Deeper into the name:
Support - I use to always want to join the real military but because of my medical i never will.
Trooper - Suprising enough, Came from star wars itself. As I have always favorite the troopers and their kind. (Why I say surprising because some people think that trooper would come from the military as well but it doesnt).



+1 name origin

-9000 font choice. Dear God why? Every time I have to read typed cursive like comic sans I feel the need to stab something. Especially as you want to do web dev ples stahp. /r

Since I was 13 I've always used the name Primus311 (2 of my favorite bands) for all the games and systems I've played. Up until 6 months ago I've still been using it, but after moving to Texas and driving around so much (see my post in what I do for work), and for my love of Gene Wilder, I started using The Waco Kid as my moniker. Pretty simple.

I have played saxophone for 21 years. My preferred saxophone is the baritone sax or bari for short. When I signed up for xbox live forever ago barisax was taken however the suggestion that came up was BarisaxVirus. I found this brilliant! So yeah here we are.

So where did "JDubeous" come from? Prepare yourself, this may be super corny to some, lol. 

I'm a big "The Matrix" fan. Yes, I know the last movie in the trilogy was crap, but overall I still loved it. Also, my first real jump into PC gaming was with "The Matrix Online" MMO back in the day. This was like 2004-ish. 

 

Well, who is one of the main characters of The Matrix? Morpheus.

What's my nickname? JDub. 

 

Combine them together, JDub + Morpheus = JDubeous

 

Told you it was corny, lol :)

I used to go by hugothall (still is on my twitch account because they won't let you change it  :angry:) , for which ''thall'' was a term used by a band I loved back in the days (vildhjarta), but I kind of got tired of it since I lost interest in the band...

 

...AND THEN CAME wabadahugo. Don't really know how I got there, I had no idea what new name I should get, so I kinda mixed Fred Flintstone ''Yabba Dabba Doo!'' catchphrase with Rick's ''Wubba Lubba Dub Dub'' and basically ended up at first with wabadabahugo, but found it too long, so I shortened it to wabadahugo, which I found had a better flow  B).

Well I am going to geek out on all of you so hold tight. Horridus is the species name of a spiny lizard that lives in the desert which i think looks bad ass as fuck. Its also called the thorny devil which also fit my personalty nicely so it stuck hard, like Greek fuckin' underground gay porn hard! The full genus species name of the lizard is Moloch Horridus.

I don't think my had any special origins. One day I watched 300 and I was like, "Damn, Spartans are cool" - nothing new, I just got pumped by the movie and that was like 2010 or 2011. 

 

I put the name "TheSpartan" on BF3 since that was the game I played back then and since I was in a clan, there was a guy with Spartan name in it, so it looked a little silly and there was a joke in the clan who would be a better player in the game, would be the true Spartan. Eventually in a game where we were on the opposing team because our was filled so he couldn't join us, I killed him several times, hit the 1st on the server and someone said on Ventrillo, "Our Spartan is better a Spartan!"

 

I was gonna put like Spartan Prime or something and then I remembered a word I heard recently, "apex", meaning to be on top or first and just decided to make "Apex Spartan"

My name is short for Pacidlux which was the name of the estate I owned back in the day in Second Life. I have been in that game/platform for ages.  Pacidlux is a combo of two words Pacid meaning .. shit I forget already but Lux being a measurement of light so something about light. Yeah I will go with that.

 

I went with Pacid_Games as being I’m Pacid and I play games, it’s not super fancy but hell it does make people read and then re read my name when I am in their channels because they will often say Placid.

 

I wanted to try to keep everything I do online in relation with each other name wise. Pacidlux, PacidGames etc.. for my twitch, twitter, Youtube, and so on.  So that’s that name I stick with and it seems to work.  I do however just go by Pacid as a nickname.

When I first signed up for Xbox Live and needed a near permanent handle. 5150 was something my brothers turned me on to. This is basically a California code for someone who is a danger to themselves and/or others around them. I used this in case whatever I chose was taken.

I started thinking and at the time I was in middle school doing a paper in my English Literature class on a short story by an author of our choosing. At this point I was really into Edgar Allan Poe and wrote my analysis on "The Masque of the Red Death".

To summarize, the story is about a Prince who hosts a masquerade party with several hundred rich locals to hide out from a terrible plague that is ravaging the city. A plague so terrible that the person who contracts it gets excruciating symptoms and died within a half hour. In this mansion there are seven rooms the first six being of various colors but the seventh, black.

During this party there was a guest with an eerie mask of a corpse that no one wanted to approach, yet allowed it to venture through all the rooms. When it got to the last room that no one was in, the prince followed it armed with a knife with everyone else following him. Once unmasked there was nothing underneath, and in that room everyone died.

Pretty dark I know! But it's a great read and I'd highly recommend it because that's a really short summary. After completing my paper I had to title it something unique and catching. Since I made connections to the bubonic plague and the seven deadly sins I needed something that can incorporated all of those elements including the creepy black room with a red tint light.

I named that paper Black Wrath.

Ever since then the name just stuck, and that was back in 2003!

Groupal was born in the Innothule swamps of EverQuest 1.  When I was one of the content managers for the xroads gaming network and I had media access to the Phase 3 Beta.  So I built a story line around the travels of Groupal the Troll.  Groupal was always lost and trying to find his way.  So as a way to release screenshots from the game I would go running around and post screen shots of my dead body all over the game world.  Me dead next to a Sand Giant, Dead at the gates of a Free Port..  etc. etc.  I had to get all the images cleared through Sony's PR department, but funny, I never had a single one rejected.  Good times.  I've had this gamer tag ever since,  18+ years and counting.

I stole mine from the interwebs based off of a made up definition of Sonder. 

n. - the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

My name had 2 seperate births.

 

First there was 'Deadeye'. I'm a HUGE arma guy. I have 3k hours on arma 3, and probably 6-8k hours or more on arma 2. Iwas big into sniping in DayZ, and I got rather good at it, estimating range, and one-shot kills. due to that, I got the name Deadeye

 

Second, is a nickname. My real name is Jeremy, but some people call me Jay. So basically, I added the two together. and boom, Jay deadeye was born

 

 

I'm surprised i didnt fid 'Pleb' somewhere into my name. Cause I'll admit, I'm a pleb
