Sometimes, you wonder why someone made their username this or that etc. Sometimes, the answer surprises everyone reading the reason. I'm interested in stuff like this, so what's you username origin. Feel free to comment on other people's reasons, just make it clear by going @[insert username here]. It's also okay to talk about previous usernames.
I first started out as leonchoi. It's pretty much my name, but slightly altered. Later, I changed to Pikachu2. I always loved pikachu, but "pikachu" is too bland, so I went with "pikachu2." THEN I changed it to accpikachu2, since even "pikachu2" is a bit bland as well. Finally, I recently changed it to Retro Pikachu considering that I really love Retro games (such as 8-bit or 16-bit), and putting in pikachu in there just sounded nice. So to sum up, I went from Leonchoi, to Pikachu2, to Accpikachu2, and finally, Retro Pikachu.
What's your username Origin? Posted by Retro Pookerchu on February 15th, 2014 at 10:58pm Viewed 1292 Times
Mine was originally Shadownico, coming from my name and Shadow the Hedgehog, and one time years ago making my Youtube account, I accidentaly wrote it with two n's, thus giving my actual username that I use in almost everywhere, Shadownnico.
My username originates from an obscure fan-novelization of Mega Man 3. In it, the Robot Masters are actually mass-produced, with a single robot serving as the boss fought in-game. Top Man is part of the "Spinstrike" series, hence my name.
My username came about when I started playing Mega Man 8-Bis]it Deathmatch. I was young at the time, around 11, and so I was a complete idiot. I called myself DamselInDistress (An inside joke I have; I am neither a damsel nor am I in distress). Well, the second server I joined was a "no kill" server. I was kicked almost immediately. Now, being the 11-year old idiot I was, I thought that was how online mode worked, no killing. Yes. Despite the word "Deathmatch" in the name. So, I supported the "no kill" rule in the next server. Then a thread came about (About the No Kill servers, had my name in a screenshot, was gonna link but I can't find it). I stopped playing for a while; I thought I was the worst person on earth for getting in "trouble" (it wasn't trouble at all) in my first community (I hadn't even joined the forums though). So, I changed my name to one involving my favorite Robot Master (QuickLIkeQuickman) and started playing after a while.
My full first name is, predictably, Michael, and the 76500 comes from both me being a lover of numbers and math, and from 7, 6 and 5 being my favorite numbers, in that order.
So, why the 0's? I tried to create my first email address about 12 years ago using the name Michael765, but, that was taken. Me being the stubborn kid I was back then, instead of trying Michael766, like the site tried to suggest, I instead tried Michael7650, but, that was taken, too. Then I tried Michael76500; Also taken.
So, I decided, since people called me Mikey a lot back then, to use Mikey as my name instead of Michael. I presumed that Mikey765 and Mikey7650 were taken, so, I just skipped straight to Mikey76500.

Yep, i use coolbie or cooldude on lots of sites. even though i myself does not think Myself is cool. (lol, Cookie Monster logic but eh, confusing huh?) So, why am i MegaBossGamer now? Well, it was to celebrate MegaBossMAN'S birthday, and i just think im fine with this name anyway. my real name has five letters, you have to guess it. only on My birthday you can call me it. got it?
Anyway, Current Name= Game i found out From Nakateleeli. I like his videos, and i was looking at his channel finding something other than bonk stuff to watch, and his Cold Shadow walkthrough looked fun. so i went in and after watching it i looked up more.... and yeah.
