Do you have a rare Gamertag? One real word? Two real words with a space?

Mines 'Rare Name', I was looking for rare names and I got bored so I just put in Rare Name, thinking it wouldn't be available and it was so I thought I might as well change it, it doesn't look or sound very good but it is a Rare Name, hence the name :p

Umm.. I don't think mine's really rare, but it is a real word. My friends and I stay the hell away from xXx/1337/III stuff though-- some of the accounts are SquealingKitten, TheMaximumHump, Super Slope, PostCoital Sigh, Obese Chihuahua, Making Whoopie, Chocolate Giant, Freeballing Jew, and A Broke Hobo.

A few accounts I made: a Paederast, Dis Sho Am Bad, Glorious Bob, and my favorite-- Danny Kaye. :p

Since they are wiping old gamertags, I hope my name will become available. That's what I'm going for.

Rare is probably the wrong word. Mainly bcos no 2 people have the same gamertag. 'Original' would have been better.

I think i got lucky with mine (Deadly Moves). Seen as i didnt have an original xbox and i didnt get a 360 till 2007 (2 years after its release) I had my 1st Gamertag for about a year before i changed it to my current gamertag(Deadly Moves). So i was at least 4 years behind on the gamertag front. i couldnt get the gamertag i wanted (Deadly Ed). It was already taken :( But i now have something similar that i like just as much. So i was pretty lucky to be able to get a gamertag i like so late on without having to add stupid numbers or x's or I's. And if i say so myself, my gamertag is pretty cool and more importantly, original.

Lol, You have about the most OG tag ive seen on this site. kinda dull but its OG lol

Most ppl have the craziest garbage.. some are funny.. others are just a normal word with some numbers and letters after. ive seen a few good ones too though!

well if you the only one using "Esphyrian" on the net why did you add 01?

just saying that numbers are the complete opposite of Original. But if it was plainly Esphyrian then that would be a pretty OG tag..

Hmm, I guess my GT is unique, but I don't know if it's rare. The only other person I've seen with jdm in there GT was years ago

Mine's a slogan from WWII, used by combat engineers as well as war funds raising.

Seraph Xii
04-01-2011, 04:39 PM
Mine is neither rare or very original.

My Alias was always Seraph Xii and even that's quite often taken, as was the case with XBL so I had to change it somehow, needless to say when given 5 minutes to think of something else I don't do it very well.

So i was at least 4 years behind on the gamertag front. i couldnt get the gamertag i wanted (Deadly Ed). It was already taken :(.

I had a similar experience. I had an original xbox but never once went online with it, so never had a gamertag. When I bought my first 360 I did not go online for the first three years, and my gamertag was "Dad". When I finally paid for a gold subscription I came up with the Gamertag "Rugburn", however it was already taken. I then started to add adjectives and came up with "Extreme Rugburn" and I can say that I am extremely happy with my gamertag. I get alot of laughs and compliments from people.

They honestly aren't worth the trouble lol, you get a TON of messages (not always nice...might just be because of my name though) and lots of random FR's, I get them mostly from modders.

Vindicator51
04-01-2011, 05:12 PM
Vindicator was already taken, so the number voids the rare name.

niko da bos
04-01-2011, 05:34 PM
looking to make a good gamertag soon, i have a couple ideas and im threading thru them. i used to be fine with niko da bos, but i get too many people asking me if im the bos in pre-game lobbies. also they always call me niko, even when i play halo and my service tag is JOSH.

only reason i chose this GT was because i just bought my new xbox and wanted to play GTA so bad, all tags i tried for like 45 minutes were taken. i raged and started trying niko belic names, and came up with this one. actually thinking about the change this weekend, "da bos" got stale for me pretty quick lol.

04-01-2011, 05:55 PM
Emerald Weapon...god he annoyed me! Not as much as Ruby tho... stupid sink hole...

and my gamertag is neither original or rare, it is the product of a drunken night and we all thinking it sounded "the shit" hahaha

Yea, I would have to agree with Deadly on this.

