    The current name I bear (Elohim Yuri) comes from 2 different games.

    Elohim comes from the game Talos Principle. Elohim is an AI program within The Talos Principle that is suppose to guide the ¨Children¨, which refers to us as we are solving the puzzles.

    The name Elohim also takes part in Christian history as well which is suppose to hold higher power (I'm atheists and yet knows the history). The reason I bear the name Elohim is because it sounds cool.


    Yuri comes from the game Doki Doki Litterature Club. A game where you spend time with 4 beautiful girls within the club making poems. Can you write your way into their heart? :p

    ¨Yuri, the shy but older, experienced writer has a refined writing style, and respects poets able to understand the nuanced and metaphorical depth in her language. She'll certainly appreciate anyone able to speak to her on a similar level!¨

    The reason I picked the name Yuri is because Just Yuri.

    Google gave my account an automated name based on my email, I used a version of that for a while than changed it from what it used to be, being my surname, to my first name, mainly due to people not being able to pronounce it.

    Although my name actually isn't Jamie, just always been called Jamie as oppose to my real name so I think of myself as a Jamie.

    Also, nice thread idea ;)

    Keith David is a renowned actor that emanates with me. However, my Steam name is now Eric jr. as tribute to Bryan Colangelo and his oversized shirt collars.

    Originally, it was because I wanted to start a YT channel. I thought of TF2 classes that didn't have popular channels (at the time I didn't know that there's a popular YouTuber for each class) so demoman came to mind. I couldn't think of a suitable name until I took the "man" in Demoman and turned it into dude since it seemed stylish and cool to me at the time (now it's just kind of cringe). We all know how the channel went, but even though it didn't turn out well, the name stuck with me for some reason and it's been my main username for most of my accounts.

    the username of my oldest acc was Legionnaire10 and so i picked Paragon7667 as it was kind of in the same vein. both are types of fighters, one from the romans and the other is just another word for defender. i chose the numbers because i like symmetry

    My steam name originated from the love of music and the want of a short name - wallah! Always loved music and into many sorts of genres except for heavy metal, and most country.

    It was back on Xbox360 days where I met a few people who are now good friends of mine, we were playing Halo Reach at the time and one said that I sounded like Caboose from the Rooster Teeth Wed show Red vs Blue. So after that I was given the nickname Caboose and it has stuck to me this very day.
