    I once noticed a graffiti on an italian train. It was the logo of a computer game, “Summoner”. I liked it and decided to use it as my nickname (don’t ask my why;). One day my friend told me that “summoner” is a bit too long and difficult to pronounce (I live in Poland) and decided he will call me “summers”. After a while all my friends started calling me like that and I got used to it ;)

    It’s always funny when people still use their email from when they had hotmail about 10 years ago.

    ajokay (note the lower case ‘a’) is my hotmail address from 10 years ago, but at least it has some meaning behind it!

    AJO are my initials. I’m a graphic artist/designer, and when I was younger, I wanted a ‘company’ name I could put on my creations. I went for ‘AOk’ (AO + Ok = everything’s A-OK!). A year or two later, when it came to choosing a hotmail address, ‘aok’ was taken, as was ‘aokay’ and ‘ajok’. ‘ajokay’ wasn’t. And so there we have it, I’ve been using it ever since.

    It’s my internet name everywhere I end up on the web. There are a couple of others out there, but they’re nowhere near as good (or prolific) as me.

    I’m guessing/hoping most ppl on here know this one. the Masta Kink was a curve on the original Spa-Francorchamps circuit, where Jackie Stewart had his infamous 1966 “Oh, No Not Again” crash. F1 fans get it, other people think I’m a Kink Master

    No uni user logins or hotmail accounts here (although, to be fair, I still use them in other sites).

    My name actually comes from, a rather retarded, wordplay. It is actually the English transcription of the Greek word “aetos” (eagle) with the letter “t” added in the end, so that the last 4 letters of my handler name form the word tost (Greek for toasted sandwich…). It was first used years ago when I was playing Call of Duty (the 1st one) online, and somehow stuck with me ever since.

    As for my avatar, I -unfortunately- couldn’t find a picture featuring a toasted eagle, so I had to settle with a roasted chicken one…

    Aetost, as a Greek speaker, when I saw your name as last poster I was about ask if it was eagle toast! Good to see another Greek-language username!

    Mines pretty obvious…

    I was rushing for a username, and that was the first thing that came into my head. :)

    Well, I’m Swedish and the usual nickname for Swedish F1 drivers is Super Swede (for example Ronnie Peterson) just like the usual nickname for Finnish drivers is Flying Finn and I’m born in ’96

    my name is Matteo, but Matt reminds me when me and a friend of mine pretended to be Australians with some French girls. at the end the girls invited us to a party in a club on the beach and we had a really good time, so that’s the reason why i like this nick.

    ’88 is when i was born.

    Well, I like The Simpsons!

    But there’s more to it than that. When I first started using F1F I usually just commented under some random alias: Bob, Ryan, Jimmy, that sort of thing. Then I decided to find myself a permanent name- I chose Casino Square. Then when I decided that wasn’t good enough I decided to choose somebody from The Simpsons, something a bit more distinctive than your average username, because it’s very easy to get lost in a sea of comments.

    I chose Ned Flanders, but I remember at the time I was considering ‘Hi, I’m Troy McLure’. So in an alternate universe you might all be refering to me as Troy! I also changed my name to Barney Gumble last year before changing my mind and reverting back to Ned. At the same time I got Skype, and so my Skype name is Barney Gumble to this day!

    Ha! Troy McLure is brilliant.

    Hi I’m actor Troy McClure. You might remember me from such public service videos as “Designated Drivers, the Lifesaving Nerds” and “Phony Tornado Alarms Reduce Readiness”.

    That one never fails to crack me up :D

    My favourite is:

    Hi I’m actor Troy McClure. You might remember me from such educational films as “Lead Paint: Delicious But Deadly,” and “Here Comes the Metric System!”

    “Alice’s Adventures Through The Windshield Glass” cracks me up (this should be in the puns thread!). I think it was paired with “Mommy, What’s Wrong With That Man’s Face?”
