    Imodium was an early Nirvana song demo, it was renamed to Breed.

    It's also a medication to help stop (verbal) diarrhea. :)

    I added an aditional m for no reason.

    Same reply as the last 5 times.  Grunty was supposed to just be my login name.  Gus_Tarball was to be my forum name.  They are both from an all-time favorite game series of mine called Jagged Alliance.  

    My LOTRO main is a female hobbit named Grizelda Tarfoot.  Her title is 'the Easily Lost'.  Don't put me in charge of leading the way.  Real world I'm fine,  in a game I can't tell North from South.

    I believe my original account on this website was created back in my SWG days under another name. But I forgot the password and no longer have the e-mail account. So that one is toast.

    This account was created back when I was playing World of Warcraft, so I used the name Amathe, which was my main character in WoW at the time (a female character). 

    There is no story behind Amathe. It was just a name that sounded cool to me at the time.

    I was big into mysterious people like Rasputin and Faust, so I wanted a username that sounded like an old wizard. Came up with Zorvan. That was around 2000/2001, I guess. I used Luminous or Luminarius in the 90's ( big into Illuminati stuff back then lol ). Ingame, I'm usually Zorvan if a male character, Sharlamayne if a female one.

    My name comes from the time I was going to try my first mmorpg, Lineage 2. I wasn't going to really play for long but my girlfriend was traveling so I thought it was the perfect time.

    I needed a name on the spot and just took some of the letters from my last name and fashioned this.

    Interesting enough, a guy in my Lineage 2 clan left the game to go to World of Warcraft and told me he was going to use my name.

    Kind of felt weird as I made it up based on my name but what could one do right? I then find out there are all sorts of Sovraths in World of Warcraft!

    Sort of feel like a trendsetter. B)

    Mine comes from when I was 8 years old and going online on the original starcraft. I couldn't figure out a username, I was at my grandmas house and I saw a panther ceramic figure, and I typed 4 random numbers. It's just kinda been my username ever since. 

    Most pathetic in game name? Probably when we had a Mcdonalds themed guild in Warhammer and all of us had mcdonalds product names. I think I was Shamrock Shake. Oh boy highschool was a time.

    Forgrimm was the first character I made in EQ back in '99. It was a variation on Thorgrim, a character in the 1982 Conan movie.

    I was forced into mine. At the time of BBSs (dial-up bulletin board systems) in the very early 90s, when most sites were limited to 10 character names, I tried using the handle BlkPanther, as the large cat was always a personal favorite. They are absolutely beautiful creatures; powerful, muscular, graceful. I knew about the name's history in politics but it had been 20+ years since they were in the mainstream news and were pretty much defunct at the time. But once people found out I was white, the shit hit the fan and the hate mail started pouring in. I took it for a while, tried to argue my point about the animal, but it didn't matter. It was easier just to rename myself to Canadian Panther, CanPanther for short.

    I took my name from an evil wizard in the 80s version of Bards Tale 1. Unfortunately I didn't Google it first so it really should have been Kylearan I believe.

    Lame names? Many I'm sure, like my Infiltrator in DAOC, Zero, or maybe ripping off a band name a few times, using Tragically Hip in Vanguard and Tenacious D for a healer once in WOW I think. (I really liked that last one)

    These days I'm on a "religious" theme creating characters with the names Trinity and Covenant.

    Mine is from the DAOC auto-generator. Most people think its a play on letters from LOTRO or WOW but its not. I also pronounce it E-LEE-D-INN.

    Lamest name is my Argonian in ESO. I absolutely love the Life is Strange games and to "honor" them I named my Argonian Bae Over Bay. Don't ask. :)

    I'll be honest. I stole the name from my GM in EQ. I was a Crimson Tide Fan and had never seen Crimson spelled that way. Used it for the past 21 years.

    Usually it pertains to the username without the numbers being taken and not wanting to make a new username.

    I will often end up with Ungood1984, because Ungood was taken, as I am obviously not the Trend Setter I think I am, I have also ended up with names like "DoublePlusUngood1984" because it seems there are a lot of people that like this handle.

    I just pick what I like.  If it's already taken or add numbers or just pick a new name.  Worst names ever picked were for alphas and betas only lasting til wipe.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but mine's a family name...

    But seriously, I came up with a name that I thought would be kind of gross for my Uruk Black Arrow in LOTRO PvMP, so Gutlard.

    Which also happens to be a pathetic name that I still love to use obviously, along with: Thunderfart, Thundershart, Cropduster, Guttplug (G replaces B for the slower readers), Windbreaker, Buttburps, Beorgut (Beorning name in LOTRO, play on Beer gut), I try to work Gut into most of my names, which my friends are tired of, but I like it so screw them.

    Oh, and I guess the numbers in my name are silent...

    Gut Out!

    My avatar name is from one of the first characters I played extensively -  in the original Guild Wars.  I took pieces from my real life first, middle, and last name.  It was originally in two parts - El Aland.  My avatar pic is from that GW1 character (an elementalist).

    I try to use something unique to every game character, and I NEVER use a number because I like the challenge of coming up with something no one else has.
