My thought process for Bull Frog was like this : Callsigns are usually monikers that stick to a person because of some personality quirk. For instance, I once saw a documentary on air force pilots where one of them had the callsign Slag. It sounded cool at first until he explained it was S.L.A.G. and it stood for Screams Like A Girl. It was given to him by his squadron mates as a form of gentle ribbing.
So to make it short, "Bull Frog" stands for my Pilot's cultural background (Which I happen to share with him) It must be quite rare in the Capellan Confederation.
...and besies, who among the Mechwarrior Community would dream of being refered to as a small, gentle and peacefull swamp dwelling amphibian ? The likelyhood of it already being taken was nill.
I might even get to put an updated version of my old MW4 decal on my mech. ( it was an angry looking frog )

I acquired this nickname in highschool as i had a habit of drinking powerade mixed with captain morgan's parrot bay coconut rum! (still do and yes this makes me a young pup ) but i've used this as my handle on forums, military, mmo's, xbl, and pretty much everything. I have had ppl not even know what my real name is in real life haha!

Dragon = Hard, armoured thing that kills you at range, and up close, and steals your women.
Had the name since I was six Been known by it ever since. In the end though it's just what you want to be known by.

In early years on the net i changed my name quite often. Then i found the name Naga Sadow, from the good old time of sith empire and the first hyperspace wars in Star Wars.
But i didn't meant to be as it was. I had the bad habbit to eat a lot on TeamSpeak with activatet mic, so everyone heard me crunch through food and so from Naga it was not far to the german word Nager and then it went to nagetier. Sometimes also nageltier (yeah like nail) but that is only in Fear Combat (pinned enough of my friends to walls the the penetrator)
so i'll stick with nagetier although the correct Call Sign for my Pilots name would be Jackal 00 or genocide

To 99% of everyone, Charles Martel looks like one, talks like one, and dresses like one.

If you've ever read Romance of the Three Kingdoms, then his bada**ery during the Battle at Changban should tell you why

I always enjoyed the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories.
Also stating the obvious will be much more fun.

The bottom line, though, is that I'm wanting to see what names I get through actually playing. That way it means something other than a label I give myself. If Magus fits, then awesome! If not... well, in college I got the name "Shooter" when bowling, due to the way I shot the ball down the gutter almost every damn time.
Considering I'll be playing a Hunchback for a while (given the list of mechs available at medium weight), and my general ability with autocannons was ****-poor back in MW2 and 3, I *MAY* be earning the name Shooter after all...
