Where does your PSN username come from?

1,224 posts in this topic

Mine was a bit of a long trip, I have had many names over the years; none of which have aged well from my perspective and also came down to them not being original enough as there had been many others that would take them before me.

So a couple of years back as I was dealing with these hard dilemmas we so often come across i put this brain to work; what name can i come up with that nobody in perfect mental health would think about or use?

Well a fond memory I have as a kid is eating a Portuguese style Fruit Cake (pictured bellow) at Christmas, it tastes like cardboard, it's dry and really I believe was used as a torture method instead of water boarding as I am sure it is a lot more punishing!

Anyway its called Bolo Rei, it translates to King Cake I added the "s" between the words hinting that it's "the Kings Cake" and Voila never had a issue with anybody taking the name and I get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I see it, a little giggle and nobody has been crazy enough yet (or brave) to take that name.  :awesome:

Zanreo is the internet nickname I've been going by everywhere for the last few years. It doesn't mean anything in particular, but is just a made-up name/word that sounds kinda cool. So if you see a Zanreo anywhere, it's most likely me.

Lol brainwashed! Bolo Rei is the after birth of cakes!

I have tried all shapes, sizes, kinds and prices; i think this will be one of those topics where we have to agree to disagree  :giggle:

Mine comes from Lord of the Rings, which is an awesome book/movie. The roman numeral "II" is just because 'Evenstar' itself was already taken by someone that hasn't even used their account since PSN started. I use some variation of Evenstar for all of my online accounts, but I usually just like to use the name by itself if it isn't already taken.

I thought i had responded to this thread but after looking through 24 some pages I realised maybe I haven't

 

 

Ok snakebit10 comes from my love of a metal band named The Shodown. It is in one of their songs plus I seen it on a liscense plate in one of their photos back on my days on myspace. They say at their concerts git snakebit and it means you have seen one of their shows. the 10 comes from 2010 the year I got my ps3 and created my psn account.

 

That is were snakebit10 comes from.

The first part of my username "Leon" is spanish and translates to lion, an animal of which i have come to respect due to what it had symbolized in the medieval era and it was also the capital of the northern spain during Reconquista era. "Garza" is in reference to my real life last name and was a name given to pre roman era spanish hunters who had traits associated with a bear. "321" is in reference to how in EDM theres always a sort of countdown before the drop and the numbers 321 are always the most intense set.

My name comes in two parts the first is from final fantasy 8 the ship that riona and squall find  most people ask me if it was based on the game. So that's the ragnarock part the second part came after I couldn't use the name as it was took so after I thought for a min I added the w at the end most JP players are intrigued by this as I found out a w at the end of any name means you are laughing at yourself or the name something alone those lines. But ckw is my wife's name so that's why I added the w.

I just love the show so much i just had to have a nickname from it.

If you're into the mocumentary genre you should definitely try it!

All 'Ron_Swanson's' i tried were taken.

Guess other people love the show too :D

Mine is from those tropical centipedes. Apart from tropicalCentipede was too long. The reason for the first letter being lower-case with the start of the second word being upper is because I'm a program and that's normally how I name variables. xD

I created my PSN ID around midnight so I thought I'd base something around it. Then I had trouble thinking of what I should add to it and ended up going through my games until I got to Final Fantasy XIII so I tried MidnightLightning but it was to long. I then shortened it to MidnightLight but it was taken so I went through some other languages until I ended up settling for Lumière. (which is French)

Mine comes from the fact I like Marvel and the first letter of my name. The numbers came straight to my head when making the psn. I dont know how so I just put them there.

My comes from the fake name I'm using pretty much everywhere. And I did not want to use instead of space "_" so I stuck it together.

I've always had the Ash/Satoshi nickname so the name was decided but I couldn't find the right surname, I wanted two kanji xxxkami, I first had Zetsukami but then I started playing Persona 3 Portable and Zetsukami was too long xDDD So I had to shorten it. And that's how Ookami was created.
I write it as High God 大神 (Ogami) but read it as Ookami which also means "wolf".
