What is the story behind your username (and your custom title if you have one)?

In my own case it quite simple. Just the first letters in my first and last name. Boring and easy to remember

Jaeryd
Desert Mouse
My wife, Rachel, actually went through high school with a bunch of other girls named Rachel. So, to differentiate herself from the other Rachels, she started to spell her name Raechyl, which she felt was a bit more Celtic-looking (or some such nonsense). When we started going out at 16, I decided I would give my name the same treatment, and thus, Jared became Jaeryd. The 17 comes from the fact that we both like the number 17 for no specific reason, and just "Jaeryd" seemed a bit boring to me.

To be clear, I don't actually spell it that way on anything official. I just use it for usernames and such.

That's a cool name. It kind of evokes an old historical vibe.


Lol you think so ? It just sounds really french Canadian to me.

We don't get French names here in Australia. And the one's I hear aren't exactly inspiring - Gerard Depardieu, Francois Mitterand, Nicolas Sarkozy (ok he's of Hungarian origin) Even Jean Reno doesn't sound that historical.

Yeah okay I see. You could say that his name is almost stereotypically French haha.

Apothecary
PsyCHEdelic
I was BassMonster428 when I first registered. Easy enough. I play bass, it's my prime instrument, and April 28 is my birthday. Then I had it as Pagan Idolatry for a brief bit. Was getting heavy into Wicca, Thelema, Demonolatry, things of the like around then. Apothecary was a name I was going to use in high school for a doom band, but when I couldn't find any people who were seriously committed to being in it, I ditched it, but I still liked the sound of it to the point of setting it as my permanent MS name. Third time seemed to be the charm, because I think it works best of the three: medicine man, shaman, healer. Fits well with a lot of the shit I listen to.

Overrwatcher
I was an 11 year old on Steam who didn't like my previous usernames and wanted something I would stick with. Something that would always be available, sounded "cool" and mildly edgy. And most importantly no numbers.

It kinda stuck over the years, but due to my high-profile controversial history in WoW (was a huge asshole to the asshole hardcore raid community and intentionally leaked a bunch of shit that got them in trouble) combined with people not taking me seriously due to my name AND the announcement of Blizzard's game Overwatch, I've been moving to Overr instead. Same availability, just without the poor reputation, over-edginess, or the nonstop "ARE YOU A SECRET BLIZZ EMPLOYEE" jokes everyone makes.

Paz
News Man
From the very beginning I was called Pazdzioch here but recently I cut it up. This name comes from an awesome Polish sitcom, Świat według Kiepskich, and it is the surname of one of the main characters - Marian Paździoch. When I was a kid, I just cut all my hair off and then my uncle (fan of the show) gave me that nickname. Apparently, I looked just like him




Also, Paz means "Peace" or "Gold" according to this legit source. That's what I am.

Mine is a pseudonym I came up with. I was earlier called 3rdWorldFlowerface and then 3rdWorldFluffyface for a while. It is combination of where I come from and how cute I was as a kid. Anyway got bored with those, so I just changed it simply to reflect my location.
