Why do people put xX at the beginning and end of their names?

Is this some sort of self-motivating attempt at intimidation?

    Lol, I remember when I posted the exact same question topic on the PS4 gameFAQs board, and everyone went crazy at me for having the opinion that it looks childish. But it does! They must think it looks cool. I suppose it's just a border around an ID that's already in use.

    Moved to off topic...

    In my former life modding on previous EA titles IronSoldier was taken. IronSoldier123 was also taken so I ended up being called ironsiolder123. Not a day went by where someone didn't make fun of it. I guess otherwise people think the XxXXx look cool when the name is otherwise taken.

    We don’t have much of these on the forums.
  • ...Really? Some names are already taken, so people do some XxX instead of the random numbers at the end of their name, but w/e- really desperate for an whinge here?

    Hopping in here and closing this. Yes, there are different naming conventions out there but some of the comments here are super dismissive of folk using those using conventions. Let's keep it respectful.
