My username was always just my full name, and when i was younger that was no problem, and I have such an awful last name that it was never taken so I could have it everywhere. Eventually giving that name out to friends was a super big headache, so I stopped doing that.

People have called me Jakey my whole life, and I had the idea that it would be useful to have a name close enough to my name that it was something I would respond to, but something different from my actual name. Jakey it was.

Im not sure how Prime came about, I have about 5000 hours in Warframe, so people often assume I got my name from Warframe, but you need to realize that I needed to pick my username before knowing anything about Warframe. It just happened to fit.

I still love my username after all these years and I don't see myself changing it, it doesn't hide my identity, but it's still an alias so I can differentiate people online versus irl. If someone calls me Jake they are typically close friends or IRL friends, Jakey is less formal, and I like being able to have the 2 be seperate but close enough that people wont find it weird switching to Jake once they know me well enough.

I'm uncreative

Creative enough to use your own name as your username, that's at least creative.

My username was years in the making to be honest lol. First it was BookOfOne. That was cool for a few years, but then it just fell off and I disliked it more and more. I read a lot so I still wanted something with "book" in it. I was just trying to make a cute sounding name with book and then bookie just popped into my head. Of  course it could be like the word Bookie which is a bookmaker. But really, it's just me trying to add a cute sound to book 😂. After a while people began to know me purely as bookie... so it stuck lol.

I got my gaming username (Lotus4Elise) from a combination of the two reasons why my parents chose Elise as my middle name. My mother's favorite classical song being Fur Elise, and my father's favorite car being a Lotus Elise.

Original xbox generated username was "VirtualRogue10" CRINGE

Anyways over the years "Virt" kinda stuck with me and I made variations upon it, most of which have aged significantly and make me cringe as I'm typing them. 

One day I just happened to across this name, if I wanted to be philisophical I'd say it comes from the Roman Author "Virtruvius", in reality I just got it from the Lego Movie and tweaked the spelling and here we are today.

My full name is Manuel, and literally everyone call me "Manu", so I don't have to explain why my username is Manu.

My full name is Luigi, but my family and friends call me 'Luichi', my username is my nickname in lowercase.
I have many nicknames but I chose this one because I feel it is special.
