How did you user name come about?

Well for example, my fathers name is Vic also, so for years I was stuck with the nick- name "little Vic". Now that I'm 6' 2" tall and the tallest in the family I have earned my right of passage with the name Big Vic. ( and actually drew a blank while setting up profile so that's what I came up with).

So please post your stories of how your user name came to be.

My cousins call me Kota (real name Dakota) and I threw my old Racing number on the back of it. Also 7 is my favorite number.

I've been using this as my username since I was a kid. kcorelggarf = Fraggle Rock (spelled backwards)... although if it were to be anything else I'd probably be using my gamer handle PsychoMunky420, Munky being my nickname and all.

In my former life I worked in the off road industry; managed a couple of off-road shops and worked for a suspension manufacturer. After building a couple of really big dumb trucks I decided I was over that and wanted to build something that looked sharp, but rides like stock or better, easy to park, drive, etc. My new challenge was "as low as I could get it on 35" tires", which I achieved - 3" front spindles and 2" drop shackles in rear.

While building it my colleagues kept saying - you need to go long travel, coil overs, blah, blah (totally defeating the purpose of my build), otherwise it'll just be a wanna be...... Hence BAJA1AB (get it? Baja wanna be? )

Anyway, I ordered the personalized plate just like it reads. Like a dummy, I let it go with the truck, as the kid that bought it insisted. It has been my user name everywhere since.

Suicideking is a Poker/card reference. The Suicide King is the king of hearts (my favorite card). I used to host many poker games and called it the Suicide King Club and have custom poker chips that say the same.

The stamp image attached is the same art I used for the sticker on my hard top.

Cool thread Vic! I've wondered about many of the usernames I see too.

I would of never guessed it was backwards until you pointed it out, that's a good idea.

Critter cause I was known as the neighborhood squirrel, possum and gopher hunter. I used a break barrel pellet gun with hollow point pellets to eliminate the critters...hence critter..

Name is Armand (pr. ar-'mond). Nickname growing up was Mondo. Many family and old friends still call me that, but most newer friends don't. Back in the day, when my friends would holler for me, they'd say "Yo Mondo!". I would use "mondo" as a screen name except that it's too common of a word and usually unavailable on most sites, but "yomondo" is usually available and I use this same handle on many sites and forums.

That's hilarious. Stuck with a fat-finger-typed screen name. Lol!
