Explain your name

  1. Explain your name

    Right I have seen some cool and some not so cool names in my years of playing online games and I often wonder how the name came about. Taken me all this time to think- ask them!

    So me first, Guinny is a shorter term derived form Guinness. I was Guinness 8 years ago in my first love of rtcw playing for a clan caled UDS. Guinny was used on comms and when we had to incorporate a sponsor in our tag Guinness did not fit. So Guinny was officially born and it kinda stuck, even after the sponsors went the way of the dodo!

    Now you lot :)

  8. Re: Explain your name

    It's from a nickname when I came back from travelling with a massive beard and long hair. I had another online name but my nephew used it for years when I gave him my old pc so it's his now.

  10. Re: Explain your name

    Fuego is short for 'El Fuego Fuerte', which was the name of my main character in an MMO I used to play a few years ago. So I've now just sorta adopted that, and variations of it, as my online name wherever I can.
  11. Vacoy some sort of fucking fish

    Re: Explain your name

    I searched for a nice online name, and after some tries Vacoy came out. Liked it and it just sticked ;P
    got it for a year or 3 now

  13. Re: Explain your name

    My real name is: Michael Augustyn and the Y in Augustyn is quite special in Austria (everyone writes it: Augustin here) so i love the letter Y. During my internship in england i was called Mike, and the combination of mike and my favorite letter makes Myke. And i like the '.' at the end of bandname 'Bloodsimple.' therefore i use it in the nick.

    Quite a long explanation for such a strait forward name.

    I'm interested where Pissmidgets nick comes from =)
