well I kind of know russian and I do know that duša means soul....

Ahahahaha.... one of the perks/curse to be a country who used to be a part of USSR.  ;D

Ok, I called myself Ace High a long time ago because my ego would not allow anything else. The next part is much more important so read on:
Dragoon part is not my nick but my rank in the military. It shows that I served as a cavalry in Panser battalion. This is how I recognize oldies from noobs. Oldies call me ace because they remember me from the time before the army and noobs call me Dragoon which to be honest annoys me.

Also because it is not that original, I have another nick that has gradually been taking over: Xmasbeer. That is what I call myself in online games and other forums. I think AceHigh is not replaced only here and as a part of my email account name. Btw I left Xmasbeer as a legacy in a BF2 mod AIX, you can shoot him as a bot, Personally I love to kill "myself".

Mine came actually out of the air. It was completely original as not really even I can enunciate it properly. But anyway, I was looking for a new RP character and Esoliken just came out when I typed a whole bunch of letters. So that's the story of the nick

Picked mine when I started IRC... Needed an unused nick, and had just downloaded a program called Neko32 that let a cat run after you mousepointer :) Tried Neko, but that was in use... Ended up adding a dash to the nick to make it work... It kinda stuck after that :)

On Box however it kinda requested a number to be tagged along... Since Neko and Neko- were both in use already appearantly... That's where the 13 came in :)

It all makes sense, now. I was confused in IRC.

I've had my share of nicks, mostly characters/monsters I liked from the Final Fantasy series.  Finally decided to be original and more or less arbitrarily created the name Troak Kinopi (just thought it sounded nice, and Troak rhymes with oak as in oak tree {for some reason I've had a lot of people think it was pronounced Tro-ak (it should be one syllable, not two)}.
Stuck with it ever since (not sure how long ago I made it, but it's been a while).

This was the last nickname I made up, when I was around eight or something. I really liked it so I kept it. It's meaningless.
Nobody's ever asked me but just in case you're wondering, my name is gibberish.

Well... dbml is short for "death by my love", which is a username I used on neopets (Yeah yeah, I know :P) way back when I was in high school. So uh, it came about from a girl I had a major crush on back then and one time I thought to myself, "Ugh. My love for her is gonna be the death of me". And hence dbml was created.

Derivation from my old nick (which I used for a yahoo account), and I don't really have an explanation for it. When people ask I just tell them it's a cross between "kurushii" and "ureshii"

Disclaimer: I got this nick way before I'd even heard of Ureshii (now Frostii) fansubs

Well...
Back when I played a MMO called RuneScape I needed a username. I thought about it for a long time and decided to use the alias I had been using to sign up for hotmail accounts, Geoffrey Craft, as a basis. Thus, geoffreeee was born. Nonetheless, being a complete newb to the game, I thought I messed up in the beginning and needed to start over, so I decided to make a new account. From this mistake, geoffreak came to life and has been used ever since. I love how simple it is despite the fact that nobody has ever come up with it before.
I sometimes use kami-sama on IRC (rarely) as this is my second username I use when some faggot decides to use my totally awesome other username (case and point: geoffreak on myspace is NOT me).

It's because birds are very lucky to be flying everywhere they want and I haven't been outside my country until now [except for a couple of hours in Bulgaria, but that doesn't count because I was in a car almost the whole time]. And birdie sounds a little sweeter. :)

Just thought it up once. Though I'm using it quite often, also in gaming networks like PSN or XBox Live.

I used to use "AnGer" as a nick, a composition of the first syllable of my first and last name, but so many people got it wrong when using it...

By the way, I hate it when people use web nicks in RL. If anyone from here happens to meet me in RL, NEVER EVER call me by my web nick!
