First of all, Happy new year!! Great thread!
I usually stay thinking about other's nickname! I just took a look on the other thread, it's very nice!!
As for Tepples I tought it was something with Keppler an Teppes, but it's origin is a lot simpler than this.
As for Shonumi, first time I 've read this nick I read "chorume" wich, besides the bad pornunciation of Google Chrome by a friend of mine it's not a good thing, I think the word for it in english is Leachate.
Also it's nice to know YOSHi is still around and active!!

By the way, my username is just my first name. Wich is very uncommon for a brazilian guy. :lol:
In fact I always see this as a last name, AFAIK my father gave it to me because of a soccer player, and I even don't like much soccer!!
I used to use the nick Decerebrado, but it was taken by other guy and I just left it.
I tried some nicknames I tought was funny and more personal, but I didn't like any.
I think more personal than my name is impossible and my friends can easily recognise me!!

Hamtaro126 actually stems as a main alias, Lesser Variations of me by username are:

SmilyMZX (on some older boards, and DeviantArt... because I cannot change my username to what I want to use unless I pay a fee for a type of premium membership on DA, which sucks)

AtariHacker is an Atariage account that I made is actually a result of trying to experiment with another new username.

H126The3rd WAS my Youtube channel's third alt name, I changed it even though it is still internally called that, My first was lost in time, and second was shut down (by me, with rage) due to meddling on youtube's part
AKA SmilyMZX/AtariHacker.

Mine is actually "Tomaitheous Gun". Someone gave me that nickname in real life a long time ago. Tom -> Tommy Gun -> Tomaitheous Gun.

From my older post: (no need to re explain)
My father is in the military, and some guy asked for commander Espozo, and no one knew what the heck he was talking about. My father's last name (which is obviously mine) is Sebastino, so you can see why there was some confusion.
My first name is Drew, if anyone cared. I also said this before. People always botch my last name, (even people who know me) but never that bad. It's pronounced phonetically.

Apparently, esposo is spouse in Spanish, but I didn't know that when I chose it as my user name... (Like how some other user wasn't familiar with a word from another language...)

That was good for a laugh! :lol: My father had an old Windows 98 computer with some files he wanted to get off of it but wouldn't work because it had a bunch of viruses, so I took out the hard drive and attached it to a less old Windows XP computer, and found that the hard drive was only 8GB. Best part is, it took 20 minutes to dump. :lol:

In portuguese too, but I think it's actually spelled "esposo" in both languages. But in portuguese, an "s" between vowels sounds like "z". I know that I always think of a married guy when I read your username.
the hard drive was only 8GB.
The hard drive in my first computer (a 386) was only 120MB, and I don't even recall running out of space back then! You laughing at 8GB makes me feel like a dinosaur! :lol:
