Why did you pick that username?

Postby Gamma » Wed Jun 26, 2013 10:52 pm

So, I have seen some interesting usernames here in these forums and wondering, why did you choose the username you currently have? I chose mine because I chose this name for some online game I played, and when I picked that name playing that online game, I was learning about gamma radiation and all that fun stuff in chemistry.

Umm.... the reason why I picked my name was because a couple of nights before I joined the fourms, I was watching one of those Christmas movies and the kids were playing with a Snowman- and then I thought it would it be a good name to use. Someone stole my name on the myfico forums....so I adjusted it. That, and my name starts with an S, so it would be easier to remember when I log in.

Picked mine in my young teenage years after one of my favorite bands and because my birthday is on April 29th.

When I first saw this board it seemed like a big Amex board so I just used my member since date. This is not the name I normally use, but I picked it just for here. (It's also the same on the Amex Community Board).

When I was a club/rave DJ, I went by DJ Rez. That came from William Gibson's book, Idoru. When I signed up for Gmail, 3 other people beat me to it. I've been the fourth djrez ever since.
