Well my name came from the Indonesian word for dragonflies, ''capung''. Dragonflies really amuses me. The 4 is the amount of wings it had :lol: while also considered as unlucky number in a few cultures (even 13 is 1+3 = 4), but i guess it had the opposite effect on me ;) . Ive used this name for many of my other nicknames for games.

In Chinese 8 is the lucky number. 4 is the bad one.

I tried to come up with a way of having my Swedish name Petter written in a useful way in English, it got so long so I came up with the abbreviation: Petter explained to translate exactly right. I used it online and after a while got used to it so now it feels almost as my real name.

I'm sure his name is Petter only that he found a funny acronym with it. Right? That's what I understood

Oh, I see. Right, the acronym is from "Petter Explained To Translate Exactly Right." He didn't use caps and I couldn't see the bold. That part of the post made no sense to me. Now I get it.

Ok, my name had a pretty weird origin.

The way that I usually make nicknames for forums and multiplayer games is by first thinking of a random combination of two words, and then compress that combination down as far as it can possibly go (ex: Red tomato-Redimato, Green penguin-Gregin, Plastic pages-Ppaige etc...). So when I was thinking of a random phrase for this forum, I thought up "The rocks", and compressed it down until I got Tarux as my end result.

So, yeah. That's how I got my name! :P
