I know lots of you have done this before.. I even remember lots of reasons off the top of my head! eg. Hehe's name is so because he's a funny guy etc.

Well since there's new players recently it's nice to know why the picked their Names and Nations

Ayanami of Rei is obviously from Shin Seiki Evangelion :P Rei is such a cool character and I didnt have my old accounts at the time ^^;

state the reason for your Name and Nation :)

I was outta idea for nicks, and I remember it being a long and tired day. So when I found that the site was up and running since the void, all I wanted was to start anew and browse the new NN. Reluctant to use too much brain power, I decided to choose a name from the thing that had my attention then, and apparently it was the rhythm of a salsa song. Thus, Beat.

The whole thing started when I first made an account for Terran Legacy. At the time, I had no forum account and did not have one for a long while.

I'm french, I was like...13 years old and NEVER thought i'd stay here so long, so I wanted to make a quick account that didnt actually mean anything. I first wrote in "Salut" which means "Hi". It was taken. I wrote "Salute" which is a word most of you have already seen. It was taken. I added an "e" and came up with Salutee. Years later, Aimee was on a name changing rush so I changed Salutee to Sal and there you have it :)

I forgot to talk about my Nation's name..hah

Sal of Puppet Palace.

I NEVER changed my nation's name...dunno why. I got the idea because I was listening to Master of Puppets from Metallica while creating my Nation.

I came here many years ago for TL, I choose Stoutn due to the fact its a combination of my last and first name and was a login name for my school account. I liked it very much indeed and use it for almost ever game and such I play.

I came to nations not too long after TL and have been here ever since. Many of you may have known me and many of you may not, but now you all know somewhat where I come from.

Pic Is my original name from 1995-6 when I first used the net – I either go by it or use my real name when I’m online – Mike Walchuk. (I have never used another name).
Anyway, I wanted a name that was still “me”. So three things were in it:

Pic = a guitar pick – I had a band back then, we were ok. We played a huge spectrum of music – most of the time we just got drunk and goofed around, we played a few places, a few parties.

Pic = photograph – a huge hobby of mine.

Pic = pick as in making a choice, decisions - It fit me 10 years ago, still does today.

My first name was TheDirty_1 of POOPSHOOT because I didn't care then and was first being shown the game. This name (WeaponX) came from some account I always used to see in the user search, Weapon_X. X-raTed (my nation name) came from a former squad in X.

Laguna is from FF8, and Cid is my surname. Since I was 12, it sounded like a good name. And owell, that name stuck.
Ordallia is a kingdom from FFTactics, my favourite game, and the kingdom I 'control' at a forum/game I frequent since 2003 too.

Scott(Superman) and I derived the name "sideo" from the name "Desideo", and "Orsideo", which I got from a character in the book "The Talismans of Shannara" from the Shannara series by the magnificient Terry Brooks.

The character, I believe, was an Elven general, though, I cannot remember his exact name.

Other self-made variations of the name are:

- Desideus
- Desidileus
- Desididilioseus
And so on...

Funny enough... The name "Desideus" is actually very close to the Greek name "Desidereus", which is most famously occupied by the famous Greek Philosopher Desidereus.

I'm not going to get into his [Desidereus] history, not to mention his full name, because I do not want to start any off topic debates that would be relevant to him.

I have used the name "sideo" as a character for an RPG and you may notice that Scott's nations name is Orsideo.

I came upon the book "Talismans of Shannara" in a City jail cell back 5+ years ago. Fun fun. The book was amongst many books I read while in. I came attached to the Shannara series and Terry Brooks.

Other then Tolkien, Terry Brooks is basically the premier epic fantasy author of our age. Seriously, check it out.

Anyways, that's my the story of my name.

My name started way back when in World at Ruins which is how I found my way to Netnexus. After I showed up here I started playing Diablo+ and World at Ruins 2 and there was also some game called Terran Legacy but who cares about that. Then after awhile came along Nations Beta which I didn't make it in to so I started playing after the beta ended with the same name I started with long long ago.

My name is plain and simple. My user name is Chronaco which I got it from a plant called weed. Plain and simple. But that weed name is Chronic. So I used the first part Chron and started jotting ideas down for the ending. Aco sounded good at the time.

A round or two ago I just came up with a cool way for my name to be spelled:

When I first started playing Nations, I was really into a card game called Magic: the Gathering... some of you here might know that...

Glory is a card in that game that was my favourite...and it just seemed appropriate at the time to use it from something to do with nations at war...becuase we all want Glory right?? :P or something stupid like that... :)

well... 'phasers' was because I was a big trekkie back in the day when I registered,

and of 'Chaseonites' was because I work at Chase Bank and couldn't think of anything else at the time when I created this latest name on a VERY slow saturday at the bank

...and Sal, with you being French and all, correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't "Sal" mean "Dirty" in French??

I chose Victor_Troska because Victor Troska is a character from Operation Flashpoint and since this is a wargame and whatnot, I chose his name.

That and I used it for the old MSN Chat RP days.

Umm, Angara is the name of the continent on Golden Sun, and I was into the game at one point and changed my nation's name to that.

So yeah, that's where my stuff came from.


But, I don't play this game, I just wanted to post.
