Title: Why have you chosen that name?

K Arthur90 - February 21, 2009 02:50 AM (GMT)
I always wondered how people chose their nick names for runescape. Actually nick names for everything on the internet...
So here I ask: Why have you chosen the name you currently use on your character?

I start:
K Arthur90 because my real name is Artur (w/o h :P) and I wanted to give it a "medieval look", so I added the "King"/"k" (even not knowing that there were already a king Arthur in-game :rolleyes:), and 90 is my birth year.

Craig is my 1st name, Lockyer is my 2nd. 1 was my old Lucky number (8 is now, don't ask why!)

So I came up with Craiglock1, which I use (Just like my Password to stuff), completely everywhere! (Except for, my user is Craigage there lol :lol:

Wolfclaw104 - February 21, 2009 01:53 PM (GMT)
Eh, I like wolves, what can I say? I did claw because it sounded the most threatning....remember I was young when I made this name :lol: . Btw 104 isn't my lucky number, 88 ftw!

Runeter2 - February 21, 2009 02:46 PM (GMT)
Ok, my name is AlexAhnon because mixing my first name Alex and my middle name Ahnon togheter. Runeter2 is because i mixed by using Rune as first as its runes and rune armour which makes it cool, and then eter which in my language means eater so it became Runeter But why 2 after Runeter because i forgot Runeter's password so i had to make another account.

Hellbound487 - February 21, 2009 07:54 PM (GMT)
no idea how i got my name. i guess i wanted it to sound cool and stuff and i put 487 because it all adds up to 19 and that was my football number lol.

and no it isnt a typo of hellhound

starwolf_ftw - February 21, 2009 09:00 PM (GMT)
Lol I chose my last name for some reasons :

1) I wanted it to be somewhat of a represenative of my last name, which is Wolfe

2) I wanted it to be somewhat based off one of my favorite characters of all the games I have played, Starwolf

3) I ended the name with Ftw because I think that there will be a Starwolf game in the future :rolleyes: , which i know will never happen, and that he pwns in brawl, which makes him FTW!

K Arthur90 - February 21, 2009 11:02 PM (GMT)

dflame58 - February 23, 2009 12:32 AM (GMT)
Mine is kinda a long story. So i wanted to create an account on that microsoft gaming website. Dont remember what it is now. This was like 8 yrs ago. For some reason I couldnt create an account at my house. A month or so later my family took a vacation to the Bahamas and during one night I went to the teen club. They had internet access there so I created my account there. They put random names that you could choose or use to jog your mind. one was dafire. I was like naahh too dumb. I liked the fire part. Changed it to flame took out the "a" because it looked lame to me. so then i had dflame. wanted numbers so randomly chose 57. So my normal gaming name is dflame57. That was my first rs char. I forgot the pass and tried to recover didnt work. So i remade and i have dflame58.

K Arthur90 - February 23, 2009 02:48 AM (GMT)

iamcoool11 - February 26, 2009 02:20 PM (GMT)
well, mostly because i am, partly because i was eleven when i made this account, and all because of a missplelling.

Deasthana - March 31, 2009 06:29 PM (GMT)
My name comes from my brother studying ancient greek and making weird things with it.

He used Deasthana as the sister of the main character in his own-written stories.

Deasthana comes from "de" which is part of a phrase (men... de...). Means "on the one hand... on the other hand...)

Asthènès in greek means weak (was basically asthenea, which changed)

Asthana seems to have sounded cooler to my brother.

Using Deasthana makes it "weak on the other hand", but let you suppose that there is a "on the one hand" part, logically it would be "strong".

That is not mentionned in the name though. My brother used to translate Deasthana as "The one who looks weak", which would mean that she is strong, but doesn't look like she is...

Hope you understood, all of this is kinda messy -.-

Then I took that name first cause i liked it,
Second cause my brother had an account IG, and I found it fit to keep the name of the sister in his stories.
And also when i first created my character, I wanted to make it a skiller. So it would have been well ranked (in that time hiscore ranking only went to 500k, not to 2m as now) but low combat... which have changed somehow... But if I had sticked to that, I would have been looking weak, but I'd have been well ranked... So the name would have been weel chosen, or kind of...

Lit - March 31, 2009 07:03 PM (GMT)
Mine's kind of odd... it's a mixture of the letters from my name in spanish (closest translation would be Alex), plus an u. Some friends bgai calling me Lit on Tip.It lately, and I ended liking it. :lol:

HA HA, very funny. I sadly regret my name, made it in like, 5th grade or something...

If I remember right, I was into yu-gi-oh or whatever it's called back then, so I chose Redeyes or whatever from that, then I used the locker numbers i had in elementary school (2, 4, and 96). I would have made a new one if I didn't have so much good stuff on here <_<

lordblack656 - April 3, 2009 09:59 PM (GMT)
weird, my locker number in middle school was 96 too, =P
