    Mine is a weird one. It started with Club Penguin.It was an awesome Kids mmo, a shame that they closed it.

    Anyway, when I created my account I had no creativity so I took the name from my buddy the showed me Club Penguin (Pizza035) and simply put a 2 at the end. I used that name a few Years before I had to create a new account for a website because I forgot my old Password.

    And since I play a lot of games I swaped the "Pizza" with Suchti wich is the German word for addicted but I still kept the "0352" Part because playing Club Penguin was one of the best times of my live

    I wanted YourPersonalNightmare on YT, but it was already taken so I settled for the next best thing.

    I tried having fun once.

    My Username is my rl Nickname.

    Some Kid in Elementary Schools tried to bully me for my last name, so he came up with „Kötti". Didn't really bother me, so he repeated it as much as he could to get a Reaction, which then lead to others using that name (not to annoy me, they just thought thats my Nickname).

    And now, more than 10 Years later, it feels weird if someone DOESN'T call me Kötti!

    When I was a kid, I got called Tadpole a lot.  After I got into college, I studied a lot of ancient cultures, especially ancient Greece and the Hydra was my favorite monster.  Since I grew up from a Tadpole and I love Hydras.... Hydrafrog

    Was a fantasy nerd, loved Griffins, still do. Played Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach, made an elven mage, and played around wit the word until I came upon Griffior.

    It's what the classic murloc noise is called in WoW's soundfiles - murlocaggrob to be more specific. I downloaded that for a video I was making when I was ten (it never left my desktop, so don't go searching for it), and I liked the ring it had.

    A man is lying on the street, some punks chopped off his head

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    The Cows, one of my favorite bands wrote a song with the same name. Song is decent but I liked it as a moniker so I adopted it.

    Well my name comes from my WoW days :)

    I created a Gnome and wanted to name him FieserFritz (German for Nasty Fritz) but the name did not work or was taken - can't remember so i messed around a little and came up with FieselFitz.

    That name also sounded perfect for a Gnome and even if i use other Names on other platforms this Name is usualy my Username in any type of fantasy game :)

    I played Pokemon way too much, and Shuckle is one of my favourites. I love how stupidly polarised its stats are (insane defenses, terrible everything else), and liked the idea that even if it gets angry it is so pathetic at attacking that it cannot really do anything about it (the move 'power trick' notwithstanding).

    I use the username as a reminder that no matter how angry I could get playing HS, I cannot do anything about whatever caused it, and nor can it actually do anything meaningful to me.

    Then I made it super nerdy by using the nickname of the gift Shuckle from Cianwood city in Gold and Silver. 'Shuckie' is so thinly veiled that anyone who knows the Pokemon will know what I meant, and anyone equally nerdy as me will know what I really meant.

    Nearly 20 years later, Valkyrie Profile remains one of my top 5 favorite games ever. Arngrim was one of the best (play and story-wise) einherjar, plus teenage me was really interested in various ancient mythologies so finding out there was a "real" Arngrim who was boss as hell (wiki below) cemented him as my go-to user name.

    I enjoy Pathfinder in Apex Legends and Widomaker in Overwatch. They both use grappling hooks, which are awesome in my opinion. Although I've never played it, the art for the video game Shovel Knight is pretty cool. So I decided to combine my favorite video game weapon with an awesome title and there we go ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Gosh dang it, cards bad.

    Pandaren is my favorite race in WoW because of their neutrality (they can choose to join Alliance or Horde, or even stay faction-less) and of course because of Po, the Kung Fu Panda. Combined with my favorite letter 'V' that can stand for both 'peace' and 'victory' and you got my name.

    I dont like having the same name as other players so I combined two words to make this one.  Shotgun + Resupply = Shosupply.  First two talents I used in a game I played back then called natural selection.
