Title: Where did you get your Nickname?
Post by: CATS on 12 January 2006, 20:44:08
Where did you get the Nickname you use on these forums?

Some stories are fairly interesting when this gets asked. Mine's a little interesting I suppose.

CATS is a character from Zero Wing, the 1989 game for the Sega Mega Drive or 'Genesis'. He uttered the now famous badly-translated words "All Your Base Are Belong To Us..." that helped start an entire craze of photoshopping and game-references made by companies on their websites as big as HP and Microsoft.

To find out more, just visit this site and have a quick look around: CLICK HERE! (http://allyourbase.planettribes.gamespy.com/)

I've used it on various forums since around 2001 and it's just stuck with me since.

Playaveli is basicly a derivative of "Makaveli" which was Tupac (2pac) Shakur's pseudonym.

2 reasons i choose this derivative:

1. Once I downloaded a very good remix of one 2pac Song. This remix was called "Playaveli remix"!

2. The word "play" is in it. I don't think i have to explain this any further ;) !


Last but not least it sounds really nice. I like it!

The name Jonty Rhodes, apart from being the name of a South African cricketer was put together by myself and Jhary Conel.

We were stuck for a name for our first career on Amiga SWOS 94/95. Thought it sounded rather funky so it stuck.

My Teammates of my Reallife Soccerteam called 1. FC Oberahr gave me that name, because in training I offen beat them with some tricky moves and I'm also a bit crazy, that's why they call me Crazy before I became this name, so it is a Mix between Crazy and Ronaldinho = Craizinho  ;D

Post by: swoozh on 16 January 2006, 22:56:37
The reason of why I have chosen 'swoozh' as nickname is a bit weird.

A long time ago, when I was a little swoozh, I was hanging around in the mall with some friends after buying some shoes. We talked a bit about nicknames on the internet and I was thinking about a good one. So after a while I looked at the shoesbox and I saw 'swoosh' on it. ('swoosh' is the name of the Nike-sign. (http://swoosh)) I liked that name, I don't know why :)

Well, it was cool back then to replace the letter 'o' by '0', so it was 'sw00sh' for a while. After that it was cool to replace the letter 's' in the 'z', so then it was 'sw00zh'. But I got tired of the zeros, so now it's swoozh.

BTW, nice to read everyone's story about his nickname. Except the story from Mark, that was boring :P

Hehe, i thought "Swoozh" had something to do with "swos"...:P

Post by: dzem on 19 January 2006, 14:13:26
one day, about 8 years ago (when i was much chatting on IRC) i decided to change my nick. i didnt want anything cool.. it had to be stupid one:) The first stupid thing that came to my mind was "konfitur", which means "home made jam" and sounds rather silly for polish people.
Later my friends started to call me dzem which means just "jam", cause it was shorter.  and so it stayed:)

actually, ss.de is the first online place where I used dzem instead of konfitur.. and still don't know why:)
Title: Re: Where did you get your Nickname?
Post by: Playaveli on 19 January 2006, 14:16:26
hehe, i am glad you did! Dzem is much better than konfitur! hahaha, i never heard that a self made marmelade is playing SWOS...

muahaha! :D :D: :D

Post by: dzem on 19 January 2006, 15:25:16

my grandmother would turn you into a jam, if she read that.. she always says that konfitur's are better than some jam from shops:)
but don't worry, i won't tell her:P

All my nicks had something to do with animals, but Falcon was the first one that felt right, so I kept it.

Falconius is a variation of the, because you can nowhere get Falcon as nick anymore and nobody does the latin thing with names anymore :D

My first nick used to be Patacas. I am a Sporting Lisbon fan and a few years ago when i played soccer for my college i was a right back. At that time, Patacas was the substitute of the main right back of Sporting and he was really weak  ;D My friends started calling me that so they could joke around with me, just for fun.

Then i changed to Ludgi (my real name is Luis), which is a mix between Luis and Luigi (in italian). ;D

It's from a Thomas Hardy poem 'Drummer Hodge'

"Young Hodge the Drummer never knew –
  Fresh from his Wessex home –
The meaning of the broad Karoo,
  The Bush, the dusty loam,
And why uprose to nightly view
  Strange stars amid the 'gloam'."

My nickname, is a real nickname. When i was 14 or 15 i change my hair style so oftten and there was some funny creation, so on one day a person call me "Du hairfu du" ("You harfu you") don't know what that word means, but i found it funny and then a few friends call me this name since this day.
So have think about that. This FU is a red sock with black button as eyes and will use as mascot at 1st class on school. So i modified it so that the letters FU was written big on web.

