Explain your username!

Post by kensethfan on Wed Apr 05, 2017 4:03 pm

Self-explanatory. Explain your username.

The username I use here is an old one. I went by kensethfan because at one time I was a Matt Kenseth fan. Then Martinsville 2015 happened, and I lost a ton of respect for him. Decided that I couldn't support him anymore after that.

These days I go by gone-sovereign. That's because "Gone Sovereign" is the opening track on Stone Sour's House of Gold and Bones, which is my personal favorite album of all-time.

Well, mine U.N. has its origins in NASCAR consul game racing. Back in the NASCAR Chase for the Cup 2005 PS2 days, I used a variation of my current U.N. (I had a "05" at the end of the name as opposed to the "1" that is here now). I pretty much have used some variation of this U.N. throughout my consul NASCAR gaming career. Currently I'm using one with "15" at the end for my XBOX One screenname.

My username is just the first letter of my first name followed by my last name. The 365 is just a random three-digit number I came up with (probably because it is, most of the time, how many days there are in a year).

I know, I'm so creative.

The Wall is a reference to the 2nd greatest Pink Floyd album of all time. 91 is the race number I used when I raced NR2003 for my few and far between starts.

My username was actually a misspelling of "Rovaniemi", a location in Finland. I'm pretty sure Ceej ran his league at Finland at one point. The name grew in me since I first joined the old forum.

PackerMan comes from the fact that I'm a Green Bay Packer fan (obviously) and the 71 comes from me being a fan of Bobby Isaac, who was my favorite driver from the 70s.

Obviously, I wasn't alive back then, but after going back through and learning about the history of NASCAR, I really like Isaac's driving style and his attitude and approach to life, and the 71 was the number he used when he won his one and only championship in 1970.

Mine is just my Youtube username with a number change (47 to 9). This coming about because I joined Youtube during a Nascar Stop Motion faze, and 47 was Ambrose's number at the time. I used 9 on the forums because I joined these forums after he switched teams.

Mine is what I used on every platform i've used. PSN, Wii, Miniclip. It was Lucstar8 before Jr went to the 88.

I was 9 so that's why the star is there lol. My steam gimmick is Luc Pelican because some one couldn't say my last name, and said Peliper (the pokemon) instead and created the gimmick that i was a Pelican.

I KNEW IT.

I dunno why I simply used my name as mine. Guess I wasn't creative enough to make something up, but I might have it changed to what I've been using more recently on a few other forums (ElectricWolf71).

easy

b - Bi or the sound of the letter B is the diminutive of Biel, which is in turn, diminutive for Gabriel.

soyuz - I use this name since around I'd say 2011. It's a weird story, I was 12, and I found myself playing the story mode of CoD: Black Ops. One of the early missions involved destroying a Soyuz rocket. I wanted to play online for the first time but had no idea of what to make the username, so I just added the b in front of the soyuz and voilá.

My name was simply thought up when I was playing Clash of Clans back in 2015. Randomly came to me, and now it's my name for every site I am in.

Interestingly enough, my favourite 'animal' is a dragon, and 'Blazing Empire' seems fitting, don'tcha think?

The HD comes for my go at trying to be a YouTuber......let's say....it was horrendous.

An' there ya have it! My name in a nutshell. :p

I used to be a Culinary Specialist (cook) in the Navy and I was on the USS Harry S. Truman, and it's ship classification is CVN 75, hence the number.

Oddly enough, this is the only place where I still use this name.

Post by SpeedDemon37 on Sun Apr 09, 2017 1:23 pm

My username has one of the more unoriginal stories behind it.

I have a bad tendency to be extremely indecisive at times, and in 2012 I literally delayed my sign-up here for weeks because I couldn't think of a username that I thought suited me. Eventually I went with SpeedDemon37. Speed Demon sounded appropriate for a motorsports forum, it was a name that I was called by my friends (like... only one or two times), but mostly it was because the song that played in the introduction sequences to FlatOut 2 (one of my favorite non-stock car racing games) is "Demon Speeding" by Rob Zombie.

37 has been my favorite number since I was five years old (prior to that, it was 4, which is still my second-to-favorite). Even though Mark Martin is my favorite driver of all time, my favorite number ended up being that of my favorite Busch Series driver (David Green). I really do think that I would have come to like the number, anyway. For whatever reason I like the way that it sounds, I think that it looks good on race cars, and the fact that it's a divisor of 111, 222, etc. is also something that I find to be interesting.

Needless to say, it's not very original and I've since come up with a different username that I use for my Steam and Minecraft accounts (and maybe Discord in the future), but at this point I've been using it for so long on EFR that I continue to use it for any accounts related to it.

My name is just something I came up with.  The number is the only part of the name that has meaning as 1999 was the year I got into NASCAR.

For those of you that know me on other platforms, the name Azzdoritos46 (the name I use basically everywhere else) was a nickname that some of the GOMA guys gave me, combining my last name with Doritos, after I started running a Doritos car in GOMA and I just ran with it.  The 46, which most of you know, is the number I run in every offline league I'm a part of.

I created it for Racing-Forums around when I became a Keselowski fan, and a Dodge fan by extension ("Never Neutral" being their marketing slogan in 2011/12). I thought about changing it but couldn't come up with anything interesting; I'm not really happy with my username elsewhere either.

I use Z from my 1st name and my whole last name and 59 has been my number since I was racing either in NR or real life and 9 that was my favourite number when Marcos Ambrose drove the 9 for Richard Petty Motorsports from 2011-2014. But in different Forums I use my username FitzwaterAustralia59 because of my last name, my Nationality and my favourite number

Explain my username... well, it has an F... followed by the number 1, followed by the letters f, a, and n, and it closes with the number combination of 1 and 2, in order to make twelve. That is the most accurate explanation of my username I can possibly come up with.

Cynon was a name I gave to a Dungeons and Dragons character I had when I was 12 or 13. Afterwards I started using the name for my Frostling leaders in Age of Wonders, and from there it kinda stuck.

The same applies to another username I've used (LoL and NNRacing most notably), Cyriaan.

I made my username as BWard is short for my normal name, but boy88 is there because when I joined this forum in January 2012, I was a big Dale Jr fanboy and quite a deluded one as well. I don't know if you can, but honestly I would like to know if I could get to change my name on here to just BWard as I just want to sound like a normal person again. Laughing
