Some alias bama won prom queen.
Another name that people use to disguise themselves. This can be done anywhere, but is usually online because it is hard to identify someone's true name except through their IP address, which isn't foolproof.
Variations on the word are aliasing, the present tense verb form, and aliaser, referring to the actual person hiding behind their false name, whose identity will never change (in online situations).
Aliasing is frowned upon because people may think that you're a new person, or in small-community games where everybody knows everybody, possibly even cheating. People like to get to know a regular client's personality, and develop a friendship or rivalry with them. Aliasing disrupts this, since you never know if you're talking with friend or foe.

A name, usually a cool one, used to get women into your pants. Traditionally chosen by your friends. Usually it's best used to give a chick a name that isn't your own so that she doesn't cyber stalk you.
In some cases, this name can get you into serious trouble. Keep it anyway.
