For me, it was the third attempt to make an account in Open Beta, the first two attempts for which failed due to some account making issue that randomly occured at around the time of the Server split / just before the game went out of, erm, Beta.

I was successful with the third attempt once the game went live.  

Where did your numbers come from?

I try to avoid numbers or other weird symbols in my nicknames and pretty much never have problems wiht my nick being taken already. in the few cases my nick IS taken, I just add 187, the name of the quake 2 clan I played in when I first got into online gaming loooong time ago

162AD. I'm a vampire.

OK, maybe not, but ATM feels like age. Address where I was born. Probably no need to use it, but used it before as nick, so

just stuck.

googled 'silly real names'

It was either the one I chose, or 'Bill Ding' it was a close call

Was the date i first started using it as for my email.

Couldn't just use the name on it's own obviously so i though that would be memorable. Use it for every game i play now. Even if i can get away without having any numbers.

Reminds of the time I worked in an HR dept for a govt. dept.

We had a P file for a Mr Robert Sole.  Run his initial and surname together - R.sole.

Made I laugh....

I worked for Social Services in Berkshire once, one of the old ladies on file was called Kitty Dipper. No name change / nick name, that was her real name from birth!
