    I don't judge people by their name at all, I do however love seeing people who fulfill the stereotype by having a name like Xx420K1llahxX and acting like an asshat.
    Do people judge me by my name? I'm intrigued now.

    Probably, but I really could only say that you are probably a competitive person, a completionist and at times possibly an elitist but not to the extent that people call you out on it.

    Am I close?

    Also, do you wear alot of khakis and have a strong attraction to nice pens?

    I fell in love with Anne Rice and marijuana, both, somewhere around junior high... I think it was 1992.

    L = Lestat (<3)

    CDXX is the roman numerical representation of "420". Something I don't typically like to flaunt, but then again I am a very big fan of pot. Though very seldom do I get to enjoy it these days.

    Kinda generic, but still unique... It represents me without necessarily being another OLOL "potsmoker420" on Xbox Live.

    Unfortunately, I have more than one "X" in my name so I am to be forever shunned by my PA brethren. :(

    Credit for being subtle with your weed loving ways. (Don't worry, Im Canadian so I'm not judging)

    I wouldn't worry too much about the multiple X's. As many people have posted on here, its not exactly uncommon. And while I do believe multiple X's to be a warning sign of stupidity, its not the only sign (there's lots!)

    Which brings us to:
    Do people judge me by my name? I'm intrigued now.

    Too be honest, when I first saw your name I thought you were a youngin. Like 12. It didnt last long tho as your post (I cant remember what it even was about) did come off as being intelligent and not written with your dick hanging out of your pants. So while I did judge the book by its cover, the pages quickly gave me a paper cut for being judgmental.

    In fairness, when I made the gamertag, I can't have been too much older than 12. When did Rainbow Six: Black Arrow come out?
    I've been considering changing my gamertag for the same reason: It's getting too old now. Hell, I'm getting too old for it now.

    I'm glad it was enough to create a thread about though. It's achieved something before it's timely demise

    I used to be yoshi2188 after my birthday, but that was kinda lame, so I was thinking about names and came up with Alagor.

    I kinda tired of it after a while and changed it to Tortalius, which I just kinda came up with randomly. Recently I wanted to try another name, and Tcheldor came to me sorta taking the Tc from the Hexer in Etrian Odyssey 1.

    Conveniently I"ve only had to use numbers once since then, and that was because I think I was the original Alagor in something and forgot the password, so if you've seen those names somewhere online it's probably me.

    It was originally Forever Zero, a really awesome skill that Lynx has in the really awesome game Chrono Cross.

    But on the forums there's like a million people with Zero in their name, and lot's of people would be like, "blah blah blah zero," and it was annoying not knowing who they were talking to.

    So I changed it to Forever Zefiro, because zefiro is basically Italian for zero. And Italy is a pretty cool place.

    Oh, my Xbox live gamertag is WorldClassHack.

    Yeah, I'm kind of groaning inwardly at that. At the time I was planing on registering a website and I thought that was clever, since I'm a journalist (commonly called 'hacks' over here in Blighty) and I'm obviously a world-class one... I liked the dichotomy between being a hack - a negative term - and announcing to everyone that I am great.

    Anyway, I eventually realised that was actually really dumb, and dropped it. But not before I'd linked my MSN account to WorldClassHack as my gamertag. Bah.

    I picked my name because I love the idea of el Pollo Diablo from The Curse of Monkey Island, which is one of my very favorite games. It's not usually taken, either. I'll append a C to it when it's taken, but there's no significance to the letter.

    I usually use TumTum in PC shooters. Named after that fat ninja from "3 Ninjas," a movie I liked as a kid. It's never taken, and I kind of like it.

    Reznick, I remember seeing your "dbz_fan" barbarian. It's weird the things that people remember.

    My pet peeve is capitalization. I'm never sure what's case sensitive or not, so it drives me crazy to have to pay attention to random capital letters.

    Mine's just a shortened version of the name I used all the time for Quake 2.

    It was either this ("Seeker"... because, uh, I seek people) or "Inforcer". Which was just me being a dumbass at the time and not knowing how to spell, but now that I look at it, it seems inappropriate in a sorta funny way.

    My handle is very simple. Dusda is an anagram of my full name. Dustin Dahl becomes Dusda. I came up with it during the SWG beta, using some random name generator. It is a simple formula, using the first three of your first name and the first two of your last. I managed to get my domain name with the same name as well, which is pretty awesome since five character domains are a pain in the ass to get.

    Well my name originally came from Zero from megaman as I was a big fan when I was younger. I kept the name for awhile and then spent a couple years on a sonic message board for a site called Sonic Verse Team. My girlfriend at the time was a bit of a japanophile and would always refer to Sonic as Sonikku, and eventually started referring to me on the boards as zerokku. While we don't keep in touch at all or anything the name just sort of stuck.

    Mine comes from the fact that when I was like 10 my name was assassin, soon after I realized I needed to change my name because that one was lame. I was playing redfaction one day and the main dudes name was 'Alias' and I was like well thats cool, but ultimately too common. So I added RF to the front. It stuck.

    My alts are always RF or Kiriz (just made kiriz up, variants include Kyriz, Kiryz, etc...).

    Everyone calls me R F (the letters), or alias. Some even use the latter IRL. Not sure why.....

    Also, people that never see my name, or in WoW where I can't have capitals to do it right (RFAlias, in WoW its Rfalias) people say "ruffalias", which is annoying. Slurs include "Rough alias, roughanus" etc....
