Some people have obvious names and others have more comfusing names. I am curious how you got some of these names.

commontator
06-15-2001, 12:38 PM
One day I was relaxing in a hamock, which is what most people do around here, and somebody said "man you are just a common potatoe" after that I was known as commontator. Even my teachers call me this now.

franklelock
06-15-2001, 12:39 PM
i have used franklelock since registering for yahoo mail 3 years ago. i am a wrestling fan almost as much as i am a coaster fan. my first name is frank, and one of my favorite wrestler's finishing moves is the ankle lock. put them together, it's pretty simple.

Sir Willow
06-15-2001, 12:43 PM
Mine is actually a derivative of one that my high school students gave me when I was teaching at a school in Sacramento. At the time I had a weak attempt at a mustache and several of the kids thought that I looked like the main character from the movie Willow. (you know, the peck!)
<BR>
<BR>Anyways it kinda stuck, but I found when I started to use it online I ran into 2 problems. It was already in wide use, and when I did get the nick I was often mistaken for a girl. Using SirWillow corrected both of those.

well,its obvious where it comes from, but i acquired the nickname from my parents and cousins for my unhealthy obsession with the incredible hulk coaster.

S&SFAN

I thought up that name because I live right next to S&S Power and I love all the rides they build. I am very biased towards this company.

shallowdays
06-15-2001, 08:26 PM
one day i finished building a coaster on rct
<BR>i asked a friend what i should call it
<BR>he said "dogwumba" and it stuck
<BR>dogwumba is pronounced "dog-woohm-bah"

edit: but now i'm called shallowdays, which is a counting crows song

"she's drowning in the shallow days below..."

Flix

anyone who knows me, i have a signature hair style. ever since my barber accidentally gave me a haircut and left the fringe up with a flick, i have had it up like that, this has been like this for about 6years!recently though, i have gave my head an all-over flick, going in the direction of the lead singer from Linkin Park's old cut, and my girlfriend hated it!
<BR>
<BR>that is where i got Flix from, form the word flicks.

My Thrillride name is the name of my first looping roller coaster.

Swimming King
06-16-2001, 11:07 AM
I am a high school/year long swimmer. I love swimming, and competing. I also love Rollercoasters. One time, I was thinking of new lyrics for ABBA's song Dancing Queen (It was in math class or something, and I was bored to death) and so instead of Dancing Queen, I came up with Swimming King. The name stuck, and now I use it all the time.

Well Kraken rules.
<BR>
<BR>So one day I visited the Kraken and asked him if I could use his name. And he said "sure".

swOHman
06-16-2001, 11:50 PM
Location, location, location..... LOL. If you haven't yet figured it out swOHman stands for southwest Ohio man. I live in Dayton which is in southwest Ohio, so I just put two and two together LOL. My original sreename when I first got the interent was bravefan777 becuase I love the Atlanta Braves and 7 is the number of completion in the Bible, but that has little to do with coasters, so when I joined another forum a about a year and a half ago (URC to be exact), I just came up with swOHman. I still can't figure out why nobody can type it correctly though LOL.

VorTeX
06-17-2001, 12:20 AM
Mine does not come from any of the coasters named Vortex... it in fact was chosen about 6 1/2 years ago (in the 7th grade) when my nickname then "The Mac Attack" made most people think I liked rap, something I despised.
<BR>
<BR>It comes from the concept of a spatial vortex, applicable in such things as black holes, wormholes, gravity wells, that kinda stuff.

Well I'm from Canada. And Canadians are sometimes called Canucks. So I chose Coaster Canuck.

skinny_guy
06-19-2001, 11:29 PM
I am 6'2" and about 155 pounds, and believe it or not, I throw the shotput and discus on my high school varsity track team. When I was a freshman a little over 2 years ago, I was the only person on the team that weighed in at under 250 pounds, so everyone on the team started calling me "skinny guy". The name has stuck ever since!

Orient Expressman
06-24-2001, 08:12 PM
Mine named after the Orient Express rollercoaster at Worlds of Fun themepark.

