So my steam account wasn't always mine. It was my brothers at one point. I was poor didn't have my own computer or a steam account and I loved playing Garry's mod, problem was my brother was the only one who had it, so we took turns. Eventually he made a new steam account and gave me his old one which at the time only had Garry's mod and Team fortress two (premium account :) His user name was Rampage and well as you can probably guess I stuck with it. same thing goes with the profile pic. it's all been the same for about 8 years. I'm bad with making names so I kept it. And that's my story.

My original name used to be minecraftplayer2091, I chose this because Minecraft was my life. I later changed it to fiber because my other name always got mean comments and OwningFiber2548 is my xbox name, I really prefer fiber because it sounds good. b05783e31ea78735405910039c207d9c.jpg

If you're over 18, type in google "OG mudbone" into google. NSFW and not for the faint of heart.

My first ever one, and it is notorious in my life. It was vintendo101, it was created because of my sister when she created my first steam account 8 or 9 years ago.
VinnyKoren is now my upstanding username as it is just my nickname and last name... nothing to special.

Duckaccino origins:​
I started playing Gang Garrison 2 around 2015 and my name was the default "Player1" but I wanted to be unique. I chose "dunk" which after some time (and watching ONE Adam Sandler movie from 2012) led to "dunkaccino" which I used for a year until 2016 when I decided that "duckaccino" is less associated with that dumb movie. I've been using "duckaccino" ever since.

I really liked (and still do) luigi better than mario, when I was little I tried making my username Luigi but obviously it was taken already, so I just put my house number on the end of it "Luigi609"
However, the exact reason my steam name is TheLuigiBox, isn't very clear; I kind of just luigi-ified the box trot box and then slapped it on my profile.

Jineron... oboi.

At first I did wear the name of "Xyneron" for a couple of years*. I was searching of a good name that began with an X, and then I somehow crafted it from my imagination. I was a bleeding tryhard, at every games, everything. I wanted to master everything that is possible on PC... In games, I was really great... But I didn't had fun. Fun was geeking in my old'ass basement with the damn wish to be the number 1 at everything.

But then, I had enough. The young beast wanted to retreat and became a lion who had the reponsability of a family and a house. So instead of still wearing that name and playing games like a mad man, I became Jineron, couple of months ago**. J is the first letter of my name, and the "Y" became an "i" just because it was more smooth to say.

I still kept "Xyneron" in my steam url profile, a souvenir from my past-self.


* When I say couple of years, I say almost 10 years.
** ~7 Months, more or less.

Got mine from a super from The Incredibles. He was killed by the Omnidroid v. x2. I'm not creative. Don't criticize me.

I got my username(steam) just from my name and it just stuck. My username for wln.tf I just thought it up and it sounded nice and its the first 5 letters of my email. My Discord name changes on jokes.

My story is similar yours but a little bit different. I stuck with the name Kumpir even though it means baked potato.

hi i'm aL and i like stuff

Anyways, here's a simple question, how'd you get your username(s)? To start off this thread, I'll start off with mine! (Also, yes, I love commas.)

Anyways, it all began with a simple download of TF2 and then I hoped it, I started off with that boring real life name user, as in Jose.Gonzalez.2020, and then I switched to 'Sniper' (Please, don't make fun of me.. :c) and at this time I was like very young, and my first server in TF2 was actually PBFortress on Jailbreak, and although I had no clue what I did and or what I was doing, I had fun! Then I swapped out to 'Mickey' and I was playing a crap ton of TF2 at this time, basically whenever I'd get back from school I'd legit play until midnight, and then after years, I swapped out to 'Dorky' and then continued to play PBFortress, but then after some years the downfall of PBFortress came, cause now it's like dead and then after the death, I started playing a crap ton of pubs, and after months, I saw this one guy that just had this simple name 'Alex', and by the way that is my middle-name, so I was like "Ya know... Why not try it?" But I wanted a twist with it as well, cause I ain't no basic boi, so I added an extra 'w' to it. Now, we're at the name 'Alwex' and I was extremely comfortable with that name and for most of my time I had that name for most of my time playing TF2, and then I found Wonderland, and then I felt like a name switch would be a bit more suitable... I guess.

So now I'm at the name Al, and people already know why I switched it but I'll say it again, so when I joined the server, I would always like type in chat, people got to see that the 'l' looked like a 'i', so basically I was called ai which was uh... Great I suppose, and then after ALL those name switches I'm at my current username... aL! (And boio I feel hella g u c c i) And now I still kind of change my username from time to time, such as 'Pokeman aL', 'Master Chef aL', and so on, mainly for the reason that I still play jailbreak and I get myself into the minigame.

So uh, that was the history of all my usernames...
okbai c:
I just combined 2 of my favorite things: Lofi music and the oof meme. and no, its not the name of the guy from an anime, fricc off

I got mine from another popular which is League of Legends.I had another name before this one and which was really ridiculous so I tried to make a new one.
My name is a mix of differents champions.
Vladimir+Fiddlesticks+Shaco(Does play LoL here ?)
They were my favorite champions when I first started the game.
A lots of people don't even know to pronounce my name I don't even know either sometimes, so Vlad is fine with me)

I got mine from a character from one story, which I'm writing with a friend of mine.
At first it was just Wixx, which I considered too short, so I've added the -arion on the end. It's kinda like names of dragons in Warcrafts, and it kinda goes with it, but no more spoiling. :wink:

I was really hungry one day and all I wanted to eat was this really good macaroni that my mother makes, and right when I was thinking "Man I could really go for some macaroni", someone yelled MATT across the lunchroom I was in, right in the middle of my thoughts lol

"I could really go for some ma-"

oh boi... well... all started in 8th grade and I was starting to get obsessed with indie games and music - my best friend at that time and me had these great visions of owning a youtube channel called indietypen - translated into English: indiedudes - but that never happened and I quite liked that name so I stuck with it as indietyp. Yeah it is German, but still always funny to hear others try to pronounce it.

Yes I am still a lover of the independent music and game genre and always will be.

used google search

thats really all

my previously known user here was "F33L" but I don't wanna go too in depth with it, only that it corresponded with my username before, and I wanted to act like an edgy cunt, not knowing it actually made me become one.

Oh boy.
I had a gay elf character in D&D named "Faery Kittyflower" Gay as it gets, just like me.
I played a game called trove and when I decided my starting class will be a Fae Trickster I knew I was going to start the whole fairy theme with my shit, so I named my account "FaeryKittyflower" after my character, but when I had to make a 2nd account cuz my 1st was fucked up, I couldnt use that name so I took "RulerOfTheFae"
I decided to change it as it's too long and the capital letters all in 1 word bugged me so I shortened it to be "Fae Ruler"
That's how I got my name, my wonderfully gay name.

When I created my steam acc, lots if people called me dodo, so I named it dodoman9, the 9 because dodoman was already taken.
Later I wanted a new name, so I was thinking, and I’m a Donald Duck fan ig, and I liked the caracter Scrooge Mcduck, so I added a little twist to it, Mc_Duck
And now I changed it to Waddles because idk
