So im just curious on how you guys came up with your name. I really hate my name, but i have only one name change, so i have to make it count. I really hate "SSX_Nigel" and i regret using that name, so i wanna make a name that is more original.

Please tell me some tips or something on how to make a creative username. Thanks!

Honestly can't help you with a creative or good name. But I can tell you how I got this one.

I was 6 years old, playing Adventure Quest. My first account, Wimpsi8 (I know what the name means now, but at the time I was Norwegian, had no clue and it was a fun word to say) had just gotten eaten by a gecko in-game. I had no idea how to get out, so I wanted a new account. Pressed random keys on my keyboard, got 898ppp. Done doodle, that's that. Stuck with me since, because why change it? I have a few alternate names, but this one gets the job done.

Intersting story 898ppp. I'm still thinking about a good name, but pressing random buttons and letters isnt a bad idea. I only have one chance so i better make it count. I friggin hate SSX_Nigel :grr

Hey there guys,
So I have made several user names up over the years and I usually use the same method every time I do (my current name “Rithek” is no exception.) The way I go about creating a name is very simple, first I open a word document on my computer, next I decide if there are any letters that I really like or want to use in the user name. For my current name I knew going into it that I wanted R and K in the name somewhere. Next I just type out as many different combinations of key presses as possible each on their own line (throwing in vowels randomly.) If I come across something that has potential I try moving the vowels around to make it flow better. But the important part is to not really try to make a cool sounding name just spam out letter combinations until you come across something that sounds cool. Lastly I always search Google to make sure my name doesn’t mean something offensive or is a product of some kind. Hope this helps in your quest for a new name!

My username is a little bit connected to my IRL name. Some time ago I appended some letters to it and it came out like this.
Probably a bad idea to use my real name in such a way, but I got stuck with it since then, so I use it pretty much everywhere.
If you want to get a unique try to tie it up with something from real life that relates to you. Maybe something you like, for example a pizza :heh

My username came from my Xbox Live GT, so I just stuck with that.

PS It was randomized.

First I wanted SSXTricker, that was taken. Then I wanted Tunes, that was taken too.. grr

So I made SSX Tricky and Emu short for my RL name. Ain't big science.

The only thing I came up with Nigel, I know it´s bad but I just want to throw it out there:

LegininateSSXFreestyler

"Nigel" backwards= Legin, which "almost" sounds like legitimate.

Needed a good strong name to go with some good strong SSX scores I had back in the day. Like a decade later and I still use Titan as a username for stuff.

SSX Titan < Titan. :heh

Nomysp'sAngel > NA :heh

gondee is an edit of an old middle school nickname. I used to spell it gon-d, but then everyone though my nickname was an edited version of gonad.

I chose mine because when I started work at a printers I was the only bloke with long hair which was half way down my back, when everyone else had the short back and sides cut - One of the printers nicknamed me the long haired Yeti :D

My real name is Jakub. In Polish, most names and nouns can be written in the diminutive form, and my name goes Jakub -> Kuba -> Kubuś (yes, there are three levels; the first one is formal, the second is a casual day-to-day form and the third one is mainly for small children or other cute or playful things like pets). I took Kuba and replaced the a with i, which is something I saw my uncle do. He is called Hubert and he always called himself Hubi in games and for some reason I thought that was really cool.

It was a long time ago.

I can't give you tips, but here's my story...

When I was in primary school, everyone had to make an account for this school service we were using. The teachers name was also Peter, and he said to us not to make our usernames something random, and to make it something we could all identify eachother with. As an example, he said that he's not gonna make his username "Peter Glass Jar" or something that weird. And that's about it. It's really stuck with me and resonated since. And is make seem bad, but it's way better than "peterulz02" (I made it when I was 8 or something, M'kay?).
