I've seen strange names across DDO and I was woundering what's the the story behind your Ussr name.

Mine doesn't really have a story, it's just the name of my favorite galaxy. http://www.space.com... But that was already taken, so I added the _Z to it. It makes sense that way, it starts with A and ends with Z. :)

Oh, I misread the OP. I don't have a United Soviet Socialist Republic name.

I've been thinking to make a thread like this.

My name name is pretty self explanatory. The # 1 in front is obviously because the plain name was taken. The "1" is in front, as opposed to the end or some other #, is to symbolize that I am only 1 devils advocate, if you don't see things from my point of view, remember I'm just 1 devils advocate, blame me not the position, & find another advocate who can argue it better / more to your liking, but don't reject the position after hearing just me. Better yet, find some one who actually holds the opinion, (provided that they know what they're talking about).
I cannot write in English, because of the treacherous spelling. When I am reading, I only hear it and am unable to remember what the written word looks like."

I was once a troll:

My username was the poisoner (different forum)

However, the Kind saint ATMY took me in, and restored me as a fellow doctor of the Knoxian church.

I am now known as TheAntidoter, protecting the faith with my skillset.

"In elementary school a couple of my friends would call me "Air Max" intending to be ironic as a friendly jab at my lack of any real basketball skills. While I was ok because I was taller than my classmates, the "Air Jordan" moniker did not fit my skills at all.

This was also around the time the Nike 'Airmax' shoe brand was reaching major popularity and so it was a natural ironic nickname given that my name is Max.

My usage of "Airmax" as a username didn't happen until a couple years later in the late 90's when I went to a boys boarding school for my first year of high school, and my girlfriend went to a school in another state. To keep in touch with each other (this was before cell-phones were a standard, and constantly using the school pay phone was annoying) she made me my first e-mail account which was AirMax123@hotmail... Since then, I've used "Airmax" as pretty much all of my on-line user names, XBL, PSN, various e-mails, fantasy football names etc... Now if I need to make a new account for anything I generally use AirMax followed by 1227, because its my birthday.

So that's why my DDO name is Airmax1227."
