I'm new here. :) old

Why did you choose your username?

I'm bored, so here's a pretty simple thread. What does your username mean and why did you decide to choose it for Bungie.net? Is your username consistent across other forums/sites? My username is pretty obvious... I was born in '93. I made it almost 5 years ago and kinda regret it. The lack of a capital "J" and "R" has always kinda irritated me. If I could change it today, I'd change it to "Jake_93" or something like that.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] EZcompany2ndsqd Got my username in part from the awesome tv series Band of Brothers. The other part because I have many brothers myself and we are close and well like a Band of Brothers so it seemed to fit and I will keep it always. [/quote]That's bad ass.

  • I always say "Long-story-short", so this time I will go a bit in depth. My brother and I are Star Wars nerds. Ever since we first started getting into the fiction, we have been huge mandolorian fans. We played a bunch of the games like KOTOR, BF, and Republic Commando. We also liked Bioncles and watched all the movies and bought the toys(who didn't). So, my brother and I started building and naming our own Bioncles like any lego-loving kid would. One day my brother made a Matoran and named it "Jolaz". He did this because he had heard some of the Bioncle makers named the Matoran by combining their own first and last names. I followed suit, and named one "Isloc". As we aged, we started becoming Star Wars nerds again and made up our own fake bounty hunters. They were based off of us, so we used the previous Matoran names because they contained our own real names. In our fiction, they were descendants of the KOTOR character "Bendak Starkiller", hence the last name. One of my brother's friends actually wrote a book that at one point featured "Jolaz Starkiller". I later got into online gaming, and remembered that this "Isloc Starkiller" character was supposed to be a bad***. I used that as my XBL gamertag when "Halo Warrior" was already used. I am no longer such an in-depth Star Wars nerd, but the name stuck for me for usernames, as it is quite unique.

  • Prometheus, in Greek mythology, was a figure that embodied the concepts of foresight, self-sacrifice, and knowledge, traits that I try to use in my every day decision making. Furthermore, one particular story tells of Prometheus stealing fire (which is often interpreted as symbolizing knowledge, intellect, and technology) from the gods and passing it on to humans. I've always liked and identified with this story, as much of my life has been geared towards the pursuit of science and helping those around me. I love Greek mythology, and when I decided to pick a name 8 years ago, I wanted a name rooted in this field. I stumbled upon the story of Prometheus in high school and have loved it ever since. If only I didn't have to use numbers at the end....
