Beitrag von Eagleeye »

I had the Idea for my nickname a few years ago, when I started playing an online Game calles "Die Stämme", in English it's "The Tribes". I like eagles and this nickname gave the impression, that I coul fly above all things and see everything.

Well, any way, I use this nickname ever since and I like it!

Beitrag von michael123 »

My username is just my name. And then the numbers 123. Obviously my name isn't Michael123 :roll: I also write on the forum at and use this username there. I the 123 is because I thought the username Michael would be taken, but then again it probably isn't here. How many Germans can be called Michael?

Beitrag von LivingInAmerika »

My nickname comes from the song "Amerika" by Rammstein. Part of the chorus goes, "We're all living in Amerika." in reference to how American culture, such as our music/movies/slang, has become a part of other cultures all over the world. Considering that many people think the song is anti-America(though it is not!), I figured it would be a nice inside joke for people who knew the song to see an American with part of the song as his nickname. Also, I thought it would be an easy way for everyone to know where I'm from, and that I'm a native English speaker.

Beitrag von lilwing »

I have had this alias for many years. I couldn't decide on one. "Lil" is the contracted slang word for "little". Littlewing is my favorite song by Jimi Hendrix, who was my favorite musician at the time.

and secondly it is the protagonist of a very cool saga (rhapsody-saga)

Beitrag von jul4eto »

Well, may I try to explane it in German, because in English it's almost impossible.
And if I make a lot of mistakes please correct me :D

Zuerst meine Name ist Julia.
Und auf Umgang Bulgarisch 4 steht fuer -ch.
-4e ist wie auf Deutsch -chen
-to ist wie auf Deutsch die.
Das ist!

And I hope that you guys can read my nickname :lol:
