Let's play a game.

From where did your username come?

Mine was the username given to me in the 8th grade computer programming class where I originally played Utopia.

I hope you didn't just reveal your login credentials! Someone could totally go to your school, log-in to your IBM PC XT, and mess up your 8th grade classwork ;)

..for me, "Cow" because I really like cows and small-sized cow stuffed-animals (I stopped collecting them after high school, though), and I had been working on incorporating Smashing Pumpkins songs into a screen name.. lots of bad screen name variations around 1996.. like "CherubRock1979".. before combining "Cherub Rock" and "Cow" for "Cherub Cow". 1995's "The Prophecy" was also still in my mind, so I was really into the angelic hierarchy.. I liked the idea of cherubs (separate concept from putto) representing the mind and their being intermediaries/messengers between the real and the imaginary.

you know that story about Rumpelstilskin? meet his Dutch cousin Repelsteeltje, During more then 3 decades of using this nickname it got shortened to Rep by now. I suspect in a couple of years people will call me R

I started using it about 20 years ago when I created my first email address. Agri is short for Agricola, which is Latin for farmer, which is my last name (at least, the Dutch variety).

Yeah I've played it a few times, but not enough considering I actually own it :P

I've used it for email (not anymore) and a forum we used in highschool (not anymore, obviously). So I think this is the only place I'm using it right now.

"Agri is short for Agricola, which is Latin for farmer"

Yay! When I finally took Latin, I kept reading about "Agri" since beginning Latin was all about grammar and farming, and I was like, "Wow, I bet that's the reasoning behind Agri's name." Very cool :D
Same thing with Daemon's name after I watched Mr. Robot. :p

..
"Do you use your Utopia username elsewhere or just here?"

I hope you don't intend to follow up on the terrible things I've done across the Internet.. but yes, same name on a bunch of sites :p

Ok Repel, but that doesn't help me sleuth you because your name is too generic.

The first year or two I was under the name JadeTygress (from Green Tigress on Gauntlet Legends, which was my favorite arcade game in 98-99). Kaylana didn't come around until late 2000, which actually originated on Utopia as a character I created in Utopia Roleplaying. No particular inspiration for the name, I just liked the sound of it.

For some reason, GTers ignored JadeTygress but Kaylana stuck, so I dropped "JT" even though that was my oldie name since no one knew who JT was anyway.

I don't have much use for internet handles anymore, but it's still what I consider my default online nickname.

my 2nd province in utopia was titled "hood ornament" - what I was going to turn enemies into as I ran them over. I was a wee little teenager. It was bad. but I was called hood as a nickname and it wasn't a bad one.

I ended up misspelling "Minion". Boss from the 1995 Twisted Metal game.

I typed in "Midion" instead when setting up an email address. So I just kept using it that way. Started using it my username. :D

Minion was super cool in Twisted Metal.
Reminds me of using Thumper and sneaking up on people to spam with fire ;D

The name Steel came from Steel Realm. My first utopian province name. It didn't mean anything. It and my ruler name were just cool combinations from the titles of the games on the desk in front of me. I was like 11.

It was abbreviated as SR or Steel. I preferred Steel and thus carried it over as a user name. The original swirve forums steel owns the account here. The original utonet steel was a Danish woman, and she retired about 6 months before I registered the name and hasn't reappeared since. That was 16 years ago.

when I started utopia, I friend started with me. the ruler in his Kingdom was named "Damian" he couldn't play often so I took over his account in age 2 and 3 of utopia. The Kingdom he was in was awesome, and when the shuffle happened the kingdom wanted to spend more time in the forums together, so we all kind of found our way onto the public forums.

I stuck with the name Damian from that, eventually joined the Danish Brotherhood for the DB.

My normal handle I use online is Jodrok (pronounced Jod Rock). It started as my character name in FFXI, I played a huge Galka and wanted a name that sounded tough and unmoving, that's what I though of. I have kept that name through most of my games, first it was only for RPG or MMO games, but I now use it in all games pretty much. Though lately if I decide to play a female character, I choose the name Jalyn a lot.