08-03-2001, 03:16 PM
Here's mine: I was walking near a school with a friend of mine and there were French exchange people staying at the school. One of them was outside smoking a cigarette. My friend turned to me to say something and he said, "Hey, Alex" (Alex being my name). The French guy looked at us and said, "Haux" (pronounced "hawks"). I looked at him and said, "Yeah, Haux" and the French guy gave a thumbs-up and said "YEEEAAAHH!!!" really loud! It was funny at the time. That was five years ago and I'm still Haux!

Mine's from the musical 'Ragtime'. Coalhouse Walker Jr. is the main charactor. I thought it'd be cool to have a gay name vs. a coaster name.

DeKalb
08-06-2001, 02:30 PM
One day I was bored and wanted to change my Palace screename, so I changed it to .eKã!3. (that spells DeKalb if you can't read it). So when I signed up here I wanted to get another screename, but I couldn't think of anything else, so that's what I put in.

Tim
08-06-2001, 03:46 PM
My nickname has evolved over the years. It came from two similar names/ideas that morphed into one.

When I was in college I played an online game and was the leader of a clan. I gave out quests that involved searching for a bunch of different types of squid: bbq squid, squid on a stick, etc etc.

My family gave me the nickname tentacle from when I used to wrestle they said my arms were moving around so fast I looked like a squid with a bunch of tentacles. To this day they still call me that.

When I registered for one of my friends HotLine servers I just used the name MagicSquid, and to this day it's stuck.

There you have it, the evolution of MagicSquid. Actually, if you happen to see me driving around town feel free to say hello. My license plate is related to what I've typed here... quite ingeniously if I do say so myself. ;)

antfarm007
08-06-2001, 04:25 PM
The antfarm thing was from when someone had an antfarm thing on their back pack and my last name started with Ant, so the name stuck. 007 is from Bond obviously.

DrachenFire96

Mine is simple, I love the Drachen Fire, and in 1996 I rode it 43 times in a single day, a personal record that I probably will never break.

ForceCoaster
10-05-2001, 05:57 PM
ForceCoaster was my Screen Name and E-mail address from coasterbuzz until i left and came here, so i used the same name

Valpengeist
10-05-2001, 06:03 PM
Well, my screen name's kind of outdated now, but...

When I signed up, my #1 steel coaster in RCT was Valpengeist, and it stuck. Actually, my #1 now is Tempest, but I didn't want to change it.

P.S.- My password is my #2 Wood coaster on RCT...but like Valpengeist, it was overtaken by another coaster.

J-Brew2001
10-05-2001, 06:13 PM
My username is also part of my e-mail adress. The clothing store that I was infamous for going to was J-Crew, so that created part of my name. Back in my college frat days, I was notorious for being the one to tap the last ounce of the keg @ every party and was nicknamed "Brew-Boy". The year was just tacked on since, for some reason, jbrew was already taken as an e-mail adress(which I thought was strange).

Cuddy
10-05-2001, 06:48 PM
CedarPoint is the easy part to figure out. "Mark" comes from a term in wrestling. Mark means--gullible fan. I guess I'm not as gullible as my name would show...

10-05-2001, 06:51 PM
Mines from the simpsons. I like it cuz its kind of an inside joke wit all simpson fans. If you watch the simpsons regularly, you will know where I got it.

Raptor
10-05-2001, 06:55 PM
My user name means I'm not good at coming up with creative user names, so I just used the name of a coaster I liked. Raptor isn't even my favorite coaster, but at the time everyone had MF in their user name, and nobody had Raptor, so I chose Raptor. If I ever come up with a more creative user name, i'll ask the mods to chage it.

Jokercoaster
10-05-2001, 07:45 PM
Well I actually chose this nickname, my nickname in school is G-slick, but I wanted something different when I'm on this site, so I figured that I'm the jokester in my school, I like to tell jokes and make people laugh plus I want to be a stand-up comedian when I grow up, second I'm the person that isn't scared of any coasters and takes vacations at parks, So I added joker and coaster and so became Jokercoaster

Johnny Upsidedown
10-05-2001, 08:06 PM
Well my name was simple.
I love Roller Coasters and being upsidedown on them. So it just fits me. Kinda grew into the name along with the development of my website about coasters. After attending many coaster events people start to rember the name.

