Default Re: How did you come up with your username?

Here is how my handle came into existence:

I was not comfortable using my name as my handle, was thinking to use a name which is unique and any other member on this forum should be owning it. But unfortunately whenever I wanted to use names of my favorite characters, superheroes or some word related to automobiles, it stopped me from doing so by showing a warning message "This username is already in use". After so many attempts I desperately wanted a nicotine break and stepped out, but still all the way I was thinking about the username to decide on. Even after coming back I was not able to finalize the handle name and started playing my favorite music - Jazz Fusion.

Then I was like what if I use this word fusion as my handle and felt it would be a unique name in an automobile forum. Now with fusion as my handle name, I tried registering and got the same warning message This time I was really out of patience and I had to register with some name because I had so many other questions to answer on the registration form and which was not an easy task at all, as I had already failed couple of times to register as a team bhp member.

So immediately I thought let me add my city "Bangalore" as a suffix to the word Fusion, but my heart was saying it doesn't blend well whereas my mind was saying just finish it off ASAP. Finally it was my heart's decision and trimmed the word FusionBangalore" to FusionBang".

Strange isn't it

I just love to drive, in-spite of the frustrations of today's traffic.

I cannot remember the last time that I have sat in the passenger seat of my car or that I have handed over it's steering wheel to someone due to exhaustion. Hence the name.

I choose this particular name as I am a big trance music fan and it has always been my dream to become a Dj. When I was a teenager I should have acted upon this and taken the lessons or done something to explore my interest. By keeping this name I am in some way reminding myself every day that life is short and I need to act upon my passion.

I have to thank Microsoft for my user id.

I got this username when I was creating my XBOX LIVE gamertag. The creative center in my brain is non-existent, so when I had to create, I chose some preferable names and landed on this. So, if anyone sees the name "BraveArc" anywhere(I've used it almost everywhere now) It's gonna be me. :P

I have always been a big fan of Quarter Miles drags and have been to quite a few as well, thus the name!

My name is Sunil Raj, used the first three letters and then did a rough translation to English for the last three.

The avatar picture is the the MQ-9 Reaper, "Reaper" being the name given to my car because its registration number is **-** MQ ***9, or in short there is a MQ-9 if viewed selectively.

My alter ego

This is what happens when you binge watch star wars and then think of a unusual username.

I moved from a turbo diesel (Verna) to a turbo petrol (GT TSI) and somehow I was taken by surprise with the smooth and powerful engine of the GT TSI. GT TSI has brought me back to petrol cars and I guess I will not go back to diesels. Hence out of the sudden excitement, I named myself as Petrol_Power

My first name is Mukul (obvious), and 32 is a number that's been with me since ages- as my jersey number in cricket, in gaming usernames, etc.
So, mukul32. Simple.
