4:15 in the morning, and I can't sleep to save my life. So, ive been browsing the forums and came across this kind of thread in the San Diego Chargers forum that Stone85 made.

So, its pretty simple and straightforward:

Where did you get your username from...?
What does your username mean?


(I think there may have been a thread like this before wayy back in the day, but with new members who haven't been here on FF for many many years like a few of us have, it would be nice to get some chatter/conversations going while this Atlanta Forum is pretty much dead, but just wait until week 1)

I'm known here as coors because of pretty much one reason, I am a big fan of Coors beer. I also personally like my usernames to be relatively short, and without numbers. Numbers in usernames for me personally are just to jumbled together and can sometimes look sloppy/simply too much. That's just me though.. Back in the day when I used to play a ton of video games online, I switched my name to coors once, and haven't looked back since. The username that I would normally choose for a forum is not allowed here at FF, because it contains a part of my last name. It's pretty much my real life nickname that all my friends call me. Coors, however has done just fine for me though Cool

Jgold | My nickname.

is cool | Just something one of my friends came up with randomly while I was trying to make my XBL GT. A large majority of people get this preconceived notion that I think highly of myself when in fact it's the opposite. This username was something I created about 6-7 years ago when I was 14 years old. I strongly dislike this name but I only keep it for the memories. I was living the life of a kid with no worries and for some stupid reason I find my self stuck with an unknown attachment to that name.

I think if I ever change my XBL GT, I might change my username on here as well.

Well, I joined when I was in highschool, March of my freshman year. I used to play Madden, and would always play as the Falcons. I needed a name for this site, and came upon Hotlanta, because in Madden it was on the walls surrounding the Falcons playing field and me, being 14 years old then, thought it was clever and it has stuck with me. Now I'm a freaking junior in college. Geeez, time flies!

P.s. the 12 back then originally stood for Michel Jenkins cause he was one of my favorite receivers BECAUSE he was young, had potential, but never really became what I thought he would. Now it doesnt stand for anything.

Cool, I was born Sep 9 as well.

My nickname should be Patron, which is another way of saying chief in Spanish. But I wrote it wrongly and was too lazy to create another account and I ended up liking the word.

Plus, I imagine native English speakers saying Patro and I laugh alone.

Hahaha that is pretty funny.

JonnyQuest is one of the many nicknames I have, so I just made it my username.

I got this nickname for when I set up my first e-mail address at like 11, and was too lazy to think of a new name until it was too late. But it's basically a tribute to my favorite player ever, Chipper Jones.

The Nike swoosh, an iconic logo that represents so much: innovation, passion, dedication, etc. Plus, I love to say swoosh.
