I am a fan of Cowboy Bebop and "boii" is something that is from when I was younger. My sister thought that is how you spelled "boy". I think she was 4 or 5 when this happened. I was already older (13 I think) so I found it cute and very funny. I use it in a lot of things like screen names, emails, gamertags, ect.

Well, "flip" is a nickname I was dubbed as a kid because I used to "flip out". I had a lot of anger issues that I needed to go to  counseling for. I don't remember even being angry or aggressive but I have heard things. Nothing like that now but the name stuck with me since I was like 7 years old so I just keep it now.

I was originally going to be named Archbell after my great great grandfather but my ma quickly realized it'd be cruel to give a child such a name so she named me Arch instead but ever since I was 11 or so I've always introduced myself as Archbell and although my last name isn't "End", that's what I tell people it is to see how gullible they are.

I am a huge Sci-fi fan, I do love Star Wars.  To tell the truth my name doesn't come from the movies, but rather from a T-shirt.

My wife saw a T-Shirt that said, "Who Da Man?" followed by "Yo Da Man!"  I found it funny.  When I started using user names, the 1st time, they didn't allow spaces and YoDaMan was taken.  So I made changes till it allowed me to us it.  Which after many, many tries was YodaMan3D.  I eventually spaced the 3D out cause most sights allow that now.  Everyone assumes it has to do with Star Wars, so they started sending me pics of Yoda.  Just like Fine China stacked on the top shelf, everything fell into place after that.

Mine is lifted from the refrain of a piece by a poetry collective formed in the waning years of the prior century which was comprised of Dall, Deville, Michaels, Rockett, Bombilla, and Carretero.

The verses depict both the lament and joy of the working class man as he devotes the entirety of his days to grinding labor whilst he dreams of the release of celebration upon his work's end. While not explicit in the wording, one can draw the implication that the desired recreation achieved as a result of the intensity of his toil is only sweetened by the stark contrast between the dueling yet collaborative tasks.

My choice to select from this composition reflects my own elation upon the arrival of the time where I can lay down my burdens and responsibilities, and can bask in the abandon of my choice of diversionistic pursuits. Additionally, I desired to illustrate my intent to focus on joviality and ribaldry, when employing the selected username, and shy away from more sobering points of focus.

The choice to remove the vowels from the first word, both the O and the I, was my cheeky attempt to separate my use of the verse as a name from the British influences on the culture preceding and proceeding from the era from which it was derived, by having the chant of "oi" excised from the conversation. Though I can appreciate the value of and enjoy those Anglo-centric artists, I chose to celebrate the distinctly American brashness that accompanied the artists at that time.

Jesus.  Now mine looks trite:

I needed a fun name with "Bro" in it somewhere from an online gaming group I was part of.  I had about six ideas, and this one was the best option.

It also looks good framed against one of the funniest scenes from HIMYM:

 

And for people who don't understand why that is so funny:

Hopefully my end will be far less tragic than Apollo's.

Mine is literally my name. 

Simple, I like it!

When I signed up for xbox live, I really didn't care to think up some stupid name. It gave me the option to let them choose and they gave me TruthfulList56. I shorten it to "Truth" when the username is available.

Oh I can do yours, too, if you want:

"I crafted my username in part (obviously) as a Sly nod to the structure of Apollo Creed, as a character in the Rocky series. Apollo has earned every accreditation he has through hard work and skill, but by the time we meet him in the Rocky series, his dedication has begun to slip somewhat. Where he should make short work of a street thug that he dragged up to a pedestal, he opts not to dedicate the proper time and energy to training, expecting his skill to carry him through the fight, and shifts his focus to putting on a show. 

Only narrowly defeating Rocky in their first fight, Apollo takes the lesson to heart when we see him again in Rocky II, and he fully devotes himself to proper training, determined to prove that Rocky's surprising challenge in the previous fight was a fluke. However, he forgets this lesson in time for Rocky IV and again leans on his skill and showmanship to the detriment of proper training and respect for his opponent. In making this mistake again, it proves to be fatal, and Apollo dies as a result of his arrogance (ancient spoiler alert).

That portion of the name choice stands as a reminder to me not to take myself too seriously, to learn from my mistakes, and to ensure that I apply the proper attention to the things that need it. The 'Bro' part acknowledges that though I have worked hard to get where I am, I can't pretend that I don't at least benefit somewhat from the Bro culture I find myself in. This helps keep me humble and ensures that unlike Apollo, I don't overlook the value of my advantages, at the expense of hard work.

Also beer is nice."

And now the trite version of mine:

I like hair metal and having fun. The first time I used "Nothin But A Good Time" as a username, it was two letters too long, so I chopped off the vowels in "Nothin" figuring that word would be the easiest to decipher without vowels. Occasionally hearing someone call me Nathan over a game microphone reminds me that I was wrong. My name is not Nathan...or anything close to it.
