    The title is self explanatory, there's no need to get into more details.

    I'll start: Long story short, when I was about 10 I decided to get a nickname for games and stuff like this, my first idea was to pick "LORD" after I saw my grandpa' using some razorblades called LORD. I managed to find an image to show you guys:
    [​IMG]

    Few years later, when I started playing games online, obviously the nickname was so common and was already taken. I can't remember exactly the game I was playing, but I remember it used email adresses for users in game and identic usernames were allowed. One day I decided to check the leaderboard, so I searched for my nickname, that's when I saw I was the 1027th player to pick the username "lord". And that's how I decided to use this as my username pretty much everywhere in the future. It's been about 10 years since I picked it and it's the only username I use online.
    Not the best choice, it's hard to be taken seriously when your username is "lord1027", try to do a business with someone with that name, everyone will assume I'm just a little kid, but it could be worse, I guess.

    Anyway, this is my story :) How did you pick your username?

One morning after a gig at like 3-4 am the band and I were eating in a little breakfast nook... I ordered oatmeal which was like the one thing the waitress had to make and she got mad she had to make it... came back, through the bowl on the table at me and said... "here yea go captainoat" guys in the band started calling me that and got a bunch of other people doing it too, so it just kind of stuck.. I use it when captain is already taken

    My is a bit strange, some time ago I was semi pro gamer on wacraft 3 area, and as I am Russian I had a Russian nick name Rojdeniy_v_CCCP, it is mean Born in USSR, I was not able to use same nick during tournaments as it was hard to english players, so I took RVS (first letter from each word in old nick), 2141 came from my old home phone number.

    1444 is a unique number combination of my locker in school. Little did I know that I was going to carry on with the number that has gotten lots of people asking how i came about the combination.

    I usually use a related name that my Xbox spat out when suggesting a new gamertag. I decided to have one slightly different, so people couldn't just Google the username and hunt me down or whatever. (Paranoid or sensible, you decide).
    Plus, the 'Mr' bit sounds pro in my opinion. Is there another 'Mr' on the forum?
