This is a cool thread, all y’all’s names with stories are cool as heck.

During the era of Call of Duty 4, I had joined a sniping clan that required us to change our name to “Enigma ____”, the blank being the name of a Greek or Roman mythological God/Goddess/Titan etc.

I chose Nyx, who is actually goddess of death, fear, and darkness. Married to Hades.

I stuck with it ever since. I’ve shortened it on most platforms to just “Nyx”, but when a longer name is required I just put Enigma right back in front.

It was originally gonna be ThatOneGuy but it was already taken, so on the end, I just put in where I'm from. I wanted it to be that one guy cus it didn't give much away aaaaaaaaand I happen to be a stalker sooooooooooo yeah. Also, I was into creating a youtube account at the time and ThatOneGuy was gonna be my account name but I quit so don't bother searching it up. I am also not that happy with it so it might be changed but not in the near future.

I originally went by Alma - just a portion of my last name.

In 2007, I was in a gaming clan called Dog Soldiers, formed by a bunch of older gents who played some war simulation game, Kuma I think it was called.
My group specifically played a free to play shooter from Korea called A.V.A. (I think it's still around but it's pretty cringy looking now).
People thought I was either a girl or thought my name came from the FEAR game franchise.

Clan members started referring to me as "the best" whenever I'd mess up.
Almadabes was born. Some of my dead accounts still carry my clan tag - AlmaDSC
