Andrei: my name

1996: my birth year

I never use andrei96 instead of 96andrei, but if my username must start with a letter(Yahoo! for example), I simply add an 'a' because that's the first letter of the alphabet(a96andrei). It worked every time.

Mine is just a play on my real name, with the year of my birth at the end, nothing too fancy.

I honestly have no idea where the 51 in my name came from. Use it a lot but i think it was just a random number..... been using it for ages. People must think im 63 yrs old (pretty much a third of that tbh). Rest is just my name :)

My name came originally from a dutch word that i thought i heard in a song ("Armored saints and warlocks watched the slaughter" : sabaton - metal crue).

The bold part is where it got funny, i hear "oorlogsworsjes" (pronounced as : Ore - log(soft "g") - wore - stjus) slaughtered, and when translated directly to English we get "war" (oorlog) Weenies (worstjes) and i made it singular so it ended up being "WarWeeny"

 

To the day i have this nickname, i am the only person on this planet to have this nickname and i am proud of it :P


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

That's pretty awesome and a LOT deeper than imagined the story of your nickname's origins. Pretty cool