See ya upsidedown

10-05-2001, 10:29 PM
Mine came from a nickname my fiancee gave to me. Since we both like coasters and post here I decided to use it for fun. If you met me you could see how much I am not like the moniker except for the fact that my name is Joe or Joey as she calls me.

10-06-2001, 02:32 AM
Well, if you haven't figured it out by now, my name is Doug. Back in freshman year i played in a band and the drummer talked in a real "valley" style. He attached -ness to everything... like coolness... so he called me "Dougness." My AIM name is HisRoyalDougness, but i've shortened it since to just "HisDougness."

My nick come from my extreme hated of this particular poster (JOKES man! Jest Jokes).

Seriously though, peopl give me crap because I tell them that Raptor isnt the greatest invert in the world. I'm quite vocal in my dissenting opinion that Montu, Alpengeist, Top Gun @ Carowinds, Fire Dragon and Batman the Ride (GAm, GAdv, StL) are all more outstanding rides than Raptor. So vocal that someone called me on my "Raptor hating". So that's me, the RaptorHater!

I seem to recall posting on this question before but couldn't find the link. Everyone here calls me mark. That is not my name, I am Andrew, but I use "mark" for a reason.

CP is my home park and the one I visit more than anything else. Mark is a wrestling term used to describe a fan, sometimes gullible, but also knowledgeable. And that is why I am CedarPoint_Mark.

Well, I thought I had replied to this thread already but I guess not. Well, originally I was 1984, named after the greatest novel of all time, "1984" by George Orwell. Lol, and you guys all thought that was probably the year I was born or something. Anyway, I started out as just 1984, until we got a new computer, so I upgraded my screen name to 1984 v. 2.5. Pretty simple.

Plus it sounds pretty dark and Ominous, "Beware TheEye!"

So that's my story.

Mforce2k, Its pretty self-explanatory. MForce = Millennium Force (THE best ride ON THE PLANET!!!!!!) and 2k = 2000 (the year it opened, and I just think MForce2k sounds pretty cool) its a good combination I think.

I know that band! They got quite high up in the music charts here in england if i remember rightly! Very weird music and even weirder video to it!

I bet no one can guess where my name came from, lol. The only reason I have it as my boring name is coz I used to be a mod but I got kicked off coz I forgot to say I was going to Greece for 2 weeks, whoops!

But how do you get a girl to like you?
I feel more comfortable asking this here cause there are only like ten girls here and i know that no one i know will go to this site and see this.And alot of people hear seem like they are in thier teens like me"

so im guess you got your name because you like medusa because she's a girl

SonOfMontu
12-24-2001, 02:41 AM
Ok... time for the brainstormer...
First of all, when Montu had just debuted, I had just started playing paintball. A year later, my friends and I started an Amateur B team. We won some local tournaments around LA. When you play paintball, you can't use your names on the field, or normal talk (at least for us, it was just a bad idea, the other team could hear us talk strategy) so we all came up with aliases to put on the back of our jerseys. I thought Montu was pretty cool. I got Montu on the back of my jersey. Then Son of Beast came out... a long time later. I haven't played paintball much lately, cuz I moved from LA. I just thought Son Of Montu would be sweet for a B&M AIR. So its my name.

I got mine in a really strange way. When I was signing up for the ThrillRide boards a little more then a year ago, I couldn't think of a good name. Initially, I was going to go with the name "Reviewer", which is one of my nicknames, because I review my friend's RCT parks for them. Then, I decided that I wanted something that concered either Cedar Point or Cedar Fair, but I also wanted something that described who I was. While I was thinking, I was absentmindidly flipping through my school notebook on my desk when I saw this one paper. In her English class at the beginning of the year, my girlfriend had to chose a person and write a list of adjectives about them, and she chose me (I guess she had no one better to do), and then she gave me the paper. At least, that what she told me. I always had liked taking the beginning letters of words, and forming new words out of those, so I tried it with the words that she had come up with about me. After about 10 minutes, they came together and spelled out the words "Cedar" "Fair", and "Master". At first, I thought about "Master of Cedar Fair", but then I shortened it to "CedarFairMaster".

