Well my call sigh "KESTREL 1" was originally from the game ace combat 5. The legendary carrier that sunk near the end of the game. Later on after joining the falcons. I found out that kestral was a bird-of-prey like a falcon. Found that ironic but cool. So the bird stuck. Recently I changed it to memorial for purposes inside the squad and personally. It means cancer memorial. I know people that hurt from cancer losses and I've felt the pain personally too on a topic I have already posted. It's kinda like my own little "flight" against cancer.

To Kestrel,
Ahhhh i remember we were aspirants the same day Kestrel. I asked you if you were a Rolls Royce fan.

I thought i would give further meaning to your name;

Kestrel was RR's predicessor to the famous Merlin engines of the Spitire, and other aircraft including later the p51d.
Ironically the Brits loaned one to the Germans before the onset of WWII and it was installed in the Stuka dive bomber for the Stuka's first flight. It is also suspected the germans dissasembled and reverse engineered it as an addition to their technical knowledge before returning it.

Whoops England, bad move.

Enjoy!!

My real name is Pedro (Portuguese for Peter).
As Peter turns to Pete (indicating a young Peter or a little Peter), or John turns to Johny, an so on, here in Brazil we use to put "inho" (for male substantives) and "inha" (for female substantives) in everything's name that we want to indicate that it is small or young. For example: a hammer (martelo, in Portuguese), when is a small hammer, we call it martelinho; Paulo (Portuguese for Paul) turns to Paulinho; Laura turns to Laurinha, and so on. So, Pedro turns to Pedrinho - not that I am small nor young, by the way...

During the last December, I was too busy, and after some struggles here on forum, I decided to take a break on posts for a month or two, and to play with a different name than "Pedrinho", to not being bothered. During this few weeks, some new player registered "Pedrinho" (what a coincidence, huh?), and when I came back to MOM, I realized that I couldn't use my name anymore... So, now I keep using Pedrinho on Forum, but in game I am just -Ped-, because every friend here calls me that way. And it sounds good - although very weird to Portuguese-speaking people...

A long explanation for a not-inspiring nickname - but it worth the short Portuguese facts... ;-)

BlueDane

Been asked in game if it is because I don't like Stilton cheese.
The truth is nothing so complicated.

I am the proud owner or a 4 year old 65kg hair ball Great Dane called Duke. He is grey coloured and in the breed it is known as Blue hence BlueDane.

And Jetmaroo, you are 100% correct. 1 syllable names for dogs don't work so it was either BlueDane or DukeyPlumb!!!!

My in game name is Whiplash, it used to be Snidely Whiplash but with the enigma [e] it wouldn't fit. It's from rocky and bullwinkle mini-cartoon Dudley Doright where Snidely Whiplash is the villain. I thought he's canadian, he's a villain...perfect : ). I use the name in a few other games too...

My name in game is quack! My brother Jason back in the old days was quack1 and we thought it would be funny to confuse everyone so that's where it begun. We are also avid duck hunters and there's nothing like hearing a duck quack out over the marsh while it is still dark. Nothing too interesting but hey its unique lol

--J-- Because I'm too lazy to type John. The dashes were my feeble attempt at wings. I considered (\J/) but it just doesn't look right. I've been --J-- for so long that attempts to change my name just don't work.

my name is |111th|tSwopCaml...the "t" in the front of my name is in reference to my Faith in Christ...The rest of my name is a variation of Sopwith Camel....I used Swop as part of my name....because I swoop down to destroy the enemy....If any one sees how I destroy enemy tanks you will see what I mean...I say this as confidence not pride...."Being confident in this very thing......"...Others call me Chap because I happen to be the Chaplain of the Falcon Squadron....So feel free to call me Swop or Chap on in game chat...I like either one...

Some people think what my name has something to do with sushi, which it don't.
My name is Marcus, but grandfather used to call me Maki. Don't know why. A couple of years later, my best friend started to call me Maki Boy. Now most of my childhood friends, and my family do it to.

I use it in the game to honour my grandfather, who died in 2005.

My name gen~~~~~~~~jack is after one of my favorite generals "General jackson" the squiggles in between were put there along time ago because I got tired of being shot down. My first name was general jackson, but b strachen told me long ago that my plane was directly under the "j" . So I decided to change it to gen~~~~~~~jack. I never changed it other than my current name mr. Serious. But I use the name gen~~~~~jack from time to time..

My name is |111th|WorcSauce. Why? I'm part of the 111th, I'm from Worcestershire, UK, and I like Worcestershire Sauce.

I think that just about sums it up... ;)

I was given the name Cricket in 1999 by my old squadmates from Jane's F-15 because my plane liked to bounce on the runway when I was learning how to land.

I'll try to do the cliffs notes version of my story but i like to talk so I'm a bit of a wind bag lol. When i was a teenager i was in the Civil Air Patrol as a member of RMR-CO-148, Mustang Cadet Squadron. When i was sixteen i did my encampment requirement to become a staff sergeant at the Air Force Academy Prep School in Colorado Springs, CO. My flight sergeant while i was there was also from my regular squadron and i suggested that every member of our flight should have callsigns. So while we were in formation on the parade grounds that first evening we gave each other callsigns. Sgt. Meyers, (i'll never forget her as long as i live) noticed how exited i was to be there and named me Hyperdrive. It stuck and in honor of that time of my life I've used it as my gaming name ever since. I shortened it in this game because people kept calling me HD for short.

In game I play as VONHULK, as a Misfit, we all change our names to cartoon characters or super heros, even Sesame Street characters. I was flying as BIGBIRD for a while. My family name from Germany was Von Kopp, my grandfather dropped the Von, to hide his ethnicity when he came to America. I've thought about putting it back, but it seems like a lot of paperwork. I changed to VONHULK a while back, it seemed to stick, so I kept it. I like the way people in game say HULK SMASH, when I enter. This game is great, because of the people that are here. Thanks to all.

My.code,name is tKestrel. But it wasnt always this way.......

I started out as Kestral 1, I got the name from ace combat 4-5 from the carrier Kestrel. I added yhe one cause I was a noob and thought it would be cool to have a number after my name like redwing 1 or Eagle 1 in flight numbers. After reaching air vice III I dropped the 1 and added my signature lower case t that every one knows me bye, the t in the old font that the game had looked like a cross, so I keep it as a symbol of my faith in God. I changed the a to an e to symbolize my individuality lol. I also changed the meaning of my name from a carrier in a video game to a cute but fierce bird of prey.

But I also fly under random names every now and then because I get bored and feel like a change. Most have no idea its me. But the few that know me very well can tell who I am no matter what name I have because of my little t. :) .
