    How did you come up with your User/Nickname?

    Hey guys!

    A few days ago, I tried signing up for Google's newest augmented reality game, but since I noticed some time ago, that I don't really like the look and sound of my current nickname, I was started hesitating to come up with a new username. Which didn't really work, because I didn't want to just enter "asdasdasdasd" and let that be it, but find a good looking and sounding new one!


    I then started thinking about how I came up with the last usernames I used, which I then found out was kinda lame

    My first Username was .Stalker., which I came up with in anticipation of the then upcoming Stalker - Shadows of Chernobil game (how creative my 13 year old me was), which turned out not to be not as great as I exceptced, so over the time I changed my name to the current, Tawnos, who is Urzas right hand in the book "The Brothers War" by Jeff Grubb (which is an excellent read btw ) from the MGT series.


    Now it turns out that looking for a Nickname is like looking for someone to marry, it's fucking difficult. >.<
    How did you guys come up with yours? Or what is it derived from?

    I was playing Morrowind when I was a kid. I liked the Spellsword class. 95 is the year of birth. Added it on DeviantART because some douche already took my name...

    TheWalkingGhost > The Ghost who Walks > The Phantom (vigilante super hero in a purple suit)

    Loved the comics.
    Wanting to change the name though, something that I can use more for a personal tag/pseudo.
    Ever just woken up and gone "shit, does the world around me exist"?

    Harbinger of Ill Repute... Well, I think the name pretty much speaks for itself.
    It's a constant reminder that I will always be alone in the end, always wandering, desperately trying to fill a vague emptiness.
    Came from an old friend.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to sulk in that corner over there... xD

    Widdershins is an old word means 'anti-clockwise' or 'to take a course opposite the apparent motion of the sun'. But to be honest, I chose it mostly because it sounded cool.