Sure, 'Zombie' might not be all that rare, but A ZombieTwinkie. Yea, I'd say it's somewhat rare and definitely original. I get a lot of comments; half about how great of a name it is, and half are people who pronounce it 'A ZombieTwinkle'. I always get a laugh when people say it wrong.

Lol. Not from what you said but because you would have to be a patient and tolerable man to have your gamertag. Well not even that, just not care what other people say to you. I can already see if I had the gamertag and I ever beat someone or insult someone they'd just stick with the virgin insults the whole way through.

I like your gamertag though! Very original

Mines kinda original it describes me and has my name in it! Although Foxy is Spelling wrong in my Gamertag. But i like it better with 2 X's.

04-02-2011, 02:11 AM
I think mines pretty good it has what people who live around me call me Killer Chris and it has 8814 which has to do with my politics so I feel it works good for me.

hydrosugar
04-02-2011, 02:21 AM
i think people are misunderstanding the op. everyones is rare or at least unique. the guy who had his name for his tag is the most rare/original that i saw.

as for me i had to put a couple stupid x's as i came very late to the party, even so i was surprised to see it taken fighting saint isnt exactly a common expression. oh well at least i didnt have 'ninja' in the name or like a hundred x's. it still looks pretty tidy.

lol when i had a neopets account ages ago my name was stevie b3. thats what i wanted for live:(

StillTIPPIN187
04-02-2011, 02:26 AM
Some of you guys are a bit confused on what certain tags are.

"Destroy" "Bones" or "Style" are examples of Original GT's.

"sniperJ360xx" is just your very own unique tag.. isn't worth anything to anyone but the value you feel for it youself. nothing original about it to anyone else.

And then you have your half OG ones which would probably be your 2 letter tags like "Blackened Death" or something along those lines.

a Rare GT is like a 3 letter GT.. like CIA or Cat.. also im sure many ppl would also say "FQS" is a rare GT even though it doens't stand for anything (that im aware of) just because you can only make a select amount of 3 letter tags before they are used up. a Rare tag would also be considered OG like the ones i mentioned above.

I had a rare gamertag at one point, before i changed it. It was SirhcNavillus, which is my name backwords. But now its Ramdom McGridle.

TacticalTodger
04-03-2011, 08:51 AM
I had TacticalTodger. It got banned (offensive apparently). How do you know they're removing old gamertags? When? My gamertag now is SAUSAGE R0LLS.... I feel that's original.

Delphan Rane
05-01-2011, 05:04 PM
well if you the only one using "Esphyrian" on the net why did you add 01?

just saying that numbers are the complete opposite of Original. But if it was plainly Esphyrian then that would be a pretty OG tag..

There was a time when you could not re-use your gamertag if your subscription expired. As it was the case when I had 'Delphan Rane' and 'Delphan Rane 1'.

When I created Esphyrian for 360 LIVE, I added the '01' [just in case] so I could keep using 'Esphyrian' and know which instance I was on. Now it's a mute point since MS is allowing re-use of old GT's.

And I am the only one using Esphyrian (.com, etc. ) on the net. :)

I've had a few I've gotten compliments on.

I was originally Murder In Rows, then changed to Hype Free, and now I'm Gnar Wars.

I have a bad habit of getting bored of my tag and always trying to keep it original and sometimes funny. I just can't seem to find one that I want to stick with for the long haul.

05-02-2011, 12:14 AM
I don't know, why don't you tell me?

I have never seen anything like mine before, and I haven't for years. And then I've seen a few since about 2009 or so.

I like mine a lot. I had a few I was fond of, but this one blows them out of the waters (probably because it has a sentimental value to me about my mother and how it happened)

Harder to acquire is probably a better of putting it than rare as every GT is just as rare as every other GT. I have seen a few which would be hard to get but nothing like 'John' or 'Mike' or something like that.

Yeah, but most people with JDM in the tag will more then likely be found on racing games driving an Acura or Honda. It's even more so that even in the racing game community it's pretty uncommon. The two I was talking about was on Halo 3 and another in Forza Motorsport 2.

