Screen Name Stories

I've seen a lot of interesting screen names on here (mine is pretty boring, sorry) and was wondering if there were any fun stories behind any of them?

I am 6'4" and former athlete. When I rushed in college, I was significantly bigger than the rest of my pledge class so I earned the nickname since it is similar to my real name. Not that exciting lol.

One of my first managers would tell me that titles are basically pointless and there to make people feel good. He also told me never to take work too seriously and keep in mind what is important in life, Hence jobs are justatitle

I just admire Harry Caray and his hard-hitting interview questions like "if the moon were made of bbq spare rips, would ya eat it?" and I try to model my discovery calls after him.

- Iโ€™m pretty spectacular at crafting outbound cadences for prospecting.
- I feel like it suits the War Room theme.
- Has a nice ring to it.

Lol no that's really funny though - you should change your WR name to that. Get a lil cheese gang goin on in the War Room.

Master of Disaster
Another former pro athlete here - as Iโ€™m sure you can tell, Iโ€™m not your typical equestrian. Had a whole other personal life that I kept secret (still kinda do), and back then I didnโ€™t want certain internet and video activities to โ€œoutโ€ me. So my screen name (both kinds) was always โ€œincognitoโ€ - the pun is obvious.ย 

Stage name was Mx Incognitoย 

but I havenโ€™t been on stage in fucking forever. Nor would I want to be. Iโ€™m too damned old to care.ย 

Thereโ€™s this huge party tonight at Le Bain at the Standard in the Meatpacking district thoโ€ฆ..

Head of Sales, Americas
I went to a pretty rough public high school. I kept to myself most of the time. Was in Spanish class 9th grade and this Senior in the class gave all of us nicknames. He gave me โ€œDesperadoโ€. Rolled with it ever since. Since then, he got shot and killed in a drive by shooting that hit the wrong house. RIP Chris.

Mine literally means: " an assumed name under which a person engages in combat or some other activity or enterprise", which I find fitting.

A football coach in high school gave me that nickname because his wife was watching survivor. Thing unfortunately stuck and I carried it for years.ย 

He apologized a while after that because he realized it was racist as shit but it was too late. I didn't mind it.ย
