well my nickname(as well asthe name of my comic and character) are all based directly on me!

ME ME ME

at my school we have our own sign in names for the computers so that it becomes more monitored and policed.

The sign in name is taken from the first letter of your first name and your surname

Hence J. Urbas = the username: jurbas

There you are the mystery solved!
Everyone's a tosser…but you slightly more

Mine is very similar to yours, jurbas.

My first initial is m but my last name is Howard, pronounced in Maine it sounds like “Howad” so that is what I use.

I dont think I've posted in this thread yet. Memmy was originally a typo of Merry from when I was in HS and hanged out with bunch of Lord of the Rings nerds on Yahoo chats. I was always part of the fast paced conversation between several people and with username as merry_holbytlan, someone was bound to misspell the first name.

I was also well known so I had several nicknames that were deprived from typos such as Murry, Meemy, etc, but Memmy was the popular one. :D

Isn't it obvious? My username is named after my studio, Renga Studio; it's advertising/shameless self-promotion!

BTW, the word renga means “brick” in Japanese.

….i thought the user name was the comic name, so i entered the comic name for my user name by accident.

i probably have the lamest “behind the name” story heh

Few people know this, but it's actually an Acronym.

Myriad- because I have a myriad of talents and awesome aspects to me.
Insatable- because my lust and thirst for more shall never- NEVER- be quenched.
Lugubrious- because I am sorrowful and mournful of how other people aren't awsesome
Krackle- because it is an AWESOME word.
Yardarm- what I hang my enemies from.


…okay, that kind of sucked. The real reason is that it used to be Milknut, which was a character. I chose that name because I was thinking up chipmunk names and it appealed to me. I used it until for some reason I couldn't- it was taken, or I didn't get the conformation email, some crap like that, and I liked it, so I kept using it.
COME CHILDREN. FLOCK TO MY GLORY LIKE MOTHS TO A FLAME.



Maybe that is not the best example.

I actually stole ‘skullbie’ from someone.
He had a really long username, so they called him skullbie for short and I though it was cute.
So when I was trying to think up a name that was better than the one I had before I just typed it down and it stuck.

But now that i think of it most people online mistake me for a guy at first because of the name. :P I should have used **KAWAII~Skullzbiie!!~Nyoa-ron~!**

“Lethologica” is basically being unable to remember the right word at the right time. And I picked it because it's a problem I ALWAYS have.

Mine's in two parts, Acco comes from my Brother, who, when he was young, was unable to pronounce my real name (Alec), and it came out as Ac, this sorta stuck, and people were constantly calling me Ac (mostly cos I came from norfolk, and people there have a problem with letters in the middle of things :P) Anyways, when I was like I dunno, 13, I changed Ac to Acco, it just seemed right :l and for the next 3 years I was just Acco, on Computer Games and the Internets.

Spoot comes from some guy I knew, at this point I wnted to properly change my name to Acco, but I wanted a snazzy last name, I was gonna go by Acco Space, cos it was like, there was nothing after Acco, so it was a Space, yah, wierd logic, but this guy was rambling madly in a forum and off handidly mentioned Spooteh, which I used then as a name for a Comic strip character, and it just sorta grew on me, so I became Acco Spoot, coincidently, about another 3 years later, I was heavily into Dutch history and culture (still am!) and whilst doing some research into my brothers names, I searched Acco Spoot, and found out they were Dutch (supposedly) anyways, yay for random coincidences!!! :D

Back when I started an online game, I wanted a Sonic name but thought that anything with just “Sonic”, “Super Sonic”, or “Hyper Sonic” would all be taken. So I took him to the next level with “Omega”. The game required a number so I chose zero because I thought there were zero others with that name and it just stuck from there.

My name dates back to a very important time of my life.

I used to play an MMO called Star Wars Galaxies. I was a midget with a mullet and a five o' clock shadow. I wielded a large stick.
I had two friends. A trandoshan named Dr' Josh and a rodian named zaneeba.

Zaneeba was an amazing SWG master, and easily became a jedi master. I, playing almost a year before he did, was only on level 30… (I suck at MMOs)

I was unaware, at this time, that I sucked. So I only assumed zaneeba was a god!
Me, zaneeba, and Dr' Josh were actually good friends in real life; me being the best drawer of them. I used to draw comics about our joyful adventures in SWG.
Zaneeba, of course, was a god in the comic, who would speak in only symbols and controlled the powers of bending reality.

Zaneeba actually grew a group following after the comics, and the actual zaneeba enjoyed the publicity.

From then on, I call myself Zaneeba_slave. For zaneeba-ism actually grew to be a small cult in the district, and I being it's creator, made zaneeba a god!

Zaneeba is a comicer here on drunkduck! YAY!


I like to imagine myself as a goblin in a tuxedo. -Zaneeba_slave
