How did you got your name? (Minecraft or Other)

Recommended Posts

Foximity    0

Every name has its origin, maybe it's just something stupid, or it has a big meaning behind it. In this post, I'd like everyone to share why you made your name and what the reasoning/ origin behind it was. I know a couple of people have based their names, Gamertags, In game Names, whatever you prefer to call it off of bands, family, something funny, or you misspelled something and need $10 to change it but you don't because you're cheap. Here's an example of how I got mine

My name is Foximity. I like EDM a lot and there is a youtube channel called Proximity, where they upload a bunch of EDM songs and remixes. I came up with my name while watching an anime called Sword Art Online. A character named Sinon chose the race "Cait Sith" which is basically like choosing your character type in Destiny  (Example: Hunter, Titan, Warlock). Heres a picture of that character:tumblr_nqhgywva5Y1svs6tto1_500.gif

As you can see, her ears remind me of a Fox, which is also my favorite animal. And obviously, I took the word Proximity and added the word fox to get my name Foximity.

 

So there it is, how I came up with my name. I'd like to hear how all of you came up with your names. Please comment and let me know how you came up with your names!

NextelChirp is a multilayer name. Firstly, the NextelChirp was something I fondly remember as a kid. Secondly, my favorite artist, Childish Gambino covered a song called NextelChirp and it sounds dope. Also, Lil' Maceo made a banger beat for that song, it's constantly in my head. I also used to switch my name to different Childish Gambino songs, before NextelChirp, I was YaphetKotto.

Geokal is the name I usually use for most games and I too be honest I cant remember why. After a while I wanted to upgrade to a premium account but 'geokal' was already taken so I used LordGeokal.

Ayyyyyy. That's a dope story man. I like to think these names as something just thought up on the spot and you stuck with it, or it has a deep meaning like yours. I like the name man :) keep it up.

PseudoStorm    0

My name came from Wizard101, where I was a storm class. The storm part stuck with me throughout and all of my names have included "storm" somewhere in there. PseudoStorm however was a name I did not choose myself but my cousin.

So, I was playing with "OmNomNyaN" nickname and talking to some little guy (maybe 8 years old) and he couldn't pronounce my nickname right, So instead of "OmNomNyaN" he just shouted "ANIMACHEN". I thought that's good nickname, corrected it a little and kept it.

DauntlessFive513

I got really into divergent for a while, thus Dauntless which obviously was the coolest faction to a 13 year old boy. Five because with divergent and dauntless, me and a few friends decided to figure out our number of fears, I ended up with 5. My best friend at the time had 13, thus 513. I liked the spelled out Five better but Thirteen is too long. So DauntlessFive513.

Puddles    1

My original IGN is 'puddles06' I came up with this by looking outside and counted the amount of puddles were outside at that moment, I don't know why I thought of puddles though.

rolo_    6

A lot of people assume I'm Mexican based off of my name, but realistically it came about because I was 12 years old at the time and was eating Rolos. However, my original name was a lot cringier: 'R0L02734'

My OG name was "captaincr33per" (i was like 8 or 9 don't judge) but once name changing came out I changed it to CaptainCr33per and just recently (3-4 months) I was watching a Sips stream and he mentioned it (one of the donator's name) and I liked it so I stole it.
