I can't remember the original genesis of it, but in the old TF2 days I used to be "Dr. Hymie Tugjobs", then over time that transmogrified into "Dr. Hunky Jimpjorps", and now here I am

Despite Lemon's insinuation that I am a British BBC show incarnate, it's the most common of username origins: something dumb you came up with when you were 14. I was playing Maniac Mansion Deluxe, the PC fan-remake of the original game and came upon a gargoyle banister post cap in one of the first rooms that had this description when looked at.
pictorial evidence #1:


Being not quite fluent with the English language at the time, I thought to myself "That's a cool word, I'll use that as my handle from now on!" and that's that. So I suppose you could say I self-identify as a media-gargoyle-banister-kin.

It Came From Steam. Sorry for titlecasing that,  but it sounds like a movie. Basically I used to do weird names in a certain format,  changing every 3 months or so. The 3 longest lasting are: confusion of the damned, rapture of the ancients, and Satan in a zoot suit.

I was trying to think of something that sounds cool but not to pretentious, since it was 2006 and my username was Aegis which sounded cool but also way too pretentious. Since I was a shitnerd, I heard the word "Gyrfalcon" in American McGee's Alice and thought "hmm, if this was 'Gyrofalcon' it would sound like some robot bird." So, I changed my name to that. Quickly I realized that it was a shitty pun nobody would get, and started using the shortened version of just "Gyro."

I keep trying to think of a new username to go with. Candidates have included Sibboleth and FractalCat. Nothing really stands out though.

I hope you don't mind learning new facts, but in Modern Hebrew 'sibolet' means endurance (mostly used in Hebrew to denote physical, esp. heart and lung capability). In addition, Modern Hebrew doesn't have a native 'th' sound of any kind so Shibboleth actually pronounced 'shibolet' in Hebrew. The word itself actually refers to the part of the plant containing grains.

I can write more about this, but since it's unprovoked I'll keep it at this. Consider yourself lucky.

I am profoundly lacking in creativity and decisiveness.

edit from the future: at this point my username was like "placeholder name" or something before I decided ballpit was probably not going to burn me at the stake

Mine started out a a reference to Red vs. Blue (Chupathingy), but then I ran into a few places where it had been taken, and amongst my friends and loved ones I've been known to do a rather hilarous, I'm told, impression of a T-rex to delight children and make my wife roll her eyes and smile. Because my name starts with a T I have called that impression the T[inserttherestofmynamehere]saurus-Rex. So I combined the two. And the Chupasaurus-Rex was born.
