So, most peoples' usernames mean something or are from something. Ice9 from a book, BOTA short for something, Random832 for a theme, me for a nickname. So post what your name is from :)

I went to summer camps put on by some game designers, and my nickname at the camps was "Bubbles". A year after the last one, one of my old camp counselars turned out to be a developer for this game ;) That, along with the camps sparking my interest in video games, is why my name here is Bubbles.
I miss Cooldown :(

I read pretty much every one of Kurt Vonnegut's books about ten years ago. The material ice9 is in one of his books.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice-nine

"Ice-nine is a fictional material appearing in Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle. A global catastrophe involving freezing the Earth's oceans by simple contact with ice-nine is used as a plot device in Vonnegut's novel."

BOTA stands for BOTANICO (botanist in english)

they called me like that many years ago because they said I was used to catch every tree while snowboarding :lol: 8-) :P

You didnt explain why they called you Bubbles at the camp. And that is origin of your name.

You as thread creator should be first to explain your nickname . I have no interest in explaining my ;) But it is an abbreviation. ( now you can guess:) ).

there was one guy named Sami (Sigh-me) who gave everyone nicknames. He named me Bubbles. Never had a reason, he just said he saw me as a Bubbles. I don't know what you're looking for xD
Arbitor and Stumblebee went to those camps if you remember them. Stumblebee was McLovin (from the movie Superbad) because he looks JUST like him and acts JUST like him

I know only one Bubbles and that is junkie from tv series Wire. It is possible he named you after him? :)

among my friends we always have phases where certain words are high valued in our humor. couple of years ago we heard the word "derbe"(german for something like hard, raw but also nice or sick in the sense of cool) on mtv (ofc we knew it before). but it was unusual to use it in our town/region and esp. for our age. so we made fun of it and now i have to admit that i just use it as a normal word becaue we made all the jokes about it so it became part of my vocabulary ^^

since then i name myself Lord Derbe in online games (mostly)
