Whats the story behind your username?

why did you pick your username? is it a real life nickname or a tribute to something? Maybe your original nickname was taken and you used the first thing you could think of. What ever the story, feel free to. share it.

There is no particular story behind mine. I was watching the film labyrinth and i've always liked the character Hoggle. thats it lol

  • The "Prof" in my name is short for Professor. I'm not really a professor (only have a bachelor's lol). I got that nickname when I was in uni because of my detailed explanation of video game strategy.

    "Don" isn't my first name, "Don" is the first syllable of my last name.

    Back in 2006 shortly after I got this nickname, I wanted to rename my Playstation online account Professor_D, but it was too many characters.

    So I had to shorten it to either "Prof_D" or "Prof_Don" , and I decided to go with Prof_Don.

    Now most of my internet profiles are either Prof_Don, or a spin-off of this name that I had to make back in 2010 when some law professor at UMass used Prof_Don as his name on Google lol

  • I am a lover of love.
    Phil- (prefix/suffix in Greek, from the root word 'Philia') = love

    I changed my username a couple times and realized too late that I couldn't change it any longer, so I ultimately got stuck with this one. I like this username, but it looks too similar to "paedophile" (to people who don't read carefully) which is not cool at all.

  • When I was young (around 12ish) I was obsessed with skittles.
    & Everyone back then spelled my name "Sammy" because of another girl in my class with the same name.

    The username has stuck with me since then. :*

  • I am OlderAndWiser because, now that I am older (obviously) than I was many years ago, I am also wiser than I was back then. It does NOT mean that I think that I am wiser than anyone else (or older than anyone else). It simply means that I have an appreciation for how the experience that you gather over the years makes you a wiser person.

    • And that, in itself, is a wide statement, lol <3

    • Show All
    • The "Wiser" part is true in many ways, in my opinion.

    • @rose004b I thank you for the kind words.

  • I picked mine with the intention that I would be staying here for a long time. Thus I couldn't use something generic like batman6001 or dovahkiin5 because usernames related to something you care about are risky - chances are you will eventually grow tired of it.
    ThisDudeHere was my attempt to both signify that I as a person am present, and yet it also does not reveal anything about me at all. There is nothing personal in it, and yet it itself is personal.

  • It was me trying to think of a username on the fly that could describe me without giving away too much or too little.

    Arguably talented (although I'm not one to brag, I will not deny I have my fair share of talents like everyone else)

    Arguably a phantom because I sometimes fly into peoples' lives just to put a smile on their face or make them feel more confident and then disappear just like that (no idea why, I guess i just recognize when people needs some help).

    I have many names, and this is one of them.

  • 'Philosopher_Edge' actually was a kind of name for a free form sword class my buddy and I were working on. We called it The Philosopher's Edge, as we used swordwork as a gateway to introduce students to philosophy. I even made a mini-doc about it. You can youtube it with that title as the name.
