What’s in a name?

Starcraft II players use names like Classic, Maru, MarineKing, Terminator, Soulkey, Reality, PartinG, Dream, Hurricane, Super, Solar, Creator, DeParture and sOs. All the most successful players are from Korea and some use English versions of their Korean names like BByong and DongRaeGu (DRG). One player recently won $100,000 at a winner-take-all tournament in Katowice Poland. Ben thinks that I should learn how to play and, when asked what name I should use, thought for a while and then suggested Frack. I wouldn’t win very often and could loudly utter my new name after every game.
