Username origins

Hi everyone, I don't know if this is a repost or not. I want to know the origins of your username and what story that comes with it.

Mine is zeonfighter. The origin of it is my first email account when I was 13 years old and the internet service provider required all of the users to have an email account through them. At that time I was watching the show Gundam Wing and the quote/unquote bad guys called the organization of oz then they became Zeon which i thought were a better, more organized bad guy (if memory serves). So me being 13 i picked the name zeonfighter because i liked the gundam pilots cause and their back stories. Well just by telling this story makes me feel old lol...

    I always assumed it was a play on your actual name.

    It is. The character is based on myself, just as many of the other characters in the book are based on some of my friends.

    Mine is just something I made up for my email account a while back. It was originally Firecracker19, but that was already taken, so I added an extra 9

    An extra 1* :)

    chaosmaster for youtube when it wasn't so popular, nothing special; random.

    EVERYTHING else: Sir Saucington von Awesomeshire.

    Now the story behind this one was when I was thinking of a catchy username for overall web use....ment?
    I remember hearing someone say Awesome sauce somewhere, I began using that. I thought it was unoriginal and boring, so I thought. Well being the gentleman I am, I should spice it up, with a sprinkle of German. I'm German.

    Sir Saucington von Awesomeshire
    Sir Awesomington(????) von Sauceshire sounded boring as well, the first one was more catchy.

    Now that was not enough, and now that I think about it I haven't updated my avatar for this site. I made a custom avatar with a bottle of Awesome Sauce (Sporting a mustache and pipe, he sits in a bowl of ice held by a butler with his own but slightly less equal to my bottles mustache. He sits next to many more bottles of wine in their undergarments.)

    It should be updated
    Edit: Here she blows---

    Math - is absolutely nothing to do with mathematics, if it were I would have called myself Maths.

    It is simply a shortened version of my name: Mathew.

    The name I used to use for internet game highscores.

    Now also a minor character in ASOIAF: ADWD, which I found most amusing.

    My nickname at home is Pandaberries--don't ask why, no one knows--and the "keen" is a part of my last name.

    Upon transition from partial empiricist to full empiricist, and learning about the laws of logic, the battle between logic "logos" and myth "mythos," I landed very firmly on the "logos" part of the spectrum. And since I originally joined here to have heated internet arguments, I advertised my view on that point: "Logos." As for the numbers, my lucky number is 364 (don't ask) and my best friend's is 21, and a long time ago we realized that they added up to 385. Hence the 385.

    casper667 - the casper part comes from my highschool nickname that stuck and the 667 is because i copied the 667 on the end of my bro's xbox gamertag when I made my first gamertag since just plain old "casper" is quite hard to get on just about anything.

    My current username isn't one I commonly use and I only used it here because, at the time, I was playing Halo and I joined a server as New001. That name was already in use by the server, so it gave me a random name, which happened to be Disco.

    Figured, what the hell, might as well keep it.

    My ACTUAL internet name is krad0n. At least, that's what it has evolved into. I was sitting in a programming class back in... I think 7th grade maybe? Too long ago, I don't remember exactly. But I was sitting at my computer just letting my mind wander and I decided that I wanted to think of a name I would use as a profile name for whatever games I decided to play. Kradon was the first one to pop into my head. I thought it was cool, so I decided to use it. I didn't have my own internet connection at my house at the time, so I didn't actually use it on any forums until about 4 years ago. The first place I registered with that name was here. I was feeling, evil?, at the time, so I decided to add the 666, which now I feel is completely retarded. It eventually evolved into krad0n which is what I use on things like xfire and reddit.
