How did you choose your Steam name?

Post  Brag on Wed Jan 08, 2014 10:38 pm

Is it TF2 related? Spy related? Related to anything?

I'm gonna start: My name's BRAG_!, Brag because my real name is Brage, and iv'e build a guitar and an amplifier named BRAG, and since then, i've just been sticking to it. Kind of ironic actually, because i'm normally really quiet  Laughing . the underscore is because i'm a huge fan of STAR_, and the exclamation mark because why not Laughing ?

Just a random discussion to get started Smile

Woah, this is my topic.
I don't remember what my name was prior to these events was, but here goes.
So one day, I was in math class, and I learnt about a number that was imaginary.
So I thought, hey, that's cool, it's a number that exists and doesn't exist at the same time!
So I changed my steam name to sqrtofneg1, and then shortened it to Sqrt(-1).
Later, when I found the square root symbol, I changed it to √-1.
Nowadays, I go by as √-1, Imaginary, or Sqrt(-1), but mostly √-1.

Rush at opponents where most lower level players have a hard time dodging and easy to spam. Sometimes very unexpected. Just like spying (in a way).

Way back in the day when he first discovered the internets, Carl came across a chess game. He thought he'd give it a go cuz he was into chess at the time. It asked him for a username. His 8 year old mind came up with Carlotso. It's stuck since.

As for the 25, I think I played a game or something where it required a username with a number in it for some odd reason, so I went with 25 because I like it. I dunno.

So yeah. Crap.

I thought I heard the word "otso" before for some reason, and defined both parts of your name just because...i'm a stalker. Well, according to Google and Wikipedia, Carl means "A peasant man of low birth," while Otso means "bear" in some Finnish language. Razz I have no idea on how to make something up with this, but it's kinda cool i guess.

... I backed out of the page the first time I wrote this

So, how long have you got?

I started off on Club Penguin under the name DjStarstruk, which I thought was cool when I was 8.

That stuck through to the PS3, until I botched up the signups and had to create a new one, so my 10 year old mind chose ThaRellik, after a wrestler from the time.

That stuck through to the PC, where I promptly embarrassed myself under that name, and my friend too in the process, so I changed it to Reggie... No prizes for guessing where I got that from.

That got boring, so that changed to the 'cool' and 'edgy' Trîp, because I'm a clumsy mofo, and tripping up was a common occurrence.

...Yeah, got bored of that too. Changed it to Reggie DR, after my initials, and that lasted a month. I then changed it to F.L.A.S.H, after a late night game of DEFCON, when we all changed our names to something in that style.

Finally, I hope, I've changed my name to Reggeh, as 90% of continental Europeans seem to pronounce my name as Reh-gee, rather than Reh-jee, so Reggeh was closest to how most people pronounced it and just looks nicer IMO. A minor alias at best.








Oh, and I go by Kofi Annan when playing DEFCON now. Because who doesn't want to be the ex-leader of the UN?

I came up with this name for a YouTube channel for Magic, and my name is Matthew. I stick with it because it's unique (probably because it's pretty stupid), and because usually fumble with it over the mic.
I considered changing it to Mattgic, but I'm already TheMattgician everywhere, and I don't care that much.

Isil = moon (Tolkian's language, Quenya I think ). Just because I was looking for a nickname in fantasy stuff (RPG, Final Fantsay, Book etc)

Soooo Isil Isil would be... Moon moon? huehue

Anyway, to shorten my story up a bit, I made up Almaironn as a name for a dragon in Dragon Cave, liked it so I started using it, then people were shortening it to Almie, so I thought, might as well change it. There.

When i saw your "Elegance" spy frag movie, i read it as Alime, since your entire outfit were painted lime. Also, thanks for making the video that really got me into spy  Very Happy

I was really bored and messed around with a username generator one day. It made Segno. Sounded familiar to me since I study Spanish more than any other class in school, such a fun language, and it is a Latin word for Sign. I like the sound of it and it's smooth on the tongue, even though 80% of people mispronounce it.