He got his nickname from the famous terrorist Stromberg:

My first name is Kurt. In Italian it's Corrado. So, I mixed them up:

Kur (Kurt) Rado (Corrado) => Kurrado

So, my nickname has Germanic and Romanic roots :p

NB: And it's weird, but I discovered that Kurrado is actually a Spanish word: It means 'hard work' or something :)

Can some Spanish guys on this forum give some extra info, perhaps ?

when I was using the internet and communicator software (IRC) for the first time in the academic web way back in the nineties I had to came up with a nickname. "xflea" was the first thing that came to my mind after about 10 seconds of thinking...:) and I stick to it ever since.

Flea is one of my ever favourite musicians. x is for the total anonymity that I experienced in the internet communication that days. altogether - xflea

oh and btw - it's xflea, not Xflea or XFlea, thank you very much :P

That's easy:

As a big fan of Doom Legend Saint Vitus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Vitus_%28band%29 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Vitus_%28band%29), I chose the nick and shortened it to Vitus.

The Band itself took the name from christian saint Vitus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitus).

Also it's a reference to the Black Sabbath Song St. Vitus Dance appeared on the 1972 release Vol. 4. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sabbath_Vol._4 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sabbath_Vol._4)

I had the great honour to see Pentagram in Bielefeld and Hanover last month. It was a unexplainable experience to me, seeing Bobby performing right before me.
Even in my wildest dreams I wouldn't expect to see Pentagram live on stage in this life. It was the first appearance in Europe in nearly 40 years..

A dream became true... :D

well, its childish enough, but at the time I started playin online I was thinking about a "good" nick.
dunno why, but a song by kris kross (early 90thies) came to my mind, which goes like: "it's da bomb,
I know you hear me comin..." It impressed me, so I chose "Da Bomb".

 check it out:

later everyone just called me "bomb", so I changed to this then.

Post by: Fruit Mec on 09 October 2011, 03:08:52
My nickname is a mixture of my “Spitzname” and the team I used in Sensible Soccer.

From the middle of the 80s until the late 80s, we had a small community called “Jumpman neV” of 3 regularly members and some guests to play Jumpman on the C64. My “Spitzname” was “Mäck”, but it was not possible to enter 4 characters to the highscore list and it was also not possible to enter a “ä”, so I changed the writing of my “Spitzname” from “Mäck” to “Mec”.
That's the story of the first part of my nick name :)

Later, in the early 90s, I got my Amiga 500. It's my Amiga until now and perfect working :)
I played in soccer team at this time and talk about that I've got an Amiga. One of the other team members had also an Amiga, so that we meet us to ***censored*** games.
During ***censored***, there was one game that he want to show me. This was the first time I played Sensible Soccer, of course I got many ADF, but I it was the best soccer game I played before.
Some days later was the beginning of our Sensible Soccer Community. One other of the old Jumpman community, a new one and me, some times some guests.
We played every week and the looser of the first round called “Team Telekom”, because he has to call the pizza taxi :)
During the first years, we do also 2-3 tournaments with 6-8 players a year. Totally there was 10 different players who has participate at our tournaments.
The tournaments we played until the middle of the 90s and our weekly games until 1998, then I moved from near Cologne to near Hamburg.
I remember as it was yesterday. Our first version was 1.1 Then, there was a report about a new version in Amiga Joker and I called a small shop closed to cologne to order the game for me and I ride of my bike to the shop to get version 1.2 The same for first SWOS version, I buy in the same shop.
The next SWOS versions I don't buy, because I was thinking only for updated teams I want not spend more money. Now I know, there are also some updates in playing like heading during standing.
Long story, short explanation. The second part of my nick name is coming from the team I used in sensible soccer.
We don't used national or club teams, we used the custom teams and my team was fruit town, so I changed to Fruit Mec.

Mine is quite tenuous.

My real name is Leo. I was named by my parents just after my star-sign although whenever I meet somebody new, they always ask whether it's short for 'Leopold' or something. My best friend finds this funny so decided to call me 'Theo'.

I'm a pretty logical chap so I became known as 'theologic'. The whole thing grew further and it has merged into 'Theologistic' as a mix of logical and always on the move on the football pitch.

Theologistic has just stuck and is now my user name on any game (and is also my Xbox gamer tag).

My name "CrypBat" comes from an canadian Death Metal Band called Cryptopsy. The "Bat" ist their mascot. So I mixed the two words and thought it sounded nice  8).
I´m a big Metal fan so a Nickname from a Metal Band was the only logical choice for me  ;).

Gravedigger-Sydney -well Gravediggers (or Undertakers) is the nickname of supporters of Partizan Belgrade! Named so because of their black and White Strip and proximity of the home ground to one of Belgrade's cemeteries. Address of the club is Humska Street no.1 Belgrade  (Humka-burial mound)

First I thought you got your nick from this band.  ;D
