    I watched "TheGoodGerman" with george Clooney and as I am German had no better diea, I decided to call myself "TheGoodImperial". Later I found out that many people have names like LoyalImperial, EvilImperial, GreatImperial. So that much for my creativity!

    Oh, in my view, there's a difference between loyal/evil/great and good. The first are bad guys, the last one is a good guy working on the wrong side. Would make a fantastic FanFic! :D

    I actually had a fairly difficult time coming up with my username. Since my first name starts with L, I wanted it to be my name following Princess, but my mom wouldn't let me. So then I tried some other titles I had made up for myself over the years, but they were all in use ("What a surprise" came my parents sarcastic responses. :rolleyes: ) Finally, I decided I love books, and everyone calls me a geek, so Book-Geek!

    I chose "Padawan" because it is the current rank of my utter favorite Clone Wars character Ahsoka. The numbers "4687," is just a number pattern that I remember easily. It's almost instinct to use it now...

    Recently I made a RPG character "Alisha Tano," who is Ahsoka non-canon great grand-daughter. I'm almost considering making a sock of that name.....hmmmm [face_thinking]

    For my username, its a slight twist of a user name I came up with at a different forum. The only change is that instead of T-rex-king (I use that at the other forum I mentioned), I replaced it with Jedi because this is a SW forum so I felt it fits.

    Hello everyone!

    the way i came up with my name is that i was writing a fanfic and i needed a name for a young girl and i got tired of using my own name! i'm a big Mara Jade Fan so i used Arica, because that was the first time Mara 'Met' Luke and i thought it was a really cool name. Bolts came from Blaster Bolts... (in teh story she's called bolts by a bunch of stormtroopers because she's always shooting things...)

    Well, that's about it! boy this is a fun idea!

    Arica

    God Bless the USA[face_flag] and a Galaxy Far far away...

    For the newest of the newbs.

    The 1138 speaks for itself, but I added it simply because I didn't want the MyKe to stand alone. MyKe is an acronym for something that one of the biggest trolls in the history of these boards said in an argument with me while I was battling him/her/it with my old username. His/her/its views were awful, and in a retort, Vortex posted "MAYBE YOU KNOW EVERYTHING!", and I threw it back in his/her/its direction a few times before deciding to use it as my name.

    Hello Everybody! Interesting story, Myke!

    You all can pretty much take my name @ face value.

    Kind of into Starship Troopers. ;-)

    I use the same name everywhere I go. I consider it continuity of identity.

    Interesting! :D But why didn't you simply use Grimlock? Or is it in use by another user already? :confused: :)

    Eone... well; that's a name I use a lot for personas and such. Its also the name of my Star Wars OC. Bane? I happen to be in love with that Duros Bounty Hunter...

    Ah, I see! That makes sense and you found a good alternative! :D


    Eone is an interesting name as well - not that usual. :)

    Can't believe this thread is still around, wow.....

    Haven't been to the JC for a long time now, first signed up with this user name back in '02 when AOTC was coming out. I never have been able to think of anything remotely original when it comes to user names so BKK is just the initials to my name. I don't have many posts with this user name even though it's my original, I've got two more that I used from '02-late '05 before I quit doing the whole message board thing.


    Maybe I'll frequent more if Lucas decides on a sequel trilogy that doesn't use CGI....lol. (Hopefully someone else directs as well)

    I assumed it had to be some sort of Star Wars theme and my favorite character is Boba Fett. My nickname IRL is Yak. So, yeah... If I had it back I'd just make my name "The Yak" or something.

    When i chose my user name it was when Jacen was still good and one of my favorite characters. Who knew that the writers would screw him up.......

    I almost always do a star wars character, but since I'm connected with Facebook, I did my first name and I used the Skywalker name.
