What does your username mean? Why did you make it that way?

My username is very simple. I like 8-bit stuff and microcontrollers. And I'm a guy. Who isn't a guy here anyway, lol. I'd like to see some NES developer girls :D

Several username origins were mentioned before.

I picked the name of a not very popular character from an anime I liked since I was a kid (most people who watched this anime don't even know this is his name), thinking that not many people would pick the same name. I myself don't like the character, I just think the name sounds cool.

When I first started using this username, I was a teenager. Unfortunately I am no longer one.

A friend had the user "teenager" in his teens. He was no doubt very teenagey.

I chose mine in a split second because i'm just reinventing the wheel. Not very thought-through.

I took my handle from the reanimated skeletons in Doom II. Prior to that I just used (and occasionally still use, depending on the place) various abbreviated forms of my real name.

Someone in high school called me 'dustmop' once, so I decided to make it my handle.

No clue (yeah) about "Zepper", and no, it's not a pun with "tepples". It was a replacement for my old "Fx3", still used in my YouTube channel by the way.

My name is Doug F. I previously used this handle...here...

http://www2.digitech.com/soundcomm/guit ... ductid=240

and was too lazy / unimaginative to think of a new one. And, I wish I had, because I don't like it. In the old days I went by 'pedestrian', but I don't like that either.

I prefer 'Doug', btw

When I was a kid I used to read all of the Asterix comics, and loved them like crazy.

Then when WoW was launched I made a character named Getafix because my character was an old mage with long white hair, and that matched the character of Getafix in the Asterix comics pretty closely.

But...Someone reported me, saying the name was derogatory somehow, and Blizzard made me change it. So I changed it to Getafixx, which they seemed to accept just fine. And I've used it as my handle since.

Unfortunately, I know this all too well! The teasing was in elementary school, though.
My birth name was "Dustin", and the second I turned 18, I took my grandfather's name "Daniel".

My username "Alp" is the exact same name I use in the hentai industry, actually!
An Alp is a homosexual incubus, so I thought the name would suit me rather well! :P

I have an official mascot for my future games, inspired by the now-defunct Elf Corporation.

I was into glossopoeia as a kid. When I signed up to the flat assembler forums, my preferred username was taken, so I translated it into one of my old languages.

Seems to have worked; every search result I've ever seen for it is me.
