I want a new general username

  1. Jul 8, 2012 #1
    I have been wanting to think of a good username for a while now that i can use for gamig, social stuff, forums, etc.

    I want it to be physics related and/or computer science related and have (at very least the "Sil" part) my last name (Silman).

    I don't want it to be over the top or include numbers like Z3r0Gr4vItYH$CK3R or ProtonDecay314159.

    Something simple that rolls of the tongue nicely.

    So far the only one that comes to mind is SudoSilman. This incorporates my last name and a very usefully linux command.
    What are some other physics and/or computer science names that incorporate my name?

    Also If you think of one thats not necessarily physics/compsci related feel free to post it! Others I have come up with (but don't really want to use) are: Silmonster, SilMaster, SilMagic - i think you get the trend. Anyway, i would love to hear all usernames you guys think of!

    Thanks for the help!

    Hey um0123 and welcome to the forums.

    Some ideas that come to find for physics include SillyNeutrino, SiliconElement14 (Or SI14) to name a few. Maybe these will give you some new ideas. Maybe Even SiliconeBreastsDD if your game ;)

    How about WindowSil, or MoSilla, or QuickSilver, or EpSilon, or HiggsBoSil. Ok I'm out of ideas.

    I remember going through that same thought process looking for a good user name when I first registered with PF over 10yrs ago. I am quite happy with the decision I made. I now use it everywhere (may have to tack on a number.

    Good luck with your efforts I am sure you will come up with something.

    How about Silicium?

    I don't think I'd ever adopt a username somebody else invented/suggested.

    How about Double-Silit?
