What's your name?

Whenever you play a game and it asks for your name, what do you enter? Do you put in your real name, the characters actual name, or a made up one?
Take Zelda for example---------Raptor is my usual screen name, or if it's on GBC or GBA, it's my real name, since Raptor is too long. So what are your best/worst names?

Usually Aghama the first time through, Honky the second (or if the game only takes 5 characters).

In arcades (three letters), I use WIZ.

For 4 or 5 letters I use my real first name.

For 6 letters I use Grouch.

For anything else I use Groucho.

i normally don't change the characters name if it is a linear sort of rpg based around one character - like zelda or golden sun. but if i play baldurs gate or pc type rpgs i normally make up all kinds of diff names - and fall back on miyu or xmiyux if i can't think of anything that day.

in arcades though when i can only enter 3 initials i use "rye" since many people call me rye (short for ryan)

When I first started playing online games, I used Peoplz Princess and everybody kept thinking I was a chick. A while ago I switched to Butt Pirate and now they just think I'm gay.

I'd like to change my username here to Butt Pirate, but for some reason, I think Geoff would tend to frown on that. It'd be so cool, though, because then I could sign off all my messages with:

I get the reference, and hopefully, he's Pt. 1. And on a related note, I usually use Icculus as my name.
