I love playing Ark: Survival Evolved on my PS4... when deinonychus were released, I got a red and white one I named Bloodfeather. She is now my character... long story short lol.

Frostclaw is my Ark buddy, and his deino was named exactly that... Frostclaw.

Before, when I was Sav038... My nickname is Sav and my birthday is 03/08/05 so.. 038

Jett is my only grandchild, and he calls me Papa (the paternal grandfather has been called Papa in my family for at least 4 generations, and maybe more).
My kids call my dad poppy.
And my mom Oma which is just grandma in German but she refused to use the english version lol.
My oldest son and my dad are born on the same day 53 years apart so I named my son after my father...I would have been a junior so I named my son the 2nd lol

Just before I signed up, I was finishing a campaign in Rome Total War II. I was upgrading my ports and one of the options is to build a fishing port, titled "Fishmonger". Roma Victrix

Jett's middle name is Edward, which is also my middle name, and was my father's first name. . . not that I'm proud of that or anything.

RikkiTikkii

RikkiTikki is from well, the story Rikki Tikki Tavi lol about a mongoose who chanted that. I read it in elementary and people tend to call me that
I think it’s a decent username

I would of used my game tag, LaunieSpiral (which is where my nickname Launie is derived from) but I thought a personal user would do here hahaha

See title. Mine is my old AOL screen name and I used it when I was just a lurker with no plans of sticking around. Now that I've been here awhile I want to change to something better but I have no idea what! How did you guys pick your usernames?

I want to hear from everyone but coralbandit I'm tagging you specifically only since it was asked in that podcast, and it made me curious too lol.

Not really much reason. I had to pick a random name for a game awhile back and I used jkkgron but then I locked myself out. After that I used jkkgron2 and I guess it just kinda stuck lol.

I feel you there. My PSN is deviiants because that's what the kid I bought the ps4 from picked. His digital downloads were part of the deal. But I don't use it elsewhere because I don't know if he's still using it lol.

Mine is a reference to my favorite band, twenty one pilots. But I'm bored of it too haha! Would people recognize me though? Idk, any name ideas for me, too?

It's a nickname for a character on a TV show I loved. It just kind of stuck.

Yes if you leave your picture until everyone knows its you. Make it good you can only change 2 or 3 times only forever. 30 days in between changes. Choose wisely young grasshopper.

Mine is from a Radiohead song.
 

mimo91088

Song lyrics are a good thing to think about. I do have something in mind, but I'm hesitant to explain further. I don't discount the possibility that I've ticked someone off enough to steal it out of spite, plus im not 100% in love with it yet.

You could put it in your signature for awhile too.

I wasn't expecting to be very active on here so I jus used a little joke nickname some of my friends call me and added fish on the end. Now I want to change it so it matches my youtube username but feel like noone would recognise me

I've had many different names, this one was just a random draw in my head. I'm kind on the run from certain things which is why I didn't use a previous user, and I felt that someone hiding under an alias would use the phrase "[name], Just [name]" and "Drog" was just what came to me. Sounded silly so I went with it!

My nickname was my AOL screen name from the very early days of America Online, before it changed to AOL. I am one of the few AOL subscribers who do not have any numbers in my screen name. I have had that name for over 30 years.

Since I was like 6 I always used Chewbacca773 for games and other 6-year old stuff
( click the link in bio for free v-bucks!! ), and while it looks out of place on a fish forum, I used it anyway.

Mods please don't ban me that was a joke I'm not a scammer who targets 6 yr olds

Bettybrown922

Betty Brown is a character in a Kurt Vonnegut book, Slapstick. Her real name is Eliza and she has a twin named Wilbur. Together they're geniuses, but apart they're not as bright. When apart, they call themselves Betty Brown and Bobby Brown. I started calling myself Betty Brown online years ago but added the 922 for a few forums where Bettybrown wasn't available.

My usual username for things is HorseGirl115. So I just changed things around to fit a fish forum 11/5 is my birthday

When I first moved to China, I was one of very few foreigners in the city. Enough so that people would stop and take pictures sometimes. Thankfully that part is over. There were quite a few foreigners before the covid hit (a lot of people were travelling during the holiday and couldn't make it back).
Anyways, all the locals called me "Big Beard". My beard is not that big, but nobody grows them here. And it is a handsome beard, if I do say so myself.
Big Beard in Chinese is "Da Hu zi"

My son gave me this name after the movie, 'Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai'. Sorta my rap name, I do use it on other places!
 

chromedome52

Member
I believe this question was just asked a few months ago. It comes up every year or so, the oldest thread on record is [this one] from 2017, just after the forum software upgrade.

Friend of mine used to call me Chrome Dome when we were in chat back on Fishnet. (I called him Fuzz Face for his hillbilly beard). When I switched providers, I tried to register with chromedome, but it was taken, so I added my birth year of 52. Prior to that I used a few different screen names, but this one kind of stuck.

Mines just a reference to a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s court, I think most can guess what 79 might reference I kind of want to change it. I do love this thread though!

Also faydout the Bends is my fav Radiohead album, and street spirit is a great tune. I’m showing my age but the first time I saw them was in 95 opening for REM and that album had just come out. Loved them ever since
 

faydout

Member
I've never actually seen them live. I spent alot of those years overseas, I got to see some cool shows (the Cure in Rome for instance) but couldn't ever make a Radiohead show happen. They're the only ones out of the top 5 - 10 of my all time favorites that I've never seen. To date myself, I had just gotten stationed in Pearl Harbor and one of the first things I did to get out and see the scene was going to an official release party for OK Computer, my favorite album of theirs.

Hope that stays far in the past. There aren't fishlore appropriate words for how bad a username that is.


Mine was my fish-related tumblr username. Chosen because, well, I have a fish problem.

I am WAS with you here. My old username used to be bettaandcorylover. Now its BettasAreSuperior. Also, I was scared as well ppl would forget me BUT you can start a thread about changing your username AND put it in your signature, mention it frequently as well. A BUNCH of people still recognize me. But I see your fear because I was there. About changing your username, we need more information about you so just tell us about you and we can go from there! Also, you can P.M some folks.

Jett is my grandson's name (short for Jethro), and he calls me Papa, so that's where mine came from. I'm on two other forums. One deals with Solidworks, the software I make my living with, and I use my real name on it (most people on there do). I'm Rafter S on a cattle related forum (my registered brand).
