What's the reason behind that odd username?

Everyday, we get lots of new members with really 'odd' user ids 😉 . So, I think it would be interesting to know the reason behind that odd yourname of yours.

I'll tell you my reason, but I got to hear yours first !

So get started [​IMG]

My official name is Prateek Varma but on net usually my id is raj87verma88. I have two names like most of us have(atleast here in north India, I don't know about other places) one for school, bank, etc official work and the other which your family and friends call you by or a nick. Therefore i use my second name i.e Raj 87 is the year of my birth i write varma as verma on the net and 88 has no meaning, i don't know why i write it.
The number 8 is considered lucky in Chinese culture. I guess you're gunning for good fortune perhaps? 😉

I probably have the most uncreative username: Ash, short for Ashraf. I'm not good with thinking up good usernames. At least its simple. But it was kinda hilarious to be mistaken for a female during my early days here 😉

I think the worse username I had before in forums was "zero_play". I had no idea why the heck I chose that.

I see 😁

I don't know for sure, but I guess I had heard someone say "The Big J" on the Television. I liked those words and replaced J with 'K' Muwahahaha 😁

So, 'The Big K' has been around for past 8-9 years!

Gohm is short for gohmchin. A gohmchin is a Tibetan Buddhist lay priest. I was involved in Rennaisance fair acting while in college and my character was a gohmchin from Bhutan. My firends always thought I am a "cheesey" personality so they would change it to gohm cheese for a laugh. Once the internet came about, that became my handle and eventually shortened to gohm.

LOL, good thing I was not drinking milk because it definately would have come out my nose from laughing so hard at that Ash!

That reminds me of an old Far Side cartoon:
The mating calls of animals
(cricket) chirp chirp; chirp chirp
(frog) rriiibit, rriibit
(man) hay bay-bee; hay bay-bee

Okay, what about others? Most of us here have a pretty odd username. So tell us about it.
