captainsarathai Brought this up at the bottom of the first page of this (How Borak got his Lord title.)thread, and it got me to thinking; how did everyone come up with their screen names and avatars? Is there a pun that is being made in a name or with an avatar?
For me, Wheely is the phonetic pronunciation of my last name. Thus, Papa Wheely has become a nick name for a number of the males in my family. As for my avatar, I'm not sure where I stumbled across it, but it was shortly after I started playing Fantasy. I remember being hysterical because a friend of mine and myself had just talking about creating characters in game based on real celebrities, and we were joking that Chuck Norris would have only the one model in his army but have all kinds of crazy rules about roundhouse kicking through time and always doubling his attacks thanks to the Third Fist.
Anyways, I don't know if anyone else finds this stuff interesting, but I'm curious just how much of themselves people put into their Screen Names and such, especially considering that, if you know that it's there (which you all now do) there is a decent amount of myself in my own screen name.
I've used this screen name for a long time. The name Rothgar came from when I read Beowulf and decided to change the old king's name (Hrothgar) to something that sounded a bit more like my name (Roland). The 13 comes from my birthday.
As for the avatar, I'm primarily a Beastmen player, and I LOVED the art made for Warhammer Online, so there you go.
Theres not a story behind my username, this was my first time on a forum so I just thought of the first thing that came to my head the 2608 is my birthday date. As for my avatar, who doesn't like cookies?
One shall stand, and one shall fall.
Mine comes from debating, writing a very exhaustive dissertation, and growing up with a lawyer for a father.
I just love a good argument.

My real name is Viktor. Having it as my screen name makes me feel like Michelangelo or Raphael (not the ninja turtles).
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
mine is from online shooters like Counter Strike, battlefield 2142, Americas Army etc. I was always the machine gun dude who provided suppresive fire and sprayed and prayed, so my first nickname was aimless. but then it became clear that I actually could aim, but just sprayed a lot, and blew everything away, like a Leafblower. and there it is.
my avatar is from Googling some Dwarf artwork, saw this and loved it.
A long time ago my elementary school purchased its first computer. Our user names were the first 4 letters of our first names and the first 4 letters of our last names. I've used JustMust ever since.
Ages ago me and my mates starting calling each other Muntah's and over time different variations came out of it. Me being a massive transformers fan was given the title Muntimus Prime then one of my mates took that name as his Xbox gamertag, the only logical step once I bought an Xbox was to go as his enemy and Muntatron was born Since then I've used it for pretty much everything
Avatar is the cover art for a Transformers comic series "All hail Megatron"
had this nick for .. many many years now.
it all started shortly after counterstrike was released, and i always forgot to choose a nick when i played on my local internet café.
We had an all-nighter a weekend, and I had something bad to eat so I ended up spending most of the time on the toilet, making my friends kinda annoyed, and since I kept "vanishing" well ya..
didn't help getting rid of the nick, as a few years later this bloody laundry powder named vanish appeared to my friends amusement!

Now now lads. This is a forum about grown men playing with toy soldiers. Lets be adults please.
My name was originally taken from the light bulb company NOMA, which I sold a ton of when I worked at Canadian Tire(yes I am from Canada). Then it became my starcraft 2 screen name, because when you don't think about it describing a
light bulb company, it sounds kind of cool. Then a few months ago my friend who is going to school to become a physics professor, told me it's an abbreviation for Non-Overlapping Magisteria, which means the conflicts between science and religion.