1: I am big and soft.
2: I am fuzzy (sentimental)
3: I look sad and alone, like the bears on display in the shops.
4: They like me.
I wanted to say that because I was going to make Teddy bear my username, but it sounded kind of gay.

Ruggie
05-27-2003, 04:13 AM
Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a time where the was no such thing as the 'Internet' (>crowd respondes< GASP! "SAY IT AIN'T SO!"). Yes, my friends, in your eyes, we may have lived in the dark ages, but we were still able to share information, converse, play games, and download/upload files on systems that were known as Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's...although this 'forum' is a BBS, these were dramatically different back then...I want responses from folks who remembers these things...such as WWIV and >horray!< DOOR GAMES!).

These were run by various individuals that wanted to hook-up with other friend's computers...and these were FREE!!

To get on topic, my original 'alias' (as they were commonly called back then) was Hitman (Named after Bret 'The Hitman' Hart).

I would logon using my old P.O.S. IBM XT (8088...this thing ran at about...2-4 MHZ, methinks, and had about 640 kb of RAM..DOS 5.0 last time I used it). We're talking ANSI & ASCII graphics, text-only screens.

When the Internet went corporate, I had aquired a 286, and was actually able to do limited Internet Browsing (Albeit text-based). I ended up logging on to one of my first IRC chat rooms, and, surprsingly, Hitman was not taken.

So, as I chated 'online', when asked my ASL, I was about 16-17 years old. Many of the folks I chatted with were in their 30's, so I was considered the 'Rug-Rat' of the group. 'Rug-Rat' (and many forms of it) were already taken, so I had chosen 'Ruggie'. Shorter, yet, more audibly pleasing s/n. And it has stuck since.

What ticks me off is that there have been SEVERAL HUNDREAD/THOUSHAND Ruggie's out there over the years, so it completly killed my notion that I thought it was original.

Long story, I know...but I thought it would be interesting.

By the way, "mark" has a wrestling meaning to it as well. It was probably all those "marks" in the seats that cheered on your namesake in the early 90s.

It actually came from a custom character that I created in an N64 wrestling game. 2000 is just some random number.

Now my father is gone, so there is less confusion. Everyone calls me Hank except my mom, my wife, and my brother. My last name translates into Fisher, which is the name I give when ordering a pizza or requesting reservations at resturaunts.

So, my user name was kind of a no-brainer.

I set one thing straight- my name is not Jimmy. I just thought of a name, added on "coaster" being a male, added man. And somehow thats how my name came to be....had nothing to do with..anything.

This is an old thread, but interesting so I thought I would bring it back.

I got my username because I didn't what I wanted to be and when I was in 4th grade I was in a group and to do a presination in front of the class. We had to come up with fake names so I came up with Sparky. I have no clue why. But now when I look at the word Sparky, it sounds weird, so I just changed it around a little bit and got a new name and I liked it and made it my username.

For those of you wondering about my username, I have had a life long interest in meteorology, the science of weather, which is what I'm currently studying in college. My favorite field of meteorology is tropical cyclones/hurricanes. During my earlier years especially as a child, I always followed the tropical season closely as a hobby tracking and observing hurricanes as they occur. And having been through several hurricanes that had hit the Texas coast, I've been amazed by their spectacular power and fury unleashed by nature.

I was practically given the name hurricane by my classmates way back in high school. And so that's how I got it.

I was named after Saints Andrew and Anthony, plus Anthony was my grandfather's first name. I took Paul as my confirmation name (religious, do NOT want to get into it). Paul who was converted from Saul.

well, when we got windows xp, and we all had to have seperate accounts, instead of just using our names like what would have been logical, my dad picked these random usernames. e is for my first name, j is my middle name, and atwd is my last name minus all the vowels except for the a. i use this as a user name for everything now b/c otherwise i would get confused.

I've used Cid as an internet alias for many years now. It was my first Aol account name, and I have kept it on Aim since. I'd say I've had it since about 1997. The only bases I could begin to think of for it would either be Sid 6.7 from Virtousity, or the forever reoccuring Cid charcters in the Final Fantasy series.

