    Donít know if this has been done here before but, flicking through here as usual and I see all sorts of familiar people but many have ids that Iím curious to know where they came from.
    Surely many of you have thought at times wtf is all that about? Well now is the time to lift the veil and let us in on your inner jokes or associations.

    Mine is simple, it was my psn id from the ps3 beta days, back when you had to bolt the modem on the back. Good old days of socom and the like. Actually itís was ďchiefĒ and was usually on a game by game basis. By the time psn launched for real chief was taken so I went for the next best thing. Been around here for what feels like donkeys, and I was a lurker for a few years prior to signing up.

    My story is not very exciting but looking at many of your ids, I think there is some more interesting tales out there.

    Have at it

    I like palindromes, but didn't want to call myself racecar.

    My surname is Rock and I always enjoy the classic Russian villian/henchmen from older films and games so I stuck "avitch" to the end. Always ends up as an available username so kept it.

    I watched the Golden Compass film with my gf after she read the books and found the armoured bears amusing plus I live in a town famous for it's bears. Couldn't come up with anything better at the time.

    I've almost changed it to something with "ecosse" again as that's what many still use anyway but I fear losing Armoured_Bear for good :)

    Used to have a stupid final fantasy related one on here, RinoaMW in the early days, but when the 360 came out thought I'd be a bit more original for my gamer tag.

    Was a huge fan of Rainbow Six, which used to have a "zulu" command and as I always felt pretty heroic bursting in with my squad thought it was pretty good. Thought it was a bit obscure, and more original as a result.

    Everyone just assumes it's because of the Michael Caine film, but I don't mind that either really, it's a good film!

    Anyway to be consistent I started using ZuluHero, it's pretty much my online persona everywhere now.

    It's my actual name. Some think "Dr" is an abbreviation, but that's my first name. I also noticed I must have turned 10 in the last few days. /party horn sound

    I think I answered this question recently, but...

    I am a massive racist who thought that the Witch Doctor in Diablo 3 looked kind of similar to the baddie from Temple of Doom. So I named him after that, and also chose it as a username for some reason (possibly because I am a massive racist).

    We have had this before, but our search system...

    Anywhoo:

    Duffman

    Simpsons fanatic, at least certainly from the start. and in the 90's I was "built" so could at least claim we (our frame) looked somewhat similar, alas I should probably change it to Barney/Moe now ;)

    Oh Yeah!

    Used to be SYS64738 which is a soft reset code on the C64, which holds a special place in my gaming heart.

    Didn't really lend itself well as a name though so changed it to my current one, which is from Monkey Island and amuses me, particularly when uttered with an Irish accent.

    @DUFFMAN5 luckily I have no gains that can turn into fat lol. Although fat seems to just grow naturally around certain parts. Need to start running again:)

    Before I start no mine has nothing to do with Nitrous Oxide as recreational drug... Its far more boring and comes from playing NFS underground on the PS2.

    As a username on PSN/Steam/XBL I use FinalNitrous as anything else seemed to be taken.

    For a long time I assumed TH was Tottenham Hotspur, as you post loads of negative stuff about Arsenal in the PL thread.

    Growing up I had a cat called Stoofer, which we used to shorten to Stoof. Among other nicknames he was also sometimes known as El Capitan, as he was a big old unit. One day it became El Stoof and that just stuck for some reason, around the time I needed a handle for email address, website logins etc
