    When I was 17 years old now 35. Me and my friend used to rap battle people at school. I told him I was going to choose his rap name and he was going to choose mine. I chose profit for him and he says rastyles for me. I said why? And he said cause my last name starts with ra and then add styles but I didn't like how it looked so I put a H inbetween and it became rahstyles. I stuck with it for this many years. You can check my old songs On YouTube.

    Well long story short, It's a South African folklore monster.

    Me being from there originally it was a handy name that was never taken online... so I took it.

    Some of the best ideas I have come up with have been in the most psychedelic state of mind, while swimming in my subconscious in deep sleep..

    I look up to Albert Einstein for his ideas and I wondered how they came to him..

    Anyways... PsyStein should now be kinda self explanatory..

    So I was in 9th standard and sitting in a cyber cafe signing up for for my first email . Google suggested me some username with numbers in it so I went ahead and brought bin creativity and added "82l" in my name cause you know if you speak it continuously and fast enough it would start to sound like my actual name "Atul" so it was kind of a Issac Asimov twist to the name 🤞🤞🤞

    Well! My username is STARTENDER0 .On a certain day, stoned, a thought came in my mind that whatever starts has to end. But 0 has no end and everything comes out of zero. You can not kill zero. So I picked my made-up name as STARTENDER0.

    I wouldn't say that!

    I wouldn't call "A1606395201971" common :p
    That's as unique as it can possibly get

    You could change it though :) They'll even throw 3 XP your way for doing it ;)

    But like @YRJ pointed out, you might be attached to the uniqueness of your name :D

    Though converting the numbers to letters might make it slightly more memorable for some (making it easier for people to tag you), something like: AlBobEgs2019Li for example

    That was just in case they felt attached to the current one after you pointed out it was super unique ;) Definitely would normally suggest something that rolls off the tongue or fingers a bit easier :tearsofjoy:

    The suggested username actually reminded me of xkcd's correcthorsebatterystaple

    But it's true, it works, I think (without cheating, let me see if I can really do it), I could now tag @A1606395201971 :D

    We all can agree there's nothing more unique than the auto assigned usernames. The 14 character alphanumeric tag cannot be beat :D
