I came up with my username when I was 9 iirc. I was playing an online flash game I don't remember and I thought of using my initials of my name and surnames (J, G and B ) but a friend told me to add "master" because it "sounded cool" :Kappa:

randumb nickname. I thought there was an option to change my nickname so I put this. Turns out I was wrong. If anyone's interested it means 'EXTRERMINATE' in turkish, but with a typo.

My username was a shitty acronym I made when I was like 9-10
It meant Raven eating a blue grapefruit which spells REABG that I made to REBAG because I thought it sounded cooler

Laser tag was where I thought it up; the reason why I thought it up was because I used to be an extremely angry person (it was kinda ridiculous, too), and I guess something related to fire kinda fit with anger.

btw, sand, where did 'ilvpag' come from?

In seventh grade my friends pestered me to get an AIM account. I came up with patrickgh3 in a rush since they were staring over my shoulder. Patrick is my first name, and gh3 stands for the game Guitar Hero 3 which I liked at that time. I wish I had come up with something better and that didn't use my first name, but oh well. I kept procrastinating on thinking up a new name and now here we are.

REBAG, your story is pretty cool.
Pat, you already have another username. :denKamilia_v2:

Mine is 4 random consonants and a random vowel (older brother's idea), and we made a list of names with the letters rearranged until I found something that I liked and thought sounded cool.  Every time you guys misspell my name as Wolks or Kslow or something, those were all potential usernames at one point. :Kappa:

Why are you complaining about being a meme? this is a positive thing

Mi nick comes from an old text-based rpg called extremelot. Kendot was one of those classes... Libero means "free" in italian, and was tbe first word I found opening a random page of a dictionary

Kilik's repeated phrase (B attack) in Soul Calibur II. Pretty much.
