Striker because I think when I first came up with it, it was for some video game and I wanted others to think I was a badass... or something equally as stupid.
The numbers for two reasons:
1) Striker is really common, at least it's almost always taken but mostly not an active user
2) 6879 is just easy for me to remember because it's 6 skip over 7 hit 8 then back to 7 skip over 8 and hit 9. Fast to do with two fingers on the top row of numbers.
Someone once asked me if I chose it after the character in the movie Airplane. I didn't, but I might just start saying I did anyway. Sounds better then for a video game.
mine is just basically a variation of my name. the story behind the 2 is interesting so i'll tell that.
i started off with just n8van, and used that primarily as an email address, then i created n8van2 to use for a second email because the first one was being spammed so I could use the second one as a personal email. It transformed over time into my primary email address, and I use the 2 now for continuity.
So for an extra value woody, put this BigMac into that Quarter-Pound pussy, yes!

Pretty boring, but...
I grew up in a small town and had a cousin in my class at school with the same last name. Our coach (football, baseball, track, PE) had a habit of addressing everyone by their last name. Since I was always taller than my cousin and we are of Scottish heritage, I was always Big Mc and my cousin was Little Mc (I think I came out with the better handle). Anyway, it stuck at least with the kids in my class. It has absolutely nothing to do with the hamburger.
The 63 is because AOL required a number and 63 is a significant number for me.
There, I said it was boring!

Think that's bad, I used to go by fatal_xception. People thought I was some leet haxor when it was really an inside geek joke when I support for the Pavillion project. Imagine being an IT guy in a room full of geeks. Well, my computer was getting constant BSOD's, so an IT guy comes over and on his request, it say fatal xceptions. Thought it was funny an IT guy can't spell it correctly.

I own a corgi that has the same initials that I do (F and J) and due to the similar body compositions (stumpy, thick [Insert weiner joke here]) everyone started calling us both Eff Jay just to iritate me. I'm cool with it though. He's a half way cool dog.
Steyr was the toy of the moment when I needed a forum name many years ago.
Continuity keeps me using it in various forums, etc.
Hard enough remembering various passwords, never mind different usernames as well.
