The **UNOFFICIAL*** Explain Your name Thread!

514 replies 117 views Edited Apr 30, 2009

Many of us in Home have very clever names for our PSN accounts.

 

And we are quite proud of how we came up with those names. And many of us have put as much effort into the name as we have spent on beautifying our avatars.

...So, I thought I'd start a thread to allow us to explain (brag) about our names.

 

I'll start...I'm cbeyond, because I "see beyond" the obvious.

The name also came from a magazine my parents published in the 1990's called BEYOND.

 

So post 'em...I want to know why you're named what you are

This will probably get moved for being off topic...

 

But mine is based on an anime, Vision of Escaflowne. Shrunken down for obvious reasons, it came up as VofEscafowne. I'm actually not a big anime fan as some might think because this is the only anime I've actually watched in its entirety and having a lack of imagination at a good username, I used that. It works out though because most people don't even know what it stands for and it's always hilarious seeing people trying to type it without making typos.

And I thought you were overly proud Quebecois! Ha!

See, this is why we need this thread!

Thanks, Franco

BabeBro is a slang that was used in Brooklyn to describe a random guy. Just like "yo", "man", "bro", etc.

 

It was used very frequentyly by my favorite rap artist The Notorious B.I.G.

Hello, all. My name comes from the fact that in my house, I am King of the Sofa and I like racing games, so I race at Wide Open Throttle.
