Help with a good online poker name

I'm struggling to come up with a good online poker name. I know that a poker name has such a small impact on the game, but I'm fairly serious about poker and want to get it right. For those who believe that a poker name is completely irrevelant, think about it: if you met two people who were identical in every way except their names, your FIRST impression would be different. Let's say for example, Bob and Quisim(spelt correctly?)

I want the name to be intimidating in a sense; not something badass or scary because most players will see straight through that, and it cannot have the word shark or something like fisheater in it, because through my experiences, the majority of those players are amateurs at best. Remember though, that the name can sound intimidating, but not agressive, because that would give away something of my playing style; I want the name to be sort of ambivalent, so that I can play with lots of different styles without my name suggesting that I am this sort of player.

I'm thinking something that has a nerdish connotation associated with it, since the other players might get the feeling that I really know what I'm doing because I'm a nerd who has nothing better to do.

I'm not sure if I am on the right track with creating a name. For example, one player I read about had his online name called durr... He called it this as it might contribute to someone going to tilt.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, as the best I have come up with is helix 8, which is not that great.

Perhaps a short interrogative phrase would be what you were looking for. Such as, DoIHaveIt, or, AreYouAhead. I can see that being both confusing to a villain as far as your style, and intimidating, making them think twice before making a decision.

Poker name

I find a variety of good names online in pokerstars and Fulltilt. Some are downright humorous, but it appears you want something that will denote sincerity and serious poker play.

I would suggest the following for your perusal:

LosingMakesNoCents

Playing2Win

Ready4Anything

Fuel4Fire

TimesUpLetsPlay

Those are the best I can come up with and hope they help. Take care and best of luck in your pursuits and endeavors.

It would be nice if all the players online would have some sort of recognizable name. Obviously, it's very difficult to come up with enough names to accomplish that. I can't help you with a name, but I think you are definitely on the right track.

Maybe try incorporating a deliberate spelling mistake? That's what I plan on doing when I sign up to Stars in the summer :D, undecided on my name at the moment

That would actually be pretty funny to see on Absolute, I guarantee if you put a bad beat on someone or called a bluff on the river they would report you lol. It would be awesome.