I don't really have any nicknames in real life and i wanted to come up with something other than my usual screen name and the only thing i could think of was how i usually light the lint on my socks on fire at a friends house, and i used to carry a lighter but i don't smoke. Come to think of it i haven't done the sock thing in a while, so i might have to do that soon.

I used to use an NCDJ when I first got online (but did not discover Thrill Network up until the last year or so if I recall correctly), but since I have not worked in North Carolina Radio since 2001, it didnt seem to fit.

My mom made mine, and then didn't use it so I did. So later I got banned for 3 days for having two accounts, when really the one was mine and this was my mom's, but I prefer this one anyway, everyone knows me on it.

I took a fairly overused and uncreative name-coasterfreak-got rid of the "e" to make coastrfreak and put it together with a random number-2000. Thus equalling an overused and uncreative name with a number.

Hank
05-15-2006, 10:43 PM
My nickname, given to me in high school. Actually, because I am a Catholic church musician, and I played masses and funerals every morning to pay for my tuition, my classmates called me Hank the Pipes - you know, the pipe organ - and sometimes they just called me Pipes.

What I think is quite humorous is that the Polish immigrants in the late 1800's and early 1900's all had nicknames, usually using vegatables for the names - such as Beans, Peas, Oats, etc. - or the veggies Polish names such as Barley (Kasha) Rice (Bialy) etc.

However...

My uncle Johnny was called Fica. When I got older and was receiving pay checks, I was so po'd because every check had a witholding for FICA which I thought was my uncle getting some of my wages! Of course, FICA is Social Security witholdings.

Theres this band called Slipknot. And they used to rock back in 1999-2001.

Coincidentally, I joined a coaster site in 2001. So I put the bands name, plus my street address at the time.

Now slipknot sucks......

That is my sad tale.

To do that click on Hi,bigbellybuys! on the far right of the main toolbar at the top of the page. Your main control page thingy will come up. On the control panel on the right of the page click Edit Profile. Scroll down a bit to the Additional options section and change your title under the custom user title section.

I thought I already posted in this thread , but apparently I haven't...so here's something c&p'd from another forum I go to where I have the same name.

"I'm a roller coaster enthusiast. So I decide to check out a coaster book. Called Roller Coasters, mmkay. And near the front of the book, the history of roller coasters. Good. The name La Marcus Thompson came up. Apparently he was the first person to get a patent and build the first real coaster. And it says he was probably influenced by the Mauch Chunk Switchback Railroad, what was originally just a coal transporter, but was popular with tourists, who paid $1 to ride this thing. Interested in it and RCT2, I went to the official RCT2 website. The first link I liked was Thrillnetwork.com. So yeah. Went there, and decided to register after what, 1-2 months? The name came to mind. Unfortunately I was too quick to space or spell Mauch right. Now I use it at almost every forum I go to."

JamMasterJ
05-20-2006, 11:55 PM
Let's see...I'll give you a few of my nicknames too, 'cause they're kinda funny...

JamMasterJ - I love all kinds of music, and I'm a pretty good singer...also, he (Jam Master Jay) had just gotten shot and I was heartbroken beacause I love Run-DMC. So people just started calling me that. I didn't feel like putting spaces in it when I typed it.

Iceman - I supposedly have ice in my veins instead of blood. This came as a development of being 6-0 pitching varsity ball as a freshman. Unfortunately, when I recently cut myself, I found this to be untrue. Then again, I wasn't pitching at the time...

J - I for some reason went through a phase earlier this year where I could not manage to spell my own name. Don't ask why, I just couldn't do it. The sad thing is, it's only three letters long. J-A-Y. Not that hard, right. I proved that wrong. So, my teachers and friends cut it down to one letter.

Hurl J - They combined me with my fav woodie.

I was working in ride photo at Cedar Point when I registered. Truthfully, I thought I was going to spend more than one season plus one day working at the park. I loved my job, but as most of you know, amusement parks don't pay squat, and when I got a better offer to become a travel agent, I had to take it. Oh well, I will always have the memories and this screen name anyway.
