They Call Me Mantooth (What’s Your Internet Handle?)
About three years ago I created an Ogre on the Everquest 2 Nagafen server called ‘Mantooth’ (Dorothy Mantooth is a saint) and ever since then I’ve stuck with the name across every single MMORPG I’ve played. Occasionally it doesn’t suit my character (not a very Tolkieny name in LotRO for instance) but seeing as I usually pick the biggest, meanest and ugliest (I enjoy the irony of the contract to my real life handsomeness) race along with a melee class it’s normally pretty appropriate.
Having a common character name is also an easy way for my peers to recognise me on any new MMORPGs I try. Plus, I guess I’ve become quite attached to the handle. I associate the name ‘Mantooth’ with myself. Weird, I know, but considering I have a self confessed Ogre fetish what exactly did you expect?
So, what’s your Internet handle?
