    Hello everyone.
    I always wondered, by what principle players choose their nicknames and the names for characters. Let's do a little survey.

    What are you guided by choosing your nickname?

    Maybe it associated with some kind of story?

    Or maybe your character is named after liked hero from any book or movie?

    Did you come up with a name for your new character each time anew, or use one already familiar to you?

    For example, my nickname is the name of one of the characters from the book series about the flat world, written by relatively well-known writer Terry Pratchett. The first time I picked it for some games for a long time, and since then pretty used to it. And that turned out to be very convenient, it still has never been occupied by someone else.

    Wow, thanks.
    It will be interesting to read. To be honest, I did not expect that someone else has already asked a similar question.
    I'm sorry for creating a recurring theme.

    Well seeing as I never answered the other thread, my name came from the fact that my friend who I started gaming with called himself chaos theory, so people would know we were together ( we always used teamspeak too) I wanted a similar tag, so chaos effect was born, it also suited because back in the day we were normally the top of any scoreboard, so that was the effect we had on a room Chaos :).It was taken on this game so I use Kos, K-OS.

    I have used c_dated meaning carbon dated (age related) then my daughters' boyfriend pointed out it could mean sedated, probably a good description for my play on many occasions, but pride being what it is I wanted something better for the ego. I decided on the Bofors gun (the Bofors 40mm being popular during WW11 as an AA gun) Then a typo meant my first stab at setting up a nick was accepted as Bofor and I kept it.

    Ignavus was just an amusing Latin word i found:

    Im known for being sneaky, sniping and using bettys to guard me, so dastardly and cowardly seemed apt, I know Cardu would agree
