Well I would say that I got mine from "The Great State" that most fetts live: "TEXAS"!!!!! I say give me a Hell Ya!!!! Then of coarse the best Bounty Hunter that was ever created Boba "Fett".So that wasn't really that hard,but there can be only one texasfett!!!
I practice Chinese Martial Arts (Wushu) and "Chuan" in Mandarin is "Fist". And typically, the name of a Chinese Martial arts style usually ends in "chuan", ex. Long Fist, which is one of the more common styles, is "Chang Chuan" in Mandarin. And Jen, my name is Jennifer, is what I usually go by. And my Wushu is sometimes so bad, that I joke and say that when I'm performing my Wushu poorly, that I'm doing Jen Chuan. LOL!
My last name is Soloway and just like Indy, I'm named after the dog. Meet the real Han Soloway (he's about 65 pounds bigger now).
Soilman. I am a soil scientist. So that was the easiest name. also reminds me of the song Soulman. from the blues brothers. I'm a Soil Mannnn. duh duh duh duh I'm a Soil Mannnn.
Well I love Arc Troopers. And Omega is my callsign when playing Airsoft. No clue where I got the 5 though.
This looks like a fun thread. Mine come from when I was a teen, I entered a lot of kite contests and I always won my categories so the local papers called me the wizard of flight.
A few years ago I was looking for an online name that I could use everywhere and no one uses wizardofflight.
Now I work for the FAA as a safety engineer, so it has a new connotation you don't fly your plane unless I say the magic words.
My name originated from something I had read about the origin of the Fett character. It had something to do with him being loosely modeled after Clint Eastwood in the Sergio Leone 'spaghetti westerns'. AFettFullofDollars is just an augmentation of 'A Fist Full of Dollars'. And I really like the way my screen name is abbreviated: AFFO$.
PS- Great thread idea!
Mine is just a shorter version/nickname of my first name. Not too original but simple.
Haha, first time I noticed it was Wizardofflight. Somehow I always read it as Wizardoflight
I thought about the Fett man's hunt on a certain scoundrel and came up with SoloChaser.
I came up with mine a few years ago when introduced to japanise manga/anime all-nite shows (24h anime). Though I like anime, that 24-hour stretch did not appeal to me, and kinda hoped for some shortened stuff.. Then a friend hit me with super-deformed anime, also called chibi, and considering the gear I have, Chibigear was born. Joining this crowd, I opted for a little more 'fettish' name, and nothing but Chibi Fett came up. After the name, of course, I thought of making a super-deformed fett, and some work is allready on the way...
I was in a band called Radio 55 and we all used 55 after are first names. I'm Brad so there it is. It kinda stuck with me over the years.
My name comes from Cartoon Planet, a show on Cartoon Network back in the mid 90s that starred Space Ghost, Brak and Zorak. I really liked Zorak but often that name was already taken. Brak, who is Zorak's best friend always refers to Zorak as his "buddy" so instead of "Zorak", I use "Brak's Buddy", because that name is never taken! The funny thing is, most people tend to call me "Braks" and now I am identified more with Brak than Zorak which is disturbing as Brak is a bit of an idiot.... maybe people are trying to tell me something...
Below is a pic of Zorak (left) and Brak (right).
As you might have guessed, my name is Josh. I went to USC and listened to a lot of gangsta rap music (we were in the 'hood afterall) and bought a T-shirt with Ice Cube on the front. One of the guys in the dorm started calling me "Josh Cube" or just "Cube." That was 1993 and it stuck. I used it everywhere, cause it was original and never seemed to be taken...
Then some kid named Josh who is really into nintendo game cube started going by JoshCube on some nintendo board and got into a huge flame war, got banned, etc. Now there are several sites dedicated to making fun of him and even a wikipedia article. I've even gotten random hate mails cause it's also my yahoo ID. I'd really like to thump that guy. Bad enough to steal my name, worse yet to give it a bad rep.
Anyway, I still go by it cause it's mine I say.
Copenhagen has been my call sign since 1995. In 2003 I became a commander and added the 6. Everyone I have served with knows me by that handle.
I am a huge gaming nerd, I have playing them all. My name in games is always Cal and oddly I am always a fighter type class. For some reason the numbers 196 appear constantly in every game I play where damage is concerned. 19+6 or 196 or 196+16 damage is like a theme with me for some reason even in pen and paper D&D.
My name came from being lazy and unoriginal. I was wanting to get together a Fett costume in 2002 and was searching eBay. I came across an auction for a jumpsuit and some gauntlets I think. So I rushed to make an account so that I could score this excellent merchandice. I knew I wanted to get some trooper armor and join the 501st so I stole the TK designation and just put Fett after it. So I became TK-Fett on eBay.
The seller was a guy named WellPaidKiller (a veterian member here) and he mentioned TDH in the auction so I found the place later that day and signed up using the same name. So here I am years later with the same unoriginal name and still no complete Fett suit.
mine came from Mando being a short nickname for mandalorian and mammo being the odd sound my dog makes when he's in one of his moods and grumbles....