I love my GT. It is perfect in my eyes. My first GT was my name which is still no taken. My second one was so lame. I mean "CAVS FREAK" is so gay so one day my buddies were talking and they said mr fuzzy was a good nickname for one of our friends and it dawned upon me that that would be an awesome GT. So I get on live and type it in and its taken so I'm like FUCK so McFuzzy came to mind and it was taken. So my friend is like combine them and BAM my GT was created! From time to time I think about changing it but I can't bring myself to do it.

Yes, I have a 'Rare Name', more commenly referred to as an 'Original Gamertag'. Nothing new sorry dude, we've been around since the first xbox... One word names, two word names, no numbers, or double i's, q instead of a g, a z instead of an s, you know, a straight up, real word gamertag, yup, welcome to the oG community!

well if you the only one using "Esphyrian" on the net why did you add 01?

just saying that numbers are the complete opposite of Original. But if it was plainly Esphyrian then that would be a pretty OG tag..

Good stuff! Rep our community!! lol, it literally infuriates me when someone says they're original, and has a name like AmbaLaBamba, wtf? Thats not even a word... Mine is pretty oG, Exauthorize. My name on my old tag used to be Fabulous, but then xbox made me change it :mad:

05-21-2011, 08:31 PM
Now i know I don't have an 'OG' gamertag now... but i used to have 'motion sensors' but changed it because I was getting to many random friend requests. Most of you're gamertags aren't original, just to reak it to you guys....

Sylon00
05-21-2011, 08:50 PM
I tried using "Sylon" without numbers on the end, but XBL denied it saying its already in use. After looking up that name in a gamercard website, that name has nothing associated with it. No GS, no games played, nothing. So that erked me a little. Oh well.

Qonok

I guess mine could be considered rare in the context of no leet speak or numbers added. Been using Qonok for a long time now for things before the Xbox came out and just kept using it.

Good stuff! Rep our community!! lol, it literally infuriates me when someone says they're original, and has a name like AmbaLaBamba, wtf? Thats not even a word... Mine is pretty oG, Exauthorize. My name on my old tag used to be Fabulous, but then xbox made me change it :mad:

Yeah alot of ppl in this thread think that mess makes their tag a OG lmao!

But damn you had fabulous? The name would be the shit to have.. Any idea why MS made you change it?

I mean the guy above me has "Impeach God" for his for 2 years lol.. I dont think "Fabulous" is anyway offending compared to that.. lol.

I know right? I don't know, there was a msg when I got on one day and it said i've had to many complaints on my gamertag so they made me change it. Apparently people I had played with or something didn't like my name and they all filed complaints on it lol. But its weird cause if you type 'Fabulous' into the motto space in edit your profile, it won't let you do it, it says 'your motto contains one or more offensive words and is not permitted on xbox' or something to that nature. I've been wondering since I discovered that if it has something to do with it? No clue, maybe MS wanted my name :p

Another Gamertag that if you type it into the gamertag generator says its taken, but doesn't exist when you add it as a friend is 'Supreme', thats a disgusting name right there...

McGoogles
05-24-2011, 02:14 AM
Mine is somewhat unique. McGoogles used to be an original Xbox gamertag until Microsoft started clearing out names and came across this one. I had the choice of Einsteinium (element), Crusty Undies, or McGoogles. I went with this one as it's my forum name on this website.

The bio of the guy that has "Bob" -

please do not send me any friend requests unless you know me personally. i will decline all requests so dont waste your time or mine

Dude only has 12k gs too.

"Mike" has played 74 games with the total gs of 4835.

"Ed" only has 3470 gs and his recent activity isn't available

The asshole who has my name - "Rusty" has zero gs along with zero played games no avatar no profile and hasn't used it since the original Xbox. Hopefully it'll be one of the tags Microsoft will clear out and make available again.

I do like my tag "Spyder2g" which is a take on my car - a 2nd generation Mitsu Eclipse Spyder :)

It may be, but all of you who say this, are missing the point. It's unique to ONLY you, your the only person it has meaning to. Its not Original though, 'Laynas' is I don't know what, is that supposed to be a word? And 'daddi' is obviously spelled incorrectly... Daddy i'm sure is what it's supposed to say.

