Just out of curiosity, how did you choose what your username should be on OCC and other forums?

My own username: Ecofriendly comes from Egofriendly. It's not really that old and I've only been using it for about a year or so. I like the word ego for some reason. Not that I'm egocentric or anything, but the word just have a nice sound and it easy to pronounce. Then for some reason I paired it with friendly. But I found Egofriendly to have already been taking on some forums and in some games, so I chose Ecofriendly, since it sounds almost similar and many of my friends consider me being very Ecological, even though I'm not. But that's sort of the story.

When my wife was pregnant, she said it just looked like she had been eating alot of cheeseburgers, so I started calling the baby (as yet unnamed) baby cheesebuger. Changed it to my handle with my name replacing the cheese when the baby was actually born and my wife said I could no longer call my new daughter cheesebuger because it would give her a complex! Just thought the name too good to evaporate! :P

It's been too long since a thread like this was made.

No special story to my name, I just wanted something original and something that I thought stood out, and this is what I came up with.
