What's The Meaning Behind Your Username?

Post by JPKTrekker »

I've always wondered where some of you people got your usernames from. Some are easy to guess; just a cool word that you like, but others I have no clue about. Include info about your user title and anything else if it has a meaning behind it. What's your story?

Well, my older brother and his friends wanted to have there own little group. They called themselves the Shakaki's. They gave themselves names out of the Bible. I was pulled into the group as ussuall. (there were only 3 of them and almost everything required atleast 4 and they needed someone who could accually remember stuff). Well, I was given the name of Zered Shakaki. Zered is the name of a Valley in the Bible (Zered's valley). Soon after that they decided they needed middle names. So, in the end my full Shakaki name was Zered Jehu Shakaki. I started using the name Zered online 9 or 10 years ago. Since then I have only seen 2 other zereds appear online. I decided I wanted to keep a unique nick like that. So, to separate myself from the other 2 people who have used the nick once (and to my knowledge don't anymore) I added the 003. So, now if there is a Zered003 somewhere. There is a 99% chance it is me.
I enjoy the moments of peace and quite.
You know, when you dont think about anything.
I enjoy all 3 seconds of the day when that happens.

Don't worry, with the number of people pissed off at me lately, I don't likely have long to live to begin with. :lol:

Eh...I dunno...maybe here but not everywhere else as well. LoL. But of course, you know that we get pissed off more often at other people than they get pissed off at us, so, yay. :lol:

I used to be part of the Orion clan, which is a clan for Age Of Mythology. I called myself Titan over there because the expansion pack for the game was called "the Titans", plus Titan depicts power, stength and large size. I decided to keep this name when I came here.

Post by Harrie »

oh, gosh. What does my name mean? well lets see about five years ago i started playing a game called Runescape, and i still do every now and then, but anyways I was at the height of my Harry Potter craze and i wanted to be "Harry" on the game but the name had been taken, no suprise there, so then i changed the spelling to 'Harre', at the time i didn't have the slightest clue as to what i was doing and quit because i couldn't figure it out.

Well about a month later, one of my friends explained how to do everything and i got all excited and went to start playing again. Turns out i forgot my password, go figure. So i started a new character and named him 'Harrie'. Now I'm one of the oldest players in the game, though I'm not the strongest.

The name kinda just stuck with me from there. it's become something of a seperate personality for me. Everywhere i go I'm Harrie, and usually I'm thee Harrie. though on RS my nephew is called 'Harrie1', its funny when we're together and start taking to each other some people seem to stop and look at us for a second.

Well there you go the nearly complete history of my name.

BTW. Cecil, I know where you get your... Laundry done... wait thats not it... I mean where you get your name... Should I tell!?! :twisted:
The Roman Empire did not create prosperity and come to be feared by having meetings and doing paperwork; they did this by killing all who opposed them.
