    Mine's from DotA back when I still played Warcraft, though I'm not 100% sure why I picked exactly this hero name.

    I was originally called RP4life, and I met IamtheWalrus. on USWest, where we started a clan, where everyone had to be Iamthe____

    So I turned out to be IamtheRPer (it's not Reaper, it's roleplayer)

    Well, I own a battalion of micro rc tanks which fire blanks, I'm a little obsessed with warfare at times, so my name came naturally.

    Silly because I am silly.

    Ant because it is short for my real name :D

    TheWarchief because Thrall is my favourite warcraft character and then i thought "Thrall" would be a little to literal so it became "TheWarchief"

    I've refered to myself as fladdermasken for ages and ages past. Not a word that makes sense, mostly just two swedish words not related in any way, combined.
    • Fladder translates flutter or levity. I was refering to flutter.
    • Mask translates worm, maggot or mesh. En in masken is simply a swedish conjugation that implies that the entity is presupposed. So basically, THE worm.
    Quite hard to translate, and it makes absolutely no sense in swedish either.

    When I was playing some online game (forgot if it is Ran or Ragnarok) when I saw that my username has changed to supertoinkz ( I usually use "Remember username/passwords" stuff; my account was Gwafu). So I thought my biggah brotha change my name and I leveled it up. He then caught me when I was playing with 'supertoinkz' account. I learned that it's his alt account.

    And I thought supertoinkz is a weird/cool name.
