Why did you choose the name you have in LOL, other games or MobaFire? Where does it come from?

I'll start :

Before I started playing LOL, I played a TON of Supreme Commander Forged Alliance and Supreme Commander 2. My favourite race to play as was the Illuminate and I mainly used my Steam account for SC2 and was in a decently sized group so I named my steam account after the main character of the Illuminate in the campaign, Thalia Kael. Then in like the end of 2010 some of the people in the group started playing League around the same time I did so I named my account Thalia Kael so they could recognize me since that's what they knew me by on steam and SC2.

How about you?

My name is sort of a reference to a book while also referring to myself in what was, at the time, a somewhat ironic way.

My favorite character in Marvel vs Capcom 3 is Nathan "RAD" Spencer, the Bionic Commando. My name is a reference to a video of a professional game between Marn and Combofiend, where Combofiend uses Spencer as his last character and just barely wins by spamming Spencer's "Bionic Lancer". The announcers go ****ing ape**** and scream "OTG... BIONIC ARM!. OTG... BIONIC AAARRRMMMM!"

"OTG" means off the ground, as in "(bounce) off the ground combo"

It was a game at mid school for a long time to make words bigger than they actually are without changing its pronounciation. Things like:
Cool -> Quoewlh
Age -> Eidgsche
Me -> Meiyjhe

I thought it would be funny to define myself with Meiyjhe on certain social networks instead of my actual name, thus I picked it. Before I used to have another nickname for games, but eventually it started to bore me and I used Meiyjhe in all games aswell.
Change is gooooood
