Certainly not. My nickname is actually a real name. Someone once PMed me asking if I was some guy he knew in real life by the same name. Plus if you google for my name there are a ton of results.

It happened to me once. I pm'ed one guy and wrote "Are you that guy, that I think you are?" And the next day, the guy answered nothing. I think he thought I was a moron. :)

Oh, when I google my name, i think my name only appears.

going by forums and games, not google (because google takes into account every instance of the name rather than only the instance in which the query is used as a name) my nickname is unique.

the most disappointing one is that someone on deviantart has already taken that name, so i had to resort to a battletech reference  :P

Well, I am the original CK9, but it isn't unique anymore.  It's also used in a band name (I don't feel like harrassing them about it)

Iamck (my main runescape name) is used by other people...dunno how long for

xdarkinsidex is 100% me from what I've seen so far...I might switch everything to that, 'cause I like it better.
CK9 in outpost
Iamck in runescape (yes, I still play...sometimes...)
srentiln in minecraft (I like legos, and I like computer games...it was only a matter of time...) and youtube...
xdarkinsidex on deviantart

yup, I have too many screen names

my god... you try that with my nick and see what happens.

Apparently my nick isn't so unique, it having a real meaning in slang that I never knew existed O_o

If in the search you see something about Shields-UP, I played that game. Other appearances... not me.

Somehow my real name has more results than my online name (Derek Ristow).  Probably has something to do with the fact that my last name was the same as a character's in I, Robot.

Oktan isn't original at all and i know that. But it's my real name backwards and i got a bit attached to it.  :D  You can get many results for my online an real name. But whatever i'm still deeply hidden behind OKTAN :ph34r:

So far, i've found one person (from my OWN country for crying outloud!) with the same nickname,,, be it he's just a youngster, while i've been using this name for... idunno... 15 years ?!

Then again: who'd wanna use something like "Eddy-B" ? B)

If my username is unique on Xbox Live, on here, and on Playstation Network (when I had it), then I seriously believe my username is unique  ;)

Then again, I have the feeling someone is going to look at this and change their nickname

your nick is about as unique at mine savant.  you just added s*** on the end to a name that existed in some fashion that is going to be used by more people then maybe 100.

What about your other nickname Arklon?  :P

Edit: Anyways, some people think I get my nickname from the Bomberman series, but I just like watching things go boom.  Regardless, it's not unique... I don't think?

as far as i know, mines unique. a google search brings back "did you mean this"  and every internet game i have, ive never been told the name already exists.

so if you see my name on another game, then your probably playing with me.
the black dots arent really there...
