How'd you come up with yours? Any special meaning or anything?

Mine's simple. ROB W R

ROB for my name. Robert. And W R for my middle and last initial.

Hales233
03-01-2001, 05:02 PM
"Hales" is my nickname, Michael Jordan is my favorite player, so that's where i got the 23, and the 3 was added because when i signed up for instant messenger, Hales23 was already taken.

Big Boy Laroux
03-01-2001, 05:53 PM
good idea for this thread, rob. this is what i wrote over at fanhome. Still holds true.

Big Boy Laroux was my nickname on my college basketball team. a bunch of us were bored (and restless) in the locker room before a game, and we were just coming up with stupid names for team mates. Like we had this big tall (& kinda ugly) guy and we called him "Gulliver the overgrown Gnome." His name wasn't gulliver, but he did look like an overgrown gnome. anyway, my turn came around, and someone said "Big Boy Laroo." (pronounced like it's spelled) He said to spell it that way. But then, since i'm from Louisiana, they officially change the spelling to how i currently use it. My nickname was the only one that stuck through the season and my career there. i actually grew to like it. most of the time, it was just shortened to Laroux. Like this... "Laaaaarrrrooouuuuxxxxxx... FOR THREE!" catchy, huh? (it's still pronounced "laroo")

Back in the days of local dial-up bbs' (oh the memories!) my username was almost always backlash. I went through a couple different nicks before I settled on backlash. I got it from a comic book character or something - don't remember exactly. When I started mixing and composing tracks, I became dj backlash. So now I always use djbacklash (lower-case, no spaces) or djb on msg boards and stuff.

Evilmav2
03-26-2001, 02:21 PM
A long time ago I used to use the moniker "EvilMan" on a couple of different BBS boards where I used to get pirated games... When I started posting a lot of sports stuff, it just made sense to adopt the "Mav" part instead of "man" because of my longtime affinity for the terrible Mavs... Sportstalk banned my first name "Evilmav1" so I just adopted "Evilmav2" and haven't looked back since...

i know..i followed the atlanta braves through the sh*t years, from 82 until dale was traded
i was 4 years old when i started following him. i watched every game on tbs
i guarantee you that by the time i was 5, i knew more about baseball than 95%+ of the people that followed baseball
he was my summer....following the great dale murphy.
i miss watching him play, watching him hustle

Given name is Andrew, but when I step on the court, everyone says the way I shoot the ball and run off of screens and my arrogance reminds them of someone, my favorite NBA player (Finley is my boy on the mavs, but...) Reggie Miller. My fraternity is Theta Chi. I go by Reggie more than anything, so, ReggieThetaChi.

Kinda stupid, back in highschool I needed to come up with a new nickname quick to replace my old AIM.

orange = happy, days = days

So essentially I'm stuck with a happy-go-lucky, teeny-bopper, punch-me-in-the-face, knee-me-in-the-groin name. Ever since I grew up, I've abandoned it for everything but this board.

You see, Bernardo is my name. I was very naive about the internet in general so when I tried to make an AIM login, surprisingly, Bernardo was gone. A page popped up saying "sorry! the screenname you chose is already taken, here are some suggestions:
bernardostheking
bernardothehandsome
bernardothestud
bernardos70

Since I'm a very modest person, I chose the name which you see to my left. You can reach me through that screenname on aim, gmail, hotmail, yahoo, here, everywhere.
