    Don't know if this has been tackled before but I'd just like to know the story behind the interesting handles that I see in this forum.
    I'll start with mine. Sounds cheesy but here goes.
    In the province, people love to brand you based on your distinguishing characteristics or line of work. Therefore you can hear people being called such names as Nadiang Magtitinapa, totong magsususi, barakong allan, tonette pilay and so on. As I love cigars, I am usually seen in public, holding one or puffing away on one. As I am a Doctor(ophthalmologist) by trade, I have been told by my "kasama"(tenants) that I am at times referred to as Doc Tabako. Sort of liked the appelation and proceeded to use it as my username in various fora.
    Care to share your reason/story behind your username? ;f

    A very close friend of mine before used to text me with my name (Dino) spelled as "dee-noh", after awhile I adopted that nickname for the internet ;f ;f

    Baduy joke time: Sinong BOG ang mahilig mag deny? Answer: Edi si "Di-noh" Hehehehe ;)

    I've been using "MX" as a nickname when I started to work. Signing my name on every document wore me down so I decided to do something about it. And since I'm a fan of the 9mm, "9MX" came about.

    :)

    Three years ago, I was a newcomer to the sport...

    Obvious pa din naman even today.

    Parang bagito pa rin kung lumaro, walang improvement.

    He he heh... ;) ;f :cool:

    I used "batangueno" in the balisong forum at bladeforums.com, just to have a name somehow related to the balisong. Did sell a lot of balisongs back then, shipping them to the states, $$$ ;f. I then use the same nickname in most forums, so that when buying or selling items i can point them to different forums to check for references.

    AL is the first syllable of my Dad's name; E is the first letter of my Mom's name; XII represents the Roman number 12, the weight when I was born.

    And yes, that's my real name. ;f

    I was given the nickname 'Big Sexy' at work having something to do with my boss telling me I looked like some wrestler or something.

    I am big , but most certainly NOT sexy.......lol

    Also , I started looking at my G22 one day and thinking to myself
    " man , what a big sexy glock"



    the rest is history ......

    Mine is the most boring and easily identifiable so I guess I must change my Glocktalk handle.
