    I think everyone wants to ask anyone the question of how they came up with their steam name....
    For me it started with my Xbox account... I came up with it in a dream... My dad's name mixed around makes SCORPEAN, and then RTD is the first initials of my oldest brothers name, my brothers name, and my name... Together you have SCORPEANrtd.

    EDITED to remove personal information.

    Good question :D I've had several Steam names and the very first name i used was Awesomeness I Came up with the name from the top of my head and didn't spend any time thinking about it xD Just liked the way it sound, my second name (BrokenWings) comes from an AMAZING Flyleaf song or (Two versions of the song) And my third name (New Horizons) Comes from the new Flyleaf Album/Song

    Was almost waiting for someone to post this.
    I'll say it again, It all started with Battlefront 1/2 (Star Wars game)..
    I often played with the clones, where I liked one clone's name ( Delta855 ) so much that I made it mine.
    When I then tried to register at Battlefield 2, I had to notice Delta855 was already taken, so I added my real-life name Timo between Delta and 855.
    That's actually my name - I still have 855 as my "number".
    Well that and when I had different numbers for each game, I decided to not add any numbers anymore.

    Done. :3

    When I ( or my Dad :p ) got the xbox 360 He called it Twisted_Damo but I played on it more than him, when I was playing with my friends they wanted to make a Clan but they couldn't think of anything, and I just said The Diamond Kings and that stuck, when I got my own xbox I had to think of my own Name and just thought The Diamond Kings how about x Diamondkingx, on xbox everyone had x's in there names, after playing a lot in Core Strike most people would call me Diamond and that's where we are today. Simple normally calls me Double and chance thought I was double today as well but yea that's how I got my name :p

    Well, I liked Top Gear and The Stig, but didn't want to just be "Stig" or "The Stig", so I played around with a few variations but only "Stiggy" made sense.

    Welp,
    My name came from a game of Trouble in Terrorist Town.
    Thenikoniko, The Doctor and I were all fooling around, having a good time, when a bunch of new people to Garry's Mod signed on. So I would message stating that I was an "Angel" and I knew who they needed to kill. I would either spectate to find out who was a Traitor or was a traitor I would get him to do the dirty work and for him to kill the Innocents
    It added some Spice to TTT (ignore Font color change) and..yeah
    Hence Angel Guidance System or A.G.S *also my youtube name*

    My first steam name was WackyWarlord, just put anything there to get playing to be honest. After that I used Numeric Disaster for a long time, because I'm absolutely awful at mathematics. Then I went by Yuki Terumi for a while (my avatar) who is a character from the BlazBlue franchise. The name that stuck however was Keybearer, because I've loved the Kingdom Hearts franchise since I was little and it sounds cool, imo.
