Origin of Usernames

  1. What does your username mean to you? Maybe it just shows your a big fan of something. Maybe it's just your real name. Or perhaps a deeper meaning? I am TheSilentAce1. TheSilent shows how I'm introverted, shy, and sometimes even scared of other people or even how I sometimes hate everyone on Earth including myself. But I don't have a voice to express the pain I'm in. Ace1 means that I am alone. I'm an only child and had no friends until awhile ago. I got nobody to relate to. And it's me versus the world. That's the origin of my username, what's yours?
  2. My avatar is a character in my favorite video game called League of Legends. His name is Gnar. "Shugi, shugi, shugi!" is something he says when he taunts somebody. It's like making fun of somebody. Like "Hey, come get me! Shugi, shugi, shugi!" I don't know, I just thought it was funny so I made a username out of it.

  3. IGY

    IGY Guest

    IGY = International Geophysical Year.
    It was an international scientific project that lasted from 1 July 1957 to 31 December 1958.

    Of course, that was long before I was born.
    It marked the end of a long period during the Cold War when
    scientific interchange between East/West had been seriously interrupted.

    As a fan of Donald Fagen of Steely Dan, I loved his first solo album - The Nightfly (1982).
    The first song on the album is I.G.Y. (What A Beautiful World). Have a listen:-

    So, why did I pick IGY to identify me on this forum?
    Because the chorus sums up my optimism about completing this challenge successfully:

    "What a beautiful world this will be, what a glorious time to be free."
  4. This whole time I thought that was pikachu lol

  5. The name Lazarus is a Greek baby name. In Greek the meaning of the name Lazarus is: God is my help. In the Bible, Lazarus was brother to Mary and Martha and was raised from the dead after four days.

    My last name Shuttlesworth is from a character in the movie "He Got Game". Who's also my favourite NBA player. Ray Allen. In the movie his name is Jesus Shuttesworth.
  6. Ber

    Ber Fapstronaut

    Mine is just a shortening of my real name. (Pronounce "Ber" as "Bear", not "Bur")

    classicalguitarmonk23 Fapstronaut

    My name is from my passion of listening and playing classical guitar. The monk part is to show that my path of quitting porn is like a monk who takes a vow to commit himself to his practice and 23 was the age I decided to quit PMO for good.
  10. Ikindaknew

    Ikindaknew Fapstronaut

    Mine, IKINDAKNEW, is simply that I basically realized that I had a problem with porn and masturbation ,but I had my head in the sand....I pretty much knew something was wrong....the more I read about the effects of porn addiction, the more I realize that YES I experienced that...
  11. My username was one of the random ones recommended to me by a service I was trying to sign up for when the username that I wanted was taken. It just seemed so wacky and nonsensical that I had to pick it, and now I use it for pretty much everything.
  12. My username is based off the name for a character I invented for a book a while back, and BobS is the shortened version of that name.

    Let The Man Be Born
    It comes from a game of thrones quote "Kill the boy, let the man be born"
    It resembles me killing my PMO addiction and ascending as a different person, no longer a boy with an addiction but a man with good ambitions.

  14. ILoathePwife

    ILoathePwife Fapstronaut

    I didn't put much thought into it. My husband was feeling angry about what porn had done to his life, so he signed up as fuckyouporn. I echoed his name by becoming fupornwife.
  15. Well he's right. Fuck porn
  16. RecoveringScoundrel

    RecoveringScoundrel Fapstronaut

    Mine is exactly how I'd describe myself. A scoundrel is someone who is deceitful, I was deceitful. But recovering. As for my avatar I saw on here a few people say "roar like a fucking lion" and that struck a chord. But my former fiancée called me her bear (big and hairy) so I now roar like a bear instead. I've even set my alarm in the morning to a roaring bear. Terrifying to wake up to but invigorating.

    MsPants Guest

    Mine is just a nickname from my mom as a kid. I use it for other social media. Due to my job, I need to keep my personal life private. People assume that Pants is actually my last name, which makes me laugh when asked if it is. I chose it for this site because it has to do with me, rather than my SOs addiction

  18. Hexenwahn means "witch hunt" in German.
    It is also the sub-title of a Belphegor album.

  19. Just a witty play on words based on Tom Clancy's novel, The Sum Of All Fears. It's an espionage thriller that focuses on a sinister plot to draw the United States and Russia into World War III. But because it's me, and well, who doesn't love a good pint? :D It's TheSumOfAllBeers.
