Simple, where does your nickname come from.

I'll start:

My nickname comes from a game called Heroes V Might & Magic: Hammers of Fate, the main caracter there is called Wulfstan, so I thought I'll use it, because i like dogs/wolves.

My second nickname i sometimes use in-game is Archan or Archon, Archon comes from Fable The Lost Chapters and is the ancient king who lived many years ago in the Fable TLC Lore, Archan is just a variaty of Archon, replaced the "o" with an "a" ^^

I've gone through a few player names myself - My first name was S.W.A.T about 6 years ago on counter strike source lol, that changed to autoswat - and then I started playing mmos where I changed to mujina. A Mujina is a Japanese myth and its basically a shape-shifting badger ^^ hence my avatar.

What Axiom means:
1. A self-evident or universally recognized truth.
2. An established rule, principle, or law.
3. A self-evident principle or one that is accepted as true without proof as the basis for argument.

Basically the mathematician in me likes it. It's a universal, underlying law that cannot be breached.

How I came to be using Axiom:
Started playing DAoC when it was released (7/8 years ago now.. wow.. where'd that time go Shocked !) and was recruited into one of the top guilds on server Axiom Knights who took the name for its meaning. Rose through the ranks and eventually became Guild Master when the guild shifted over to Warcraft. Set up Axiom Knights and spent 3 awesome years as one of the top raiding guilds, also having setup the character Axiom as bank alt.

Although Axiom is now a non-played rogue in that game, I wanted to take the name on again.
I guess in some ways it's my little tribute to the hundreds of people that I've shared so many hours of fun gaming with and as a nod towards some pretty impressive gamers especailly those who first started AK back in the day.

Malcolm Reynolds. The main character of Firefly series (only 14 episodes were made Sad, dunno why, it was awesome) and movie Serenity. Captain of his own small cargo spaceship, a freelancer. Mostly good, but sometimes harsh and blunt. He gave me a good laugh. So I thought it'd be fitting for a space-game. Smile

Hehe, quite long story here.

In my old town there was a dog who was called after a really old type of Radio in Hungary: Sokol radio (szokol rádió). Old Soviet production so it can happen, that Daneska knows how it looks like. Smile

Some screens: -=HERE=-

So the dog had 1 brown and 1 blue eye. Around 14-15 years ago some of my class mates started to call me Szokol, because my right eye is brown and the left one is blueish-greenish. Soon the word Szokol turned into Szoky. Sadly the name Szoky was used in many games and e-mail addresses, so I had to modify it a bit. So I became Szokhee (I'm using it now for around 11-12 years).

I have another nick which is Daemaia. It has some connections to my first char in WoW (I was and am playing always a warlock as a main char). That's where my avatar came from Smile.

Had a few nicknames in my time. This one came from a rather long and entertaining dream I had.

Steiner is the name everyone featuring in dream was calling me, although I have no idea why they did. I won't bore you with the all details of the dream but one vivid part involved me drinking my weight in absinthe and getting a werewolf pregnant.

Needless to say, the werewolf was married to the local magistrate. Good times.

Mokoto

My name effectively orginates from the Special Features section of the Finding Nemo DVD, (fairly sure thats a unique root) in which it has the international version of the seagulls saying "Mine, mine, mine!" and the Japanese version sound like Mokoto. Mokoto was the root for all my WoW Beta characters names and for my main come day of release. Everyone tends to pronounce it wrongly; the o sounds are short.

Iv used a few nicknames but the one ive had the longest is Ænigma. I stared playing games that wouldnt accept the Æ so i had to change to Aenigma. This i use in most games but when i came to create a second character in EVE i couldnt think of one so i chose xaenigma, i think the nickname suits the space MMO games so iv used it with this game.

I've just been looking for things with Nathan Fillion that plays Malcom in the series cause hes such a cool guy, there isn't much interesting stuff he did but I have been following the detective series hes in, Castle. Which is only interesting cause hes in it, but meh.
