker gave his dog. (Actually, Zagnorch was the dog's first name; her full name was Zagnorch Welinskivich)

Sad but true: I didn't even come up with my own user name. But then, I've considered originality to be overrated anyway. None the less, it's the nom-de-web I've gone by since I established my Hotmail account fifteen years ago.

So, what's your story? Don't be shy, now...

Bildtstar is actually the name of a potato race. It's developed by farmers in the area where I live, the municipality Het Bildt. They wanted to name it 'The star from Het Bildt' and so Bildtstar was born.

Like Zagnorch I didn't come up with my name too, but I like the name and I'm a proud citizen of Het Bildt! So next time you eat potatoes, it could be me lying on your plate  Shocked

mumboking comes from "Mumbo Jumbo" from Banjo Kazooie.
For some reason I decided to add "king" on the end.
The first time I used that name was on ROBLOX in 2007.

I've used this username ever since...

I've been Izret since i first got online in '99. It is my last name backwards.
I ended up having to use various numbers do to lost passwords and what not. I have used 101(longest running/most common), 102(on 360/AIM), 103(360/netflix/AIM), 159(AIM only),369(360/AIM).

I did use the tag Toizy at an adult site/forum. It was during that time when not everyone realized i was still a minor and i didn't want to get the member who invited me in trouble should someone decide to google me.

My username on eBay was originally my mothers account. Since i was not old enough to have an eBay account i used hers all the time and just kept it when i got older so i could keep the feedback. Never changed the handle since i always thought that was sketchy of people.

Originally, I went by the handle of Wolfbaine002. The name came about because I was playing MechWarrior with a friend, and I'm horrible with names. I wanted to play with Clan Wolf (I like wolves), and ironically he came up with the name Wolfsbane. However, because of the connotation of the name and because it's a commonly used name, I modified it a little and added my favorite number to further prevent it being confused with another person's name.

Later, when playing a PvP modified World of Darkness MUD, I convinced an Admin to allow me to use an abandoned class - Shadow Dragon. I had to come up with a name, so I came up with Shadowclaw. After a while, when I transitioned to another MUD, I made a ninja character and wanted a Japanese-sounding name. Taking inspiration from Japanese mythos and also from my favorite anime character (Major Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell), I again modified the name a little bit and came up with Shadow Kisuragi.

They need to be reminded how I crushed the uprising 12 long years ago....

My SN came about when I was discharging and distancing myself from the Army.  I was lost and different from those around me that have not served.
