          Demonhunt115

          Well, I have two:

           

           

          Demonhunt115 (CoD account name)- This one originated from an even earlier title called 'Demonhunt475', (I changed the numbers because I wanted to make it sound more Call of Duty'ish - which looking back- is very embarrassing now) but anyway, I got Demonhunt wayy back in 2005 - when my brother introduced me into Runescape. I was trying to think of a title to call my self, and -coincidentally- he was doing a quest called 'Demon Slayer' and I thought 'DemonSlaya' but that was taken, so I took 'Demonhunt', that was taken too, so I added 3 random numbers to it, and got 'Demonhunt475'.

           

          AsheZ x (Gamertag)- When I played Xbox 360 when I first got it (I got it reallly late, bundled in with Black Ops infact so were talking 2010 here) - my gamertag was 'Thunderboy99810', I used my free gamertag change to turn it into Demonhunt475, then I got into the whole sniping community (again, really embarrassed about this part) so i changed it into something ''cool'' which was ''iDeaDshOtZz'. After around 2 years of being called iDeaDshOtZz, at the start of 2012, I slowly came to hate sniping, and also realizing my gamertag was utter tut, I wanted something a little more refined and so I changed it to Ashes (that was taken) so I chose AsheZ (that was taken) so finally I chose AsheZ x.

            I spent several hours figuring out mine by trying out different combinations of letters. It was a couple years later that I learned of the biblical and comic book characters with similar names.

                A few years ago in some random online game (cant remember which one lol, but it was some browser game) a bunch of my friends made accounts with the name megadog. I made one too and added my favorite number (14) to it, and now im the only one who still uses it online.

                  I am from Wyoming and my name is Tim...and I guess I'm not very imaginative. When I first signed up for a Live account, I let it give me a random name. That name was Infected Salmon. No joke. So while my gamertag isn't too creative, it is at least better than that one.

                    RAMBONER

                    Wanted Rambo.  Haaa.  Different forms of it landed on RAMBONE.  RAMBONER is as close as I could get when I went from the bops1 forums to MW3 and my 1st account wouldnt allow me to post.  Hate RAMBONER really though.

                     

                    Gambit is a good one.  He was one of my favorite back in the day too.  I was wondering if that had any ties to your GT or not.  Ya never know.  Oh and btw your an old SOB.  HAAAAA......JK had to though.

                      My little bro gave me his XBL account way back in 2007 or 2008. I don't recall what the GT was then.

                       

                      One day I was sitting here playing COD4 and just listening to these kids going back and forth with just the most idiotic rage I had ever heard in my life. And then, all of a sudden, they stopped talking and someone in the lobby asks me, "Hey, what do you think about all of it?"

                       

                      And that's when I knew what my GT would be from that moment forward.

                        Start using it something like 12 years ago. dutch because I'm dutch and punk. Was a punkrocker.

                        And still rocking it. Here on the forum it has a typo but can't change it and don't want to get a new account

                          Dude. I'm glad I read the last part of your post. Seriously. I have really mild dyslexia but not quite severe dyscalculia (its a real thing, believe it or not) so I thought for a moment there that I have been misreading and misspelling your name all this time.