Here is how I look at it guys for all of you saying, well my Gamertag is original because its something I like, blah, blah, blah, this number is the year I was born, whatever. Ok, listen... You entering a lobby with your gamertag is exactly like going to an interview for an important job. Would be nice and proper looking? Clean shaven, nice clothes? Or would you look like a bum off the streets? Nope, you'd look nice (i'd hope). Same thing applies with the Gamertag you see, why would I want to go into a lobby with a random ass looking name like this: xX R34p3r Xx, or RedSoxMaster25. Both are as random as you can get. If you enter a lobby with a nice, clean shaven gamertag, that looks good and has meaning? You got the job... Examples: Supreme, Exauthorize :woop:, Magnificent anything along those lines.

Do you guys finally see that if you have a gamertag like 95% of the people that posted in this thread have, you're NOT Original. Numbers/upercase lowercase pattern, they don't make you good...

Let's put it another way: All of you non oG's are like the millions of 10-17 year olds on here that have the same exact name with numbers and all kinds of random shit. Every single oG is unique, because no one else has their Gamertag, only them. If someone wanted my name, they'd have to rearrange it like so: Exauthoriize, 3xauthorise, or something like that, and it looks ugly, and i'd still be the original Exauthorize.

So as a closure to this rant, to everyone in this thread, stop saying your Original because ONLY YOU KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOUR GAMERTAG MEANS!! We are a community, respect it.

-Peace

06-06-2011, 12:07 AM
I like to think that my GT is original, I haven't seen any one else with a GT anywhere close to mine yet.

I couldn't stand having a online name which has any number's involved or misspelt words just so I could have a particular name because someone else had beaten me to the name I wanted, so I came up with something original and unlikely to already be in use on most online communities.

My actual name is Nick, so I came up with Nicholai and then added Wolf onto the end to make my online alias a little more individual and unique, I've been using Nicholai Wolf as my alias for a few years now and I've used the same name on quite alot of different forums and other such communities online without me having to change it slightly because of anyone having the same name or anything.

You're missing the point, The Nomad is completely original though and in my opinion not bland at all. All capitols looks dumb, and the pattern you have is not original, how many other people have the uppercase lowercase pattern in their gamertag? Millions, WAY TO BE ORIGINAL.

And to Schism Octopus, your gamertag is rare/original, Schism is a word, so you're good lol. And i'm 100% positive just 'Octopus' is taken, Xbox has been out for a long time and most people have taken all of the good oG's, or made silver Xbox LIVE accounts to game offline, yes they do that and those profiles are not getting reset by Microsoft because of that reason.

These are awesome GTs! I love mine, I used it as my moniker all over the internet, and have never had anyone else already using it!

A GT I came across once was "Concrete Pigeon", I found that rather funny. One recently was a quote from The Inbetweeners, stylised to get round MS's filters - "BR1EFCASEW4NK3R".

It's supposed to be 'Dramatica Unknown', but Microdicksoft just had to put a character limit on. 20 would've been nice, but no it's 15. I don't think even PS has that kind of crap limitation, not to mention you can use underscores and other special characters too. (I think?)

Sorry. If I ever saw a gamertag with these words: Assassin, Dark, Ninja, Dragon, or God, I'd have to think you're under 13 or something. I came across too many little shits who have these types of names, and this type of thing just kinda seared into my brain. Plus they sound way overused. Hell, my username on this site is so overused and unoriginal, Idk what I was thinking back then. :p

I wouldn't say my gamertag is rare, but it is unique I think. I didn't really know what to do, the first few things I tried were taken and I didn't want to use a generated one or alter what I had. I am surprised though that what I chose wasn't taken 5 years ago.

I guess my gamertag meets what the OP is saying: Tragic Melody

I'd say Dante Kasai is a pretty rare gamertag. You certainly don't see many like it.

Plus, both are technically real words.

Well, jimi is my middle name (James) and Stephen is my first name, and there is only one other Stephen James Vickers in the world so yes, it's a rare name.

As for funny names I saw one that was peanutbutterpaint or something like that. I was cracking up.

Any with the Resident Evil or titled character name.
