I have my mothers last name. My fathers last name is pretty bland...I'm glad my name is not "Sune Pedersen".

When I was in primary school I wanted to be like everybody else; at 30 I take pride in being different. :-)

Kombat Santa comes from Peter Wahlbäcks "Tv für alles". Brilliant man, brilliant name. I also used "Disko Duck" for a while...

My Nick is a dutch word, the exact translation is unknown to me. Doppie is basically the alias of my car which is a volkswagen beetle. So I choose Doppie or Doppy1200 (1200 is the original volkswagen model name and not amiga related) for use on forums. You can also find me using 'ernoman'. That name was made up a long time ago by my friends. Erno my first name and turned into some superhero like thing......the Ernoman.....I don't use that anymore.

Fun thread but does anyone really care?

My name comes from Michael Moorcock's SF series of books. Usually I am Jerry Cornelius (aka the English Assassin) when playing on TFC, BF1942 and Call of Duty. But for this board I took Jerry's alter ego Jherek Carnelian (the n wont fit i here)...

Eek

Got mine from RPG's...
White Wolf's Mage: The Ascension has a hacker-mage class called Virtual Adept, which I used as an alias for a while. I needed something shorter & one word, so with some influence from Warhammer, it changed to Adeptus...

Just realised... I've been using this name for about 10 years now
(and use it for most computer games as well)

My nick was chosen as a quick step to register and ask a couple of questions, never thought I would stay... That was 3 years ago

Anyways as most of you know its a name that pops up in Magnetic Fields driving games in the highscore tables. I just found it funny because Bootson is very similar to greek slang for penis... so Hairy Penis was funny at the time. (like I said never thought I would stay)

btw... I'm not the biggest fan of Internet forums... The eab is pretty much the only one I have stuck with over time.

When I begun accessing internet, forums and the like, I begun using the nick Luke Skywalker, because I am a fan of the movies (Not a BIG fan, but I enjoy them), and because at that time I had a friend who begun calling me "Luke Skywalker" after he saw me playing Raiden.

But after about 2 months I wanted to change for something more original, but I didn't know what to use. I was discovering emulation and had got dozens of NES roms, and one of those games was "Shatterhand". I loved that name, and being somewhat an obscure game, I just begun to use this name. I've been using it since 1998.

I discovered then that there's a character in a book called "Old Shatterhand" (Which seems to be rather popular) and there's a place somewhere in the world called "Shatterhand Vile" ...

Cool

Nice thread! I was a huge fan of a lot of the early adapted cartoons growing up such as Star Blazers, Battle of the Planets, Robotech etc. EAB Being the first forum I was joining I was stuck for an idea for an alias, so I just went to one of my old faves for inspiration & voila.
This site provides a good explanation for BOTP newbies & its anime parent it was adapted from originally (to make it suitable for western kiddie audiences)
Gotta dig those flares!

Best Gatchaman site is http://www.vacuform.com/Gatchaman/.

It's stunning how bastardized it was to become Battle of the Planets. It might as well be a different program altogether.

Anyway FromWithin comes from my band moniker From Within, whose name comes from my song From Within.

Its not that i smoke that much, it really came from another reason. I was looking for a nickname that isnt already in use and that would maybe remembered. I was inspired somehow by the nickname of a mate which is "Duffbeer".

Today i think it was not a good idea to choose this nickname, as i hear things like "marlboroman is already dead" or "hey cancerboy" again and again. But as you may know its not that easy to change a nickname you have for 4 years
