PostSubject: What's in a [Display] Name?   Wed Feb 06, 2013 11:27 am

Okay, so in this thread I'm asking you to post any and all display names you have used during your time on RS.  You're welcome to add some explanation to the name should you feel so inclined, and you can post names of your non-mains if you like as well. Go!

Snap -
Paper Chair - Completely random user name, and what I entered the Nest as upon my first visit.
Ganrealminty - A troll display name during the great Mint Cake crisis
Paperferix - A Paper Chair version of Darkferix... he wasn't pleased. Note that I never took "Dorkferix"
P4P3R - A play on P3PSI's name. Was difficult to distinguish between our banter in the chat.
Paper Table - Not so creative
Claire Danes - A hawtie (yes, even today); see "Romeo and Juliet"
Paper Claire - Combination of Paper Chair and Claire Danes
Ace Pear - A very tasty cider beverage.
Roonmar - An evil, alternate personality of Maroon.
West of Eden - I had just finished reading Steinbeck's "East of Eden"... I went the other direction.
Paper Dragon
Rack of Lamb - I ate some lamb chops.
Prarie Dawn - My second favorite Sesame Street character

Villiama - when I first started playing I wanted to have my real name. Unfortunately it was already taken so I decided to add an A at the end.

Phonixz666 - My first name choosen by my sister as I needed a game name, she at first suggested Phoenix but after trying billions of combinations could not get it and she came up with the idea of getting rid of the e and adding a z on the end. I was then suggested the numbers 666 which were easy ones to remember so I went with it.
Divinephonix - My Skillers Log in name
In Light - My skillers now actual name was originally Phonixz's
Divine 2 - Terrible choice regretted as soon as I pressed accept
Aucupium - Latin for Bird (translation does vary)
Phonixz- Name I go by mostly now. Finally got to drop the 666 which has lead to no more religious people trying to debate me
x Electra - What can I say I love the name Electra and the marvel character Elektra. Elektra is also a cool person in greek mythology
P H O N I XZ - Not a clue what I was thinking, needless to say I hated it the entire time

There has been more but I can't remember them

AutumnsEdge - Name that I've started with
AutmusFirtix - Name suggested by Maroon, an old time nester, mainly because he always spelled AutumnsEdge wrong and eventually just started typing it random
AutmuImpaler - Forgot who suggested this one but it stuck for a bit
A u t u mn - Regretted this name. So bad.

As far as I remember thats the only names I've had...might of been one or two more but they didn't stick so I don't remember them.

Vindico Cui- Thought it sounded cool, and wanted something Latin in my name. Roughly I understand Vindico Cui to be 'to avenge you', but I have been told by various people that the verb tense is wrong/various things.



Not going to put my username, as I made this account when I was about 11 years old. It's fairly embarrassing to me, at this point.

Vindico is to avenge or to Punish whereas Cui is to fall or drop

My Latin is rusty though Smile

now that it's spelled awkwardly, but whatever.
DearCelestia - The opening to the letters that are sent to princess Celestia. Couldn't fit
princess in there, but I use the prefix in game lol.

Barca161 - Original name and whatnot. I wanted the name Barca, but it was obviously taken. So I added a random number at the end.

Barcap0wer - Probably the best name of all time ;]

B A R CA - Just another attempt to change my name to something close to Barca. Now after changing I realize this name looked pretty bad lol.

Barca - My current display name that I will most likely never change.

1st one: Secret, for me to know and you lot to never find out.
These are ones I can remember:
FLAIVIMABLE - I was trying to think of a name and I saw flammable on the back of a deodorant can, so I went through endless combinations until this one.
T0RM3NT3D - Some weird crap.
Dobs - A play on the character Dobby from Harry Potter, both my brother and I had Dobs and Dobbs as our name and we still call each other dobby/dobs/dobbs despite the fact that we are 15, nesrlly 16 and 22. LEGENDARY

Current Name:

Turkey Soup - Nothing needs saying about this name, it is legend, wait for it.............. DARY. I honestly don't thik i'll ever change it unless "Max" or "Maximilian" comes available. *Brb checking them*

stitie---> the username i started with. It alludes to my 2nd name (stes).
nestitie---> whoever can guess where this comes from is a true riddle-hero!
stitmeister---> alluding to the mighty stifmeister, the nickname of 'stifler' in the american pie-movies
stit shady---> not so original maybe, but i came with this idea after the introduction of solomon store, in which you could pick the title 'the real'

I had one before when I first started that's a nickname around home (keeping that one private however Razz ). After like 3 years of playing me and a mate irl changed our names to ArNoneeMoose and AhNoneeMoose. The reasoning for this was 1. Funny if we stood next to each other as we were the same combat level and so it looked like two of the same person were next to each other. 2. It sounded (phonetically) like anonymous and 3. Moose are awesome.
Finally, changed to my current name PrimalMoose because I <3 dunging now and moose are still awesome Smile

Also, if anyone attempts to say "meese" or "mooses" I'll set an angry beaver on them :p

Kirfalex - My original name (trademark kirf 07). Kirf doesn't mean anything (I think) and Alex isn't my name either. Quite odd i must say.

Pelkka Narri - Only the real Nesters remember this (I doubt no-one). I was young and I thought that this would be a funny name. It's finnish and means... well something. (nothing inapproative)

Keula - It's the name of my Youtube account, pretty bad. Also means something in finnish.

Kirf - People tend to call me by this name.

Merryxmarse - Ouh cheese I hope Weetsy won't see this.

Mikeyzdragon - original. first name, first letter of last name, favourite thing at the time (rs would not allow mid-word capitalization)

MikeyzDragon - capitalized when name changes were released. better distinction and makes it look better.

MrNatPortman - joke for veg's MrEmmaWatson

DragonMikeyz - just some fun to switch it up

Mieky - Amy misspelled my name several times like this so I used it.

back to MikeyzDragon cuz it looks best.
