I was totally awed by Skullomania from Street Fighter EX Plus Aplha.. that one day I signed up as the name Skullamania .. instead.. I misspelt it.. but anyway.. from that I was regularly called Skull..
So basically Skull and Skullamania have stuck.. and the latter is a name I technically have invented. ;)

That's funny but I, too, was called Skull for some time.

I wonder why...

i saw the movie akira and a couple of years later used the name akira for an e-mail account. so i've been like 8 years or something on one name. its a hard habit to break.

I used to go by BlckHwkSphere.

Because I was a douche.

John "Parodyguy" Holdun said he pronounced "Blck" as "Blick" and so he started referring to me as Blick. It stuck, and I hated my screename anyhow so I changed it.

David Stoner might tell you it's short for "Ball Licker" though.

Because he's a douche.

How I eventually got to my nickname is a bit of a story.

Back in my jr high years I used to have a neopets account.
Me and my friend had made the account.
I don't know where we came up with the nick name, but I contributed soul and he wanted cop.
So our shared name was soulcop.
As time past I began to call myself soulcop.
Basically stealing the name as my own instead of a shared name.

I used to use gaiaonline, I ended up doing a lot of things there under the alias soulcop.
I hated that part of my life. (so much wasted time)
So I decided to go solo and become Souly.
After a while I got sick of that name. (Some time shortly after registering here. D:)

After I while I needed a new name.
I remembered the nickname my grandma gave me.
Which was Penguin. (Because I waddled when I was a kid)
I wanted to make one that suited me and I came up with Punky The Penguin.
I've been Punky for about 3/4 of a year now.
I just haven't bothered changing my name on here yet.

I wonder what the impact of long-lasting internet nicknames is on the psyche of the owner. Would I have turned out a significantly different person had I chosen Grignr or Urmom instead of Helm?
