This reminds me of helping my mom to set up an account online for her Discover card. She had no experience choosing a user name, and I remember her first suggestion was "purple". Her second was something so crazy that she'd never remember it.
lol, my dad's is 1st 3 of his 1st and last name follwoed by "sr" and his birth year, it was difficult to find one that he liked, easy to remember, and available
I don't think this holds true any longer. Today's dads were yesterdays gamers. We already have our own in game nicknames. :)
