My current gamertag is ShineHeavenNow. now, im not srue if I should change it or not. I dont want people to think its stupid. Is it stupid? please be honest. I wouldnt even now what to change it to anyway.  
 
EDIT: I might go with SirRavenSword, or maybe even LordRavenSword. not sure which sounds better or if I shoudl add spaces.

Honestly? Yes it does, it sounds like a song by a boyband.

#3 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Yeah, change it too
 
 xXxShineHeavenNow.xXx
 
Only then will you be cool.

It sounds a bit weird to me but it's not that bad.

#5 Posted by MeierTheRed (4941 posts) -

Why the hell do you care about if others like your gamertag?. If you like it, keep it. Don't change it just cause some jerk on the internet doesn't share the same opinion about it.

#6 Posted by kennybaese (683 posts) -

Well, to be honest, it does sound like the name  of a Christian boy band... but who really cares if people do or don't like your gamertag?

Actually, its a reference to my Fav Anime Hellsing. Im really trying to find a name taht references something I like. Like something cool referencing DBZ or Hellsing thats not already taken. RavenSword was already taken.

You know, that kinda makes it worse.

The "Now" on the end of it is really dumb.

#10 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

I coudl try adding Sir in front of RavenSword, or Count. Those arent taken.

@Toxic:

#16 Posted by CornontheCobbe (2645 posts) -

I think it's pretty cool. But maybe, you could change it to Raven_Sword_Killa? Or something along those lines.

you mean xXx.ShinexHeavenxNow.xXx
 
If you don't have x's inbetween words, people wont respect you. Also as everyone knows, x's are directly linked to penis size. More=bigger.

Both of these sounds better, but yours isn't so dumb that I would react when seeing it in a room
#20 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

Yep, pretty much.

#21 Posted by ZmillA (2288 posts) -

there is much worse out there.

#22 Posted by ajamafalous (12167 posts) -

It's quite dumb in my opinion.

#23 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

Im not sure what would sound better. Sir Raven Sword, or CountRavenSword
#24 Posted by Romination (2777 posts) -

Count Raven Sword has a diabolical edge to it. And it always sounds classier

#25 Posted by Emandudeguyperson (2501 posts) -

Is itsover9000what9000 taken?

#26 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

Sounds like that one song from Collective Soul.

I find its always better if you never base a username on something. It makes you seem shallow.
 
If you must base it on something then for god's sake choose anything other than god damn anime.
#28 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

SirRavenSword is way better.

#29 Posted by JJOR64 (19071 posts) -

Hey, it's another Raven_Sword thread.
 
On topic:  It's not to bad.  Better then Raven_Sword or what ever your GT is at the moment.

#30 Posted by Cheapoz (1064 posts) -

Change it to x741n3x743ev37xN0Wx

#31 Posted by ch3burashka (5263 posts) -

Dude, whatever. As long as it reflects your interests, go with it. If you're just people-pleasin', STFU.

ThatsSoRaven_Sword

#33 Posted by Pinkshley1 (453 posts) -

yea, its pretty lame, but hey! Ive seen far worse.

#34 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

If I did do Sir RavenSword, im not sure how I should spell it. Should I spell it Sir Raven Sword, sir raven sword, or SirRavenSword, or sir ravensword
#35 Posted by Xolare (1285 posts) -

Just keep it Raven Sword for Christ sake. Adding Sir or Count to anything other than having something to do with vampires is lame.

@Xolare:

I cant get Raven Sword because Raven Sword is already taken. Ive got to add something in front of it. Im jsut not sure if I should Spell it Sir RavenSword, or Sir Raven Sword. Because if I spell it ravensword, people might think it means Ravens Word.

A christian boy band.
#39 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

or I can do Lord RavenSword.
#40 Posted by Radar (904 posts) -

Yeah. Sounds like a christian rock band.

#41 Posted by AURON570 (1679 posts) -

No

#42 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

Im jsut curious about when its ok to have spaces in your Gamertag. If SirRavenSword shoudl be spelt Sir Raven Sword or even Sir RavenSword
#43 Posted by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

I'm not a fan of usernames that sound like they could have come from a cheesy anime so yes, change it if you'd like.

#44 Posted by Seedofpower (3949 posts) -
@Raven_Sword: At least is isn't random assortment of letters.
#45 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

Im not sure if RavenSword should be two seperate words or not.
#46 Posted by Bald3rdash (253 posts) -

Oh yes, it is quite stupid.  Go with something fun like
xiMRPANCAKESixtreme
  
On second thought, don't do that, just go with something that doesn't sound like:  
-your a big fan of Shinedown (because let's be honest, they blow)
-you really like Twilight (see above)

#47 Posted by Dalai (7078 posts) -

I wouldn't change your name dramatically.  How about ShineHeavenGet!

#48 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

My gamertag is the best. Anything else is stupid. Either way, you lose.

@Raven_Sword:  Yeah it does sound like a christian boy band. I think you should try "MyWifeIsaSwordSwallower" Not only will people think you have a awesome wife but they'll think your hung like a horse as well. A double bonus, but It does have sword in there. Just to be frank this was a joke.
