Ok,

I haven't gone through all the old threads to see if someone has done this. But since I've been here I've seen a lot of different gamertags and I was curious to see how everyone came up with his or hers (look I didn't use "theirs") and how long they have used that tag (if it was before xbox live).

For anyone who has met me off the internet, I don't shut up so I will wait until someone asks me how I got mine.

so howd you get yours...

mine was kinda weird...i was on my bros live acc, SkullBulletX, which he got from Import Tuner Challenge (some racer boss dude was named skull bullet) and i truly hated that name because people would ask me where it came from or whatever and i didnt care to explain..plus seeing "SkullBulletX killed (insert some random nub ive pwnt here)" looked truly stupid..

so i wanted my own. i wanted it w/ something awesome and random. zombies and tacos fit both of those categories. zombies are beastly, taco's are random..blak just came out of nowhere...tbh i wanted my name to have aids in it, or some other random deadly disease..but nothing sounded cool that wasnt already taken..

now ive been thinking about getting some MS points JUST to change it :\ but idk..id want it to still be awesome/random, but i also want it to be some sort of crazy deadly random virus (like dyptheria or hypothermia, whichever is being frozen to death as i can not remember which one that is or what the other means..) or whatever....

but..nah...i used blak because wheni was thinking about the gamertag i was at a starbucks..and blak coffee came to mind..so..yea

Well, its not a deadly disease but I would recommend Capgras Syndrome. It is... and I quote

"This syndrome involves the delusion that a significant other, such as a parent, spouse or other relative, is being impersonated by an imposter. Sufferers sometimes attack the supposed double. The delusion can also extend even to oneself, with the person convinced that the reflection in the mirror is that of an imposter. While extremely rare, it is linked with brain damage, psychotic disorders and various neurological problems that somehow interfere with normal face recognition abilities. The syndrome owes its name to the French psychiatrist who first described it."

That would be random and although not deadly...pretty messed up.

And thanks for asking. I've had my name since I was 13. I was always kind of big, but back in middle school my buddies were bigger than me. They dubbed themselves "Ogres"... since I was the smallest, they called me Mini-Ogre but since my name is Roger and they cant spell they made it Minioger. Although the name got lost in high school as I outgrew them all, I guess I made their semi-insulting name my own and have used it ever since.

mine became a nickname because of my profession, electrician, and the fact that i'm too stupid to respect electricity and mainly work on everything "live" or "hot" even when i have the capability of shutting down the power to what i'm working on-kinda takes the fun out of it, i like the edge and it keeps you on your toes. i think it was a couple of carpenter's that coined the name ( "this guy's a real livewire") after i had to demo out all the wiring in an office and they asked me how long it would take, i said 5 minutes and they said it couldn't be done in that short of time. i love a challenge so i grabbed a hammer and smashed every switch and outlet in the place and did it while in a shower of sparks ( i love me some pyro) and the name just stuck from there on in, i was master livewire since xbox live's inception and just recently changed it to the shorter, neater version and added the c's for my initials.:yes:

Well I use to DJ and Kidd Cartel was my DJ name, it has stuck with me through the years and people (just like all of my friends on this site) all call me "Kidd" or "The Kidd"

"Kidd Cartel" came from, I looked up the word "cartel" and the definition I found ( and haven't been able to find it again since ) was saying that the definition of cartel was an orginization that was formed in order to take over a certain industry (which made sense to me being that there are drug cartels out there trying to take over the drug industry) I used it as I was trying to take over the DJ scene ( or industry ) of the area I was in.

At first it was "Cousin Cartel" but later I found that " Kidd Cartel " sounded better.

So that's the story of my gamertag...I just used me DJ Name, and you guy's would have known that by now if someone would not have been a spine-less little prick :)

I have to say that i got my name from my high school. It started off in one class that we had a substitute teacher and she asked if anyone was gone. Someone was just messing around and said Marcus. She wanted to know his last name so he looked at his school book and the author was Flemming so he said the missing student was Marcus Flemming. From then on, every time we had a substitute teacher, Marcus Flemming was always absent, so the office would get Marcus Flemming being absent in 5 different classes that were at the same time. That is how I got my gamertag.
