My name came mostly from wanting to create a dark-ish sounding name when playing multiplayer/competitive games. It was originally Dark something like 10+ years back, then made the switch to Forsaken Plague on Xbox Live... since Forsaken was already taken and I didn't want to add X's and numbers to my name.

I then joined a community known as Xiled Gaming (XG) comprised of divisions at the time (KoG, XGG, SYN) and I happen to join XGC. I eventually switched my name to XGCForsakend and was part of that community for 5 years. I didn't use XGC Forsaken or similar variations because it was also taken -_-;

So in time, I was known by this name by all of my friends. To make sure I was easy to find on forums and other platforms/games, I kept the same name.

I am now part of a new clan/community and know rock an i.a. infront of my steam name

iFargle came from Dingis Fargle, an older forum / XBL name I went by.
That came from my brother calling my oldest dog Dingis.

My name was given to me by a step-brother in 2006 or so as a joke. Just kinda stuck with me.
