I've enjoyed reading the posts in this thread, so here's my story.

I first wanted to call myself Erosenin (I read Naruto last Spring), but of course it was already taken.

Rip Van Winkle is a Washington Irving character who falls asleep in the mountains and wakes up twenty years later. One of my first bosses called me Van Winkle because I would doze off in my office.

I need my sleep, I like my couch, I love my bed. And as the years pass, it gets worse :)

And then I thought Winkle would kinda fit a Taru.

I'm a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000/Rifftrax. I have every episode on my hard drive and usually I'll watch them when playing ffxi so it's only natural I named my character "Servo".

Played retail under the name "Razi" short for "Raziel" because I liked the legacy of kain soulreaver series. He was a taru. After they killed the original ffxiv and started the realm reborn reboot, I rerolled from lalafell to a Hellsguard Roegadyn cause it was hard to see the tiny lalafell.... Red skin and big I decided I needed a good strong yet goofy name, so I picked Carrot Atlas. I used Atlas because well.... strong guy that "carried" the world on his back, and Carrot cause he was colored like a Carrot, and because Kakarot hehe. Was a poetic choice I carried over to nasomi after I ditched ffxiv. My alts named Sweetpeaz cause we "go together like peaz and carruhtz"(forest gump)

Cheers;)

I couldn't quite figure out what to name my character so I was scrolling through songs.

Found a song from my favorite Japanese band Dir en Grey called "Embryo"

I see a lot of unique names these days, and I'm curious: What made you decide on that specific name? :o

I'll start -

When I first started playing FFXI in 2003, I was in the middle of re-reading the Lord Of the Rings trilogy, and was part of the way through The Two Towers. The character Eowyn's name is the basis for "Llowyn". ^^

Next? :D


Such a missed opportunity... could have went with "LoLowyn" instead!!

In Game name: When i was 12 or 13 and started playing FFXI, I hit random and went with the first name, Frutaut. So many fruity jokes have been made but it's my name, and my fruity jokes so it's stuck.

Forums/Xbox Name: GrendelsPRGuy: Always loved the Beowulf mythos and have a habit of playing the bad guy so I started using Grendel sometime in late high school. I always end up explaining where Grendel comes from because apparently people don't read, and I got my PR Degree so I started using GrendelsPRGuy.
