Back when I played alot of WoW, I used to look up cool names on that site. Found "Trudo" from there, if memory serves, it means "Warrior" or "Warrior man" or somesuch.

Yeah, not very original, I know. :P

Nice Gobi:D

btw 'no' in this case would be a possessive particle, so basically Gobi no Houkou would be 'Gobi's Houkou' (in some cases Houkou's Gobi). So in english something like 'Five-Tails of (the) Houkou' or 'Houkou of (the) Five-Tails'. ;)

Kiel is the name of a MVP in Ragnarok Online, which I've played until recently.. but for it to not be a total copypasta of the name I added in an "h", also because I think it makes it look cooler.

Marmot/Mormota

You call that "thing" Mormota in Hungarian. Now, onto why my name is Mormota. One day I was horribly sleepy in school, and it continued for a week, so my classmates started calling me Mormota, since that is also sleepy. ^^

I think I'm pretty much the only guy whose name means something and is this strongly connected to them. [But is not their name] ^^

Ohh, memories are coming back to me now. Nick stories are the best. :)

It was... about 6 years ago. I was out of town, staying at my brother's rental house who was going to collage at the moment. And my nick was Janissary back then. It's an Ottoman millitary unit, you can find more info about it here. I picked it because I'm a fan of them and the Turkish version of the word wasn't cool enough. One night, I realised that my nick isn't unique, apperantly there are a lotta people who also uses my nick. And it bothered me. So I decided to come up with a unique nickname! With this awesome motivation, I picked "Jan" from "Janissary" and put "say" to end of it. As in "Jan say, Jan is saying... etc.". And the crazy part is: even though I used a word pronounced like "may", I pronounce my nickname's both "a"s as in "car". That's probably because my English sucked back then.

So I came up with a "unique" nickname only to find out about 5 years later that Jansay is infact, a Chinese female name. An actual name! ;D But somehow I don't mind, so it's staying that way.


Though it's super brief, let me explain my Warband nick: Ezrak. It means "blue" in Arabic. And this nick has a funny part, too: blue isn't my favorite color. I just picked it because it sounds cool.

Miwiw has no background. Didnt found any about it at google (only my forum thread) but something named "Miwi", didnt ever hear that tho.

Uhm I took it because I did need another name for accounts, characters in any game. Before that I often used "Mupflu" as my steam acc was named, also my main WoW Character has that name (the only character with that name ;) ). Im so epic!  ;)

From a space-game called Sins of a Solar Empire - where I had a giant Unity capital ship called "Claire" that had an ability that is called Reverie - thus I was originally nicknamed "Claire's Reverie" - but since most games don't allow " ' " and long names, it had to get shorter.  >:D

how i got my name.

Played Cs, downloaded cheats to see how it worked, played on a french server or smthng, deleted cheats. A friend of mine wanted to try out cheats aswell and i was dumb enough to help him find it.

We had a server we always loved to play on, i said i'd help him aslong as he never would use cheats on that server. Well... he did. He got banned (i didnt know it was because of cheats). So we both started writing on their forums (a ban appeal).
They had very strict rules, so ban stayed in place :O 
I found a cheat-scanner on their forums and wondered how it worked aswell. I got banned because steam always logs information about how u use your game or smthng :(
My friend felt sorry for me because i did indeed love that server, and got sad when they banned me.
After some months (half year xD) he bought me a new cs account (it was not so expencive at that time, but i had no income xD).

with that account i wanted to find a more "serious" name than what i used be4. ended up with dr. faggot <- lawls.
As i started playing on the server again i thought i couldn't stick with "faggot" so i thought for a while and ended up with Dr. Drugs ... played with it until a guy started calling me Dr. Druqs with "q" instead of "g" so i switched to capital "G" :P and i have used  Dr. DruGs ever since (like 3 years now)

my old name(s) were:
Dead
Alive
Sabba
I combined those three after some time: Dead (Norwegian) Sabba/Alive <-- or smthng lolz
